1. 'Ao no Exorcist' ('Blue Exorcist')
Unholy flames seem to be out of control for both Enen no Shouboutai and Ao no Exorcist. That being said, I can’t help but feel similar vibes from both!
Just like Enen no Shouboutai, Ao no Exorcist puts mystifying flames at the backbone of the narrative. Only this time, there’s a wider uncharted territory with regards to its flames. For some reason, this anime also has hints of religious parallelism. Unholy flames demand divine intervention, I guess.
Now let’s talk about the setting and the protagonist. Tragedy is prevalent in the early life of the main character. He’s still going through a lot, but there’s definitely hope. He may have been unfairly regarded as a devil in the past, but he knows what’s right and is going to get to the bottom of it all.
Ao no Exorcist is actually a decent shounen anime with a fair amount of intrigue, some exhilarating action, and depth. Honestly, I don’t like how this anime handles some of its plot and character elements, but it’s quite satisfying nonetheless. As I’ve said, it’s decent enough, so try giving it a shot!
2. 'Boku no Hero Academia' ('My Hero Academia')
Firemen are bona fide heroes in both the fictional world and the non-fictional world. Enen no Shouboutai makes a good point of that! Well, most shounen anime have some kind of “hero” element in them in one way or another. So speaking of heroes, let’s jump the conversation to one of the best superhero anime in existence—Boku no Hero Academia!
Boku no Hero Academia has all of its “hero” elements down pat. In every heroic scene carved into this anime, I can’t help but feel pride and honor. This show oozes with genuine heroism. It hits with all kinds of emotion. It makes you feel it's worth it deep in your heart. This show is what every superhero anime should strive to be!
If you still haven’t watched the show, it’s never too late to start. Just like how this anime stood up and show everyone that it’s one of the best, you have to do the same and show the world that you’re better. It’s okay now. Because Boku no Hero Academia is here!
3. 'Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood'
If we have top-notch state firefighters in Enen no Shouboutai, then we have premier state alchemists in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood!
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is an anime that does an impeccable job at both storytelling and characterization. No wonder it stands proud in the hall of fame as one of the best anime of all time. Not only is this anime bursting with action and exhilaration, it doesn’t have any loose end or remiss component. It successfully draws people in, capturing the heart, mind, and soul, and delivering an unforgettable experience like no other.
Are you curious now? You should be! As an old proverb goes: “Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back!” After you watch this extraordinary anime entirely, the only feelings you’ll feel are serendipity and contentment.
4. 'Shingeki no Kyojin' ('Attack on Titan')
The similarities between Enen no Shouboutai and Shingeki no Kyojin may not be apparent at first glance, but with closer inspection, you’ll see that both actually mirror one another in such an uncanny way.
Shingeki no Kyojin is clearly much more horrific and serious than Enen no Shouboutai. It also doesn’t play out like the usual shounen anime show. Moreover, there are far more phrenic dialogue and philosophical discourse in it, both of which are vital in furthering its suspenseful plot.
When you’ve got a show wherein a task force is in charge of protecting humanity against hellish monsters of mysterious origin, an intense degree of action is to be expected. And you probably know this already, but Shingeki no Kyojin is known for its cutting-edge action, riveting plot execution, and stimulating theatrics.
By this time, there’s a big chance that you’ve already watched this anime. If not, then go watch it now and be overwhelmed by its gargantuan presence!
5. 'Soul Eater'
You might be wondering why Enen no Shouboutai seems very analogous to Soul Eater. Well, that’s because both anime have the same creator. Mystery solved!
Soul Eater is one of the most peculiar anime shows of its own generation. Back then, nothing was really quite like it. Its art and its theme are rather strange and unearthly—in a good way, of course! Personally, I think that this show is actually unconventionally stylish!
Heads up, I’m telling you now that this anime ends in a disappointing manner. That's because its source material was still incomplete when its anime version caught up it. It’s a shame, really, but this show is still very much gratifying to behold. Do watch it! After all, it's unlikely that Soul Eater will ever fail in delivering a one-of-a-kind experience. If you happen to reach the end, just continue on with the manga so that you can fill in the void yourself.
