Netflix has announced that the streaming provider plans to launch 40 new anime titles in 2021 following a successful 2020 rollout of new anime content. This is especially after the success of its 2020 release Blood of Zeus.
We already know Netflix has big plans for anime series this year including the upcoming Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, Record of Ragnarok, Yasuke, and The Way of the Househusband.
Variety reports that Netflix has doubled its number of anime series and movies coming to the platform this year compared to 2020. In a statement during Tokyo’s AnimeJapan 2021 Expo the company expressed their love for the genre with Netflix’s chief anime producer Taiki Sakurai saying:
“We want to be able to pride ourselves as being the top entertainment destination with good quality content. The growth of our business is directly connected to the growth of our anime.”
