Perhaps, an underrated show that you've watched years ago? Share it with us through the comments section below!
In 2014's Tokyo Anime Award, one of the prestigious award-giving bodies in Japan, hailed Shingeki No Kyojin or Attack on Titan the rightful recipient of the Animation of the Year award. Apart from its superb animation, the anime series has a dark twist of fate for its characters, too. Hajime Isayama, the author of the manga, is known for killing off major characters. Isn't it ironic that that makes Attack on Titan one of the best anime shows to watch today?
Unlike most protagonists in anime series who strive for greatness, One-Punch Man delivers a different angle. Saitama, the show's lead character, is already the strongest in his world. He's the ultimate crème de la crème and you'd think that he has everything, right? But, no. Our hero is bored since no one can beat him. Yes, that is his major dilemma. One-Punch Man's witty and funny scenes coupled with breathtaking action clips is a must-watch so make sure you don't miss this one out!

The concept of time travel is nothing new in the world of science fiction. In the case of the anime Steins;Gate though, it somehow gets applied in such a weird way that you can't help but think if it's actually possible. If the idea of a mad scientist using a microwave to send a banana back in time isn't weird, we don't know what is. Get past that though, and you'll realize the show is trying to tell a much deeper story. At its core, it's truly about a group of flawed by likable characters and how they are affected by the often-difficult decisions they make in their lives. It's funny, intense, and an occasionally dark anime show and it's everything you'd hope this kind of show would be.
Fate/Stay Night is an action adventure dark fantasy anime series written by Takuya Sato. This battle-filled anime is about how a magi and a mystical female warrior team up for a prestigious battle tournament.
