Observer noted the prominence of streaming services in pushing the popularity of television shows in today's media environment, and noted that Americans have "a varied and eclectic taste."

The first 13-episode season of the television anime adaptation of Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia manga premiered in April 2016. The fourth season premiered in Japan last October. Funimation, Hulu, and Crunchyroll streamed the season as it aired in Japan. The show premiered on Toonami last November. The anime will have a fifth season.
