Netflix has one of the best anime libraries in the streaming game. Not only do they have a slew of original Japanese animation content, but a great number of third-party titles. This September, they’re getting a little bit of both. Plus, there’s good reason for anime fans to be excited about it. Let’s look at all of the anime coming to Netflix in September 2022. The most popular and anticipated titles as well as some lesser-known titles with amazing quality.
Jojo, Pokemon, & More
Undoubtedly the biggest thing that has already hit Netflix today, September 1st, is every episode of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean Part 2. Jojo’s is one of the strangest and most popular anime in the world right now. Fans have been hotly anticipating Part 2 of this current arc since Part 1 came out back in December of 2021. It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here as of today, and the community is already buzzing about it.
The next biggest name coming to Netflix in September is Pokemon. Pokemon: The Arceus Chronicles will hit the platform on the 23rd of this month and will feature 4 episodes. The special mini-series will feature Ash, Dawn, Goh, and Brock uncovering a Team Galactic plot that threatens to destroy the entire Sinnoh region. It will feature legendary pokemon like Heatran and, of course, the god-like Arceus.
On top of those two popular shows, Netflix also has an original anime film coming to the platform. It’s called Drifting Home and it’s coming to Netflix on the 16th of this month. We’ve done a whole write-up on the plot and people behind this interesting new movie in a separate article here at TV Shows Ace.
The final major anime release coming to Netflix in September is Bastard!!. Part 1 of the series has been out on the platform since June 30th. Now, Part 2 is set to release on the 15th of this month. It’s based on a popular manga that is impressively long-running, having begun publication back in 1988. It’s still seeing sporadic publication to this day.
The Future Of Netflix Anime
Netflix isn’t slowing down on their anime production any time soon. They’ve signed exclusive contracts with a number of Japanese animation studios recently. Drifting Home is coming from one of them, Studio Colorido, and there are a number of other projects in the pipeline. Many are coming from existing popular IP. These include the anime series for Tekken, Cyberpunk, and Castlevania. So it’s a good time to be a Netflix subscriber and anime fan, as there’s a lot more coming in the near future.
