Amazon shuts down Anime Strike streaming service

A little under a year after Amazon launched their dedicated Anime Strike service, the streaming branch has shut up shop for good. With affirmation from an Amazon representative, Forbes reported on the closure and subsequent shift of all Strike shows back into Prime Video.

This reshuffle also applies to Strike’s sister Bollywood channel Heera. In especially good news to all non-US Amazon customers, who had no legal access to either channel, Amazon stated: “We have decided to move the curated catalogs of Anime Strike and Heera into Prime Video so that more customers can enjoy this content as part of their Prime membership”.

So yes, one and all can now view Amazon’s anime content with a regular Amazon Prime membership, without territory restrictions or Strike’s second paywall of $4.99 a month. What will you be catching up on now that Anime Strike is no more?
