7 Netflix Animes You Should Absolutely Watch

August 1, 2021

Netflix animes are very underrated. Everyone goes on Netflix to watch all their favourite shows but forgets that there are some really good animes to binge-watch and get lost in. The next time you call your boo over to Netflix and chill, these are the Netflix animes you should watch:

1. Aggretsuko

Aggretsuko

Retsuko is a 25-year-old who hates her job as an accountant. Whenever her emotions reach boiling point, she goes to a karaoke bar and vents through death metal music. This anime is different and funny. You should totally watch it. Even IMDB gives it an 8.1 rating.

2.The Seven Deadly Sins

The Seven Deadly Sins

Yes, this show is as chaotic as the name and the picture we’ve used in this article. We put it at number 2 because we don’t want you to miss it.

3. Toradora!

Netflix animes Toradora!

This feel-good show is about Ryuji and Taiga—two extremely different type of people who form the most unlikely friendship ever.

4. My Hero Academia

Netflix animes My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero  Academia)

This show will have your emotions racing like crazy. It’s mainly about Izuki Midoriya, a boy born without any superpowers in a world where almost everyone has superpowers. In his heart, he’s a superhero, but he doesn’t have the powers to save people. Or does he?

5. One Punch Man

Netflix animes One-Punch Man

If you’re new to anime, this one should be easy to consume. Saitama is a bald guy who fights criminals for fun, but is also super bored of his job because he can defeat anyone with just one punch. In fact, this article says there are only 9 people in the history of fiction that can beat him.

6. Madoka Magica

Netflix animes Madoka Magica

If you want to watch something that will send you into a downward spiral of darkness, this is it. Thank us later.

7. Devilman Crybaby

Netflix animes Devilman Crybaby

Do you want to watch a show about people giving their souls to demons? This is the show for you.
