Since Amazon stole half of this seasons worth of shows the price should be cut in half.


Any insight on this topic?

1) Amazon didn't "steal" anything. They are expanding their business to include a collection of simulcast anime and were able to negotiate to achieve that.

2) It does appear that what was Amazon's win, was Crunchyroll's loss, but it is nothing like "half of this season's anime" (emphasis mine).

I've closed this thread because there are already a couple of threads dealing with Amazon's activity this season, and implications of that for the industry, or future distribution outside of Japan. Please feel free to read and join these discussions:
