“I’m looking for recommendations for some anime to watch “
People who ask themselves this question fall into two groups.
There are two kinds of anime fans: those who have seen every popular anime ever made, and those who just started watching anime recently.
Those of you in the second group, we have some great news for you.
Here are a few of the best anime shows to watch right now.
A lot of shows take a long time to set up the plot or just don’t have enough action to keep you interested in what’s going on.
At first, you’ll look up at the ceiling while an anime soundtrack plays in the background.
Let me suggest a few of my favorite shows to keep you from getting bored so you don’t have to waste time and energy looking for something to watch.
Genre – Drame, Sci-fi
Orange is a high school romance/drama with a mysterious twist.
Naho Takamiya, who is 16 years old, finds a letter from herself written ten years from now.
It tells her to keep an eye out for Kakeru Naruse, a new transfer student who will become one of her friends.
26. Death Note
Death Note has been getting a lot of people into anime for a long time.
People often start with Death Note when they want to watch anime.
The story is about Light Yagami, who finds a book that will kill anyone who writes their name in it.
Some of the best mental tricks ever are shown in this anime.
This anime series is one of the best out there, so don’t miss it.
25. The World God Only Knows
The main character, Keima Katsuragi, is one of those people with a lot of brains. Even though his plans are complicated, they never seem to go wrong.
He is also a huge fan of games where you try to find a date.
With his dating-sim skills, he tries to get all the girls he meets to like him. For some reason, he finds all of them attractive.
During Keima’s journey, he changes from being a shy gamer to someone who can connect with people on a personal level.
Genre: Romantic Comedy, Slice-of-Life
Romantic anime doesn’t always make you bored quickly, because it usually takes a few episodes to get to know each character and care about their relationship.
Toradora! uses a lot of funny jokes to get around this problem.
Once the movie has your attention, it takes its time to set up the story (and the romance between the main characters) while continuing to make you laugh at every turn.
Many people will be moved by how strange Ryuji and Taiga’s relationship is.
Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Comedy
Older shows don’t usually interest me because they often take too long for people to watch today.
The show Slayers is a must-see for those of us who grew up watching anime on Saturday mornings.
There is a big story going on in this area.
But the funny things that happen to Lina Inverse and her group of RPG stereotypes keep us coming back.
22. Daily Lives of High School Boys
Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life
This slapstick comedy is about what a group of teenage boys go through as they try to figure out who they are and deal with the usual problems of growing up.
What makes this show stand out is how it turns everyday things into skits that are funny.
The show is all jokes, and there is only a hint of longing for high school.
21. Cromartie High School
Some of the students are such bad people, it’s hard to believe they’re still alive.
This world is full of robots, gorillas, and, of course, Freddie Mercury.
It’s a great place to forget about your problems and end boredom for good.
20. Cowboy Bebop
Genres: Action, Comedy, Adventure
You have to see this.
Even though they’re from the 1990s, it’s still fun to watch old anime shows from that time.
This animation is more well-known in the West than it is in Japan.
There aren’t many great English dubs of anime, but this one stands out.
The story follows bounty hunters Spike Speigel and Jet as they go about their daily lives. Each episode is called a “chapter.”
It’s one of the best anime to watch because it has great music and a story that keeps you interested.
19. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Genres: Adventure, Action, Mystery
The plot of the MAL’s most-watched anime is almost perfect.
Because of this, you’ll feel a lot of different things while watching this show.
All of the characters are well-rounded and get enough screen time.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is one of the best anime shows that have ever been made.
Genre: Crime, Cyberpunk, Psychological Thriller
If you like shows like Criminal Minds or The Ted Bundy Tapes, Psycho-Pass will definitely keep your attention for at least a few episodes.
As Akane Tsunemori looks into a group of strange criminals, she learns about their complicated pasts and why they did what they did.
They are poor, unhappy, and a reflection of all the worst things about society.
17. Re: Zero – Starting Life in Another World
Genre: Isekai, Adventure
In Re: Zero, the main character isn’t strong like in a lot of other isekai shows.
The hero of the story, Subaru, can go back in time after he dies.
One of the most interesting things about the show is how Subaru tries to save the people he cares about.
16. Sword Art Online
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
People often criticize SAO because Kirito has too much power and the story isn’t the best ever written.
Before the second season, you don’t notice these problems, but even then, the show is still a lot of fun.
As we see in the show, virtual reality games have gotten so good that it’s almost impossible to tell them apart from the real thing.
It’s what gamers think about at night.
To start, there are always new places to explore, new enemies to fight, and new girls for Kirito to “accidentally” fall in love with.
As the first season of the show goes on, new enemies, conflicts, and gaming worlds are added regularly.
Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life, Musical
I wasn’t sure about K-On! when I first heard about it.
What could be better than having cake and tea with a band made up of only women?
It wasn’t meant to be funny, for sure.
What a silly thing for me to do!
K-On! was a very big hit.
This coming-of-age story is about making friends and realizing your own potential.
It is told by a charming group of anime girls in KyoAni’s softest, fluffiest style ever.
Every new episode of K-On! is better than the last.
If you didn’t love the first one, seeing it a few more times might help.
14. KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World
Genre: Comedy, Adventure, Fantasy
The enemy of comedy is being bored.
If you’re looking for something that will make you laugh, KonoSuba is a great choice.
As you may have seen, the quality of the animation changes a lot from one frame to the next.
It is hard to tell which scenes are amazing and which ones are more like abstract paintings.
Even so, I don’t mind it too much because it’s not a serious show.
13. Steins; Gate
Genre: Sci-fi, Mystery, Psychological
If you like the idea of going back in time, this show is for you.
Rintarou Okabe, the main character of the mind-blowing story Stein; Gate, is trying to make a time machine.
At first, the story moves slowly, but then it picks up speed.
Steins says that some of Gate’s best scenes will stick with you for a long time.
12. Parasyte -The Maxim-
Genre: Horror Thriller, Body Horror, Sci-Fi
There’s nothing like a gripping thriller to get your mind back from the edge of boredom.
Luckily, opening Netflix and starting to watch Parasyte -The Maxim only takes a few seconds.
This interesting science fiction story is about a parasite that turns people into ugly, killing robots. It turns out to be a surprising story about what makes someone “human.”
You can have fun with both fighting and deep philosophical ideas in one easy package.
11. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
Genre: Mecha, Military, Thriller
I’m not an intellectual, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
I just get bored when my mind doesn’t have to work hard.
Consider viewing Code Geass if you’re like me.
The story is about an exiled prince who rises up against the Brittanian Empire and gains the power to control other people without them knowing it.
Lelouch, the main character, will use his great intelligence to manipulate and trick everyone around him as if he were playing a game of chess.
It’s exciting to see how his plans work out. Figuring out what will happen next is hard work for the mind.
10. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
Genre: Dark Fantasy, Adventure
Demon Slayer is the show that turned more people into anime fans than any other show I’ve seen.
I’m sure it can keep someone from getting bored as long as it can change their whole view of anime.
The characters in the show are all different and likeable, with their own looks and personalities.
Also, their fighting styles and what they bring to the fight are different, so every fight with a demon is different and exciting.
When a special move is used, the show’s visual effects, which use a mix of CGI and old Japanese painting techniques to make an impressive show, reflect these different ways of fighting.
9. Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works
Genre: Fantasy, Battle Shounen
Getting into the Fate series is a surefire way to keep yourself from getting bored for at least a few weeks.
You could end up spending hundreds of dollars in the Grand Order gacha or searching for every last bit of animated content.
Watching Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works first is important.
This great program will also teach you a lot about the Holy Grail War, heroic spirits, and servant-master relationships in a way that is both fun and easy to understand.
8. My Hero Academia
Genre: Super-hero Fantasy, Adventure
Boredom is a thing of the past. Why?
Since All-Might has arrived!
My Hero Academia is a great way to avoid being bored.
Shounen anime has never been better, with a great mix of action, character growth, and the prettiest female superheroes.
What happens next is a trip into a fascinating world where everyone has a “Quirk” or superpower, and where the protagonists, heroes, and villains all try to figure out what that means.
7. Food Wars!
Genre: Cooking, Comedy, Slice of Life
Some shounen anime are more about sports than fighting, but most of them are about fighting.
But would you have ever thought of an anime where people fight over cooking?
Food Wars! came as a big surprise to me.
But this is one of my favorite shounen animes.
But keep an eye out.
If you watch the whole episode, you might think it’s a good idea to challenge your friends to a food war.
6. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime
Genre: Action, Fantasy, Comedy
On this strange planet, people made slime that is strangely strong and can take on the abilities of other animals.
Rimuru is one of a kind, just like Kirby’s pink blob ancestor.
This show isn’t just about how Rimuru gets stronger and stronger until he can’t be hurt.
This program is like Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain, but it is set in a medieval fantasy world.
5. Kill la Kill
Genre: Action, Comedy, Magical Girl
If you’re bored and can’t pay attention to anything else, you might need a constant stream of badass fights, visual humor, and obvious fan service.
Mako Mankanshoku is exciting because it has fast-paced action, parts that make you feel sad, and funny lines that make you laugh out loud.
Genre: Sports, Coming-of-Age, Comedy
Haikyuu!! is a great show to watch if you don’t get enough exercise at home and feel slow, bored, and like you’re dying.
The main focus of this story is volleyball, but the fights are just as fierce as any fight to the death.
When the volleyball team at Karasuno High serves or blocks, it looks like they’ve been through a lot of hard times before.
At the end of the show, it feels like everything is on the line.
Genre: Surreal Comedy, Slice of Life
The main idea behind Nichijou is that cute girls do funny things.
This simple idea is turned into a hilarious comedy by KyoAni’s great execution and visual brilliance.
Even the most ordinary things can be made funny and interesting by the show.
This series has wacky comedy and action scenes that are just as good as those in the best combat or sports shonen anime.
Love and friendship are sprinkled on top of a great cast to make a healthy show that will make you laugh out loud and warm your heart at the same time.
2. Attack on Titan
Genre: Action, Dark Fantasy, Mystery
Attack on Titan is just as addicting and popular as Game of Thrones when it comes to anime.
Both of these series are similar in that they don’t mind killing off the main characters and put them in bad situations.
This gives the audience a sense of realism, since there is never a guarantee that things will turn out well.
The show’s focus on mystery is one thing that makes it stand out.
1. Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
Genre: Fantasy, Supernatural, Adventure
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is one of those shows where you can’t look away or you’ll miss something great.
It is out of this world in every way.
But Hirohiko Araki’s unique personalities and strange characters will still keep you interested.
The anime shows the first five episodes of the show. Each episode has a different cast and setting.
You can skip to the next Jojo if you don’t like the one you’re on. Then, when you’re a real Jojo fan, you can go back and watch it again.
If you like fighting anime but can’t stand another popular show, Jojo is your best bet.
