The Japanese portal AV Watch published an article with the title “The number of Netflix paying subscribers has exceeded 200 million. More than 25 original productions for Japan in the year 2021 ”, where the potential that the Netflix platform is exploiting in the production of original anime that it distributes globally from Japan was discussed.
“(Omission) In 2021, the policy is to accelerate the expansion and distribution of content originating in Japan, with more than 25 original productions, between animation and live-action, planned to be distributed from Japan this year. In addition, many other projects are about to begin development. We will continue to distribute and broadcast original projects such as Eden and Biohazard: Infinite Darkness. "
"" It is clear that Netflix is currently one of the most important anime producers in the market, "the company mentions in its results report for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020. In addition, Netflix productions, which had been suspended for the COVID-19 pandemic, have resumed their work in almost all regions. Currently, more than 500 projects have entered post-production or are in the pre-production stage ”.
“In 2021, practically one or more of our original projects created by excellent authors will be distributed almost every week. Even for projects originating in Japan, the category of “feature film” will be promoted, so original films from Japan will be distributed in 2021 on the platform for the whole world ”, concludes the article.
