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."

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

Bobbie Hall

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.
