Netflix is quite simply the most popular streaming services of our times. Many of the best series and movies are available on it. Netflix has now even ventured into producing anime acknowledging its immense popularity. With that said today we are going to look at the best anime for adults that are available on the streaming service. Please keep in mind that we have restricted ourselves to just anime that are r-rated and mature. These are not Hentai. Let’s also be clear that just because these movies on this list have sexual content and sometimes graphic nudity doesn’t necessarily mean they are not good. Here again, the list of really good adult anime series on Netflix.
10. Baki (2018)
Look, I have seen the earlier ‘Baki’ arcs and they were entertaining. It is a typical shounen manga about a teenager by the name of Baki Hanma who wants to be the best fighter in the entire world But to get that title he needs to work extra hard since the one who currently holds the title is his own dad Yujiro Hanma. Though I am not such a fan of the latest arc of the franchise it is the only one on Netflix. After watching it I think it is entertaining enough to be on this list but if you are a fan of ‘Baki: The Grappler’ and other stuff from over two decades ago then you will feel that this is a downgrade. The animation is better than the previous arcs though. There are a total of 26 episodes in this Original Net Animation (yup, it does not follow the manga), with each episode being 24 minutes in length. In this series too wee see Baki training tirelessly to become a better version of himself to become the strongest fighter in the world. But his fame brings in some unwanted visitors who want to test his skills. These are five of the most dangerous criminals in the world who find their life boring because no one can defeat them. So, they come to fight Baki. So, get ready for an action-filled anime where Baki and his friends fight against the most dangerous criminals on Earth.
9. Ajin (2016)
The one thing that will keep on pecking your mind while watching ‘Ajin’ is ‘Tokyo Ghoul’. Giving the creators the benefit of doubt (although one shouldn’t) let’s just say that they did not intend the show to be like the hit series but there are way too many similarities to ignore this fact. One of the main reasons to watch the show is because of the protagonist Kei Nagai. He is not your everyday shounen protagonist who is flawed but has a heart of gold. But rather he is the ‘D’ word for male genitalia (yup, censorship). Why should that make it interesting? Well, because it breaks the stereotype and gives you a different feel than most anime in this genre. Our protagonist does things only if they somehow benefit him. The story takes place in a world where immortal humans are present. the first appearance of such beings was in Africa. They are labeled Ajin and are considered dangerous since they could use their powers for evil purposes. They are to be arrested and taken under custody on sight. Kei Nagai is a student studying to be a doctor. But he has no idea about Ajin. So, when he survives a fatal accident he could not connect the dots. But later when he finds out that he too is an Ajin he goes on the run. It seems that the entire world is out there to get him. But it seems that many Ajins are much closer to him than he initially thought.
