Manga Ent. Titles to Cease Streaming on Netflix April 1st [Update]
Saturday, April 03, 2010 at 07:33 AM EDT
While watching Ninja Scroll through Netflix’s Instant Watch service last night on my Xbox 360, I noticed that it and Blood: The Last Vampire were both expiring on April 1st. I decided to see how many other Manga Entertainment titles would no longer be streamed after that date and I came up with a list, thanks to instantwatcher.com.
It doesn’t look like there will be any Manga Ent. titles to remain streaming after April 1st but most of the ones that are expiring still have DVDs available through the mail. (Yes, physical discs that you send back when you’re done!) I’ve indicated which titles currently do not DVDs available with [ND] for “no DVD”.
I think these are part of a bigger deal that Starz Media, of which Manga Entertainment is a subsidiary, has with Netflix because Stan Lee Presents: Mosaic and Stan Lee: The Condor are also expiring Apr. 1st and both were released by Anchor Bay Entertainment, another Starz Media component.
UPDATE 9:15 PM PDT: I forgot to mention that Manga Entertainment is still streaming its series (such as Virus Buster Serge) along with other publishers’ series (such as Gurren Lagann) on its YouTube channel, on Hulu, and on Manga.com.
