Tokyo Keizai: Anime Industry Insiders Share Reservations About Netflix Streaming Model

Netflix also deals primarily with streaming deals, meaning that there are many cases where the production company has difficulty selling off the rights to merchandise, games, home video, and other forms of media. This is a problem for an industry that relies heavily on media mix franchises as supplementary forms of revenue. The management at one production company complained that “because the number of people who see the anime through streaming is limited, it failed to become a hit.” An insider at a different company remarked: “It would have been difficult for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba to become the huge hit that it was if it was only distributed through streaming.”
