Twitch just revealed an unusual reward for Prime membership: non-gaming related loot.
Amazon, Twitch’s owners, and Crunchyroll have teamed up so that you can now get 30 days ad-free access on Crunchyroll via a unique code. You don’t need a credit card, and the deal is twice as long as Crunchyroll’s default taster option.
Always on anime is a thing on Twitch, and this partnership suggests the marketing minds at the two companies think the overlap in audiences is pretty substantial. Netflix has been doubling down on their anime investments and closer bonds between Amazon, Twitch and Crunchyroll seem to make perfect sense.
The loot deal means Twitch Prime members in the UK now have access to One Punch Man season 2, a show that’s especially hard to get access to thanks to a Hulu exclusive in the States.
Other popular titles at Crunchyroll include Dragon Ball Super, The Ancient Magnus’ Bride, Food Wars, Boruto and Naruto both, Black Clover, Gintama and a personal favourite of this blogger; Recovery of an MMO Junkie.
Crunchyroll has over 1,000 series available to stream which is why some 2 million paying subscribers use the platform, many paying nearly $8 a month.
