Still a bit bummed Hisone to Masotan seems to be a Netflix exclusive, and it doesn’t look like they plan on Simulcasting it like they did with Violet Evergarden outside the US =n=

Hopefully the wait for it’s availabiliy Netflix will likely initiate will only delay it’s success :’D Cause at the moment it seems like it’s gonna get hardcore overlooked TTwTT

Ok, so Tada-kun wa Koi wo Shinai is available on Animax on Demand for Astro Go subscribers in Malaysia . not simulcast but streaming 2 weeks late(almost exactly 2 weeks after it airs in Japan) .

note that this is different from Animax Asia which is a TV channel, while Animax on Demand is a streaming service, they are mutually exclusive as in 1 does not appear in the other(the broadcast should be available on demand sometime after the season ends)

(I'm not even sure If you can open this link)

For anyone worrying about when Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku will be available on Amazon Prime overseas, it is currently available in the UK. For the US, we'll just have to wait and see, since Amazon never likes to annouce US release dates for the anime they're streaming.

UPDATE: It's on the US Amazon Prime!

Apr 14, 4:43 PM by AnimeNerd25

@Stian838 Thanks for the direct link to the anime. It is on my region, So I can watch it.

@nits_ The title is available on my region. Here in Mexico Prime video hasnt too many animes, but this one is.

By the way, at this point you can say... So you really needed help? Yes. Scince last week I was searching the anime on the catalogue with no succsess, so thats why I ask here.

Added Austria to the list of regions. German-speaking Europe is reserved for sites that either list it that way or have the DACH+ countries listed.

If I had to take a guess, I'd say that it'll probably not be picked up by anyone.

Excluding Japan, Amazon titles are usually available in North America and the UK + Ireland. This title in particular is probably not available in your region and sites generally don't report where the Amazon titles are going to be simulcast. I usually just base it on people in this thread and various sources. If you are familiar with any sites that simulcast in Latin America, I could try and add them to the list.


no that's not it.... except for the fist of blue sky, all 3 other are available in India n i think are available wherever Amazon Prime is available.

It should be on Primevideo for most of the world - https://www.primevideo.com/detail/0SKR8EVD0XYSEY6Z3O86ICJPEM

IIRC Amazon licenses Animeism and noitaminA shows worldwide, or at least for most of the world. Not really sure though. Norway gets the shows at least.

Edit: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2017-06-29/amazon-prime-to-stream-animeism-shows-including-altair-worldwide/.118205

Dragon Pilot - Hisone and Masotan shows up on Netflix Norway as well, this is a worldwide release/license most likely, like with Aggressive Retsuko and Lost Song (both have placeholder pages here).
