Last week, we first saw the trailer for the upcoming adaptation of the hit Filipino comics “Trese” on Netflix! It sure is exciting and Filipino fans are extremely proud and hyped to see it. However, it won’t be available until June 11. So, while waiting, here are the other anime on Netflix that I enjoyed and I am pretty sure you would too!
If you grew up playing Konami’s Castlevania on your gaming console, then you would fall with Netflix’s gritty adaptation of the game series. The story revolves around Dracula and his plans to bring chaos in Wallachia. However, a group of people won’t let him get his way.
For blood, monsters, and some philosophical musings, catch Castlevania. Four seasons of it are now on the streaming platform!
- Demon Slayer
One of the best animes of the recent times and there is only one season, so far. Demon Slayer or Kimetsu no Yaiba follows the story of Tanjiro as he tries to defeat Muzan (the demon leader) and protect his sister Nezuko. Sounds simple but don’t be deceived. The series explore than that and introduces us to colorful characters along the way.
Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, a movie that bridges season 1 and the upcoming season 2, is now out but not yet available on any streaming platform.
- The Way of the Househusband
The manga following the story of an ex-yakuza who is trying to adapt to his new life as a househusband is both whimsical and…odd. The Netflix adaptation is technically not an anime but more of a moving manga. The fresh take on its animation style got most people weirded out. However, it was the way how the creator intended it to be.
For a quick watch of a light series, make sure to watch The Way of the Househusband.
- Attack on Titan
Unless you have been living under the rock in the past few years, Attack on Titan is now one of the most talked about anime in the whole world! If giant humanoids devouring humans is your thing then there is no way you are going to miss this. On top of this is the great clashing of ideologies between characters without getting preachy.
Attack on Titan: The Final Season is now on Netflix and the second half of the final season is set to premiere in Winter 2021.
- Love, Death, and Robots
Alright, technically, this is not an anime. But some of the episodes in this anthology embraced the anime-style. So, for some great breathtaking visuals and out of the box narratives, Love, Death and Robots is the perfect series for you. Season 2 recently arrived and it delivered just as much!
These recommendations should fill up the hunger for the upcoming adaptation of Trese. So, while we’re at it, here is the trailer. In which language are you going to watch it first: English, Filipino, or Japanese?
