Amazon U.S. posted placeholder pages for the Chi's Sweet Adventure, Onihei, The Great Passage, ViVid Strike!, Shin chan Spin-off vol.1: Aliens vs. Shinnosuke, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS, and Scum's Wish anime for its Amazon Prime Video service earlier this week.
Both The Great Passage and Scum's Wish are part of Fuji TV's Noitamina block. The Shin-chan spinoff premiered in Japan last August, with a second season that Amazon streamed in Japan in November. Chi's Sweet Adventure, The Great Passage, and ViVid Strike! premiered last October. Onihei premiered on Monday. Scum's Wish premieres on Thursday.
Amazon U.S. previously confirmed with ANN last October that its Amazon Prime Video service will stream The Great Passage, ViVid Strike!, and Chi's Sweet Adventure anime series. The company told ANN that it "sometimes [releases] programming at different times in different countries." The company added that it doesn't have a specific release window to announce yet for when the three anime will stream on Amazon U.S.
Amazon had announced in March that it had signed a deal with Fuji TV to exclusively stream series from Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block going forward. Amazon U.S.'s Prime Video service streamed the previous two series on that programming block — Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and Battery the Animation — with new episodes added near simultaneously to the Japanese air time and simultaneously with the stream on Amazon Japan's Prime Video service.
