Is there any American-made anime? Yes, of course, there are two well known anime that were produced in America (meaning USA), According to Wikipedia. The Animes are: Castlevania with its complete 4 seasons, and The Witcher: the Night of the Wolf an anime that was launched after a successful two seasons from a tv show; The Witcher, in 2019.

It may sound weird since most anime fans tend to be from the Easter countries, however that changes in the last decades when more people from the western developed countries start showing affection for the anime work. And that when American companies started producing their own Animes since it is both profitable and easy to spread the western culture with. The company was called Netflix, and it was the same one who produced the two American-made animes.

Castlevania | Anime with 4 SEASONS

Even though it was one of the best Animes, Netflix claimed that it wasn’t suitable for the younger audience who are less than 18 years old, due to constant aggressive and violence scenes.

However, the Anime gained attraction as soon as it released its first season, mainly, I think because of the main character who was well known in the western and eastern fairy tales, it was called Dracula.

Another thing that might have been an influence in its popularity aside from the story and the well Designed graphics, is the recent launch of a game called Castlevania. It was a hit at that time, even though they had completely different stories; the fact remains that they share the same name.

The anime story is completely different from the game, this time the one that is doing the hunting is not Dracula, they are a group of people: which are the main characters of this story. First: Trevor Belmont, a Monster hunter from the Belmont family; Second, a Witch, Sypha Belnades. And Dracula’s Son, Alucard.

With these Many MCs the anime was never boring, in fact, it was satisfying with an incredible ending, completely unexpected. (Available on Netflix)

The Witcher stories were always really interesting, and no matter the work, it always comes on the top, and drives a large audience and fans. For Example there was a game called The Witcher from 1 to 3, the game has been the best seller each time they release a chapter.

Then Netflix came in and released The Witcher Series with two seasons, starting in 2019, even though the Show is still not complete yet the company announced another season due to the massive number of fans.

This Anime is a unique one since it was one of the few who got Produced in the United States. Its story evolve around a certain Witcher who hunt monsters, or that was the Witcher’s job to begin with, anyway, his past was so miserable, witch led him from the pile of desperations, to seek out the way of the Witcher, and he reaches his goal by passing its exams and becoming one of the strongest in the clan.
