Parasite, future success or future turnip?
manga Parasite of the author Hitoshi Iwaaki was a big hit in the 1990s in Japan. Since netflix picked up the rights to publish the anime on its streaming platform, a wider audience was able to experience this work which inspired some of the best-selling manga of all time like Jujutsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer Where attack on titan.
