Last week, Netflix announced that they acquired the domestic rights to the Ajin – Demi-Human TV series. The company will simulcast the series in Japan, with episodes hitting the service three days after its première. The show will hit all markets outside of Japan in mid-2016.

The show is currently scheduled to run for 13 episodes.
