Netflix’s best anime series you can watch right now in November 2022
With the growing divide between twin cities Piltover and Zaun, two sisters find themselves on rival sides of the war. With the clash of magic technologies and mixed ideas, driven by divided principals, pushing the conflict towards a breaking point.
Arcane is flat-out nothing short of a masterpiece in my eyes, and I know that’s hefty praise to deliver to any piece of entertainment. But, I can truly say that even saying this might be underselling it.
Using the deeply rich lore of the famed MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena), League of Legends. These characters are fleshed out even further, revealing their pasts filled with tragedy and complexities that drive an outstanding narrative.
Additionaly, the voice-acting performances delivered by Hailee Steinfield (Vi) and Ella Purnell (Jinx) as the estranged sisters are superb. With their relationship serving as the anchor for most of the series’ plot, and the payoff to their story is downright worth it.
Do yourself a favor…
No, do yourself and a friend…
Wait.. scratch that… go round up your entire social circle and sit them down to watch this series. It’s that good and you won’t be disappointed.

Set In a futuristic dystopia, in the heart of Night City. A cyber haven overrun by corruption, crime, and cybernetic implants.
A talented street kid named David decides to live out his life as an “edgerunner” following the loss of his former life due to a drive-by shooting.
His new life finds him on the wrong side of the law as a high-tech, black-market mercenary also known as a “cyberpunk.”
If people didn’t believe the hype for how great this series delivered, then let me frame it from the perspective of a lifelong gamer.
It managed to take the December 2020 launch disaster of Cyberpunk 2077, regarded by many as one of the worst gaming launches of that magnitude in recent history.
And upon Cyberpunk: Edgerunners release, it resurrected the player base to achieve its highest concurrent Steam player numbers since its launch days later.
If the anime is good enough to salvage one of the biggest gaming blemishes to date into a redemption story. It’s good enough to make this list twice over.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba
When a family is attacked by demons, only two members end up surviving the incident. Tanjiro and his sister, Nezuko.
Tanjiro takes up arms and sets out to become a slayer of demons to avenge his family and cure his sister.
Demon Slayer made a massive splash in the anime world with its high-paced combat scenes and extraordinary art style. But, under the bells and whistles is where this manga-adapted story shines most.
Dealing with the main themes presented throughout the story of loss, hope, and perseverance.
These themes are expertly weaved into the series and handled exceptionally well, making the series’ characters beloved worldwide. Providing another example of why anime is such a vastly successful genre, that succeeds in providing stories that deliver life lessons through engaging and often fantastical stories.

Avatar: The Last Airbender (2005)
A young boy reawakens to undertake a dangerous mystic quest in a war-torn world divided between four nations each representing a different element of nature.
By journeying through each nation and acclimating himself to the many styles of elemental bending, he will fulfill his destiny as the Avatar, the master of all four elements.
While many have debated whether Avatar can even be considered an anime, or just a children’s cartoon, over the years. Regardless of which side of the line you find yourself on. One thing that is never debated is how well-received and critically acclaimed the series is.
Such is the success of this original series that it has spawned a follow-up sequel series (The Legend of Korra), a live-action movie (We don’t speak about this), and a new animated film in the works soon.
Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the greatest animated stories out there and checks the boxes on so many themes that make a great show and in particular a great anime show. And I’m happy to see this franchise still getting the love it deserves in the present day.
