What to Watch on Netflix Japan in 2020

There are countless original series, classic blockbusters, and new releases added to the Netflix library every month. It feels like we spend half our movie night just mulling over our options. To narrow it down for you, here is my list of recommended titles on Netflix Japan.

This list is not limited to only Japanese titles. From sci-fi and fantasy to Korean dramas and anime, there is something for everyone.

Netflix is constantly changing their library and these titles can be removed at any time, so be sure to check them out as soon as you can!

1. My Husband Won’t Fit

My Husband Won’t Fit is one of the few Japanese series that openly discusses sexuality. It’s about a young couple that struggles to have sex because their “parts” don’t fit well together.

Set in the late ’90s to early 2000s, the story follows a country bumpkin named Kumi, who moves away from her family home to attend college. She befriends the eccentric Kenichi, and their relationship progresses quickly. They move in together and get engaged, despite never being able to make love.

While that short synopsis sounds like the intro to a situational comedy, My Husband Won’t Fit presents a story about a couple that has marital issues. Sometimes the problems at hand are presented humorously, but beneath the surface is a serious story that presents issues such as cheating, neglectful parents, and career troubles.
