Netflix Original Anime Shows That Are Kicking Japanese Anime Out Of The Race

When Netflix decided to make original movies and shows, everyone wasn’t really keen on that idea, but they were definitely proved wrong. Not only did Netflix make some amazing movies and series which could easily give other films and series a run for their money.

But then Netflix also tried their hands at some other genres and countries. And they did an equally great job. Anime is such a genre that started getting a great fanbase recently. Like we agree there have been One piece and Naruto fans for decades but then not everyone has been a fan since this long. But Netflix is also killing the genre with their anime series! Here are some great ones you must not miss.
