The second exclusive Amazon title for this season is now available.
Amazon Prime has not been the friendliest of the lot when it comes to anime, and the same goes for Netflix. Unlike the United States however, the United Kingdom and select territories that have access to the Prime subscription model have less issues to deal with. In fact students can even acquire a special Student Prime subscription for half the asking price at £39 if they reach certain requirements.
But what about the anime? Well Amazon have an exclusive partnership deal with two programming blocks. Inuyashiki Last Hero is a title that a lot of people have been anticipating, having been written by Hiroya Oku (the creator of Gantz) and animated by studio MAPPA (Yuri!!! on Ice). As it’s part of the NoitaminA programming block, it will be streaming exclusively on the Amazon Prime service in Japanese audio with English subtitles during its simulcast run. New episodes will be added every Thursday.
Ichiro Inuyashiki was a boring office worker living a life shunned by his family and coworkers. One night, a UFO crashed into him, and his body was rebuilt into a powerful robot. A high school student named Hiro Shishigami was also involved in the same accident, and he begins to use his new powers to enable his darkest impulses. Is man’s true nature good or evil?
You can read the manga over on digital services like Crunchyroll or physically via Kodansha Comics.
