Netflix is a low key source for anime. You can find older classic like Rurouni Kenshin for a good Sunday evening. Netflix also licenses anime specifically for the platform. Some examples include the Little Hitch Academia, Knights of Sidonia and Seven Deadly Sins. The mix of titles and genres is good enough for most anime fans, though Netflix piles in comparison to sites like Funimation, VRV, or Crunchyroll. Still, there are a lot of options with some old classic as well as newer anime. Let's look at the best anime on Netflix!
Cutting life and tired
Drama and Romance
Secret and Thriller
Horror and Gore
There is a lot of good anime on Netflix, but we couldn't all fit what we liked in the list above. Here's a lot of honorable listings if you want more options. Please note, we do not list some apps like Fairy Tail, Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online, Bleach, Case Closed, Yes Bizarre Adventure, and Naruto. Netflix does not have the full run of any of these programs and it makes them incomplete experiences. They are still good anime, though.
Black house servant – Black Butler is a comedy drama about a 12-year-old child who makes a contract with a devil-maker to kill and kill the people who killed his parents . The show features tons of adult themes, dark comedy and entertainment activities. The episodic nature of the show gives it a slower than normal fit, but the characters are memorable and enjoyable. Don't let your kids watch this one, we trust.
Castlevania – Castlevania is not really an anime in the traditional sense. It's an American-made display with Japanese anime style animation. This follows the basic plot of Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse of 1989. The show is currently running for 20 episodes with good pacing. It's an excellent nostalgia trip for people who played the original Castlevania games.
Code Geass: Rebel's Lelouch – Code Geass is a cult-classical action-drama show. You follow the adventures of Lelouch, a dramatic student with some great goals. The performance leaned heavily on its consistent plot turns, Lelouch's dramatic dramatic, and some good mecha battles. Once you really lean into the show's absurdity, it's a very entertaining thrill. Netflix ran the whole anime, but unfortunately not one of the OVA's.
The Fate Series – Netflix has several Fate shows to choose from. They include: Fate / Stay Night: Unlimited Bladeworks, Fate / Apocrypha, and Fate / EXTRA Last Encore. It's pretty good action adventure shows with fantasy elements. Characters battle for the Holy Grail, an old relic that is capable of giving one wish. Netflix has every episode of each show, but it doesn't have every lottery in the series.
Fullmetal Alchemist (a Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) – Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Fraternity is one of the most popular anime ever made. Both shows follow the Elric brothers through a story of action, adventure, fantasy and mystery. The original Fullmetal Alchemist told better pacing and story while Brotherhood had a better end and a more mature feel to it. You can't go wrong either. Both performances are pretty old, but keep up with today's standards.
The devil is a part-time! – This comedy anime has the devil himself. He is excluded from his empire and has to do in the real world. He follows a 9-5 work on this anime's version of McDonald's (called MgRonald's) and hilarity. The show only lasts for 13 episodes, so it's easy to print over a weekend. You won't be blown away by its basics or execution, but it's still a good performance.
Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet – This one is an adventure fantasy show with excellent animation quality and a good fit. It follows a "mecha" pilot string in a world that is almost completely out of the water. The 13-episode show has one big story bow with a good climax and some decent action. It's a bit of a procedure like the anime, but the unforgettable characters and animation help this one out.
Hunter X Hunter – Hunter X Hunter is an older anime and a forerunner of MMORPG anime such as Sword Art Online and others. The show turns to Hunters who kill animals, are looking for treasure, and trace people. The show has excellent fantasy action, but it is also one of the older anime on the list.
InuYasha – InuYasha is a very popular action-fantasy anime. You can remember that this one was on TV when you were younger. It follows the half-devil InuYasha in his quest for jewelry screens. It's a classic style action from the 2000's, so there's a lot of screaming, fighting and a few bits of comedy to move the flow. It's definitely better than very similar anime and it's still a fun look.
The Magi Series – The Magi series consists of three anime, Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Magi: The Kingdom of Magic, and finally The Adventures of Sinbad (in that order). It follows a kid's tower user and its poles while discovering the secrets of a particular dungeon and then joining a massive battle. The point of departure is definitely not unique, but the performance is fun to watch.
Reviews – Revisions are a mecha action show and one of several Netflix originals on this list. It begins with a journey of 300 years in the future to fight Revisions, a race of cyborgs. Netflix now has the first 12 season's first season available and has excellent animation, pacing and English voice stories. You should be able to get through it quickly over a weekend.
Rurouni Kenshin – Rurouni Kenshin is a nostalgia journey for many anime fans. The action adventure show takes place in the late 1800's in Japan and follows the story of Kenshin while saving Japan from evil. The show originally aired in the 1990s and suffered from many animation and English double-backs of that era. It does not age as old as some other old shows on the list.
