A list of Action anime, of the guns, fists and violence variety, where you don't have to think too hard nor focus on plot development and character development; if you're looking for outstanding stories these might not be for you.

Trying to give some action to action anime that may be lost to time or just haven't generated an audience, all in the while mixing in some big hitters that you might have missed.
Movie, 2009, 1 ep Me:- Author:10
Redline is quite literally the definition of non-stop action, exhilarating from start to finish with very little room to catch a breather. Cars go fast and the Guns go faster.
Lycoris Recoil
TV, 2022, 13 eps Me:- Author:7
Characters feel strong in this anime, you can feel the power behind their decisions and weapons.
Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail

Roberta is a strange character in Black Lagoon but she provides non-stop guns and violence.
Shangri-La Frontier: Kusoge Hunter, Kamige ni Idoman to su
TV, 2023, 25 eps Me:- Author:8
What if boss battles were an anime, this is it. Lots of swordplay and fun abilities.
City Hunter
TV, 1987, 51 eps Me:- Author:7
Comedic gold, episodic meaning you can go and come back where you left.

Wu Shan Wu Xing (2020)

Fog Hill of Five Elements

Really underrated series of short movies by studio Bones.
TV, 2024, 12 eps Me:- Author:5
Wimp of an MC gets to merge with a fighting spirit and fights to lose his virginity. Fairly comedic and has great fight scenes courtesy of MAPPA.
Dead Leaves

A unique movie with colours flying all over your screen. Quick pacing, quirky character designs and no room to shut your eyes.
Super Crooks
ONA, 2021, 13 eps Me:- Author:6
Petty Crimes leading to a big heist. Flashy super powers as you follow these super villains to the end.
No Guns Life 2nd Season
TV, 2020, 12 eps Me:- Author:8
I'm not sure if people had just missed this after season 1 however season 2 fixes a lot of the issues season 1 had and improves on it in almost every way.
Ajin Part 2 OVA
OVA, 2017, 1 ep Me:- Author:9
While watching the original ONA would help understand the world, this OVA can definitely be viewed on its own.
Under Ninja
TV, 2023, 12 eps Me:- Author:7
Slightly confusing plot and a gritty animation style but works in favour for some gruesome action scenes.
3x3 Eyes
OVA, 1991, 4 eps Me:- Author:6
Strange and unique, character designs and monster designs are cool.
Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture
Movie, 1994, 1 ep Me:- Author:7
Very 90's but has a lot of very fun martial art scenes.

Mushikago no Cagaster

Cagaster of an Insect Cage

Mushikago no Cagaster
ONA, 2020, 12 eps Me:- Author:6
Cheap CGI might turn people off but missing out on an interesting story with good character development.
Tekken: Bloodline
ONA, 2022, 6 eps Me:- Author:7
Adaptation of the lore in the Tekken franchise, still a great watch if you don't know much about Tekken.
Youjuu Toshi
Movie, 1987, 1 ep Me:- Author:5
A little outdated now but still a fun watch. One of Studio Madhouse's earlier works and still has the Madhouse vibe to it.


Ikki Tousen: Battle Vixens

TV, 2003, 13 eps Me:- Author:7
Action packed martial arts scenes, lots and lots of fighting.
Triage X
TV, 2015, 10 eps Me:- Author:6
The guns and weapons in this anime are beautiful, excellently animated with a plot to turn your brain off to.
TV, 2016, 12 eps Me:- Author:6
Mechas and Laserbeams flying everywhere accompanied by a good soundtrack.
Jikan no Shihaisha
TV, 2017, 13 eps Me:- Author:5
Chronos Ruler has an interesting power system and while the character development isn't amazing the action scenes make up for it.
Tatakae!! Iczer-1
OVA, 1985, 3 eps Me:- Author:6
a cheesy 80's OVA with Mechas and Aliens, lots of flashing guns and a post apocalyptic world. Short and sweet.

Heibai Wushang

The Unparalleled Black & White

Heibai Wushang
ONA, 2015, 12 eps Me:- Author:6
Under the radar, if you're into Chinese/East Asian mythology this is a great show for that.
Shin Kujakuou
OVA, 1994, 2 eps Me:- Author:4
While the story is quite non-existent the visuals for a 90's OVA are top drawer and if you're looking for something to turn you're brain off to this is a good choice.
Choujin Gakuen Gowcaizer: The Voltage Fighters
OVA, 1996, 3 eps Me:- Author:6
While this isn't a great anime what it does right it does well. With it being a 90's anime the action scenes can feel a bit outdated with lots of epilepsy inducing scenes but overall I quite enjoyed it. Nudity and lots of unnecessary bouncing breasts warning.
