All I want from Santa for Christmas is Nanoha StrikerS to be available via Amazon Prime Video in the US.


If you want to trade any unwanted cold/snow you may have you can come to my house and watch it now. I'm in the middle of a 2+ week long heatwave. I'll even buy you a box of cookies if you can figure out how to get prime video to work on my 4k tv.

Australia has had these shows available pretty much since this thread was opened I didn't know that they weren't available in the US.
I thought the Prime Video service (which is amazon prime video but with out the amazon store part) was based on the US amazon prime video service and just had titles the US had but if not for here where just region blocked. So I never looked at the anime section with any real detail. But yes they do play.

Also if I go to the amazon links you posted I can see the episode and tells me to get "anime strike" now for $4.99 a month USD. Which seems to have launched in the past hour or so.

Maybe they are available if you buy the service now? I do like how Amazon say the US doesn't really have any anime streaming sites lol. They have more then any country lol. TAN/CR/Funimation/daisuki/netflix/Hulu(yahooview)/neon ally did I forget any? Yes they are not catered for Amazon VP lol.

At least the US gets Amazon Prime Video. In Canada they sold the rights to two companies, one of which has already gone belly up and neither of which seem interested in streaming anime. Unused streaming rights are the WORST!


Amazon Prime Video is now available in Canada, and Nanoha is available on it. I just started watching it yesterday.

Not on Prime for the US... Apparently Nanoha and the Noitamina blocs are going to be held captive under an additional service fee requiring another subscription to Amazon Video paywall called "Anime Strike" for 5 bucks a month... Not real happy about this development.

WTF, they should advertise these things... Thanks!

Do they have any of the simulcasts as well for Canada? Edit: answering my own question, yes I'm watching Scum's Wish right now. Cool.

Nanoha plays well too. Canada works because we're part of the Commonwealth? LOL, I don't know but I shouldn't complain. It is odd and rare that we get some shows that the US doesn't get.

Damn, and I was really wanting to watch the series too, as I was able to see the first Nanoha movie awhile back and enjoyed it.

Guess I'll have to cross my fingers that it eventually gets released elsewhere.

Interesting that the first two Nanoha series have subs but StrikerS does not.

Ok Amazon now that you have Nanoha streaming can you please release it all on bluray? I would love to have all of them in my collection.

Onihei there too, Vivid Strike as well. Kabaneri of course. All these shows I couldn't watch properly until now. Very, very cool.

Too bad the Amazon button on my TV does nothing. Must need a firmware update or something.

*grumbles*

And Amazon hides it behind Prime ... plus the Anime Strike pay wall. No, thank you. I do not need to pay for yet another service.

Despite that, it is good to see Nanoha in legal circulation after all these years.

Getting something behind a pay wall is a business practice that I'm just sick and tired of seeing. It's something that the video game industry is just completely plagued with at the moment (looking at you EA and Activision).

... yeah, I ended up changing my mind this morning for this reason. Looks like I belong to Anime Strike now. *sighs*

For anyone wondering why my original post shows as reported, that was by me. Given the change in the situation since I started this thread, I requested "UK" be dropped from the title, both since it has been confirmed the series are more widely available, and the discussion has changed.

Unless the situation changes, I'll probably only subscribe for about a month or two per year.

I notice in addition to the Nanoha series, at least here in the US, they have When They Cry Kai and When They Cry Rei, neither of which appear to be available on any other legal service. (Hulu and TAN only have the first series). I suspect they may also have those for Canada, at least.

For now I'm in a free month of Amazon Prime (we are late to the Amazon Prime Video party so they don't have Anime Strike here yet) so I have only paid $1 for it so far... I'm not sure if I'm allowed to pay for it monthly or I'll be charged a year's worth after the free month is up. I think it'll be a lump sum subscription for the year, that seems to be how it is worded but I guess I'll know if I don't cancel it before then.

In Canada at least, When They Cry (or Higurashi) does not show any results in Amazon Prime. I'm pretty sure that Sentai said they have Kai and Rei too so I expect to see them on ANO sometime... which I also subscribe to. This is getting expensive! I currently subscribe to:

Crunchyroll
Netflix
Anime Network Online
Daisuki
Amazon Prime

I'll probably cancel Daisuki after the last two episodes of Long Riders air early next month as the reduction (not elimination) of ads in their Premium service is not really worth it and the only other show I watch there is Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans.

Netflix is mostly used by the family for things other than anime so I'll keep it regardless.

I keep ANO as long as they have simulcasts though they actually have some good shows in their catalog too. Urara and BanG Dream! being exclusives this winter means I'm keeping that subscription for another cour at least.

Being legal is expensive! It kind of sucks but I'm back on the wagon again (no more darkside) so I'm actually quite happy that we finally got Amazon Prime Video here in Canada. Now the only thing I'm really missing is orphaned shows like Macross for which I'm importing the Blurays from Japan (which have English subs even though I don't really need them).

Welcome to the light side! Which is the expensive side... but I feel better knowing I'm supporting the shows so it's OK.

Thank you, but, in my defense, I have always belonged to the Light Side (... in the age of streaming video, at least), but now I have more Light Side from which to choose. I pay for my anime. If it is not accessible to me, it does not get watched, plain and simple.

They are calling it Anime Network Online (ANO) instead of The Anime Network (TAN) now? Hmm. Might explain where a couple of shows have gone, but I cancelled that subscription long ago. Then again, back then, they never seemed to have any exclusives. If that has changed, I might have to keep one eye open.

I hang on to Daisuki for Love Live! Sunshine!! and my Gundam fix. The fact that they now have that Android app is very helpful, if also rather unwieldy.

Good for you! I fell off the wagon there for a few years but I'm back to light side only. I was adamantly light side for a while but was tempted by a number of orphaned shows I wanted to watch recently before I got the Blurays. Years ago I would import the Blurays blind rather than go darkside but that got expensive and risky.

I watched LoveLive Sunshine! on Line Live and Funimation as I used to have a subscription there before they got married to Crunchyroll. But I also import the Blurays from Japan (which also have English subtitles) so I watch those instead for my rewatches.

Yes, Anime Network Online is aka The Animation Network so ANO or TAN, take your pick. They had some exclusives years ago, then stopped, then had them last year, then stopped again, had them last cour and this cour too. I subscribe monthly so when there are no simulcasts or catalogs I want to watch there I just cancel it.

So as long as there are no more Viz/Hulu exclusives I should be OK. That is unless I'm behind the times there too. Last time I tried, Hulu still doesn't work here for those shows unless I use a VPN.

My device is iOS and all the services work well there, either on apps or with HTML5 video in the browser. My laptop is actually choppier for video these days even though it has multiple cores, etc. Just too much going on with the OS and all the anti-virus/malware software needed these days. To get back on topic (sorry), the Amazon Prime Video app works great.
