PSA: Anime Strike no longer -- All Anime Strike shows now free with Amazon Prime subscription

+34 Deal Score
8,900 Views
Did a search for anime strike but didn't see this yet. Originally the Anime Strike channel was a $5 additional subscription on top of Amazon Prime which I've been subscribing to, but I got a a surprise cancellation email today saying that all anime shows are going to be included for free with all Amazon Prime subs now. Email below:

We have great news: you no longer need a subscription to watch the shows and movies on Anime Strike. All titles are now included with your Prime membership at no additional charge, effective today, in addition to thousands more movies and TV shows. There is no action needed on your part—we've automatically canceled your recurring subscription for you.

If you have service remaining from your last billing cycle, a pro-rated refund will be issued to the payment method you used. Refunds are usually processed within two to three business days.

We hope you enjoyed watching Anime Strike on Amazon Channels, the Prime benefit that lets you choose your channels. Don't forget, there are 100+ channels to try, you only pay for the channels you want, and you can cancel anytime.

Thank you for being a Prime member.


I never did watch that many shows on anime strike during my subscription period in the last several months and it was kind of going to waste, so this is great news for me.

Looks like Amazon was losing money on the channel anyway so they wanted to use the contracts to bolster their prime offering.

Good deal if you're into it.

I just took a look. Almost everything is in English. Thank you about that, but I cannot enjoy anime with English voice cast. It is really a pity.

I haven't checked many of the titles, but at least for the ones that were originally offered on the Anime Strike channel (and were simulcast titles), they are in Japanese with Eng Subs. I think it's also worth noting that some titles I've searched on are not free for Prime subs as well (for example Mushi-shi S1, Paprika, I'm sure many others). I don't remember if these were available with Anime Strike or just plain available on Amazon Video.

I also don't know what this means for simulcast titles going forward if Amazon is even working towards that anymore... But at least the current titles offered on Strike are free now.

I signed up for the free trial in December. Watched "Made in Abyss" that was only available on this channel. Blown away by the quality of it - highly recommend.
