The Netflix library continues to expand and evolve, but unfortunately that also means we have to say goodbye to some popular anime titles. We’ll say goodbye to three popular anime series in May as they leave Netflix libraries around the world.
What anime TV shows are leaving Netflix?
A total of three popular anime series will leave Netflix in May 2022;
- Monthly Girls Nozaki Kun (1 season) – Departure on May 1, 2022
- Parasite: La Maxime (1 season) – Departure May 15, 2022
- Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas (1 season) – Departure May 15, 2022
Girls’ Monthly Nozaki Kun is available to stream on Netflix US from September 2020 and is currently available to stream in 10 other countries. The only region that keeps anime on Netflix is Japan.
Parasite: The Maxim is available to stream on Netflix US from September 2020, and is available to stream in 10 other countries. Only Netflix Japan will keep the anime.
Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas is available to stream on Netflix US from August 2020, but has been available to stream in those regions, such as the UK for almost four years. A total of 31 countries will have the anime removed from the library, and only Japan will retain the series.
Where can I then stream the animated series?
Monthly Girls Nozaki Kun, Parasite: The Maximand Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas can be found on Crunchyroll, but to stream all three you’ll need a paid subscription.
Will anime series return to Netflix?
There is still a chance that all three anime series will return to Netflix in the near future.
We might see the renewal of all three anime before they depart in May.
