Amazon today announced the launch of Anime Strike, the first curated on-demand subscription from Amazon Channels. Available to Prime members in the U.S. for $4.99 per month after a 7-day free trial, Anime Strike includes a deep library of classic and newly released episodes carefully selected and curated by Amazon.
Anime fans can now discover classics, exclusives, and hard-to-find content (like new episodes from Japan’s famed late-night anime blocks). With the Anime Strike subscription, subscribers can enjoy over 1,000 episodes and movies, ad-free, with new episodes added weekly. Amazon promises that anime fans will get anime episodes with vivid action, deep plotlines and relationships, complex characters, stunning visuals, strong narratives, and plot twists, and same-day-as-broadcast series with episodes released weekly direct from Japan, including Scum’s “Wish and Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga.”
