Top 4 Best Anime Series of The 2010s
Anime series were once seen as cartoons for nerds or just a phase kids get through. In the past decade, however, they became a source of entertainment for children and adults alike. There are thousands of anime series out there, no matter if you are into horror, romance, ancient heroes, or weird red pandas working in a corporation.
Another reason why anime series became so popular is that they are now easier to find and watch online, most of the time for free. For all anime lovers our theme, we have put together a list of what we consider are the best 4 creations of the 2010s, together with where you can find them.
#1. One-Punch Man
Probably one of the smartest productions of modern anime, One-Punch Man answers a question many of us have asked: what happens if the hero becomes too strong? It tells the story of Saitama, who calls himself a “hero for fun”, as he becomes so powerful that he can strike his opponents down with just one punch. This results in some entertaining and humorous situations that the hero must face.
The series has two seasons so far, and if you are interested you can find the first one on Netflix.
#2. Attack on Titan
Ever since the first episode aired back in 2013, Attack on Titan was bound to become a phenomenon. The series is violent, horror at times, but the comprehensive story filled with plot twists and impressive character arcs are what keep fans coming back season after season. Eren, Mikasa, and Armin find their lives changed forever when their home town is attacked by a Colossal Titan. They join an elite team of soldiers that fight Titans, in an attempt to reclaim their town.
I’m not going to spoil the action for you, but you can find all three seasons streamed on Crunchyroll, one of the most popular anime streaming platforms. Do keep in mind that some of the content may be restricted by your region. Luckily, you can use a VPN to access the full library on Crunchyroll and enjoy their content no matter where you are.
#3. My Hero Academia
If you are into goofy characters and fun action, My Hero Academia should be on your watching list. You can see a lot of influences from series such as Naruto and Dragon Ball, which defined what is called shonen manga, but instead of focusing on the battles, the show focuses more on the plot and the relationship characters build. This makes the characters much more relatable and their fights loaded with emotion.
With season 5 coming up, you can binge My Hero Academia on Crunchyroll, as well as on Hulu if you have a subscription.
Probably the cutest series on this list, Aggretsuko follows the story of Retsuko, an office worker who also happens to be a red panda.
Her goal is to find love and get married, but the dystopian corporate world she lives in might get in the way of Retsuko’ journey towards true love.
You can find both seasons of Aggretsuko on Netflix, together with a very special Christmas episode.
