Here is a list of Netflix Anime Releases of August 2021. The month of July was massively successful for Netflix this year. With a jumbo anime slate that was announced through the Geeked week event, Netflix has given a solid statement that they are serious about their plans to conquer the anime business. With expansion at this scale, all the months for the streamer are almost too busy even to make space. This is also a reason why many shows keep getting delayed and rescheduled time and again.
We know it is hard to keep up with all the release dates. Thus, here is a monthly deciphering of all the releases that you will come across this August. All we can hope for now is that these anime don’t get delayed any further from this. So, without any further ado, here is a brief list of all Netflix Anime Releases of August 2021.
Shaman King Season 1
The much-awaited reboot version of the original Shaman King anime is finally coming to Netflix. After the Geeked Week announcement, the anime was set for a global release by Netflix. Japan has already seen the show in April. The story of Shaman King revolves around the Shaman Tournament that is a race for the title of the king. The Shaman King is the highest civilian rank that any man from the kingdom can acquire. Thus, we travel along with Asakura Yoh as he triumphs to qualify and compete in the competition. The Shaman King anime is all set to arrive on Netflix on August 9, 2021. We hope that you will not miss the date.
The Witcher Nightmare of the Wolf
Another Netflix live-action that is getting an anime adaptation this year is The Witcher. This one is one of the most-anticipated Netflix Anime Releases of August 2021.

Hunter X Hunter Season 6
