Collection of the best anime on Netflix.
Netflix has officially gone all the way in on Japanese anime, reportedly investing truckloads of money into producing original series and movies, as well as making big-ticket acquisitions like the world-famous franchises Neon Genesis Evangelion, Cardcaptor Sakura, Saint Seiya, and others that hit the platform practically every month. But with so many options available, it’s hard for newcomers to know where to start, and Netflix doesn’t help by lumping its whole library under an “Anime” genre category. Anime encompasses countless different genres and subgenres and caters to several distinct demographics and tastes, just like live-action TV and film in the States. So if you want to give Netflix’s anime series a shot but were confused by seeing wildly different shows like Devilman Crybaby and Pokémon sitting next to each other, this list is for you.
