It's exclusively on Amazon's Anime Strike channel in the US and HIDIVE everywhere else that is served by Sentai. Sentai has since turned to Amazon for their streaming needs as they can pay an awful lot to them, something that Crunchyroll unfortunately can't do.

So subscribe to Anime Strike... it's only 5 bucks a month FFS!

Amazon and Netflix probably don't pay more than CR or any other provider for licenses by the way. It's a competitive market.

You mean "It's only $15.99 per month!".
You have to have an active Amazon Prime membership, as Anime Strike is a "channel" add-on that you can get for your Amazon Prime membership.
This is either $99 per year (making it $160 per year with Anime Strike) or $15.99 per month (making it $191.88 per year with Anime Strike).

Crunchyroll Premium: $6.95 per month ($83.40 per year)
$60 per year (if bought annually).

Funimation: $5.99 per month ($71.88 per year)
$59.95 per year (if bought annually)

Either way, it is what it is.
If you want to watch it, then pay the $160 per year/$15.99 per month.

And with Amazon Prime you get free shipping on Amazon, you get Prime Video, Prime Music, Prime Reading, etc, etc. So, yeah, Anime Strike is 5 bucks a month.
