Anime List for Beginners Looking For Shows To Watch

Anime, believe it or not, can be for everyone if you choose the right one for you!


I highly recommend not watching long episodes of anime, such as "Naruto," "One Piece," "Fairy Tail," "Bleach," "Inuyasha" and so on because of their length, meaning how many episodes each season is. It can take you out of the greatness of all that is Japanese animation. I would recommend watching certain anime shows whose episode length is between 12 episodes and 24 episodes and to stay away from...semi erotics until ready (meaning those who are of age and courageous enough to take that step).

Below, I'm going to share with you some of my favorites and you can decide for yourself if you want to take the next step!

"Lucky Star"

Genre: Comedy/Slice of Life

Episodes: 24

Lucky Star does not have a storyline, each episode is a collection of events around the four main characters and dealing with their journey as high school students. Also, at the end of each episode, there is another mini anime happening. This anime is for all audience, regardless of the characters being female.

"Nanatsu no Taiza" 

Genre: Adventure/Fantasy

Episodes: 24

Seasons: Two, going to three

This anime, also know as "The Seven Deadly Sins", is probably the only exception to my long series, You see, it is still ongoing and very quick to watch. This anime has everything: romance, comedy, action, and an interesting plot. While I don't want to be giving a summary in case of spoilers... there is a princess searching the greatest seven warriors or assassins of the kingdom to save well...the kingdom.

"The Devil is Part Timer"

Genre: Action/Fantasy/Comedy

Episodes: 13

This anime, hands down, is about the devil running to the human realm after almost losing a battle and having to learn how to be human. Going to Earth also helps him realize how to conquer Earth. Again, trying my best not to spoil but I promise it's a good anime!

"Soul Eater"

Genre: Fantasy/Action/Comedy

Episodes: 51

Seasons: 2

Soul Eater is a classic. This anime is about weapon masters and weapons working together to become the best. However, witches plan on resurrecting a special someone that should not be around. Of course, there is more than one complication in this anime and thankfully, there are some episodes that are full of humor.

"Shugo Chara"

Episodes: 112

It is a very cute anime that deals with emotions and life goals in a unique way. There is also music, romance, a slice of life and comedy in this anime as well as action.

There are exceptions to my 'avoid' long animes due to the fact that some animes are too good to pass. In all honesty, my number one recommendation is "My Hero Academia." I would recommend "Naruto" but not everyone is capable of passing the first part of "Naruto" before delving into "Naruto Shippuden."

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes

If you can't invest time, money, and YOURSELF, maybe say no to the offer for the bride's sake!

Being in a wedding is a really big commitment. I personally think if you've never been in one before, you don't understand the time, money, and energy that goes into being a part of it.

I'll admit it, when I first met you, I wasn't sure how well things were going to work out. Although I didn't know you that well at the time, we seemed to be opposites in almost every way. You were cool, edgy, and laid-back, and I was more awkward, goofy, and anxious.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.
