Netflix has teamed up with Nippon TV again for a new licensing deal that will add 13 anime series from the Japanese network to the streaming platform’s library. The new additions include a number of cult classic anime series with a large number of episodes, so there will be plenty of binges available as these licensed series develop.
Fans can look forward to the popular Hunter X Hunter, dark fantasy series like Claymore and Berserk, the long-running boxing saga Hajime no Ippo, and more as Netflix begins gradually adding these shows to its platform. While some of the series will have a more geographically limited release, the majority of these shows will air in more than 100 countries, including the US, Spain, Italy, and the United Arab Emirates during the licensing period.
Hunter X Hunter will arrive first on September 1 with a block of 38 episodes and will be followed by Ouran High School Host Club and Claymore on the same day. You can find the full list below and the overall episode count for each series below:

Anime has become a huge part of the Netflix library over the years. The streaming platform contains a mix of new and cult classic anime series and has even adapted several of them into live action, such as Death Note and Cowboy Bebop, with mixed results. Cowboy Bebop only lasted one season, Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer are directing a new Death Note adaptation, and a One Piece live-action show is coming soon.
Outside of Netflix, the anime season for 2022 is starting to heat up. A new season of Mob Psycho 100 is coming up, the first season of Chainsaw Man is coming soon to Crunchyroll, and the third season of One-Punch Man is officially in production.
