Er aspirations include being one of his generation’s best ninjas, as well as becoming the village’s leader.

When Naruto was a petty criminal, the anime shows him growing up to be the greatest hero of his generation.
7. Bleach (2004)
Another well-known shounen anime is ‘Bleach.’ There’s a lot of excitement, adventure, and drama in this book. As with other anime like ‘Naruto,’ ‘Dragon Ball Z,’ and so on, it uses the same tropes. The main character goes up against the antagonists. So, as the bad guys get stronger, our hero must train harder to keep up his strength and defeat them. Bleach makes extensive use of this strategy.

6. Youjo Senki (2017)
‘Youjo Senki’ is a must-watch for fans of magic anime. The series features a protagonist who is cunning, selfish, and borderline evil in nature. The antagonist is expected to have these characteristics, but instead, the main character possesses them, and you can’t help but find him to be extremely amusing. It’s an anime about a man who rejects God and is reincarnated in a world of magical conflict several years in the past by God, or rather, Being X. Tanya Degurechaff is the woman in this story.

This is one of the best adventure anime series ever made. As Gon Freecs grows up, he dreams of becoming a hunter like his dad. In the world of ‘Hunter x Hunter,’ the job of Hunter is highly regarded.

4. One Piece (1999)
If you haven’t seen it, you’ve probably heard of the anime series ‘One Piece.’ Many anime fans avoid this one due to the large number of episodes. This series has around 900 episodes. But don’t let that deter you; the anime itself is quite captivating. With Monkey D. Luffy as the center of attention, the story revolves around his quest to find the legendary One Piece, which was hidden in Grand Line by Gol D. Roger’s predecessor, and to become the next Pirate King. As a result of his devil fruit power, Luffy transforms into a rubber man who can extend his limbs in any direction.

2. Dragon Ball (1986)
As far as I can remember, ‘Dragon Ball’ was one of my first anime viewings. While the show is highly entertaining, the franchise is only getting bigger with each new episode that airs. The main characters are currently on a par with deities. However, it all began when Goku (an alien from the planet Saiyan) was a child trying to survive on his own when he met Bulma, Krillin, Master Roshi, and many others. It takes him years of dedication and hard work to build on his already impressive set of superpowers and become one of Earth’s greatest heroes.

Another of my all-time favorite anime series is ‘Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.’ This is a fantastic series with a wide range of content, from action to magic, adventure to science fiction.

But it’s too late for them to correct their error, and Alphonse and Edward both die as a result. Using his right hand, Edward manages to secure his brother’s psyche to a suit of armor.
