Crunchyroll, the anime specialist, and Prime Video have entered into a global agreement to distribute the Crunchyroll subscription service on Prime Video. Crunchyroll is now available via Prime Video Channels immediately in the US – with the UK, Canada, Sweden launching later this week and additional territories to follow throughout 2024.

Prime members can now select from two Crunchyroll memberships: Fan or Mega Fan, both of which allow customers to stream the entire Crunchyroll library ad-free, while enjoying new episodes shortly after release in Japan. Pricing starts at $7.99 per month in the US. At launch, Mega Fan subscribers can also download titles for offline viewing, with additional non-video benefits to be added shortly. Crunchyroll subscribers can enjoy a robust library of anime, with 24,000 hours, 46,000 episodes, and more than 1,300 series and films.

“Crunchyroll offers an anime adventure for every kind of fan. From sports to romantic comedy, horror and action to slice-of-life, even the anime-curious can get immersed in our library,” said Terry Li, EVP of emerging business, Crunchyroll. “We look forward to welcoming new fans into the anime community through our launch on Prime Video Channels.”

“Prime Video already offers an unparalleled collection of premium entertainment, including third-party channels so customers can enjoy their favorite movies and series directly on Prime Video,” added Matt Cohen, head of content acquisition and partnerships, Prime Video Channels. “With the addition of Crunchyroll to Prime Video Channels, Prime members can now easily stream anime content on Prime Video.”

New Crunchyroll subscribers can access the autumn anime season with more than 50 new titles, including the fantasy adventure series Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End (pictured), the long-running swashbuckling epic One Piece, and the action-packed hit Jujutsu Kaisen.
