            • a stupid question here, can Netflix release any of their titles on home release in the US or their partnership/license is only limited to streaming ? I would love to see a home release for Baki.

                It's pretty much up to the respective distributors to get rights to release any Netflix anime on home video. So far that's Funmation, Sentai Filmworks, and VIZ Media. So far most Netflix are not released on home video.

                Baki's publisher is TMS Entertainment. Like most of the Netflix anime, it's anyone's guess if it gets released on home video or not.

                  I guess that means that a distributor (say VIZ) would need to get the ok from both Netflix only ? Or they will also require to license it for home release from TMS ?

                    I understand, as a media hoarder, that many of us still want to own our favorite titles -- either as shiny discs, or as a paid item on Amazon or iTunes. However, in this brave new world of feuding streaming platforms spending gobs of money to control content, we may not always get what we want. At least, not for a while.

                    First, Netflix often does ask for exclusivity across every platform for a period of years -- usually three, I'm told -- just as a normal part of throwing so much money at the title. For Netflix as a business, the value in owning the rights to an anime is that it attracts new subscribers and/or keeps current ones engaged in the service, thereby ensuring subscriptions. If there's another way to get this anime when it's current, it no longer serves to draw people to Netflix.

                    And Netflix is spending a TON of money on these shows. And since their money is making up a bulk of the production cost, they get their way. Unlike much higher budget projects in the live action realm, there really is nobody else at their level of power to fight for other release methods.

                    The other issue is that the other people that would need to be interested in a show -- the disc publishers -- would need to be OK with buying ONLY physical media rights to the title. However, revenues from streaming and paid downloads are where a lot of the money is at these days, and most of the publishers insist on having those rights too. They are not interested in just making discs. Most of them are also focused on growing their online streaming businesses. Funimation wants to grow FunimationNow. Sentai wants to grow HIDIVE. Smaller publishers and non-traditional anime distributors may still be interested in just physical media rights, but they wouldn't be able to pay as much for them. Since any potential deal would likely not mean big money, even if Netflix DID allow it, nobody is really pushing for that to happen.

                    I'm pretty sure that most of the Netflix-exclusive titles will eventually find their way to a disc format, though it may be a few years before that happens, and who knows if the currently-existing English dub would be available to include. But for now, we don't know when, who, or how that will happen.
