Middle East and North Africa media and entertainment giant MBC Group has expanded its partnerships with key anime studios and production houses in Japan to bolster its anime offering on its streaming platform Shahid.
Under the move, the group has acquired a number of series, including TV Tokyo’s recent 52-episode hit Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War, based on the Bleach manga series by Tite Kubo, about a teenager with the ability to see spirits.
The series, which recently returned following an eight-year hiatus, will stream on Shahid at the same time as Japan and the U.S.
All the previously broadcast seasons of the show are also currently available on Shahid. MBC Group has also extended a partnership with Toei Animation for more episodes of One Piece, the blockbuster long-running series based on Eiichiro Oda’s manga series of the same name.Read more on deadline.com
