if you goes to tv rangkings thread, you will know streaming is still has niche market that mostly used by otaku... it's called torne rangkings or somethings...

Because they can watch it on TV, they just record it and watch, no need to pay for streaming.
This looks better since they're streaming exclusive series I think, too many streaming sites is bad thou.

I mentioned on ANN that they needed to go this route for anime, but the second thing they need to do is open it up to US and Chinese audiences.

Ah... er... I think this is just something everyone else avoided simply due to how stupid it is... Kids prefer bigger screens, they usually don't start liking smaller screens randomly over the years. I personally started on a phone, trying to hide it, so it doesn't bother me.

I'm probably looking into it a bit much though; whoever is making this probably had statistics on how much people watch on their phones.
