So, Jason DeMarco had shared an article on Twitter asking what other properties you would like to see turned into an anime series outside of Blade Runner and there was discussion in his feed about Robocop. Then Jason came with this comment:
Does anyone even have the license to Monster these days? There hasn't been any home releases since that one 15 episode set Viz put out like 12 years ago, and I don't think it's been available on any streaming platforms.Maybe they could try getting the rights to Monster. It did well when it aired on Syfy, and it's got enough episodes.
I would suggest Toonami dig into old IPs they already own and try rebooting them as anime for the block. Like what Adult Swim used to do with obscure Hanna-Barbara properties when they first started.
So Viz is it's on entity and has nothing to do with Sony/Crunchyroll/Funimation/Aniplex?
