100. The Way of the Househusband

 

The Way of the Househusband

 

Starting our massive list, we have one of the newest installments to the Netflix platform, The Way Of The Househusband.

 

This 5 episode ONA series was released exclusively on Netflix and it happened just now.

 

And by just now I mean in April 2021. Ohh yeah, it's THAT new. It is an anime adaptation of a manga of the same name.

 

The manga was written and illustrated by Oono Kousuke. The story is about a guy named Tatsu also known as 'Immortal Tatsu'.

 

How did he get that name? Well, he was a Yokuza, and an incredibly strong one with that.

 

I know, not his name seems understandable. Anyway, my man Tatsu was a Yakuza who was feared by his rivals as well as the police.

 

Someone who was looked upon as the strongest Yakuza out there. However, one day, his existence was erased.

 

No, he wasn't killed actually but rather, he disappeared. Later on, he showed up again to his acquaintances but this time, he is a bit different.

 

A bit too different. The Yakuza that feared the entire underworld is now a House Husband.

 

Yeah, a freaking househusband! But this stupidity just doesn't stop here. Oh No No! His gangster background brings in more trouble in his life than he already has.

 

Moreover, the act of slaughtering people is replaced with the act of slaughtering chickens for a tasty dish.

 

His new life is filled with daily life chores that may not seem to be much of a hitch but his criminal background just keeps the idiocy going!

 

I assume that you are one of those who likes to laugh. And if you do, I am certain that this anime would be a great watch for you this evening.

 

 

99. Baki

 

Baki

 

Where are my street-fighter fanboys!!! I have just the right anime for you? Yup, it's none other than the fearsome Baki.

 

Baki is 26 episodes long ONA series that hit the internet back in 2018. It is an anime adaptation of a manga done by TMS Entertainment.

 

The manga was written and illustrated by Itagaki Keisuke. The story is about a guy named Baki Hanma who wishes to defeat his father, Yuujirou.

 

Why you may ask? Well, that's because Yuujirou is the Strongest Man In The World.

 

Therefore, Baki wants to ensure that he stands as the strongest. After completing an underground tournament that he won, he realizes that he just can't rest now.

 

The guy who was the runner-up in that tournament warns Baki about danger. A danger that can break anyone against.

 

Five death row inmates have escaped. These guys are no less than monsters as their strengths are unmatched.

 

The biggest problem is that Baki is recognized as the winner of the tournament. Therefore, all those monsters would be seeking him for the sake of experimenting with defeat!

 

How will Baki and the others come over them? Well, you have to find out!

 

Baki is one of the most popular martial arts series of its year. The incredible and brutal action is appreciated by fans all around the globe.

 

If you love hand-to-hand combat and martial arts, Baki is the anime for you man.

 

Just beware, it's freaking brutal.

 

 

98. Sword Art Online

 

Sword Art Online

 

Anime fans who started out just recently would have heard about it. One of the most popular Isekai of all time, Sword Art Online.

 

Sword Art Online is a 25 episode TV anime that aired back in 2012. It is an anime adaptation of its light novel sister.

 

The light novel was written by Kawahara Reki and illustrated by BUNBUN. This anime from A-1 pictures revolves around a guy named Kirito and his journey in Aincrad.

 

What is Aincrad you may be thinking? Well, Aincrad is the Virtual Reality world my boy is stuck in.

 

Let me explain. The anime is set in 2022 where technology has reached new heights.

 

The advancements are not only amazing but seem somewhat unrealistic. However, they are indeed true.

 

One of such advancements is 'NerveGear' technology. NerveGear tech allows you to control your character in a game using nothing but your mind.

 

Yup, just like in real life, you can control and command your entire body just using your brain.

 

Seems interesting, doesn't it? Well, my boy Kirito, a hardcore gamer, also felt super excited when he first started playing a game called Sword Art Online.

 

This game was an exclusive distribution and Kirito managed to get his hands on one of its copies.

 

However, upon logging in, into the world, he realized that he can't log out or quit the game.

 

Truth hits him harder than a truck when he realizes that the creator of this game has tricked them (players) to stay in this game until they complete it.

 

The problem is, this world of Aincrad has multiple fights and conflicts going on. To complete the game, Kirito must survive through all the 100 levels.

 

However, if he dies in this game, he would be dead in real life. That's right!

 

His life depended upon that game and one wrong move can lead him to God.

 

Will Kirito be able to wake up alive? This anime made an impact when it first aired and people liked it a lot.

 

Being one of the recognized Isekais, Sword Art Online offers an interesting and attractive premise that any teenager would fall for.

 

 

97. Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress

 

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress

 

Do you like a world where humanity is at the brink of extinction and there's despair all over?

 

Man, you are cruel! But you are not the only person who seeks entertainment in humanity's extinction.

This 12 episode TV series made its way in 2016. It is an original anime that was directed by Araki Tetsurou and animated by WIT Studios.

 

The anime focuses on a guy named Ikoma who builds and services heavily equipped trains.

 

These trains are built for the sake of the safe travel of their passengers. What are the passengers being saved from?

 

Well, these people live in a world where humanity is really close to extinction thanks to 'Kabane'.

 

Kabane are mindless creatures who have an infinite appetite that seeks nothing but human flesh.

 

Defeating these monsters is not something anyone can do because the only way to defeat them is to destroy their hearts.

 

The difficulty starts when you realize that their hearts aren't that easy to destroy. This is because Kabane has hearts enclosed in a steel frame.

 

With the idea of being able to destroy this Kabane, Ikoma created a machine that he believes is capable of eradicating them.

 

Now with a sense of freedom in his mind, Ikoma improvises this weapon and hopes to use it as soon as possible.

 

However, his wait would be much shorter than he thought. Deadly Kabane is right on the corner, is Humanity ready to fight them head-on?

 

The anime won the 2016 Newtype Anime Awards for Best TV Anime. If you are having a free Sunday this week and you want some high-octane action and excitement, add Kabaneri to your watchlist as soon as you can.

 

 

96. Scum's Wish

 

Scum's Wish

 

Looked upon by many as one of the most unique romance series out there, we have Scum's Wish.

 

This 12 episode seinen anime aired back in 2017. It is an anime adaptation of its manga.

 

The manga was written and illustrated by Yokoyari Mengo. The story is about a couple who appears to be 'Ideal' at first but actually has a sad reality.

 

Hanabi Yasuraoka and Mugi Awaya are looked upon as a duo that is close to perfection.

 

However, the truth stands as these two share a similar emotion. That emotion is Pain.

 

The pain of not being able to be with your true love. For Hanabi, her true love has always been Narumi Kanai, her childhood friend in her neighborhood.

 

Never has she ever felt for anyone else except him. However, reality shocks her with the fact that Narumi is his homeroom teacher now.

 

The wound grows even wider when Hanabi realizes that Narumi also happens to be in a happy relationship with Akane Minagawa, the music teacher.

 

If we talk about Mugi, he has always looked at Akane with a heart in his eye.

 

However, her relationship with Narumi hits him harder than a truck. Therefore, these two broken hearts meet each other by accident and begin a new journey.

 

A journey to overcome their own loneliness by seeking pleasure in one another. Physical relationships grow as they find themselves deep in the hole in despair.

The story is about the relationships of Shizuku Mizutani and Haru Yoshida. Let's take a look at them individually.

 

First up, we have Shizuku. She is just your typical shy high school girl who lacks social interactions and only cares about studies.

 

Friendship or relationship is something that she can't really comprehend. However, the way she looks at high school changes once she meets Haru.

 

My man Haru is a vicious menace that stopped visiting school because of a fight.

 

Even though they both might seem different on the surface, they are actually alike with respect to their social skills.

 

Funnily enough, Haru confesses to Shizuku during their meeting and they both get together. Now Shizuku, being the shy girl she is, is unable to understand the type of relationship she is in.

 

Bonds develop, feelings get stronger, and minds open up as Haru and Shizuku spend time with each other.

 

Together, they understand how feelings and emotions work. If you are a fan of shoujo anime that gives off such cute and wholesome vibes then My Little Monster could please you.

 

Have a great time.

 

 

94. Kakegurui

 

Kakegurui

 

Gambling can be a risky thing to do but how much? How much can a player lose in a game of cards?

 

Can they lose their money, their clothes, or even more? Maybe gambling can take someone's life as well.

 

And if you think that such a thought is somewhat irrational, wait until you watch Kakegurui.

The manga was written by Homura Kawamoto and illustrated by Naomura Tooru. The story is set in a high school named Hyakkaou Private Academy where the students are trained much differently than you would expect.

 

Yup, an important part of their curriculum is Gambling because of its unpredictable nature. Just like in real life, a lot of your actions lead you on a journey.

 

Whether that journey is good or not is secondary. What happens first is your gamble on a decision.

 

To understand such a gamble and to be prepared for the real world, the school promotes this activity.

 

If you are good at gambling, you are the king of this school. If you aren't, you are pathetic.

 

That's how it goes. However, significant changes occur when Yumeko Jabami joins this academy. She might seem like a normal high school girl but deep down, she is a hardcore gambler who fears no losses.

 

In this school where your bets decide your life, will Yumeko bring a stop to all the discrimination?

 

Or will she become a part of this system? This anime is really popular, especially in the gambling setting.

 

If you wanted to watch the idea of a gamble in anime format then this anime would be a good start.

After. However, later on, these boys parted ways and didn't meet again. That was until high school when our boys unite again.

 

But this union isn't as optimistic as you think it would be. The thing is, Rin has started to envy Nanase and claims that he doesn't want things to go back as they used to.

 

He wants to defeat Nanase and prove that he is a better swimmer. This idea leaves a bitter mark on their reunion.

 

Now Nagisa, Makoto, and Nanase decide to form a swimming club. However, they need a 4th member to participate in competitions.

Issei and his friends consider this school, heaven and seek a harem for themselves. However, their attitude doesn't allow them to have even a single girlfriend.

 

Luckily, Issei does end up getting a girl from another school. However, his luck runs out when that girl turns out to be a fallen angel and kills Issei.

 

She says that he has a 'Weapon' that needs to be disposed of. However, this is not where Issei's story is ending.

 

He is then reincarnated in the same world as a devil. He is basically the same person other than the fact that he is now a demon.

 

This life-saving act was performed by the President of the Occult Research Club, Rias Gremory.

 

She enslaves Issei and recruits him in her peerage. Now the Gremory peerage performs tasks to aid humans and provide their services.

 

Issei becomes a part of that peerage and meets new girls every single time. A heaven for him.

 

However, why was Issei executed in the first place and what is that 'Weapon'? Well, you have to find yourself.

 

High School DxD is a classic for the ecchi fans. Its fun and humorous tone is complemented really well with its action and emotional drama.

However, despite this ability, Beastmen seem to be tortured in this world. To overcome that, the Beastmen reside in a city called Anima City.

 

It is looked upon as a haven for Beastmen. However, when human Michiru Kagemori turns into a tanuki, witnesses that the truth of Anima City is completely different.

 

Due to a sudden bombing in the city, Michiru meets Shirou Ogami, an incredibly strong wolf and protector of Beastmen.

The story is set in the Edo period where the wealthy have a different approach.

 

You see, normally we use words to resolve problems amongst businesses and merchants. However, here at Kengan Ashura, that's not the case.

 

Talk? We don't do that here! In this world, solutions to disputes take place using Gladiators.

 

The stronger gladiator would be the one who would be favored. It's not who is correct logically, rather who is stronger.

 

In other words, strength makes the facts. Ouma Tokita is a gladiator trying to make his name.

 

He wishes to be the best and gets hired by Hideki Nogi. Nogi is a member of the Nogi group and appoints Tokita as his gladiator.

 

He also appoints Kazuo Yamashita as the manager for his works. Now together, this duo of Tokita and Kazuo fights others with the aid of the Kengan Association.

Just like Baki, Kengan Ashura has amazing fights that would give you goosebumps all along.

 

Any action anime fan just can't ignore this series.

 

 

89. Ajin

 

Ajin

 

Wouldn't I say, it's been a while since we had our last seinen anime on this list.

 

And this time, we have a horror one. Oh yeah! Seems exciting right? Well, it is.

 

After all, it's Ajin. Ajin is a 13 episode TV series that aired back in 2016.

 

The anime is adapted from a recognized manga. The manga was written and illustrated by Sakurai Gamon.

 

The story is about a mysterious species of humans known as 'Ajin'. Ajins are immortal beings that just can't be defeated.

 

They are not classified as humans and therefore, they are taken into custody right when they show up.

 

Like, if they see Ajin, he is bound to be locked. My man Kei Nagai isn't interested in Ajin.

 

He doesn't have much knowledge on that subject although he wishes to be a doctor.

 

The very little information that he has is all thanks to the news. However, his ignorance towards Ajin turns out to be a nightmare.

 

Kei himself had the misfortune of being a part of an accident and rebirth as an Ajin.

 

Now since he is an Ajin now, he is bound to be under custody. Therefore, he fights with all his will to overcome this system and stay free.

 

However, as he tries to do so, he realizes that the people of his new kind aren't as rare as he thinks.

 

If you are a fan of some good horror stuff that can put a scar on you then yeah, Ajin should be your watch.

 

It has somewhat of a similar narrative as Kabaneri of the iron fortress. So if you liked that, you would probably like this as well.

 

 

88. The Irregular at Magic High School

 

The Irregular at Magic High School

 

It's time to talk about some fantasy anime boys! So which one should we go for?

It was adapted by Studio Madhouse. The original light novel was written by Satou Tsutomu and illustrated by Ishida Kana.

 

The anime is set in a world where magic is not mythical anymore. Instead, magic has become a skill and a technical skill with that.

 

To become a great magician, one takes admission to First High School that provides education about magic.

 

The courses are, however, divided into 2 segments. The first one is known as 'Blooms', which is a group that has students with really great scores.

 

And then there are 'Weeds' who are students who aren't that good performers. Blooms get enrolled in the first course while weeds get involved in the second course.

 

The siblings Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba took the entrance exam of First High School. Now Miyuki managed to get a spot in the first score.

 

However, Tatsuya didn't. Even though Tatsuya didn't have such an incredible score in the practical exam, his physical abilities and extensive knowledge are exceptional.

 

This makes him an irregular individual. Thus, the name, The irregular at magic high school.

 

The anime is not only fun to watch but the protagonist is really badass. If you like your Overpowered protagonist group then you should definitely take a look at this amazing series.

 

 

87. Seraph Of The End

 

Seraph Of The End

This virus affects everyone above the age of 13 and thus, the children are not affected.

 

However, the misfortune for children doesn't stop anyway. These children are kidnapped by vampires for the sake of their blood and thus, they reach a new world with almost no adult to be found.

 

As time passes, Yuuchiro Hyakuya, a kid who survived the virus, decides to escape this world.

 

This world where he has been trapped by Vampires just for the sake of his world.

 

With freedom in his eyes, he and his friend Mika along with some other kids decide to leave the world.

 

However, during that process, all of those kids are killed by Vampires and only Yuu manages to make it out.

 

Now, when he gets out of this world, he realizes that the entire humanity isn't gone and instead, he has the chance to take revenge.

 

Now with the intent to take revenge on the vampires who killed his 'Family', Yuu joins the sides of the humans.

 

However, the activities these humans are performing may be much darker than we think. The appeal of Seraph Of The End is its likable characters and great fights.

 

The emotional weight and emphasized idea of 'Family' are also placed beautifully. I feel this one would be a great addition to your watchlist.

Soon Kouichi realizes that a girl named Mei Misaki is ignored by everyone in the class.

 

Curious to know why, Kouichi gets involved with Mei, despite her and the other classmates' warnings.

81. Aggretsuko!

 

Aggretsuko!

 

Office work might not be the most exciting thing for the person involved in doing it.

 

Like the frustration and irritation, one develops for his/her repetitive life is so real. And such a real problem is placed comically in this fantastic series called Aggretsuko.

 

Aggretsuko or Aggressive Retsuko is a 12 episode ONA series that aired back in 2018.

 

The anime is directed by Rareko and animated by Fanworks. It was produced by Netflix itself.

 

Oh yeah. The anime tells us the stereotypical happening in an office with a glass of humor added to it.

 

For example, we have our ruling boss who does nothing, like seriously nothing. Then we have those who cater to the boss for no reason.

 

And then some people work their face-off to keep up for a great performance. Retsuko the red panda falls in the final category.

 

She is the one who stays up nights long just to complete the work her colleagues are lazy to do.

 

Out of this horribly stressful life, Retsuko likes to let off some steam in a local death metal karaoke club.

80. Welcome To Demon School! Iruma kun

 

Welcome To Demon School! Iruma kun

 

Time to talk about some more Isekai, weebs. You see, the appeal of Isekai is more or less, the fun and enjoyable nature of the series.

 

And when we want some fun and enjoyable Isekai, Iruma Kun is a name that we should remember.

 

This 23 episode anime aired back in 2019. It is an anime adaptation of a manga.

 

The manga was written and illustrated by Nishi Osamu. Whereas the anime was animated by Bandai Namco Pictures.

 

The story is about Iruma Kun (obviously) but his full name is Iruma Suzuki. You see, my man doesn't seem to have a great life for himself.

 

His parents never cared for him or themselves either. They were always slacking off and this forced him to work even at such a young age.

 

Now irresponsible deeds from his parents just don't end here. One of the worst things his parents had done was selling him to a Demon named Sullivan.

 

Now getting yourself sold to a demon may not seem the best thing in the world.

 

Luckily, he isn't standing in the misfortune for now. Sullivan wanted Iruma just like a grandchild and not for any evil purposes.

 

So he used to take a lot of care of him. Iruma was also admitted to a school.

 

However, that school was not a regular school. It was a demon school. Now a human getting transferred into a demon school might not seem like a great idea.

 

I mean he can't perform magic and he has to conceal his identity from everyone.

 

To his favor, the chairman of the school is Sullivan himself. So it's a bit easier for him to hide but being able to hide forever is a tough task.

 

A comical and humorous tone added to the series as Iruma tries to keep his secret yet blend in with his school.

 

This Isekai anime is one of those 'Shut-your-brain-and-just-enjoy' kinds of series. You don't have to worry about 'Complexity' or 'Depth'.

 

No! Throw that out of the window. All you have to worry about is whether he would be able to hide his truth or not.

 

 

79. Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions

 

Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions

 

Aha! Some wholesome stuff is on its way ladies and gentlemen. I believe you have even heard of this one if you have been in this community for a while.

 

Yup, it's Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions. This 12 episode anime decided to show up on the TVs, back in 2012.

 

It is an anime adaptation of a light novel. The light novel was written by Torako and illustrated by Ousaka Nozomi.

 

The series follows the concept of 'chuunibyou' and its effects on Yuuta Togashi. Chuunibyou, to explain in the best way possible, is the idea of being an individual from a fantasy world.

 

Sounds crazy? Well, let me explain. As you all know, there have been multiple stages in our life where we looked at ourselves a bit differently.

 

We considered ourselves 'special' and deviated from the masses. This act of considering oneself 'special' can go as far as looking at oneself as a being from a realm that doesn't even exist.

 

A fantasy realm. So, my boy, Yuuta Togashi has had his share of such days.

 

And as you would have guessed, this idea brings in a lot of embarrassment with it.

 

Thus, Yuuta, being known as the 'Dark Flame Master', also experienced a lot of embarrassment as well.

 

So he decided to leave all of this and move on. All of this stupid stuff that happened in middle school is supposed to be overlooked by Yuuta in high school.

 

Thus, he chooses a high school that's really far away from his middle school. However, his approach of living a chuunibyou free life shatters as he meets Takanashi Rikka.

 

Now Rikka, just like Yuuta, had her share of chuunibyou. She proclaims herself as the vessel of the 'Wicked Eye'.

 

In other words, she hasn't overcome the stage of chuunibyou yet. Now Yuuta, a man who wanted to give up on his delusions, met a girl who has those delusions.

 

Ironic, isn't it? And this irony continues as he and Rikka get to know each other better and spend more time together.

 

This anime is specifically for people who love their wholesome, moe, cute, etc kind of stuff.

 

Throw in some KyoAni magic and bam! You have a fantastic series to accompany you this evening.

 

By the way, here's a little trivia for you. This series was an honorable mention in the 2010 Kyoto Animation Awards.

These species have fast regeneration and a human-like appearance. However, the most decisive factor for ghouls is their brute strength.

 

Moreover, these guys don't like burgers or anything for that matter. They like human flesh though, which is, you know, an interesting food source.

 

Anyway, these ghouls have taken over the city and are the potential reason for many human deaths.

 

Now our boy Kaneki Ken is far away from all this misery. However, his life gets entangled with Ghouls thanks to his date.

 

Yeah. He got his life threatened because of his date. The reason is that my boy accidentally dated a Ghoul and the Ghoul tried to feast on him.

 

However, luck plays in his favor and he manages to survive. The problem is, he is not a human anymore.

 

He is a Ghoul now. And losing humanity is a nightmare. Therefore, Kaneki has started to live this nightmare where he has to eat his own kind just to survive.

His brutal life with no one to rely on was taking severe turns when suddenly something happened.

 

Atsushi saved a man named Dazai Osamu from drowning and that act turned out to be his life changer.

So here we are. Way too high on the list I can't even see down.

 

And if it's THIS high then we need a series that deserves to be here as well.

 

And I don't think many of you will disagree if I said that HunterxHunter is the deserving one for this spot.

 

HunterxHunter is a 148 episode long TV anime that aired back in 2011. It is an anime adaptation of a manga series.

 

The manga was written and illustrated by Togashi Yoshihiro. The story is about a guy named Gon Freecs who wishes to find his father.

 

And to do so, he becomes what we call a 'Hunter'. Hunters are people assigned with tough tasks like catching criminals or searching for treasures.

 

Now Gon Freecs begins his journey to become a hunter only to realize that this is not going to be an easy task.

 

Grouping with Killua, Kurapika, and Dr. Leorio, Gon starts his journey to become the best hunter possible.

 

HunterxHunter is one of the most critically acclaimed and loved series in the anime industry.

 

It has a great flow of emotions and fun that can appeal to anyone including you.

 

 

2. Steins Gate

 

Steins Gate

 

So the list is about to reach its climax. And the runner-up for this list is the anime that is unanimously loved in the anime community.

 

One of the most well-executed and presented anime ever, we have Steins Gate. Steins Gate is a 12 episode TV anime that aired back in 2014.

 

It is an anime adaptation of a visual novel directed by Hamasaki Hiroshi and animated by Studio White Fox.

 

The story is about Okabe Rintaro, a self-proclaimed mad scientist who creates advanced gadgets for the future.

 

Although his only notable invention is a microwave that turns bananas into a pile of green gel.

 

Living with his fantasies, Okabe spends most of his day in his rented lab. However, this microwave that he created isn't an ordinary gadget.

 

Soon he realizes that unintentionally, he has created a machine that can send information from present to past or future.

 

Steins Gate isn't a series that you can define beautifully in a synopsis. For the most part, it's just your time travel stuff but in reality, the way this simple time travel is presented is incredible.

 

If you want some literal mind-blowing stuff then Steins Gate is the anime for you.

 

 

1. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

 

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

 

The anime is widely regarded as a 'Perfect' show. The anime gave a new direction to the anime medium and its excellence.

 

The anime made people realize what a 'Shounen' series is capable of. Ranking at #1 on our list, we have Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

 

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is a 64 episode long TV anime that aired back in 2009.

 

It is an anime adaptation of a manga series written and illustrated by Arakawa Hiromu.

 

The story revolves around the concept of 'Equivalent Exchange'. One must give something of equal value for what they are asking.

 

That is the primary rule of Alchemy. However, what would stand as an equivalent exchange for a soul?

 

Well, the Elric brothers find the answer to it, the hard way. They attempt to revive their dead mother using Alchemy but end up losing body parts of themselves.

 

To bring back their bodies, Edward and Alphonse go on a journey to find the Philosopher's Stone.

 

A stone that acts as an exception to the law of exchange. However, their search for this stone would lead them to the darkest secrets of this world as well as Alchemy.

 

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is widely regarded as 'Perfect' or 'Masterpiece' due to its excellent balance of every technical aspect.

 

From characters to pacing, from animation to choreography, the series manages to exceed our expectations in all these fields.
