If a novel has movie, then manga has anime, a type of animation that originated from Japan. Unlike the typical cartoons which are mostly directed toward kids and young adults, anime has a spectrum of shows for people of any age as said by Shae Hazelton. These animations have interesting plot lines that cross cultural differences. Maybe, that’s the reason why it always has a place in every hearts of the people. That’s also the reason why Ane loves Anime! Gosh! I can’t imagine if I have those eyes and lips in real life like anime characters have. By the way, with my love, I would like to give the list of my most favorite anime so far.
When I was 13 years old, I remember watching and loving this anime. I had never seen any other anime shows, and I thought the concept was original and amazing. It has the essentials, with a somewhat unique story and art style. The characters are cliche, and enjoyment is there but short and sweet.
7. Fairy Tail
As well as Naruto, Fairy Tail is going to be the next big thing in anime. Somehow it gives me the same feeling as I’m watching Naruto. There are a lot of characters, a lot of funny moments, and I’m looking forward to the next episode! So I think that if you like Naruto, you may like Fairy Tail too!
6. Sailor Moon
When anime fans start talking about shows that began their interest in Japanese animation, many people point to the fact that their first experience with anime is Sailor Moon. Even when comparing it with today’s new trends, plots, characters and animation, it is easy to notice why Sailor Moon is fondly accepted into the hearts of anime fans around the world.
5. Mirumo de Pon
When I was younger, I would quickly change the channel into where Mirumo De Pon is airing. If I don’t watch a single episode in one day, I’d cry. Although I hated some of the characters like Azumi and Hanruka, I enjoyed it very well. I even wanted to have my own muglox. This anime made me enjoy my childhood days.
4. Hana Yori Dango
If you love Meteor Garden and Boys Over Flowers, then you should also love Hana Yori Dango, the anime version of those two internationally popular shows. The animation style is a bit more old school, but in a way, it’s more endearing than all color shininess. I like the more subdued coloring style in settings and the music fits well.
3. Ano Hana
Dealing with the death of a friend or loved one isn’t easy, no matter how old you are, and everyone comes to terms with their loss in different ways. Ano Hana is a series that sets lofty goals for itself. It is, in essence, a ghost story that aspires to be a poignant drama about love, loss, adolescence and self-discovery. I love that it tries to show us just how powerful an effect death can have on us.
It’s all volleyball, volleyball, volleyball, yet I’m never tired of it despite not being an avid volleyball fan. Haiykuu! does a really good job of developing the characters. You know what each character’s personality is like – what their role is on the court and on the team. Aside from that, the art is very good and the sound, including the voice acting, is really effective.
1. Fruits Basket
Who wouldn’t love these characters especially when they turn into animals? They’re so cute! In addition to that, Fruits Basket is a wonderful and moving story which I consider myself fortunate enough to have been shown by a very close friend. This anime is so amazing it touch upon the strings of my heart. I laughed, I cried, and I truly felt for each of the characters.
