UK Legal Anime Streaming September 2017 Round-up

We are now approaching the Autumn 2017 season but there have been a couple changes throughout the past month, so here’s a quick round-up detailing the newest additions & expired titles!

So what is the purpose of this round-up you may ask? Simple, to let folks know what titles are now available to stream legally and what titles are no longer streaming. It’s important to help folks find the titles they want on the right services, especially given the UK had it rough for a long time until last year.

This list will be sorted by alphabetical order on the services.

Starting off the article is Amazon. While their respective pages have yet to appear, we should remind folks of the next two titles to take over the NoitaminA and Animeism programming blocks that are exclusive to the Prime service. MAPPA & Gantz creator’s Inuyashiki Last Hero will be the next title from the NoitaminA block (replacing DIVE!!) while the two parts of Yuki Yuna is a Hero Season 2 will be the next titles from the Animeism block (replacing Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul, while Altair: A Record of Battles will continue for its second cour).

New Additions (Autumn 2017 Simulcasts):

  • Inuyashiki Last Hero
  • Yuki Yuna Is a Hero: Washio Sumi Chapter (Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru: Washio Sumi no Shou) [Season 2 Part 1]
  • Yuki Yuna Is a Hero: Hero Chapter (Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru: Yuusha no Shou) [Season 2 Part 2]

Crunchyroll has been continuing their catalogue expansion thanks to their partnership with Funimation, where all of Funimation’s titles go on the service in subbed form (while the dubs stay on Funimation Now). The UK continues to get a good share of titles, and along the way a couple simulcasts also join.

More titles from the Funimation deal join the service as well as the start of a couple titles from the upcoming Autumn 2017 season. Not every Autumn title has their respective pages aren’t up, but we will list them below.

It’s worth noting that King’s Game and Love Live! Sunshine!! Season 2 were not listed for the UK’s simuldub section, so it’s suggested that the English dubs will not be made available for streaming on our end. However this can change later down the line.
