The popularity of anime has grown tremendously in the last decade. Although still a niche genre in the US, it has become more mainstream thanks to the growing number of people who watch these shows on TV, Netflix, and other online platforms.
With the largest list of anime this year, Netflix brings some of the most anticipated anime productions in collaboration with Japanese anime producers Studio Colorado.
The streaming platform has struck a deal with Studio Colorado on a three-movie deal beginning with the first “Drifting Home” set to premiere on the platform this month. Check this article to know everything.
Netflix Brings Adventure Anime This September “Drifting Home”
Netflix has partnered with Studio Colorado, the Tokyo-based anime studio that produced Mr. Iglesias, to create three original films based on children’s books by Japanese author Hiroyasu Ishida.
Although Netflix has lost subscribers in the first quarter of 2022, it is still the leader in original content. One type of programming that is particularly successful for the company is animation, which has become one of its most celebrated forms of content.
Studio Colorful, the studio behind A Whisker Away, is producing another exciting new anime film for Netflix. Drifting Home will be released on 16 of September.

It still holds some of its mysteries, but it reveals enough for fans to get a better idea of what’s in store for them once they finally get to see it on Netflix later this month.
The trailer for the new series re-introduces Kosuke, who along with two classmates break into an abandoned apartment complex that is scheduled for demolition and is rumored to be haunted.
But what they found there is not supernatural at all. As the group sleeps in the doomed apartment, they wake up to find that their accommodation has been transported to an unknown location: it appears to be floating in a vast ocean.
The rest of the trailer is upbeat and includes scenes of children swimming and fishing; however, there are hints that something sinister lurks beyond his vision.
Natsume introduces the group to a man named Noppo, who seems to know more about what’s going on than anyone else.
The trailer shows the group coming across another complex that is sinking into the water; they attempt to rescue those trapped inside.
One of the exciting reasons to give this adventure anime a solid shot is the cast that has been portrayed by some of the popular artists in the anime industry. Asami Seto, popularly known as Mai Sakurajima, plays Natume Tonai.
Mutsumi Tamura as Kōsuke Kumagaya, Ayumu Murase as Noppo, Bin Shimada as Yasuji Kumagaya, and Daiki Yamashita as Yuzuru.
With such an exciting trailer, the movie has done an outstanding job of giving us a sneak peek of the film without blowing the plot too much and keeping the excitement going for the big release on September 16.
