There was a certain genre of T.V. show with which, at a time, I wasn’t very much familiar with, and it was Anime. I had heard about it from my friends; some of them were regular viewers of this, and would get disappointment at my unwillingness to understand that how amazing the shows in this genre are – how out of the world and unrealistic.
Eventually, I decided to warm my cup of tea and watch a show. I put the forward to my friends, who immediately agreed, and I was soon pebbled with a bunch of names. After some discussion, the shows I was to watch was decided, and I was provided with the copies on my hard drive. After watching the first show, I realized that it wasn’t too bad after all, and would suit a particular type of audience, if not all.
Best Anime on Netflix
Now, this was some months ago before Netflix was launched in India (as I live in India). Now that Netflix is launched, it is much easier to stream a great many numbers of shows online. So with that, for those who care, here I present to you, with my experience and research, a list of best anime on Netflix.
- Psycho Pass
Psycho Pass could be seen as a good mixture of Minority Report and Blade Runner. It boasts of a dystopian world, around the government, a technocratic regime presided by the strange ‘Sibyl System’. Thoughts that are questioning, or distressing, could land the thinkers in the jail, and if the situation is worse, the convicted would just be executed on the spot. Well, not a very comfortable world to live in. Also, does it a bell? IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH!
- Sword Art Online
This anime, evolved from the manga, is seeing a boom after virtual reality has become a reality. It is a story about the virtual reality MMORPG, which goes down the strange path. As the game starts, the players, rather, unfortunately, realise that they are stuck into the world of the game; any efforts to go out would see their brains scrambled. The characterization of the game is great and discovers many aspects around a character. Yes, this is the reason it’s on our list of best anime for Netflix.
- Tokyo Ghoul
Ghosts and Tokyo – a strange combination. Yes, they look very much like you, sound like you too, but the only way they can survive is feasting on your flesh. In this show, the people in Tokyo live beside, as neighbors, with the flesh-eating ghouls in Tokyo. It could be well said that Tokyo Ghoul is a rather emotional anime, as it explores the emotional aspects of the central characters well; the central character is Kaneki. He, the poor fellow, is himself in a mix, as he is compelled to participate actively in the doings of the society because of an organ transplant. He has to survive with his consciousness by only eating the flesh of the fellow beings he lives with. Now, that’s something.

To explore anime is fascinating. And I would not like to force a long list on you. So I decided to keep it short and simple. I sincerely hope that the names put up here help you to explore the different dimensions of anime, and if you happen to like it, you may just want to go out online and explore a longer list, or you could just as well head over to Netflix and browse the list there.
So we are done with the list of best anime on Netflix. If you have any suggestions, make sure that you add them in the comments box. Also, if you feel that there are ways in which we can make this article or blog better, let us know that too. We appreciate your response.
