Rilakkuma and Kaoru (Season 1)

Release Date: April 19th

Similar to the influence that Hello Kitty had on Japan, Rilakkuma was created in the early 2000s by Aki Kondo and produced by the company San-X. Her creation came about when the company requested that its staff create one “cute” character a month. Aki Kondo yearned to own a pet, but because of her busy schedule, she couldn’t. Rilakkuma is the embodiment of that desire.

Rilakkuma is a food-loving little bear. He loves pancakes, rice, omelets, and pudding. He lives with his bear cub friend Korilakkuma and Karou’s (the owner of the apartment he lives in) pet Kiiroitori.

Selection Day (Part 2)

Release Date: April 22nd

Selection Day was one of the last Netflix Original series to air in 2018 and was a massive success. With the 2nd half arriving in April, many fans can’t wait to see how the story of the Kumar brothers concludes.

Brothers Radha and Manju have always had their destiny’s laid before them by their Cricket loving father. Training them to become the next pair of greatest Batsman, their father moves them to Mumbai where the brothers will compete for selection to play in the domestic leagues.

She-Ra and the Princess of Power (Season 2)

The first season of the reboot of She-Ra came out just before 2018 came to a close and thankfully, it’s been given a quick renewal and release date.

Sadly, you’ll only now be able to watch the Netflix Original series given the original She-Ra and He-Man series have both been removed.

7 Seeds (Season 1)

Release Date: April 2019

7 Seeds is an upcoming Netflix Original anime based on the manga of the same name by author Yumi Tamura.  It’s unknown how many episodes the first season has but we could potentially see 2 seasons of anime if they cover most of the source material. Considering that the Manga ran for 16 years with a total of 177 chapters, there is plenty for the anime to cover.

In the not too distant future, the world has a cataclysmic event that has seen all life on earth wiped off the face of the planet. Having foreseen this potential outcome the government selected 5 sets of seven young men and women and placed them into cryogenic sleep. Upon awakening, the remaining humans are placed into teams and thrust into the harsh new world.
