Why should you watch Naruto?
So, the question that arrives here is why you should watch Naruto when there are other action-packed anime like the attack on titan. I liked this anime because it does not only contain a good amount of action, but it also has a good amount of humor as well as some emotional moments that will really make you want to cry.
If that’s not enough here are some of my favorite quotes from Naruto that’s hit on a different level.
“A place where someone still thinks of you is a place you can call home”Jiraya
“People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That’s how they define “reality”Itachi Uchiha
“As long as the concept of ‘winner’ exist ‘loser’ will also exist”Madara Uchiha

This is the story of a group of 7 strongest people each representing one of the seven deadly sins present in the world. For example, the seven deadly sins ‘ban’ represents the sin of greed which is symbolized by the fox in the anime. Seven deadly sins ‘Meliodas’ represent the sin of wrath or anger as you may call, symbolized by a dragon.

Once parasyte have attacked and took control of a human body, they can assume any deadly form they choose: monster with giant teeth, winged demons, creatures with blades for hands.
After taking control of a human body, most of them hide their lethal purpose behind an ordinary human face. No one knows about their secret until one parasyte tries to take over a high school student and fails to do so, resulting in the coexistence of that student named Shinji and the parasyte.

It would be a shame if I am making a list of top anime and I don’t mention death note,1st anime I ever watched. In fact, this was the first anime for most people who started watching anime. In this anime there is a notebook named death note, whosever name is written in that book will die.
The book belongs to Shinigami (grim reaper), who drops it into the human world just because he was bored sitting above in the death realm. The book is picked by a high school student who first used the death note to kill a criminal who was trying to harass someone just to check whether it is real or not.

This is like a gateway to enter the anime world. It is one of the most impressive anime series made to date with a great storyline, suspense, and great animation. Not only that it is only 37 episodes long which you won’t even know when it ended.
After reading the review and seeing this score from Rotten Tomatoes you are not convinced to watch this then I am not sure what will.

Let’s end this list with one of the most emotional anime movies, your name (Kimi no na wa). It is a romance-comedy movie with a slice of life. The story goes like a Tokyo high school boy wakes up one day and found himself in a girl’s body.
At first, he was confused about what was happening but then he thought that he is in a dream. The same thing happens with the girl she finds herself in the boy’s body and disregarded it as a dream.
But that was not the case here it was not a dream. Somehow, they both were interchanging their body on random days. They both realized what was the case and tried not to ruin other’s life when they were in their body.
Suddenly they stopped changing their bodies. But remembered the sensation they had. I would leave the overview here as more than this would ruin the movie and I wouldn’t like to do it
