Netflix is beefing up its lineup of anime content following a new partnership with Nippon TV. This new partnership sees Hunter x Hunter, Death Note, and other anime coming to Netflix sometime soon.

The new distribution deal between Netflix and Nippon TV was announced recently, and it is for the streaming rights of 13 anime titles (via The Hollywood Reporter).

On September 1, the first batch of these 13 anime will be released on Netflix, including Hunter x Hunter, Ouran High School Host Club, and Claymore.

Here is the full list of anime confirmed to release on Netflix soon:

  • Hunter x Hunter (2011)
  • Ouran High School Host Club
  • Claymore
  • Death Note
  • Death Note: Relight 1
  • Death Note: Relight 2
  • From Me To You
  • From Me To You Season 2
  • Berserk (1997)
  • Parasyte: The Maxim
  • Nana
  • Hajime No Ippo: The Fighting!
  • Monster

Take note that only the first 38 episodes of Hunter x Hunter will be released on Netflix in 104 countries, though there’s no word yet on when the rest of the episodes will release on the platform.

While the anime is already streaming in select countries worldwide, the new deal will give more people access to the show. Specifically, all episodes of the 2011 series are available in countries such as the US and France.

Other shows on the list are also available for streaming in a limited number of countries even before this new streaming deal. These shows include Death Note and Ouran High School Host Club (via

This new deal is non-exclusive, meaning the titles that are part of the deal won’t become Netflix exclusives. This is unlike other anime movies and shows where Netflix holds exclusive streaming rights.

For example, TV anime like Kakegurui, Violet Evergarden, and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean are all Netflix streaming exclusives. When you check these titles on Netflix, they’ll have the “N” logo on the top left corner.

Aside from adding more anime titles to its library, Netflix is also betting big on live-action anime adaptations. For instance, the live-action One Piece adaptation will be given the Stranger Things promotion treatment when it nears release.

So far, though, the live-action strategy might not be working for all shows. For instance, last year’s Cowboy Bebop series was axed after just one season.

Currently, there’s no word yet on how long these Nippon TV titles will be available for streaming on Netflix.
