The 5 best Japanese anime in English with the subtitles on Netflix


Are you looking for an awesome Japanese anime in English with the subtitles? For native English speakers who really like Japanese anime but are not good at the language, I’d like to introduce 5 anime series which are quite popular among young generation in Japan. Now you just need to login to Netflix.


Minimum plan is just $8 (¥800) a month for unlimited streaming

I’m not a shill for Netflix but it’s a smart way that we could enjoy staying at home due to COVID-19. Netflix basically provides other languages with the subtitles and I sometimes recommend this function to Japanese learners who are also interested in Japanese anime, TV series, or film. Anyway, look over 5 anime below with the stories and choose the good one for you.

Tokyo Ghoul

Dark fantasy in an alternate reality where ghouls, creatures that look like normal people but can only survive by eating human flesh, live amongst the human population in secrecy, hiding their true nature in order to evade pursuit from the authorities. Ghouls have powers including enhanced strength and regenerative abilities.

Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler

Gambling in Hyakkaou Private Academy, a high-class elite school housing the children of Japan’s most wealthy and influential people and with many future leaders and professionals among the student body. However, the student hierarchy in this school is not determined by academic performance or athletic ability, but rather by gambling. Students are ranked by their monetary contributions to the student council.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure 

Battle adventure on the Joestar family, whose mainline descendants possess a star-shaped birthmark above their left shoulder blade and a name that can be abbreviated to the titular JoJo. The first part takes place within a single continuity whose generational conflict stems from the rivalry between Jonathan Joestar and Dio Brando, while the second part takes place in an alternate universe where the Joestar family tree is heavily altered.

Fairy Tale

Fantasy among numerous guilds where wizards apply their magic for paid job requests. Natsu Dragneel, a dragon slayer wizard from the Fairy Tail guild, explores the Kingdom of Fiore in search of his missing adoptive father, the dragon Igneel. He forms a team with great wizards during his journey to embark on numerous missions together, which include subduing criminals, illegal dark guilds, and ancient Etherious demons created by Zeref, an immortal dark wizard.

7 Seeds

Science fiction to survive on the earth following astronomers predict that the earth will be hit by a meteorite. The world leaders meet to develop a plan for human survival called the Seven Seeds project, and each country agrees to preserve numbers of healthy young people through cryogenics, which will allow them to survive the devastation of the impact. After a computer determines that Earth is once again safe for human life, it will revive each group.

Have you decided what to watch? Anime is essential for Japanese kids to grow up and anybody should have favorite one. My 3 best are Dragon Ball, Fist of the North Star, and Captain Tsubasa, and I sometimes go to a manga cafe to read them in silence. Thanks for reading to the end, and enjoy watching anime at home!
