Netflix and Crunchyroll bring together several animes, subtitles and dubbed in Portuguese, of different types and genres. Some of them are considered better than others by the critics and the public, either because of the quality plot, first-rate animation or because of charismatic characters. Meet the top 10 available on both platforms.
Most press and critical note aggregating platforms do not take anime productions into account. Therefore, this list is based on the My Anime List, a site known for aggregating critical and public assessment notes.
Another rule followed to list the anime below is availability: only those productions that are available in one or both platforms are present, in order of decreasing quality.
In addition, the list merges series and movies, as long as they are anime.
