Anime is very popular in Asian culture. It has also spread its popularity in other countries such as the United States, parts of Europe and South America.
Some of the most popular anime are action and fantasy type anime. I am going to introduce you the most popular ones at this moment.
This anime is still on going as the time of writing, but I believe it is about to get to the end stages. This anime is about the story of a young boy named Naruto, who was looked down upon because he was sealed with the nine-tails demon fox that destroyed the Konoha village. He grew up trying to win approval from his village. One day, he vows to become the Hokage of the village and gain respect from his peers. Fast forward, we have Naruto Shippudden, where he is all grown up and ready to tackle the most powerful enemy in the series, Uchuha Madara. As much as I love this anime, the only complain I have is the amount of fillers. Other than that, it is a great anime full of cool fighting scenes and comedy.
Meet Light Yagami, the self-proclaimed justice ruler. In this psychological, suspense and thriller anime, a Shinigami called Ryuk dropped a supernatural note book known as the “Death Note”. Light finds this book and realizes he could kill anyone if he knew his face plus name and wrote down the person’s name in the note book. With this new found power, he creates his own twisted sense of justice and it is up to a special detective to stop this madness!
With a combination of mecha, action and thriller instilled in this brilliant anime, it is no surprise this is a big hit among anime fans. Japan has been invaded by Britannia and is colonized by them. Lelouch is a Britannia prince that was thrown into Japan as a bargaining chip after her mother was killed. As a result, her sister Nunnally becomes blind and is wheelchair bound because of this. Lelouch then vows to get his revenge. With the help of an unexpected incident, Lelouch gains the power of the “Geass”, where he can control one’s movement against their will with eye contact for one time. It is then he plans his uprising against the Britannia Empire.
These 3 anime are rather popular among many anime fans. If you are new to anime, I highly suggest that you watch the above anime. I guarantee you that you will like at least one of these. If not you can always check out other genres of anime that is available out there.
