This guide will explain how to install the WatchNixtoons2 addon on Kodi. This method is effective for all devices compatible with Kodi, including Amazon FireStick, NVIDIA SHIELD, Android TV boxes, Mac, Windows PCs, tablets, and smartphones. Before we install the addon, let me clarify what it can do and whether it’s safe.
Note: This addon is not compatible with Kodi 20 Nexus. For Kodi 20 compatible addons, visit our updated list of Kodi addons.
Cartoons and anime are only for children, says nobody. Watching cartoons or anime is one of the best ways to cherish the kid within us all. They’re great for laughing off some stress and forgetting about your worries, at least temporarily.
We used to wait for our chance to watch cartoons on TV. But now, thanks to the digital era, you can watch cartoons and anime at any hour online. However, picking out a trusted source can be painstakingly difficult, considering that there are plenty of options available.
Check out Watch Nixtoons2, the perfect addon for your quest to find a reliable cartoon/anime source. This Kodi addon is the successor of WatchNixtoons, which lets you stream cartoons and anime for free.
WatchNixtoons2 pulls content from www.watchcartoononline.io. The addon provides movies, TV series, anime, and other media hassle-free. If you are using the original WatchNixtoons, you should give version two a try. WatchNixtoons2 can be accessed from the AK47 Repository.
Attention, Kodi Users! Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect to a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming). I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3 months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.

Is WatchNixtoons2 Safe and Legal?
FireStickTricks.com doesn’t verify the legality of any third-party applications or services. The Watch Nixtoons 2 Kodi addon lets you stream cartoons and anime for free. Watching copyrighted content is deemed illegal in many regions, and your government and ISP (internet service provider) may be aware of what you’re doing. If you get caught breaking the law, you could be fined or prosecuted.
FireStickTricks.com doesn’t encourage or endorse any kind of illegal activity. This guide is for educational purposes and should only be applied to stream content that is freely available in the public domain.
To ensure the safety of installing the AK47 Repository on your device, I tested the repository URL using VirusTotal, a website that analyzes files and URLs for viruses, worms, trojans, and other malicious content. It turns out the repository URL is safe. No security vendors have flagged it as malicious.
How to Install WatchNixtoons2 Kodi Addon
Now, I’ll show how you can install the famous WatchNixtoons2 addon on your Kodi app. WatchNixtoons2 is now available on the famous The Crew Repository. Previously, it was hosted on another repository.
To install the addon, you’ll have to go through the following three sections. I have split the instructions into three parts so you can easily follow along. So without further ado, let’s get started.

Part 1: Enable Unknown Sources on Kodi
In this part, we’ll enable the unknown sources options in the Kodi settings. This allows us to load third-party repositories and addons on the Kodi app. By default, the unknown sources option on Kodi is turned off for the safety of users. But as The Crew Repository and WatchNixtoons2 are entirely safe for users, we’ll enable the option to load them.
Without enabling unknown sources, we won’t be able to install The Crew Repository and the WatchNixtoons2 addon. So, here’s how to enable unknown sources on Kodi:
1. On the Kodi home screen, click on the Settings Gear icon located on the top left side of your screen – just below the Kodi logo.
2. Select the System tile located on the bottom right side of your screen.
3. On the System page, scroll down and select the Add-ons tab on the left-hand-side menu.
4. On the right-hand side, scroll down and turn on Unknown sources.
5. You’ll receive a warning sign about the consequences of allowing access to third-party sources, click Yes to continue.
Part 2: Install The Repository With WatchNixtoons2
In this part, we’ll install the repository that hosts the WatchNixtoons2 addon – The Crew Repository. In Kodi, addons are available via repositories. For instance, the official repository of Kodi contains all types of addons, including video, weather, music, etc.
As WatchNixtoons2 is not available on the official repo of Kodi, we’ll install The Crew Repository. Follow the steps below to load the famous The Crew Repository on your Kodi app:
1. On the Kodi home screen, click on the Settings Gear icon located just below the Kodi logo.
2. Select the File Manager tile located on the top left side of your screen.
3. On the File Manager page, select Add source.
Note: If you have already added multiple repositories in your Kodi app, you’ll find the Add source option at the end of the list.
4. Add file source window will appear. Then, select <None>.
5. A URL window will appear on your screen. Enter the official URL of The Crew Repository – https://team-crew.github.io. After that, click on the OK button.
Note: The URL we have provided is the official link of The Crew Repository. At FST, we don’t host/own the repository, nor are we affiliated with it.
6. You have to set a name for the source. To do that, click the box under Enter a name for this media source.
7. Enter crew as the media source name and click on the OK button.
Note: You are free to set a custom name, but I recommend entering something similar to The Crew Repository’s name.
8. To save changes, click on the OK button.
9. You’ll see the name of the source in the File Manager’s list – in our case, it’s crew.
10. Now, press the back button on your FireStick and select the Add-ons tile from the Settings page.
11. On the Add-ons page, scroll down and click Install from zip file.
12. Install from zip file window will appear. Select The Crew or the name of the source you have selected for The Crew Repository.
13. Select repository.thecrew-x.x.x.zip file.
Note: x refers to the number of The Crew Repository’s version number. At the time of writing, the version of the repo is 0.3.4. But it can change in the future.
14. Wait for a few seconds until a notification pops up from the top right side of your screen – THE CREW REPO Add-on installed.
Part 3: Install WatchNixtoons2
We are done with all the pre-requisites for installing the WatchNixtoons2 Kodi addon. Now, I’ll show how you can use The Crew Repository to install the addon on your app. So, let’s get started:
1. Stay on the same page and scroll up to select Install from repository.
2. On the next page, scroll down and select THE CREW REPO.
3. Scroll down and select Video add-ons.
4. You’ll come across the list of all the video addons hosted on THE CREW REPO. Scroll all the way down and pick WatchNixtoons2.

Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.

Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
