If you aren’t getting your share of streaming video content on your PS3 through Netflix, Hulu Plus, CinemaNow, YouTube, Crackle, etc, then maybe some news out of Comic-Con will be music to your ears. That is, assuming you’re a fan of anime. Two of the biggest anime streaming services are making their way to the PlayStation Network.
First up is Neon Alley, a brand new but already-noteworthy service powered by Viz Media. It’s a 24-hour anime channel that gives users access to unlimited hours of crazy exaggerated antics and zany battles between good and evil for a monthly fee of $6.99, about on par with Netflix but only for anime content. Yeah, anime fans are that devoted.
Naruto Shippuden, Inuyasha: The Final Act, and Death Note, as well as new titles such as Tiger & Bunny, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc, Zetman, and Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan are among the shows available on Neon Alley, which will launch in the fall. Also announced was Crunchyroll, which also offers streaming anime content on two tiered levels of either $6.95 per month or $11.95 per month. PS3 users are eligible for a 30-day trial.
