Let's talk about every terrible thing Netflix has done. Purely as a service, it's a mediocre, roundabout way of getting access to shows. There's some committee of people deciding what gets hosted and what doesn't, which is almost entirely decided by market demand rather than quality. Good movies get booted to make room for cape shit. You also have to wait a year longer to watch new seasons of shows that already aired, even if the season is being hosted in another country. The monthly rate for streaming has gone up over the years. Streaming as a paid service is also ridiculous because if you're paying money for data, you should have unlimited access to that data.

With that out-of-the-way, the more important issue is with Netflix's goal of controlling the anime industry, at least in the west(for the time being). Buying up streaming rights is one thing, but from a cultural standpoint, they want control too. They make live action adaptations and new dubs with changed translations to control the image of these shows. They get exclusive streaming rights to new shows while they're in production, which means they will definitely get some level of creative control, which inevitably means censorship and ideological injection. This kind of things actually is a slippery slope. People who cheer and get excited when they announce the next show they'll butcher are so naive I can't believe it. I'm dreading their Ghost in Shell reboot.

That GitS reboot looks like dogshit. Netflix probably isn't going to be the one to dominate anime in the west but regardless of who it is (Netflix/Disney/Fuckimation) they all have pretty much the exact same shitty censorship and ideological injection (like the Maid Dragon dub). Some people say Japan is in trouble of getting subverted or something, but as long as Microsoft is using a short-skirted thick-legged beautiful white girl to advertise Windows 10 I wouldn't put much stock in that.
It is a pretty shit service but I guess normalfags are a-okay with not actually owning anything they watch, watching things by market demand, and paying rates that they have no idea are absurd or unfair. Then again it's supposed to lose a ton of subscriptions after "The Office" moves to a different streaming service which, if true, would be really funny to watch, sort of like Tumblr dying literally overnight due to porn censorship.

Sol Levant looks interesting from what little I can tell.

But yes, I would prefer that they have as little to do with anime as possible.

I hate how they have some things on there purely to make sure that other services don't, then bury them. I liked the anime AICO: Incarnation that they claimed the rights to. What they did was dump it all out at once, which hurt its chances to have any sort of discussion on any anime sites, and ruined the fun of wondering what would happen week to week. It clearly wasn't meant to be put out that way either. They also either really insist on or outright force you to skip OPs and EDs.
God, it's just the worst. I don't think there's any worse way to treat anime than like this. Either they have no idea how anime fans enjoy watching a series, or they know and want to stamp that out.

I haven't actually seen the trailer before now. My already low expectations have been disappointed.

Eden looks good.

I think that Netflix is trying to be as different as possible to TV. Hence no weekly eps. Although weekly eps work better if your subscription is based on time.

Having everything on Netflix is better than the dozen streaming services we have now. Ugh.

All the splintering from Netflix has made me gone back to dark. Arrrrrrrrrr....
