As per Carol Choi, Executive VP of Content Strategy at APAC, Disney, the collaboration allows them to work better on their future content development plans and their animation strategy in Japan. This also allows them to bring anime and Kodansha’s IP to the world.

The popularity of anime and other Asian content like Japanese and Korean dramas has grown twofold in the last two years. According to Parrot Analytics, the demand for anime has grown by 118 percent since 2020.

We are all aware of Kodansha being home to some of the bestselling titles like AKIRA and Attack on Titan. Although it is not clear whether this partnership will affect the previously released content, Disney certainly looks forward to becoming competitive as an anime streaming platform.
