Yep I agree, it's either crunchy or Funi.

I don't mind that they got exclusives. But what I do care about is the fact that they aren't giving us the same treatment as Crunchyroll is. If Amazon made Anime Strike a stand-alone service where a Prime subscription is not required, and if Netflix did simulcasts, then I wouldn't mind. It's not so much a matter of having extra subscriptions as it is having to put up with their BS and blatant misunderstanding of the community. If just prioritized the experience then all is well seeing that with their deep pockets, that's quite a lot of cash going into the anime industry that needs all the money they can get.

There's no Amazon strike in the UK so there's no irritation preventing me from watching stuff there at present. It is possible that sometime in the future Amazon strike will be expanded internationally but I won't be getting that.

It's just the way it is right now. I would prefer more open access but it's really heading the other direction. Fortunately when the industry fails to give me a reasonable option to purchase shows legally, I can always take to the high seas and plunder.

I have Netflix, so I'm perfectly fine with them having anime exclusives. Plus, they help fund the animes that they get, so it's good for the anime industry.

As for Amazon, I don't like it. They don't fund anything, and they force you to pay for 2 subscriptions which is ridiculous.
