Even though it halloween season, not all new Netflix movies and shows this month are about ghosts and murder. If you don’t like Ryan Murphy’s new graphic series about serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, we’ve compiled a list of upcoming Japanese productions that will be much more fun (and less hassle) to watch.
Featuring the 2021 love story “We Made a Beautiful Bouquet” and an animation produced exclusively for Netflix about a woman who is stuck in a society full of attractive, single men (oh, horror!). Please note that there may be geographic restrictions.
