With light comedy, a great cast of characters, and competition related themes. This anime is an inspiring watch.

7. Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War

Genre: Comedy, Psychological, Romance, School, Seinen

Now, here’s an interesting one. We have a psychological anime about high school romance.

The student council president and the vice president at the Shuchiin academy, both have feelings to each other. But they know the unsolicited fact that love is war.

Whoever confesses first loses their edge over the other. The characters, the side characters, as well as the comedy done in this anime, they are all exceptionally well done.

This is a beautifully portrayed story of a sociopathic girl who is on the pursuit of learning the true meaning of the word called, “Love”.

As a child, she never lived the normal life, by the time she was 14, she was already a war weapon capable to taking down skilled soldiers without even flinching. She could hardly understand words, let alone talk.

But the war eventually ended, and now that peace has been attained, she wants to work as an auto. memories doll to understand people’s feelings better.

5. Dorohedoro

Genre: Action, Comedy, Horror, Magic, Fantasy, Seinen

This is the kind of an anime that you probably shouldn’t recommend to kids. There are horror related elements yet at the same time there’s also some casual comedy, all these different aspects of this show work really well together.

There is this uncanny district, where morality and laws are almost non. existent, it is the survival of the fittest. The weak will be crushed by the strong, and there is no leader to keep everyone in check either.

I’d say if you like watching unusual anime; this’ll be a fun watch.

4. A Place Further Than the Universe

Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Drama

The name of this anime certainly sounds a little over exaggerated, but once you watch the anime, you’ll understand exactly why it is named this way.

The story centers around a girl named Shirase who wants to go to Antarctica despite the fact that she is still a high school student; however, after years of effort, she is finally presented with an opportunity in the form of friends.

It’s a beautiful story full of inspiration and adventure. I highly recommend it to all anime fans that are even remotely into adventure.

A Place Further Than the Universe
3. Demon Slayer

Genre: Action, Demons, Historical, Shonen, Supernatural

The most prominent Shonen anime of recent years, there is hardly an anime fan who hasn’t heard about “Demon Slayer”. It is a story of a boy named Kamado Tanjiro and his sister who became a demon.

One day, his life does a 180, the home he knew, no longer had his family waiting for him. His sister was still alive but he later learns that she has also become a demon. Now, what shall he do?

With brilliant animation, jaw dropping osts, and glorious visuals… Demon Slayer is a splendid anime.
