Coming Soon to Netflix: June 2020

Forget about the Korean dramas exploding onto Netflix in June, I am excited about the Japanese anime series Cardcaptor Sakura! Thanks to one of my college besties Miss Chani-chan, I have read the manga and seen all of the anime. LOVE this series. This is a CLAMP title I can get behind. Well…I do like XXXholic, too, even with its ending.

What are you looking forward to for the June release of Asian dramas, movies, and anime on Netflix? I don’t dislike Chinese or Korean dramas by any means, but I get super excited when I see Japanese dramas coming to Netflix or other streaming platforms, so I am looking forward to that.
