In Honor of National Anime Day, Here Are 5 Animes to Watch Right Now


Anime is getting bigger and bigger and as gaming continues to grow, we will likely see anime get bigger as well. It's an interesting phenomenon because they aren't directly related.

Today is National Anime Day, so if you're a fan or just looking to get into the genre, you'll need some great shows and movies to watch. We've compiled five of our favorites, and we want to stress that this list is not ranked at all but is just for people who want to get into anime and want to know what to watch.

1. 'Attack On Titan'

 Attack on Titan, the Anime, premiered in 2013 with the final episodes coming within the next year or so. I think it's safe today that AOT is probably the best new-gen anime out there. Well written, great production, and just storytelling out of this world, this show just packs a punch. It is set in a world where humanity lives inside cities surrounded by three enormous walls that protect them from the gigantic man-eating humanoids referred to as Titans.

2. 'Full Metal Alchemist'

Full Metal Alchemist is probably one of the most story-oriented anime and has some amazing fight scenes.

The show excels at creating emotional attachments to the many characters such as the brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric.

In the show, the brother's defy this world's law of science by finding the philosopher's stone and using alchemy to bring their mother back to life.

3. 'Jujutsu Kaisen'

The newest and hottest out of the five, Jujutsu Kaisen just might be the anime that brings a more general audience into the anime world.

Jujutsu Kaisen is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Gege Akutami. The anime does a fantastic job blending action, horror, and adventure with its outstanding animation from studio MAPPA.

4. 'Demon Slayer'

In my opinion, Demon Slayer is the most underrated on this list. Demon Slayer (the Manga) is illustrated beautifully, so it's no surprise that the Anime is just as eye-catching. The show starts with a young boy finding his family slaughtered and his sister being turned into a demon, thus beginning his journey to fight the very monsters that robbed him of his loved ones.

5. 'Death Note'

Death Note and Attack on Titan are actually both made by the great Japanese animator Tetsuro Araki. For fans of Attack on Titan, you should watch Death Note as well as it is another masterpiece. The story follows a young teen genius who finds a book that gives him the ability to kill anyone just by writing it down.
