Even though it’s the Halloween season, not all of the new Netflix movies and shows this month are about ghosts and murders. If the graphic new series by Ryan Murphy about serial murderer Jeffrey Dahmer isn’t your thing, we’ve compiled a list of upcoming Japanese productions that will be much happier (and less troublesome) to watch.
It contains the 2021 love tale “We Made a Beautiful Bouquet” as well as an animation produced only for Netflix about a lady who finds herself stranded in a society filled with attractive, single men (oh, the horror!). Be aware that there can be geographical limitations.
4 new Japanese Movies and Series
We Made a Beautiful Bouquet

The two finally fall in love despite taking some time to get to know one other and find domestic happiness while adjusting to life as youths working professionals in the city.
Overview: This tender and quiet drama, which was produced by Nobuhiro Doi, spans five years. Masaki Suda and Kasumi Arimura’s real-world performances save us from tacky big gestures.

Release Date: October 14th, 2022
Plot: Anzu, a high school student, describes her ideal situation as staying home in her sweatpants while enjoying her pets, computer games, and chocolate. Despite her lack of interest in anything that would disrupt her comfortable routine, her life is turned upside down when a small mischievous wizard appears out of a computer game and declares his desire to assist Anzu in finding a lover.
The wizard then places Anzu in a dating simulation world that lacks her favorite activities but is populated by gorgeous young bachelors. Anzu is annoyed by this and decides to avoid any romantic meetings so she may resume munching snacks in her room like a typical adolescent.
Overview: ‘Aggretsuko’ fans will like the slapstick humor and nonconforming protagonist of this forthcoming anime. This hilarious new animation, which is based on a Wataru Momose manga, is for everyone who has ever been harassed by intrusive family members regarding their romantic status.

Tiger & Bunny 2

Spy x Family

Although each member of the three is focused on their own task, they quickly adapt to their new relationship and finally start to feel more like a true family than they had imagined.
Overview: Who would have thought that a show about a cunning assassin and a serious spy would turn out to be so really touching? Beyond the sardonic humor and gorgeous artwork, this anime series from 2022 is brimming with the cheery material that we all sorely need.
Release Date: Episodes will resume on October 1st, 2022.
