Netflix Aims to Produce 30 New Anime Projects for 2018


It seems as if Netflix is doing pretty well, especially with its original programming. One would hope so, at least, because the streaming service’s new content budget is between $7 billion and $8 billion, and a healthy chunk of that is going to go toward the production of new anime.

Specifically, Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos says they’re putting some of that money toward producing 30 new anime series, all of which are planned for 2018. Joining those are plans for 80 new original films, so expect your queue to be pretty busy throughout next year.

Netflix most recently debuted its first original anime in the form of Ezra Koenig’s Neo Yokio, starring Jaden Smith and his giant Toblerone.
