Best TV Shows to Watch on Netflix: Atelier

Photo Credit: (

Atelier is one of the most popular Japanese shows on Netflix, and for good reason.

Like many Japanese shows, the concept may seem a bit strange at first, but it somehow works really well. Atelier is about a high-end lingerie store, and the two main characters in the show are the original founder of the brand, as well as a brand new hire to the shop. If you watched Pretty Proofreader, I would say that the feel of the two shows are relatively similar.

It may seem weird to make a show about a lingerie store, but it is just the base of the show. The actual plot includes plenty of scheming, revenge, drama, and other factors that make a show interesting.

Throughout the show the main character of the show, Mayuko (played by Mirei Kiritani), overcomes many obstacles while also building herself into a force in the lingerie world. As the show progresses, there is a really interesting relationship that develops between Mayuko and her boss, Mayumi (played by Mao Daichi).

I have watched so many Japanese shows on Netflix now, and I found almost all of them to be really enjoyable. Atelier is another show that I would have almost no interest in watching if it were an American show (I only watched it because I need to practice my Japanese), yet somehow managed to surprise me and vastly exceed my expectations!

Atelier Recommendation Rating: 4

1: Something worth checking out if you have time

2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone

3: Something worth prioritizing if interested

4: Something worth making time to check out

5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
