Must Watch Anime

Are you hunting for another decent anime to watch? Can’t you make up your mind on what to watch amidst the countless of anime to choose from? Then I hope this guide can help you.

I have watched a lot of anime however I will only include those I think are great and enjoyable to watch. I will not mention those anime that I have watched but did not satisfy me.

This is page is under construction…I will add more anime every now and then.

1. Natsume Book of Friends

  • Natsume Yuujincho                       (1st season)
  •  Zoku Natsume Yūjin-chō             (2nd season)
  • Natsume Yūjin-chō San                 (3rd season)

 I can’t really tell why I like this anime so much; once I’ve started watching this anime I can’t stop and when it’s over I wanted to watch more.

 The story is about a kid (Natsume) who has the ability to see spirits and elementals and also he has this very cool guardian named Madara-sama or Nyanko-sensei. It’s really about his journey in accepting who he is despite the fact that seeing things that normal people couldn’t see makes him an outcast. Please don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the story I told you, there’s much more to this anime than a kid having supernatural capability. I guarantee that you will enjoy watching this anime. It has everything in it, comedy, fantasy, monsters fighting, sometimes terrifying scenes and adventure as well as lessons in life. Nonetheless, inspite everything this well-made anime has, it never ceases to make you feel light after every episode, that feeling of peace and satisfaction you feel is priceless and very rare.

2. Ride Back

 This one is for mecha-anime fans. What makes this unique from all the mecha related anime I’ve watched so far is that, this one has a girl protagonist, not some boyish type of girl but a girly-girl type, she even dances ballet for crying out loud. One of the things I like about this anime is that the story does not drag and does not contain any cliff-hangers yet it makes you want to see more of her. Somehow, her pains and frustrations, gets to you and it makes you wonder  what will happen to her; a ballet dancer, trying to continue her passion for dancing in riding a robotic-motorcycle just because her legs cannot do it for her anymore.

 Synopsis:

In the future, an organization called the GGP has taken control of the world. Rin Ogata was a promising up-and-coming ballet dancer, but suffered a serious injury while dancing and decided to quit. Years later in college, she comes across a club building and soon finds herself intrigued by a transforming motorcycle-like robotic vehicle called a “Rideback”. She soon finds that her unique ballet skills with balance and finesse make her a born natural on a Rideback. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rideback)

 3. Ga-Rei Zero

 I really like this anime so much because even though there are a lot of anime about monsters and zombies out there, this one simply stands out because of its unique and very touching story. I hopelessly cried so much on this anime.

 The story actually revolves on two very strong female characters which are best of friends, they even call themselves sisters. However, a tragedy happened that caused one of them to hunt the other. As the story goes a long, you will be force to answer this grave question: “Will you kill the person you love, because of love?”…and would you?

4. Nodame Cantabile

 To be really…really…honest, this is the first romantic anime I’ve watched. I don’t really like watching anime purely surrounding the areas of romance and comedy, even in actual movies, I don’t watch them. I don’t know why, I get bored watching them.

 However, this one is different because even though it is a romantic anime and it contain the undying comedic factor, this anime brings something different. I guess because the story focused on a slightly retarded girl, who is exceptionally good in the art of music particularly in playing the piano. I watched this anime because I wanted to know what will happen to the retard girl and the one she hopelessly fallen in love with.

5. Fairy Tail

 Actually Fairy Tail is an adventure kind of anime that teases viewers on tiny romantic moments between Natsu and Lucy but the anime most revolves on great fight scenes and comedy. You just can’t stop laughing on this anime though it also has its serious moments. This actually made me read the manga because the anime was kind slow and I just can’t get enough with this show. That’s how addicting and good it is that anyone who watches will consider big time reading the manga.

 Though this is made by the same manga artist that created Rave Master and yes, they might have small similarities; but Fairy Tail in some way just stands out and is so much better. You have to watch it to find out.
