DeNA's MyAnimeList Offers over 20,000 Licensed Anime Episodes

Content now provided by three major video streaming services;
MyAnimeList envisioned as web portal for officially-licensed anime


TOKYO, JAPAN – April 4, 2016 – DeNA Co., Ltd. (Tokyo: 2432) today
announced that anime videos streamed online by Hulu in the U.S. and
Crunchyroll worldwide are now accessible in selected regions outside
Japan through MyAnimeList (myanimelist.net), a website operated by
DeNA's U.S. subsidiary MyAnimeList, LLC for anime fans around the
world. With the addition of these two video streaming services, the
total number of officially licensed anime episodes viewable worldwide
on or through MyAnimeList is now over 20,000.

“With a wide variety of content from three major video streaming
services, MyAnimeList will drastically improve accessibility to
officially-licensed anime episodes for fans worldwide,” said Takeshi
Sumida, CEO of MyAnimeList, LLC. “We believe that this will make a
positive contribution to Japan's anime and manga industry. We hope to
establish MyAnimeList as the go-to web portal for licensed anime, and
continue to add new features and content for sales.”

Every month, more than 10 million anime fans visit MyAnimeList where
they use the website's database to make their own lists of anime they
have watched, post reviews, and exchange information with other users.
Following the purchase of MyAnimeList, DeNA Group began embedding
videos streamed on external services onto MyAnimeList anime database
pages. In July 2015, videos streamed by Anime Consortium Japan Inc.'s
DAISUKI.net became accessible on MyAnimeList.
