What is Netflix doing that other streaming services aren't. At least it gives Studios a bit more reign to do certain projects and they wouldn't be all falling ass backwards trying to go for Netflix deals if other services were just all the same.

It is affecting the industry in a negative way, little by little. Currently it just slowly killing off OPs and EDs, but eventually if it actually does take over anime expect it to be Westernized to death, then you have the simulcast being in danger of dying as well, Netflix is not the future.

There is no fucking way. The Japanese are still living in an era with television as a main source of entertainment, Netflix isn't killing the game in Japan.

And Westernization factor? Obviously not. There is plenty of stuff on Netflix that exists without it and creators could use being influenced by outside Eastern culture, I don't see how it determinants the work whatsoever.

Also really? Death of OP/ED is a huge concern here. Wow.

Whats funny is that anime where crunchyroll is on the production list ends up being the most rushed series. If you look at their credit list its full of overworked ppl. Meanwhile Netflix anime tends to have strong production because they aren't rushing the creators.

If anything Crunchyroll is ruining how anime is made and because of its popularity they fund more and more series and spreading the talent in japan thinnly.

Oh please be good. I love the manga most dearly so I really hope they can nail the awesome art and fights.

Plus the manga might be localized & if it does I swear I will buy every volume the second they come out, even twice over if I have too.
I used to be a watchmaker.

Implying that all op/eds are good and top of the game, and all anime ecchi/harem crap is even good for the industry tho
And I hope simulcast dies, its a fucking nightmare to watch JoJo weekly instead of binge watching it

Honestly though. I'm so tired of people acting like Netflix is the absolute worst streaming service for anime, just because it isn't their entire library.
