When Space Dandy was first revealed many people thought it was going to be a huge hit. With Shinichiro Watanbe behind the idea and Studio BONES handling the show, surely we were in for a treat right? Well, sort of is the best answer to that.
Considering the string of delays hitting Anime Limited releases as of late you’d be forgiven for not expecting news that the company have moved the release of Kill la Kill part 1, twice, but most definitely in our favour!
Netflix has had quite a few additions in the anime department as of late, mostly thanks to UK publisher Anime Limited. Recently we saw Kill la Kill and Gurren Lagann find their way to Netflix and today we see the arrival of Samurai Flamenco.
All 22 episodes of the series have been added to the service. It’s available to watch subtitled as the series hasn’t been dubbed. Samurai Flamenco tells the story of Masayoshi Hazama who having grown up watching superhero’s on TV inspires to become one and help make the world an overall better and more peaceful place, despite the fact Masayoshi is an normal everyday person with no powers at all. The series is an anime original and was directed by Takahiro Omori at the Manglobe studio.
Interesting news appeared this morning as Anime Limited revealed that Kill la Kill and Gurren Lagann are now available to watch on Netflix UK!
All 25 episodes of Kill la Kill have gone up on the service and can be watched subbed. Meanwhile all 27 episodes of Gurren Lagann have gone up on the service and can be watched subbed or dubbed. Both are top class series’ so it’s really nice to see them being added to Netflix. You can read my review of Kill la Kill right here
Overall the range of anime on offer to the UK via Netflix is fairly slim compared to the US offerings, but with Anime Limited seemingly interested in bringing more anime to the service here we should have some fairly interesting times ahead!
