The Fall 2021 anime season is just around the corner and Netflix is truly upping their licensing game. The past few weeks have been packed with announcements about upcoming anime that will stream exclusively on Netflix.
Netflix managed to snag some of the most anticipated titles of the year and, while that is not uncommon, it’s interesting that some of them will be weekly simulcasts. The news could be a sign of Netflix changing its release policy, which would be good news for overseas anime fans.
Let’s take a look at the full list of Netflix Fall 2021 anime exclusives and their schedules below.
Komi Can’t Communicate
Komi Can’t Communicate is a long-awaited anime adaptation of the manga with the same name. The anime begins airing on October 6 in Japan. Netflix will stream the first episode on October 7 in Japan, while the fans overseas will have to wait until October 21, after which the anime will release weekly.
The Way of the Househusband Part 2
The sequel to the popular anime is coming on October 7. Sadly, the anime will again only have 5 episodes, but all of them will be available at once.
Blue Period is another anime that is getting a worldwide release on Netflix shortly after Japan. The anime premieres on October 1 in Japan, although it will have an exclusive Netflix screening of episode 1 on September 25. The worldwide premiere is on October 9, and after that, the anime will release new episodes weekly.
