“We are truly honored to be announcing this new deal with Netflix for some of our most beloved anime series in our catalogue,” Akane Inoue, part of anime sales and licensing, international business development at Nippon said in a statement. “For many years, anime has been a driving force at Nippon TV where we have been producing hit anime titles such as Hunter x Hunter, Death Note, and many more. With anime continuing to surge in popularity around the world, the timing could not be better for this exciting partnership with Netflix.”
