Amazon UK To Simulcast The Great Passage


It seems Amazon UK are continually looking to expand their streaming selection as following on from the addition’s of ViVid Strike! and Chi’s Sweet Adventure, both of which were added to the streaming service earlier this month, Amazon Instant Video are now offering another new simulcast in the form of The Great Passage, otherwise known in Japan as Fume Wo Amu.The Great Passage is an anime that highlights the tale of two businessmen trying to create a new dictionary and the struggles it can bring; but just like with ViVid Strike! and Chi’s Sweet Adventure new episodes will be added on a weekly basis – just like regular simulcast additions on popular streaming sites such as Crunchyroll and FUNimation UK.

Synopsis: “I’m just saying ‘read the air’ a little more.””You are using ‘air’ to mean situation.”Mitsuya Majime, an awkward salesman, and Masashi Nishioka, an easy-going dictionary editor meet by coincidence. Genbu Book’s veteran dictionary editor Araki is looking for a successor. He hears about Majime from Nishioka and decides to meet him.This is a story about the clumsy people who live for words.

It’s not the first time that Amazon Instant Video has offered anime content; as over the past few years the streaming service has offered English Dubbed versions of Pokemon and Digimon as well as the Marvel Anime variations of X-Men, Iron Man and Wolverine. In recent times however the streaming site has offered both Battery: The Animation and KABANERI of the Iron Fortress; both of which are currently available to stream on the site.

These anime simulcasts, and on-demand-content, are all included as part of the Amazon Prime subscription – which currently costs £79 per year.
