Here’s a look at the anime 12 series hitting Netflix (Polygon), with the first titles coming in November.

Wired has more on why Netflix is getting into anime, and it can be summed up in three points:
- Trying to compete with Crunchyroll, not in scope but with exclusive titles
- Anime is one of the cheaper end of things, especially compared to $100 million for a season of House of Cards, and it's easier to manage subs and dubs for anime than live aciton
- By owning the shows outright, they can keep the programs streaming forever, around the world

They're doing 'Baki'?! Sweet! I knew I was going to watch Godzilla before even watching that trailer.
