Amazon Streaming New Series to U.K.

Amazon Prime is streaming the following series to the UK: Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul, Re:CREATORS and Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend Flat.
Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul (available on Amazon here) is the sequel to 2014's Rage of Bahamut Genesis. The story takes place 10 years after the world escaped destruction due to the revival of Bahamut. Humans at the royal capital gather wealth, the demons are enslaved to assist with the capital's revival, and the gods lose their power due to a decrease in religious piety. The world is thrown off balance as humans, gods, and demons hold their own ideas of justice.
Keiichi Satou (Tiger & Bunny, Asura) is returning from the first season to direct the series, and Shizuka Ōishi (Futarikko, Ōdorī live-action series) is writing the scripts. Naoyuki Onda (Gantz, Hiiro no Kakera) is returning to design the characters, and Goki Nakamura (Berserk: The Golden Age Arc I - The Egg of the King, Baku Tech! Bakugan) will again serve as art director. Yoshihiro Ike (Tiger & Bunny, Kuroko's Basketball) is returning to compose the music. MAPPA (Garo: Crimson Moon, Snow White with the Red Hair) is again producing the animation.
Re:CREATORS (available on Amazon here). The show's site describes the story:

Humans have created many stories. Joy, sadness, anger, deep emotion. Stories shake our emotions, and fascinate us. However, these are only the thoughts of bystanders. But what if the characters in the story have "intentions"? To them, are we god-like existences for bringing their story into the world? Our world is changed. Mete out punishment upon the realm of the gods. In Re:CREATORS, everyone becomes a Creator.
Black Lagoon manga creator Rei Hiroe is credited with providing the original concept and original character designs for the anime. Ei Aoki (Aldnoah.Zero, Fate/Zero) is directing the anime at his studio TROYCA.
Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend Flat, is available on Amazon here. The series revolves around Tomoya Aki, an otaku who is working part-time to earn enough money to buy anime on Blu-ray Disc, who meets a beautiful girl on his way home during spring vacation. He eventually models the heroine of his own dōjin game after her. However, he finds out a month later that the girl is in fact his classmate, and he doesn't know her name.
The first season of the anime premiered in January 2015 in Japan on Fuji TV's Noitamina programming block.
