posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Amazon U.S. confirmed with ANN on Thursday 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 U.K.'s Prime Video service is currently streaming all three of the anime, which all premiered in Japan earlier this month. ViVid Strike! premiered on October 1, The Great Passage premiered on October 13, and the Chi's Sweet Adventure CG-animated series premiered on October 2.
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. This season's anime on the Noitamina programming block is The Great Passage.
Amazon Prime Video has also streamed the Crayon Shin-chan Gaiden: Alien vs. Shinnosuke anime series, and will stream Goro Miyazaki and POLYGON PICTURES' Ronja the Robber's Daughter television anime as well as the live-action [email protected] South Korean series.
