The upcoming anime will premiere only on Netflix.
Netflix and Production I.G have announced a new deal that will allow the streaming service to exclusively air the anime series 'Perfect Bones.' This will be the first time that an original anime will debut all of its episodes simultaneously in 190 countries.
"We are incredibly excited to work with Production I.G, who have worked on hit series such as Attack on Titan and Psycho-Pass, in bringing one of the most daring new Anime titles produced today to all Netflix members and Anime fans around the world," said Erik Barmack, vice president, international originals. “In an era where the Internet knows no bounds, we are proud to deliver high quality original Anime to fans all over the world, at the exact same time, no matter where they live whether it be Japan, France, Mexico, the US, and beyond."
'Perfect Bones' is set in the future where scientists have tried to create the "perfect human" in hopes of keeping peace in the universe. After nearly achieving their goal through several children, the scientists send their "new humans" for further training where they are kidnapped by an evil organization set on using their powers to implement their own concept of a new world order.
Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, President & CEO of Production I.G, said about the collaboration, "Among all the tv series and films Netflix offers, the titles I personally find the most amazing are Netflix originals. Production I.G is eager to present another impactful title brought through our creators’ passion and imagination. We're very excited about Perfect Bones!"
The show is being directed by Kazuto Nakazawa and will consist of 12 episodes. An exact release date has not been announced. A current Netflix subscription starts at $10 for HD streaming and $12 for Ultra HD streaming.
