Netflix animes are very underrated. Everyone goes on Netflix to watch all their favourite shows but forgets that there are some really good animes to binge-watch and get lost in. The next time you call your boo over to Netflix and chill, these are the Netflix animes you should watch:

1. Aggretsuko


Retsuko is a 25-year-old who hates her job as an accountant. Whenever her emotions reach boiling point, she goes to a karaoke bar and vents through death metal music. This anime is different and funny. You should totally watch it. Even IMDB gives it an 8.1 rating.

2.The Seven Deadly Sins

This feel-good show is about Ryuji and Taiga—two extremely different type of people who form the most unlikely friendship ever.

4. My Hero Academia

This show will have your emotions racing like crazy. It’s mainly about Izuki Midoriya, a boy born without any superpowers in a world where almost everyone has superpowers. In his heart, he’s a superhero, but he doesn’t have the powers to save people. Or does he?

5. One Punch Man
