today streaming sites, are really purchasing any from anyone,
their next project, a couple week ago Netflix have already purchase
trigger next series, hulu air exclusively in spring kabaneri, but netflix is showing
the next installment of the magi series. Sinbad.

funimation and crunchyroll have always dominated for this media,
but with demand high will it expand to other site, i mean viewster
is showing classic, and dasuke some new, but oldies too.
so are streaming sites, pushing it? to give you the newer and fresher anime?
the competition is good, but whos gonna stay on top?

So what yer demand from the streaming sites?
Binge'em or see one episode by week?
comment below.
And as always.
thank for been awesome.

- Crunchyroll will buy Funimation, absorb their content & production abilities, and shut down Funimation's terrible website.

- Hulu will either get another round of funding, get bought by one of its media partners, or go bankrupt.

- Daisuki is already dead.

- Viewster is a mobile home park.

Amazon has exclusive streaming rights to Kabaneri, not Hulu.

Your post seemed surprisingly poetic, what with the line breaks, internal rhyme, and almost lyrical phrasing.

Anyway, I don't know myself, but it will be fascinating to see. I do think going for newer titles is going to be more important for most streaming sites, as watching currently airing shows seems to be the current zeitgeist of the community.

I kind of like the idea of a competitive "war" for new shows each season. It makes each acquisition seem more interesting than it would be otherwise. I think I might like to see the competition continue rather than having one company emerge on top, but maybe that would be more convenient? I really don't know.

Well your topic title was a bit misleading. But I'm not sure anime is going to be the new warfare in entertainment. Because anime itself is not even mainstream in the US. Not that other Asian entertainment like K-dramas are less mainstream. But Korean TV dramas has a bigger audiences then anime overall. So yeah, I'm not even sure if anime is going to become like you said a new warfare in entertainment.

It depends, but I think it shouldn't be. Games over the last couple years have become a major mainstream warfare, but in the process the whole thing is overbloated and not as friendly. Anime still has a certain level of niche to it, and you can still find a lot of cool people and hear their thoughts on anime, manga, and the sort.
