Anime fans surely know these series, but this list is made even for those who do not usually see Japanese animations.
Anime is such a wide and diverse genre that there are series for all tastes. That’s why it’s better not to get scared and look for those that really interest you. But among all, there are some classics that never go out of fashion and we recommend you see.
Here are some anime series to see at least once in a lifetime.
11. Cowboy Bebop
The crew of a ship travels through space trying to get rewards and trade in various places. The characters are different from each other, and the relationships between them mark the plot. Cowboy Bebop was an internationally successful and marked a highly valued spatial genre, in addition to its incredible soundtrack.
10. Death Note
We all got in a bad mood some fanatic over this series, but that doesn’t mean the story is bad. On the contrary, Death Note presented a very innovative concept, with research, complex characters and borderline situations. It’s all about a notebook where you write down the names of the people you want to kill, and it actually happens. And of course let’s not forget the Shinigami and all the strange things that can happen.
9. Mobile Suit Gundam Wing
The Gundam Saga also has other series like Gundam Seed, but the best will always be Gundam Wing. If you love giant robots, teen pilots with emotional conflicts and a complex political history, this series will enchant you.
8. Attack on Titan
The interesting thing is that this series is not as old as the rest, but managed to capture a massive audience. It is about a group of Titans, some enormous beings that devoured the majority of the human population. For a hundred years people took refuge, but now they are suffering new attacks.
7. Fullmetal Alchemist
For many it was one of the series that introduced us to the world of anime, and that showed us that emotions do not have to go separate from the action. These two brothers see themselves in trouble when they decide to revive their mother through alchemy. No doubt it is an emotional and profound story and will keep you glued to the screen.
It is a series with a medieval ambience, which follows the story of a mercenary. It’s another example of how interesting stories don’t have to be separated from the action. It is striking especially for those who do not mind a little violence in the scenes.
It is one of the strangest romantic stories you can see, and in turn is a very famous series for several reasons. The aesthetic is one of them, because it was created by the CLAMP group, who tends to be very careful with the clothing. On the other hand, the stories of female robots in love are not few, but this in particular is the most attractive. If you like short but intense series, we recommend it.
4. Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z
These two series are fundamental for anyone, whether or not anime fanatics. Even many of us have seen it as children, when we didn’t even have an approach to Japanese animation. Without a doubt, history can be long, but for some reason we can’t stop seeing Goku fighting villains from other planets.
3. Neon Genesis Evangelion
The story doesn’t seem so original to the naked eye, because there are several series of teenage robot pilots. However, the psychological and emotional content of Neon Genesis Evangelion transformed it into a classic anime. That yes, we recommend you pay attention and take for granted that it is a strange group of characters.
Monster is one of the series that not everyone has seen, but of which I recommend most. Especially because it moves away a bit of the supernatural to enter a field of research, suspense and drama. Even those who are not anime fanatics can find in Monster a story developed to perfection.
1. Rurouni Kenshin
Also known as Samurai X by some of us, is a series that has everything. Kenshin shows us honor, kindness, but also bravery and friendship. If you are interested in funny characters or well developed this series has them. There is also romance and some of the most memorable battles of the anime.
