At Disney’s annual content showcase in Singapore, the company unveiled its upcoming anime slate and an expanded partnership with longtime Japanese collaborator Kodansha.
The first title announced under the expanded Kodansha deal is a second season for Tokyo Revengers subtitled Tokyo Revengers “Christmas Showdown Arc”. The new season will launch on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar in January of next year.
During its presentation, Disney also revealed that the total hours of locally-produced Asian content streamed on Disney+ is now eight times more than it was last year at this time. It’s a clear point of emphasis for the company as anime’s popularity continues to grow worldwide.
