If those were really Netflix-produced anime (anime that will debut on Netflix, and not on Japanese TV), then there's no problem really. They can ask Japanese studios to produce show for them, and there's no problem with that. In fact, I'd prefer them doing that since it would remove the time constraints that plague anime production since Netflix will just release the show all at once, not on a weekly basis. Anyone knows which of those shows are debuting on Netflix only (and not on Japanese TV)?

. . . . . . . . . . . . . how is this bad, though?

How is it bad for someone else to make an anime?

That just means there's more anime.

You people have no idea what business is. You think anyone who isn't from your otaku club is automatically evil. That's silly and childish.

I have no problem with Netfilx they don't have a double paywall like some other places that start with an A.

..and the fact that so far there shows have had physical release as well. I'm curious to see if that happen with the Amazon stuff.

I'll admit I think Netflix is making a mistake by focusing on Binge-watching. There is usually a conversation to be had with each season of anime, people enjoy talking about each episode each week and those waiting on netflix have to miss out on that conversation. By the time the show finally shows up, many people have already watched it.

Now some of us are willing to wait, but I think Netflix is missing out on a lot of what fans enjoy about anime. Not just the shows themselves but talking about them with everyone.

My own policy is if it is available legally and at a reasonable price I'm willing to wait., there is plenty enough stuff to watch each season as it is, so waiting on a few shows doesn't hurt much. So Netflix I have no problem with and I'm willing to wait. I just think they are missing out with their current distribution modle.

Hold the horses.
Saint Seiya remake?!
Is Netflix funding that?

I would prefer for Netflix to release things that they're just licensing that air on tv in Japan weekly instead of all at once.
Stuff they make themselves for yheir service they can do what they want with.

Uh, it's annoying that Netflix forces you to the binge watch model for simulcasts that any other service would release weekly. It sort of kills your ability to discuss the show with others unless you darkside it.
That's my only gripe with them. I enjoyed Castlevania and Voltron and look forward to Netflix making new shows. They're more than welcome to release their own stuff however they want.

Netflix sure is getting aggressive here, and while it's bad for me as a heavy viewer, it certainly helps out the industry as they can pay more than what everybody except Amazon can pay. Netflix needs to make these show available to watch during the season as this is a lost opportunity for them. Instead of people resorting to binge watching on a single month subscription, they could easily increase their profits with the need to be continuously subscribed to watch new episodes. At least they don't have that damn double paywall that Amazon does, but I want them to take my money and they can't do it like this.

They model themselves on binge watchers - most jump in for that one binged show and stick around. Even if they don't you paid a month to sub to a service you wouldn't normally have, it's hard to argue with something which works so well as Netflix (and better than Amazon at which DOES simulcast all shows but resorted to double pay wall with strike, that's telling IMO).

From what is written on ANN, it sounds like AICO, B: The Beginning, Cannon Busters, and Sword Gai are going to be only on Netflix. Almost all of these shows are listed as Spring 2018 as well so that's a huge anime dump for Netflix.

I have no real problem with Netflix's binge model since there are always other things to watch. It does tend to kill the hype when they have shows airing weekly in Japan only to show up many months after it ends on Netflix, though. I hope they move towards financing their own shows without having them being simulcast in Japan. It sounds like that's where they are headed. That may lead towards a change in what gets animated as well. Less moe and more actiony shows would also be a positive for me.
