Great Pretender Part 1: Here is an announcement for every anime lover waiting for a thriller anime series


Netflix is about to release a Japanese crime anime series, which is listed under Netflix Originals by August 2020 – GREAT PRETENDER. The series is written by Ryota Kurosawa and produced by WIT Studio. It was broadcast on Japan’s Fuji TV.


This anime is not based on the Manga series but somehow based on the heist genre.

This is expected to turn out as a hit because of its fascinating animations, character development, storyline, and much more that we will see once the series show up on the screens.

Now many assumed the release to delay because on the ongoing pandemic, but the developers assured that the release will take place in 2020 itself.


Part one of the anime has 14 episodes which will stream on Netflix on Thursday, which is 20th August 2020. It will release internationally but already streamed in Japan in June 2020.
