Netflix to Co-Produce Anime With Production I.G, Bones, WIT Studio

posted on by Egan Loo
Alliance to co-produce, stream anime episodes worldwide

Streaming service Netflix announced a comprehensive business alliance with anime studios Production I.G and BONES on Wednesday. With this tie-up, Netflix will co-produce anime episodes from the studios and stream them in 190 countries.

The alliance includes both Production I.G and its sister anime studio in the IG Port group, Wit Studio. (IG Port is also the parent company of anime studios Xebec and Signal.MD, but Netflix did not mention those studios in its announcement.)

With this collaboration, Netflix aims to strengthen its animation lineup for its members worldwide with "high-quality anime from Japan." Netflix describes the relationship as a "win-win-win" for its members, anime creators, and anime production.
