Netflix Anime

I started watching Seven Deadly Sins because Netflix kept bugging me about Season 2 being available. It's a Sh┼Źnen style show. The art is a bit simple - seems like a cross between One Piece and Dragonball. Story is starting to get a little more interesting.

Netflix has a decent set of exclusive shows. Ajin, Seven Deadly Sins, Kuromukuro (watched both seasons of that). Does Voltron count, too?

I'm not a fan of their binge method like they are doing Little Witch Academia.  Looks like they won't release the series until it's finish in Japan.

I have mixed feelings about it. I don't tend to binge a whole season in one sitting, but I might watch 2-3 episodes at a time.

Whenever Netflix has a new Marvel show I just watch one episode a day.  Not like I'm going to forget what happens between episodes.

Netflix's anime collection has gotten both better and worse over the past several years. Especially the streaming stuff.
I watched Gunslinger Girl (a wonderful story), El Cazador de la Bruja, Black Lagoon and others on DVD, and some of D-Gray Man, Elfen Leid, and started the Slayers a while ago for streaming.

I think right now, for me, Netflix anime is hit or miss.
It's all true!
Even the lies...

It's definitely unreliable for past season and non-original shows. Although, that's basically true of Netflix in general and, honestly, a pretty perplexing thing about the whole industry (television and movies).

Something reminded me of Nichijou the other day and I wanted to watch a couple episodes. Unfortunately, it's not streaming anywhere. I understand that's a consequence of how media companies license their material, but it's pretty stupid. At the moment, I could buy the DVD or watch it for free on YouTube - until the videos get flagged for violation and somebody else puts one up.

I don't understand why there isn't some model where a streaming platform gets last resort perpetual streaming rights ... at the time you access a show, it has to check a database to see if somebody else currently has the media rights. If so, you get referred there. If nobody else does, you get to watch it.

7 Deadly Sins is getting another season.  It's real good.
Oh, and a film.

Weird shit
Looks like a Hanna Barbera cartoon.

Was the trailer supposed to be funny? I mean, there were some obvious jabs at traditional anime norms, but they either fell flat or were especially labored (e.g. the Russian girl).

Maybe this is anime parody for people who never watch anime?

It reminded me of the Boondocks in style, but the voices didn't work at all well.  I'll probably check it out tho.
