 1  Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

Code Geass is brilliant.It is one of the best animes ever made to date and stands with the best shows/movies of all time as well. You might very well have heard similar praises for this show before and I’m here to say that it deserves every single one of them.

It has never been an anime that blended, brilliant character development, amazing music, intriguing moral dilemmas, immersive story, and exciting mecha battles as well as Code Geass has. The number one biggest must-watch anime series of all time.


 2  Hunter x Hunter (2011)

If you are looking for the kind of Anime that will leave you sitting at the edge of your chair Hunter x Hunter (2011) is the right one for you.

The story might seem a little childish at first but as soon as it picks up some pace it just keeps on getting better. The characters have deep personalities and each are unique and represent how different people react to different situations which is something that is present in Hunter X Hunter (2011) – the psychological factor.


 3  One Punch Man

One Punch Man is one of the funniest and most entertaining anime series. Even though it is a newly started anime, the first episode was highly anticipated throughout the anime community, and it was definitely golden in my eyes, with high quality animations and a hilarious story line.


 4  Detective Conan

This is probably THE most popular Manga-Anime on earth, not only Anime-Fans like it, but others as well. The Anime show revolves around a young boy by the name of Conan Edogawa. However, this is just the alias of 17-year-old Jimmy Kudo, Japan’s most famous young detective prodigy.


 5  Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu

This anime is more like playing game, when you lose and load savepoint, you try to use another tactic to win another approach – that’s how this story felt. Re:Zero has Two Halves… first is epic and made me shaking like a kiddo from excitement while watching with all those thrills.


 6  Sword Art Online II

While the overall story isn’t godlike or ground breaking, it does have a nice feeling to it overall. Three different arcs that cover several aspects. Gun Gale isn’t action packed but the new environment, mystery and suspense did add something new to the series. The first half talks about GGO in a detective way, while the second half is about ALO and talks about lose and the fight to find your path in life (something we are all doing).


 7  Boku no Hero Academia

This is a concept that has been done so many times; the idea of heroes and superpowers. But, My Hero Academia does it well. The idea of having superpowers is amazing. You will follow deku , a “quirkless” boy in a world of “super-power” to become the greatest hero ever.


 8  Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

High school students with magical abilities are a dime a dozen in anime these days, but this show made you care about the characters, and their magic was unique and interesting.


 9  Akame ga Kill!

Akame ga Kill is about a rebellion that tries to overcome a corrupt empire, which has been done so many time before, but what separates this series from everything else is the character development.


 10  Haikyuu!!

The show itself is pretty simple. It follows the adventures of a boys’ high school volleyball team, and it is a bit overdramatic at times, but it’s so much fun!! It’s hilarious, the characters are so easy to fall in love with, there’s no constant peril or evil overlord or magical powers.


 11  Shokugeki no Souma

The show itself is pretty simple. It follows the adventures of a boys’ high school volleyball team, and it is a bit overdramatic at times, but it’s so much fun!! It’s hilarious, the characters are so easy to fall in love with, there’s no constant peril or evil overlord or magical powers.


 12  Shingeki no Kyojin

The concept and story line of Shingeki no Kyojin are on point and keep you thrilled and wanting more. The only downside is the seven-day waiting for the next episode. Definitely one of the best anime I have seen.


 13  Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo Ghoul was perplexing with an interesting beginning and difficult ending to watch (you’ll see once you get there). Great acting all around, especially from its mains. Both Kubota and Shimizu play their parts well. Based on the best-selling supernatural horror manga by Sui Ishida, Tokyo Ghoul follows Ken Kaneki, a shy, bookish college student, who is instantly drawn to Rize Kamishiro.


 14  The Seven Deadly Sins

People love anime; there’s no curve-balling around that argument for me. It’s one of Japan’s finest contributions to the world of entertainment, and The Seven Deadly Sins is an entertaining albeit derivative piece of that ever-expanding yet established medium. Another high point in the series is the interaction between the various Sins till now, they are different from each other like ice and fire, but remain together with a strong both. This makes the lead the most impressive that he can manage such diverse powers and knit them in a group.


 15  Kuroko no Basket Popular anime

Very exciting anime, even epic at several points. All the basketball matches were full of excitement and very well animated. Plus the slow motion in some of the best moves by the players made is extremely efficient and building up the atmosphere in the matches. You really don’t want to miss this show.


 16  Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress

Although, I have to say one of the best things about this series is how there is no wasted time. Every episode has a purpose, a meaning. New concepts are introduced, explained, and executed in a fashion that doesn’t make you feel like your time watching is wasted.

It’s an excellent series, probably one of the top 5 so far this year.


 17  Ansatsu Kyoushitsu

The anime itself never gets boring. It is funny, very emotional and it even has plot twists you didn’t see coming. It has it all. Lovely characters, romance, bloodlust, secrets, tense music. Overall, it stays with you.


 18  Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu

Superb in so many ways.  Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu will you cry a few times. Profound, with great action, evocative incidental music, incredible plot, deeply moving. Something to look forward to if you haven’t seen it yet.


 19  Boku dake ga Inai Machi

Everything about this anime has a unique atmosphere which you can feel from the first episode. There is never a dull moment in this show as everything happens for a reason. A lot of people can relate to the situations in show as it touches a wide range of people’s upbringings/backgrounds: abused, rich, poor, lonely, popular, fulfilled yet lacking, etc.


 20  No Game No Life

No Game No Life is such a fun and extremely well thought out show, the concept is so basic and straight forward that you don’t think it could be portrayed so well. If your looking for something amazing to just take you out of this world on a fun, funny, amazing journey then your going to love this show.


 21  Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso is a beautiful anime, that expresses a lot of feelings most of us can’t express in words. It is an intresting anime which will make you imagine with anxiety of what would happen next.It revolves around the life of piano prodigy Arima Kousei whose life takes a turn after his mother’s death who is not able to play piano any further.


 22  Log Horizon

What makes Log Horizon stand above other animes with similar themes (i.e SAO and Accel World) is that it’s much more mature, focuses on the story , looks at the events from a strategic point of view , shows us what happens behind the curtains i.e the political side of the whole thing .


 23  Mirai Nikki (TV)

“Mirai Nikki” also known as “Future Diary” is a Japanese anime short film from 2010 and this one was the basis for a television series that followed shortly afterward. It is in the Japanese language, so maybe you will need subtitles if you don’t go for a dubbed version. The title already gives away that this is about a diary predicting the future .


 24  Death Note

Deat note is a great anime. It is all about Light Turner, a bright student, stumbles across a mystical notebook that has the power to kill any person whose name he writes in it. Light decides to launch a secret crusade to rid the streets of criminals. Watch it to know more about this anime.


 25  Ao no Exorcist

For all fans of demons, exorcism and action this should be on their must watch list. This series starts off with pretty interesting with decent fighting, demons, magic and a basic plot… but towards the midway point slows down with limited fighting and lots infighting between main characters with an ending much to be desired.


 26  Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!

An entertaining comedy fantasy anime. This is the kind of anime where you should not be worrying about the real storyline and focus more on the daily life from a band of misfit that working together to overcome every obstacle.


 27  Mob Psycho 100

Absolutely amazing fight scenes, very similar to One Punch Man. Awesome story as it is set in a world of psychics. The action scenes were TOP notch, it had LOTS of comedy.


 28  Beelzebub

Beelzebub is a story about a demon baby that has to go to earth in order to master his demon skills. With the help of a teenager called Oga Tatsumi Beelzebub must learn to be a demon lord. To Know more watch it.


 29  Hai to Gensou no Grimgar

Growth is always something that you will feel defines a good series. Seeing someone overcome a hardship, seeing them realize potential in themselves; these are the things that differentiate series that I lose interest in versus ones that keep me hooked.


 30  Toradora!

This is a unique story about love and friendship, how those too can conflict with one another and the results of valuing one over the other. It’s also about self discovery and acceptance of oneself, it will make you laugh and cry. Must Watch


 31  DanMachi

This anime has a pretty funky name, despite this it is pretty damn good. This series is a little reminiscent of SAO, but it has its own unique flair. There’s a lot to like about this show. It has humour, action, a good plot, interesting characters and great animation. To know the concept, must watch it


 32  Steins;Gate

If you are looking for an amazing anime, this is you call. You get in it from the first episode of this master piece. A perfect combination of comedy, romance, thriller and much more. Also remember to watch the special episode


 33  Overlord

With the main character following a less than perfect moral compass, the anime brings a rawness and practicability to the actions of the cast as they resolve the challenges set before them. The animation for this series is very good and flawless. The artwork is colorful and each of the character designs is very well done. Concept of creating a non human for the main lead is also fresh scene once in a while.


 34  Grisaia no Kajitsu

As shows go this one is pretty dark. While the overall tone is fairly light a lot of darker elements run below the surface with the story often dwelling off in those directions. A really good watch if angst, violence and some ecchi is your thing. A main part of the show comes from the colorful cast of characters.

There is one main guy (Yuuji) who is not the typical harem protagonist. He is very self-dependent and is able to maintain his cool in almost any situation.

In fact, he treats almost every situation intuitively while also possessing a good judgment and control. In short, Yuuji is the type of guy that thinks before he acts.


 35  Berserk (2016)

Nice berserk series with awesome action. This show continues the story of Berserk and is definitely for people who’ve seen the original 1997 animated series. It’s dark, grim and surprisingly funny for such as dystopian tale.


 36  ReLIFE

Well, the title says it all. A simple but powerful premise coupled with a well-written but not overly-complicated plot line. A good watch for someone who likes a thoughtful high school-centric easy-drama show without the need for tissues.

About the anime: it falls in to the category of comedy and slice of life.


 37  Fate/stay night

Fate/Stay Night is an animated series inspired by a h-game. It has a great story, interesting characters, and some of the best animation I’ve seen. It also has some great Japanese music in it too!


 38  Ajin

The concept behind this series is both interesting and entertaining, and to some extent it achieves its potential. The concepts that the characters struggle with are interesting and engaging, and the plot progression is well played out. Virtually everything about the production other than the dialogue is excellent.


 39  Rainbow

Rainbow is one of the greatest Children’s shows of all time it always had something new every week it helped kids learn about life and have fun at the same time. In fact it was as much fun for grown-ups as for tots. Rainbow is a fantastic character driven story chronicling the lives of seven inmates who became best friends. The show is not for the weak of heart but you can give it a try, you’ll be surprised how much you love it


 40  Clannad

Based on the visual novel of the same name, ‘Clannad’ tells the story of Tomoya Okazaki, a former basketball player who had been forced to quit his school team and all of basketball, and who’s now going through life aimlessly. Clannad was an anime that didn’t know what it wanted to be. It tried being a drama, romance, slice-of-life, and comedy all at the same time and just ended up becoming dumbed down.


 41  Another

It is highly recommend this Anime because, most Anime just don’t give you the feeling of investment in these characters. Characters are consistently sharply drawn and the backgrounds are lush with detail. The show’s few action sequences are fluidly animated. The dark artistic imagery, such as the show’s fixation upon dolls, fits the eerie tone well.


 42  One outs

It is not a simple work of entertainment, it is an entertaining anime that commands you to think. Each and every character has their own unique personality, with of course Tokuchi being the smartest man both off and on the baseball field. This show never really gets boring. You know Tokuchi is always going to win, but it doesnt matter, because seeing him in action is just too freakin awesome.


 43  Bakuman

This is one of the best animes out there. This anime explains a lot about being a mangakka, a seiyuu and it also walks you through the whole process. It is an incredible anime, a must see for anyone who wants to know how the world of manga is. The true meaning of the title was never revealed, but most speculators believe it’s short for ‘Bakuchi Manga’. (Gambling Manga). It is a simple tale of two middle school guys setting out to become professional manga artists.


 44  Barakamon

Enjoyable for everyone, from children to jaded adults, Barakamon seamlessly interweaves a TON of themes. Animation is quite good, and characters are extremely likable. Must watch this to check out the story of this anime. Watching Barakamon was like going to a birthday party or a picnic outdoors, chock full of excited children running all over the place, doing what they do best. Barakamon is a work of art. However, it’s more than just calligraphy as words alone cannot describe the exact nature and discovery of Barakamon. For instance, the show takes place on an island involving a young man named Seishuu Handa.


 45  My Teen Romantic Comedy: SNAFU

This was a fun anime with good deeps of the dark side/antihero perspective, entertaining comedy with some dark deeps. HIGHLY recommend this to those of you who are constantly in self-doubt and beating themselves up, this one will be one of your favourites! It is honestly one of the more contradictory and unique anime.


 46  91 Days

This series had a very dark back story and how the main character follows though to get revenge on the family that kill his family.

 49  Highschool of the Dead

Despite ecchi being the main focus in this anime, the story itself is well done; more than you could expect to be. The show is completely over the top as you’d expect; chock-full of scantily clad young women, tons of f-bombs, an exorbitant amount of blood, dismemberment. The characters are all very well developed and the story is very well written and keep’s you wanting to see more, the music plays on the right mood. To know more, Just watch it J

If you are into anime series that constantly keep you at the edge and do have a sense of realism and plausibility all through the story or ‘world’ that has been created, then this is for you. The story is that a lot of people, including the protagonist, find themselves on a deserted island where they are forced to play an exact real life version of a popular online game.
