In the previous post about anime, I gave plenty of reasons for you to seriously pick anime and start watching it. But if you are a newbie to the Anime world and don't know where to start, don't worry this article will help you.
There are plenty of genres for you to choose from and start watching. The list includes the evergreen Romance, Rom-com, Action & Adventure, Mystery, Horror, Thriller, Sci-Fi and even Cooking genre. Yes, you have heard that right! Whatever genre you want, there are plenty of shows to watch. So without further ado let's get started.
1) Death Note
One day a normal high school student named "Light Yagami" finds the "Death Note", a mysterious black notebook that can kill anyone as long as the user knows both the target's name and face and after that his high school life and the whole Japan changes for good (?). To know more about this mysterious book, grab some popcorn and dig in to get the adrenaline of a lifetime while watching this detective crime thriller!
2) Attack on Titan
The main protagonists of this series were enjoying their lives as usual in the restricted space they have but one day suddenly man-eating titans appear on their faces and tragedy happens. Will Eren Jaeger along with Mikasa Ackerman and Armin Arlert recover from the tragedy and help save humanity or is there a bigger scheme of things awaiting them? Only one way to find out! Go and enjoy this epic Action Thriller!!
3) My Hero Academia
In a superhero world where children get superpowers (known as quirks) at an early age and dream of becoming heroes, there is one child who doesn't get his so-called superpower and gets dejected (yeah you guessed it right, he's our main protagonist) but still wants to perceive dream of becoming a hero. To know what circumstances await him you need to go and watch!
4) Lovely Complex
Here's some Rom-Com for you if you are into it. Lovely Complex is one of the best anime shows to be made under this category. As far as the story goes the main protagonists, Koizumi Risa and Ootani Atsushi labeled as a comedy duo by their homeroom teacher due to their personalities and the stark difference in their heights, struggle to find love for themselves. What happens next is for you to know!
5) Your Lie In April
Hmph...Where to begin? This is one of the best animated shows I would say. Starting from animation to the background score, everything is top-notch. The story is of Kosei Arima, the main protagonist who is a piano prodigy dominates various music competitions and becomes famous among child musicians, but also controversial. When his mother Saki dies suddenly, he has a mental breakdown while performing at a piano recital; this results in him no longer being able to hear the sound of his piano even though his hearing is otherwise perfectly fine. How he overcomes this problem is the rest of the story with a twist that slowly reveals itself towards the end. Indeed, this is one of the saddest anime I have ever watched. I don't recommend this for "Re-Watch" because it hurts terribly to do it! Go and experience it for yourself to understand!!
6) Assassination Classroom
One day you wake up and realize that the moon is reduced to crescent shape after a monster destroyed 70% of it and later you realize that he wants to teach you. Sure this sounds crazy and dangerous but this is the only option he gave to the humans. Will the junior high school students be successful in getting rid of this monster or is there more to the story here?
