This sounds cool! I hope they add more titles, like the World Masterpiece Theater stuff!

The article says you can stream shows in a browser as well as use the apps, but I'm not seeing any way to do that on their site yet, just links to the apps.

Emi, Yumi, AND Persia?! Well, I'm all in. Mami is a bonus since I still have my Anime Sols DVDs.

At least not in Finland, probably not in Europe at large either.

I can vouch that it works in the US, but that's blatantly obvious. Still, now's a good time to binge through Kaiba as any.

I believe all of the launch titles are currently streaming on Amazon Prime in the US. That's gonna make this a really tough pitch for consumers, which is a shame. I hope it is able to grow as I like the concept behind it.

Speaking of RetroCrush, I've been watching the clips they put of various anime on their YouTube channel and let me tell ya, the names they put for their videos are pretty interesting Laughing

Hopefully this does well, it's nice to have a streaming service focused on primarily retro content.

Free tends to be a pretty good pitch for most consumers Laughing

I'd imagine though that this is simply the case that the rights holders aren't tied to a specific service, so have no issues putting their content on as many services as will pay them for it.

Their Twitter account says browser streaming is coming soon.

The company that operates this service and its sisters syndicate content to a variety of platforms. I doubt you'll see many exclusives on RetroCrush. Their usual MO is to license material and spread it as far as they can.
