  • (2020-11-15) Bryce Pirie: is there any chance that this extension could be compatible with https://www.kimanime.com if reconfigured slightly?, because that site is running off the original kissanime.ru web UI data. so it is the closest thing to kissanime.ru being revived, so this extension should be compatible with just a bit of reconfiguring and operation syncing, which would at least make it easier for you to pull off. at least think about it, even check the site out for yourself and see if you can do anything with it.

  • (2020-09-04) ichase: Was perfect for use with Kissanime. Was. RIP Kissanime :(
  • (2020-08-24) CJ Kornie: RIP Kissanime, you will be missed
  • (2020-08-24) Marek Ďurana: I hope it will start to work with kissanime.nz
  • (2020-08-23) vivaan goswami: Kissanime is down, however when it was running, this extension used to be great. It saddens me that I have to remove this extension due to kissanime being down. Well, it was fun while it lasted
  • (2020-08-21) Annewende Elzinga: Kissanime.ru has been taken down, sad times...I did love this extension so much!
  • (2020-08-17) Zeareath Frost: It worked amazingly, thank you. RIP KissAnime.
  • (2020-08-16) Ismael (Is): well, that's that! Kissanime is gone thus this add-on is obsolete
  • (2020-08-15) Justin Lee: Brings a whole new experience to Kissanime. Innovative video player for beta servers. Really loved the customisable seeking feature.
  • (2020-08-15) Ishtiak Hossain Ninad: The Kissanime site is down so what will happen to this extension now?
  • (2020-07-22) hour: if you all gon hate on this just use anime-planet.com (like crunchyroll) and get this extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adblock-%E2%80%94-best-ad-blocker/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom?hl=en-US watch anime for free easy and if the beginning ad gets through just refresh and it shouldnt show
  • (2020-07-09) Haram Police: i normally watch anime away from my parents using this site, due to sometimes innapropiate popups, opening sometimes porn websites, or just innapropiate ads. but now i can watch anime from kissanime with no worry. perfect extension. 10/10
  • (2020-06-23) Ray: When I click on Reddit discussion it opens a new tab and quickly closes it. Why does this happen?
  • (2020-04-16) Natsu Soma: its pretty good just add ad block to it than we are on the way to awesomeness
  • (2020-04-03) Connor Bradshaw: bring back where you could adjust where the player bar was, i liked it at the top
  • (2020-03-06) Christian Molina: It was superb when the player was the previous one. It lets me continue where I left watching an episode. Now the player has no auto resume. Sad. Also the resolution selector and force low resolution is gone. Now I'm mega sad. Well, I think it's temporary because of the revamp, so I'm still waiting.
  • (2020-02-19) R. H. Rana: Even though it doesn't auto solve captcha or block ads anymore but it's still very helpful extension
  • (2020-02-16) Blake Hawco: I have been a long time user and fan of this extension. The recent update has removed the feature that displayed the most recent episode for pinned anime. This feature made it very easy to know if a new episode had been released. Another issue prior to this update was that the pinned anime list would not appear on the homepage initially and would generally only display if refreshed- somewhat defeating its purpose. Hopefully these features regain full functionality in the future! Thank you for your hard work.
  • (2020-02-13) Robinde67 “Deedee”: I respect the choice to remove the adblocker, and it still is a useful extension which i have been using for quite some time... however, asking for the "reading browser history" permission, even if transparent about it, is a terrible choice to do, especially since the source code is not available afaik. People value their privacy in this day and age, seeing that permission is like waving red in front of a bull. If the FAQ is correct and the only thing the permission does is removing the brief flash, i'm sure people would rather have the flash back than to see that much more jarring permission pop up.
  • (2020-02-11) χ̶я̶ι̶м̶ѕ̶σ̶η̶: The only useful feature for me is the Last Watched Episode on the Hompage and the links for Torrents and other sites. Other features I don't turn on because they are either buggy, annoying or I had other script and extension alternatives. Now this extension is asking for my Browsing History, Declined and Uninstalled.
  • (2020-01-15) William Jones: Very useful extension that makes it much easier to find and watch new episodes of ongoing shows. I've had slight problems with it showing up on the page but refreshing the page has always fixed that issue for me.
  • (2019-07-21) LilGlitchy: The alternative video page isnt working out. i toggled it on and off twice and the page still doesnt change. plz if anyone has away to fix this it would be great
  • (2019-05-28) TheBeastMaster: This is completely useless was working perfect before now they added 5 times more adds and made this useless
  • (2019-04-22) Jia Yongng: please update ASAP,currently this is spring 2019 but extension still winter 2019
  • (2019-04-13) G Kong: Used to removed ads but now doesn't.
  • (2019-03-21) mrmr4918: please remove the subscribe to pewdiepie banner in light of the recent shooting
  • (2019-03-15) It would have been better if they could bring the ad block service again. Giving it 4 stars. If they add the ad-blocker, i would give it 5 stars. Well, nothing can be done as kissanime forced them. So i would request you to add pop up blocker service instead if possible.
  • (2019-01-12) potato.exe: yeah obviously it doesn't work for ad blocking but they literally had to it is still a really handy extension and as someone that used it before and after the change i still appreciate it and all the devs have done
  • (2019-01-03) TDWPfreak6325: Alternate Video Page doesn't appear to work.
  • (2018-12-02) ziLch: it was cool back then but kinda useless right now. i cant watch anime if this extension is open
  • (2018-09-21) Barry the Bee: This extension was amazing. It enabled me it enabled me to watch all of the shows that i didn't have access to and discover countless more, for free, without ads, and without the crappy sire design that the vanilla kiss anime site has. Now, this extension is useless. What does the site redesigning matter if there are to many virus riddled ads to even begin enjoying the content? Your team seems very competent. As i previously said, this extension WAS great and well made. Figure out a way to bypass those scumbag's ad block detector and IP-blocker, or I am sure you will lose most of your users.
  • (2018-09-04) Hasyidan Paramananda: Actually This Is Good, But Can U Fix like 2/3 line of code, make it turn off when not open "kissanime" url ?
  • (2018-08-11) Krislyz: Perfection.
  • (2018-07-20) Andreas karlsson: Completely useless. First it didnt block any popups which rendered kissanime useless. Sorry but 5 popups to press play on a video? I hope you burn in hell whoever decided that was a good idea. And then they fixed that and now videos wont load while essentials is enabled.
  • (2018-07-03) DAWINGWINGDUMPRLING :3: Easy to use and works!
  • (2018-06-30) Arnar Arason: Ey this ended up getting me ip banned from KissAnime, you might want to find a workaround for that
  • (2018-06-28) Leon Hribar: it doesnt autocapcha not even remove ads just makes it more buggy
  • (2018-06-27) C3RiAN: It's great... If other uses don't want ads I recommend zooming in the screen with ctrl+ to 200% and getting popper blocker to block pop-ups... So yeah this extension is great, it's just recently kissasian changed their domain! Must have for kissanime users!
  • (2018-06-23) Jono Miu: Why on earth did you remove the adblock? This is ridiculous
  • (2018-06-21) blank man: Doesn't work like it use to.
  • (2018-06-21) scousersuk: All the MAL integration is broken right now or is it just me because I can't log in or check ratings using it
  • (2018-06-20) J-Thugger: i loved this app but then kissAnime ruined it so i uninstalled it I feel bad for the developer for haveing to deal all the bull
  • (2018-06-18) Rasv: removed the only 2 good features ad block & auto captcha. You do realize those are the only 2 reasons people got this in the first place right? lmfao what a waste. if u add an auto rapidvideo captcha skip I might change my rating
  • (2018-06-15) Deja Long: The new update just made it so useless :/
  • (2018-06-10) Shi Lilith: i love this app i'm sad we can't hide ads anymore but i understand, (tho i hated the captcha more than the ads) but the option to show last watched anime episode isn't really working, sometimes it will be there on the homepage but not always people really shouldn't complain about the ads, it pays for the site but it's the pop ups that are bad in my option 5 stars from me
  • (2018-06-10) Kax: The extension may lose it purpose for example the "ads blocking" and "captchas auto solve" features because they had an agreement with KissAnime's admin which is "to unban the people that used the extension you have to remove those 2 features". But the developer planned to put "Pop up ads blocker" feature, that would be really helpful. I lived with bunch of ads on KissAnime page before I use this extension so I can do it again but those "Pop Up Ads" are extremely annoying.

  • (2020-10-04, v:3.5) Ishtiak Hossain Ninad: Turn Essentials for KissAnime into Essentials for KissAsian
    Don't make this go to waste turn this extension into "Essentials for KissAsian". It would be great to have this extension there.
  • (2020-08-15, v:3.5) Orion Martin: recovery for bookmark list on kissanime.ru
    since the official site has been taken down, is there any way we can recover our lost bookmarks that we saved hundreds of anime on?
  • (2020-08-15, v:3.5) Justin Lee: Similar Chrome Extension for Other Anime Websites
    Since the legitimate (official) kissanime.ru has been taken down due to copyright, would you create a similar extension for other websites? Some popular websites: 9anime.to, 4anime.to, etc. I really like the customisable seek function, as it saves a lot of time watching an anime series.
  • (2020-04-30, v:3.4) Hello would you add other websites or only kissanime ?
    there are animes on other websites that cant be found on kissnamie so i was wondering if you can add them too
  • (2020-04-16, v:3.3.1) J D: New Build
    Greetings, I used your new build today, and unfortunatly it immediatly blocked my IP. I know that was part of the fix in today's patch, but there might have been a problem.
  • (2020-04-02, v:3.3.1) B.n. Vrgozo: confusing to say the least
    i might just be having an isolated issue but today specifically i had the most strangest things happening mainly on the latest update page for the currently airing anime. as the page loads in its fine but just as its about to finish loading the color on the page will suddenly go black and white just the colored parts like the rest the page still looks untouched but if that doesn't happen the text will load backwards from right-to-left as appose to from left-to-right or even stranger black-and-white, upside-down, and backwards.i simple refresh or just going to another website then returning sometimes helps so it might be the site itself just thought i'd check if anyone else was having the same issue
  • (2020-03-26, v:3.2.4) john chavez: Missing video player
    the most recent update has made all the video players disappear even though the change log says this was fixed
  • (2020-02-18, v:3.0.4) Jaydeep Patel: So the skip and advance amounts can't be edited
    I'm sure that you are aware of this but the skip and advance time amounts can't be edited more specifically they don't save and every time I use them they change back.
  • (2020-02-17, v:3.0.4) S Hallstrom: Redirects
    Any time I try to watch a video instant redirect. I understand you have to use those disgusting ads. Is it necessary to have a pop up right over my name it's hard to get to my bookmarks. The website is getting very annoying to navigate. I contribute also not much but $1 is a $1. I find myself using 9anime more than kiss anime. I'd rather use the kiss anime site. I hope there is a solution.
  • (2020-02-16, v:3.0.4) Stefan Gross: Pinned - Episode/Visited Links
    How can I get back the current episode back link back to my pinned list? I mainly watch on one computer and it was such a blessing to be able to see directly where a new episode was uploaded (not visited link color).
  • (2020-02-12, v:3.0.3) Justin Lee: Keboard shortcut - Seek forward and backward
    Please add a function where users can customise the seek time to 3s, 5s, 10s, and 15s. I am used to seeking at 3s, but the new update is 5s, and it kind of irritates me. Nevertheless, thank you for your extension.
  • (2020-02-11, v:3.0.3) Kavanaugh Kohls: New Permissions
    Why request permission to view my browsing history? What data will these new permissions be allowing you to see?
  • (2019-11-11, v:v2019.1.14.1) Daniel Kristensen: The custon player does not work with the Nova server
    When custom player is enabled the video cannot be loaded using the Nova server. The video keeps on looping, trying to load. Disabling custom player fixes it.

  • (2019-06-10, v:v2019.1.14.1) Evan Mckinney: API not working?
    Not sure if this is a problem impacting the entire extension or just my own, but I'm not able to set my own custom background for my KissAnime, even though it was working fine until a week or so ago. When I go into the setting to fix this and maybe change out the wallpaper, nothing takes and at the top right the status for the API stats "not working."
  • (2019-05-01, v:v2019.1.14.1) Sync& Steam: Custom Player
    The custom player is not loading anymore, the issue started about a week ago. it does not load the custom player and instead loads the sites default player.
  • (2019-04-10, v:v2019.1.14.1) Jimmy Tran: No Ad Removal
    I have disabled every other extension except for Google tools (docs, slides, etc.) and reinstalled Kiss Anime Essentials, but I still have ads for an unknown reason. So far, I've been watching anime despite the ads with no pop-ups (probably due to other ad blocker extensions and Google settings). I would like to know if this feature has been disabled. Thanks!
  • (2019-03-24, v:v2019.1.14.1) Mr.Negitive: Custom Player is not working
    Before the issue the Custom player was great, I got to to auto play my videos and I was can automatically go on fullscreen. But since yesterday I had this issue to when the Custom player is no longer there but is replaced by a stretched out RapidVideo Server. Will this be fixed?

    I am using a perfectly fine background image and when i go to the website it just shows the normal black website, my Background Color (for transparent images) is also set to clear and i have tried it with other colours and they just change the background to that colour. my picture's url is here http://orig09.deviantart.net/9581/f/2015/203/9/9/gate_wallpaper_by_redeye27-d92fq26.jpg

    It seem like that function is broken ??!! When I installed that extension and tried it, it show me the last ep of "one punch man"... Than I watch many more anime, but the last watched stuff is still on "one punch man"...
