Production I.G announced on Monday that its Anime Beans iOS and Android app will be available worldwide except in China beginning on Tuesday with 10 titles available with English subtitles. The titles include:
- Caramel Honey (based on Takuhei's manga of the same name)
- Monkey Peak (based on Kōji Shinasaka and Akihiro Kumeta's manga of the same name)
- Office Lover 2 (based on OKKO's Yūwaku Office Lover2 game)
- Would You Like Some Coffee? (based on Misato Konari's Coffee Ikaga Deshō manga)
- Kuruneko (based on Yamato Kuruneko's cat manga blog)
- Open Shut Them (based on Mayu Minase's Musunde Hiraite manga)
- Karada Sagashi (based on Katsutoshi Murase's manga of the same name)
- PRECARIOUS WOMAN EXECUTIVE MISS BLACK GENERAL (based on jin's Zannen Onna Kanbu Black General-san manga)

- Situation Movie Kento Itō 1 (Bushitsu Date-hen live-action "situation movie")
The Japanese version of the app currently has 271 programs, with approximately 240 anime programs. The global version of the app will launch with the 240 anime programs (40 anime made for smartphones, and 200 indie anime works) available, but only the 10 works listed above will have English subtitles. Production I.G plans to add more works and English-subtitled works to the app in the future.
Production I.G launched the Tate Anime app in June 2017 and it ended service on May 31. The app offered short (about three-minute) anime that update on weekdays, and each series had 10 episodes. The anime was presented vertically for smartphones. Production I.G rebranded the app as Anime Beans in June, and it no longer features exclusively vertical anime.
