Under the Netflix Original banner, Netflix has streamed anime like The Seven Deadly Sins
and Knights of Sidonia
before, but Perfect Bones
will be the first new anime available exclusively on the platform. The series will consist of 12 episodes and will be directed by Kazuto Nakazawa (who directed the animated sequence from Kill Bill: Vol. 1
). No release date has yet been announced, but the lack of promo art might be a sign that the series won’t be available in 2016, as noted by The Verge
