dAnime Store is a streaming service that offers unlimited access to its lineup of anime for only 440 yen per month (tax included), and has recently gained a lot of popularity since it became available on PS4®.
Why are so many people wondering if they can use streaming services on PS4? It is because PS4® is a gaming console, but it is also a hardware device that focuses on video quality, allowing you to enjoy games and movies in a delicate image quality.
In this article, we will explain in detail how to watch d-Anime Store on PS4 and if it is also available on PS5 and Switch.
According to the information on the official d-Anime Store website, the only game console that can use the d-Anime Store right now is the PlayStation 4 (PS4). Unfortunately, there is no way to use the d-Anime Store app on PS5 or Nintendo Switch at this time.

The dAnime Store is not available on P3, PS5, or Switch.
dAnime Store currently supports only PS4 among game consoles, so it is not available on PS3 or PS5. In addition, Nintendo Switch and Xbox are not supported.
As for PS3, it is unlikely that it will be supported by d-Anime Store in the future, since the number of users is currently decreasing.
The penetration rate of PS5 is still low, but there is a possibility that d-Anime Store will be supported in the future, and this may also depend on the future penetration rate of PS5.
