Netflix has revealed their streaming schedule for the month of December 2019 which includes a variety of titles such as the already-confirmed Carole & Tuesday Episodes 13-24 and The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. Reawakened, but there are a couple more anime titles that will make an appearance, specifically for the United Kingdom and Ireland territories.
This article has been updated on 24th November to reflect some changes to the No Game No Life arrival date.
First things first, both Digimon Fusion and Space Dandy will be delisted on 1st December 2019 so watch those two titles as soon as you can! In addition, English subtitles have been added to Dragon Ball Super: Broly so you can now watch the film in Japanese audio without issue (no news on whether English audio will be added).
Coming this December, you will be able to watch the entire series of No Game No Life as well as the film No Game No Life Zero! Sentai Filmworks has been pushing more and more of their titles onto the Netflix platform over the past month with US & Canadian fans getting the likes of Clannad, K-On! and more. The UK did get Girls und Panzer der Film and Haikyu!!.
Plot synopsis (via Sentai Filmworks):
On the internet, they’re legends: the tag-team duo known as BLANK, famed for their incredible game-playing skills. In the real world, however, the lives of 18-year-old Sora and his 11-year-old stepsister Shiro have been spiraling out of control. Now existing as shut-ins, they rarely leave their house and are unable to be separated without suffering panic attacks. Games, for them, are the safest retreat from reality – until they win a chess match against a mysterious opponent known as Tet and find themselves pulled into a game bigger than any they could have ever imagined.
In a world where the outcome of games determines the fates of both civilizations and species, they must defend humanity in the ultimate challenge, vying against a host of otherworldly competitors for the right to rule them all! But if they fail, it means slavery or destruction for all mankind. No pressure, of course! Can two misfits who can barely handle their own lives somehow rise to the occasion and save the human race?
Also arriving on 1st December 2019 is Sonic X, just in time for the upcoming live-action Hollywood adaptation of the video game character which recently received a new makeover design to match closely to the original character. Sonic X is expected to be based on the English dubbed version of the show.
Plot synopsis (via Discotek Media):
The Evil Doctor Eggman has gathered the seven Chaos Emeralds for his latest dastardly scheme, but like a bolt from the blue, Sonic the Hedgehog arrives to save the day! Only this time, an accident triggers Chaos Control, Hurling everyone into a different world, a world that looks an awful lot like our own. To get home, Sonic together with Tails, Amy, Knuckles, and all the gang must find the Chaos Emeralds. But he’s not the only one looking for them! Doctor Eggman has come to this world as well, and while the other might just want to return, Eggman sees a new land ripe for making part of his Eggman Empire! The race is on, and when it comes to speed, there’s no way Sonic can lose! Don’t blink and don’t think, because Sonic X is out of this world!
On 6th December 2019, the long-awaited second season of Teasing Master Takagi-san will finally be available for legal streaming after its Japanese broadcast back in the Summer 2019 anime season. Much like The Disastrous Life of Saiki K., Funimation dubbed and released the first season while the second season ended up on Netflix. Despite being listed as part of the Netflix Series slate, it’s not clear if an English dub will be included and whether or not the English cast from the Funimation team will return to reprise their roles.
Plot synopsis (via Funimation, for Season 1):
Tired of being mercilessly teased by his classmate Takagi, Nishikata vows to get back at the girl that’s made him blush countless times. After all, if you blush, you lose! But getting vengeance isn’t so easy when every attempt blows up in his face. Will Nishikata ever make Takagi blush, or will he gain something more fulfilling from his bumbling attempts?
