More Anime Could be Leaving Netflix

We already heard about the latest Pokémon titles leaving Netflix but it seems more titles are in danger as well. With Netflix’s anime generally staying up from 12 – 24 months, Gunslinger Girl and the Irregular at Magic High School could go next. Of course, Aniplex has renewed titles at the last minute before so there are no guarantees but I would recommend seeing these while they are up.
