Crunchyroll and Netflix have different ways of releasing anime this season. Crunchyroll is putting out many different anime, but they might not stay popular for long.
On the other hand, Netflix is releasing fewer anime but is more strategic. They have succeeded with their adaptation of Pluto, a famous manga from the 2000s.
Pluto is based on a manga by Naoki Urasawa, who created Monster and 20th Century Boys. Urasawa’s manga itself comes from Osamu Tezuka’s Astro Boy. Now, it’s a Netflix anime series.
The Pluto series, which started on October 26, follows an AI detective, Gesicht, investigating Pluto, a serial killer challenging advanced robots, including the iconic Astro Boy, Atom. What makes it more interesting is that Pluto’s victims have fake devil horns put into their bodies.
