Also part of the deal: “Death Note”, “From Me to You”, “Parasyte: The Maxim”, “Nana” and the first season of the spectacular sports anime “Hajime no Ippo: The Fighting!,” have only started streaming recently. While these have been streamed on the platform before and are widely available on other services, the coolest thing is that Netflix is also set to stream “Monster” and the 1997 version of “Monster” Berserk”.
“Berserk” is based on the hugely popular and influential manga of the same name by the late author Kentaro Miura.

Although the manga is still very popular and successful, the adaptations have been nothing but. The first anime adaptation lasted only 25 episodes. Subsequent adaptations have covered later parts of the manga with uneven results (the 2016 season, which was the only one that was widely available, was considered a CGI monster that failed to adapt. manga). The license agreement for the 1997 program expired in 2012 and has not been legally available in North America since.
As for “Monster”, this is an adaptation of Naoki Urasawa’s manga, which tells the story of a Japanese surgeon in Germany who has an affair with a former patient who turns out to be a serial killer. . The story has been praised for exploiting the psychology of the characters and laying out a complex game of chess that evokes the best Hitchcock horror films. At one point, Guillermo del Toro even intended to do live-action adaptation for HBO.
No release date has been given for “Berserk” or “Monster”.
