Amazon is already the home of a wide-array of Anime collector-sets, toys, comics and films, and now you can find some of the most popular series and movies to stream. Amazon announced the launch of “Anime Strike” today, the first curated on-demand subscription from Amazon.
The new subscription will be available to Prime members in the U.S., and you will get a 7-day free-trial for signing up. After the trial the service will only cost $4.99 a month, and will stream ad-free. Anime Strike includes both classic and newly released episodes of Anime series, all carefully selected and curated by Amazon.
Along with classic anime-series, you will also find harder to watch series, like new episodes from Japan’s popular late-night anime blocks. With the Anime Strike subscription, subscribers can enjoy over 1,000 episodes and movies, ad-free, with new episodes added weekly.
Anime Strike includes recent hits like The Great Passage, and same-day-as-broadcast series with episodes released weekly direct from Japan, including Scum’s Wish and Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga.
Amazon Channels itself offers niche video subscriptions to choose from, including HBO, SHOWTIME, STARZ, PBS KIDS, Acorn TV, A+E Network, AMC, Cinemax and Seeso. You can choose any or all of these services, and you only pay for only the channels you want. You can watch them anywhere you can watch Amazon content, and you get to stream them over Amazon Video.
Video subscriptions with Amazon Channels are available in the US with support for all the devices Amazon Video is available on—Fire TV, Fire and other iOS and Android tablets, connected TVs, game consoles, iOS and Android phones, and laptops.
You can check out the collection being offered on Amazon Anime Strike on the official website at Amazon.com. The company even sorted the content into broader categories like “Top Movies,” “Action Series,” “Popular Series” and more to help new streamers find great content.
