The agreement started in Spring 2016 with Kabaneri.

Anybody know when this agreement ends? Maybe I misread or might be mistaken but I thought it was a 2 year agreement with Winter 2018 being the last Noitamina show.

Honestly I'm just sick and tired of not being able to watch Noitamina shows. I have not watched a single Noitamina show since Spring 2016, I have not gone to dark side in that timeline (in fact I have not done so in almost 4 years) and no I don't want or need a Prime to get Strike (even though I have money).

There has been no indication that it's expiring anytime soon. Seeing that Noitamina has helped made Amazon's video service relevant that I see no reason for them not to extend their deal if it is expiring.

There was some thought it might be only a 2 year agreement, as that appeared to be the term of the agreement they had with Funimation years ago, but I've seen no actual confirmation. For all we know, it could have been a two year agreement that Amazon had already renewed, or it could be a 5 year agreement or even longer. The original press release just said "going forward".

At least 2 years. I actually like AS, so I'm kind of glad about it. Amazon also have the Animeism block, which is also pretty great. You can watch Noitamina stuff, stop pretending like someone is stopping you, if you don't like AS you can torrent or something and if you don't want to do that, then no one really cares at the end of the day that you're missing out on Noitamina shows, your loss.

Noitamina / Animeism 101

Details about the contract / length between Noitamina ( FUJI T.V.) / Amazon are really not revealed . For years it was on Funimation / then CR looked liked they were going to have it for awhile but not

One reason both blocks are popular they both run 1 hour blocks pf anime which was even more successful when Animeism (MBS) moved to FRI NIGHT to avoid beng against Noitamina ( FUJI T.V.) THUR

It wasnt that long ago when Thursday was the hot night of the week having more anime and hits than Friday nite .

Just a 101 below for those new or dont understand the anime progranning blocks



Noitamina ( FUJI T.V.) Thursdays

Noitamina (stylized noitaminA, "Animation" written backwards) is a Fuji Television programming block, devoted to anime, originally broadcast every Thursday late night from 24:45 to 25:15 (or 00:45 to 1:15 Friday morning). It was launched with the intention of expanding the target audience beyond the typical young male demographic.

The timeslot was expanded from half an hour to a full hour in 2010, and airs Thursday nights from 24:45 to 25:45 (or 00:45 to 1:45 Friday morning) but returned to half an hour timeslot in 2015 due to 5 noitaminA-produced films to be shown in Japanese theaters in the same year.So far the only non-anime series aired on noitaminA was the live-action adaptation of Moyasimon: Tales of Agriculture in 2010.

On April 15, 2010, Fuji TV and Funimation announced an agreement that allows Funimation to simulcast series from the noitaminA block in North America within an hour of their airing in Japan.

More recently, it signed a deal with Amazon to exclusively stream and simulcast series from the noitaminA block through their Prime Instant Video service on March 17, 2016, starting with Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress.

Animeism (MBS) FRI

Animeism is a late-night Japanese programming block established on April, 2012. It is devoted to anime and broadcast each Thursday night (Friday morning) on MBS, in a fashion similar to Fuji TV's Noitamina that also airs on Thursdays. Just like Noitamina when the block was created, it airs two series back to back. From April 2015 onwards, the block was moved to Friday nights to avoid direct competition with Noitamina and the Thursday night anime block on TBS. Also like Noitamina, it signed a deal with Amazon to stream exclusively on their Prime video service on June 29, 2017 starting with Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul and Altair: A Record of Battles.
