Netflix has been one of the biggest streaming services today. A variety of award-winning shows, from movies to TV series to anime (aside from Crunchyroll), are being shown on this platform. As one of the most trusted streaming services, they often give wide options of shows to watch in an account. With the weekend fast approaching, have you decided on what to watch yet?
If you are an anime and sci-fi lover at the same time, surely you have watched lots of it including Neon Genesis Evangelion. If you have loved it, here are the top 3 sci-fi anime you can watch on Netflix according to MSN.
3 Sci-Fi Anime to watch
- Sword Art Online
Sword Art Online, the TV version of the hugely successful comic book series, rounds off the list.
There are two Netflix series available – both are, of course, great – and the basic premise is really on brand, given that it aired in 2012.
Sword Art Online, a virtual reality massively multiplayer online role-playing game (VRMMORPG) set in the year 2022, has been released, allowing individuals to control their avatars with their bodies.
Of course, a sinister twist develops, and the story progresses from there.
Akira, released in 1988, is widely regarded as one of the best anime films ever made, and it is still available in UK theaters today.
The tale follows biker gang leader Shtar Kaneda and his boyhood friend Tetsuo Shima, who has tremendous telekinetic powers and is set in 2019, which is cool in and of itself.
- Cowboy Bebop
Everything in this neo-noir sci-fi epic is great, from the amazing motion graphics to the characters and even the English dubbing, which adopts the Ghibli style of being more than an afterthought. (Of course, purists will argue that you should just read the subtitles, which is understandable.)
There is a reason Netflix invested so much money to develop a live-action version after it was a critical and commercial success in Japan and subsequently globally (to then cancel it after one season).
