even reddit really doesn't discuss binge format stuff much

I already used the Stranger Things example earlier, it's probably one of netflix's most popular shows and a show specifically made to binge-watch yet the 'discussion' on reddit is almost all just memes and other s***posts because there's nothing ongoing to talk and theorise about, nothing to get hyped about for next week, no time in-between to discuss theories then discuss if you were right later because when you're binge-watching you're just seeing the answers right away with no point in guessing anything

also there's plenty room for speculation in an anime adaptation, there's a ton of anime-only people for any given show who don't want to know the source material's content (hence why people get so annoyed and manga spoilers)

seriously you should understand the concept of 'anime-only spoilers' at this point after all the drama about it

my point is reddit discussion forms do talk about shows even if its binge format while according to you no one really does. Also your stranger things example is not that great example for your case since the show is still insanely popular. People still talk about it and even whats going to happen next season. The memes stuff again would still happen at high volume even more if it was a weekly release since thats how social media works. Again there is not much room for speculation for source material stuff since people still can easily get their answers heck theres even post that still have spoilers in them its just people do the nice thing and cover them up.

The binge format is actually better for the example you just gave. People who work would do better with a binge format since they would have less time then someone who is in high school to watch something. Especially if said person has work and a family to take care of then that would decrease the chances even more to watch something so waiting a week would be a waste of time.
how is it better? I'm following several series, and I watch all the weekly episodes back to back on the weekend. This takes me roughly 2 hours, and I'm able to keep up with multiple shows as well as join the discussion online. If these shows were released all at once, I'd be watching a few episodes of a single series at a time or mixing and matching, but I'd miss out on discussion because it would take me several weekends to catch up in any individual show

Finalfantasy94 are you honestly trying to make the argument that releasing a brand new anime 5 months after it's premiered with no fanfare or advertising from Netflix itself is better for that anime to grow and develop

No what im saying is if something is a netflix exclusive that means not appearing on anything else like regular tv. Then to release it on a weekly basis when they can release the whole thing makes little to no sense. If it is a case where said show is being released in jpn on tv and netflix is just waiting for it to end to release everywhere else then yea I get the frustration from some people, but people here are legit saying the binge format is bad no matter what.

its better cause if you want you can watch as much of the show you like with what time you got especially if your a busy person. Also Some people just like continuing watching a chunk of the show. I mean its like eating a chip. if you like it you dont just eat one chip then wait next week to eat another chip.

A person has minimal time, and content is released at a slower rate. Seems like a perfect fit to me as the person would be forced to watch a bolus in segments and be unable to participate in the discussion until weeks out when the hype is gone. On the other hand, someone who has a lot of free time on their hands could just marathon a bolus. Makes perfect sense to me

No it's not. If you like binge watching, then watch it like this after series ending. From your perspective it's the same.
Weekly release is objectively superior in every possible way.
Dubbing should be permabanned.

Beastars isn't a netflix original and neither are most of their anime, it'll air weekly on TV in Japan starting next month (but probably won't show up on Netflix until at least February)

with every other service you can watch new episodes legally when they first come out, or if you like to binge watch you can just wait until it's finished first (and you can watch it as soon as it's done, as opposed to 6 months later after all the fansub's discussion has died and everyone else has moved on)

netflix licensing anime is worse in every possible way, even for binge-watching stuff

If you have responsibilities going on IRL it's also thousand times quicker watching a 20 min ep vs watching something in its entirety which can take hours and end up not even able to have a in-depth conversation on what you watched cause everyone else already watched it months ago.
