New free North American streaming app: Retro Crush

Post by usamimi »

So Retro Crush just recently launched their Beta version of their app: http://retrocrush.tv It's mostly the same offerings they have on Asian Crush & Midnight Pulp, but in one convenient place. A word of warning, though--not every title they got streaming rights to is in HD/high quality, so some of these would look better on a phone screen rather than a large TV (like Bubblegum Crisis or Dagger of Kamui....both of which look to be very dated in quality). But for an official, free app mostly centered around older anime, it's not bad!

For folks who like to connect new services with old services, I've heard that Retro Crush was started by some of the same folks who ran ImaginAsian back in the mid-2000s. :)

runesaint: Hmmm. "Middle School", perhaps?

I've downloaded the app in a couple of my Firesticks and been poking around the catalog a bit - lots of interesting stuff there in the catalog. It's been some of my afternoon background noise when I don't have a lot of meetings for work. I feel like there is a lot of stuff there that is available streaming elsewhere, which isn't a bad thing but I feel like RetroCrush is basically a filter that a service like Crunchyroll should have.
