Anime immerses viewers in a fascinating universe with heroes that have supernatural powers and as powerful villains, too, guaranteeing lots of action and adventures, demons and different creatures and whatnot and unarguably a good storyline.
The main drawback to anime on Netflix is that some of the series don’t have all the seasons or episodes released on the platform, even though they’re available online otherwise or have been released at least. However, Netflix has a wide variety of anime in different genres. Here we recommend the top seven anime series on Netflix that everyone — newbies or seasoned viewers — should check out.
