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.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.
