we are providing here the list of Top 10 Most Popular Anime Series. Check it below
It is German and literally means “the song of the elves giving this anime a peaceful and beautiful sound. However, the first seven minutes of this anime are probably the most brutal in anime history. All in all, this anime is high in brutality and nudity, which is one of the reasons it’s so widely known.
The other reason is, of course, the plot. In the world of Elfen Lied there exists a humanoid species called the Diclonius. They differ from humans in that they have two horns on their heads and varying numbers of invisible arms, called vectors, on their backs. The story focuses on morality, revenge, and identity, among other themes.
The somewhat complex storyline focuses on Lucy, a Diclonius, who escapes from a research facility and is take in by the cousins Khota and Yuka, who protect Lucy and her second personality “Nyu” (like I said, its complicated). To get a better idea of this gripping series, I highly recommend you watch it.
First aired in 1984, Dragon Ball is the oldest series on this list. It enjoyed high popularity during its time, and would later receive two sequels. The revised edition aired today is not as well-known, as newer anime conquer the scene.
Simply put, Dragon Ball and its follow-up series follow the quest of young Gohan to find the seven magic dragon balls, and later to save the world from various foes using super natural powers. During the progress of the series, characters achieve a way to continue to aid their friends after death, even returning to Earth for brief periods of time.
All in all, Dragon Ball is an action packed anime that has somewhat lengthy cycles of fighting. It is especially recommendable for younger viewers, and those who like old style anime.
Admittedly, some people may have given this anime a higher rank on the list. The anime is still shown on TV around the world, and its sequel Naruto: Shippuden is equally successful. However, Naruto is aimed at younger ages than most of the other anime on this list (making it somewhat boring for older anime fans), and many of the characters are very stereotypical to shonen manga.
As for the plot, Naruto follows the young ninja Naruto Uzumaki and his friends in their development and journeys as Naruto attempts to become the most recognized ninja in his village. The action/fighting scenes are nicely balanced with comedy scenes, which gives it more balance than Dragon Ball.
I love this series, every single aspect of it. One Piece constantly delivers intense fights, emotional moments, dramatic events, and most important of all, hilarious character interactions and dialogue! After all, this is a comedic adventure filled with your usual shounen elements (witty and hilarious elements)!
One Piece is also the series that made me cry the most times. It really has a lot of tragedy that makes you feel for these characters, feel their pain and anguish in what it is one of the strongest points of One Piece: the characters’ detailed backgrounds and how those affected their personalities and goals.
The story only keeps getting more and more exciting as you venture with the crew and new events unfold. Everything about One Piece is simply way above average. If you consider the genre it falls into (shounen, teen show), One Piece is one of the best things coming out of it.
At episode 400 I can now say, this is turning out to be one of the most exciting journeys I’ve ever had the pleasure to participate in, be it in the anime medium or in any other media in general.
Quite frankly, Hellsing is just plain cool. Based on a still-running manga, Hellsing features one arc and several OVAs. Though differing from the manga somewhat in terms of plot, most of the characters are the same.
Hellsing is another supernatural anime. It follows the work of the Hellsing organization, a secretive British organization that destroys vampires with the help of the ancient vampire Alucard. The series shows great action and some suspense. Don’t let the vampire thing turn you off Hellsing is nothing like a certain teenage romance fad. Let’s just say its no match for an invincible double gun carrying vampire with a knack for destroying all those who oppose his superiors.
I ll admit, I wasn’t sure if I should switch this anime with number two on this list or not. The reason being that they are so very different. Death Note is an amazing suspense Anime, set in modern day Japan. It focuses on the questions of good and bad, of moral and justice. The characters hold a high intellect, and many plot twists make the storyline unpredictable. Three live-action movies were made based on the anime (one of them being a prequel), though they are not nearly as recommendable as the anime.
The story follows high school student Yagami Light, who finds a mysterious notebook, called Death Note, that allows him to kill whoever’s name is written in it. Light uses this notebook to kill prisoners, but the police soon catch wind. The world’s greatest detective, L, and so a suspense packed cat-and-mouse game ensues as each tries to keep one step ahead of the other.
4.Full Metal Alchemists
Full Metal Alchemist and its sequel are set in industrialization era Europe, in a parallel world where Alchemy is the highest science. It focuses on morality, friendship and brotherhood, philosophy, and equal trade. The anime features light action, suspense and comedy.
After an attempt to revive their dead mother goes terribly wrong, the young alchemists Edward and Alphonse Elric set off on a quest to re-acquire their lost bodies (Edward has lost an arm and leg, Alphonse his entire body). Along the way they are faced with often morally related difficulties. This sometimes very sad anime will keep you gripped.
This show started a bit slow and took some time to develop, but really this is just the nature of this anime. It’s not about a continuous narrative nor is it a character-driven plot. Overall I greatly enjoyed it, apart from 3 or 4 episodes that really didn’t do much for me… which is OK in a 26 episode series. The art, music and fluid animation are all very satisfying.
This sequence of episodes is seriously one of the best I’ve seen in anime: 20/21/24-26. Superb, memorable. This anime gets extra points just because of those.
2.Ouran High School Host Club
Looking for a quiet place to study, Haruhi stumbles upon the Third Music Room, a place where the Ouran Academy Host Club, a group of six male students, gathers to entertain female “clients”. During their first meeting, Haruhi accidentally knocks over and breaks an antique vase valued at and is told to repay the cost in service to the club. Haruhi’s short hair, slouching attire and gender-ambiguous look cause her to be mistaken by the hosts for a male student. The hosts all agree that Haruhi would be a good host, thus making her join the host club. Ultimately she agrees to join the Club as a host herself (dressed as a male) in order to pay off her debt. She agrees to join since she does not mind hosting as long as she can pay the debt off faster. The hosts do later find out that she is, in fact, a girl. They keep this a secret, so no one will be able to tell. The Ouran Private Academy encompasses kindergarten to twelfth grade (along with a university). Most students come from wealthy families, but in special cases, merit scholarships are granted to exceptional students from a lower income bracket. The school’s unofficial motto is”Lineage counts first, wealth a close second,” meaning students with stellar” but low status may be given top priority over those from rich families with lesser pedigrees.
Bleach is one of the most popular anime series. It was produced by studio pierrot. This series is so interesting .
