In the criminal underworld, Tatsu was once a legendary member of the Yazuka, who once defeated a rival gang single-handedly while only equipped with a lead pipe. The “Immortal Tatsu” strikes fear into the hearts and minds of police officers and criminals alike. Soon after disappearing, Tatsu resurfaces, now trying to make an honest living as a househusband to his wife Miku. Becoming a househusband poses a new challenge for Tatsu as he must contend with kitchen mishaps and dreaded supermarket sales.

Over the past year, Netflix has made a significant effort to release weekly anime titles as soon as possible after their Japanese broadcast. The streaming service is now taking it a step further by simulcasting the next season of Vinland Saga.

The story of Vinland Saga takes place at the height of the Viking’s power in Europe, chronicling the rise of King Cnut the Great’s ascendency to the English throne, and his North Sea Empire. Meanwhile, young Thorfinn, an Icelandic explorer, serves under a group of mercenaries that are responsible for the murder of his father, for the sole purpose of enacting his revenge against them. But Thorfinn’s true dream is to sail across the sea and find the paradise of Vinland.

Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre (Season 1) N

Genre: Horror | Runtime: TBA
Cast: Romi Park, Yûki Kaji, Tomokazu Sugita, Takahiro Sakurai, Hiro Shimono
Netflix Release Date: January 18th, 2023

One of Japan’s greatest horror manga authors, Junji Ito, is having some of his most famous work adapted into an anime anthology on Netflix.

The genius Junji Ito has long been at the forefront of the Japanese horror manga world. Featuring a selection of 20 macabre masterpieces brimming with his original worldview and fascinating characters drawn in his stunning style, including popular titles such as “Hanging Balloon” and fan-favorite characters Tomie and Soichi, this animated series will totally immerse viewers in the maniacal charm of Junji Ito.

Recrod of Ragnarok (Season 2) N

Seasons: 2 | Episodes: 22
Genre: Action, Adventure | Runtime: 24 Minutes
Cast: Miyuki Sawashiro, Tomoyo Kurosawa, Yukihiro Nozuyama, Jun’ichi Suwabe, Wataru Takagi

Fans of the manga weren’t overly impressed by the animation of the first season, however, with Yumeta Company taking over the animation of the second season, hopefully, there will be a significant rise in quality. The first ten episodes will be available upon release, with more episodes to be released at a later date.

With the gods deciding that the fate of humanity rests in their complete annihilation, they are given one last chance to prove their worth before the gods. Engaging in a battle of Ragnarok, 13 humans from history are brought before the gods to engage in duels to the death. Humanity requires seven wins to survive so to even the odds combatants are given a valkyrie, each tailored into a powerful weapon capable of allowing humans to fight the gods.
