Demon Slayer: 10/10

Genre: Action, Demons, Supernatural

Demon Slayer is one of my favourite anime. Both the story and the animation are unbelievably stellar. You could pause anywhere in any episode, print it, hang it up, and make your house look like an art museum. Stunning swordfights, supernatural powers, high stakes, a lot of heart, and even a fair amount of humor it make it the perfect anime. This anime is great if you want to get started watching anime and I highly recommend it for people who are just starting to explore the anime world.

Black Bullet: 8.5/10

Genre: Action, Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi

Black Bullet is an excellent watch if you want to see a lot of action and great fight scenes. In Black Bullet you see people who are treated differently based on their traits at birth, and despite this, they still protect the city which cast them aside. The creators of the anime were going to make a second season in 2020 but unfortunately, it was delayed due to COVID and still has not been released. Overall, this anime had a good story but it’s still unfinished, so you’ll be waiting for the second season for the story to continue. Its lack of finality makes it hard to give it a higher ranking.

Tokyo Ghoul: 7.5/10

Genre: Action, Drama, Horror, Supernatural

Tokyo Ghoul: what a mess! The Frist season of Tokyo Ghoul was a masterpiece, and it is the only thing that keeps this anime from being a 4/10. The first season had such an amazing story, and the fight scenes were phenomenal. The first season itself was a 10/10. The other seasons have the same great fight scenes, but the story is awful. There is no exposition and no interesting events; it’s just bland. If you want to watch Tokyo Ghoul, I suggest watching the first season then stopping or read the manga, since the manga is far superior to the post-freshman season of the show.

Noragami: 8.5/10

Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Supernatural

This anime is the story of a minor god named Yato who wishes to be a major god. On this journey, he runs into a special young girl named Hiyori who can jump out of her body and interact with the gods who are invisible to normal humans. Yato’s weapon is Yukine, a rebellious child who never got to experience life because he died as a child. Overall, the story is filled with comedy, action, and a bit of romance, but sometimes it can get a bit confusing.

Assassination Classroom: 9.5/10

Genre: Action, Comedy, School, Supernatural

Assassination Classroom has some of my favorite characters of all time. Every single one of the characters is lovable—and I mean every single one. The concept of the story is enthralling. A class of kids must assassinate their teacher, but by the end of the anime you come to like the teacher so much since he brought a class of kids rejected by the school to becoming the best students and great assassins. This anime is comedic and is hilarious for all ages. I would highly recommend that you put this anime on your watch list.
