After a late-week last week, Netflix speeded up again in the middle of the month. This is because the two major original programs are back in the new season. Grace and Frankie and Sex Education.
The latter is one of the great successes of 2019, and his second season seems to resume where he left first. Meanwhile, Grace and Frankie continue to fight as one of the longest-running programs on the service.
There are also some licensed movies, Master and Steve Jobs, that are worth adding to their list, but personally, I’m interested in seeing what the NiNoKuni anime (based on the game of the same name) turned out to be there is.
The following is a complete list of Netflix Streaming arrivals and departures for the week of January 12, 2020. Netflix’s latest anime offer is Ni no Kuni, a video game adaptation slightly related to Studio Ghibli.
Famous animation houses have contributed to the design of characters and other components of the game, but are not particularly associated with movies, despite similar visual tones and textures.
So, does the movie that debuted in Japan in 2019 before the international Netflix release survive on its own merit, or is it in the very high shadow of Ghibli and its source material?
NI NO KUNI: send or jump?
The bottom line: it all starts with a stick of bars. An old man stands on a hospital roof and pushes a cane into the air.
Are you old? No way! Soon, three high school students are drawn into a parallel world full of swollen robes, anthropomorphic, terrifying monsters, and a large mountain of glittering magic. Hull (voice of Nitta McKenyu) is an impulsive basketball star. Yu (Kento Yamazaki) is his relatively shy close friend and is in a wheelchair. And Kotona (Mei Nagano) is Haru’s girlfriend, but Yu awaits her silently.
