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

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.

Anime 2020 – A Comprehensive List

2020 is an optimistic year for anime fans since there is a lot of highly anticipated anime lined up. This Anime 2020 list will highlight some of the best anime this year.


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

Juuzou Inui of No Guns Life

In this anime, there are people known as Extended. These are people who were outfitted with robotic parts. The main character of this anime is Juuzou Inui who has no memories of his past. His goal is to determine who are the people responsible for him becoming an Extended.

You will like this anime because of its interesting setup. The anime world is well created that it makes you want to know more about the place. The main characters also play an excellent role in making this anime a good one. These characters are interesting enough that makes the overall story great.

This anime is best for those who are looking for a fascinating show with action, mystery, and cyberpunk.

6. Psycho-Pass 3

Aired: October 25, 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. It had somehow failed to give justice to its fans on season 2, but many are still hopeful for this latest season.

Season 3 has become more interesting. Especially focusing on the development of the new characters. You’ll find out more interesting facts as the story progresses and the more you know about these character’s stories. The action scenes in this latest season are still fairly good.  And overall animation with sound effects was executed well.

5. Kanata no Astra

Aired: July 3 to September 18, 2019

 

The year is 2063 and at this time, space travel is a common thing – its commercially available.  This anime is the story of a group of campers in the outer space who were mysteriously sucked by a black light. And because of this incident, they have to find a way how to get back home after being transported thousands of light-years away from home.

It’s a story of survival so if this is the type of anime you are looking for it will surely entertain you. Here you will witness how teenagers overcome their emotions in order to stay sane and make the right decisions to survive and get home.

The overall sound effects and visual is great. Plus the story and character development is commendable as well.

4. Date A Live III

Aired: January 11 to March 29, 2019

date a live characters

The anime continues the story of Shidou Itsuka on this quest on finding spirits and sealing off their powers. While doing so, he is doing his best to maintain a good relationship with the ones he already has sealed.

In this new Season, our main character will encounter more trials as he discovers more about the mystery and origin of the Spirits.

Considered as one of the most underrated anime this year. And once you start watching it, you’ll certainly find it enjoyable to watch.  While the anime is not the best compared to the other seasons in terms of animation, aside from this, everything is good with this anime.

For those interested in sci fi anime with female lead this is a must-watch.

3. Dr. Stone

Aired: July 5, 2019

main characters of Dr. Stone anime

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.

2. Yakusoku no Neverland

Aired: January 10 to March 29, 2019

The anime is about orphans who live as a family in a certain house which is surrounded by a forest. A gate entrance restricts them from going into the forest area. And since its an orphanage, even though how happy they are already in the said place, the time comes that one has to leave and be adopted by a new family.

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.

The story is something you will also love. You will be hooked on thinking about how these kids will survive in the orphanage. How will they be able to escape death? The story is very addictive since the writers were able to make a gradual progression in the story after every episode.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best Martial Arts Anime of All Time

Are you looking for the next martial arts anime to watch? This list is for you. I have compiled all the best and top-rated anime with martial arts action. You’ll certainly agree that the fight scenes of this type of anime series are pretty much exciting and very fun to watch. Plus, if the anime creators did a great job with the animation, it makes things even better.

 

Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple

I would confidently say that one of the most epic martial arts anime would be Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple. It’s the story of a guy named Kanichi who has been bullied for a long time and then decided to learn martial arts. The show has a lot of intense fight scenes thus violence is a common scene on most episodes.  The good side is that the violence part is not exaggerated. Its an excellent martial arts anime since it has a lot of punching and kicking in most of the fight scenes.  Overall, the anime is pretty amazing and our protagonist is very much likable. You’ll see the progression of the main character from being a weak person slowly learning different fighting techniques the hard way. So if you are interested in watching an anime with lots of action where the protagonist is not overpowered right from the start, then go watch this anime.

 


Tenjho Tenge

When we talk about anime related to martial arts, the one that rises among the others would be Tenjou Tenge. The story is about students in a martial arts school. Due to the nature of the school, its natural to see groups of students with different fighting styles competing against each other of course to determine who is the strongest and which fighting style rules.
All eyes are on the Jyukenbo Club led by their very sexy captain Natsume. She may be a girl, but she definitely could fight. Other members of the club that would get your attention would be Nagi and Aya. When we talk about fight scenes, this anime is great, just don’t mind the story since it did not perform well on this part.
Number of Episodes: 26

 


Baki the Grappler

Most of the anime fans who watch Baki the Grappler decided to watch it for the rights. If you are looking for amazing fight scenes displaying different martial art techniques, then this is a must-see. The great thing about this anime is it also discusses a lot of things about the different martial art styles, it gives info on its history, techniques and different moves. Thus, viewers would somehow have more idea about these various fighting styles.
In general, you will love this anime due to its great art, insane fight scenes which will leave you at the edge of your seat and interesting characters with different backgrounds. Each of the strong characters was also given enough air time so you would know them more and how they became that strong in the martial art they have chosen to master.
One of the new martial arts anime is Baki(Ona) and if you have loved this anime in the previous years, you’ll even get hooked with the latest season with better animation and more insane fight scenes.
Baki the Grappler (2001): 24 Episodes
Baki the Grapper 2 (2001): 24 Episodes
Baki (Ona) 2018 : 26 Episodes

 


Dragon Ball Z

Among the oldest anime in the martial arts genre would be Dragon Ball Z. If you are the kind of person who craves a lot for fight scenes with supernatural powers, then you should watch Dragon Ball. I think if you have not watched this anime yet, you are among the few anime lovers who haven’t watch it yet. There are already a lot of versions or should I say seasons for this anime and the most recent I think is Dragon Ball Heroes.
Check the full list of series/saga here: https://dragonball.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_Sagas
Now in terms of martial arts, this anime is more of supernatural powers especially after son Goku became a super saiyan, but still the fight scenes have some martial arts components. You’ll appreciate the martial arts of this anime on the first few series where Goku is still not a Saiyan.

 


Naruto

For martial arts enthusiasts, Naruto certainly has a lot to offer. Majority of the fight scenes in this anime series has something to do with martial arts. Fistfights are a common scenario in this anime and though there are lots of fight scenes, you’ll never grow tired of watching it.
If there is one character that you have to watch out who is very much interesting when it comes to martial arts, that would be Rock Lee and his master Gai. Both of them are excellent in hand to hand combat.

 


Katanagatari

Is an entertaining samurai anime with great fight scenes. It has a unique art style which for me is a big childish but still great enough to get my interest. The main character in this anime is Shichika who is the son of a person who is very much adept in using the martial art technique called Kyoto Ryu. Even though its the Samura era, this technique is still feared by many. Shichika was able to master the technique of his father and is leaving peacefully on a small island with his sister.
Samurai action fights plus excellent martial arts technique makes this anime a much watch for anime fans. Like other anime series, it has its short-comings but for me, it still is interesting enough to watch especially for those love to watch anime fights.

 


Yu Yu Hakusho

Yu Yu Hakusho is a classic anime that features martial arts. Though there is already supernatural powers involved in this anime, martial arts action is still there. It became widely popular in the 90s due to its nice story, interesting characters and lots wonderful action scenes. It’s an action-packed anime that featured a group of 4 friends lead by Yusuke.
If you have watched this anime before, you will definitely be excited in the New Yu Yu Hakusho OVA coming soon. https://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/anime/269744/new-yu-yu-hakusho-ova-coming-2018

 


Kengan Ashura

Its a new martial arts anime that was released July 2019 and is closely similar to Baki the Grappler. So if you have already finished watching Baki, try checking this out. This anime features underground Mix Martial Arts (MMA) fights which makes it bloody and full of muscles guys frighting to death. Its a recommended anime for martial art lovers due to the MMA nature of this anime and its definitely packed with lots of fights. Similar to Baki, the anime also did a great job of explaining the principles behind the techniques that the anime characters are using in their fights.

 


Hajime no Ippo

 

Who said boxing is not a martial arts? Boxing is considered to be one of the oldest martial arts of all time. And for me, the best anime that highlights this discipline is no other than Hajime no Ippo. This anime is not only full of fight scenes, but above all, it’s pretty much exciting and inspiring. You will see the struggles of the main character Ippo and how he had transitioned from a guy who lacks the confidence to one that is able to face his fears like a true man would.
In an anime story, it’s just excellent to watch someone who started from the group slowly climbing into popularity due to his perseverance and dedication in the sport he becomes to love.

 


Ranma 1/2

This anime is a unique one, you will know why the moment you watch it. You are given a hint in the title on why this anime is unique. It’s an anime that became popular during the time when Dragon Ball and Yu Yu Hakushu were also the talk of the town. This anime is more of a sitcom anime where the episodes are somehow not connected to each other. Aside from having a taste of action and martial arts, the anime has a high dose of comedy. So aside from appreciating the fight scenes, you will also have a good laugh watching Ranma 1/2.

 


Ikki Tousen

Ikki Tousen also is known as Battle Vixens, is an action-packed anime, but if you are annoyed of too much fan service, this is not the anime for you. To give you an idea, most of the fight scenes with girls end up with deconstruction of clothing so by now, you know what to expect. Plus, huge boobs + fight scenes means boobs flying left and right so be also prepared for that.
If you are among those who are very much particular with the story of an anime, you should first have a good grasp of Chinese History before watching this. When it comes to action, yes there will be lots of it.

 


Taboo Tattoo

If you are looking for hand to hand combat, this anime will suffice. Its a story of Seigi who is a martial arts students and due to a certain event that happened in his life he was able to gain incredible power. Our main character is the type of person who wants to master the craft of his martial art and become stronger than his current state. This anime has lots of fight scenes where our hero is even faced with opponents who are stronger than him.
I really appreciate the fight scenes in this anime. It’s brutal and pretty much interesting while still being close to reality. Though there are superpowers involved, the hand to hand combat outshines it.

 


One Punch Man

I believe almost all anime lovers today know or have heard about One Punch Man, even if you have not watched it yet, surely you have heard about it from a friend or have seen it on social media. Saitama, who is the main character of this anime is considered to be the strongest human on earth(though I really doubt he is a human in the first place). Even though he looks like a natural bald guy, he has an out of this world strength and speed as well.
Well yeah, due to his strength, you won’t appreciate much of his fights since he could finish enemies with one punch only(now you have an idea regarding the title). The outstanding fight scenes would come from the other hero characters in the anime like Genos, White Fang and others.
If you have not watched this anime yet, your definitely missing a lot of fun so go watch it now. You’ll never regret it.

 


Mushibugyo

This anime has 26 episodes and for those in the action genre, it’s a good show to watch. Though the fight scenes are great, you somehow would not appreciate it that much in terms of martial art skills since the main enemy are big bugs. Yes, it is set in a time or world where there are big buys eating humans and so we have the good guys to protect us.
Personally, I do like the show mainly because of its satisfying fight scenes and interesting characters. However, there is something in this anime that tells me that it lacks something that would make it great. Nonetheless, it’s still entertaining even though the story is not good. If gory and fan service your thing, then you will not have any problem watching this show.

 


Hinomaru-Zumou 2018

This anime is about a unique martial art style which is Sumo. If you have watch Hajime no Ippo he story is closely similar, but of course in a different sport. The main character had to endure a lot of struggle before achieving his goals. Its an inspiring anime to watch since you will see the effort of the main character to be stronger win every match he enters.
I think the good thing about this anime aside from being inspiring is it also educates people about the sport Sumo. It definitely is a good sports anime that delivers the essence of this genre.

 


Freezing

Surprisingly, even though this is an old anime, it got a lot of good reviews from various anime fans. Since the main characters are mostly girls, what one might think that it only rests on fan service, however it delivers more. The best thing with this anime is the fight scenes. A lot of martial art styles were displayed on the fight scenes so for those who love to watch action, you will get hooked with this anime. It is bloody with an incredible amount of fan service, but in general it still an enjoyable series.

Best Romance Anime Series Of All Time

Among the most popular genre in the anime world is definitely romance anime. It is just nice to see anime characters showing love, care and affection. The best thing is all is that these anime series does not only revolve around drama, there is also magic, adventure and comedy.
Being an anime fan for a long time now, I have already seen a lot of romance anime series and below I have listed my top recommendation. You surely would have your own list of best romance anime so why not share them in the comment below. But before that, check out the list I have prepared for you.

 

Golden Time

Due to an accident, Banri Tada sadly lost all his memories. Life continues and he was admitted at a Law School in Tokyo hoping to get a new start in life. Here he met Kaga Kouko. After their first meeting, there was already a spark and like somehow they have already known each other for a long time.

As the story continues, the main character discovered a lot about college life and all the emotions that comes with it which of course involve falling in love – both pain and happiness.  The best thing about this anime is that it reflects life situation in all corners, not just around the school premises which makes the experience of the characters more realistic.


 

Fruits Basket

 

 

The same with Golden Time, the main character in this anime series Tohru also encountered a misfortune. Her mother died in a car crash and because of this, she decided to live with her grandfather. But, things did not go well in that place so she ended up living all by herself in a tent. Fate came into the picture allowing her to meet Yuki Sohma, Shigure and Kyo who are cousins. Since then, things changed and Tohru is about to discover a great secret of the Sohmas.

This anime is one of the most loved anime ever made so its no surprise that it is very popular and from its first release around year 2000, it is now re-animated in 2019 where currently the series is still on-going.

You can watch it here:     https://www.crunchyroll.com/fruits-basket

 

Snow White with the Red Hair

 

 

The anime title already reveals what is very special in this anime which is the main character Shirayuki having an apple-red hair unlike anyone have seen – at least in their time. She seems to be one of a kind with her hair which even draws the attention of the prince in their place and wanted her to be a mistress. Of course, Shirayuki does not agree with this and decided to flee the kingdom by going to the forest where she met Zen.

This charming guy who also is a prince easily got the trust of Shirkayuki so she went with Zen in his castle. In this kingdom she continued her pursuit in becoming a great palace pharmacist.  The question now is how will the relationship of Zen and Shirayuki develop considering that our main character attracts a lot of attention not only because of her red hair but also because of her kindness. Eventually, other characters get to fall in love with her.


 

Your Lie in April

This best romance anime list would never be complete without Your Lie in April.

Kousei Arima our main character is a genius in playing the piano, but due to the sudden death of his mother he forgot about his passion to play the piano. This was inevitable since losing your mother is definitely one of the biggest stones that life would throw at you. He had lived a dull life not until he meets Kaori Miyazono who is a violinist.

Best Romance Anime 2017

After talking about the top 5 among the best when it comes to anime about romance, let us introduce you to the anime considered to be the best in the romance anime category in the year 2017.

Masamune-kun no Revenge

This anime is also known as (Masamune-kun’s Revenge). The main characters in this anime series are Adagaki, Aki and Makabe, Masamune. The word revenge in the title is due to Makabe’s vengeful plan against Aki. And he has set the grandest plan to accomplish this without fail. The reason is that he was called “piggy” because he is overweight when he was still a child. And even though the great plan is set, of course, not all things will go according to plan. That’s just simply how life goes and this is what you need to watch out in this anime

Aside from being a romantic anime, you’ll also have lots of fun and laugh watching this anime especially if you are into Witty Anime Humor. Also, its good to point out that the animation of this show is great.  Since the animation is good and characters are well presented, it makes important scenes more significant and praiseworthy.

The same as with all other anime series, it has its negative sides but it is also overflowing with positive sides as well.

 


Best Romance Comedy Anime

High Score Girl II

The Season 2 of High School Girl is the continuation of where it ended on Season 1. So of course, our main characters Haruo Yaguchi, Akira Oono, and Koharu Hidaka are still very passionate about video games. If you are looking for a fun anime in the romance genre, then this show will surely satisfy.
Aside from being comedic, there are also a lot of scenes in this anime that would place you at the edge of your seat as it tries to play with your emotions. In this season, Harou and Akira are going through important stages in their life where they display intense emotions in dealing with various life situations.
Though many do not want to see CGI in an anime show, it actually has blended well in this show. Maybe because of its video gaming part. You’ll certainly enjoy watching this anime where each episode offers something new to the table. In general, this anime did great and is something you need to watch.

Best Romance Anime 2019

Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san 2

If you have followed season 1 of this anime, you’ll also love season 2.  You will definitely fall in love with this anime again. Though it’s something closely similar to season 1 it’s still fun and enjoyable to watch for a romance anime. The couple Takagi and Nishikat are simply very cute to watch.
The big difference from season 1 would be that they are not in 2nd-year high school. While they are still in their first year, it’s clear that they have a crush on each other but both are too shy to admit it. This second season their relationship somehow is taking shape but still not official. We could see that both of them are now more comfortable and natural with each other.
In general, those who made this anime did a great job of improving the show from season 1. It’s certainly the best romance anime for me in 2019.

 

 


Torodora

Considered to be one of the best romantic comedy anime of all time. Torodora should not be missed for anyone looking to watch an anime in the romance genre. The love journey of the main characters Taiga and Ryuji is about learning the true meaning of love. They resort to some silly decisions or action just to get the attention of their crushes and they both end up failing in achieving their goals.

The show does not show how silly you become when you have crushes especially when its your first time having this kind of feeling. But it portrays that eventually, you will learn from all your love experience and you grow with it. You will just be looking back in time and smile at how silly you have been before. And before I forget, expect to get tons of laugh with this anime.


 

Anohana:  The Flower We Saw That Day

 

 

Anohana is one of those anime that is pretty much interesting and has a unique story. It’s actually about a ghost who could not get into the afterlife since she still has to fulfill her final wish. The problem is she does not anymore have the memory on what her final wish is. She will be aided by her group of friends led my Jinta who is the only person who could see her. Their goal is to help their ghost friend discover what would make her rest in peace.

This anime really packs a lot of emotion and is considered as one of those shows that would certainly make you cry.  The love story here is more of the love for a friend type of relationship.


 

Inuyasha

 

 

Inuyasha is one of those classic anime. It’s under the genre of demon romance anime. The main characters here are Kagome and Inuyasha. Kagome is human – a high school girl while Inuyasha is a half-demon. Their love story is unique, human and demon though this kind of theme is not new in the anime world.

It all started when Kagome who is from the modern-day was sent to the world of Inuyasha in the feudal era of Japan. She was able to free Inuyasha from the magic that binds him in a tree and from then on their journey together begins.

It is still nice to see true love in a world with demons and the fact that a human girl would find love and care in one of the strongest demons. This just proves that love does not have any boundaries.

 

Yona of the Dawn

 

Yona lives a wonderful life as a Princess in their Kingdom, but things changed on the night of her 16th birthday. She suddenly lost everything and was forced to live their castle. The only person she had left is Hak who is her bodyguard. Together with Hak she is now on a journey to find allies to help her in her goal of reclaiming her kingdom.

This is a love story about giving your life to protect the one you love and helping her to reach her ultimate goal in life. Aside from the love story, this anime is also full of action.


 

Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara

 

The anime revolves around the life of Hitomi who was send back in time by her grandmother through the use of a certain magic spell. The Year is 2018 and it was the time when her grandmother was in her high school days. Hitomi is the kind of person who does not show off her feelings that much and this is something that she will have to overcome and as she goes on with life. The overall story is about the quest of Hitomi to find real happiness and loving herself would play a big role in it.

And of course, this leads to her also finding the love of her life. Aside from the story, what’s most interesting about this anime is the overall art style. It’s generally very pleasing and just nice to watch especially considering that this anime is not just about normal life, but a life with magic.
