If they ever add anime licenses do you think some of them should come with a chapter or just skins?

    Well, they already have added one, that is Attack on Titan. They were outfits for the survivors, except for the killer ones were Legendaries.

    As for other licenses? Hmm. I think it depends on the anime, like one that would be a lot of fun would be Cutie Honey, especially since she's an android shapeshifter and has many outfits. Her perks would be a lot of distraction type stuff?

    Though even better would be if they based it on the 2004 Live Action (which was released alongside Re: Cutie Honey, a remake of the original 1973 series.)



    Honey Kisaragi, Seiji Hayami (the reporter), Natsuko Aki (the cop), and Kyōko Izumiya (a janitor... or is she?) as survivors.

    The Killer would probably be Sister Jill, or MAYBE Panther Zora, but it would be more likely Zora would have contacted The Entity and been like "Can you get this Honey $*&*## out of my way? I'll give you Sister Jill too."

    Well Death note would be a very interesting concept, but it would probably play really badly if the killer had to walk around "finding the survivor names" like old Freddy before he could do harm to them. Better off being a collection of outfits.

    What killer would Ryuk from Death Note look best as? Probably the Wraith. I'd be down for that being a skin.

    Who else could be added?

    L: Jake

    Light: The Trickster(?)

    Misa: Feng Min

    It writes itself, really. Those are the biggest characters but they could probably have Renato be Mello, and Plague be another Shinigami if they wanted an even number of outfits.

    I saw Shiki on the last survey which got me really excited but to be perfectly honest there's only so many horror anime's that even exist so it was probably only on there for completion's sake but it would definitely fit. I just don't want a third japanese ghost killer two is enough.

    Personally I would be happy to see actual chapters, however, I think Anime-Chapters are really difficult to create since you also need to stick to the Anime when you create a Killer Power. And I am honest, I would have loved to see an actual Attack on Titan-Chapter, but on the other hand, the Titans mainly have their size in the anime which makes them somewhat of a threat and you cannot really bring this to DBD.

    So Skins are probably the easier solution. And will also be quite profitable. (I mean, imagine One Piece-Skins for the Survivors... BHVR would drown in money)

    That will never happen again, they have said. They now make sure that all future chapter licenses will be negotiated for the life of the game. That is NOT the case however for skins, as we saw with the recent removal of the Attack on Titan skins from the store.

    That depends entirely on the license, if it's a horror anime license then i'd say chapter, if not then cosmetics.

    I be also fine with having more anime skins too. But only depending on what the anime skins are.

    I wouldn't mind a Chapter. They should just make sure, that it's Horror and the Killer is actually scary looking.

    Where have they said that? All they've said is that no matter what content being removed is always a possibility due to how licencing content works.

    I'd be quite happy with just the skins. I'd love some Chainsaw Man skins, Makima for Nea fits well because of the inside joke.

    I think it was Cote that said it in a livestream once, that after the removal of the Stranger Things license, they've decided to make sure to negotiate future licenses so that doesn't happen again.

    If we get more anime licenses I would prefer just skins that have unique sounds and lobby music. I can't really think of an anime that could be an actual chapter (Ideally with a killer) aside from maybe Death Note. I'm not even a huge Death Note fan but that's the only one off the top of my head that could work.

    There are plenty of shows I'd love to see outfits from the shows reach DBD for some characters. I know it's likely an unpopular opinion but Jojo's Bizarre Adventure while I'd agree thematically has no place in DBD - there are a couple of outfits for some characters that would look good on some of the killers. Kill La Kill is another one but that one is too suggestive for the obvious picks. I'll make the meme suggestion and say Dio's part 3 outfit for Trickster.

    I don't watch much anime though so past the interest in cosmetics I don't have much else to add. I'll take note of some suggestions on this thread though on what to watch.

    Where has Cote said that exactly?

    Closest i've seen him come to saying that is in the Paulie Esther & King interview back in October 2021, where he says that characters/dlcs you buy will be usable for you for as long as DBD as a game exist, however that the option of still being able to buy a character/dlc if a license should expire is not always gonna be possible but that they're fighting tooth & nail to keep the possibility.

    Oh just let me call up my full database of transcripts of every livestream Dead by Daylight has ever done and.... Oh wait I dont have one.

    Maybe he didn't say it. Maybe I am remembering wrong. I don't have a transcript of every livestream as wonderful as that would be, so all I can say is I remember him saying that they were going to try to make sure that another Stranger Things incident couldn't happen in the future.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Berserk in here, but there is no way a killer could sacrifice Guts, that would just be weird. Kinda like a certain Alien killer being weaker than a Nurse lol.

    And since we both don't remember that being said at all, and in fact remember the opposite being said, then yeah I feel like you're misremembering. There's no need to get so shirty ab it tho like just say you couldn't find the livestream 💀

    One of these days we're gonna get One Piece. Just you wait.

    Though, that should not be an entire chapter. Just skins

    There's plenty of horror themed animes that would fit dbd.

    Tokyo ghoul would be a good one, ooh or parasyte.

    Tomie deserves her own chapter.

    That said, almost EVERY chapter/collab lately has been from a Japanese movie, anime series, video game, or just Japanese-inspired or anime-inspired, to the point where it's 25% of the roster at this point. I mean, we've got... Spirit, Sadako, Trickster, Oni, Nemesis, Wesker, Skull Merchant, Attack on Titan.

    Sadako and Nemesis probably deserve their spots in the roster, but we're still missing Chucky, Art the Clown, and a dozen other modern and classic horror icons that will come to your mind as you're reading this.

    And, I mean, we don't even have a simple vampire or a werewolf yet. I think we need some back-to-basics horror. Dredge was the right idea.

    The licenses are expensive? I thought it was just, "Here, if you let us use your character, you can have a 30% cut of sales" kinduva deal.

    And I thought ST was removed mostly because a new video game was coming out.

    Personally, I didn't think AoT deserved its own chapter. Would've bought it (and I ended up buying the killer skins, anyway), but I probably wouldn't have liked it. I read a volume or two of the manga back in the day before the anime became popular, but it was kinda meh. Dark at times, but was it really horror?

    If it's something truly iconic, they should give it a chapter.

    "The licenses are expensive? I thought it was just, "Here, if you let us use your character, you can have a 30% cut of sales" kinduva deal."

    Anime licences are fairly expensive - at least going through my previous knowledge, when Bleach Brave Souls (which is licenced off of the anime) was trying to run TYBW characters (from the manga) they had to get an entirely different licence and it was so expensive they had to stop doing it for 2 years to recover 💀.

    Also most licences require a flat fee plus royalties, and it's entirely possible the royalties are just too much.
