Daisuki launches this month, a coalition of 6 Anime houses in Japan trying another way of making their product available around the world. Some of the shows they own are not available through existing streaming services, but many of them are, scattered across multiple providers. Part of the logic of launching this new service is they hope to gain subscribers because they will be a one-stop shop for their titles, so you don’t have to go different places to watch the different shows. At the same time, they have made it clear that they have no intention of pulling shows like Puella Magi Madoka Magica, One Piece, or Lupin the 3rd off of the various streaming services now carrying them. This already makes me appreciate their approach, and I look forward to checking them out once they launch. While I have not been able to find an exact launch date listed, sometime in late April is the announced target, so it shouldn’t be long now.
