I watched the first few episodes of Devilman Crybaby on Netflix and the animation was really awesome. I know the series was directed by Masaaki Yuasa, a really good animator and director.

However, I think we can all admit the quality of this show is above average. Netflix was part of the production committee and they certainly made a big contribution to the budget to the studio Science Saru.

I'd like to have sourced data on the total budget of the series and the amount Netflix has given.

Interesting as it may seem, we likely will never know the specifics, due to the reasons кяαzєя♦'s comment already pointed out.

Non the less, I figured, why not try and ask Netflix themselves? enter image description here enter image description here

All though it is not much information, we did however pin down the fact that Netflix only pays for exclusive rights and nothing else. As the support also suggests, it is somewhat of a trade secret.

I haven't personally tried to mail them as support suggested. However I don't think it is likely that a more descriptive/precise price would be mentioned by the pr team.
