Verizon’s streaming service go90 are making some pretty big splashes lately, following news that both the “Anohana” and “God Eater” anime English dubs will be held exclusive to the platform. The announcement was shared during Aniplex of America’s panel at Anime Weekend Atlanta, where they also made a note of a handful of other series making their way to the free-to-stream platform. Other titles expected to be released include “Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood,” “Puella Magi Madoka Magica,” “Sword Art Online,” “Gurren Lagann” and “Fate/Zero.”
For those of you groaning at the thought of needing to fork out the money for yet another streaming service, there’s a silver lining; Aniplex of America has made it clear that go90 does not require fees to stream content, with the platform aimed at streaming on a tight budget. If you’re yet to check out “Anohana,” I can’t help but recommend it a million times over. If you’re anything like me, the only cost you’ll find involved here is some tissues for some real tear-jerking moments.
It’ll be interesting to see what go90 can bring to the table in the coming years. Aniplex of America President Shu Nishimoto had the following words to share in regards to the partnership:
“We are very excited to be partnering with go90 – part of Verizon’s digital media network – to provide more opportunities for anime fans to stream their favorite shows. Since anime is a relatively new venture for go90, we hope this partnership will be a perfect opportunity for more people to become anime fans.”
