Anime that contain the otherworldly and enigmatic beings from space! Even if it's just for a single scene, if it has 'em, it's here!

Approachable shows that require no prior knowledge of anime to appreciate. Determined by lack of tropes, lack of fanservice, resemblance to western media, and short length

These are my personal recommendations for newbies getting into anime. There's plenty of variety in the titles I've selected, which should give a decent idea as to what anime is capable of as a storytelling medium (whether it be the good, the bad or the utterly bizarre) and should help in developing individual taste and preferences, using which budding anime fans can branch out and discover more niche and specific anime based on their predilections. The order in which the titles have been listed is roughly what I would recommend watching them in, but it can be messed around with according to the viewers' liking.

The best of the best in the comedy department. If there was a time machine to go back in time, I would do it for each of the anime listed here, ordered from the best to the least (again).

Disclosure:Items that weren't meant as a comedy/have another major subject but that are just as funny were not added in this list. This includes shows like season 1 from "Oregairu", "Haikyuu", "Nisekoi", "Mob Psycho" and such other examples.

Warning!: The items listed in here may have side-effects such as dying of laughter, however not everyone might experience this so check with your doctor before. Grand blue was not listed in here for various reasons which will not be disclosed. Viewer discretion is advised.

Anime with a loner protagonist. Well, at least at the start. I'm only including the ones where the solitary mindset has been somewhat emphasised.

Not all animes are full of love or make you happy. But there are animes will make you feel excite, thrilled, and feel the adrenaline rush. Who wouldn't like action stories? Action shows can be always exciting, especially when it comes to anime. These are my recommendations and collection for action animes.

These animes were the landmarks in anime industry. Critically acclaimed shows and popular for its story, characters, development, and the amazing experience that the audience might feel. Some of them are old and modern, but it has the same level of "masterpiece" that I've seen so far.

Series with no filler, but some series may have mixed filler in one or two episodes, but you probably won’t even notice.

Anime series with the most OP Protagonists!
Most of these are Isekais or VRMMOs where the protagonist enters a new world and gains incredible powers, but the list also includes protagonists who were born powerful or became powerful in their own world.

Who do you think would win in a battle between these protagonists?

Most adaptations are, at best, on par with the original. Some aspects are better, some worse, so it's down to preference as to how to enjoy a story. There are, of course, many, *many* outright stinkers that make one think the original was far worse than it actually was. But sometimes there comes an adaptation made with such outstanding effort, it elevates the source material onto a completely new level of experience: either through masterful editing or reimagining of the original narrative, or visionary direction, or incredible sound design, or career-topping performance from animators and/or voice actors.

This list covers anime adaptations that I consider far and away superior to their printed source materials. To the point where there isn't any need at all to read the original as long as the adaptation exists because everything is just better in the latter.

Do note that I don't necessarily consider all of these shows great per se; the only condition for them to be here is to be much superior to the original work across the board. A notable example of a horribad manga somewhat saved by outstanding adaptation effort is Erased. Similarly, while Devilman: Crybaby is contentious by itself, almost all of its faults lie with Go Nagai's original, and Masaaki Yuasa's version still manages to mitigate many of them.

Also note that I'm omitting sequels, subsequent seasons, etc., to avoid clutter, and in MOST (but not all!) cases they would also apply. Notable exceptions exist, e.g. One-Punch Man season 2. In all other cases I'll either use the first installment in the series or the one I consider the best-made (for example, if it's a movie with greater production values than the rest of the series).

See also the opposite of this list: Outstanding manga with incredibly disappointing adaptations:

More entries will be added in the future. Existing entries are subject to revision.

This list constitutes my personal views and stances. If something isn't on it, it likely means I haven't watched it or am not familiar enough with the original to have a qualified opinion. Feel free to shoot me suggestions via DMs, but make sure you have a convincing argument if it's not something that's already on my main manga/anime list. I don't promise it'll end up here, but I will consider all suggestions.

If you've gotten tired or bored with the common trope of the main character trying to get stronger to save something or somebody. If you just want to take a breather and take a break without worrying about the main character for a while - although I can't guarantee it for all of them - this list is for you (one entry per series - no sequels, etc.). These are only a few of all out there and I ran out of space, so if I missed one, I'm so sorry!

Title explains itself.I hate romance.I said comedy but sometimes it can get serious like in some Gintama arcs but other than that they are very hilarous imo. Also if you don't like ecchi just search a bit on the net.I think you can find your answers there.
