So, you want to know NicoEldries’ Top 10 anime of all time? Didn’t ask? Well you’re going to get the full list anyway, let’s go! Here is the full list on my Top 10 Favorite anime.
#10 – DEATH NOTE
Death Note is unique. Death Note takes you on a journey that no anime (to this date) has done. It takes you through the journey of the villain. It does this in such a well manner that you develop a love/hate relationship with the main character. Light Yagami has to be the most tainted protagonist I’ve ever seen, and his character is amazing. If you have never seen it, I would highly recommend it. It is a must see for all Anime Fans.
#9 – 5 CENTIMETERS PER SECOND
This is on the list because the art is just amazing. The title is a play on how long it takes for Sakura (Cherry Blossom) petals fall from the tree to the ground, but the anime isn’t about Cherry Blossoms. Rather it is a look on human relationships, mainly love interests. I won’t spoil it, but it’s visually appealing and a wonder to watch.
#8 – MIRAI NIKKI / FUTURE DIARY
Mirai Nikki has to be one of the best Yandere Anime I’ve seen thus far. It’s close to tying with Higurashi’s Ryuuguu Rena, but Mirai Nikki takes the spot because the plot was a bit better. I know Yuno can get a bit annoying with how she calls Yuki, but let’s face it, the story is amazing and Yuno can kick some serious butt. I personally enjoy Mirai Nikki because it’s a great example of how Anime isn’t just for kids, but for adult audiences as well. Plus it’s a bit easier to stomach the scenes in here than when watching Saw or any other gory movie. I could eat dinner normally watching Mirai Nikki, so thank you Anime for helping me eat my dinner properly while watching Thriller/Super Violent and Gory stuff.
#7 – DRAGON BALL SERIES
Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT and the new Dragon Ball Super is a series I have grown up with. This is where it all started for me, watching Dragon Ball in the morning before going off to school and I loved it. Sure there are far better Anime now, but the vital key to all this can be summarized in one word; nostalgia. I love Dragon Ball and that will never leave me. I will always try to train to defeat Goku (or at least Yamcha), always strive to become a Super Saiyan (or give up and dye my hair blonde) and will continue to tell myself that the plastic Dragon Ball replicas I have will one day grant me my wishes. But regardless, it’s a great anime to watch.
#6 – LAPUTA: CASTLE IN THE SKY
This is another timely classic done by the famous Studio Ghibli. You want an anime movie that has a great story, amazing art and enjoyable, watch Castle in the Sky. For an anime movie that was made in 1986, this is a gem to behold. If i hadn’t told you it was made in 1986, you may not believe it to be from that era of time. I will refrain from saying much more on it, but if you want to learn a bit about Anime History and want to watch a classic, then Laputa will not disappoint.
#5 – KILL LA KILL
Kill la Kill is honestly an all in one package. It has everything you need as a male fan; fan service, action, great art style, comedy, character development and a complicated story line that gets you seriously questioning your current beliefs and views. So it’s basically an Anime Matrix but better. Despite the fan service, Kill la Kill has a great plot and the action is great. It honestly is a great anime to watch, just don’t watch it when your parents are around…they will question.
#4 – KUROKO NO BASUKE (KUROKO’S BASKETBALL)
I was honestly never into sports anime until I watched Kuroko no Basuke. It’s action packed, and over exaggerates basketball to such a degree you wish you could play basketball like them. This seriously makes you wish the NBA would add special effects and crap to all the games to make it look colorful and interesting. If you are an NBA fan, watch this at your own risk; it’ll change your ball game forever. All jokes aside, it is a great anime to watch. It really gets you pumped up and want to pick up a basketball.
#3 – NO GAME NO LIFE
This anime is another gem. I won’t say too much more, but the plot, characters, art style and overall vibe of this anime is glorious. It’s sad that a second season is unlikely to come out, but it is a great anime to watch.
#2 – ONE PUNCH MAN
Right now, this has to be my most favorite anime to watch. One Punch Man just plays to my manliness so much. Super heroes, super villains and the most hilarious protagonist of all time. The plot is simple, yet it’s one of the best (if not the best) Anime released in October 2015. Watch it and see what I mean.
#1 – ATTACK ON TITAN
Attack on Titan just has the most appealing plot, characters and art style in my honest opinion. You are literally thrown into a situation where you know as much as the main characters. As much information you know is all that the main characters know, and you are stuck in a situation where it is do or die time, or else humanity will fall. People who love being on the edge of your seat will love this anime. It’s survival at its best, mind, strength and loyalty will be tested in this situation. How will humanity overcome the obstacle that is known as Titans?
Well that’s my list. I hope this gives you an idea of what Anime to watch. For those that are new to the Anime Fandom or are looking to see why people love Anime so much, watch these series/movies and I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Don’t like my list? Well you can take that opinion and…-clears throat- you can take that opinion and let us know what your favorite anime is, or even your own pinion on the list I’ve given. Just remember, everyone has a different opinion and if you think Mirai Nikki sucks well you can…-clears throat- be kind when sharing your opinions. =D. This is your boy, NicoNicoEldries, signing out.
