Following the success of simulcasting and streaming of a variety of Aniplex anime series, Netflix has expressed their intention to join the anime business and make ‘the animes’ too.
Netflix has seen major success with series such as Seven Deadly Sins, Knights of Sidonia and classics like Gurren Lagann all streaming on the service. They also plan to stream Ajin: Demi Human in 2016 on the service.
While CEO Reed Hastings did not elaborate on the idea of producing original anime during his interview with New York Times, he did say that he hopes that they can make a great anime show. We also hope that they can as well because more anime is cool and stuff.
