'We are in for a treat': Fans Remain Confident Stranger Things Anime Spinoff 'Stranger Things: Tokyo' Will Be a Hit

Stranger Things fans are getting an anime version of the dark and eerie alternate dimension from the show with a spin-off finally said to be in the works. The popular Netflix show is going to have its very own and very first anime spin-off series titled Stranger Things: Tokyo. While the plot details are being kept under wraps, the show is already said to be developing.

Stranger Things Season 4 has broken several records.

The show has already been composed into a gaming format with a total of three Stranger Things games presently available. Two of these are phone games whereas the third and the latest one called Stranger Things: Puzzle Tales has been shifted to the Netflix Games platform. So adding a spin-off to these developments would certainly bode well for the expansion of the franchise.

The Duffer brothers have been hinting toward a spin-off series for quite a while now and it looks like fans are finally getting the project soon. A Stranger Things anime spin-off series called Stranger Things: Tokyo is reportedly going to be “the first” official spin-off of the sci-fi/adventure show.

At the moment, not much is known about the spin-off except that it will be an anime and around 6 hours long. According to What’s on Netflix, the series will witness twin brothers who are video game geeks have an unsettling encounter with the Upside Down which will soon turn into an epic adventure instead. The anime series is said to be set in the 1980s in Tokyo.

Earlier this year in July, the show’s creators also announced an untitled live-action spin-off series, however more details about the same are yet to be disclosed. Matt Duffer did mention that the story of the spin-off is going to be “1000% different” than the original show so that’s definitely something.

As Stranger Things approaches its end with the fifth and final season about a year or so away, there is potential for more such spin-off series to be released, thereby bolstering the legacy of the Stranger Things universe. Till then though, fans are flipping out at the news of this new anime spin-off.

Stranger Things Fans Are Thrilled to Hear About the Show’s Spin-off

The news of Stranger Things: Tokyo seems to have struck a match of excitement among the fandom as people react positively toward this new development. Especially because the spin-off is going to be an anime series, fans are all the more intrigued to see just how it would play out.

While the spin-off seems to have earned encouraging reactions till now, there also seems to be a unanimous discussion about how it would be inherently better if the series would have an ’80s anime aesthetic. But all in all, people are thrilled to witness an anime version of Stranger Things.


The potential release date for Stranger Things: Tokyo hasn’t been divulged yet but it could very well premiere in late 2023. Stranger Things season 5 itself isn’t likely to release before 2024 so it’s unclear what the Duffer brothers have in store for the spin-off. But one thing is clear enough, it’s going to be a blast!

Stranger Things season 1-4 can be streamed on Netflix.
