In 2021, Netflix released a slew of new anime. Among them, we present three popular anime that have recently or will be released for the rest of December.
1. Super Crooks
Super Crooks is a superhero anime series based on Mark Millar’s and Leinil Francis Yu’s comic book series of the same name. On November 25, 2021, Netflix released the 13-episode series globally. The Super Crooks anime series was directed by Motonobu Hori.
Why do anime fans enjoy Super Crooks?
The appeal of Super Crooks is that it is a not-so-common genre “Heist,” and the anime features distinctive characters. The characters were well humanized that anime viewers felt as though they were watching a Marvel or DC movie. Another aspect of the anime’s attraction is its music. The opening song, “ALPHA – TOWA TEI with Taprikk Sweezee,” immediately captures the attention of the audience.
2. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean is an anime adaptation of Hirohiko Araki‘s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure manga’s sixth chapter. The anime series was directed by David Production. Netflix released the first 12 episodes of the anime on December 1, 2021.
What do anime fans like about JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean?
Part 6 of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series, “Stone Ocean,” was evaluated to be difficult to animate due to its unique esoteric atmosphere, yet it is acknowledged to have been turned into a wonderful anime. It follows the original plot and art closely, and it accurately portrays the protagonist, Jolyne Cujoh. Jolyne grows from a lonely little girl with father issues to a tough lady who can easily hold her own in a battle.
3. Shaman King Season 1 Part 2
The anime series Shaman King 2021 is based on Hiroyuki Takei‘s manga series of the same name. The anime is created by Japan’s Bridge studio, and the first 13 episodes of season 1 were published by Netflix in August 2021. Season 1 Part 2 will premiere on December 9, 2021.
What do anime fans think of Shaman King?
The Shaman King was already well-known as an anime series that debuted in 2001, and a remake was released nearly 20 years later. Some of the anime fans think the producer of the Shaman King 2021 managed to bring back a lot of the 2001 adaptation’s legacy voice cast and songs. Furthermore, the art has been improved to reflect the modern style, and the pace of the story has been accelerated compared to the previous version.
