Millionaire Detective Balance: Unlimited

MyAnimeList Rating: 7.54

The Millionaire Detective became quite a popular anime in 2020, especially among the female and fujoshi audiences. Hardly anybody can resist Kambe Daisuke’s charm and his arrogant nature. It is a crime mystery anime that will keep you hooked till the end.

Sadly this anime is one-season and eleven-episode long but the good news is it ends with an appropriate closure. You can currently watch it on Ani-One channel.

4. Assassination Classroom (2015-2016)

Assassination Classroom

MyAnimeList Rating: 8.10.

When it comes to slice-of-life anime featuring teacher-student relationships two titles are considered genre-defining anime. One is GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka) and the other is Assassination Classroom.

Assassination Classroom is an anime that will stay with you forever. It is an extremely funny anime that will also make you cry like a baby. And Fukuyama Jun’s ‘Nuru hu hu hu’ laugh will really make you appreciate the talents of Japanese voice artists.

This anime has 2 seasons in total and you can watch both of them on a YouTube channel called Muse Asia.

3. Tokyo Revengers (2021)

MyAnimeList Rating: 8.24

If you were given the power to turn back into time, what would you do? Especially if your current life sucks and you are full of regrets. Tokyo Revengers was a highlight in 2021, and a gift to anime lovers who like high school gangster anime with a touch of fantasy and supernatural.

There are a few great side characters in this anime that will steal the show and your heart. But beware. This anime contains some mature themes like suicide and violence.

Season 2 of Tokyo Revengers is already on the way. So now might be the perfect time to finish the first season.

2. Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion (2006)

After getting a mind manipulation power from the mysterious C-2, Lelouch decides that it’s his job to take back his rightful throne and make a country that will be suitable for his younger sister Nanali.

Now, who would’ve thought you could watch Code Geass on Youtube? To be honest I was a little amazed, myself. Code Geass is an extremely popular anime in the genre of mecha. If you like sly-as-a-dog, and clever-as-a -fox characters like Light Yamagi from Death Note, trust me, you will love Lelouch VI Britannia.
