The Netflix library continues to expand and evolve, but sadly, this also means we have to say goodbye to some popular anime titles. We’ll be saying goodbye to three popular anime shows in May as they leave the Netflix libraries globally.

Which anime TV shows are leaving Netflix?

Parasyte: The Maxim has been available to stream on Netflix US since September 2020, and is available to stream in 10 other countries. Only Netflix Japan will keep the anime.

Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas has been available to stream on Netflix US since August 2020, but has been available to stream in such regions, like the UK for almost four years. In total, 31 countries will see the anime removed from the library, and only Japan will keep the series.


Where will I be able to stream the anime shows next?

Monthly Girls Nozaki Kun, Parasyte: The Maxim, and Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas can be found on Crunchyroll, but to stream all three you will need a paid subscription.
