The storyline of this anime features Yuji Itadori as the main protagonist who is a freshman at Sugisawa Municipal high school and a member of the modest occult research club.

Yuji then reveals that he and his friends at the occult club have possession of the cursed object and have planned to take the seal off it that very night.

Megumi explains that the seal is the only thing keeping all the curses away from school and later both Yuji and Megumi then rush to the Sugisawa high school only to find out that they are late and Yuji’s friends have already taken the seal off the object.

It would be a disgrace to the whole Anime community if we do not cover Dragon Ball Z. This staggering Anime features one of the most powerful characters ever created and yes you guessed it right it is Goku. This anime is our favorite in this list because of its storyline, plot, and characters, and especially the action elements present in this anime are just top-notch. Sometimes it is hard to believe that this Anime was released back in 1989 because it is too good.

The storyline starts off with Goku and his young son Gohan living a happy and peaceful life and later they are on their way to meet Goku’s old friends. Upon arrival, Goku meets his friends who are shocked to see his son Gohan. Goku’s happiness is short-lived as his brother named Raditz arrives on Earth to eliminate every single human being. Raditz then reveals that Goku is a Saiyan who was born on the planet Vegeta and was sent to Earth to eliminate the human race. Then we see a battle between Goku and Raditz where Raditz absolutely crushes Goku as he has been trained under the best conditions.

Raditz then takes Gohan (Goku’s son) with him and Goku couldn’t do a single thing as he was already defeated. Later Goku wakes up and teams up with his old rival Picollo who is a Namekian. Both Goku and Picollo then fly to Raditz in order to defeat him once and for all and secure Goku’s son as well.

Release DateSeptember 28, 2013
Written ByHajime Isayama
IMDB Rating9.1/10
Total Episodes89

If you are into action, romance, and emotional anime then Attack On Titan is what you need to cure your boredom as this anime has it all. Attack on Titan also known as AOT is set in a world where humanity is forced behind enormous walls because of the humongous, man-eating giants known as the Titans. These Titans would eat every single human in their sight and that is why humanity has been forced to live behind largely great walls.

These Titans can’t Talk, have magical healing powers, are burning hot, and can only be killed by a strong strike at the nape of the neck. There are three walls that protect humanity from the Titans and those are Wall Sina(the innermost wall), Wall Rose(the middle wall), and Wall Maria (the outermost wall). The storyline of this anime takes place in a district inside the outermost wall named Shiganshina where 2 abnormal titans break the Outermost wall (Wall Maria). One was with a fully armored body and the other one was super tall. Both of them weren’t like any of the Titans seen before and they breach the gates of the Wall and start eating every human they see.

There is massive chaos in the Shiganshina district and we are introduced to our main protagonist named Eren Jaeger and his two friends Mikasa and Armin who are teenagers. Everybody in the SHiganshina was retreating back into the Wall Rose (middle wall). However, sadly Eren’s mother was caught by one of the Titans and was eating right in front of Eren’s eyes. The first episode of this anime is going to be really emotional but it will definitely hype you up to watch the other episodes as later Eren swore to kill every last Titan to ever exist.

This anime has loads and loads of action sequences and you might be surprised to see how this anime turns out as you progress watching it further. AOT really explains to its viewers what love, power, and friendship should be like and we are sure that you guys won’t regret watching this anime for sure.

91 Days
Release DateJuly 9, 2016
Written ByTaku Kishimoto
IMDB Rating7.8/10
Total Episodes13

This Anime is all about Revenge. Ah! Revenge is a fascinating concept and we believe that it has been around since probably human civilization. Watching someone deserve punishment for what they did wrong in the past might be one of the greatest guilty pleasures of all time. However, sometimes Revenge can be really powerful and even mold a human being into something really dangerous.

The storyline of this anime focuses on Angelo Lagusa who is an orphan that has lost both his parents and younger brother at the hands of the Mafia (Vanetti Family). Angelo seems like he has lost everything in his life and has no desire to live anymore. Even his landlady reported that Angelo is really creepy and she couldn’t even tell if he is dead or alive. One day Angelo receives a letter that tells him the names of the people who were responsible for the death of his family, the hunger for revenge rises inside him and we all could see the birth of a monster.

Well even tho we all know that “Revenge is a Fools game” (Arthur Morgan RDR2) still watching this anime can really be a guilty please for some viewers out there as you wouldn’t yet realize what this anime has in store for you once you watch it. As we have mentioned above, this anime is all about revenge so it must be obvious that it would be packed with action sequences all along. We highly recommend you guys to watch this anime. Alright, this was it for 91 Days and now we will move on to the next best action anime on our list.

Some viewers can get uncomfortable while watching this anime as there’s a lot of gore and violence in this anime but if you are into all that then let us spill some beans about Tokyo Ghoul. This action anime features Ken Kaneki as the main protagonist who lives in an alternate reality of Tokyo where ghouls live among humans. Ghouls are exactly like humans except they have enhanced senses and predatory organs called Kagune that can be used as weapons. One weird thing about the Ghouls is that they eat nothing but human flesh.

Kaneki goes out on a date with Rize but the date was a nightmare for Kaneki as Rize turned out to be a Ghoul. However, before Rize could eat him she gets squashed by metal beams and dies. RIP. Later Kaneki wakes up in a hospital and the doctor explains to him that he transplanted Rize’s organs into him in order to save his life. Kaneki then realizes that he is now going to end up as a Ghoul like Rize which he never wanted to be.

This action anime has great action and loads of drama and adventure. We highly recommend you give this anime a try out for yourself.

IMDB Rating8.4/10

We don’t think that this action anime needs any introduction but still, there are some new people in the anime world as well. The 8th spot on our list goes to Naruto, it is an anime that is filled with emotional charge, and the storyline of this anime starts off with a quick scene summarizing Naruto’s past. Naruto was quite a troublemaker child as he drew graffiti on the Hokage rock and he was later scolded by his teacher named Iruka Umino. Later a shinobi named Mizuki tries to take advantage of Naruto while he’s emotionally weak.

Mizuki tells Naruto that he needs to steal the Shadow Clone jutsu from the Hokage residence in order to learn how to use it later Mizuki learns that Naruto manages to master the Jutsu straight from its source and this turns out to be a mistake for Mizuki and as he goes to take the Jutsu he and Iruka are thrown into a fight where Mizuki proves to be superior but Iruka sacrifices himself for Naruto. This event causes Naruto to use the Jutsu to absolutely destroy Mizuki.

You guys should definitely check out what happens to Naruto later in the action anime so don’t forget to watch it. Naruto is packed with fun action sequences from the beginning and if you haven’t watched it then you are missing out on something really worth your time.
