Netflix, August 2018: Here Is What's New and What’s Getting Removed

Some fan favorites are disappearing from the streaming service.

by Josie Rhodes Cook

It’s that time of the month again. July is almost over, and for any Netflix users, that means a whole crop of new shows and movies are coming to the streaming service for August. It also means some favorites are departing, so you may want to check out a few titles before the end of the month, or at least before the exact dates Netflix is giving them the boot.

In February, word got out that Netflix was planning to publish 30 new anime movies and series throughout 2018. One of those is a three-part anime about love and life in China called Flavors of Of Youth, out on August 4, according to USA Today.

There are also a ton of other movies and shows coming to Netflix in August that aren’t in the anime genre. The titles include superhero movies, comedies, dramas, and more.
