Anime has become a worldwide phenomenon thanks to the numerous streaming sites showing both dubbed and subbed versions of popular anime on demand. That said, a lot of these sites are third-party, which means random bugs and glitches aren’t uncommon.

In this article, we’re talking about 9anime’s “request is invalid” error, its causes and what you can do to fix the problem. 

What causes this problem?

The error is a general connectivity error and can happen for a number of reasons. Some of the most common causes include the following.

  • Internet connectivity issues.
  • 9anime’s server is down.
  • Corrupt browser cache or data.

How to fix this?

Here are four fixes you can try out. 

Restart your router

Power cycling your network equipment is the fix to more issues than you can think. More often than not, connectivity issues can be caused by an underlying bug in your router and can be fixed by rebooting.

Check 9anime’s server status

The next thing to do is to check if 9anime is online and functioning. You can use third-party websites like Isitdownorjustme or Updownradar to check if something’s wrong with the website. If there’s a problem on 9anime’s end, you will have to wait until they can resolve the situation. 

Clear your browser’s data

Corrupt files in your cache or otherwise can cause this error as well. Clear them out to see if you can get Chrome to work.

Step 1: Type in chrome://settings/clearBrowserData in your browser’s address bar and hit Enter.
