I was reading an article about all of the Netflix releases and how the CEO was a big anime fan. For a big anime fan, he can't quite understand that anime fans don't want the drop and binge releases. I know that they can do sort of similucasting with their anime in Japan (they are usually release a couple days of airing) but they can't do that with the rest of the world. That's probably the most frustrated thing about Netflix that they can do it but refuse to do so. I believe their simultaneous world releases will be drop and binge. If it isn't that would shock me.

It's nice that Netflix is pouring money into the animation studios so they can make stuff they want to make. Again their releasing plan is just annoying especially to me because I don't really binge.

Speaking of lack of apps, HiDive needs some or they can be like Daisuki.

Man I'm gonna have to go through all those physical releases you guys mentioned. All I remember off hand is New Game and Myriad. So many good releases upcoming. Gotta prepare the wallet, it's in for a big hit.

Also I'm pretty happy Netflix got Violet Evergarden. It totally sucks we'll have to wait longer but I'm willing to be patient. And I know it'll look great streamed there too. I still have many issues with CR so I'm pumped. :3 I think the wait will be worth it.

And also good to hear they're willing to help studios out so they can make the shows they want. Instead of them making what's popular at the moment to make some money. We need some more risk shows that will challenge everyone and break the mold. More passion projects. I'll always love quirky anime comedies, club shows and slice of life as long as it's done well, but we need some mixing up as of right now. But there will always be a place for thw more quirky shows i believe. Hope I remembered the topic right cause it's been a day or so and I'm foggy on some of the cast details.

Also thanks for answering the questions, hope they weren't too heavy or personal. Kinda funny you mentioned March Comes in Like a Lion and Orange in passing of shows that hit those personal notes for people. Those are two shows that hit me kinda personally as well. They definitely came in at the right time and was what I needed. They were a great outlet week to week. Partly why I love anime is they seem to have those shows that can get more personal than most stuff over here. It's very enveloping and I love it.

Thanks again guys, great as always. Hope to hear that horror cast soon! I'm excited for that. :3

Aaargh... Funimation, are you serious? I just dumped money on the Future Diary DVD/BD combo pack a while ago - now they're gonna re-release it with the OVA :/? Well, as long as they actually dub it, I'll probably bite. Maybe I'll wait until the price goes down, though.

A kickstarter for an Aria dub, huh? I don't know too much about the show, but I remember Tori worships it (although I'm not sure how much our tastes align), and genre-wise, it looks like it could be for me. I might just have to create a kickstarter account, after all.

Well, different strokes for different folks. I, for one, only binge-watch anime. That being said, I don't see the downside to airing weekly episodes since people like me can simply wait until the last one releases and then watch it at their leisure.

It's important to note, and I didn't know this at the time of recording, that this kickstarter initially is only for Season 1. Though they may add stretch goals later to Dub/HD the rest.

I should clarify that drop and binge is fine if everyone gets drop and binge. It's when Japan airs the series weekly and Netflix puts the episodes up weekly over there but yet the rest of the world has to wait for the entire series to be done and then some time after that to get the series is what I criticized Netflix for. If they can a weekly release model in one place, why not do it everywhere else? They just alienated the hardcore anime fans this way which Amazon also does with their double paywall.

Here's an ANN article talking about Tomohiro Machiyama's comments about Netflix.

Also the first season of Aria was just added to Crunchyroll.
