30 New Anime Series Slated for Production by NETFLIX in 2018
Netflix has a budget of $8 billion to produce original film and television programs in 2018. I'm sure if any of us had that much cash floating around, the last thing we'd want to spend it on is making movies and series. However, Netflix have announced that they are going to be spending at least 50% of that budget on brand new content in its library by the end of 2018.
And with that comes the Anime productions. There will be 30 new anime productions planned for next year. Even though anime won't win Netflix any Emmy Awards, this will go a long way into creating strong partnerships and building them into a strong platform. If Amazon Studios can win Oscars for Manchester by the Sea, then surely Netflix cannot be that far behind.
Here is some content that we know is coming next year:
- Kyoto Animation's Violet Evergarden
- BONES' A.I.C.O. -Incarnation-
- DLE Inc.'s Sword Gai: The Animation
- Production I.G's B: The Beginning
- LIDEN FILMS' Lost Song
- MAPPA's Kakegurui
- Science SARU's DEVILMAN Crybaby
- TMS Entertainment's Baki
- Satelight's Cannon Busters
- Dwarf Studio's (Domo) Rilakkuma
- Toei Animation's Knights of the Zodiac: Saint Seiya.
Let us know what you think of this list, and if there is anything else that you'd look forward to being produced by Netflix.
