A Rom-Com About Antoni Porowski's Sexually Fluid Love Life Is Coming to Netflix

Antoni Porowski's romantic escapades are coming to the big screen.

Netflix's reboot of Queer Eye is a beacon of light in dark times (despite its occasionally capitalist leanings).

The 9 Best JRPGs of the PS4 Era

The modern boom of JRPGs

Square Enix

They don't make JRPGs like they used to, but maybe that's a good thing.

While classic JRPGs thrived during the PlayStation 1 era and saw major innovations during the PlayStation 2 era, the PlayStation 3 era marked a major fall from grace for the genre. Save for a few major titles like Dark Souls and Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, fresh JRPG releases had grown increasingly scarce, and even the more major titles like Final Fantasy XIII were plagued by mixed reviews.

But with the PlayStation 4, JRPGs have seen a return to prominence. Sure, there may not be as many individual releases of bizarre, unheard of IPs like there were during the PS1 era, but PS4 era JRPGs have more than made up for quantity with quality. These are the best-of-the-best:

Orange

Among all of the binge-worthy shows that Netflix has to offer, don't forget their immense library of anime for you to get your fill on stylized action, intense drama, and gripping stories.

But we're not just talking about rewatches of Fullmetal Alchemist or Naruto. Netflix also features plenty of amazing anime that you can only stream on their platform. From down to earth stories about the music industry that take place on Mars to a teen wolf's harrowing coming-of-age story, there's a unique anime for everyone to add to their watch lists, no matter their taste.

Here are our picks for some great anime that you can stream exclusively on Netflix:

Carole and Tuesday (2019, 24 episodes)

Studio Bones

The duo make their first Instagram post to commemorate their indie music debut.

Director Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Space Dandy) brings his artistic appreciation for western music to life in this musical sci-fi drama. When a struggling young orphan in between part-time jobs crosses paths with a rich girl fleeing from her pampered yet stifling lifestyle, the two bond over their desire to make music. Fueled by a shared passion for song, this ragtag duo tries to make it big in the Martian music industry.

While the show maintains the style and charm that Watanabe is known for, the real star of Carole and Tuesday is its diverse soundtrack. Nearly every episode introduces new songs from a wide variety of real life artists (see Nai Br.XX and Celeina Ann, the musical talent behind the titular characters), each offering a refreshing and nuanced understanding of the genre they represent. Catchy pop songs, gentle acoustic numbers, and smooth R&B tracks share the spotlight throughout the entirety of this heartwarming and inspiring anime.
