ANiUTa to let otaku around the world stream their favorite music


Listen to your favorite Japanese Jams!

Trying to stream Japanese music legally is not easiest thing for those who love those eastern jams that are outside Japan. The Japanese music industry is notorious for not making it easy to stream their music but it seems that a miracle has happened with this new announcement. This March 24, 2017, all major Japanese music labels have partnered up to launch ANiUTa, a monthly Japanese music streaming subscription service that will feature music from anime, video games, vocaloid, and tokusatsu(!).

ANiUTa, a portmanteau of 'Ani' from Anime and 'Uta' meaning song in Japanese, will have over 50,000 songs will be available on the service (20,000 of which will be exclusive to the service) which will feature the latest releases and back catalogue. ANiUTa will also provide other stuff in the form of special content from TV shows and special collaboration with voice actors. Extra services include access to priority concert ticket sales and anime merchandise for sale.

ANiUTa will cost ¥600 (about $5) per month and the Japanese version of the app for the service is now available on iOS and Android. The worldwide version not yet available but is projected to launch before the end of 2017.

So what do you think, fellow Japanophile? Would you sign up for $5 a month to be able to stream your favorite Japanese music?

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
