The best animated series on Netflix is ​​not anime

Sometimes, when the world is burning all around us, all you want to do is stick to a good cartoon. Fortunately, we live in an age where it is more or less recognized that animation and animation are not just for kids, which leads to a plethora of good shows to watch.

There is just something about watching good animation that feels more comfortable than non-animated TV, and I’m excited to share this gem with you. Admittedly, I’m not as familiar with the first three shows as the rest of the shows on this list are, but from what I’ve seen and heard, they are absolute gems and well worth the buzz.

Centaurworld

(Netflix)

Imagine a sense of humor SpongeBobbut with more seriousness, Bojack Way under it. This is what I collected Centaurworld: A surreal show about a war horse that is sent to another world, where abominable (and amusing) centaurs sing and dance.

The horse (called “Horse”) was separated from its rider during a desperate battle, and now she seeks to get back to it as soon as possible. It’s a great concept and it has a lot of potential, and given the current way the show is going, that potential could expand into more intrigues.

Hilda

(Netflix)

Hilda Endlessly charming and gentle, it is almost hard to bear. The innocence of her adventurous spirit makes you truly yearn for those happy childhood days, when everything was full of magic and joy. In this sense, it is the perfect show for both children And grown ups.

If you love MominAnd A bee and dolls, bare bears, over the garden wall, Or anything for that matter, you’ll probably love this show. She’s probably the most kid-centric on this list, so keep that in mind.

mysterious

I know almost nothing about anything league of legendsthe science of making the backbone of mysteriousbut from what I understand, most people who like this show are not league Fans too. Think about what you want from Riot and league Guys, this show is something else.

Not only is the art style beautiful and inspiring, but the animation itself is superb and fun to watch, and the characters generated some of the most positive fan responses I’ve seen in a while. Plus, we love seeing lesbians thrive on screen!

I love death + robots

(Netflix)

I have to admit, I think I love death + robots It is, in general, an acquired taste. There is a lot of overt and unnecessary sexual exploitation of women and gay people, and the violence sometimes looks like it was painted by a teenage boy. However, it is undeniable that they are a very ingenious anthology of animation.

Each episode has a different style and a different stand-alone plot, the likes of which are similar to the kinds of science fiction short stories you might read in college. It’s definitely a trip, and if you’re a fan of darker sci-fi themes, you’ll likely enjoy this trip.

Plus, there’s a new season coming soon, so…time to catch up!

Midnight Gospel

Midnight Gospel is a journey
(Netflix)

Well, here it is clear that Adult Swimism has leaked to other networks, although I would take the risk Midnight Gospel It is much more compact than most adult swim offerings. It’s a philosophical trilogy about a “space announcer” who wanders and thinks about anyone he meets.

It’s like watching what happens if you take an Alan Watts lecture, give it a shape, and then split it among a cast. rick and mortish Characters (design wise, I mean). Most people see it as a must-watch show while being stoned, and while I often think the weed jokes are annoying, I have to admit that some of the show’s wisest moments get lost in me when I’m sober.

big mouth

(Netflix)

Yes, yes, I know.big mouth Gross,” etc.. It’s gross. But that’s kind of the point, and since the creators knew that was the point, they were able to make the rest of the show — as it were — a lot of fun.

I don’t know if I’m going to say love This show, but when a new season comes around, I’m always very impressed. He deals with serious topics, such as approval and transitory representation, with grace and maturity. And while it’s certainly true that the show has been discontinued for delving into the topic of teen sexuality at all, I think it covers the topic much more adequately than some of the other “teen” shows out there.

resentment

Matt Groening
(Netflix)

To be honest, I’m not sure a lot of people like this show, and I think that’s sad. It’s not a bad show in itself; It’s watchable and has all the classic Groening touches. It’s only when you compare Which shown to her successful ancestors (in this case, The Simpsons And Futurama), you will definitely be disappointed.

resentment It’s an absolutely fantastic show, with a ridiculous cast of characters that really grow on you, and a world and plot that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Plus, I love the fact that the movie’s heroine, Princess Bean, is a gay girl with a funky body and a knack for spoiling things. Girls like us need some actors too!

Castlevania

(Netflix)

You have no idea how many Google searches it took to finally conclude this Castlevaniawhile anime-ish, it isn’t Technically I grow. Which I’m happy about personally, not because I have anything against anime, but because it means I’ll put it on this list.

Castlevania She is just… that bitch, honestly. It’s so silly and excellent, it reminds me less of the origins of video games and more of a different video game series, devil may cry. The violence is out of control, the characters are tacky and playful, and each individual character is downright incredible. In particular, Isaac’s entire story got me wrapped around his little finger, and it’s still one of the best character arcs on any show I’ve ever seen. 10/10, a very kissable guy.

Touka and Bertie

Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong voted Toka and Birdie in the new Netflix series.
(Netflix)

Hey man. I don’t even know how to properly describe my love for this show. Lisa Henwalt is a really smart and innovative writer, though Touka and Bertie He may seem too clumsy to handle at times, he really deserves all the love he gets.

Female friendships are very important, and this show conveys that in spades. Plus, both Tuca and Bertie’s journeys as individuals are pretty relatable to anyone who considers adulthood an elusive concept (which is most of us), and the show’s more serious elements are executed very well.

Bojack Horseman

(Netflix)

that it Bojack. If you haven’t seen it, well. That’s too much, man.

Honorable mention: New Yukio

(Netflix)

Well, I know this show was a meme but it’s worth watching for the exact same reason. Who’s to say we’ll get another weird anime-type show directed by an indie set-up, starring the likes of Jaden Smith, Jude Law, and Jason Schwartzman?

I hate and miss this show. New Yukio forever.
