Anime has always had a small, faithful audience but nothing more. Netflix is trying to give it the recognition and credit it deserves.
Yh not in the uk. The anime selection here is piss poor.
"Anime Lacked a Global Audience"
Anime has been popular world wide since the 80's, especially in non English nations in Europe/Latin America and the world.
Future Boy Conan
tons of Anime adaptations of classic novels
GRANDIZER....NICE! So now ppl are gonna say that Netflix brought Anime to the forefront, unbelievable right? To be honest, all I watch is Anime. I guess if it's not Disney or Pixar then it doesn't exist. You know how many Animes have been blacked balled by the Academy? And those are the commercial Anime that we're nominated for an Oscar, not even the REAL anime that us extremely intelligent, video game slinging, puzzle solving, escape room enthusiasts, folks like to watch. Netflix......sighs!!!
everybody outside US & UK know the Lion King is a lame rip-off of the White Lion
It never lacked a global audience. Many millions of folks all around the world are downloading the latest shows straight from Japan.
Anime has lacked publishers in the West. And the few publishers it has, have priced those few titles they bought and own at such a high and greedy level that it's not very appealing for new folks to give it a try.
Not to mention broadcasters being too conservative to put it on the air.
All my anime comes a day or so after it airs in Japan and gets fan subs. I prefer the Japanese voice actors to some of the piss poor English voice actors and censoring of some animes for American viewers (JP DBZ is miles ahead of some of the censored English broadcasts for example. Master Roshi is so much more hilariously pervy in the JP versions and they'll show more violence in them as well). And yah, seeing the prices for some animes makes me laugh.
Who the hell disagreed w/your post? Unbelievable! ! I binged DBZ super and now waiting a week for the next episode is KILLING ME! ! I thought the fighters from universe 10 we're strong? Android 17 is killing them!! I think it's universe 10, the characters that use the "power of love. " my motto is: " if you prefer English then your not a real Anime fan.'
Master Roshi is hardly in any Dragon Ball Z episodes, maybe in Dragon Ball but I don't remember anything being censored in that either... Are you talking about Dragon Ball Super? Regardless of anything being censored in the TV broadcasts, the Blu-ray releases and streamed versions don't have anything censored. What 'violence' has ever been censored in Dragon Ball Z's American release?
Speaking of which, I heard that Goku will undergo a new transformation during his fight w/ Jiren. Is it true?
Yes more pointless transformations that Vegeta will struggle to get.
Lol what? Crunchyroll has 1m paid subscriptions and 20m users. Netflix just has capital to fund projects but now has a hilariously large amount of debt.
Lol wtf i don't even watch a lot of anime but netflix had nothing to do with "saving" it. Not sure who decided it needed saving, it's always been popular globally.
Lol! I know right!!
I don't know about "saving " it. Not everything is meant to be embraced by everyone. Maybe Netflix should help the Switch. Joking!

Nothing wrong with preferring your native language in the tv shows you watch. Why you act like you are a superior fan to the fans who also watch and buy anime is beyond me. Also I disliked his comment...
Not my post. It was the Rdgneoz3 post.
LOL! Um, Nothing could be further from the truth. DVD brought it global. Remember when there were DVD/Movie ad music media shops in the Mall? Sun coast? Best buy? The Good Guys? Tower Records? Frys? Etc. etc. etc. Same types of shops in Europe and other countries and global distribution to these outlets are what brought it to a global audience.
...No wonder the author is about as old as Bluray.
Anime Lacked a global audience because most animes since more than a decade are made by otakus for otakus
the result is anime with a plot line for kids with +18 contents
a lot good animes overshadowed by those animes because of otakus
So many anime look like it was made for pedos. Kid friendly appearance with tits and ass being the plot lol. Also a lot of them focus too much on the generic harem formula, I don't really understand the appeal in anime like this... I watch anime for entertainment just like live action movies and tv shows, but these harem stories are basically hentai plots with out the actual hentai making it pointless.
I disagree if you watch Elfen Lied it talks about rape, torture,etc. Unfortunately, there is a lot of anime with a mature storyline but it's animated in a very pervy way....
Do you know the difference between "most" and "all"?
Its called Ecchi and its not for kids.
not all ecchies
some of them comes with intense story not for kids but this is only minority
the vast majority of animes (doesn't have to be an Ecchi) doesn't suits neither kids nor properly grown people
it suits only grown people with mental age of 6
if anyone find this insulting then feel free to hit disagree (I know Hayao Miyazaki agrees with me)
but before that think about your life
I am not sure about this because I hope anime gets westernized.
Nope! Stop feeding us lies smh
Netflix has the worst selection, Hulu amd Crunchyroll are much better.
Netflix will destroy it, load it with propaganda.
Are you high??
