Over the coming weeks, the Netflix streaming service will no longer offer the anime series Naruto and two Bleach franchise films.
It’s quite shocking that Netflix is removers too many popular and new shows on short notice. Below you will get the list of anime that will leave Netflix.
- Cyberpunk: Edgerunners,
- Uncle From Another World
- Bastard!!: Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy
- Drifting Home
All these listed anime will leave Netflix on October 14. The reason for this change is not unveiled yet, but the news is confirmed.
After October 31, viewers won’t be able to stream the venerable ninja anime series’ Seasons 1 through 9. Anime News Network first reported this. After October 14, only Bleach the Movie: Fade to Black and Bleach the Movie: Hell Verse will remain on the platform; the mainline Bleach series has already left.
While Naruto and Bleach will soon leave Netflix, much new anime have just made their debuts there, including Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, Uncle From Another World, and Bastard!! : Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy. The newest anime film from Studio Colorido (Burn The Witch), Drifting Home, made its online streaming debut earlier this month. The film follows a group of kids who wind up stranded at sea in an apartment building and try to find shelter and assistance.
Seventy-two volumes of the Naruto series by mangaka Masashi Kishimoto were published in Shueisha’s Weekly Shnen Jump between 1999 and 2014. As he aspires to take charge of his village, the narrative follows the titular orange-clad ninja. Naruto, which originally had 220 episodes between 2002 and 2007, and Naruto Shippuden, which initially had 500 episodes between 2007 and 2017, were both anime series created by Studio Pierrot from Kishimoto’s manga.
Between 2001 and 2016, Weekly Shnen Jump ran serializations of Tite Kubo’s Bleach manga series. The story of the 74-volume manga centers on the adventures of Ichigo Kurosaki, a high school dropout with the gift of seeing ghosts. Kubo’s story was also adapted by Pierrot, who created an anime that ran for 366 episodes from 2004 to 2014.
