From a practical standpoint, I think it would be pointless for AX to host the premiere if a licensor doesn't license it. Be it CR, Funi, Amazon Prime, or Sentai Filmworks, just don't let Netflix get it.

Don't jinx us, KyoAni did this last year with Violet Evergarden and look where that got us.

Oh god I hope not. Because it does seem like the kind of show that Netflix just might grab. Sad

I thought Amazon had stopped with the whole Anime thing after they shut down strike.

No, they still have a contract to stream all the shows that are broadcast during the Animeism and Noitamina programming blocks. They're streaming a few shows this season, such as Wotakoi and Magical Girl Site, and I'm pretty sure they have a few next season too.

We can encourage them through social media to not let Netflix get it (to the best of their ability), but that might not work.
