The past few months have been very rough for everyone, and people are looking for different entertainment outlets. Everyone has a different taste, but if you are someone who loves fighting anime, then you are in the right place. We have compiled a comprehensive list of anime to watch, which includes fantasy-based fighting and real fighting. Keeping the varied tastes of fans in mind, the listed anime will have something for everyone.
My Hero Academia
In the world of My Hero Academia, supernaturalism is not an anomaly anymore. Eighty percent of the population has some extraordinary power called Quirk. There are people who use their Quirks for evil deeds called villains, while the heroes protect everyone. But becoming a hero is not everyone’s cup of tea. One has to pass a rigorous entrance exam and then get training and education. Surprisingly, the protagonist of the show who has always aspired to be a Hero is Quirkless. Even though everyone tells Izuku Midoriya that he can never be a hero without a Quirk, he is unable to let go of his childhood dreams. His life takes an unprecedented turn when the No. 1 hero All Might gives him his Quirk and selects him as his successor.
In just four years, my Hero Academia has managed to become a cult classic with a huge fan following. A real action anime fan must watch this show, which can potentially become the best someday.
One-Punch Man is one of the few action anime that has successfully remained humorous. Saitama, a young man who aspires to become a hero, trains relentlessly for three years only to realize that he can beat the strongest villains with just one punch. He may have worked very hard to become a hero, but the lack of competitiveness bores him.
This humorous show is capable of great entertainment. Although season 2 may not be up to expectations, that should not stop you from watching season 1, which is the reason for its massive popularity.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
The show follows two brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, who unable to imagine their lives without their mother try to resurrect her through forbidden alchemy. But they fail, and the alchemic reaction rips their bodies apart as Edward loses his hand while Alphonse’s spirit gets trapped in a suit of armor. Accepting their sins, the Elric brothers embark on a journey to get back Alphonse’s body using the fabled Philosopher’s stone. But when they get their hands on the Philosopher’s stone, they are appalled to know its origins. Their journey puts them on a path on which they discover horrific secrets that shake them to their core.
The 64 episodes long anime is named as one of the best of all time. Even though the show was released back in 2003, it still has a massive fan following all over the world, which is very rare for a show that old.
The protagonist of the show is Ichigo Kurosaki, who can see ghosts. His life changes when he obtains the Soul Reaper’s powers from another Soul Reaper and is entrusted with the responsibility to defend human-beings from evil spirits. His new powers are beneficial as he guides the departed souls to the afterlife.
The show is often compared with the Naruto and Dragon Ball series, which are undoubtedly two of the most influential shows of all time. Even though it is based on the manga by Tite Kubo, the show is unique, and many of the storylines are original. This March, it was made official that the last manga story will have an anime adaptation, which is a piece of excellent news for all the Bleach fans. But you need not be a Bleach fan to rejoice; the show is exceptional because of its storyline and action, opting not to watch this epic anime being an action anime fan is criminal.
Hunter x Hunter
Hunter x Hunter is the story of a young boy named Gon Freecss who embarks on a journey to become the world’s best hunter. He has been through a lot of pain and suffering in his life, but his cheerful nature never will make anyone feel sorry for him. He was abandoned by his father, who turned out to be a world-renowned hunter with a very high reputation. On his journey, he faces many challenges, makes new friends, and encounters the paranormal. But he is not the type to give up on his dreams as he keeps pursuing his goals no matter how hard the situations get.
Hunter x Hunter is the perfect anime for the people who prefer action but don’t like too much violence and blood. The anime can sustain a very colorful and vibrant vibe even though it’s about hunters who pursue and fight dark creatures on their adventurous pursuits.
