Streaming service Netflix has had two very different shows become the most popular ones. Heartwarming family drama and exciting spirit fights have both done very well. Obliterated, which was at the top of Netflix’s chart, has been knocked off the top spot by My Life with the Walter Boys and Yu Yu Hakusho. This surprising turn of events shows how varied the streaming giant’s audience is and shows that sometimes a good hug or an adventure killing demons can be better than a Vegas hangover.

On top is My Life with the Walter Boys, a sweet teen story about a girl who lives in the country of Colorado with her seven brothers. People looking for a feel-good escape have connected with the show’s familiar coming-of-age story, which is full of funny and heartwarming moments.

At second position is Yu Yu Hakusho, a live-action version of the popular anime. In this exciting story, Yusuke Urameshi, a former criminal turned Spirit Detective, fights demons and figures out the secrets of the afterlife. Both old and new fans are thrilled with how faithfully the show reimagines the source material and how intense the action scenes are.

Why the Surge?

Obliterated was at the top of the charts at first thanks to its intense action and dark humor, but it seems to have lost steam. The show’s focus on hangovers and chaos might not have kept the attention of a larger audience, especially when compared to Walter Boys and Yu Yu Hakusho, which are more emotional and mix genres.

The popularity of these two shows that Netflix users have a wide range of tastes. My Life with the Walter Boys gives a new look at family relationships and being a young adult. It will appeal to people who want to connect with characters and feel the emotions. The anime adaptation Yu Yu Hakusho, on the other hand, brings a nostalgia while also attracting new viewers with its unique mix of action and comedy.

What are the audience saying about the shows?

The popularity of these shows is also a sign of bigger changes in the streaming world. In My Life with the Walter Boys, the desire for real, diverse characters is clear, and Yu Yu Hakusho shows that anime adaptations are still very popular. These two shows are also very popular on social media, where fans talk about their favorite scenes and characters, making them even more famous.

Talking about My Life with the Walter Boys, one person on IMDb said, “Wow, Nikki Rodriguez delivers a fantastic performance in her first starring role in a series. So much depth in her portrayal of her character. So many moments that you can really see the wheels turning inside of her head. She really lets the audience participate in her journey. Noah Lalonde really encapsulates the bad boy vibe that you typically see in these kinds of series. Ashby Gentry is the perfect casting for the guy who SHOULD get the girl, but usually has a harder time than the one who shouldn’t. The supporting cast has GREAT chemistry and I see this series getting a second season and beyond. Can’t wait to see these actors grow even more into their roles!”

As we said, even newcomers are loving the anime adaptation of Yu Yu Hakusho. Talking about that, another person on IMDb stated, “I have watched many anime but never heard of this anime and today I randomly started watching this live action series on Netflix and really I loved it.”
