Top Isekai Anime 2019

Are you a fan of transport to another world anime? Here is a list of the top Isekai anime 2019.


The Rising of the Shield Hero

Date aired: Jan 9, 2019 to Jun 26, 2019

The anime is the story of 4 heroes from modern Japan summoned to another world where their kingdom is troubled by Waves of Catastrophe. Among these 4 heroes is our main character Naofumi. Though being a hero is already great in itself and is what you would most likely want in a new place, the slight problem is that he doesn’t have any weapon. He became known as the shield hero.

It all started when Naofumi was in a library finding some light novels to read. which is his usual practice. If he is not at home, he goes out to the library. Here, he found a book about 4 heroes saving a kingdom. As he continues to browse the pages, a light suddenly engulfs the area and he was sent to another world.

It’s quite interesting to see how our shield hero would be able to help the Kingdom deal with its problems. As Naofumi learns about the place, he also experiences the challenges of getting a shield instead of a real weapon.

Some of the good parts of The Rising of the Shield Hero are its interesting characters especially Naofumi and its unusual story. When it comes to animation and overall visual effects, we could give this anime good praise. Certainly worth watching for isekai fans. This anime is also among the best anime 2019.


Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun

Date aired: Oct 5, 2019

I personally think that this anime is pretty fun to watch. The story is about our main character Iruma who got sold to a demon by his irresponsible parents. The good part is that instead of being eaten by the demon, he was made the demon’s grandson.

He was sent to a demon school. This is where all the fun happens since everyone in the school are demons except for Iruma. So his new granddad has to do everything in order to keep his secret that Iruman is indeed human.

The art is beautiful, the sound is not that great but still well done for me. The characters are really fun to watch. You will surely have a good laugh every episode of this in another world anime.


Magi’s Grandson

Date aired: Apr 10, 2019 to Jun 26, 2019

Our main character here is a typical office worker who usually ends up working even past working hours. One day, in his usual schedule of staying late in his work, its time to go home and while on the street he met an accident and died. He was reincarnated in another world were people could use magic.

At a young age of 8, Shin Wolford could now use magic. He is a grandson of a famous magician in their place, also considered a hero – Merlin Wolford. Shin could not just use magic, at a very young age its surprising how he could easily learn everything that Merlin teaches him. He seems to have a natural gift with using magic and also have high skills when it comes to martial arts.

Upon arriving in the right age, he is enrolled in a magic academy where his journey will start. Kenja no mago is the story of Shin in his high school life learning more about life and being with friends. Plus, dealing with demons in and around the city.

 


Cautious Hero: The Hero Is Overpowered but Overly Cautious

Date Aired: Oct 2, 2019 to Dec 27, 2019

Probably among the best isekai 2019. I was even more impressed after watching the last episode of this anime. The story is about our protagonist Ryuuguuin, Seiya who was summoned to another world by a Goddess known as Ristarte. Seiya is a very strong and powerful heor but a very cautious one. And we can safely say that Ristarte is quite a useless Goddess that is why he needed the help of a hero.

Their journey is to save the world from 4 demon lords. It’s not as serious as The Rising of a Shield Hero, it’s more on the Sitcom Comedy side. The art is good enough and the animation is not that bad as well. Nothing to complain about this part.

The Cautious Hero has an excellent sound effect and opening theme. And I would give it a 9/10 when it comes to the characters. If you are looking for a fun isekai anime to watch, you’ve already found one.


Demon Lord, Retry!

Date Aired: Jul 4, 2019 to Sep 19, 2019

Demon Lord, Retry! is not that great but good enough for me. What’s special about this anime is its fun to watch. Though you would not appreciate much its characters and animation, the good thing is it could leave you with a good laugh. Which is better compared to seeing a serious type of anime with a very poor animation.

If you are expecting something as epic as Overlord, you will surely be disappointed. However, if you are simply looking for an isekai anime that you could enjoy watching in your free time, you’re probably for a good ride.

The story is about a game developer who was suddenly transported to a game world. He became a character that he had created. His journey centers around saving lolis and taking them under his wing. This another world anime is worth watching.


Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?!

Date Aired: Oct 7, 2019 to Dec 23, 2019

This anime is a good isekai anime. The main characters von Ascham, Adele, Reina, Pauline and Mavis are fun and entertaining to watch. The character designs are not that excellent but not too bad as well.

The story is about Misato Kurihara who is not your typical person since she stood out most of the time. Everything in life is quite easy for her. However, she encountered a sudden death and was transported to another world.

Before being reincarnated in a new world, she was granted one wish. With this, she wished to experience and ordinary life – we wanted to be an average person. So she was reborn as von Ascham. Did the gods granted her wish? It’s for you to find out.


Do you love your mom and her two-hit multi-target attacks

Date aired: Jul 13, 2019 to Sep 28, 2019

This anime is about the unlikely journey of Masato and his mom Mamako in the world of fantasy online game. I think it is the first that we will see a mother involved in an Isekai anime. Though being in a game world is what most teenager gamers dream of, being accompanied by their mom is a different story.

Everything happened so fast. In a normal day, he was just trying to fill-up a survey by the government. A woman came to their home and after a few introductions did something to his computer, then suddenly Masato suddenly finds himself in a tunnel of light going inside a game.

The only thing I don’t like about this anime is the harem setup. I personally am not a fan of fan service, so I don’t appreciate too much harem. Aside from this, I am also not quite impressed with the animation and design. The animation reminds me of Isekai Cheat Magician.

 


High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even In Another World

Date Aired: Oct 3, 2019 to Dec 19, 2019

This anime is about a group of Japanese students who are considered prodigies due to their unbelievable talents. Each member of the group specializes in a different field. The students from Japan were sent to another world where they help in dealing with various issues. And due to their talents/skills, they are considered as the hope of this new world they got transported to.

I continued to watch this anime mainly because of the excellent character design of the female characters and good animation. When it comes to its plot/story, I think it falls short on this part. I’ll consider Choyoyui as an average isekai anime.


 

Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest

Date Aired: Jul 8, 2019 to Oct 7, 2019

The story of Arifureta revolved around a high schooler named Hajime Nagamo who got transported to another world together with his classmates. Our protagonist Hajime is an every date otaku so being summoned to another world is somewhat a dream come true.

In the new world, they were considered heroes and are expected to save the human race. Everything seems so cool aside from the fact that Hajime is the weakest in the group. Thus, he is often bullied for being weak.

Everything changed for him when they went on training at a Labyrinth. What happened on the Labyrinth? It’s something that you have to discover.


Isekai Cheat Magician

Date Aired: Jul 10, 2019 to Sep 25, 2019

Yes, from the name itself this is another Isekai anime. What I did find a unique feature right of the bat is the fact that the male protagonist was sent to another world together with a female partner.

Right on the first episode, you’ll see how OP our main characters are – Rin and Taichi. Some may hate this concept but I know others will find it interesting. It was interesting for me so I have watched until the 5th episode. What decided me to stop watching this anime is its poor animation. I guess it would have been a good one if the character designed were well done and animation is good. It’s what most fans would look for in an isekai anime.

So yeah, if there are other options to choose from, I do not suggest watching this anime. I decided to include it in this isekai anime list since it was quite promising but just did not live up to the expectation of many.

So there you go, these are the top isekai anime 2019 that you might want to watch if you are a fan of this type of anime.

 

I Hate Being in Pain so I Think I’ll Make a Full Defense Build

One of my favorite anime so far is I hate being in pain so I think I’ll make a full defense build. Yes, I know your first thought, what a wild title. I could not even understand how they were able to carefully came up with this long title. Well, don’t be fooled, since this anime is a good one. 

I actually did not try watching it when I first saw the anime in the thumbnails and got more interested in other anime like Plunderer and Darwin’s Game. But, then after watching all its 5 episodes so far, I think this would be a great anime to watch. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for an anime 2020 to watch.

And before I forget, if you do not want to use the long title, you could also call the anime as “Bofuri”. It’s already the preferred title on twitter. 


Story

This anime is about the journey of Kaede as she plays the VRRMO game called New World Online. Though is not the type of person who is addicted to this kind of game, she made the decision to give it a try due to her persistent friend Risa. She started the game on her own then her friend Risa followed afterward. Her name in the game is Maple.

I think that the title itself would somehow give you an idea of what the story is all about. The main character does not want to get hurt so he decided to allocate all his game points to defense. Usually, to start an online game you allocate points evenly on your stats then slowly decide which one to focus on in the latter parts. 

The case of the main character is definitely something that most tankers can relate to. Though I do not play that much online game, when I do, I also go for the tank build since my brother places most of his points to Agility, giving him so much damage.

 

 


Is it an Isekai Anime?

Yes, since our main characters are mostly in a different world, this could be considered as an Isekai Anime. However, it’s not the same as other famous isekai anime where the main characters were trapped in the game or in another world. Here, people who are playing the game could log in and logout without issues. 

But, we still don’t know what would happen in this anime since so far, it still has 5 episodes aired. So maybe there could be a twist in the future episodes. That we don’t know and one thing we should watch out for. It’s not impossible, right?

And so far, in most popular isekai, the main character is male. In BOFURI I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense, it’s a she – a female loli. This makes the anime cute while still being exciting and fun to watch.


Is the Main Character OP?

Yes, in this anime, BOFURI – Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu, the main character Maple is OP right from the beginning. Due to his overwhelming capability, the admins of the game decided to run an update to present Maple from becoming too strong which might affect the e is Devour skill and Total Defense is pretty useful. And now that i have come to think about it, the beginning story is somehow similar to Reincarnated as a Slime anime where the main character started somewhat weak. For maple, its because he decide to be on full defence. However, they slowly realize how powerful their acquired skills are which helps them easily outpower opponents.


Anime Genre

Fantasy-based Isekai, Action, Comedy, Adventure and Sci-Fi 


Itai no wa iya nanode Characters

Maple

Maple is our main character and her name in the real world is Kaede. Since she’s a newbie, she decided to max her defense in order to avoid getting hurt. And for her first item, of course, she got a shield. 

Even though Maple doesn’t want to get hurt or to feel pain, she doesn’t hesitate to protect his friends in times of need. She shields them from being hit by a powerful attack.

The best trait of Maple is she’s pretty friendly that is why asking other players regarding some parts of the game was not that hard for her. She doesn’t think about levels. When she needs to know something she asks.

Sally

Sally is a great pair for Maple since Sally is an attack type. She is also a main character in this anime. Mapple and Sally are best friends in real life so its not a surprise for them to complement each other. Since Maple is in full defense, she relies on Sally to do most of the critical hits. But this does not mean that Maple can’t attack. You’ll need to see the anime to discover how powerful she is when it comes to attacking.

Aside from attacks, Sally also has a very useful skill which is “heal”. This is quite useful whenever Maple gets some damage. This just shows that their duo is very much effective.

Iz

Iz is a supporting character. She is an expert when it comes to making weapons like swords and shields.  

Other Supporting Characters

Yui

  • May
  • Kasumi
  • Kuromu
  • Kanade

Animation and Soundtrack

I think the animation for this anime is totally great. The character design is on point and very colorful. I have no complains with the design, animation and even the sound track. This just shows how I love this anime. And I’m pretty sure many would also be intereste.


Episode 4

If ever you are the different type and found the first 3 episodes as boring or something that is usual, I highly suggest you watch until Episode 4 and decide from there if you want to continue watching or not. I bet you will definitely check out episode 5.

There are important things that were introduced in Episode 4 that made this anime look more interesting and unique. I have become pretty much excited on what would come in the next episodes. The developers also did a great job of ending each episode with something that would make you look forward to the next one.


Conclusion

Though I really love this anime so far, I also think that there is nothing epic to it so far. Just your typical MMO game anime where the characters go on an adventure, use their powers, skills then rank up. However, it’s definitely fun to watch. 

It’s unique and not the same as other serious isekai anime like SAO or Log Horizon. This one is more centered on the fun part of gaming anime.

Darwin’s Game

Darwin’s Game is an anime series that was launched in January 2020 and is definitely a must-watched. The very first thing that you’ll notice in this anime is its 40 min. first episode. I personally think it was a good decision by the creators since it gave me more time to really appreciate the anime. After around 20 mins. of watching, I have this feeling that this anime would be big. Of course, it still depends on what would unfold in the following episodes. There is definitely a lot of exciting anime 2020 and Darwin’s Game is definitely among them.


Story

The anime is about a mysterious game called Darwin’s Game. I will not dive into the details of the game to avoid any spoilers. So once you enter the game, you can play with other players. However, this is not your typical friendly game since there is a high reward and of course a very high risk.

Upon entering that game, you will be given a certain skill or power and it’s called Sigil. For example, one Sigil could let you manipulate plants, water, fire, make you disappear and a lot more. So you’ll be able to get one. The more you get used to using your Sigil, the more powerful you become.

Before we continue, check out their anime trailer:


Main Characters

The main characters in this anime series are Shuka and Kaname. Shuka is already a veteran in the game and has a very powerful sigil. She is able to use it naturally. Kaname will be our newbie protagonist who just entered the game and is doing his best to survive.

Shuka

I like the mysterious character of Shuka. There seems to be something deep in her that you could see through her eyes. Aside from the nice red outfit she wears, her personality is also captivating. She remains calm in every situation and is very confident when it comes to dealing with opponents.

Kaname

On the other hand, Kaname is somehow the opposite of Shuka. He doesn’t want any fight and as much as possible try to avoid any unwanted situations that would put him at risk. He also has a powerful Sigil but he still has a long way to master it. It’s interesting to see the development of Kaname as the anime progresses. To give you an idea, Kaname’s Sigil lets him get in his hand anything that he would think of, as long as he has touched or seen that certain thing already. Looks like insane right? But of course, it has some limitations which is something that you need to find out yourself. So go watch this anime now.

 


Anime Genre

This anime falls mainly to the fictional game genre with a serious theme. But, though it a serious anime, it still has some good light moments. Since most of the characters here have powers, so you could also categorize it as an anime with supernatural power and action.


Animation and Soundtrack

I would say the developers did a great job on the soundtrack of this anime. It simply makes watching more exciting. Plus it has a nice opening and ending song theme.

The overall animation is quite good as well. It makes the action more interesting to watch. If I rate animation as 8/10, I would say the characters are 7/10. I personally did not fight the character design outstanding. It does not have a feeling that would make it stand out among the other new anime series this year compared to Plunderer.

Episode 1 was thrilling enough for me to watch the whole 40 mins and to continue watching until the current 5th episode.


Overall 8/10

I would highly recommend you watch this anime if you are looking for an anime to watch this 2020. It has an interesting concept, nice animation, and a great story so far. The developers were also able to successfully make this anime fast pace, without overdoing it. The pacing is good and every episode has something new to offer.

Best Martial Arts Anime 2019

Action is a popular genre in anime and under this category, is martial arts anime. If you are looking for a new anime to follow in this genre, then you have landed on the right page. We have listed the best martial arts anime of 2019 below.


Kengan Ashura Season 1 and 2

Aired: Jul 31, 2019

Topping our list would be Kengan Ashura – a Netflix anime. This martial arts anime has the same feel as Baki where experts in various martial arts disciplines gather to compete and settle business. 

The main difference with Baki is that the fighters in Kengan Ashura meet in the area to fight to settle issues of wealthy merchants. Aside from this, they are just closely similar in terms of action, martial arts, level of violence and bloody fights.

Our main character in this anime is Ouma Tokita who aims to be crowned as the strongest. Of course, this is not something that he could easily attain since he had to face other characters who are the strongest in their field. 


Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Aired: April 6, 2019 to Sept. 28, 2019

Another popular martial art anime of 2019 is Demon Slayer. It’s the story of Tanjirou and Nezuko as they continue to live after the death of their family. To make matters worse for Tanjirou, Nezuko was infected by the demon that killed his family. But though Nezuko is already a demon, he is not the same as the other demons that devour human flesh.

Tanjiro is doing his best to bring back his little sister back to her normal life. Along his journey, he will meet friends that would help him achieve his goal. 

It’s an anime that you wouldn’t want to miss because of its nice animation and interesting characters. Every fight scene in this anime is worth your time. It only took me a couple of days to finish watching it. 


Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation 2

Aug. 3, 2019 to Aug. 31, 2019

The very first reason I fell in love with this anime is its animation. Considering that its a martial arts anime, a great animation would certainly make it a great anime to watch. Then after watching several episodes, I realized there are a lot of positives about this anime.

Number one is its story. Though there are a lot of flashbacks in the episodes I have watched so far, I think it’s important to establish the entire story. Plus, they were able to supplement it with action-packed scenes.  

Second, the characters are very interesting including the supporting casts. You can easily tell them apart. Our main protagonist here is Wei Wuxian who is very fun to watch and always has an outgoing personality.

Overall all, the art, animation and soundtrack are all good making it a good anime to watch. And mind you, some are even calling it a masterpiece. The moment you start watching it, you’ll get hooked.

 

 


Mugen no Juunin: Immortal

Blade of the Immortal

Aired: Oct 10, 2019

This anime is the story of Manji who is an immortal swordsman. Though to some being immortal might be a gift, but it is actually a curse given to him by an old witch. In order to lift the curse, he must go on a journey to kill a thousand evil men. 

On his journey, he met a girl, Rin who is also on a path to seek vengeance on the murder of his entire family. 


The Demonic King Who Chases His Wife

Xie Wang Zhui Qi

Date Aired: Jan. 24, 2019 to April 11, 2019

 

 

This anime is based on a popular novel that is why many are many anime fans have been looking forward to it. The story revolves around a renowned assassin who became the Fourth Miss of the empire. She was married to the imperial highness who is an emotionless tyrant with incomparable talents.  

So as you can see, both have their level of stubbornness. This chaser and chased story would certainly entertain you since their love story is just something unique and unusual.

Among the things that I liked about this anime is its amazing art. Most Chinese anime I have watched so far has great art and nice animation. Plus, it has a very interesting plot which would make you want to continue watching it. And the main and supporting characters are quite interesting as well.

What makes me sad though is the short time per episode, it would have been much better if it’s the same as the usual time for an anime episode.


Martial Universe – Chinese Anime

Wu Dong Qian Kun

Date aired: Jan 27, 2019 to Apr 7, 2019

 

 

The Martial Universe anime is the story of Lin Dong as he sets on a journey to regain the glory of his family. He vowed to get vengeance on the person who is the reason why their family is left with nothing. Everything changed when he stumbles upon a mysterious stone talisman.

To those who have read the novel, this anime is an awesome adaptation of the novel. It has a great story and the team was able to do a solid job on the character designs and overall animation. I have started watching the anime and have I have loved it so far.  


Da Zhu Zai / The Grand Lord

Aired: Aug. 7, 2019 to Oct. 17, 2019

 

 

This anime is also known as The Great Ruler. It is set up in a place where many are aiming to become the Great Ruler. The place is inhabited by people in different clans and these clans are ruled by their own Lord. This is a Chinese anime with nice animation and character design.


Levius – Netflix

This anime is the story of young Levious as he tries to survive in a time where cybernetically augmented fighters get into the area to box. This boxing sports anime will surely captivate you since it has been a long time since we had this type of anime. 

This mechanical martial art is very popular in the country and Levious is aiming to be on top.


Tenka Hyakken: Meiji-kan e Youkoso!

The Tenka Hyakken franchise centers around the “Mitsurugi,” maidens who are physical incarnations of ancient swords. They have pledged to live peaceful lives after the era of warfare, but are now returning to battle to fight a new foe that has arisen during an alternate version of the Meiji Era, three hundred years after the Battle of Sekigahara. 

 


Battle Through The Heavens 3

Doupo Cangqiong 3rd Season

Date aired: July 21, 2019 to Sept. 29, 2019

If watching a Chinese anime does not bother you, then this is a good watch. When it comes to art, character designs and animation, I would give this anime a rating of 8/10 for Season 3. I usually like how Chinese anime is made in general. It has already reached its 3rd Season and most are saying that every season this anime is improving.  

You’ll enjoy watching this anime if you are into magic, action and martial arts.

 


Ikkitousen: Western Wolves

Date aired: Jan. 3, 2019 to Feb. 27, 2019

New Martial Arts Anime To Watch

A lot of us anime fans love action and fight scenes, this is the reason why most of us love to watch anime in the martial arts genre. Below, is a list of New Martial Arts Anime that you might want to watch.


Majutsushi Orphen Hagure Tabi

Started airing: January 7, 2020

This anime is also known as Sorcerous Stabber Orphen. It’s a remake of the original anime which was aired 1998-1999. This anime is the story of Orphen who is considered as the best sorcerer in their class at the Tower of Fang. He is on a journey to bring back her sister Azalie to her true form. The problem is he is not the only one who is looking for his sister. Others want her death due to the kind of monster she has become.

The anime looks promising for a magic anime with martial arts. You can expect it to be action-packed. Sorcerous Stabber Orphen has a cool main character and some interesting supporting characters as well. Though this kind of story is not anymore new, which could be because of how old this novel/anime is, it certainly does not make it less interesting.

 


Kengan Ashura 2nd Season – Netflix

Started Airing: October 31, 2019

When we talk about new martial arts anime, Kengan Ashura would certainly be among the most popular. Maybe because it has a big resemblance to Baki the Grapper. Since I am a big fan of Baki, this anime caught my attention and I have loved all the bloody fight scenes it offered.

So when you are looking for an anime with a high level of martial art fights, then watch this anime. It has lots of heavy punching, throwing of bodies, kicks, broken ribs, bones and bloody as hell.

Considering that it is similar to Baki the Grapper, expect that you would see a lot of different martial arts styles in this anime. After the successful season 1, you’ll certainly be more entertained with Season 2 where the main character has become more matured, much better and stronger than ever.

 

 


Mugen no Juunin: Immortal – Amazon Prime Video

Started Airing: October 10, 2019

This anime is also known as Blade of the Immortal. It is the story of Manji who is a samurai cursed to have eternal life. He is now on a journey to experience death and has to meet a certain condition to achieve this.

On his journey, he met a girl named Rin. She would need the help of Manji in order to avenge the death of her family in the hands of a group of Samurai. They found themselves traveling together in hopes of finding fulfillment in their life.

If you are into bloody anime with a lot of blade fights, this is the anime you are looking for. Since it involves samurai, expect it to have a lot of exciting fight scenes which involve cutting off arms, heads and other parts of the body.

 

 

 


Tenka Hyakken: Meiji-kan e Youkoso!

Started Airing: October 13, 2019

 

 

The story of this anime is unique revolving around maidens who are physical incarnations of ancient swords. And since the Era of war is over, they must now try to live a happy and peaceful life.

Though it would certainly be hard to live a peaceful life as they are now faced with a new foe. This story of swords and maidens would certainly captivate you with their kawaii looks. There are a lot of interesting characters in this anime so watching it would certainly be fun. Plus the character design is well made which is a big bonus.

If you love to watch fighting maidens, then you definitely should watch this.

 


Levius – Netflix

Started Airing: December 2019

 

 

Rejoice mecha anime fans. This anime Levius by Netflix would certainly be something to consider watching. Many of the people who were able to watch it guarantees that you’ll also love it so try giving it a shot.

The anime is set in the time after the war which is considered as the Era of Rebirth. In this time, cybernetically augmented fighters are popular especially when you are looking for fame or fortune. The fighters involved in this battle have turned their bodies into a fighting machine.

Our main character Levius is among these fighters whose only purpose for joining is for his love for the sport of boxing. This martial arts anime uses CGI animation which might be good for others and not that good to some. It depends on your preference.

You’ll certainly love rooting for Levius as he starts from the bottom slowly climbing to the top. And of course, the path was not easy as he faces a lot of strong foes along the way. Since it’s boxing, expect a lot of nice action scenes in this anime.

Plunderer

Date Aired: January 9, 2020

 

 

Plunderer is an anime series that is set up in a world ruled by numbers. So basically, everyone has a goal of keeping their number or better known as “count” high as it also indicates their social status. The higher your number is the higher your status in society. Also, a high number could also mean better skills and more power. Sadly, when your number becomes 0, you will be sent to the Abyss. 

The main characters in this anime are Hina and Licht. Both are interesting characters and definitely, their story would be exciting to watch.

Plunderer has great anime so far being able to watch its first 3 episodes. I also would give a thumbs up to the nice character details – it has been constantly nice so far. The opening and ending theme songs are nice too. 

Though there is still a lot to see in this anime, it certainly among the promising ones this year. It’s a shounen adventure and action anime that you don’t want to miss out on.


BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense.

Date aired: Jan 8, 2020

One of the best anime this year 2020 would certainly be BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense. It offers a different twist on fantasy isekai anime shows.

What I liked best about Bofuri is it’s more focused on entertainment and adventure. So far, watching 6 episodes I did not see any serious part of this anime. It’s something that I think would continue the entire series. So if you simply want to enjoy the isekai genre, you’ll certainly love this.

It also has emphasized its gaming characteristics like leveling, acquiring skills, game events, guilds and a lot more. Thus, online gamers would certainly love this.

The main characters Maple and Sally are really cute and fun to watch especially Maple. She is a newbie when it comes to online gaming but you’ll love to see how he defeats anyone who tries to battle her.

When it comes to art, music, and animation, everything is great. It’s really exciting to see what adventures they will take especially not that they already have their guild.


Darwin’s Game

Date aired: Jan 4, 2020

At first, I really think that this anime will not be that good. However, after watching the first episode, I got hooked. Darwin’s Game is an action anime with a touch of gaming. Our main character Kaname got invited in a mysterious game and after accepting it, he became part of the game without knowing the risks.

In the game, he met other interesting characters like Shuka, Rein, Souta, Sui and others. Together, they try to survive the game and find a way on how to finish it.

The action scenes in this anime are exciting and fun to watch. The MC is not too overpowered which I kinda like. He started as a weak player but there are signs of his potentials. He slowly gets used to his Sigil or power as the anime progresses. It’s definitely one of the best this year especially when it comes to the Game category.

 


Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun

Date Aired: January 9, 2020

 

 

This anime is also known as Toilet-bound Hanako-kun.

The first thing I noticed with this anime is the different art style. It’s not the usual but its certainly cool enough to keep the anime interesting. Though it’s colorful, it’s not that bright compared to other anime like Plunderer which gives the anime a slightly dark feel. However, you’ll be surprised this anime has a good sense of comedy.

Now, one thing for sure, I think this anime would be hit. It has it all, demon, action, unique art style, interesting story, comedy, drama and also a love story. Even though I have only watched the first 3 episodes so far, I’m really looking forward to the rest of the episodes. 

It’s fun watching this anime due to the comedy and the likable characters Hanako and Yashiro. I definitely would recommend watching it.


Nekopara

Date Aired: January 9, 2020

 

 

So far, I have only watched the first episode of this anime. Now if you are a cat lover, then most definitely you will like this anime. The main characters in this show include catgirls – Chocola, Vanilla, Maple Cinnamon, Azuki and Coconut. I personally don’t have much interest in this type of anime but surely it will be a good one for the right audience. 

The anime is under the Comedy and Romance genre. So far, the comedy side was not able to make me laugh but I know in the coming episodes there will be more funny scenes. And the romance part is something that we would still have to look out for.   

I think this romance anime will have a long way to go. 

 


Dorohedoro

Date Aired: January 9, 2020

Dorohedoro is a dark-themed horror anime with lots of action and a slight taste of comedy. It’s a bloody anime and you’ll discover it right from the start. I think this anime is best for those who are looking for a new action-packed anime to start the year. 

The setting is in a dark place where there is no order, people could just kill anyone. There are guys who could use some magic and those who are very good at it are called “Sorcerers”. These magic-users goes inside this place using a door and test there magic on people. 

The main characters in this anime series are Kaiman and Nikaido. The story revolves around the journey of Kaiman aided by Nikaido in search of the sorcerer who turned his face into a reptile. They try to capture magic users(most of the time ends up being killed) in order to find a solution to Kaiman’s problem and hopefully turn him into a human again.

Dorohedoro is an anime of death and carnage so if you like this theme, your in for a treat. I think the action scenes in this anime is something that we all should look forward to. 


Pet Anime – Amazon Prime

 

 

The highlight of this anime are people who are known as PET. They are guys who have the ability to get into people’s minds and control their memories at the same time. This power is pretty useful when it comes to solving mysteries. However, this power does not come with a price. If the person’s heart is not strong enough it will make you insane.

Top Samurai Anime That you Should Watch

This page will talk about everything related to samurai anime. In the Samurai genre, the main character and other supporting characters as well including antagonists are samurai as well. These guys are sword warriors during medieval Japan.

 


Top Samurai Anime 2019

Dororo (2019)

The top samurai anime in 2019 is no other than Dororo. And it’s not just the best in the samurai genre, many also consider it among the best anime of 2019. 

I personally like this anime because of the intense emotion I felt while watching it. I love anime shows that touch the heart, it makes me want to watch it more. About half of the 24 episodes will give you a teary eye. There are a lot of lessons to learn in this anime aside from watching great action scenes. 

You might be surprised that the first main character you’ll know is Hyakkimaru. Due to his past, he lost most of his body parts and limbs. And now he is on a journey to regain everything back to make his life normal. This, of course, does not come easy since he had to defeat demons to achieve his goal.

Along the way, he met a child called Dororo. Though the first intention was to make use of Hyakkimaru fighting skills. Their experiences together slowly made them close friends.

 This anime has great characters, tons of action scenes, overflowing with emotions and nice animation and soundtrack.

Top Samurai Anime 2018

Gintama.: Shirogane no Tamashii-hen – Kouhan-sen

Gintama is one of the oldest and most popular shounen and samurai anime. Many also consider it among the best anime of all time. The most memorable part of this series (Second Season of the final arc of Gintama) is the showdown between Gintoki and Utsuro. 

Though you often see this anime as comedy, it also has emotional parts, especially with its backstories. When we talk about Gintama it has always been connected with great artwork and animation. Additionally, Gintama has its unique style when it comes to artwork and anime setting and story.   

Even though the anime still centers around Gintoki, other characters are still given enough highlight especially Utsuro. I definitely love this show and recommend it to all samurai lovers.

 

 


Best Demon Samurai Anime to Watch

Nurarihyon No Mago

I could still remember that reason why I watched this anime and it was because of how cool its main character looked. The main character here is Rikuo Nura and just by looking at its promotional images, you will already know that he will be a badass when it comes to fighting.

You’ll enjoy watching this demon samurai anime due to its nice animation, fight scenes and interesting characters. Though the whole story for me is a bit boring, you’ll somehow enjoy more knowing the different characters in this anime. Among the characters I liked, are Mezumaru and Gozumaru. Tsurara is quite interesting as well.

Demon Slayer

When we talk about demons, most anime fans would have heard about Demon Slayer which is very much popular in the year 2019. If you’re looking for blade fights against demons, then you definitely should watch this anime. 

One thing I appreciate about Kimetsu no Yaiba is its very nice animation. The action scenes are very detailed and the characters are well designed. The story and the main characters Tanjiro and Nezuko are very interesting which will make it easy to watch all the episodes in just a couple of days.

It is also important to mention that the anime was able to keep every episode interesting that even if there are no fight scenes you will not find the episode a waste of time. 

Mushibugyou (Mushibugyo)

Mushibugyou is an anime that is set in a time when Japan was inhabited by giant insects. Though most of the creatures considered as evil in this anime are giant insects, there are those stronger insects where I would consider as demons. 

 And since there are insects killing innocent people, there is also a group of strong and powerful guys who are determined to bring all these insects down. Among this group of insect-killers is our main character Jinbei Tsukishima. This anime is certainly fun to watch especially if you are a fan of samurai anime with demon protagonists. 

The group Mushibugyo was created by the government in order to protect the people. The members of this group are pretty cool and awesome which also adds to the positive side of this anime. There are a lot of interesting strong characters like Mugai and Kotori. You’ll also have your eyes on Shungiku.

The fight scenes in this anime are really good though the animation is not as good as the recent anime shows, still its fun to watch. There are fight scenes that are insanely awesome that will leave you at the edge of your seat. 


Best samurai romance anime

Samurai X (Rurouni Kenshin)

If you are looking for a samurai anime with a touch of romance, then the best one would certainly be Samurai X. Aside from the great samurai fight scenes when Kenshin Himura fought a lot of strong guys, it’s also a love story between Ken and Kaoru.

Kenshin’s life changed the moment he met Kaoru and until the end part of this anime you’ll see the importance of Kaoru in Kenshin’s life especially on his decision to change for the better.

What I like about this anime aside from the excellent fight scenes with blades are the lessons that come with it. This anime comes with life lessons that you can also apply in your life. It has everything you need in an anime – fight scenes, drama and comedy. You’ll certainly not regret watching this.


Samurai anime netflix

Kuromukuro

Kuromukuro is a 2 season anime where season 1 has 13 episodes and season 2 has 26. It is regarded as one of the best anime in the year 2016. It’s a mecha anime but with a touch of samurai since among the main character Kennosuke who is a skilled samurai from years past. His mission now is to protect Yukina whom he thinks is the princess he vowed to protect.

If you are a fan of anime with lots of robots you’ll definitely like this show. And since it has a samurai in it, certainly you’ll in for a lot of great action fights.  

When talking about visuals, it was certainly one of the best during its year. The characters look vibrant and attractive all throughout the episodes and considering it got a season 2, you’ll pretty much be ok with watching it.

Samurai 7

Samurai 7 is an action/drama type of anime. I always appreciate an anime that can touch the viewer’s heart, thus I consider this show a good one. And of course, since the main characters are samurai, expect a lot of great action fights. 

This anime is the story of 7 Samurai who responded to the request of a village who needs help. It is set in the futuristic time where there are still a few samurai. And speaking of futuristic, it also has mecha characters in it. This samurai anime is certainly action-packed that you would enjoy watching. 

Samurai Champloo

This anime tells the journey of 3 characters where 2 of them Mugen and Jin are samurai. They went on a journey to help Fuu find someone. Even though it is an old anime, it doesn’t make it less entertaining. It is an all-time favorite and could also be considered as among the classic anime of all times. 

Aside from being an action-packed samurai anime, it also has a funny side plus some dramatic moments. Though you most probably would enjoy more the action part. It’s an adventure anime which is fun to watch powered with excellent soundtracks and interesting characters.


Top Samurai anime characters

  • Kenshin Himura
  • Gintoki Sakata
  • Afro Samurai
  • Hyakkimaru
  • Masamune DATE
  • Toyohisa SHIMAZU
  • Yukimura SANADA
  • Demon Eyes Kyo

The strongest samurai in anime

Kenshin Himura

For me, the strongest samurai in anime would be no other than Kenshin Himura. He is a known samurai in his time and many also call him the Battosai. After killing thousands of people during the War, he is set on a redemption journey, vowed never to kill again.

Though he looks small and slender, he is pretty good at using his katana. It’s easy to identify him because of his X scar on his face. He is certainly the most skilled samurai in the anime world. Kenshin could cut through steel and he could cut neatly that the target can be reattached like it was never cut.

Best Magic Anime Series You Should not Miss

I love magic anime and when its coupled with fighting it becomes more exciting to watch. If you are looking for such an anime in this category, then you’ve landed on the right page. Physical fights plus magic animation makes every action scenes exciting and fun to watch.


Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic

When we talk about magic, one of the most popular anime in this genre is Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic. In this anime, you’ll be introduced to dungeons, treasures, Djinn guardians and magicians. The anime is about the journey of Alibaba and a boy who wanted to help him named Aladdin. It’s a shounen anime that you will easily fall in love with.

Aside from Magic, there is also a lot of fighting in this anime including fight scenes against animals and other monsters. You will be treated with exciting fight scenes that are done in excellent animation. The quality of animation keeps on improving per episode. 


Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail is in a world where magic is part of life. There are a lot of people who were gifted with the ability to use magic. These mages form guilds and one of this Fairy Tail.  

Part of the Fairy Tail guild is our main characters, Natsu, Lucy, and Gray. And together with other guild members, they continue to pursue their personal goals while protecting the world where they live against wicked guilds. 

And since its a time of magic, expect a lot of fights with magic in it, from magic in the form of water, air, fire and other magical capabilities you could think of. The good thing about this anime is aside from a lot of fights and magic, it is also filled with laughter, adventure, and even sadness


Overlord

Overlord is among the most popular Isekai anime created. So far it finished with its third season and everyone is looking forward for the 4th season to come.

One of the most popular and strongest characters that can yield magic in the anime world is Ainz Ooal Gown of Overlord. Though I think this anime is more on the magic side since our main character is a magic caster, it still has a lot of nice fight scenes from the other supporting characters.

Additionally, our protagonist Ainz Ooal Gown has the ability to change into a character that is very much efficient when it comes to physical fights. This makes him very powerful and could be the most powerful being in their world.

If you are interested in watching magic, fight scenes and RPG concept anime, then Overlord is perfect. 


Anime with magic and fighting

Black Clover

Black Clover is the story of Asta who wanted to become a Wizard King. However, it was hard for him to manifest any magical powers. And in their time, magic is considered a gift to only a few. 

If you are looking for an action-packed magical anime, this will not fail. Though you will find it less exciting after watching many of its episodes since its a huge show, in general, still it’s a good anime to watch.

The fight scenes are pretty cool especially when it comes to fights with main protagonists. Think about the scenes between Naruto and Pain or Ichigo and Aizen.

It is somehow similar to Fairy Tail when it comes to the number of supporting characters this anime has. And they also have the same Shouting Protagonist(lol). And when it comes to characters, I would give it a 9/10 rating.

It’s a shounen magic show that is fun to watch and something that you’ll surely enjoy as a shounen fan.


Anime with magic school

The Irregular At Magic High School

This anime revolves around a magical institution environment. It’s in a school with students who are magic users. In their time, magic users play a very big role in a nation’s army – their ability to fight for their nation.

The story revolves around the journey of Tatsuya Shiba and his sister Miyuki as they enroll in a top magical school in their country and learn more about their abilities. One thing to look forward to in this anime is the tournament arc where you will definitely be treated with great action fights. The hand to hand combat of Tatsuya with other characters is also really awesome to watch.


Fantasy magic anime

The Seven Deadly Sins

 The anime is a story of Elizabeth and Meliodas together with the rest of the group called “The Seven Deadly Sins”. This group is feared due to their abilities and powers, but they are actually not the bad guys.

With the use of their magical powers, they fight against various groups with evil plans. Their main rival is a group known to be the 10 Commandments. 

This anime is packed with fight scenes and you’ll definitely lot it when Meliodas(Sin of Wrath), Ban(The Immortal Sin of Greed), and Escanor(The Sin of Pride) start to fight seriously. It also has humor which makes it more fun to watch.

The Ancient Magus’ Bride

Aside from a fantasy anime, this show could also be classified as mystery and supernatural. It has some interesting characters led by Chise and Elias Ainsworth. The Ancient Magus’ Bride is an anime that is full of creatures like spirits, fairies, and dragons. 

With an interesting story and characters, I would recommend this anime to anyone. Another great thing about the show is it has rounded up pretty well. You will not be left out hanging. The ending is enough that you would appreciate it and somehow still has something that the viewers would look forward to in another season.


Best magic anime 2018

Iroduku: The World in Colors

This anime will surely capture your heart. I find it a very great anime especially in the genre of magic and fantasy. One thing that makes this the best is its great animation. You will appreciate how the characters are made in pretty decent design quality.

The story of this anime is about a mage who met and accident. I would not dive into the details here for you to figure out what this accident is and how it changed the life of our main character. 

It surely is one of the best anime in 2018 that deals with magic. I would recommend watching it especially for those who are tired of watching anime fights and wants to see something more emotional with a slice of life. 


New magic anime 2019

Kenja no Mago

Date aired: Apr 10, 2019 to Jun 26, 2019

This anime also known as Wise Man’s Grandchild, is the story of Shin Walford who lives in a world where monster and magic exists. He is adopted by a famed magician which helped him improved his magic. After surpassing the abilities of his father, he decided to enroll in a magic academy to improve his skills. Slowly, people in that school realize how powerful Shin is.  

Since its an Isekai anime, I easily fall in love with it. So if you are in this genre also, you’ll appreciate it also. Though some are saying it’s not as efficient as other Isekai anime mainly because most of the time you’ll forget its Isekai. You’ll know what I mean when you watch it. Still, for me, it’s fun to watch and you’ll certainly enjoy watching it. 

Another thing I liked about this anime is that is has a lot of characters. I prefer an anime series with lots of characters while still being able to determine which ones are the main casts. So if you are looking for a magic Isekai, check this out.

Fate/Grand Order: Zettai Majuu Sensen Babylonia

Fate/Grand Order is definitely a great anime however, it is mainly targeted to viewers who have played the mobile game. You will get confused watching this if you are not playing the game. However, for those who are into this game, this is what they are waiting for.   

The visual and animation part of this anime is well applauded. They have brilliantly incorporated the CGI effects in this anime. Great use of colors which makes everything look stunning. Adding to this is the excellent sound effects and OST. 

The anime is actually a prequel on what is to come this coming October. And, we certainly could expect it to be a good one and well-executed. 

Fairy Gone 2nd Season

Aired: Oct 7, 2019 to Dec 23, 2019

Fairy Gone is set in a time and world where humans gained supernatural abilities due to Fairies. These Fairies and Possess Animals were used as a weapon by transplanting their organs to people. And these people were used as soldiers due to their improved abilities. But since the war has ended, these soldiers are now trying to live a normal life, but there are some who have used their abilities for evil purposes.

Though there were a lot of great expectations for this new anime, it somehow failed to deliver. Its failure is most likely due to how it managed the story, by failing to give a good plot.   

When it comes to design and animation, It was fairly good during the first few episodes. However, quality slowly fads as the episodes progress. So if you are particular with this part of an anime show, then you should not watch this.

And for those who have watched season 1 which was considered a failure, it would be best not to go on watching season 2 since it somehow failed to deliver a big blow to improve the anime. 

For those who have not watched it yet, there are still some reasons to consider watching this anime which are its characters. I personally think that the characters are interesting enough. And you would still enjoy watching this action-packed, magical show.


Best magic anime 2019

Radiant

Date aired: Oct 6, 2018 to Feb 23, 2019

Radiant anime is about the magical journey of Seth in search of the Radiant which is the place believed to be the source of monsters in their world. He is on a mission to completely eradicate the monster by eliminating where these monsters originate. Along the way, he met new friends and together they fought against different kinds of enemies.  

When it comes to Visuals and Animation, it will surely not disappoint. Everything is really beautiful and crisp with blight colors. The action scenes are pretty awesome plus made more captivating with magic effects. The best thing is that they were able to be consistent with this high-quality animation.

The characters are intriguing and interesting enough to make you watch all its episodes and look forward to its Season 2.

Samurai Anime 2019 – Surprisingly There are only Four

samurai anime 2019
As of the time writing this article, I only found 4 samurai anime in 2019. Last year(2018) was better since there are more than 10. Without any delays let us go through these anime shows.

Dororo (2019)

Date aired: January 7 to June 24, 2019
The most popular and the best samurai anime for 2019 would be Dororo. It is a story of a man named  Hyakkimaru who was deserted by his father who is actually a Samurai Lord. When this man was born, he has no limbs, eyes, nose and even skin, but amidst all this, he is alive. This happened because his father made a pact with demons to grant his desire for power.
And with the child’s condition, the heartless king decided to dispose of the child in the river. Good thing this man was saved and now he is on a journey to defeat the demons who caused him to lose his limbs and other parts of his body. And on this journey, he is accompanied by Dororo who is an orphan boy. They team up to survive and defeat the demons to regain the parts he lost making his life miserable.
One thing I liked most in Dororo is the characters and its deep story. And all of these were supported by great art. And since it is an anime based on a series already released many years ago, it’s good to see a show that showcases ancient Japan where Samurai stories are common.
If you are a fan of anime with an adventure theme coupled with a supernatural element, Dororo is something that you should not miss.

Kochouki: Wakaki Nobunaga

Date aired: July 8 to September 23, 2019
This anime show showcases the life of Oda Nobunaga in the personality of Kochouki. Oda is a known person in Japanese history and is regarded as one of the three unifiers of Japan. The anime will show how he lived as a teen and how he fought against his own brother Nobuyuki.
You will certainly like watching this anime since the animation is done well and the characters look really nice and well crafted. The story is intriguing as well making you want to watch the next episodes. For those who love watching anime that related to historical events, this is definitely a treat.

Mugen no Juunin: Immortal

Date aired: October 2019
Mugen no Juunin: Immortal or   Blade of the Immortal is a story of Rin and Manji. They are both set on a journey to find the peace they are looking for.  Manji is an immortal swordsman who grew tired of living, while Rin is a young girl longing for vengeance for her family who was slaughtered.
Manji is on a journey to kill evil men in order to regain his mortality. In this concept, it has similarity with Dororo.

If you are the type of anime fan who is into gore, then this anime will surely suit you. If gore is not your thing, don’t dare watch this. Another thing commendable is the fight scenes which are well animated. This is very important for samurai anime since what we look forward to are the fight scenes. These action scenes are definitely fun to watch considering the Manji is super BADASS when it comes to fights.

Bakumatsu: Crisis

Date aired: April 5 to June 21, 2019
Bakumatsu: Crisis is about the story of Takasugi and Katsura who are on a quest to save their nation. They both live in the Bakumatsu era where there exists a mysterious timepiece that has the power to manipulate time.
This timepiece is kept and used by the government. So in order for this not to fall into the wrong hands of a leader who is selfish, our main characters intend to destroy it.
Animation and sound effect is fair enough, but I really couldn’t consider it as something I could recommend. Maybe what lacks most in this anime is a good plot and story. Also, there are too many characters that somehow distracts you from liking a single one aside from the main characters.

Best Sci Fi Anime 2019

If you are looking for the best sci-fi anime in 2019, we made this list specifically for you. Check this out and you might just find the next anime series to watch in your free time.

10. Cannon Busters

Aired: August 15, 2019

Canoon Busters characters

 

This anime is the story of a trio who decided to go on a journey in a dangerous world. The group is spearheaded by SAM “Special Associate Model”.  Their main goal is to find SAM’s best friend Kelby who is actually a prince. In this anime, you’ll be watching out of this world magic and mechs.

If you are a fan of Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo and Trigun, then you are in for a treat. You need to watch this and expect great fight scenes.

Since the anime is Netflix produced, it has a great visual appeal. Job well done on creating a unique universe in this anime. The sound theme and sound effects are great as well.  You’ll easily become a fan of the main characters. Certainly among the best mecha sci fi anime for this year.

9. Kono Yo no Hate de Koi wo Utau Shoujo YU-NO

Aired: April 2 to October 1, 2019

Kono Yo no Hate de Koi wo Utau Shoujo YU-NO characters

This anime is the story of Takuyama Arima who has a device that allows him to travel to a different world/dimension.  The device most likely has something to do with his father – a historian who recently disappeared.

Since the anime was based on a novel which was popular around 2 decades ago, it hard to imagine that it would be that interesting today. It would surely have a different impact when it was released several years ago. Though it is still good enough, it does not stand out too much. The anime is still interesting enough to grab your attention and continue watching its episodes.

This anime is best for those who wanted to see an anime not because of its entertainment value but because of its legacy and how it made a significant change in the anime world decades ago. And if you are looking for an anime that is worth it for its story, you should not miss this.

8. Cop Craft

July 9 to October 1, 2019

main characters of Cop Craft

The anime follows the unlikely duo of Kei Matoba who is among the best cops in their department and Tilarna Exedilika, who is a knight in their Kingdom. It is certainly interesting to watch how this partnership of a human and non-human would unfold in a buddy cop theme. If you are a fund of this type of team-up like Rush hour and Bad boys, then this anime would be great for you.

Living with strange creatures known as fairies happened due to a gate that appeared on the Pacific Ocean. This connected the human world to the world of fairies and monsters.

The thing that made this anime successful is the pair of Kei and Tilarna. When they are together expect the scene to be great. The story is also wonderful considering that it has something to do with blending the human world with a different world. And with such condition, expect the anime to be a good mix of comedy, good guys fighting bad guys and drama. The guys behind this show also did a great job of organizing the whole story especially on establishing the relation of the main characters.

7. No Guns Life

Aired: October 11, 2019

Psycho-Pass 3 follows the story of this anime from Season 1 to Season 2 plus 2 new rookies in the lineup. This anime is considered to be one of the classic anime series which is the reason for its wide popularity.

This anime is one of my favorites this year. The story is very unique where a green light causes everyone to turn into stone. When the name character Taiju Ooki wakes up, he saw a new environment where nature has flourished and once again has become dominant. Plus, all the statues of people who have becomes stones.

Together with his partner Senkuu who is already active before Taiju woke up, they are in an adventure to revive all those who were petrified.  The plan is all made possible due to the brilliant mind of Senkuu. While on the other hand, his partner Taiju does most of the other physical works.

If you are looking for a unique anime to watch with a different kind of story, this one is for you.

However, 3 siblings do not buy this fact and have suspicions that something unusual is happening in the orphanage. And they are about to discover something horrific.

This anime is one of the most promising and most anticipated anime of 2019. And by far it has lived to the expectations.

One of the most amazing parts about this anime is how they highlight dramatic/climatic moments. It will surely make you want for more. The animation is great added with excellent sound effects, it all adds up to the effectiveness of this anime.

1. One Punch Man Season 2

Aired: April 10 to July 3, 2019

 

Our top sci-fi anime in 2019 is One Punch Man. When we talk about anime, it’s not surprising to have this anime on top of the categories it is under. Season 2 continues the story of Saitama in search of a strong opponent that would be a fair match for him.

If you are searching for a fun, action-packed sci-fi anime, then you will never go wrong with One Punch Man. One of the best things about this anime is the main character Saitama. He is a very likable character with a non-human strength.

Though he doesn’t look that strong physically, one will immediately know the reason why he is considered the strongest human/creature on Earth after a single punch.
