Sick, right?

100 candidates are carefully selected to compete in this tournament. Our main character, Kousuke Ueki, is one of the selected few.

May I also add that the winner will also be granted the power of the Blank Talent? It means exactly as its states—the ability to have a single power of your dreams!

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Episodes: 25

Anime Storyline:

Bakuman. is written by Ohba Tsugumi, the same person who wrote Platinum End and Death Note! If you are familiar with any of his works (which you should be since you’re reading this list), you can definitely tell that Platinum End has the same aura and writing style as Bakuman.

Bakuman. is about Moritaka Mashiro who is extremely skilled as an artist. However, he half-heartedly accepts his fate of living a normal, average life.

I can’t draw a proper stick figure for my life, but some of my friends aim to become great artists. Since I always crash at their place, I noticed how frustrating it is for them when nothing exciting happens in their lives.

Art is a beauty that demands to be created. But how can art be brought to a canvas if the brush refuses to paint?

Genre: Sci-fi, Mystery
Episodes: Season 1: 12, Season 2: 11

Anime Storyline:

Promised Neverland is a great anime to watch. But because we’re all pals here, I’m going to be brutally honest with you all. And don’t question me after I say what I need to say!

Watch the first season of Promised Neverland, then immediately switch to the manga if you want to continue the adventures of Emma, Ray, and Norman.

I will not further explain my statement above.

Promised Neverland is about three best friends named Emma, Ray, and Norman. They live in a house with other kids, and the only adult is called Mama.

It’s all fun and games over there, where the kids are always being tested by their intelligence. Fine, right? Well, things no longer remain fine when Emma gets a bit too curious for Mama’s liking.

Genre: Action, Supernatural
Episodes: 12

Anime Storyline:

Trust me, I’m probably more confused about the order of the Fate/Stay Night franchise than you are. I wish that the series can be titled in a more ordered, numerical fashion. Like how hard is it to name it this way; Fate/Stay 1, Fate/Stay 1, and so on.

Amway, this anime focuses on Shirou Emiya who participates in the Holy Grail War. The winner of this battle royal is awarded a wish. It’s like Aladdin, but deadlier.

We watch people spill blood for their greed. It’s revolting, but true to human nature.

Mei Misaki is a middle schooler who is isolated by her school. Actually, that’s not true. Her isolation extends beyond just her middle school, Yomiyama Middle School. It’s as though she doesn’t exist.

Koichi Sakakibara is our main character that transfers into Mei’s school. He finds himself being drawn to Mei, determined to figure out why her existence is ignored.

I’m going to warn you though, don’t watch this if you can’t handle gore. And I don’t mean watching a nosebleed or two.

The main characters of Ajin and Platinum End have similar yet contrasting control over their powers! I won’t say much about their respected abilities, so watch Ajin to find out.

Ajin was aired in 2016 with a total of two seasons on Netflix! Our main character, Nagai Kei, just wants to live a normal life while striving to become a doctor. It’s a humble wish, right?

Well, things don’t go according to plan for him when he suddenly gets into a traffic accident. He dies tragically. That’s it for him—but only as a full human.

What will Nagai do when he wakes up as an Ajin, or a half-human?

She is one day chosen to become a Magical Girl from this game called Magical Raising Project. Yay! Now Koyuko can live happily-ever-after. Wrong. Surely you didn’t believe me considering this anime’s ranking on this kind of list.

Every week, the game announces a Magical Girl that has the lowest amount of Magical Candy obtained and kills her off.

Be careful about what you wish for. Not everything is as it seems.

But Sudou soon realizes this isn’t like any game. The points received in this Darwin’s Game could be converted into beauty, wealth, intelligence, etc. How do you get these miraculous points? By murdering people.

 

Comment Or 🔫

yuno gasai

Give these shows a try, trust me. Although they can get a bit too frightening, at least you’re alive to feel that fear. Perhaps I’ve finally lost it, but I’m tired of the cliché storylines where the MC is trying to get stronger in a safe and controlled environment.

I want thrill. I want spice. I want to see characters embark on a journey that is filled with hardships. Why? Well, because once we hit the ending of the story, I tend to feel a lot more satisfied with the MC’s progress.
