Here we are going to refer to the second version of the anime, considered the most complete, since it adapts all the plot arcs seen in the manga.

However, in all the series, Tenchi Masaki and the space girls (Ryoko, Ayeka, Sasami, Mihoshi, Washu and Kiyone) are present to face the various enemies that appear, be they warriors from another galaxy or demon spirits!

Capable of defeating his enemies with just a single blow, this bald, rubber-gloved (and sexy, right?) yellow-uniformed hero has captivated audiences with a humor and attitude that sometimes borders on the ridiculous.

One-Punch Man is a fest of clichés of traditional shounen narratives, but it has already conquered the hearts of a legion of otakus . To understand the reason, you will have to watch the series and let yourself be “infected” by this fever!

Episodes: 13

This is what makes Charlotte different and what makes this anime a very interesting option for those looking for a story that stands out from the usual: the limitations of the characters’ powers.

For example, there is a girl capable of becoming invisible, but only to one person at a time, and another who manages to be possessed by spirits, but only by her sister’s… And so this team of people with “super “powers.

13. Death Parade

death-parade-anime

Episodes: 12

There, people must participate in a series of games that serve to try to decide their respective destinies: reincarnate on Earth or condemned to wander eternally in the void.

Ignoring the teen drama present in anime, Bakuman is a true lesson in how manga creation works. The stages of production, the relationship between the author and the editor, the difficulties of having the manga approved and how to keep it weekly among the best sellers… all of that is portrayed in this anime.

Bakuman also satires (and pays tribute to) various contemporary anime and manga, such as One Piece and Naruto.

Episodes: 25

This is one of the most popular seinen series in the world. Recently, its creator, Kentaro Miura, passed away, and it is unknown if the manga’s story will ever come to an end.

Berserk revolves around a former mercenary and cursed swordsman named Guts who lives on a mission to hunt down the demonic Apostles. The series has many scenes of graphic violence and other elements that are not suitable for a child audience.

The fights in Berserk are epic, but that’s not what makes the series so wonderful, it’s the density of the plot and the quality of growth of each of its characters.

The series has different adaptations, but if we can give you some advice, it is preferable to skip the most recent ones, especially the one made in 2016-2017, since its quality leaves much to be desired. To see a good adaptation of Berserk , we invite you to take a look at the first one, which was made in 1997, but if you want to enjoy the story and the drawing in all its splendor, it is preferable that you read the manga.
