With each passing day, Netflix users are increasing around the globe, all due to its extensive library and its efforts to keep expanding. Hence, countless series, movies, anime, games, and a lot more get added to its library each month, and with each new release, the excitement of the viewers shoot up in the sky.
We all have seen an increase in anime viewership in the last few years, and trust us when we say that the numbers have changed by a huge margin. And Netflix was one of the first to realize this upsurge and act on it. With that being said, Netflix US currently holds 218 titles in the anime genre, and it’s ever-expanding. This month too, Netflix is coming with several originals in the anime genre, some absolutely new, some adaptations, and some more.
Here’s the Netflix’s anime line-up for the month of June 2022:

The story is set in a war-torn future, where the superpowers are ready to wipe each other off the face of the world in an endeavor to unearth relics from an ancient civilization far more advanced than any present-day technology. Those relics are said to have some “power” that can make one far more powerful than ever imagined. Where the world wants to research those artifacts and unleash whatever powers they hold, one organization made it their mission to save that “power” source from the wrong hands, and the people who have taken it upon themselves to complete that mission are known as Spriggans.

The story is set in a dystopian world divided into four kingdoms that hold a seal each which keeps the God of Destruction at bay and people require magic to keep themselves safe from the beasts unleashed in the open.
