Hello! I am Kitahata, the editor-in-chief at MANGA.TOKYO. I live in Japan and turn press releases from Japanese companies into articles that are easy for those outside of Japan to understand. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
Wakanim is one of Europe’s officially licensed anime streaming services that currently distributes anime in multiple countries. It is in partnership with Aniplex Inc, part of the Sony Music Entertainment Japan Group.
Anime fans from northern Europe can rejoice the service will expand to Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, Norway, and Finland from 1 July 2017! Some of the best anime from Japan will be available in multiple languages via different applications that include PC, Android, IOS, Chromecast, Xbox One® and soon Playstation®4.
They have also announced their very first simulcast! The upcoming anime Katsugeki Touken Ranbu will be available with subtitles just one hour after it airs in Japan! In order to celebrate this great news, cast members Ryohei Kimura (Izuminokami Kanesada) and Kento Hama (Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki) gave this special greeting especially for Wakanim Nordic.
Although the free membership allows access to all the newest episodes, VIP membership is available for just €5 a month! They will also offer the ability to purchase single episodes, so be sure to check the official website for more details.
