Netflix and Nippon TV have entered into a partnership, and as a result, the streaming service will be adding 13 new anime titles to its lineup. While most titles will be added at a later, unspecified date (or dates), 3 of them will be coming very soon. The first 38 episodes of Hunter x Hunter, all 26 episodes of Ouran High School Host Club, and all 26 episodes of Claymore will begin streaming on September 1, 2022. [Thanks, ANN!]
The complete list of titles coming to Netflix is as follows. They are listed in the order in which Netflix will stream them.
- Hunter x Hunter
- Ouran High School Host Club
- Death Note
- Death Note Relight – Visions of a God
- Death Note Relight 2 – L’s Successors
- From Me to You
- From Me to You 2nd Season
- Berserk (1997)
- Parasyte ~the maxim~
- Hajime no Ippo: The Fighting!
Hunter x Hunter will be available to stream in 104 countries upon the addition of its first 38 episodes. The remaining 110 episodes will be added sometime in the future. Additionally, Ouran High School Host Club will be available in 190 countries, Claymore in 136 countries, and the 3 Death Note titles in 14 countries. Information on the number of countries the other 7 titles will be available to stream in was not given, though some have appeared in Netflix’s anime rotation previously in certain regions.
Among the titles being added, only Hunter x Hunter, Berserk, and Hajime no Ippo still have their original manga series ongoing. Notably, Hunter x Hunter will be releasing new chapters after a more than 3-and-a-half-year hiatus, and Berserk is continuing following creator Kentaro Miura’s death. Hajime no Ippo, on the other hand, has been releasing new chapters in Weekly Shonen Magazine with relative consistency since 1989.
Netflix will begin adding its 13 new anime titles on September 1, 2022, with Hunter x Hunter, Ouran High School Host Club, and Claymore. The other 10 titles will be added later, though it is not known precisely when.
