    Why is that, I wonder?

      And it looks like Onihei is indeed with Amazon and just like last season, the US seems to not be included in the streaming area. I suspect the same will happen to Scum's Wish when it starts in a couple days.

          I guess there might be some hope for Scum's Wish after all? A page for Onihei was just added along with pages for previous season's The Great Passage, Vivid Strike! and Shin-chan Spinoff. Unfortunately, none of the episodes are available to watch. As a reminder, a page for the new season of Chi, also from the previous season, was added a few days ago. It too, still isn't available to watch just yet.

              More stuff getting added, unfortunately, none of it is currently available to watch.

              Scum's Wish [Trailer]
              17-year-old Awaya Mugi and Yasuraoka Hanabi appear to be the ideal couple. They are both pretty popular, and they seem to suit each other well. However, outsiders don't know of the secret they share. Both Mugi and Hanabi have hopeless crushes on someone else, and they are only dating each other to soothe their loneliness. Mugi is in love with Minagawa Akane, a young teacher who used to be his home tutor. Hanabi is also in love with a teacher, a young man who has been a family friend since she was little. In each other, they find a place where they can grieve for the ones they cannot have, and they share a loneliness-driven physical intimacy. Will things stay like this for them forever?


              Once StrikerS actually goes up, I believe that will be the first time it's been legally available in the US.

              Magical Girl Lyrical NANOHA A's
              Magical Girl Lyrical NANOHA StrikerS

              Edit: And it just gets worse with Amazon. Now besides needing Prime sub in order to watch these anime titles, you also have to pay an extra $5 for an Anime Strike sub.


              Amazon is rolling out its first branded on-demand subscription service for Amazon Channels: Anime Strike, offering more than 1,000 series episodes and movies ranging from classic titles to current shows broadcast on Japanese TV.

              The Anime Strike channel is available to U.S. Amazon Prime members for $4.99 per month after a seven-day free trial, the newest addition to the lineup of around 100 services now available in Amazon Channels.

              The ad-free programming on Amazon’s Anime Strike includes recent series like “The Great Passage”; same-day-as-broadcast series from Japan including “Scum’s Wish” (“Kuzu no Honkai”) and “Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga” (“Ao No Exorcist: Kyoto Fujouou-hen”); and older anime hits like “Paprika,” “Tokyo Godfathers” and “Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS.” Content on the channel will be refreshed weekly, Amazon says.

              “With anime in particular, there’s a strong, passionate audience that is underserved by traditional pay TV,” said Michael Paull, Amazon’s VP of digital video and head of Amazon Channels worldwide.

              Amazon has struck exclusive U.S. streaming deals for several series on Anime Strike, including “Scum’s Wish,” “Onihei,” “The Great Passage,” “Vivid Strike!,” “Crayon-Shin Chan Gaiden: Alien vs. Shinnosuke,” and “Chi’s Sweet Adventure.”

              In the coming months, Amazon plans to launch additional branded subscription VOD channels, according to Paull, but he wouldn’t say what genres those will cover. For now, Anime Strike is available only to Prime members in the U.S.

              Other U.S. online distributors of anime programming include Funimation and Crunchyroll, which is owned by AT&T-Chernin Group’s Otter Media.
              Amazon’s Anime Strike is being programmed with a mix of adult-themed, romance and action titles designed to appeal across all age ranges, said Paull. “We tend to focus on our customers and their needs, and our big difference is that we’re using the data we have as Amazon to know the type of programming that would excite our audience,” he said.

              Amazon Channels, launched late 2015 as the Streaming Partners program, offers 100 add-on video subscription services for Prime members. Channels include HBO and Cinemax, Showtime, Starz, Acorn TV, NBCUniversal’s Seeso, Machinima, Warner Bros.’ DramaFever, Tribeca Shortlist, Cinedigm’s Dove Channel, Comedy Central’s Stand-Up Plus, PBS Kids, Fandor and Outside TV.

                Barring any late additions, I think this pretty much wraps up the streaming announcement phase.
