There are three seasons to keep you entertained on Netflix. 

One Punch Man – A Superhero Show

A superhero, Saitama, who can beat anyone with only one punch, grows bored with how easily he can defeat his opponents. Saitama hesitant takes on an apprentice, Genos, and the two join the Hero Association. The humor is dry and quick, and it’s highly entertaining.

Attack on Titan – A Horror

The anime follows Eren Jaeger and friends Mikasa Ackermann and Armin Arlelt, who join the Scout Regimen to fight off the giant beasts, or titans, that have demolished the walls that divide them and civilized humanity.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Action Adventure

Each season follows a different hero carrying the Jojo name and the supernatural evil forces they face. The various characters are eccentric and well-written, and their adventures are epic.

With nine seasons, there are plenty of different and compelling storylines to keep you entertained for a while.
