Put these Disney Plus anime series on your binge list
My Hero Academia (2016)
This is a good reco if you want a light watch but something that’s action-packed. The series follows the adventures (and misadventures) of Izuku Midoriya (Daiki Yamashita), a kid who’s usually bullied because he doesn’t have a quirk, a type of superpower in their world. This changes one day when he and his best friend bump into their idol who’s famous for having one of the strongest quirks in the world.
Jujutsu Kaisen (2018)
This series is like a cross between alternative reality and the supernatural realm. In this dark fantasy anime, a group of high schoolers manage to break the seal of a cursed item and inevitably attract curses to their school. As per standard practice, they have to exorcise the evil creatures and peace will be eventually restored, only things get trickier because the spirit connected to the cursed item takes over Yuji Itadori (Junya Enoki), one of the students.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train Arc (2020)
As with all Demon Slayer episodes, Tanjiro (Natsuki Hanae), Nezuko (Akari Kito), and the rest of the gang do what it takes to fight off the supernatural entities that threaten the welfare of the human race and dealing with their personal struggles—this time, while onboard a train that houses at least 40 people who have reportedly gone missing during the course of a few days. This movie is 119 minutes long and is a box office hit worldwide.
Attack on Titan: The Final Season, Part Two (2020)
Disclaimer: The title itself has riled some fans because it had them believing they would be watching Shingeki no Kyoujin’s finale. Just imagine you’re expecting to see the actual ending of the series, only to be met with yet another cliffhanger. Attack on Titan: The Final Season, part two is NHK General TV’s response to the overwhelming disappointment of AoT/SnK fans. It’s technically considered the series’ fourth season to date.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War—Ultra Romantic (2022)
If you’re a self-confessed tsundere (someone who’s usually mean to their crush), then this show is meant for you. After all, this series is about two high school students who obviously like each other but are both too proud to admit their feelings (sounds familiar?). The show follows their countless schemes to make the other confess how they truly feel about them.
Go waku waku with this series as a man, a woman, and a girl with superhuman abilities (pet dog included) get together and form a pseudo-family. Each of them has their own reasons for hiding their “super powers” from each other. So far, this series is received with a lot of positive reviews because of the plot and the premise that goes with the show. It’s still ongoing, so you may want to get started watching it so you can easily catch up.
Summer Time Rendering (2022)
If you want an anime with retro feels in its animation style, Summer Time Rendering serves up nice and refreshing visuals while following the story of a boy who returns to his homeland after news of his foster sister’s death. Don’t be deceived by the animation and the poster, though, as this goes beyond the typical slice-of-life anime it appears to be. What was initially thought of as accidental drowning of his foster sister appears to be not-the-truth when he starts to get wind of evidence that proves otherwise. Think laid-back anime to mystery (and potentially horror) real quick.
The Rising of The Shield Hero, Season Two (2022)
MMORPG-inspired anime shows are available left and right, and The Rising of the Shield Hero wasted no time joining the top ranks, under the Disney+ roster no less. The series continues to follow the adventures of Naofumi Iwatani (Kaito Ishikawa) while going back and forth to his “original world” and an “alternate world,” with none of those as the actual Japan.
Tomodachi Game (2022)
Think Squid Game, but in anime form. Five high schoolers are transported from the real world into an alternate world where they have to play the notorious Tomodachi Game (roughly translated as Friends Game) to regain funds to replace the missing funds for the school trip of their entire class.
Dance Dance Danseur (2022)
Ballet is not usually a passion that men follow, and one of the main reasons is the impression the dance style is feminine, thereby supposedly making them less of a man. Flawed logic, but that’s exactly what this series addresses. Dance Dance Danseur challenges this way of thinking by presenting a teenage male protagonist who deeply loves ballet but has to give it up at one point. The passion is rekindled when he meets a kindred soul in a woman of the same age.
