Retro Crush Recently Announced Upgradation To A Streaming Service

The era of the TV is nearing its end as a lot of content is available on Streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Funimation, etc.

Many of these sites also stream anime; however, they tend to stick to adding new anime to their showcase and not old-time favourites such as Fist of the North Star, Lum, etc. Seeing this opportunity, a new streaming service is going live in 2020 that focuses entirely on anime classics.

RetroCrush, formerly a Youtube channel that uploads video clips of classic anime, tweeted out the announcement that they are officially upgrading to a streaming service in 2020!

The tweet shows off images from a variety of anime that will be included in the streaming service, including Street Fighter 2, Card Captor Sakura, Dragon Ball, etc. No details regarding their pricing or a list of their library content have yet been announced. However, it is definitely something that has caught the attention of anime viewers.

RetroCrush is going to have a hard time competing against big companies such as Netflix and Hulu. Although, with their new approach to anime and a bit of luck, they just might make it.
