Over the past few years, Netflix has begun to invest a lot more in anime television and movies, likely picking up on the medium’s rising mainstream popularity. Some of the most successful Netflix Original anime have been “Blood of Zeus,” “Violet Evergarden,” and “Trese,” while the streaming platform also carries some classic favorites like “Attack on Titan” and “Neon Genesis Evangelion,” among others.
Going into 2022, Netflix plans to expand on this area of original projects even more, and there are quite a few interesting upcoming shows and movies to get excited about. The soccer-centered anime “Blue Lock,” about Japan’s search for the ultimate striker for the national soccer team, is scheduled to come out next year, as well as the long-awaited new season of “Tiger & Bunny,” with Season 1 airing all the way back in 2011 (Anime Collective). Along with that, new seasons of other Netflix anime like “Aggretsuko” Season 4 and “Ultraman” Season 2 will arrive soon as well.
