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 PC, tablets, and smartphones. Before we install the addon, let me clarify what it can do and whether it’s safe.
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.
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
Since WatchNixtoons2 is a third-party addon, installing it requires a bit more effort. But don’t worry, I’ll show you exactly what to do.
To aid your understanding, I divided the WatchNixtoons2 installation process into three sections:
Section 1: Tweak a Kodi setting
Section 2: Add a repository source
Section 3: Install the repository and the WatchNixtoons2 addon
Let’s get started with the first section.
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 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.
Section 1: Tweak a Kodi Setting
Kodi is an open-source application, which means you can install any third-party addon. But you need to enable “Unknown sources” first. You can do so by following the steps below.
1. Launch the Kodi application.
2. Select settings (the gear icon).
3. Select the System tile.
4. Scroll down to the Add-ons tab.
5. Enable Unknown sources in the right portion of the screen by selecting it.
6. Click Yes on the warning window that appears.

It’s time to add the source of the AK47 Repository, where the WatchNixtoons2 addon is hosted.
1. Return to the Kodi home screen and select settings again.
2. Select the File manager tile.
3. Select Add source. You may do this on either side of the screen.
4. Click <None> in the window that appears.
5. Now, type in https://a4k.redditreaper.tech/addons/ and click OK.
Note: The repository is not owned, hosted, or distributed by FireStickTricks.com. It is hosted and distributed by the external site linked above.
6. Select the box under Enter a name for this media source, enter the name a4k, and click OK. On the screen shown below, click OK again.
Section 3: Install the Repository and the Watch Nixtoons 2 Addon
1. Return to the Kodi home screen and select settings one more time.
2. Select Add-ons.
3. Select Install from zip file.
4. Click a4k in the list of files.
5. Select the file plugin.video.watchnixtoons2-0.5.1.zip. The numbers at the end of the file name may differ, but don’t worry about that. Just make sure you choose the file containing watchnixtoons2.

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.
