Hi, I’m Yuki, the editor!
Nowadays, there are famous anime such as NARUTO and Dragon Ball. Currently many of the anime noted in Japan are also popular overseas, such as One Punch Man and Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, aren’t they?
I’ve been thinking what easily accessible anime are, and picked up five works off the top of my head. Why don’t you try recommending them to persons who are not interesting in anime?
This is a famous anime released in 1988. The story takes place in Japan in 2019.
This work had a great impact on the world of anime because of its visual expression and realistic characters.
Its opening bike scene is especially famous. You will find the scene made very carefully even if you watch it now. This anime is enough enjoyable.
This is a Sci-fi anime set in the solar system centered at Mars in 2071. The story depicts the energetic adventure of bounty hunters, or Spike Spiegel and other crew members traveling on a rickety spaceship “Bebop”.
Though you can say it is like Lupin III (Lupin the Third) for explanation purpose, their contents are totally different from each other.
Cowboy Bebop is full of great appeal including its atmosphere, view of the world, music, and charming protagonist. The more you watch this anime, the more you would get into it. I really recommend this work!
Laputa: Castle in the Sky
This is a representative work of Studio Ghibli. The anime is also famous for the phenomenon that many of the Japanese viewers recite the spell of extinction, “barus” in unison on Twitter every time it is aired in Japan. LOL.
A castle floating in the sky and the adventure of a boy and girl. Just the thought of these things is exciting, isn’t it?
In addition, a lot of distinctive characters appear, and the action scenes are packed with various means of expression unique to anime. This is really one of the exciting anime.
Furthermore, the BGM. The BGM of this work is fantastic. You must prick up your ears.
I think quite a lot of users outside Japan may also have seen this anime in recent years.
The mystery of giants, the mystery of the protagonist, and vaguely perceptible conspiracies. This is the story of a youth struggling to gain freedom in the world ruled by despair and fear.
I can’t say but that you should take a look at this anime.
Then you won’t be able to stop watching it, being curious about how the story unfolds.
This is an anime series aired in winter 2016, and my favorite anime lately.
“It is not easy to live.”
Just like this phrase also used in the introduction to the work, this anime depicts how the characters own nothing to live their life in the realistic ‘other world’ shaped very carefully. Many scenes portrayed in the style of water-color paintings let us immerse ourselves in the beautiful ‘other world’.
Here I have recommended five anime. How do you like them?
Please let me know your recommendations if you have any. Thanks. 🙂
