Everyone with a Netflix subscription knows about popular shows like Stranger Things and Ozark, but I do my best to try to highlight the myriad shows that fly under the radar when I have the chance. This week, I’m going to point you in the direction of a brand new anime called BEASTARS (a photo of which appears at the top of this article). I completely understand the skepticism, but the first season of the show, which aired in Japan last year, was easily one of the best seasons of TV in 2019. It’s about a civilization of anthropomorphized animals as unease between the herbivores and carnivores turns into outright violence with a mysterious murder at the fore.
If anime isn’t your thing, there’s a healthy variety of other content dropping this week as well, including a comedy special from Marc Maron, the third season of the teen drama On My Block, and a ton of originals from other countries, such as Elite season 3, Kingdom season 2, The Valhalla Murders, and The Circle Brazil, which is a new version of the reality competition series that proved popular when it aired in the US earlier this year.
