Top 10 Netflix Exclusive Anime

Sheesh, is there nothing that Netflix doesn’t control these days?
Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today, we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Netflix Exclusive Anime.
Just as you might have guessed, we’re only counting anime you can only find on Netflix now and in the near future. In order to make the cut, they have to be either licensed by or produced by Netflix – so shows that are available on other platforms won’t be included. Sorry Kamina.

#10: “Kuromukuro” (2016-)

We imagine Netflix must have just looked at the premise for the show and gone “yep, that’s anime in a nutshell” A samurai from centuries past awaken in modern Japan, only to immediately have to deal with invading alien and a giant robot. Yep, it’s that kind of show. If you are looking to binge-watch some mindless action, then this series you’ll get it in spades, and maybe even get in a few laughs from its fish-out-of-water storyline.We’ll give you a pass on this one Netflix, but you had better improve your choice in Mecha shows in the near future!

#9: “Blame!” (2017)

Have you been feeling too happy lately? In dire need of a kick to the feels? Well how about a dystopian flick about the eradication of mankind by its own creations? Hunted down by a defense system of their own making, two lost souls with nothing left to use make one last attempt to restoring the world. Too bad there’s a million creepy-as-hell automatons standing between them and their goal. If there’s one thing anime has perfected over the years, it’s portraying a sense of sheer hopelessness.

#8: “Magi: Adventures of Sinbad” (2016)

Who was Sinbad before he rose up to become king? The answer; one of the most entertaining scoundrels you’re likely to come across. While the Aladdin and Alibaba’s adventures were also nothing to scoff at and did a wonderful job of introducing us to this fantastical land, Sinbad is just too much fun! As par of the course of the Magi series, this origin story not only boasts plenty of emotionally charged moments, but for all intents and purposes it’s just a great big action romp that chronicles the life of one of the franchise’s favourite sons.

#7: “Ajin: Demi-Human” (2016)

What would you do if you discovered that you were practically immortal? Well, in the case of student Kei Nagai, you’d run like hell to avoid becoming a government experiment. After discovering that he is the furthest thing from human, he finds himself unwilling thrown into a conflict between his species and the cruel government organisation that wishes to use all Aijin for their own twisted motives. Love seeing the worst of what humanity has to offer? Netflix has got you covered.

#6: “Fate/Apocrypha” (2017)


The Fate series is...complex to say the least. So instead of taking you through a dedicated powerpoint presentation, Netflix decided to treat fans and newcomers alike to this latest iteration. One that stands on its own as a contained story that requires no prior viewing, and instead dedicates its run time to busting out an endless slew of astoundingly animated battles. With two warring sides, plenty of characters to attach yourselves to (cough Rider of Black cough) Apocrypha is definitely one fantasy epic to check out.


#5: “GANTZ: O” (2016)

For those that have a special place in their hearts for the original series, or for casual anime viewers who just want to see heads role, then this adaptation is right up your alley. Taking on the Osaka Arc, we see the likes of Kato and a new team encounter some of the most violent and imposing aliens, ever. Which is saying a lot for Gantz. The animation style makes each kill pretty hard to watch, and trust us, you are going to see a lot of bodies torn to pieces in this flick. Though it might be worth it to see that one mecha suit...

#4: “Kakegurui” (2017)

Sensual, sociopathic and splendid; that’s Yumeko Jabami for you.In a school where gambling determines social status, winning offers you a life of luxury while losing literally turns you into a slave. Then Yumeko turns up and everything is thrown on its head. With a love and addiction to gambling that is borderline orgasmic, she proceeds to challenge the highest ranking members of the school, just for the thrill of it. Be warned, if you bet against her, be prepared to experience Yumeko’s madness up close

#3: “Knights of Sidonia” (2014-)

Granted, the animation can be hit and miss at times, especially when you’re spending time with our admittedly mediocre cast. But where this series really excels is with the Guana, the alien creatures that literally broke the Earth in half and sent humanity fleeing into the darkness of space. With a growing sense of isolation and desperation, this gritty take on the mecha vs alien trope serves as a much needed refresher as to why you should fear what comes from the stars. Also they’re gross as all hell.

#2: “Little Witch Academia” (2017-)

Stop what you're doing and binge-watch this show right now! While many newcomers will cry out “Harry Potter” at first glance, the witches of Luna Nova Academy are very much their own entity. As wannabe sorceress Akko and her dysfunctional friends try to navigate their way through their magical semester, an endless amount of charm, legit laughter and heartfelt encounters await them (and us) along the way. To say this series casts a spell on all who watch it would be a huge understatement. Plus, its worth watching for Diana’s swagger alone.

#1: “Neo Yokio” (2017)


Jaden Smith’s revolutionary take on the medium is a monumental achievement, possible the greatest in all of human history. By meshing together the likes of a Toblerone and - ok no fuck that.

#1: “The Seven Deadly Sins” (2014-)


Layered with a cast of quirky yet badass protagonists, this show is fantasy action at its best! In order to save the kingdom that once shunned them from a deep-rooted corruption, seven knights all based on the deadly sins, take up arms and kick a serious amount of ass along the way. The banter is on point, the fight scenes have never heard of the word subtlety, and every word from Ban’s mouth is sheer gold. Wrath, Greed, Sloth, Pride, Lust, Envy and Gluttony have never looked so good!
