Want To Start Watching Anime? Start With These 6

Anime is unlike any other medium.

There are so many genres within anime, like slice of life, romance, horror, and more. However, there are just a few anime that are so well-done that everyone can enjoy regardless of what their favorite genre is. Those are the ones that get so many new fans into the world of anime.

The synopses written are all spoiler free so you can fully enjoy whatever anime you decide to watch!

All of these picks can all be found on Netflix.

1. Death Note


Death Note has a special place in my heart as the first anime I ever watched and the one that got me hooked.

Without going into too much detail, Death Note follows Light Yagami, a genius high schooler who finds a notebook owned by a God of Death. The events after he found the notebook is astounding, it's a must watch.

2. Devilman Crybaby

Devilman Crybaby follows Akira, the said crybaby, who through dramatic and traumatic events, turns into a devilman, which is of course, the combination of a demon and a human man. This anime is slow to start, but the ending is both extremely sad and satisfying.

3. The Promised Neverland


Between you and me, this is my favorite anime so my review will be very brief as to not spoil too much.

The Promised Neverland follows three children in an orphanage. I realize how vague that description sounds, but please watch it, this anime is more than deserving of your time.

4. Attack on Titan


Attack on Titan is honestly in my top 3 anime after watching 50+. It's so good, and almost everyone who has watched it agrees.

It follows Eren Yeager and his world after being attacked by, you guessed it, titans after 100 years of peace. There are so many twists and turns that you just have to watch it; saying anything more would be a disservice to the show.

5. Kakegurui


Kakegurui is an anime about a high school and its intense hierarchy only based gambling. It's an intense show with gambling far beyond what you've seen before, so beware of the content of the show. Besides that, it's not the most well-written or anything, but the anime is so entertaining.

6. Parasyte

Parasyte is about an alien race that burrows itself in humans. The protagonist, Izumi, is able to stop his parasite from entering his brain, and the parasite subsequently stays in his right hand. The anime then follows both of them try to adapt to each other and the world around them now with parasites.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
