I believe Ajin: Demi-Human the TV series has already been confirmed for a Netflix delaycast. Shame really, as the manga is excellent...

Here's the PR release, from the horse's mouth:
Netflix and Polygon Pictures together announce the world's leading Internet TV network will be the global home of the upcoming Anime series, AJIN: Demi–Human. Netflix members in Japan will be able to watch each episode of the series just 3 days after the original linear air date. All episodes of the series will premiere at once in regions Netflix currently operates outside of Japan in mid–2016.

It was the same with Magi and Aldnoah.Zero. I'm not partically fussed by this decision, my guess is that the English Dubs Aniplex produce are restricted to US & Canada only because otherwise we would've had access to Durarara!!x2's English Dub on Crunchyroll.

As for the idea of sales, I assume you got that from Jerome. In that case I say it won't do anything.

I think the idea is that the streaming of dubs replaces the cheap $30 edition normal companies would release. Since we still get that version, they don't need to stream the dub for us. (Also, I was under the impression that AL controlled streaming rights to some of the shows they got off Aniplex, so it might not have even been Aniplex's decision for A/Z.)

I honestly don't know who controls what when it comes to Dubs, it just surprises me how we even manage to get Aniplex shows on Netflix in the first place (I'm grateful no doubt).

I'm not. As much as I disagree with the Aniplex model, they are clearly one of the best companies at it. They have taken on board comments and have realised that they've got to stream shows in as many places as possible, so I can't really fault their behaviour in that regard.

Yeah but they also do funny things like stream the second persona 3 film and not the first one.

20 episodes are now on Netflix. EDIT: Confirmed Dub only.

There's no Japanese version avaiable if that's what you're asking.

From all reports it's a mid-tier 4kids affair (so not One Piece but Not Shaman King or Ultimate Muscle ether, maybe post syndication pokemon) that's being held up largely by Laura Bailey doing her best Sana voice.

A very appropriate title for that update.

While the name Glitter Force makes me want to cry, if they do actually have the Japanese version it would be interesting.

Edit: Though I guess they don't, then.

To be honest, I wonder how many of the people I've seen on social media complaining about Glitter Force would have actually watched Smile Precure! considering that the series is targeted at very young girls. Makes sense that such a series would be heavily localised to be honest.
