Highly Recommended Anime Series of All Time

Updated on July 29, 2017

The Best Anime of All Time

In this Hub I list the very best anime of all time, organized into useful categories:

• shonen: where most anime/manga series listed are currently ongoing with more than 100 episodes

• shonen: completed series with more than 50 episodes (except Shingeki no Kyojin with 25 episodes + 5 OVA)

• shonen: original anime with less than 50 episodes

• light novel-based anime

• josei

• shoujo

• shojo/kodomo (usually targeted to children/younger audiences)

Shonen—Ongoing Manga, More Than 100 Episodes

In order of release date, these are the best long-running anime series based from shonen manga:

1. One Piece (1999)

2. Prince of Tennis (2001)

3. Naruto (2002)

4. Bleach (2004)

5. Katekyo Hitman Reborn (2006)

6. Naruto Shippuden (2007)

7. Haikyuu! (2014)

8. Boku no Hero Academia (2016)

These anime titles are long-running anime series mostly based on shonen manga. These stories usually revolve around the main characters' search for power and strength to fulfill their dreams and protect their families, friends, and loved ones. As the story lines progress, the characters exhibit physical and mental growth, bringing them closer to their dreams (for example Naruto who wants to be Hokage or Luffy who dreams of finding the One Piece and becoming the Pirate King).

The manga counterpart of each title listed above is still currently ongoing except for the original Prince of Tennis manga, which ended in 2008. Good news for Prince of Tennis fans: A new manga series began serialization in 2009, called New Prince of Tennis, as a continuation of the original manga.

Haikyuu is one of the most recent addition in this category which already has 3 seasons, the first two having 25 episodes each, while the third season only has 10 episodes.

I also just recently added Boku no Hero Academia, the shortest anime series in this list yet. Its second season is currently running but the first season only has 13 episodes. It may be the one with the least number of episodes right now but with a strong initial arc like that, I would like to believe that this anime has the potential to run long like the others here. I super like this and I think this is the first time or one of those rare times when the MC can be both strong and analytical, highly recommending to include this in your to watch list if it's not yet there.

Assassination Classroom
Assassination Classroom | Source

The best completed anime/manga series with more than 50 episodes (except for Shingeki no Kyojin - manga ongoing, with season 2 currently airing, and Assassination Classroom with only less than 50 episodes even with two seasons combined), in order of release date:

1. Fullmetal Alchemist/Hagane no Renkinjustushi (2003)

2. Code Geass (2006 - original anime)

3. Death Note (2007)

4 Soul Eater (2008)

5. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood (2009)

6. Nurarihyon no Mago: Sennen Makyou - Season 2 (2011)

7. Shingeki no Kyojin (2013)

8. Tokyo Ghoul (2014)

9. Assassination Classroom (2015); Assassination Classroom Second/Final Season (2016)

Each of titles listed above is based on shonen manga series, except for Code Geass, which was an original anime production. Tokyo Ghoul is also categorized under seinen. The above-mentioned anime span 50 episodes or more, except for Nurarihyon no Mago with only 26 episodes (52 episodes if season 1 is to be included), Shingeki no Kyojin which only 25 aired episodes during its first season (second season is currently airing) and Tokyo Ghoul with only 13 episodes in its first season (I'm still debating with myself internally if I would like to recommend the second season, Tokyo Ghoul: Root A). Unlike long-running anime series, there are rarely filler episodes. These series are usually canon works that strictly followed the original storyline and have fast-paced but concise plots and breathtaking twists. The limited number of episodes means that there are rarely dull episodes and for some titles, every single episode is heart-stopping.

Both the Fullmetal Alchemist series, Code Geass and Soul Eater featured lots of physical battle scenes. While the fight scenes in Fullmetal Alchemist are often based on alchemy and/or military force, Code Geass featured mecha-type battles. Meanwhile, both Code Geass and Death Note were mainly battles of wits between main and secondary characters. As for Shingei no Kyojin, it has one of the most powerful plots I've ever seen, filled with intense and violent action scenes enough to give us mini heart attacks in every single episode. Tokyo Ghoul started slow, fight scenes are scattered across the 13 episodes but are awesome (especially season one's last episode), albeit censored.

I was hesitant at first if I will group Sennen Makyou with the rest of the amazingly intense titles here since Nurarihyon no Mago's theme is a bit lighter. In terms of plot, however, Sennen Makyou was beautifully done and is in no way inferior compared to the others. (Nurarihyon no Mago season 1 was intentionally excluded from this list).

Most recent addition to this category is Assassination Classroom, which was completed within two seasons, the first one having 22 episodes, while the second, with 25 episodes. I personally thought that the series started slow, but the story will pick up after watching a few episodes, and then you will definitely come to love all the characters moving forward!

Action/Sports—Original Anime With Less Than 50 Episodes

Cowboy Bebop
Cowboy Bebop
Samurai Champloo
Samurai Champloo
Psycho-Pass
Psycho-Pass
Yuri On Ice
Yuri On Ice

These are the very best original anime series with less than 50 episodes, in order of release date:

1. Cowboy Bebop (1998)

2. Samurai Champloo (2004)

3. Psycho-Pass (2012)

4. Yuri!!! On Ice (2016)

I made a separate category for the anime titles listed above because these are all anime originals and are short anime series spanning 22 episodes or more. Also, there are a lot of stand-alone episodes (self-contained stories which does not need prior viewing of other episodes) in Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo. Unlike most of the anime listed earlier in this Hub, these series are already completed and were given a proper ending (even if it feels as if they ended too soon!). It is important to note that Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo are both Shinichiro Watanabe creations.

I recently added Yuri!!! On Ice on this list, the only sports anime in the category. I was actually hesitant at first because Yuri On Ice appears to be fundamentally different compared to the other titles listed here, but I didn't want to go through the trouble of adding a new original anime category with only one entry. Compared to other titles, Yuri On Ice's strength relies more on character growth, relationships, and emphasis on details.

Light Novel-Based Anime

Scrapped Princess

Full Metal Panic
Full Metal Panic
Sword Art Online
Sword Art Online
Kyoukai no Kanata/Beyond the Boundary
Kyoukai no Kanata/Beyond the Boundary
Mahouka Koukou no Rettosei
Mahouka Koukou no Rettosei
Amagi Brilliant Park
Amagi Brilliant Park

The very best light novel-based anime, in no particular order:

1. Scrapped Princess (2003)

2. Full Metal Panic! (2002)

3. Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (2005)

4. Sword Art Online (2012) - Season 1

5. Kyoukai no Kanata/Beyond the Boundary (2013)

6. Mahouka Koukou no Rettosei (2014)

7. Amagi Brilliant Park (2014)

The above-mentioned titles are neither manga-based nor original anime creations but are based on light novels which were further developed into other media forms, such as manga and anime. Moreover, the number of episodes of both series are just above 20 (except for The Second Raid, with 13 and Kyoukai no Kanata with 12). The original Scrapped Princess light novel ran from 1999 to 2005 but the anime adaptation was aired in 2003 with 24 episodes. You might have noticed that two of the above-listed titles are Shoji Gatoh creations, namely the Full Metal Panic series (TSR included) and Amagi Brilliant Park.

Another reason why I grouped these titles together is because the creators of the above-mentioned works were able to balance the action and romance within the story—something that rarely, rarely happens in the previous categories I mentioned.

I would also like to emphasize that I am only recommending Sword Art Online's first season. Season 2 was.. oh well.

Josei Anime

Nodame Cantabile
Nodame Cantabile
Kuragehime
Kuragehime | Source
Chihayafuru
Chihayafuru | Source

The best Josei I've seen are:

1. Nodame Cantabile (2007)

2. Nodame Catabile: Paris-Hen (2008)

3. Nodame Cantabile: Finale (2010)

4. Kuragehime (2011)

5. Chihayafuru (2011)

6. Chihayafuru Season 2 (2013)

Nodame Cantabile revolves around the lives of very adorable, musically inclined characters, Nodame and Chiaki, while Kuragehime, about the jellyfish-loving Tsukimi and the fashion-loving Kuranosuke. I didn't expect Chihayafuru to be equally interesting at first but it was really beautiful. It introduced me to a fascinating sport called Competitive Karuta which was so damn good I would play it if I can read Japanese. I personally think Chihayafuru's selling point would be its characters (the character development of each person was commendable), the friendship, the sport itself and god, the love triangle. Just when you thought that Chihaya and Arata are official, how Taichi was being positioned halfway through the story would make you question what you thought was canon and then Chihaya would crush every theory you ever had all over again.

The humor of these titles also appealed to my liking.

Shojo Anime

Ouran High School Host Club
Ouran High School Host Club
Lovely Complex
Lovely Complex
Skip Beat
Skip Beat
Kimi ni Todoke
Kimi ni Todoke

The best shojo anime, in order of release date:

1. Ouran High School Host Club (2006)

2. Lovely Complex (2007)

3. Skip Beat (2008)

4. Kimi ni Todoke (2009)

These titles were grouped together because their stories are based on school life, friendship, and of course, romance. Skip Beat, explores the showbiz life while Ouran High School Host Club allows us a glimpse into the not so typical host club life - the rich kids way. The number of episodes per season is only around 25 episodes (more or less). Lovely Complex and Kimi no Todoke are about the high school life experience.

Both Lovely Complex manga and anime adaptation have successfully ended. Everyone is still waiting for a second Ouran season because the manga has long since ended already. However, Skip Beat and Kimi ni Todoke manga chapters are coming out at such a slow and painful pace that I am not expecting a new season release anytime soon.

The first three (Ouran High School Host Club, Lovely Complex and Skip Beat are romantic-comedy series) while Kimi ni Todoke is a light drama anime series.

Light Shojo for Young Fans

Cardcaptor Sakura
Cardcaptor Sakura

For younger audiences, these are the best light shojo titles, in order of release date:

1. Cardcaptor Sakura (1998)

2. Daa! Daa! Daa! (2000)

I created this category for a number of reasons: One, both attract very young audiences; two, both have adorable and satisfying endings (just a tiny bit different from the original manga plot); and three, Li Syaoran and Kanata look very much alike (in fact, my kind of boys if I were their age). The stories are both cute, and I love them both equally, although there was more depth to Cardcaptor Sakura but Daa! Daa! Daa! is adorable in its own way and is ideal if you are looking for anything feel-good to watch.

What's your favorite on this llist?

I know this is hard but vote for that one anime that tops your own highly recommended list!!

      Speaking of throwbacks, have you read the mangas: W Juliet or 1/2 Prince; or watched Kyou kara Maoh or Gakuen Alice? I thought since we like the same animes, judging from this list, you'll most likely enjoy these ones too.

      ps: You don't have to consider them for the list, these are older animes. I just thought good things are meant to be shared so I'm recommending you some of my fave series. ^^

      omgthankyou id love to be friends with you! I've seen both Golden Time and Your Lie in April, i'd say i liked the latter better, bot not yet sure if it's worth adding here. But yes, Your Lie in April was really good! I haven't seen hxh 1999 in japanese dub yet so id like to rewatch it, i also think the 1999 art looks better than 2010 version, but really finding the time to watch both soon esp that a lot of comments here are bringing hxh up. Thank you for your comment @lunapage!

      lunapage 8 months ago

      This is the best and most objective anime rec list I've seen. I've watched almost 3/4 of this list and I agree with all your choices.

      I don't know if you've watched Golden Time and Your Lie in April yet but I'm curious what you think of them.

      Also, looking forward to what you'll think of HxH. It's one of the best shonen out there (I personally prefer the 1999 original but both versions are good enough to be listed along side those other titles imo)

      You should add shigetsu kimono uso ( your lie in April ) to the anime based on short story list that's a really good one

      OMG no Dragon Ball Z? It's the ultimate anime legend! Definitely the most popular anime series of all time along with One Piece and probably Naruto.

      Hi Ayubi

      Its been more than 2 years since you've updated this hub and i believe its time to include new animes. I'm waiting for the next anime on your list, especially the shonen 50 episodes. I have watched all of your recos there. I hope there will be a new reco after Tokyo ghoul. Just love your anime shonnen selections.

      fantastic list and couldnt agree more. As for akame ga kill. DO NOT WATCH THE LAST 4 ANIME EPISODES. you can of course but its gonna leave a bad taste in your mouth like it did for me. I dont read manga and I immediately went to the manga after watching the ending because it was that unsatisfactory. It follows cannon somewhat up until epsiode 14-18 then the studio went original in a very very bad way as in they rushed the ending.

      Sorry the rant but just warning because if you dont like bad endings then i highly suggest avoiding the last 4-6 episodes.

      I am definitely not critical of animes maybe because Ive watched a majority of the mainstream ones on here and not much else, but akame ga kill left a seriously horrible taste in my mouth; otherwise its a good anime just poorly finished.

      If you do watch the last few episodes please let me know if im on point. Thanks!
