Netflix has ventured into the world of anime once more, having secured a massive deal with the likes of Death Note and Hunter x Hunter coming to the streaming platform.

The popular streaming platform Netflix has just signed a deal with Nippon TV, Japan’s leading multiplatform entertainment powerhouse and owner of Hulu Japan.

This deal will mean that a large number of animes will now be coming to Netflix to stream non-exclusively around the world, and this number includes some big names.

This deal comes after two prior deals between the companies, with the hit reality TV show Old Enough (where young children are tasked with running errands) being the most popular show to come out of this deal.

Which animes will be released on Netflix soon?

A total of 13 animes will be coming to Netflix as a result of this deal.

While the dates of release haven’t been confirmed for every anime, we do know that three will be arriving on the platform on September 1: hit shonen series Hunter X Hunter (its first 38 episodes), fantasy epic Claymore, and romantic comedy Ouran High School Host Club.

The other upcoming titles, which are listed in order of release throughout September, include:

  • Death Note
  • Death Note: Relight 1
  • Death Note: Relight 2
  • From Me to You Season 1
  • From Me to You Season 2
  • Berserk
  • Parasyte – The Maxim –
  • Nana
  • Hajime no Ippo: The Fighting!
  • Monster

Akane Inoue, Head of Anime Sales and Licensing and International Business Development for Nippon TV stated to Anime News Network: “For many years, anime has been a driving force at Nippon TV where we have been producing hit anime titles such as Hunter X Hunter, Death Note, and many more.

“With anime continuing to surge in popularity around the world, the timing could not be better for this exciting partnership with Netflix. I have no doubt anime fans will be talking about these titles the world over.”
