passionate, exciting, invigorating
One Piece is one of my favorite series. Well-written characters, a well-composed, coherent world. One of the best shounen I have seen so far. The series also adds a refreshing comedy that appears there quite often. One Piece also has many unconventional themes, such as the SBS corner, which I wrote about in my review, among others.
One of my top favorite anime is Violet Evergarden. The anime really captivated me. I almost felt the passion and emotions of Violet herself. This is also thanks to the incredible animation style and soundtrack.
In general, I love anime that stand out a bit and have their own unique story and don’t repeat themselves like almost every isekai anime. And this is very well done with Violet Evergarden.
Act – Age is a manga showing off the dreams of Kei Yonagi, who wants to become an actress but facing a hard life by raising her two siblings alone (her parents died) so achieving her dream seems to be beautiful. In 123 chapters, Yonagi showed off her strong will fighting for her dream and getting being an actress. Even though the manga got cancelled, the arcs in Act – Age truly showed off what it means to fight for something and that living conditions doesn’t matter at all. Combining with amazing story telling and character developments, Act – Age is a manga showing off real passions and invigorating chapters.
Hajime no Ippo
Makunouchi Ippo, the story’s main character, become a boxer in order to answer one simple question: What does it mean to become strong?
Before starting Hajime no Ippo by a friend’s recommendation, I always was thinking that “Would I really like an anime about boxing?”. Now I understand how wrong I was. Hajime no Ippo is one of the most invigorating and energetic anime in my eyes right now. It is an anime that every single music, scene and match makes you want to watch it more and more until you finish the whole season. During all of the matches in anime I couldn’t stop feeling excited and hyped while wondering who will be the champion and be the strongest one
A Place Further Than the Universe
This anime along with Yuru Camp Holds top most place in my whole anime list. Original anime of MADHOUSE talks about 4 high school girls – Shirase, Mari, Hinata and Yuzuki who visit Antarctica. Their adventure trip full hurdles, troubles, and overcoming many such things makes so it exciting. Shirase’s dedication to go Antartica and that place is main focus of anime. Opening, Ending Songs and Visual makes it really great too. Anime is totally great. I had really fun watching it in 2018 along with Yuru Camp xD.
The series, as the name suggests, tells about the adventure of two brothers who want to fly into space. However, this is not a typical boring slice of life. Space Brothers is an incredibly good and underappreciated position that definitely needs more attention.
One of the most calming anime for me is Barakamon.
Even tho its a bit ago since I watched it the last time, I remember Barakamon as a very calm and peaceful anime. It was nice to watch after coming home from school or work and watch something very cute and chilled.
If you haven’t watched Barakamon yet, give it a try.
Yuru Camp / Super Cub
After deep sessions with Evangelion and Code Geass S2, I wanted to cool my head after 42346752 plot twists. So, I came across with Yuru Camp. A comfy Slice of Life featuring 5 girls camping around the Mount Fuji. Combining a very chilled and fun plot with a stunning animation showing off the wonderful side of japanese nature around Fuji-san, Yuru Camp wants you going to camp and enjoying life. I’m assuming that Yuru Camp is widely known for the comfiness, I want to mention an anime from the current Spring – Season: Super Cub, about a lonely girl coming across with a Honda Super Cub which she bought after getting her driving license. I did not catch up the whole anime yet (3 eps. behind sadge), but from what I’ve seen it definitely deserves more attention for being a relaxed and comfy anime.
Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge
Tanaka-kun is one of the first anime that comes to my mind, when someone mentions the words “calming”. It only deals with our listless main character Tanaka-kun and other people around him with a soothing way. Other than Tanaka-kun with his totally comfy life, my personal favorite character is Miyano who always remembers me of my bird – always cute and vivacious and blonde -. With everything it has Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge is the most peaceful and calming anime for me. Even thinking of it right now reminds me the fact that I should have been sleeping at the moment.
Non Non Biyori
Most Beautiful Scenes of nature which is so soothing ,characters which are fun to watch and makes everyone happy. Anime is really nice , slow pacing, captured with Nature’s beautifulness , and female characters like Renge – a girl in first grade, Hotaru – a girl comes to rural place from city, Komari and her sister Natsumi. Their small and cute scenes makes whole anime enjoyable. I liked when the anime gives you a virtual feeling of Nature with great OST, Openings , Endings and many things are great !! . It’s of the best Slice of Life anime which heals and cure everyone xD.
Clannad is my favorite anime when it comes to romance. Apart from the fact that I don’t really like watching romances, Clannad captivated me right away. The story is incredibly beautiful and heartbreaking. On top of that, the soundtrack is incredibly good (one of the best I’ve ever heard).
By the way, Clannad was my first anime and it was the one which made me to watch more anime ^^.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War
226 chapters filled with romance, comedy and many emotions, Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai Tensai-Taichi no Renai Zunousen is my choice for a romantic and caring Manga. I would take a step further and saying that it is the best romcom which ever existed. The setting is perfectly chosen with four (later 5) different protagonists in a student council being directed by Akasaka’s amazing storytelling combined with a very good art, which def. improved in 6 years. Showing off the pretty realism situations and topics from a teenager, combined with small and funny situation, Kaguya-sama is a great romcom with amazing and arcs which influenced the manga a lot. If you enjoyed the anime, go on with the manga and continue the amazing journey of the Shuchiin student council!
J-drama: Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu
Is marriage about love? Is it about having money? Is it about… No, no, this drama is not that deep.
It is so sad that even with a huge anime community nowadays nobody pays attention to Japanese dramas. And it is even sadder that none of the people who watch J-dramas, knows about that show. Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu is a great drama with a really warm plot about two unique main characters and funny romance scenes. As a show I watched 3 times until now, it also has one of the most interesting story according to me.
It is collections of short , sweet romantic stories which just cute and funny. Every episode cute couple have very sweet moments between them. One of the nice anime I watched back in 2016.
Charlotte was one of my first anime and I can still remember very well the first time I watched it.
In my opinion, an absolute masterpiece that is far too little appreciated.
A story about everyday school life with a touch of supernatural abilities. Nevertheless, the anime is also very emotional and impressive. Definitely worth watching.
Hibike! Euphonium is an anime taking about Kumiko Oumae, an euphonism, joining the brass band in high school where she met her former classmate from junior high school. Combined with beautiful visuals by KyoAni, Hibike! Is a great example that you must work hard to achieve something. Combined with the piece of competition, the Slice of Life showing off the relationship between the main protagonists, it makes you to become a part of the brass club and fighting for the nationwide competition.
Omoide no Marnie
Being lonely hurts sometimes, right? Anna is also a girl like millions on the earth who feel lonely and worthless at some points. However, a girl who she meets with during her vacation to countryside, changes her whole life. This movie reminds me of never giving up even at the times that nothing seems alright. Everybody is good in some ways and we never are alone in the world, in which more than 7 billion people are living.
Little Witch Academia
This one is of the best motivating anime from the anime I saw since beginning, It is story of Atsuko Kagari – who can’t use magic but one of the best character and her friends who all learns magic at top most level academia in their country or region. Atsuko faces many hurdles, its fun to see how she manages the things with no magic, but she never loses faith and inspiration got from magic show she saw when she was little. Good Openings and Endings , best female lead, Impressive story which gives motivations till the anime ends.
Detective conan has its pros and cons. If you are interested in a powerful dose of action that practically does not end, considering the length of this anime, it will definitely interest you. Very good character development and plot twists. It’s true, we have to wait a while for the main story, but it’s worth it.
Terror in Resonance
Terror in Resonance is one of the best mystery anime for me. The story is dark, the soundtrack is wonderful and the animation is really nice.
Two boys who want to show the world what secret machinations the governments have on children.
The story is really heartbreaking and incredibly beautiful.
Oyasumi Punpun. Everyone who read the manga knows what I’m talking about. Oyasumi Punpun is taking place in Punpun Onodera’s life. By showing the harsh and brutal reality in Tokyo, you’ll experience many negative things about society and relationship between humans. It will make you for sure depressive or giving you thoughts about your current life. I don’t want to say much more otherwise I’d spoil everything out.
Black is a mysterious, complicated and very thrilling Korean drama about two main characters who try save others from people who always look out after their own benefits. For more information and opinions about it here is our review waiting you to read it. (Review by Dxvxdffm)
The anime is just awesomely packed with lots of Mysteries which are interesting to solve, characters with great thinking and beautiful quotes, System which measure crime coefficient (haha!!), tough situations where system fails to justify and fights , actions which is greatly animated. Impressed by how the whole anime gives you a thrilling experiences. Characters like Kougami Shinya and Makishima Shogo are the main focus. The anime comes with e beautiful OST, one of the best Openings and Endings. I watched this anime twice and its one of my favorite anime.
Xian Wang De Richang Shenghuo
Even though I had to get used to the Chinese language in an anime, I have to say that the anime surprised me in a positive way. The animation is partly a bit strange, but somehow it also makes the anime.
The story is quite simply summarized around someone who is superhumanly strong, so strong that he could wipe out the entire world if he really wants it.He is quite cold and lazy, but this changes after he meets the most popular girl in school.
Apart from the rather simple story, the anime is always open for a surprise and has often thrilled me.
[Oshi No Ko]
[Oshi No Ko] is a manga by Aka Akasaka and Mengo Yokoyari combining Act – Age, idols and the amazing story telling by Akasaka. I also cannot say much to the plot, but I can say for sure it’s interesting and for sure Akasaka will make the maximal potential of the story. What makes the manga so special and unexcepted is the combination of the “genres”. You have idols (which is not that popular at all), acting (Act – Age) but in the meantime drama and psychological topics. The mixture of such different makes the story so special and interesting, so give it a try if you want something new!
Suddenly Became A Princess One Day
The manhwa I would even read for the art style of dresses and character’s eyes. As one of the first manhwas I read, Suddenly Became A Princess One Day has a really special way in my eyes. It opened the doors of a fantastic world full of isekai/romance manhwas which I never thought I would love so much.
The most amazing aspect of this manhwa up to me is the art style for sure. Other than perfect character designs, every single background and fashion plate is carefully drawn with vivid colors and impressive angle of view. Despite the fact that last chapters are a little bit boring compared to first ones, Suddenly Became A Princess One Day is a comic which would give fresh and different vibes to everyone.
This anime is really great , At start of it I didn’t expected, but as episodes progressed, I was really surprised to see that how I was really curious to watch it , It was really a new topic “Camping” or anime theme like Camping which I didn’t saw till that point of my anime list progress. It just gives the beautiful trip, how you can camp on the camp site places from which you can see beautiful Mount Fuji. Anime have five girls Nadeshiko , Rin, Ena, Aoi and Chiaki’s who goes to camping towards the end of the anime. Rin’s solo camping, Equipments fo camping, and How Nadeshiko and others develop curiousity to go on Camp. This anime made me really wanted to go out to camping xD . One of the best anime to watch.
Lore from eve songs
Eve is my favorite japanese singer. His songs not only sound nice but they also have a deeper meaning to them. There’s a whole lore on the internet and it’s really interesting and well made. Eve’s talent definitely deserves more attention even if he is pretty popular at the moment
Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle
Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle is the perfect anime when it comes to cuteness, in my opinion. The story is quite simple, a kidnapped princess is held captive in the castle. However, the bed is not comfortable and so the princess goes searching for fluffy items to upgrade her bedroom.
An incredibly sweet story that is great to watch in the evening just to chill out a bit.
Cuteness. I could mention Nekopara but that would cause too much confusion. So, I decided to choose 未体験 Horizon because I really like this song. In general, Aqours is always trying to show off their cuteness in the group songs by wearing beautiful and extraordinary outfits. I would say that the one from 未体験 Horizon is my favorite, because this outfit shall “represent” a butterfly and butterfly are known as wonderful or cute. I do not think I have to tell something about the song itself because you either love idols or hate them. The visuals are pretty good and the CGI on point.
In my opinion, it wouldn’t really be wrong to define K-On as the queen of slice of life and goddess of CGDCT (Cute Girls Doing Cute Things). Since we chose “cuteness” as the theme of white color, I don’t have an another anime to pick for this category in my mind. With all of the adorable characters and every single action they do, K-On is a perfectly cute anime according to a lot of slice of life anime lovers. I personally would like to be in their club room every day vibing with them and especially eating all these cakes and strawberries. ≧◡≦
Beelzebub-jou no Okinimesu mama
Its one of the few anime I liked, the anime itself is so fluffy and cute that it makes me so happy. Story revolves around Great Demon Beelzebub-jou – she is so cute that it feels like she is not demon what we expect and likes small fluffly creatures which is roams everywhere in her demon castle , Mullin – Her attendant who highly respects Beelzebub-jou , Belphegor – another cute looking character and friend of Beelzebub and many other such characters. The narrator of the anime, how she narrates the story is one of the best thing I liked too. OP, ED, OSTs are really good. It focuses on the relationship between the Mullin and Beelzebub-jou which comes cuteness, comedy and fun. Overall it’s really a good anime which is gives you dose of cuteness, fluffiness to cure your painful feeling xD.
