Netflix has added the Spring 2019 series Carole & Tuesday onto their streaming service starting today (30th August).
Carole & Tuesday is an original anime series animated by studio Bones and directed by Motonobu Hori with Shinichiro Watanabe assisting as chief director. The show is being broadcast in Japan as part of Fuji TV’s relatively new +ULTRA programming block and with this new block, it is streaming exclusively through Netflix much like how NoitaminA is streaming exclusive to Amazon Prime, though now amended to be just for Japan only.
Netflix is releasing Carole & Tuesday into two batches. The first batch is available today with episodes 1-12 that can be watched in multiple audio and subtitle languages. Audio options include the original Japanese as well as English, European Spanish, French, and Brazilian Portuguese. Subtitle options include English, Japanese Closed Captions, French, Polish and Arabic. Note that the audio and subtitle options vary in each territory.
As the series is still airing in Japan until the end of the Summer 2019 season, Netflix will release episodes 13-24 later down the line but no exact release date has been given at the time of this post.
Shinichiro Watanabe has been known over the years for a number of his works on anime; including Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Kids on the Slope, Space Dandy (as chief director), Terror in Resonance and also one of the shorts for both The Animatrix and Genius Party. Studio Bones animated a ton of anime shows and films including Cowboy Bebop the Movie, Fullmetal Alchemist, Mob Psycho 100, My Hero Academia, Soul Eater, Space Dandy, and Sword of the Stranger.
Fuji TV’s +ULTRA programming block currently consists of INGRESS the Animation (from Craftar), REVISIONS (from Shirogumi), and Carole & Tuesday, as well as upcoming titles BEASTARS (from Orange), BNA: Brand New Animal (from Trigger), Drifting Dragons (from Polygon Pictures), and Great Pretender (from Production I.G). All of which are or will be streaming exclusive to Netflix. You can view what else will also be heading to Netflix via our 2019 round-up here.
