A Beginner's Guide to Anime Part 2

So you're interested in watching anime? Or at least curious enough about it to read this article. Congratulations! Anime is one of the largest growing genres on television. Right now is the perfect time to start watching. Like I said in my previous article , this hybrid of art and storytelling is soooo worth checking out! Below are six popular anime I believe any beginner will love. Each of these series is a great place for any novice or newbie to start! If science fiction is your thing try Steins;Gate This science fiction anime is the best time travel story you'll ever see. I'm including Back To The Future in that statement so you know that I'm serious! Watching scientist Rintaro Okabe toy with time travel and pay the price is a truly resonant experience. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll love every second of it. Steins; Gate is impossible not to love after you've seen the end of the second episode. If horror is your thing, try Tokyo Ghoul Cannibalism, ghouls, fight scenes, and a heavy dose of blood make this anime one of the goriest. But it is also very, very good, not to mention popular. In a world with Ghouls, human lookalikes that feast on flesh, no human is safe. If you can handle something dark with more than a little bite ;) try this one out! If action, adventure, and long running series are your thing, try Bleach Ichigo Kurosaki is a soul reaper. His job is to help spirits pass on to the Soul Society and to vanquish any threats with his huge zanpakuto (sword). This anime has it all. Awesome sword fighting scenes, tons of jokes, a great soundtrack, an intriguing plot, tons of dynamic characters and best of all over 350 episodes!!! If you like fantasy, magic and silliness try Fairy Tail If you like kitties, magic, silly humor, or uplifting shows about friendship you have to check out the adorably cute Fairy Tail . It tells the story of Lucy Heartfilia, a wizard just coming into her own, as she joins the best magical guild in all of Fiore. Together with her Fairy Tail guild mates, they use their magic and go on tons of crazy adventures. A favorite in the anime community due to the large number of episodes, merchandise, and fans! If you like shows that are intelligent, thought provoking, slick, and addictive try Durarara!! This classic anime gained popularity while it was shown on Adult Swim's Toonami block. Telling the story of three high school friends living in a city filled with secrets, Durarara!! is my very favorite anime. Filled with all sorts of classic anime tropes, each character is a revelation. Whether it's universally loathed/loved Izaya Orihara, the magnanimous Shizuo Heiwajima, or headless rider/dullahan Celty Sturluson, Durarara always has an exciting story to tell. If you like your shows kid friendly, cute, and filled with stunning visuals try Little Witch Academia Netflix's Little Witch Academia is delightful to watch. Young Witch Akko has just been accepted to the magic school of her dreams. Unfortunately, she's the least talented in her class. But with determination and heart, she is determined to become an inspiration just like her idol Shiny Chariot. The second season of this amazing show was just recently released. I wholeheartedly recommend every anime on this list and hope you find the right one that gets you hooked! Let me know how you liked them in the comments below. p { text-align: justify; }

Durarara Season 1, Episode 1 Preview - "The First Thing Said"

The highly-anticipated Durarara , from the same writer who brought the chaotic Baccano! starts airing soon! The Japanese site for Durarara has posted a summary of the first episode, which is set to air late on January 7th (or early on January 8th, depending on how you reckon these things). The episode features Ryuugamine Mikado, a boy who longs for the excitement of the big city. Lured by his old friend Kida Masaomi, he transfers to a school in Ikebukuro, one of the most popular districts of Tokyo. As he adjusts to his new surroundings, he finds out about the gang members and other Ikebukuro residents who just shouldn't be messed with, and becomes mixed up with a local gang. And, before he can get too comfortable, he starts hearing whispers about the local boogeyman - a headless motorcycle rider... Durarara starts on January 7th - it's going to be a long wait for what promises to be an excellent show!
