Anime allows us to journey to places that are very different from our own. Animators go to tremendous lengths to create these fantastical locales, which appear to be conjured from thin air by the talent behind them. Despite the fact that you can’t actually visit these locations, it doesn’t hurt to fantasize about them. This is a list of five anime countries that we’d like to visit in the future.
1. The Kingdom of Dowa (ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.)
Each country and region in the world has its own unique history and culture. These gorgeous places, though, aren’t always accessible. In the Kingdom of Dowa, a country divided into 13 districts, we have a front row seat thanks toACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept.
Throughout its history, the country has been subjected to the devastation and upheaval that come with a conflict. Dowa has been quiet for the last century in part because of the public service organizationACCA. It’s up to ACCA to put a halt to any murmurs of rebellion. ACCA agent Jean Otus is in charge of the investigation and must comb through all 13 states to find out the truth behind the rumors.
ACCA: 13-Territory Inspection Dept. is not just fascinating, but it also has a rich cultural history to boot. We view all of Dowa’s regions via Jean’s eyes. Those who visit Pranetta should not miss the opportunity to ride in a dune buggy in the desert. There’s also Hare, a tropical paradise with some of the country’s healthiest residents and the most stunning beaches.
2. Alfheim (Sword Art Online)
You don’t want to die in real life when you’re playing a video game. So, despite the fact that Aincard is stunning, we’ve chosenAlfheim, the kingdom of the fairies in ALfheim Online where death isn’t final, instead. In this VRMMORPG, set a year after the events of Sword Art Online, nine fairy races compete to climb the enormous World Tree. Alfheim’s epic race will be formed by the first to reach the summit.
When Kirito escapes SAO, he discovers that Asuna is being held prisoner in ALfheim Online, where gamers assume the roles of fairies. In order to save Asuna, Kirito jumps back into the virtual world and reunites with old acquaintances.
Alfheim, like other wonderful vacation places, is fully surrounded by water, and we get to see it up close and personal during their journey. The Alne plateau, located in the continent’s heart, is separated from the fairy worlds by a high mountain range. If you’ve ever wanted to visit the Alps in anime form, this is your chance.
3. Japan (My Hero Academia)
It’s not hard to envisage a world where people have incredible talents because of all the superhero shows and movies out there. AQuirks, or superpowers, are common in My Hero Academia, where the population has 80% of them. It is about a quirkless adolescent named Izuku Midoriya who acquires the strength of his idol and number one hero, All Might. Midoriya, on the other hand, must first complete his training at the prestigiousU.A. High School before he can call himself a hero. It’s now or never for the world’s greatest hero.
If it meant we could visit U.A. High School in this imaginary Japan, we’d be all over it. There are some of the nation’s strongest young heroes studying at the academy; All Might is a graduate of the institution. With the opportunity to live and train as a hero in My Hero Academia’s Japan, who wouldn’t want to visit (or live there)?
4. Amestris (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)
It is the second anime adaptation of the manga Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. As a scientific/mystical method to change, produce, or combine objects alchemy reigns supreme in this fantasy world. The series centers on Edward and Alphonse Elric, two brothers who set out to find the Philosopher’s Stone in order to reclaim their bodies following a botched attempt to raise their mother from the dead. All around Amesteris, they discover a dark-rooted evil that has been buried in the country’s history.
Amestris is a land any anime fan would wish to visit, despite its past of mass murdering people to manufacture Philosopher’s Stones. People in this fictitious world have the ability to change things from one form to another with little effort. Repairing damaged structures is a cinch, and even ridiculous feats like erecting ice walls in the middle of a conflict are possible. Amestris, despite its retro look, is a leader in the field of automobile armored prosthesis, or automail. Amputees can use these pieces as prosthetics as well as weapons in battle. Amestris, with its steampunk and metaphysical atmosphere, is ideal for those of us who enjoy elemental combat.
5. Land of Fire (Naruto)
Everyone has fantasized of being a ninja at some point in their lives—especially since the popular anime series Naruto, about Naruto Uzamaki’s journey to become the Hokage, debuted in the early 2000s. As a result of its enormous popularity, the shnen anime has inspired countless playground battles and video games as well as an entire community of dedicated fans. One continent is divided into multiple countries in a fictional version of Earth. Most of the story takes place in Konohagakure, a secluded village in the Land of Fire.
Jutsu is used by the countries of Naruto’s universe to preserve a delicate balance between them, much like feudal Japan. The residents of these countries undergo extensive training to harness their powers, which includes directing the elements, in order to maintain order and peace and protect themselves from attacks. To live in a world where you can use jutsu to battle evildoers and spit fire from your mouth like a dragon is an irresistible proposition.
