Some of the Japanese anime and live-action titles that will be showcased at Netflix’s TUDUM event in September 2022 have been revealed.

As a reminder, Netflix TUDUM is the global event (not to be confused with the Netflix blog) that will take place on September 24, 2022.

The event will feature several events where we can see some early previews of upcoming Netflix Originals. 100 titles should be broadcast in total.

The Japanese event will take place at 1:00 PM JST on September 25, meaning if you’re in the US you’ll be watching late at night or if you’re in Europe you’ll have to wake up really early.

Here’s when you’ll need to be ready to catch the Japanese showcase:

  • Japan – 1pm JST – September 25
  • PST time zone – 9:00 p.m. – September 24
  • EST time zone – 12:00 p.m. – September 25
  • GMT – 4:00 a.m. – September 25

Anime titles will be shown at the Netflix: Japan TUDUM Showcase

  • JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Ocean of Stone – We are expecting another batch of STONE OCEAN, so this will likely be a worldwide date reveal.

  • Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre – The horror anime series will adapt 20 stories from Itou’s manga for the first time, including Tomie, Souichi, and Kubitsuri Kikyuu.
