Perhaps in the end my best bet would be a small PC running one of the kodi distros.

Hi10P Anime hey...

Well you are in luck because of this Mini Review I did yesterday. It's the only chipset that hardware decodes Hi10P.
Bargain.of the year IMHO

WIP - Rockchip RK3399 devices

Every other device will have to CPU software decode it.

Fire TV's will not have the CPU ponies to do 1080p Anime.

With Rockchip LibreELEC Kodi Leia at the moment - 7.1 HD Audio is losslessly decoded to 7.1 LPCM for no loss in audio quality.
Same as the Apple TV 4K does, which is also the other powerful device that can handle Hi10P Anime easily.
In fact the ATV 4K is the most powerful Plug n Play media player on the market.
