When it comes to anime, streaming has become the name of the game. The massive industry relies on sites like Crunchyroll and Funimation to show off series to international fans, but Netflix’s uptake on the medium has been a slow one. Recently, the site wowed audiences with its anime-esque take on Castlevania, but that is not the only project Netflix is backing.
In fact, Netflix has more than a dozen other anime projects spinning in their wheelhouse.
Earlier today, news broke that the entertainment company is moving forward with 13 new anime projects. Netflix announced each title during a press event in Tokyo as the site outlined its release schedule for a dozen television series and a feature film. The slate is expected to span across a couple years as Netflix pushes to become a major name in anime production.

If you are a fan of the Fate/Stay franchise, then you likely knew that Fate/Apocrypha would be the next entry into the series. However, thanks to Netflix, fans have learned just how they can watch the spin-off. The streaming site will air Fate/Apocrypha simultaneously with its Japanese, so fans around the world can keep up with its magical storyline.
Oceans 11 has nothing on Netflix’s anime gamble. Kakegurui may look like another high school anime from the outside, but it is anything but. The series is set in an academy that is dedicated to teaching sharp-minded students the art of casino and parlor games.
Love sports? Then Baki is just the anime you’ve been waiting for. The Netflix series is an adaptation of Keisuke Itagaki’s Baki the Grappler, a manga centered around no-rules brawling. The story follows a young man who wants to become the world’s strongest fighter, so he trains by brawling with prisoners sitting over on death row.
