Oga Tastsumi is a first-year high school student. He is the strongest delinquent imaginable. But despite his strength and reputation, he doesn’t have many friends. That all changes when he meets a baby.

Beelzebub starts off with Oga telling his only friend how he managed to come across this baby and the bizarre events that led up to his finding. It’s a hilarious anime that is light-hearted, so you don’t need to worry about serious plot twists for the most part. I would recommend watching this after dinner on a lazy Monday night

25. Detective Conan

Detective Conan follows a high school detective named Shinichi Kudo. Shinichi was investigating a mysterious organization when he suddenly transformed into a child!

It’s a very long series of about 1016 episodes to date. I can promise you that you won’t complete the series in a random one-night binge-fest. Take your time with Detective Conan and properly go through the plot. There is a reason why it has so many episodes and still is as popular as ever.

24. The God of High School

The God of High School is a comedic, action anime that follows Jin Mori. In this world, half of an island mysteriously disappears. That’s quite concerning, right? So, a secret organization gives out invitations for people to participate in a tournament. The invitations are sent to skilled fighters that have promise and potential.

Why is this battle so enticing? Well, this mysterious organization vows to give the title The God of High School or the winner of the battle anything they want. Obviously, high schooler Jin is intrigued.

23. Radiant

The main character of Radiant is Seth who is a 15 years old who hopes to become a great magician. He also wants to be part of a team that travels to the Radiant. The Radiant is a land that spawns Nemeses or monsters.

Seth is a survivor of a Nemeses attack, so his curiosity gets the best of him. Personally, if I survived a monster attack, I would most likely not want to get myself involved with them again. But if I was the mc of this anime, you would only get one episode, so thank God I’m not.

22. Trigun

The main characters of One Piece and Trigun are easy going people, but when the moment demands it, they are pretty OP.

Trigun is about a wanted man for $60,000,000,000 named Vash the Stampede. He is a cruel, merciless man who has left a trail of heinous deaths behind him. He is capable of flattening cities just for the heck of it. He is the worst of the worst.

But what if I let you in on a secret. Vash the Stampede is actually a kind man with a big heart that wouldn’t even think of stepping on an ant.

21. Yona of the Dawn

The main character of Yona of the Dawn is the only princess of the Empire known as Yona. She lives a happy life, crushing over her childhood friend Soo Won and bickering with her guard Hak.

However, her life takes a turn for the worst when her father is murdered on her sixteenth birthday by the person she held so dear to her heart.  The Empire is taken over and she must flee for her life. Instead of crying in secret, she decides to master archery and take back her kingdom. But, she doesn’t do this alone.

20. Mob Psycho

Mob Psycho 100 is about a boy that goes by the nickname Mob. Mob is not your ordinary middle schooler, he is an Esper. But other than that, he is pretty average. He can’t look his crush in the eyes, he is socially awkward, and he can’t stand up for himself.

It’s refreshing to watch such a relatable, clumsy boy figure out how to control his powers and at the same time make friends along the way.

19. One Punch Man

Saitama is the main character of One Punch Man. The anime is set in City Z, and the world is under constant attack by monsters. Thus, the government hires heroes to protect the citizens from these chaotic creatures. Now you would think being under constant attack gives heroes a run for their money, but no. Not Saitama. In fact, Saitama is bored stupid.

Saitama was previously an unemployed adult who saw life as pointless. That is until a crab monster came across him. As he battled with the monster, a nostalgic emotion sparked his soul. The thrill of a hero. Now Saitama has the ability to destroy any monster with One Punch.

18. Seven Deadly Sins

7 Deadly Sins took the world by storm in 2014-2015. I remember how my IG feed was full of Meliodas x Elizabeth fanart—and I hadn’t even watched it at that time.

7 Deadly Sins focuses on the adopted daughter of King Bartra Liones, Elizabeth. She decides to go on a journey to find people who can protect her family. During her trip, she stumbles across a man named Meliodas. He agrees to help Elizabeth. But what she doesn’t know is that Meliodas is the captain of the Seven Deadly Sins.

17. Tower of God

Tower of God sweeps us off our feet when we come across the kind of betrayal that none of us ever anticipated (That was awful). It’s such a great piece of anime that never left any opening for us to foresee what was going to happen next. It also involves the MC entirely changing his personality after being betrayed by someone he never thought would betray him. Our MC Baam is a naive boy who has never experienced the outside world nor has he interacted with anyone else but a girl his age, Rachel.  Rachel abandons him and wishes to climb up the tower that grants one wish to anybody who has reached the top first. Baam follows her and joins the race to climb up the tower to make her wish come true.

Tower of God is focused on a boy named Twenty-Fifth Bam. What a simple name. However, Bam didn’t live a simple life. He was trapped beneath a Tower with only Rachel, a close friend of his, to keep him company.

Bam wants nothing more than to live with Rachel for the rest of his life. But Rachel wants to enter the Tower. What happens to Bam when Rachel enters the tower and leaves him behind?

16. The Law of Ueki

Ukei no Housoku or The Law of Ueki and One Piece are both about people with special abilities and the importance of friendship. Interesting enough, both teams contain five people. That’s just a cool fact. Anyway, Kousuke is the main character of The Law of Ueki, and he is just as foolish and hungry as Luffy.

In The Law of Ueki, God created a tournament named Battle of the Supernatural Powers. Whoever wins this insane tournament gets to take God’s place in Heaven. There are only 100 candidates for this battle, and Kousuke is one of them.

This anime is very similar to Tower of God, so if you liked that one, you will like The Law of Ueki. Two for two!

15. Black Lagoon

The anime Black Lagoon follows a team of mercenaries known as the Lagoon Company. They are not your classic heroes. Lagoon Company smuggles, kidnaps, and steals goods around the Southeast Asian Seas. Black Lagoon has a very gangster-like aura that many of you would enjoy.

The situations the characters come across are dealt with in a realistic manner that I didn’t expect to see. Each character is complex, and their team aren’t your standard Luffy and his crew. Black Lagoon does have comedic elements, but its tone is more serious throughout the plot. I recommend this anime 100%, even if you didn’t enjoy One Piece. But like why would you be reading this list if you didn’t like One Piece?

14. Vinland Saga

Thorfinn is the main character of Vinland Saga, and he is the son of one of the strongest men that ever sailed the sea. Like any other child with legendary parents, he looks up to his father.

His father was one day called back to fight on the sea. He either had to join the war or lose his village. So, against his will, Thorfinn’s father agrees to fight. While he sails the sea, he fails to realize that Thorfinn sneaked onto the boat without being noticed.

It’s all smooth sailing until his father is ambushed and murdered in front of Thorfinn. Full of anger and hate, Thorfinn is determined to avenge his father and kill the man who murdered him.

13. Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist is about two alchemist brothers named Edward and Alphonse Elric. When they were children, they lost their mother. In the midst of their grieving, they decide to try to bring their mother back to life. They were only kids. Unfortunately, one of them lost his arm and the other lost his entire body.

Instead of turning their backs on alchemy, they decide to keep moving forward to further learn the secrets this magic holds. Why? To get back their bodies.

12. My Hero Academia

My Hero Academia is about a boy named Midoriya who lives in a world where people have Quirks or superpowers. Midoriya wants to become the greatest hero of all time like his beloved All Might. However, Midoriya is Quirkless. He doesn’t have any powers, so he is looked down upon by society.

The plot takes a turn when Midoriya meets All Might. I don’t want to get too sentimental, but My Hero Academia has a special place in my heart. Growing up and feeling so worthless made me connect with Midoriya on a deeper level. When you watch this anime, you will find yourself rooting for Midoriya no matter what the situation entails.

11. Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail is an Action-packed, comedic anime that follows Lucy Heartfilia as she teams up with Natsu Dragneel and joins the Fairy Tail Guild. This series is set in a magical realm where guilds are formed. Each guild has a team of people with magical powers.

Natsu Dragneel is a member of the Fairy Tail Guild and is on a mission to find Dragon Igneel. Lucy decides to help Natsu in finding his parent figure. There are 328 episodes, but don’t worry! There is a manga continuation called 100 Year Quest written that follows the adventures of Lucy and the Fairy Tail Guild.

10. Gurren Lagann

In Gurren Lagann, the Earth is taken over by the Lordgenome or the Spiral King. This king sucks. He is drowned in corruption- kind of like our world today- and he forces humanity to live in isolated villages. Did I fail to mention that these are just villages? They are subterranean villages, meaning they exist underneath the Earth’s surface!

This doesn’t sit well with the two main characters Simon and Kamina. Like any teen, they are curious about the world. So, they set off on an adventure to visit the Earth’s surface.

Alibaba is a commoner who meets a boy named Aladdin. Aladdin is a mysterious lad, for one thing, he can summon a blue spirit by blowing into his flute. Aladdin and Alibaba’s relationship doesn’t start off as heartwarming. Alibaba is seen to be selfish with his desire for riches, and he invites Aladdin on a dungeon-capturing expedition.

Obviously, Alibaba doesn’t do this out of the kindness of his heart, he wants Aladdin’s flute playing abilities. But one thing leads to another, and they along with Morgiana who they later meet, become life-long friends with a thirst for adventure.

I don’t mean to be rude, but both One Piece and Black Clover have clueless main characters. However, the MCs also have supernatural abilities.

Asta is a young kid who is born without any magical powers. That’s tough considering his prime goal is to become the next Wizard King. In his coming-of-age ceremony, Asta miraculously receives a rare five-leaf grimoire. Thrilled, Asta later decides to join the Black Bulls in hopes of achieving his dream.

7. Soul Eater

Soul Eater is about students who dream to become demon hunters or Shibusen. The anime specifically focuses on Maka. Make is a scythe wielder, and funny enough, the scythe is her partner named Soul. Soul transforms into the scythe which is interesting because we see such a great dynamic unfold throughout the series.

One Piece and Soul Eater both display the message of friendship and the importance of teamwork in a comedic and lighthearted light.

6. Toriko

Toriko is actually the name of the main character of this anime. He is a Gourmet Hunter who travels the world in hopes to find the best ingredients for his custom full-course meal. This man is unbelievable. His strength is out of this world, he is very knowledgeable about the produce and livestock, and his stamina is limitless.

It’s a comedic anime that explores the culinary arts in a light that has never been seen in the anime industry. We follow Toriko and his friends on this journey of obtaining the perfect ingredients and supplies for creating his ideal meal.

Bleach is about a teenager named Ichigo Kurosaki who is a normal hot-headed teen. He’s normal, right? Yeah no, he is not. Ichigo has been able to see ghosts ever since he was young. He and his two sisters are one day attacked by an evil spirit called Hollow. Luckily, a Shinigami named Kuchiki Rukia saves them from Hollow.

However, Rukia is terribly injured from the battle and has to transfer her abilities to Ichigo.  Now that Ichigo has special powers, he must undergo relentless training to become a Shinigami to maintain peace between the worlds of death and life.

Dragon Ball Z, who hasn’t heard the infamous ‘KAMI HAMI HAA’ scream! Dragon Ball Z is a lengthy series if I might add so make sure you have enough free nights for this one.

This series is about Goku, who surprisingly isn’t a high schooler, but a full-fledged adult. He and his friends defend and protect the world from intergalactic space fighters. Dragon Ball Z is the second series of the Dragon Ball Franchise, and it consists of 291 episodes.

This specific branch from the franchise was in my opinion, the most enjoyable. I only give you the best.

3. Gintama

If you are looking to laugh out one of your lungs, watch Gintama. I don’t think I’ve ever lost so many brain cells from an anime, and still be so content in losing more.

Gintama is a more comedic anime than the plot packed One Piece, but both series makes you want to slap your thighs numb.

Aliens named Amanto invade Earth and take over Japan. Gintoki is a samurai who does not have an ounce of tolerance or respect for these new alien rulers. He and his pals have burned it in their minds that whatever happens, they must create trouble for Amanto.

2. Naruto

Gotta go with the classic man! Naruto is a hyped anime series, and it deserves to be hyped. It’s long, but it does not disappoint.

A powerful demon named Kyuubi the Nine-Tailed Fox attacks the Hidden Leaf Village and causes mayhem. The Fourth Hokage, Minato Uzumaki, saved the village by sacrificing his life and sealing the demon from his newborn. That newborn’s name is Naruto Uzumaki.

Despite being the son of their savior, Naruto is shunned by the village. He is bullied, but that doesn’t faze Naruto. Nothing will stand in Naruto’s path towards becoming the next Hokage. In this journey of his, he makes friends and new impressions.

Hunter x Hunter is a pretty long anime series that follows a boy named Gon who embarks on a journey to search for his father. Gon’s father is a world-renowned hunter who doesn’t want to be found by Gon weirdly enough. However, Gon is a determined guy.  Along the way, he meets many lifelong friends such as his best friend Killua.

Luffy and Gon are similar in that they both find great people during their adventures, and they will do whatever it takes to protect them from harm’s way
