UK Legal Anime Streaming June & July 2018 Round-up

It’s been a while since we provided an round-up update on the anime available during each month. June was surprisingly a mostly quiet month so we decided to combine both of them together!

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 around 2016.

This round-up will focus on the months of June & July 2018. For our yearly round-ups on both Amazon Prime and Netflix you can view them here and here.

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


From Amazon we have the latest batch of simulcasts from the Summer 2018 anime season.
