On Twitter, the website kissanime trended–and for a devastating reason. According to Twitter users, kissanime has been taken down. Many people who have watched on the website for years are devastated at the loss of their go-to service for watching anime. Kissmanga was also reportedly affected.
"2020 couldn't possibly get any worse"

Many avid watchers of the site are mourning this loss by posting memes as a way to cope. Some are truly heartbroken because it was their way to access anime in places that didn’t have it for free. Others relied on it because the anime on the website wasn’t available at all in their countries.
Upon looking up other kissanime sites, kissanime.nz seems to be working but it’s not confirmed if it’s run by the same team. The one that people went to most was kissanime.ru and, upon checking, it truly is down and out, saying that the site will be closed forever. Ouch.
It is truly a loss for the anime and manga community. We mourn your loss, fellow geeks. We hope you all feel better.
