Several major anime series will be leaving Netflix around the world in June 2022, including the US. Both destiny zero and Kill La Kill are ready to go, but as we’ve already seen with these titles and other anime series, the distance dates can change a lot.
It’s a fact that Netflix doesn’t own everything it streams. Much of the content (including Netflix original content) is licensed for a set period of time. If those licenses need to be renewed, two parties will have to make new arrangements to keep shows streaming or they’ll leave the company. That’s now the case with three popular anime series.
Kill la Kill leaves Netflix again!
Kill la Kill Streams in over half a dozen Netflix regions, including Netflix US, and expires June 15 in all regions except South Korea. The show features distance dates on Netflix in the United States, Canada, and all Latin American regions.
Created by Hiroyuki Imaishi, this series follows Ryuko Matoi, known as the woman with the scissor blade, as she searches the world for clues to get to the bottom of her father’s death. The anime series frequently ranks among the lists that look at the best anime series of all time.
However, we have walked this path before. Kill la Kill was previously removed as Netflix itself confirmed its departure back in April 2019. While the series departed in May 2019, it only lasted a month before returning in June 2019.

Now the series is leaving three years after it was relicensed to Netflix. Of course, this removal could again be temporary or permanent.
The good news is that the series is currently available elsewhere. The show is available in full on Hulu, HBO Max, Funimation, and Crunchyroll.

Leaving Netflix in a pattern similar to Kill La Kill is destiny zero All 25 episodes will be retired on June 15, 2022 in the United States, Canada and Latin America. It seems safe for now in regions like the UK, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
If you have never checked out destiny zero beforehand, here’s what you can expect:
“After three unresolved battles over the mystical Holy Grail, an artifact that bestows miracles on those who possess it, a fourth war begins.”
In addition to these two anime series leaving Netflix, the service will lose the anime Madoka Magica worldwide also on June 15, 2022. This 12 part series is about Madoka Kaname and the tale of magical witch girls.
