My Favourite Animes!


So, I've told you about my favourite mangas and now it's time for me to share my favourite animes. Other than D-Gray Man and Vampire Knight, which were both mentioned in my manga post, my favourite animes are as follows:


Attack on Titan: This anime is tied for first with D-Gray Man. It has an amazing premise and is so creepy. Definitely one of the most brutal animes that I've watched. Lots of blood and gore, but it never seems unnecessary to the story or the premise, which centres around the remaining group of humankind, who are separated from man-eating giants by three weakening walls. It's just brutal. Kind of like the Game of Thrones of anime. This series is currently incomplete, but absolutely amazing none the less. I give this anime five out of five stars. 


Darker Than Black: You can find this short, completed anime on Netflix. It isn't as dark as Attack on Titan, but still very intense. Really cool story line centred around magical individuals known as contractors. I really appreciate that this is one of the few animes that I've watched that actually has an ending. Most animes I start are still in production or left incomplete. I give this anime four and a half out of five stars.


InuYasha: InuYasha is a childhood favourite of mine. I absolutely love the humour, the romance, and the demon-hunting premise. Such a great anime. I love it for totally different reasons than Attack on Titan or Darker than Black, but I love it just the same. It 's just so satisfying to watch. Though it has more humour than some of my other favourites, it can still be very intense and action-packed. I give InuYasha five out five stars, but I know that part of that is sentimental attachment. 


Kaze No Stigma: Also on Netflix, Kaze No Stigma has only one season out currently. The plot is centred around individuals who can manipulate the elements. Not only is this anime infused with great humour, but also with lots of action and drama. Very funny and entertaining. I give it four and a half out of five stars.


I also really love Full Metal Alchemist (four and half out of five stars), and Dragon Ball Z, which was another childhood favourite (four out of five stars).


Do you all like watching anime? If so, what are your favourites?
