It’s that time again for another top 5!!! Like always, the rules are the same. No sequels, only new releases, and if you feel different, leave a comment telling why… now let’s go!!!
Honorary Mention: Akame Ga Kill
Our Honorary Mention is Akame Ga Kill!!! I won’t go into the story that much but if you like action and gore, then this is the Anime for you. I was a fan of the Manga before the Anime dropped for this had to be on my list but the reason why it’s here and not higher is because I feel like they kill off characters way too soon. That’s just my opinion though. It’s a must watch/read for anybody who’s all about action so get on it!
Number 5: Zankyou No Terror
Now I know some will say “why so low on your list?” Well honestly because I haven’t finished it so I can properly judge this Anime. I know it’s well loved but this is my opinion and if I haven’t finished it, I can’t say it’s better than what I have finished but what I will say from what I watched so far, this shit is dope! If you like mysteries and anime that will make you think, Zankyou No Terror is the anime for you! Long story short, it’s about the world searching for some criminal mastermind to blame for this huge terrorist attack. Meanwhile 2 kids, Nine and Twelve form a team name Sphinx who are on a mission to change some shit lol. Like my quick summary? Anyways, it’s a must watch and I will be finishing this so don’t worry!
Number 4: Ao Haru Ride
If anybody knows me they know I love love LOVE romance anime and that’s why Ao Haru Ride is number 4 on our list! This show had me at the first episode. I never really read the manga so it was a surprise to me. The characters are just lovely and the story is just heart warming. While Kou be a low key asshole but loving guy you can’t but admire him and then you have Futaba who is finding herself again while reawakening the love she had for her first love. With good supporting characters and plot twist, you have a damn good romance anime. I would recommend this to anybody so if you love that love stuff, here you go!
Number 3: Aldnoah Zero
Now first let me start off by saying I hate Mecha Anime because they just aren’t as good as Code Geass or Gundam Wing etc. They just not the same anymore so I usually dodge them but this one right here. BOY THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE!!! Straight fire!!! Aldnoah Zero is our number 3!!! Inaho is life regardless of what he does and how he does it!!! I love characters like him because they get the job done period and at all cost. So Mars and Earth are at war and the Prince who’s name is really long goes to earth to try and bring peace. Well while there a assassination plot goes down which causes all hell to break loose! If I say more, this will turn into a spoiler so I’ll leave it at that. Get on this bad boy ASAP!!!
Number 2: Tokyo Ghoul
This top 2 was one of the hardest decisions I ever had to make but after countless thinking, Tokyo Ghoul number 2 on our list. If this was top 5 intros though, without a doubt it would be number 1… wait, I don’t know because our number 1 has a dope intro too lol. Anyways, let’s get into this crack in the form of Anime. Tokyo Ghoul is just a master piece. Action, it has that. Plot, it has that. Good original characters, it has that. This anime has it all!!! You really feel for the main character and this is like on of the first main characters that you’re not mad he’s weak at first because it’s understandable. It’s just a damn good anime to the point I’m not going to tell you what’s it about. I’m just going to tell you to go and watch it!!!
Number 1: Barakamon
Every once and awhile a Anime so new and refreshing comes out that just captivates you. This is that. Barakamon is our number 1 summer 2014 Anime. The fact that this is a show of a genre that’s completely new with a story that different can still make me pick this over Tokyo Ghoul should tell you something. This didn’t need action. This didn’t need romance. This didn’t need robots. All it had was beautiful characters, a heart warming story, and a power message. This is a Anime you can truly learn from and when something like that comes along, how can you not at least have it in your top 3? You will fall in love with every character from Naru and Handa all the way down to the old lady who owns the store. Just an amazing Anime. Instant classic!
