This PV actually gives me hope that Zero-G might nail it after all.

Man, Amazon is really messing with local anime distributors. This will take forever to get licensed. I wish Amazon at least put in the effort to dub their properties like Netflix does.

Why are the guys wearing boxer shorts? They should be buck naked! This is an unacceptable deviation from the source material.

I don't think it affects things. CR released the Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress movie in theaters very quickly and Funimation released the TV blurays quickly after Japanese release (although they are slower with others) Then look at the boat load of Sentai titles which Amazon streamed (Made in Abyss, Land of the Lustrous, Girl's Last Tour, etc) Justin already mentioned that these services don't care and don't want to deal with the home video licenses.

This affects more things than I th ink you realize. They kabeneri blue rays were longer than normal for Funimation standards compared to when it first aired.

The fact that Amazon doesn't care much about dubs still pisses me off

The Japanese bluray release was nearly 18 months after the first JP release. Compare that to Funi’s release of Attack on Titan Season 2, which was just 8 months after the JP.
Also, your examples of MiA, Lustrous, etc, don’t really count, as they were announced months before airing date that Sentai had already licensed them. Amazon was simply the medium through which Sentai streamed them (in the US). Sentai’s acquisition of Scum’s Wish would’ve been a good example, and they will be releasing that far faster than Funi did with Kabaneri.
Finally, I know that Amazon/Netflix don’t care about physical releases, but I admitted that Netflix at least goes through the trouble of dubbing their properties in multiple languages, but Amazon just doesn’t care.

All of that is within the standard time frame of Funi/Sentai releases of around 1 year (i.e. +/1 a couple montsh) sometimes close to 2 years after for some that are NOT Amazon titles. And if what you said is true, that Amazon streaming licenses delays home video releases then why don't they also interfere with the ones Sentai licenses? Why are they the exception when they account for the majority of their recent licenses? In other words, if Amazon really wanted to block home video releases, why would they bother sub-licensing from Sentai?

Scum's Wish announced quite a bit after Amazon's stream is still coming in the standard 1 year after JP bluray (JP last vol: August 30, 2017, US sentai release: Sep 25, 2018), so even with titles where Amazon licenses from Japan (Noitamina) and not from Sentai, there's still no delay.

Going back to my point of this being the standard time frame, there are still many titles since the CR+Funi partnership where Funimation agreed to release the CR shows on BD/DVD from that point that still have home video announcement, like Schwarzesmarken, Classroom Crisis, Terraformars S2 (on CR, licensed by Viz, last JP BD in Dec. 2016 and no sign of BD by Viz yet) or the ever so popular Kuroko's Basketball. Basically there's no pattern at all that proves Amazon delays home video licensing or releases beyond the norm.
