Hot & Trending: Anime Special

The increasing global recognition of Japanese pop culture and the emergence of robust digital distribution platforms are driving the expansion of the anime industry in Japan. Moreover, the burgeoning demand for innovative narrative techniques and distinctive animation styles is propelling the expansion of the anime industry. Likewise, the advancement of animation technologies, which necessitates more intricate storytelling and animation techniques, is fostering the desire for varied anime content, which in turn plays a role in the growth of the market.

Crunchyroll (owned by Sony Group Co.), a leading American OTT provider and a key hub for streaming Anime in the US, is actively expanding its library by securing numerous titles. This strategic move aims to attract new subscriptions in response to the slowdown in new content creation.
