Anime has grown leaps and bounds on Netflix over the years — be it a movie or a television series. In general, anime has had a widespread cultural and aesthetic impact on how we have re-imagined the way filmmakers make movies based on popular comic books or manga. With the advent of this medium, although not in a significant way, the focus of online web streaming services has definitely shifted from keeping a minimal to a substantial collection of anime movies and television shows. For example, on an average, Netflix has been adding 4-5 anime movies and television shows each month in 2018, and by the end of December 2018, they are expected to have close to 40 anime and television shows; and apparently, the trend is supposed to continue in 2019 and 2020.
With that made clear, Netflix generally doesn’t disclose all that’s going to be on the table for the upcoming months, let alone the upcoming years. Press releases are only to communicate the tentative dates of what’s gonna come when, but that’s too uncertain. With the expertise available at hand, we’ve scanned the sources at our disposal and have some credible information on what’s going to be the scenario on anime flicks and television series. Here’s the list of upcoming new and renewed anime on Netflix that will be available for streaming in 2019 and 2020.
1. Godzilla Part 3: Hoshi Wo Kuu Mono (January 2019)
Already released in Japan in November 2018, the king of monsters is all set to rock everyone’s world yet again. The film will be titled ‘Godzilla: Hoshi Wo Kuu Mono’ and after the second instalment ‘Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle’, which came in recently, the third one is eagerly awaited. Set in the dystopian future, while the first instalment showcased humans fighting the formidable monster, the second one has Mechagodzilla up against the Houtua tribesmen. The word in the street is that the third instalment will feature even the more imposing King Ghidorah while Haruo is yet to come out of trouble.
2. Cannon Busters (March 2019)
Based on the book series of the same name, ‘Cannon Busters’ is the telltale of S.A.M., a friendship droid, set in the land of Gearbolt. The high-end S.A.M. is joined by a weary, outdated maintenance robot Casey and a fugitive Philly the Kid. The three of them are looking for S.A.M.’s best buddy who is the heir to a kingdom that is undergoing a siege. March 2019 seems too far away, doesn’t it?
