Netflix’s Report on Anime

As per the recent report from Netflix, more than 50% of its users have at least watched one anime in the last year. Netflix has the biggest number of subscribers for a streaming platform and when you consider the number of users it has, it certainly is a baffling thing.

Usually, anime isn’t watched much outside of Japan and South East Asia. There are some popular titles that are watched in the west but when we consider anime as a whole, there isn’t much popularity for them in the rest of the world.

However, that notion is changing and it’s especially due to the existence of online streaming platforms such as Crunchyroll, Funimation, etc. People are now watching anime more than ever.
