Ippo-fighting-anime

People don’t tend to take interest in sport anime much. However, Hajime no Ippo is just fantastic. There’s so much more to this anime than just the sport of boxing. There’s a lot of wonderful character development and comedy mixed in. In fact, this anime’s strongest selling point is the way characters develop over time. I’d recommend this if you want an inspiring, heartfelt and charming story with likeable characters. It is also considered among best anime series of all time.

 3. Space Dandy

Dandy-Anime

This is similar to Cowboy Bebop but it’s a full fledged comedy. Space Dandy is insane and doesn’t cares about continuity. The series is about an alien hunter called Dandy. He travells with a robot and a cat-otter hybrid creature named Meow. These three dimwits go through space on epic and funny adventures which will make you roll on the floor.

Genre: Comedy, Science Fiction

Yuki gets forced to fight for his life against 12 other people who can now predict the future in a strange and unique way.

5. Welcome to the N.H.K.

welcome-to-nhk-anime

This show is a black comedy. It seems really light hearted and hilarious but soon shows its darker side. The story follows Tatsuhiro Sato, a university drop out who’s been unemployed for four years. He’s basically a shut in and has fabricated a conspiracy. One day, a girl appears, wanting to “cure” him of his shut in ways. The story then goes on to explore how Sato interacts with modern society, how characters can deal with depression, isolation and even goes on to explore Japanese subcultures.

7. Monogatari

Monogatari-anime

This anime is too weird. The main character used to be a vampire but turned back to normal. The series follows him finding other people who have supernatural powers and helps them in getting rid of it. The animation is gorgeous and the story is weird but very interesting. The execution of the show is very clever and well thought out.
