A 1992 anime series. It was really famous during the 90’s for its unique plot, amazing characters, and action. The plot is something like this, Yuusuke Urameshi, a 14-year-old delinquent with a dim future, throws himself in front of a moving car to save a young boy. Impressed by his ultimate sacrifice the authorities of the spirit realm consider giving him another chance. Koenma, the son of the ruler of the spirit realm, offers Yuusuke an opportunity to regain his life through completion of a series of tasks.  After their completion, he becomes a Spirit detective and with the guidance of the death god Botan, he is to thwart evil presences on helping him on his venture, Yuusuke enlists ex-rival Kazuma Kuwabara, and two demons, Hiei and Kurama.

The series contains 112 episodes. As a kid, I used to enjoy it immensely and I’m sure you guys will feel the same after you have watched the series.

9. Berserk:

The first anime adaption of the manga series of the same title was aired during 1997-1998. The second anime adoption as you guys probably know, was aired last year. I don’t think there is much I need to say about this anime. After all it is a classic. The story of this anime is pretty dark, it raises question of whether humanity is good or evil fundamentally. Mostly revolving around “The Black Swordsman” or, a wandering mercenary whose entire world from birth is warfare and bloodshed, the series explores both the best and worst of human nature.

Regardless, it is a good anime with that will make you wonder about a lot of things.

8. Akira:

An intense thriller, psychic powers, drama and action all in all these anime has everything an anime lover can ask for. So, don’t think, go ahead and watch it.




Hi this is Phoenix, one of the co-founder of AnimeHound. I like to watch different kinds of anime and analyze them. Frankly I have learned so much from anime that I never knew was possible. It has changed my view of everything. My hobbies are writing and origami.
