Top Five Anime You Should Watch To Start Off Your Summer!
Everyone knows about Naruto and Once Piece. If you are looking to add some good quality spice to your anime watching list, this list is definitely for you!
Here is my list of Animes you should be watching:
#5 Attack On Titan- Season one of AoT was ferocious and blow up instantly over here in the states. Odds are you’ve probably heard of it but if you are on the fence about it, it is definitely worth the watch. Season two of the anime is still a while away so you can watch this one at your own pace. It is only 25 episodes long. My friend and I knocked it out in two viewings and thought it was great. It has its flaws, of course. I am not a huge fan of Eren until about episode 23 or so, but the other main characters make up for that. Plus the titans are some of the cooler villains I have seen and only get cooler as the season progresses. Watch as the human race tries to take Earth back in this action thriller! It is a great starting point to kick off your summer anime indulgence. You can watch this on crunchy roll and netflix
#4 Death Parade- Death Parade is over, clocking out with just 12 episodes, but boy is it ever a thrill ride. The story is about how we get judged after death. Two recently deceased souls enter this realm and compete in intense games of life and death. I wont spoil anything but it definitely gets better as the seasons goes on. The last two or three episodes are SO intense. You can catch this one on Hulu
#3 Amagi Brilliant Park- If you are looking for something a little more light-hearted and a lot more humorous then look no farther than Amagi Brilliant Park. A high schooler, Kanie, is asked to be the acting the GM and is tasked with the job of getting the desired amount of visitors in three months or the park will close down. The main characters, Kanie, Latifah, and sento, are very likable but the three mascots steal the show. Crunchyroll has twelve episodes so is not hard to finish but you wont want to stop once you have started. It is brilliant.
#2 Is it Wrong To Try to Pick up Girls in a Dungeon?- This is the first anime on this list that is still being updated weekly. It has become one of my top favorite animes in its short time. Ive only seen about the first eight episodes of Sword Art Online but IIWTTTPUGIAD plays a lot like SAO from what ive seen. Gods come down to live with us humans and form Familia’s. The God’s are the head of each Familia and they get the humans to go into dungeons. The humans goals are to go deeper into the dungeons. It is not set in a video game world like SAO but the characters level up, learn spells, and fight monsters much like a character would in an rpg. There is a weird love decagon going on where every female character seems to be in love with Bell, the main character. But I stick around for Bells progression from a weak fighter that no one wanted as their partner to now the slightly better version of him ten episodes in. With only ten episodes, itll be easy to catch up with.
Two way tie for first
We have a two tie for number one
#1 Assassination Classroom- This show is awesome! Brief plot recap without spoilers: An alien lands on Earth and we cannot kill it. The alien decides he wants to teach a class of reject students in hopes they can make better exam grades then the head of class kids. The only catch is the kids also have to find a way to kill the alien by next summer or he will destroy earth. When I first heard this plot I thought it was the craziest sounding plot, but nearly 20 or so episodes in and I am addicted. I am so pumped to see where it goes. It is only about 20 episodes in, so catching up shouldn’t be a problem, but it is updated every Friday on Hulu.
#1 Parasyte- The Maxim- This is an absolute gem. I started watching it when it was on its final arc, and probably finished it in three sittings. It has 24 episodes all on crunchyroll and is over, so you can catch up easily. It is based off a 1980’s manga series but the message it delivers is still true today. When these new species start emerging on earth, humans fear for their extinction. These creatures, later named parasytes, latch to a humans bloodstream and travel to the brain. From their the parasytes than feed on humans to survive It brings into question the hierarchy of living species and how important life is. It is absolutely gory in an awesome way but it also profoundly beautiful and has a lot of heart and thought. It is a much watch for sure!
Enjoy your summer of Anime right!
