A lot of anime fans including me loves anime series with violence. For today I have compiled the best violent anime 2020. Feel free to go through this list below and let me know your thoughts.
The God of High School
The number one on my list would be the very famous anime in 2020 which is The God of High School. The general theme of the show is to determine who is the strongest of them all. And on this note, expect the show to highlight violence. There will be a lot of fights to the extent of killing their enemy.
The character will use whatever it takes to win. They will use all means possible to achieve victory and to be on top. By the time of writing this article the anime only has 3 Episodes. But, it is already very promising.
It has a lot of action fights starting from episode 1. If you love violent fighting anime, you should not miss watching this GOH.
The anime also has a lot of interesting main characters – Jin Mo-ri, Han Dae-wi, and Yu Mi-ra. For me, The God of High School is an anime that got it all making it thus far the best anime 2020.
Another promising violent anime in 2020 is Gibiate. The show is set in a world where there is a virus that transforms people into monsters. The violence in this anime is targeted mostly towards these monsters. However, there are also times when violence is on other human beings.
As we all know, in an apocalyptic scenario like this where a virus takes over the world and turns everyone into monsters, people will not only be dealing with monsters to survive. They also have to survive from being killed by other humans who also just wanted to survive.
With monsters all around the place, expect to see a Gorefest anime. We could also label this anime as Violent sci-fi anime due to the emergence of mutants or monsters. If you are into an anime genre were people fight against monsters, then you need to watch this anime.
This Gore anime 2020 will surely be a hit considering that the main character – Sensui is using a sword as his main weapon and all hush comrades also use unique weapons with the main purpose of killing the enemy.
So far, these are the only anime I have seen in the violent anime genre 2020. What are your thoughts? Do you know an anime show this year that we could add to this list? Comment down below. We would surely love to hear from you.
I think there is a big preference for stories with Demon Lord involved in anime. This is why Demon Anime is quite popular these days. If you recently watched this genre and wanted to watch more, then consider the series mentioned below.
Demon slayer (2019)
Most likely you have already watched this anime considering your looking for a demon anime to watch. However, if you haven’t watched it yet, check the trailer below and I am most certainly sure what you will do next.
Demon Slayer anime is the story of a man named Tanjiro whose entire family was murdered by a demon. The only one left was his sister Nezuko but it turned out that she’s turned into a demon. Tanjiro starts a journey to find a cure to make his sister human again.
This anime became a hit because of its excellent character design, top-notched animation, wonderful and compelling story. And I would let you know in advance that all the action scenes in this anime will surely keep you at the edge of your seat. The fight scenes are jaw-dropping. You will certainly enjoy every Demon Slayer episode you’ll watch.
How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord (2018)
This anime show is another anime with an overpowered main character. If you a fan of this genre, this would surely excite you. It’s an Isekai anime where our main character was transported to another world where he becomes a character in a game called Diablo.
I think Sakamoto or Diablo in the fantasy world is an excellent main character. He is pretty funny and very much likable. Even though he is very much powerful, he doesn’t mindlessly use it. He uses the strategies he learned while playing online games. The other 2 main characters are Rem and Shera. Rem is kind of a serious type while Shera is the funny one. Basically, this demon lord anime is about the journey of these 3 characters.
When it comes to animation, it’s good enough for me. But there are times that I find it too simple especially the characters. I would say that it is a good show and would recommend it to anyone who doesn’t mind some ecchi content.
Black Butler (2014)
This anime show has a good balance of drama and comedy. Even though it’s an old anime, it does not make it less interesting. It’s one of those anime series that you’ll enjoy even if it has been released some years ago. Each character is interesting enough to keep you watching it. In this anime, a lot f non-human creatures are included like reapers, demons, and angels.
The story of the anime follows the life of an orphan, Ciel Phantomhive. He is in the pursuit of finding the people who killed his parents. I would highly recommend this anime especially those who are a fan of classic anime.
The Demon Girl Next Door (2019)
The demon girl next door is a new anime that you should also not miss watching. Though it’s not that great compared to other anime series like Demon Slayer, it still a good watch for sure.
Go watch this anime if you are looking for one that will give you a good laugh. The anime is silly and pretty much hilarious throughout. It is not just a demon anime with magic powers but it also has a slice of life touch. The main characters are pretty much effective in bringing fun to this anime. Especially the main characters Yuuko and Momo. It’s not the usual show since its a demon girl anime. We all know that most often, demon anime characters are boys.
This classic demon anime is a must-watch for everyone. I suggest anyone new to anime should watch this first. Though it’s an old anime, you’ll certainly enjoy watching it especially the love story of the main characters Inuyasha and Kagome.
The whole story is entertaining, the characters are likable and easy to remember plus good artwork. All these make the anime so good to follow. Though it’s a fun anime, you will discover that it also has its dark and violent side. I think this makes it more interesting.
Yu Yu Hakusho (1992)
Yu Yu Hakusho is yet another classic anime where our main characters battle different kinds of demon in a different world. Even our main character Yusuke has the blood of a demon. He journeys together with his friends Hiei, Kurama and Kuwabara in order to protect the Earth from evil people.
Though the anime is old, you’ll still enjoy the fight scenes in this anime. The characters are very much interesting as well so you’ll be motivated to watch all its episodes. It’s a good story about true friendship.
Demon Lord, Retry! (2017)
Demon Lord, Retry is an isekai anime. It’s the story of Hakuto Kunai who got transported to a fantasy world where his body is one of his online game characters. He eventually met Aku which he saved and their story started from there.
The first thing I noticed with this anime is that it does not take the serious type of anime like Overlord and Goblin Slayer. In the first few episodes I have watched, it tries to make things lighter with some funny scenes. Which most of the time worked, in my own perspective.
Devil Is A Part-Timer! (2013)
This show is an isekai anime where the main protagonist the Devil himself got transported to the real world. So it’s kind of a unique setup where the main character is transported to a fantasy world. This time, its the Demon King – Satan who was sent to the real world as an escape route.
And since the anime devil known as Satan is now on the real world, of course, he could not anymore use his powers to the fullest. That is why he is trying to survive as a normal person who works in a fast-food restaurant.
What I liked about this anime is its fun to watch. It’s entertaining enough to keep on watching each episode.
High School dxd (2012)
If you are a fan of harem, genre, then you’ll definitely love this demon anime. The best thing with high school DXD is it has a good storyline. This fact together with cool characters and funny scenes makes it an enjoyable anime to watch.
The whole story of this anime is quite simple which makes it great. It’s not too dragging and complicated, just enough to make it fun. The animation and character design are both excellent. Though something changed a bit on Season 4. I think the previous 3 seasons were better in terms of animation and design. I would recommend this anime to anyone even those who just started watching anime.
Demon King Daimao (2010)
Demon King Daimao is the story of Akuto Sai who went to a magical academy. Unfortunately for Akuto, he also learned in this school that his future job will be a Demon King. After people learned about this, all eyes are on him including all villains.
The good thing about this anime is the different plot it offers to viewers. But, if you are looking for a serious type of anime, this will not entertain you. However, if you want to have a good laugh while watching an anime, then it’s one that you should try.
When it comes to the artwork, it is not outstanding but good enough for me. The animation is better compared to individual character designs. You will surely have fun watching this anime considering how fun the main characters are. I suggest when you watch this anime, don’t try to expect something, just enjoy it and you’ll definitely end up having a good laugh.

Another excellent anime in the horror genre is Parasyte. The very first time I saw it, I was immediately hooked. Maybe it's because of the interesting character and the story itself. I find the story unique and very much entertaining that is why watching from one episode to another is not a problem. It is set in an apocalyptic time which one of my preferences in watching an anime. Aside from being a horror anime, I also find it full of heart and emotion. You will know once you watch the anime.
When we Cry (2006)
Though not that much of a horror anime, since this anime comes with a lot of brutalities, this earned its slot on our list. Generally, when you watch this anime, it will be mostly about trying to find the hidden truths. It's an anime with a big amount of mystery. The setting is in a village with a bloody practice and beliefs. And during this time, people could just suddenly disappear and people believe that such incident the action of their patron God. The anime is a series of stories or arcs that start in a terrifying scene then everything goes back to the time before such a scene was reached.

This horror anime got me hooked right from the first episode. The main characters are cool and exciting to watch especially on the fight scenes. It has an engaging story plus even the antagonists are something that you'll also look forward to watching. The setting is in the horrific and apocalyptic time of Zombies. If you are a fan of the walking dead and Attack on Titan, you should consider watching this one. Aside from being a horror anime it still has a taste of drama and some good funny moments.
Deadman Wonderland (2011)
This anime is certainly one of the best thriller, horror anime I have watched. It's an underrated anime with good action scenes.

The introduction of the main character comes with a terrific murder scene where his entire class was murdered. As to what happens next after this, its for you to find out. The best thing about this anime is its unique battles and interesting characters. And for a horror show, it's dark and bloody.

The anime and soundtrack are both great. The fight scenes are awesome and you will surely appreciate how detailed the character designs were. This anime will keep you excited till the end with its story about blood, drugs and community horror.
From the New World (2008)
This is a multi-layered mystery anime series a very interesting villain. Though the art is kind of cheap on some occasions, the weight of the characters filled this gap. The anime is full of suspense, horror, and mystery. The story started showing the simple life of students then it slowly changed into a dangerous adventure. The art style and animation are not that great, but it's still good enough. I would recommend watching this anime mainly because of its interesting story. It's an excellent anime for mystery and horror fans in the anime world.
Tokyo Ghoul (2018)
This is a must-see anime for those who are into the violent and horror genre. One of the good things about this anime is that you could feel the intense feeling of the characters. Like when they are stressed, in fear and about to die. It had successfully lived up to its genre by making its audience feel intense emotions. The anime is set in a world where there are Ghouls. These are creatures who do not eat regular food. Instead, they take as food the blood, flesh, and organs of human beings. The anime revolves around the story of Kanenki who simply wanted to have a normal life but ended up becoming a Ghoul.
It's another zombie outbreak anime and since Zombies are here, it's an anime I did not miss. It has a unique story and a unique main character. Though it does not stand-out among the zombie-horror anime, it's still a good one to watch. The art style and animation are not that good and the story is not that much compelling as well. However, I would way that I still have fun watching it.
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.
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.
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.

Tenka Hyakken: Meiji-kan e Youkoso!
The Tenka Hyakken franchise centers around the “Mitsurugi,” maidens who are physical incarnations of ancient swords.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Upcoming anime 2020
Certainly, there is a lot of wonderful upcoming anime in 2020 and below are some of the best that you should watch out for.

Top Samurai Anime 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.
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 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 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 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.
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
Demon Eyes Kyo
The strongest samurai in anime
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.

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 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 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 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
