Probably the biggest change in the anime industry in the last couple of years (besides the invasion of the isekai genre) has been the rise of Netflix as a powerhouse in both anime production and also distribution. Like with the rest of their original content, Netflix is constantly releasing new anime series and movies every month, to the point where it can be overwhelming. While some of the available series are fantastic and ground-breaking, some could definitely be better.
It can be difficult to comb through the many anime series available on Netflix, especially if you’re a newcomer. Anime is a vast medium with its own genres and tropes, and it can be mind-boggling to decide just where to start. That’s why we have looked through the many available titles on Netflix to bring you the best of the best. (And all titles are listed in Netflix’s own curated Anime genre category, so that’s our metric for what’s considered “anime” here.) There is something in this list for everyone: kid-friendly animation unlike anything Disney or Pixar have to offer, non-stop action with epic stories told across hundreds of episodes, or even the kind of mature and even gory series that you can’t find in Western animation. If you’re looking to get into anime or see the latest and greatest, you’ve come to the right place!
We’ll be updating this list on a monthly basis as new titles become available. In the meantime, be sure to visit these other related articles linked below:
