If you happen to have Netflix and the quarantine’s got you bored, maybe take a look at their anime collection. Here’s a list of some of the best ones that they have in store.
Fullmetal Alchemist And Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
No conversation about any anime collection can truly start without Fullmetal Alchemist. The story of the Elric brothers’ quests to reclaim their lost bodies is one of the most iconic in all of anime. So much so that we have two versions of the story.
The original Fullmetal Alchemist followed the story of the manga to a point. Afterwards, it had to create its own story since there was no new manga to adapt. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, on the other hand, is an adaptation of the complete manga series. So you have two incredible stories that follow the same characters. How lucky.
A Silent Voice (Netflix)
For someone who doesn’t watch a lot of anime, it may all seem too intense. They may think its all shouting, non-sensical action and loudness. A Silent Voice goes against that stereotype entirely. This introspective story about a boy and the mute girl he used to bully is absolutely beautiful. It’s a perfect example of the medium’s storytelling capabilities.
This is the one that truly started it all for anime dubs in the West. Kenichiro Watanabe’s Sci-Fi Western is incredible in its own right. However, the quality of the English dub rarely matched that of its original Japanese counterpart before this one. Even if you don’t watch anime, you should watch Cowboy Bebop.
This one’s fairly new, but it earns its place on this list. It’s impossible to avoid comparisons between this show and Zootopia. However, Beastars does go in a darker, more mature direction with the concept of anthropomorphic animals. It’s perfect for a quick binge.
My Hero Academia
My Hero Academia is easily one of the modern anime classics. It’s the perfect blend of the high school drama that anime does so well, along with the traditional superhero stories. Oh, and the action is just superb. Out of anything on this list, this one’s most likely to be a hit among everyone.
