Nippon TV’s July drama series Death Note is set to broadcast and/or stream in over 120 countries and regions soon after each episode airs in Japan, setting a new record in the global breadth of distribution for Nippon TV dramas.
In the U.S., Europe, Middle East, and Africa, Crunchyroll, a company that streams animations online, and Mperience, will make each episode available only a few days after airing in Japan. In Asia, Channel J, the South Korean cable channel, will broadcast the programme approximately one week after airing in Japan.
Death Note continues to be wildly popular both in Japan and abroad. The animation continues to be streamed in the U.S. and Europe and programme-related goods remain in high demand. That this programme will be broadcast and/or streamed in such a large number of countries and regions soon after airing in Japan is testament to the immense popularity and universally-appealing world view of Death Note.
