There are currently three major anime publishers working in Australia – the mainstream Madman Entertainment, the niche Siren Visual and the “mixed bag” Hanabee Entertainment. While Madman and Hanabee launched their own video on demand (VOD) services earlier this year, Siren Visual had no similar service for fans of their licenses the ability to try out what they have to offer.
Following a confirmation on the Siren Visual Facebook page late last week, Madman sent out an email earlier today welcoming Siren Visual to their AnimeLab platform. Starting from today, The Devil is a Part-Timer is now available to view both subbed and dubbed via the service for all Aussies and New Zealanders to enjoy. The range of Siren titles available via AnimeLab is likely to expand in the coming months.
An unspecified representative from Siren Visual has stated:
We’re excited to finally have an Australian-based platform dedicated to online delivery of anime. AnimeLab has opened doors for Siren in terms of exposure to a new audience and is set to be the one-stop anime hub for VOD streaming and simulcast of exciting new anime programming in Australia.
The dedicated team behind the site are ensuring the best possible service is provided and that the programming provided is top-notch, as well as a solid marketing drive that is currently unmatched in this territory. As the extensive library on the site grows, the benefits to Australian fans are immense – the only setback will be time: watching everything will be virtually impossible!
