Netflix is doubling down on its anime expansion by making huge announcements regarding their content slate for 2023 and 2024. The streaming service has made strides by increasing its library with IPs from Japan and South Korea, which will include animated shows and original adaptions.
“Showcasing both current and upcoming titles, this year’s highlights include anime based on legendary IP like PLUTO and Onmyoji, as well as newly announced projects Ōoku: The Inner Chambers and Yakitori: Soldiers of Misfortune,” Netflix said in a statement. ” Returning to AnimeJapan 2023, Netflix showcased their diverse slate of current and upcoming anime including fan-favorites like PLUTO or newly announced series Ōoku: The Inner Chambers, delighting fans both in and outside Japan during multiple booth presentations and a star-studded stage event.”
‘Pluto’ is based on a manga written and illustrated by Japanese creator Naoki Urasawa. The Tokyo-based publisher Shogakukan released the series between 2003 and 2009 in eight volumes. Viz Media releases it in the United States. The anime was released as an original net animation from the animation production companies Genco, Tezuka, and Studio M2.
Netflix continued, “The broad lineup across genres like sci-fi, action and more includes newly announced titles Ōoku: The Inner Chambers (Coming in 2023), the first anime adaptation of the hit manga by Fumi Yoshinaga, or Yakitori: Soldiers of Misfortune (May 2023), an anime series adapted from a brand-new military science fiction novel by Carlo Zen, who made his debut with The Saga of Tanya the Evil. These and more titles are joining the previously announced Onmyoji (Coming in 2023), an animated series based on the world of Baku Yumemakura’s well-known tales about the ancient yin-yang diviner Abe Seimei, which is set for release later this year.”
Yoshinaga’s ‘Ōoku: The Inner Chambers’ was an alternative history romance manga serialized in Melody magazine from 2004 to 2020 in 19 volumes. Viz Media also publishes this title in the United States.
