After announcing it’s paid service to users last year at Anime Expo, streaming service Daisuki will cease to exist on Halloween of this year. Daisuki started in April of 2013 as a free streaming service offered by Anime Consortium Japan Incorporated in an effort to spread the medium to more audiences overseas. Unfortunately, services such as Crunchyroll, Funimation Now, and Amazon’s new Anime Strike that can boast exclusive series and content as well as compatibility with numerous streaming devices have made it difficult to compete in the market.
It seems Daisuki has already been quietly shutting down their service since July 1st according to their official announcement and that Premium Memberships’ last billing cycle was on June 30th. Premium access will continue to be available to users for free until October 31st. All user data will be eliminated upon shut down as well, so no need to fear free and premium users!
