Netflix Just Announced a Million Anime Things

It has been a busy day at Netflix's anime division. The streaming service released a lot of information about its future anime projects. It also revealed the first concept art for the live-action Mobile Suit Gundam movie.


Here's why Yu Yu Hakusho is so important. Although the anime was not released in America until 2003 (where it was overshadowed heavily by Dragon Ball Z), it was huge in Japan when it aired in the early 1990s. The story is about Yusuke, a teenager delinquent who dies saving a child from being run over by a vehicle. However, he is revived to investigate supernatural activity by underworld. This requires many one-on-one battles.

Yu Yu Hakusho, a main pillar of the shonen series, manga and anime targeted at young teen boys, is featured in the Shonen Jump weekly comics anthology Shonen. He joins Dragon Ball Z and Naruto as well as One Piece and Bleach. Netflix already has a live-action One Piece movie adaptation and the rights to the live-action Bleach movie from Japan. Netflix clearly has a strong relationship with Shonen Jump publisher Shueisha. This raises the question: could a live-action Naruto TV show be possible? To be fair, the streaming service will be behind the new Yu Yu Hakusho series which is currently scheduled to air in December 2023.

The rest of Netflix's announcements for anime are minor. However, many anime fans should be excited about the news that the second season, along with the first, of 2011's anime Tiger & Bunny, will air in April 2022. It is about two superpowered friends in a fake New York City, where corporations sponsor heroes and make their feats public.

There are two spin-offs to Detective Conan, which is a popular television series that follows a young detective solving crimes, including grisly murders. Zero's Tea Time is the first. It features Rei Furuya (a second character) who is a police officer and also works undercover as part of a crime syndicate. The Culprit Hanagawa is the second comedy. It's based on the black silhouetted character in Detective Conan manga, which portrays unknown perpetrators. The trailer for the two films is here:

Grudge of Edinburgh is a new anime movie about the medieval fantasy The Seven Deadly Sins. It's based on the popular anime that is streaming on Netflix. This film is from Nakaba Suzuki, the original manga author. The trailer is available here.

Kakegurui- Compulsive Gambler is the lighthearted anime series that centers on a high school where gambling is a major part of social status. A prequel TV show is due to air in August 2022.


Here's a teaser of The Orbital Children, directed by Mitsuo Ito. This is his return to directing after 14 year. The six-part series will premiere on Netflix January 28. It also features an extremely confusing official synopsis. "The story starts in 2045 when AI has advanced to the point that anyone can travel into Space. Children from Earth and children born on the moon meet at the Japanese-built space station, "Anshin." But the Seven Poem decides their fate.

The trailer for Netflix's CG-animated Ultraman TV Series 2 is finally out. It will be available sometime next spring.

The first trailer for season 4 of Aggretsuko has arrived. It stars everyone's favorite rage-machine, and will be available on December 16.

A teaser for Kotaru Lives Alone is also available. It's based on Mami Tsumura's best-selling manga about a four year-old boy who lives alone. It's adorable, but not disturbing.

The premiere date was announced by Netflix for Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, another Shonen Jump series. It is subtitled Stone Ocean. The premiere of the first 12 episodes will be available on December 1. Another video

As I mentioned, it is a busy day.
