Now Playing: Tokyo Ghoul - Official Trailer

Every once in a while, a good anime series will pop up as a free download on PSN, and the latest anime freebies available for PS4 owners are worth grabbing now. The first seasons of Tokyo Ghoul and Black Clover are each available for free to download and keep on US PSN. And while each show is technically available to stream through services like Hulu, Crunchyroll, and Funimation, it's nice to actually own a piece of media that may eventually get pulled from said streaming platforms.

To claim each series, you have to search the title on your PS4 console or in the PlayStation Video app on Android. The shows won't appear if you try just searching in PlayStation Store online. Twitter user Wario64, who first spotted the deal, shared screenshots of the anime series marked as free when you search on PS4:

Tokyo Ghoul is a must-watch anime that follows Ken Kanedgy, a college student who gets attacked by a flesh-eating creature known as a ghoul and subsequently becomes a half-ghoul who must learn to live in the worlds of both humans and ghouls. Then there's Black Clover, which tells the story of Asta, a young orphan boy born without powers in a world where everyone is born with a magical ability. Together with his friend Yuno, Asta becomes determined to grow stronger (despite his lack of magical prowess) and become the next Wizard King, the most powerful wizard around.

There's no knowing how long these anime series will be free, so act fast and claim them now if you're interested in owning them.

While anime is on your mind: heads-up that Twitch Prime members can get 30 days of free Crunchyroll Premium now through June 16 (FYI, if you have Amazon Prime, you have Twitch Prime). Plus, catch up on the new anime series you should be watching this spring.
