There have been many shows this summer which have done extremely well and are worth watching. There are also shows which have not fared well with the audience. People looking for a quality series to watch might end up making the wrong choice. So, we have compiled a list of anime that is undoubtedly the best of this season.
The God of High School
The God of High School is set up in a mythical world where humans, demons, and gods live in different realms. The Human realm for humans, the Sage Realm for the demons, mythical creatures and monsters and The Heavenly Realm for the Gods. But this division of the world was only created after Gods defeated the demons who wanted to rule over humans. The Gods even granted humans their power (“Borrowed Power”) which they can use to protect themself as the realm of humans was the weakest of the three realms with Heavenly Realm being the strongest.
Jin-Mo-Ri, the protagonist is a 17-year-old martial artist who participates in a tournament organized by a suspicious corporation. The tournament is looking for representatives for the national level who will go on to represent South Korea in the World Tournament. But the competition is not as straightforward as it appears on the surface because participants are not fighting using only ordinary martial arts but also “Borrowed Power”.
The God of High School captures fighting scenes beautifully using motion capture which makes the fights more realistic. The show does not have a very complicated plot. But if you want to see some action The God of High School is the show to watch.
The Misfit of Demon King Academy
The Misfit of a Demon King Academy is the story of the Demon King who sacrificed his life to ensure peace and harmony but is reincarnated after 2000 years later to find half-blood demons being oppressed by the royals. Since they are his descendants, Anos Voldigoad can’t accept the treatment that is meted out to them. So, he vows to become the demon king again, but he is faced with the task of graduating from the Demon King Academy first if he wants to do that. Moreover, the royals will completely detest a half-blood becoming the Demon King as this will destabilize the power balance, which they naturally don’t want. So, Anos has to face not only his peers but the full-blooded royals as well who would leave no stones unturned to ensure that he fails.
The Misfit of Demon King Academy is an action-packed show with almost comical differences in the powers of Anos and his peers which makes for a light-hearted show to binge-watch with friends.
Japan Sinks: 2020
Japan Sinks: 2020 is based on a novel by Sakyo Komatsu which was written in 1973. It follows the Muto family during a series of earthquakes. The Muto family tries to get their lives back to normalcy by trying to find their way to safety but are constantly pushed on the backfoot as dark and violent events unfold one after the other.
The show is very unpredictable and dark which makes it even more interesting. Moreover, the music sets the viewers up for a great roller-coaster of emotions. It hits differently because of the present world scenario and is undoubtedly a must-watch.
The Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld 2nd Season
The Sword Art Online is set up in the near future where a virtual reality multiplayer online role-playing game by the same name is released. The players who play the game are stuck in it and made to fulfil certain tasks before they are allowed to leave the game. The 90-episode long show has evolved a lot ever since its release. The show has only gotten more violent over time as well as action-packed. The protagonist from the earlier season, Kirito has played a smaller role in the War of Underworld as other characters have been given more detailed characterizations.
Obviously, the highly successful show is a very long series to watch since it spans almost a hundred episodes. But, for all the action anime fans, there is no better show than the Sword Art Online. Make sure you give this one a shot, you won’t regret it.
Two hundred and fifty years before 198, The Great Disaster occurred which consumed the world in flames rendering most nations inhabitable. The only place of refuge is the Tokyo Empire, which despite losing some of its landmasses was still much safer. But there have been incidents of spontaneous human combustion for which special fire brigades called the Fire Force are tasked to investigate and stop. The Fire Force was formed with people with the power of pyrokinesis.
The protagonist, Shinra Kusakabe has the ability to ignite his feet as per his wishes which earned him the nickname “Devil’s Footprints”. He joins the Special Fire Force in order to end the infernal attacks that have become very common. But he finds out that a mysterious doomsday cult is responsible for his brother’s abduction and his mother’s death. Moreover, this cult is also behind the infernal attacks. So Shinra has both professional and personal motivations to go after them.
Now, in season 2, Shinra is getting even stronger and more powerful. The show with all the action and mysteries makes for an intriguing watch. Shinra is now on a quest to discover the reality of spontaneous human combustion. It doesn’t get any better than this. The show is one of a kind and will keep you on the edge of your seat.
This concludes our list of the best anime you can watch this season.
