Stranger Things fans might currently be waiting on the final half of Season 4 to hit Netflix next month, but some cool new art has imagined what the franchise would look like with its own kind of anime! Netflix has been diving further and further into new anime projects in the last few years, and many of their original productions have been adaptations that showcase franchises in a whole new way. Fans have seen this with the likes of Castlevania and the upcoming Skull Island, but there's also a lot of fun that the service could have with anime takes on its own franchises.
Showing off just how cool a full anime adaptation for Stranger Things could really be, new art from @jvmathi on Instagram has imagined some key moments from Stranger Things 4 Vol. 1 in a fully anime style. There's not only one of the more awkward moments of the season as Eleven tries to use her powers (in vain) against some bullies early on in the series, and of course, an anime take on the pivotal moment from Episode 4 that fans have been loving since it hit. Check out the makeovers below:
Stranger Things 4 Vol. 2 releases with Netflix on July 1st, and you can currently find the first four seasons streaming with the service now to catch up. As for the first volume of the fourth season, ComicBook.com's Patrick Cavanaugh noted the following in the official review (which you can check out in full here), "With another month to go before fans can see how this season concludes, there's still a chance to go out on a high note. Much like how the Duffer brothers have claimed this season focuses on more horror, they have also promised that this season will start answering longstanding questions. After seven episodes, we've only been given slivers of information about the overall narrative, with the mysteries solved mostly centered around elements only introduced in this season."
Continuing further with, "Given that Episode 7 runs 98 minutes and with reports that the final two episodes of the season clock in at a combined four hours, there's plenty of time left for the series to provide a satisfying ending, though it's entirely possible it could botch the landing." But what do you think? How did you like the first volume of Stranger Things' fourth season? What are you hoping to see in the final episodes?
