So we’re about to jump head first into the Summer 2017 anime season, and there’s some shows I’m definitely excited about–the next season of New Game and the second half of My Hero Academia are just 2 examples.
What do you think about shows that really crank up the fan service? Is it funny? Annoying? Just something you need to expect as an anime fan?
But our resident redneck weeaboo Randy wanted to take a good hard (lol) look at the lewdest shows of the Spring 2017 season. There was an obvious choice for what would “likely” be the #1 choice, but then a random other CrunchyRoll show came out of nowhere and shocked him with its sheer WTF-ness. Watch the video below to hear him rant.
We’re back and our local redneck (we happen to be in the Nashville, Tennessee area) Randy has a few things to say about Amazon’s Anime Strike. Anime Strike is a $5 a month streaming service for anime, much like CrunchyRoll and Funimation. But the catch with their service is that you must also be an Amazon Prime member to be able to subscribe, as a price of $99 a year.
So with the barrier to entry at around $104, it’s controversial. Even more controversial is the fact that Amazon has been going around buying up highly anticipated shows as exclusives. Just yesterday they announced obtaining the rights to the show “Welcome To The Ballroom”, much to the chagrin of anime fans.
With their newness in the anime game, it feels like their taking their large war chest of money and picking up shows knowing people will have no choice but to subscribe to both Prime and Strike to watch it.
All these points are rubbing people the wrong way. But we’ll let our country friend Randy explain it all in a little more (humorous) detail:
