The platform was previously only available in China, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. Bilibili can be streamed in Singapore and Malaysia via its official website or via its official apps on the Google Play and Apple App Store.

Bilibili was previously available online to select Malaysia users in 2020 as part of a beta test that was closed to the public. With the platform’s wide launch in Malaysia, it is now available to all users.

While Bilibili is largely free-to-use, select videos may be blocked behind a subscription wall. The platform made headlines last month for launching a premium pay-per-view video channel.

Apart from its anime offerings, comic collections and mobile games, Bilibili also hosts a wide range of user-generated content, including gaming clips, streams and highlights, anime edits, fan reactions, memes, tributes, cosplay tutorials and more.

A spokesperson for the platform said via a press statement: “Bilibili intends to cultivate a platform where users are able to express their creativity and share their stories in any way and format they please.”

In other anime news, a new teaser trailer was released last week for the upcoming second half of hit espionage comedy Spy x Family. While a release date has yet to be announced, it has been confirmed that the anime will return for 13 more episodes in October.
