Storyline:

Violet Evergarden is the main character in the Violet Evergarden series. In the war, Violet was treated like a weapon by the army like she was not human to them, where she served in the military for years. 

After the war, Violet started working as an auto memory doll at the CH postal company. She was so passionate about her work. At work, her only motive was finding the meaning of the words “I LOVE YOU,” which major Gilbert Bougainvillea said to her during the war’s final battle.

Her training had prepared her to be an extraordinary weapon rather than an average human, making her emotionless and incapable of understanding others’ feelings.

Although she has feelings, she doesn’t know they exist since she believes people don’t have feelings. As a result, she could be construed as emotionless or apathetic. Violet could not speak or understand speech when Dietfried found her, except the command to kill.

Dietfried was the first person who taught her how to speak and understand others. She had no perception of right and wrong. Her only purpose was to chase after adults who gave her orders. “Kill or be killed” had become her mantra, and she was thus able to kill without feeling guilty or regret  until she met Gilbert.

There is no such thing as a quiet life for a psychic. While Kusuo does his best to stay out of the spotlight by concealing his abilities from his classmates, he inadvertently attracts the attention of many bizarre characters, including the empty-headed Riki Nendou and the psychopathic Shun Kaidou.

Kusuo learned that the ordinary life he had been striving for was much more complex than he though

Genre: Action, Comedy, Shounen
Episodes: 24 (2 Seasons)

Storyline:

The plot of One Punch Man revolves around a hero who can defeat all his attackers with a single punch, which annoys him to no end. What makes that so interesting, you might ask? Doesn’t the hero deserve to see his enemy struggle against him? This time, not so much. 

In this scene, you are going to see a super-overpowered hero seeking out a stronger foe, desperately searching to feel the thrill and adrenaline of those fights he remembers feeling years ago when he was weak. Did he not succeed in becoming strong after all?

As the plot of this anime is unpredictable, it is a good thing. The fight scenes and the animation are great! My favorite fight scenes among all of my anime viewings are in this series. Feel free to watch it! Your time will be well spent.

An 18-year-old boy named Eren Jaeger must use his extraordinary power to join the military to defeat the titan race. During this time, humanity barely survives when these man-eating monsters terrorize every person, threatening to destroy the last vestiges of human civilization.

Storyline:

Unlike other schools, Mihama Academy is like a prison. Each student has their reasons for living there. A male student arrived at the center and threw the orderly rhythm of Mihama off balance.

In the beginning, we see what we have come to expect from anime, beautiful, appealing characters with hidden secrets and an emotionless main character. While a lot of the plot is light and fun, the stories of all the characters are much darker and more profound.

Genre: Mystery, Slice Of Life, School

Storyline:

Typically, Houtarou is not very enthusiastic about classic literature, but when his sister forces him to join the club at Kamiyama High School, his whole life changes. When he arrives, he finds out about the uncle of one of the members. This unassertive boy delves into the mystery with Eru Chitanda, a curious young girl who is always enthralled by mysteries.

This anime appeals to me for obvious reasons. Kyoto Animation’s work has the characteristics written about in the first paragraph. In my opinion, the best part of this anime is how the story was implemented.

There are many challenges in creating a drama about tracking down mysteries – especially if you’re working in the slice of life genre. Through its well-written characters, Hyouka manages to stay exciting and entertaining. In some ways, the situation is remarkable as well as down to earth. The anime series Hyouka shows how to make a slice-of-life anime series that keeps the audience’s attention from beginning to end.

Genre: Mecha, Drama, Sci-Fi

Storyline:

A woman named Cordelia travels to Earth 300 years after the war between Earth and Mars known as the “Calamity War.” She tries to convince the Earth government to allow Chryse, a Martian city under Earth’s control, to declare its independence.

A security company employee, Mikazuki Augus, and a private security company, Orga Itsuka, accompany her C.G.S.GS and Cordelia are attacked by Gjallarhorn, which allows Orga to seize control of the company. The conflict between Mikazuki and Orga erupts. Gundam Barbatos, the older mobile suit from the Calamity War, provides Mikazuki with the means to fight off Gjallarhorn.

This series just seemed to be more of a struggle for the main characters than other series. It is generally assumed that they come from orphaned backgrounds. They are gathered together and then counted. Struggle and risk are sure to be more significant.

This experience magnified the significance of their accomplishments.

Genre: Comedy, History, Shounen
Episodes: 201

Storyline:

Japan began severing all ties with foreign nations in the early 17th century because of its strict isolation policies. With Admiral Perry leading the way, the U.S fleet openly challenged the Shogunate in 1853, resulting in the modernization of Japan’s sociopolitical system and the ultimate fall of its legacy. With the imperial restoration in 1868, the samurai regime came to an end. History tells us this, but in Gintama, things are different. Rather than the U.S.fleet, we are met by spaceships from all over the galaxy.

Eventually, we discover that extraterrestrials occupy America. Alien occupation armies have turned the Shogunate into their puppet. In Japan, the samurai have been disarmed, and they are now reduced to temporary workers with little skill.

As the story goes, Gintama is about a samurai named Gintoki who needs a job to survive despite not having respect for rules. Although he and his gang haven’t forgotten the morale of a swordsman, they are among the few who haven’t lost their courage. It doesn’t matter where they go; they always cause trouble.
