Anime fans, assemble! It seems like it’s been a busy year for Netflix when it comes to anime releases because from classic episodes of Pokemon to metal animes like Black Butler, everything is present in Netflix’s library.
In case you’ve missed it, we’ve gathered the six best anime series you can watch on Netflix this September.
Best anime to watch in September:
1. Little Witch Academia
Directed by Yoh Yoshinari, Little Witch Academia is one of the most underrated anime series to be watched on Netflix. It follows the life of Atsuko Kagari, who wants to be a witch like her idol. However, the problem is that she belongs to a non-magical background. Somehow, she manages to get admission into Luna Nova Magical Academy, which leads to a series of lighthearted and funny circumstances in her life. If you’re looking for a feel-good movie, then this is the one.
2. Hi Score Girl
If you’re looking out for a coming-of-age story tinged with some irony and sly life lessons, Hi Score Girl is your fit. It recounts the story of a sixth-grade gamer, Haruo Yaguchi, who finds in his classmate Akira Oono his ultimate nemesis. Akira Oono is the epitome of perfectionism, and their unusual bond over vintage video games brings them closer and deals with the stress and anxiety that is heralded by daily living.
Ironically, it’s only when you meet other people in your life that you realize who you are. If you’re inclined towards something like that, do watch Hi Score Girl.
3. Record of Ragnarok
If you have seen The Seven Deadly Sins or are just obsessed with the idea of gods saving humanity from retribution by giving them one last chance to prove themselves, then you should dive yourselves into the Record of Ragnarok. The series constitutes 12 episodes, and it is binge-worthily perfect, giving all war-of-the-worlds vibes.
4. Violet Evergarden
If you’re tired of watching rom-com and feel-good movies and are foraging for some depth in the series, then Violet Evergarden should be your next pick.

It’s the story of a young orphan’s attempt to find the meaning of life even when it has just proved to be quite the opposite. Violet Evergarden constitutes a lot of introspection and insights that will make you wonder about the workings of your lives and perhaps even change your perspective towards it. According to IGN, this series is “one of the most beautifully animated series around.” The official streamer also boasts Violet Evergarden: The Movie, which was added to its library on October 13, 2021.
