Hang out with the best anime shows on Netflix now – Film Daily
Netflix has really stepped up its anime game. The streaming platform has experimented with producing its own shows, such as Castlevania. They also put a lot of effort into getting popular cartoons like A play & A punch.
At this point, there is more anime on Netflix than anyone can choose from. So where to start ? Here we have a list of the best anime that you can start watching on Netflix today.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
Demon slayer is a relatively new anime that is making waves. It is adapted from a manga that began in 2016 and ended its run in 2020. The story follows a young boy, Tanijiro Kamado, whose family is attacked by demons. All are killed except for her little sister who turns into a demon herself.
Kamado decides to train as a demon slayer in the hopes that learning about demons will help him find a way to heal his sister. The first season of the anime is on Netflix and its sequel is in theaters now. With a second season coming later this year, now is the perfect time to jump into this series.
The attack of the Titans
This radical anime epic is currently airing its final season. The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where the little humanity that survives lives inside a single walled city. Outside the walls are gigantic humanoid creatures, called Titans. The Titans attack and eat humans, apparently for no reason.
The show follows a group of friends who team up with the Boy Scout Regiment – elite soldiers who battle the Titans. If you are a fan of massive battles for the fate of mankind, then The attack of the Titans is the show for you.
Sword art online
Are you looking for a show that mixes your love of anime with your love of science fiction? Sword art online is a gargantuan multiplayer online role-playing game with a twist. On the first day of the game’s launch, 10,000 people log into its virtual reality gaming space. . . only to find out that they can’t leave without completing the match. Of course, dying in the game means that players also die in real life.
This anime was a huge success. It spawned spin-offs and six different video games. Later this year, a live-action adaptation of the anime will land on Netflix. If you’ve ever dreamed, or had a nightmare, of living in a virtual world, you’ll want to check out Sword art online.
This anime, like most, is based on a popular manga series. The show takes place in a world where people can use alchemy to magically transform matter. The main characters are two brothers who tried to use alchemy to bring their mother back from the dead and suffered dire consequences for their actions.
The original Fullmetal Alchemist started airing before the end of the manga. It has gone in its own direction and contains its own unique twists. A second series, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood followed the full storyline of the manga and featured a beefed up animation budget. You can find both versions of the classic anime spectacular on Netflix.
If you’re in the mood for a dark story then Death threat maybe for you. Its protagonist, Light Yagami, finds a mysterious notebook that has the power to kill anyone whose name is written in its pages. He goes on a mission to use the powers of the Notebook to kill anyone he thinks is immoral, and an elite Japanese task force goes on a mission to arrest him.
Death threat is tense & cerebral, dark & violent. The show was very popular and spawned a live-action remake. You can find both the anime and the live action movie on Netflix.
