Anime is one of the most popular cultural phenomena of the 21st century, and it’s all thanks to the Japanese. The country has long been known for its animation industry, and the rest of the world has only followed suit.
Today, anime is so popular that it’s even influencing people’s daily lives. From fashion to music, everything is influenced by anime in some way or another. And when it comes to making money, the anime industry is a billion dollar business.
And if you’re wondering how this all came about, you need to look no further than Arifureta. This anime is a classic example of how the industry works, and what it takes to get into it.
Furthermore, it’s also a story of how people are willing to put their lives on the line in order to make it big.It’s not easy to make it in the anime industry, but it’s a lot more complicated than you might think. And this is where Arifureta comes in.
12. Log Horizon
Isekai anime have been a huge hit in Japan for the past few years. Log Horizon is one of the many isekai anime out there, but what makes it so special is how amazing the lore and world-building of the show really is. It helps that the protagonist of both shows are fairly similar, although Log Horizon’s Shiroe is definitely more powerful than Hajime at the start.
Anyone who likes isekai anime should definitely check out Log Horizon. The world is fun, the characters are great, and the story is a blast to uncover.And then there’s the artwork.
Let’s talk about the art of Log Horizon.
So, as mentioned before, the art of Log Horizon is absolutely beautiful. The anime is animated by Production I.G, and the characters and environments are created by Tetsuya Nomura. This anime is just oozing with gorgeous art. I can’t even tell you how much I love the art of this show.
11. Sword Art Online
It would be impossible to talk about anime like Arifureta without talking about the isekai anime that started the craze behind this series. Sword Art Online is a very popular anime, although it does have its fair share of haters.
That being said, there’s no denying the fact that Sword Art Online has one of the most active and passionate fanbases around. It’s a worthwhile watch for anyone who wants to get into isekai anime.
As I have noted before, there’s a reason why Sword Art Online has been one of the most successful isekai anime series, and that reason is the strong story.
The story of Sword Art Online is based on the light novels written by Reki Kawahara. The story is about a group of teenagers who find themselves trapped in a virtual world known as the “Realm of Sinners” and have to fight for their survival.
Both Naruto and Arifureta feature protagonists who are reviled by the masses and have to fight on their own two feet against all the odds to survive. Of course, the legendary status of Naruto means that more people would be familiar with this show already.
The fact that Boruto is still carrying forward the legacy of Naruto is a testament to just how popular the series really is. Any person looking out for good fantasy anime should definitely check Naruto out if they haven’t already.
Again, it’s pretty hard to find an anime that has a more iconic protagonist than Naruto.
9. One Piece
One Piece is one of the most popular anime around that is still going strong to this day. It’s beating Demon Slayer in sales is considered to be a massive achievement — something that only the likes of Demon Slayer have been able to achieve.
The story of Luffy and the Straw Pirates as they explore the brilliant world of One Piece never ceases to be entertaining. Fans can’t wait to see what later arcs of the manga have in store, given that Oda’s writing just keeps on improving over time.
Moreover, One Piece has its fair share of characters that are some of the most memorable and entertaining in the entire anime industry.Now, in honor of the One Piece anime’s 20th anniversary, we have compiled a list of the top 20 most memorable characters in the One Piece anime and manga series.
8. Fairy Tail
Fairy Tail is another legendary shonen anime that is worth a watch for any anime fan. It leans strongly on the theme of friendship and has some truly iconic moments that are a blast to witness.
The first season of the hit anime series was a huge success, so we’re excited to see what happens when the series returns in the second season. The anime is about a group of high school students who summon and control monsters called “summoning spells” to battle against a new threat: the Demon King.
Compared to the first season, the second season of the anime will take a darker tone, and some characters will undergo some major changes.
In honor of the second season, we’re taking a look at some of the coolest summoning spells in the anime. The series will feature many different spells, but we’ve narrowed it down to the top 10 spells for the second season of the anime.
We’ve broken down each spell by the summoner that controls it, the type of spell, and the purpose it serves.
7. Rise of the Shield Hero
Like Arifureta, the anime adaptation of Shield Hero is based on a light novel that has 22 volumes as of June 2019. The story is about a hero who is granted a fairly useless power, and it’s a cute and likable series. It’s no wonder the anime adaptation is so popular!
I’ve been a fan of the Mario franchise since I was a kid, so when I heard that a new Mario game was coming out for the Nintendo Switch, I was super excited. This game is a 2D platformer with a twist. You play as a small robot named Robby who has to navigate the world of Mega Land, a huge, magical world that you can manipulate by using your power to turn it into different shapes
6. Kenja no Mago
The spring 2019 season’s biggest isekai anime is Kenja no Mago. It’s full of typical isekai and harem tropes, but it somehow manages to deliver them with enough twists and nuance to keep them fresh. The main character has been reincarnated as the grandson of a talented and famous mage, but unfortunately, he didn’t seem to inherit any common sense!
If you’re looking for a lighthearted, easygoing isekai, then you should definitely check this out.Kenja no Mago is an anime about reincarnation, so you know it’s got to be a good one!
When I first heard that this anime was a reincarnation of the author’s own manga, I wasn’t very excited. After all, I had heard that there were a lot of anime that take the original manga as their source material, but I’m not usually a big fan of these kind of anime. I just didn’t think I’d like it very much.
5. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime
TenSura is a similar premise to Arifureta because of how its main character gets reincarnated with relatively weak powers. TenSura has some stellar worldbuilding and isn’t as heavy on the harem antics as other series on this list, though. It’s definitely a series to check out even if you don’t normally like isekai anime. Though the main character becomes a little overpowered in the end, the setting and characters are original enough to make this worth a watch.
Equally important, the anime has a good amount of lighthearted moments that make it a lot of fun to watch.If you’re looking for a fun, lighthearted isekai anime, then you should definitely check out That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime. The main character has been reincarnated with relatively weak powers, so he has to work his way up the ranks to become a hero.
The anime has some stellar worldbuilding and isn’t as heavy on the harem antics as other series on this list. It’s definitely a series to check out even if you don’t normally like isekai anime.
The mention of Bleach rounds up the mention of the Big Three on this list. It might be the weakest of the lot, but Bleach still has its moments — including an amazing Soul Society arc that most people consider being one of the greatest shonen arcs of all time.
It’s a shame that Bleach’s quality dips severely after this amazing arc, but the series still has its great moments. With The Thousand-Year Blood War arc finally getting an anime adaptation, there’s no better time to get into this series than right now.
Surprisingly, Bleach’s art is still fairly good even after all these years.
The legend of Berserk is one of the most amazing and breathtaking manga ever created. The late great Kentaro Miura has allowed a generation of manga fans to witness some of the most detailed and awe-inspiring illustrations ever seen in a manga panel.
While Berserk might end on a cliffhanger due to the creator’s untimely demise, that is definitely not a reason to not check out the manga. If anything, the journey is just as fascinating, and it’s a shame that Berserk hasn’t received a quality anime adaptation aside from the 1997 anime.
2. My Hero Academia
My Hero Academia is another series that focuses on the fantastical exploits of high school students. Of course, unlike Arifureta, the series features all these powers in the real world itself.
Viewers can only wait for later seasons to elaborate on the story, given how the anime has stopped at such a tantalizing point.
Therefore, the best we can do is to try to figure out the true story behind the series and see how the heroes were created.
1. Tokyo Ghoul
While Tokyo Ghoul might be a darker anime than Arifureta, the shows do touch on similar themes… especially when it comes to the main protagonist. Both Kaneki and Shiroe start out really weak before undergoing a change of hair color and becoming one of the most powerful ghouls by the end of the show.
It’s a shame that Tokyo Ghoul starts off really strong before veering off track and becoming a rather mediocre experience. However, the show still has its moments and is still worth a watch.Lastly, it’s also a really good place to start if you’re new to the genre.
In terms of the anime, the story and the characters are very good, and I would recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a fun, easy to watch series.
I really enjoyed this anime. I’m not sure if it’s because of the manga or if it’s because I read the manga. The anime is pretty faithful to the manga, and it’s a very good adaptation. It’s a bit different from other anime, because it’s set in Tokyo.
