This one is actually surprising, I expected Funiroll to get this.

Wow, I guess CR really won't be getting anything this season. I'm not going to watch this one, but I know it's decently anticipated. Looking at shows that have similar vibes to this one, I wonder if Sentai are also going to get Hajimete no Gal and Gamers!

One more show to watch. Whether through legal means or not, doesn't matter, I don't give a iota about their exclusivity...

Well...at least we had the tiny golden age of legal anime streaming for awhile there (Fall 2016 - Winter 2017) where basically everything was available on one streaming service.

I hope everyone who's paying for Anime Strike is proud of what they've accomplished. They've shown Amazon that anime fans are willing to put up with any shitty business practice that's thrown at them.

Anime Strike is basically to streaming what Aniplex of America is to physical releases. Instead of everyone banding together and saying "NO", thereby forcing the big companies to change their methods, there are always gonna be the handful of people who have to ruin it for everyone else. Confused

Ah man, I was actually looking forward to this series, weird animation aside.
When Funi+CR partnered up, I thought I'd be watching more anime than ever, but it's the complete opposite because of Anime Strike.

Anime Strike would be way better if they didn't use those tiny closed captions subtitles that I can barely see even on my giant tv Rolling Eyes

What we have accomplished is and always will be for our own personal entertainment. We are fans for ourselves first.

There is a way to make the prime+strike cheaper and that is to find others (people you can trust) to share the cost of at least prime.

Not happy about this. Sentai is grabbing a bunch of shows I want to watch and locking them behind a service that I cannot use because I don't live in the US. Even when they add them to Amazon Prime Video in Canada the streaming service is absolute shit. Episodes not being uploaded on time, episodes missing for weeks, English subs not being available when a new episode is uploaded, and a show sometimes getting removed then re-added later on. I can't finish Grimoire of Zero because they haven't put a new episode up in almost 3 weeks (stuck on episode 9 right now). Crunchyroll and Funimation have the decency to let you know when an episode is delayed and yet Amazon seems to upload when they feel like it. How can anyone praise or be happy with that level of service?

Crunchyroll and Funimation are companies that understand anime and the fans love of anime and have anime fans in charge.

Sentai is a company that needed money, so they sold anime to a giant company that don't understand anime, and probably couldn't explain what anime is to that company.
Amazon is a company that sell anime the same way they sell a tire, a lamp or anything they sell in their site.
Someone (Sentai) tell them that are money to be made on anime. That's why they jumped in the anime boat.

They don't seem to understand the concept of simulcast, that anime fans want to watch a show as near as possible the same time that are show in Japan. (Amazon Prime is such a bad service with delays, missing episodes, small subtitles, etc)
Crunchyroll and Funimation show that anime fans are willing to pay money if the price is right and if the service is good enough and that model worked well.

Now we have a soulless giant company with lots of money but no heart and understanding on how anime fans work.
That's why i would prefer that anime stayed a niche were the people involved are fans of the product they were selling. Go to more mainstream companies brings bad things for real fans most of the time.

If this continue, legal anime streaming in the west will go back years.
