Netflix Anime: Gun Gale Online

Netflix is actually buying honest to god Japanese Anime, like Sword Art Online: Gun Gale Online. It’s a war game show, all based in virtual reality. Total good vs evil type stuff. I’m getting into the characters. I’m currently consuming episode 10 of 12.

My friend Chris asked me once, when I recommended a Netflix Anime series. He said “But is it American made? Is it “real anime”?”. I told him “Yes, it’s real japanese anime. They usually offer the original Japanese soundtrack, and english subtitles. I like to rewatch a series I particularly enjoy that way, so I get a better sense of the original voices, and sometimes the subtitles are more literal translations. I have found the American dub of most Anime tends to vary a great deal from the original words the characters spoke.
