Maybe we can get that yandere harem anime made now.

Or pitch ideas for shows to Netflix.


I got a better show.

It is the year 2017. A virus has broken out in Japan killing females left and right. But what it does to the men is much worst. It turns them into sex zombies. These zombies don't decay, they are capable of running, and the most fearsome part of all? They want your ASS. Cut to 3 days after the collapse of society. 6 guys, all from the same school, attempt to survive within the confines of the walls while warding off the horde hungry for their anuses. As their bond grow strong and their heterosexuality give way to full on yaoi and all that implies, the situation grows more dire. Who will survive the butt hungry zombies? What type of homosexual relationship will be forged under this struggle?

Rated M for mature.

Genres: Yaoi, Horror, Zombie, Post Apocalypse

Wasn't this an episode of some horror anthology show?

Wow this is an exciting time to be an anime fan. First Crunchyroll (well, I guess Funi was first because Dimension W) and now Netflix! Anyways, it's great to see more and more Western corporations join the fray! This should make for a lot more diversity and some awesome series.

Netflix Originals are some of my favorite live action programs. They're really good. They also seem to have a lot of freedom.

The real question I wonder if if they will "make anime" as in their original content or adapt previous existing works? I'm thinking of the former.


I'd say both. Look at Seven Deadly Sins! If you watch on Netflix they claim it's a Netflix original series:

I wouldn't be surprised if that whatever the Sins anime that is coming out next year (reboot or sequel) that Netflix made it happen in the first place.

I expect them to adapt shows and make originals.

Well, I wonder if these Netflix original animes will be made to appeal to the Western market. Instead of being based on some manga or video game, these Netflix shows could be based on well known sci-fi, fantasy, or horror novels and aimed at the young adult crowd.

It's hard to say, but at least in my opinion, if I were them I'd first start to appeal to Western Anime Fans. Funi is doing that with Dimension W and I bet Crunchyroll will do that too when they reveal their first project.

It's good to play it safe at first and appeal to the audience that is the most upfront. Western anime fans are the reason why the anim industry has gotten big outside of Japan, so give us something that we want and are familiar with. So make a show with conventional character designs, art styles, and animation styles and with mechanics that we are used too. Try to establish a base before making something too obscure because then you'll just fall flat on your face. Trying to go after the western mainstream right off the bat, is a bad idea because you may lose the Western anime fanbase and may not even appeal to the mainstream. Make it big with the western anime fans first before diverging to other places.

In regard to making an anime based on a western novel... well, I'd LOVE an anime of the Wheel of Time, but let's save that for later

What about the works of Terry Pratchett or Piers Anthony? Also Anne McCaffrey's "Dragonriders of Pern" novels could work or if you want to get into darker territory, Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman" or Stephan R. Donaldson's "The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant".

That could work later down the road, but I think right off the back they should go with something a bit more conventional and "safe" if you will.

I'd love to see a Conan anime based on the original stories, or maybe Red Sonya since the latest movie attempt fell apart.

Awesome! Although...I feel quite a bit apprehensive at how it will turn out.....I mean....I trust the anime creators who go to college and anime conventions, but I'm not too sure how I feel about Netflix being behind it or handling it....guess we'll see.

It'll probably be some fucktardery like newest Teen Titans.

Great idea. You could go for an art style similar to fantasy artists like Frank Frazetta or Ken Kelly, both known for doing artwork based on Robert E. Howard's stories. Plus to do justice to Conan or Red Sonja, they should be dark and edgy, certainly M rated material. Also would love to see H.P Lovecraft's stories get made into anime too.

I wonder if this is a wise move?

Netflix might be hilariously flush with cash right now, but that will not always be the case if they keep splashing it out on projects that are not guaranteed successes.

Yeah, if the shows they grabbed already are anything to go by, they'll probably be focusing on things that aren't "too Japanese" if that makes sense. Knights of Sidonia is set in space, so it has a neutral setting and Japanese names aside, I think Western audiences can buy into that show rather easily, at least the first season. And Seven Deadly Sins is a fantasy action/adventure series with rather decidedly not Japanese names, so it is really easy to buy into.

The wildcard here is Ajin, as that is the one I know the least about(though I guess I could rectify that, since CR has the manga.....).
