Are the exclusives on Anime Strike timed. Because they got 3 shows I looked forward to and the price for anime strike is steep. I was hoping crunchyroll will eventually be streaming them maybe after the seasons over.
Was really looking forward too is it wrong to pick up girls in a dungeon season 2, rage of bahamut season 2, busou shojou

Leave it to Amazon to ruin everything

The announcements have stated that for most of the Spring shows Amazon picked up, they are exclusive in the U.S. That means CR won't get them for US, at least not until the current licenses expire, which is unlikely to be any time soon (by which I mean years, not months).

There are two new shows on Anime Strike that we already know aren't exclusive to Amazon. They are Eromanga Sensei and Granblue Fantasy but those were never announced as exclusive (the rest were).

i'd argue that it's not that bad. people mistakenly compare the price of regular premium with anime strike, when they should really compare it with premium+ instead. regular premium doesn't get free shipping, like Amazon Prime.
1 year of premium+ costs about the same as 1 year of Amazon Prime (almost $100 a year), so you're effectively paying $5 more per month (compared to Premium+) to watch anime through Amazon. one good thing about Anime Strike though is the reliable servers. you're unlikely to suffer server outages (the infamous Saturday / Sunday server crash from CR). there are complaints of bad subs and limited catalog, but i expect that to change.
