Netflix had previously announced that its anime series, The Way of the Househusband, based on a Japanese manga series, will debut on 8th April 2021. The number of anime titles coming to Netflix this year is reportedly nearly double the total number of anime series and movies it released in 2020 according to Variety.


“We want to be able to pride ourselves as being the top entertainment destination with good quality content. The growth of our business is directly connected to the growth of our anime,” Netflix’s chief anime producer, Taiki Sakurai, said to Bloomberg.


Netflix is looking to gain more share in an increasing $23 billion anime market. The service says the number of households that streamed its anime offerings last year increased by half from 2019. And, with the market expected to grow to more than $36 billion by 2025, according to Bloomberg, Netflix will be looking at growing its share further.
