What are the best anime about pandemics and virus outbreaks?

Dave - Contributor

The great thing about anime is that it can draw inspiration from just about anything and the result would be an interesting show, more often than not. That has been the case for anime about pandemics and virus outbreaks. These shows have become quite relevant given the situation that the world is facing right now. While we all practice social distancing by staying at home and being safe, we are all trying to figure out ways to pass the time. It will be impossible to not think about the virus so these shows might just be what you need right now. Happy watching and tell us what you thought in the comments section below.

    Guilty Crown tells the story of a world hit by a virus outbreak and has left it in a state of chaos and struggling to survive. It does a great job of expressing the idea and severity of a virus outbreak and portraying it through its complex characters and dystopian world.

  2. 3Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress


    If the anime Attack on Titan and the film Snowpiecer were combined, it would result in something like Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. It takes cues from both of those and creates something that's unique and all of its own. This is a great anime about pandemics and virus outbreaks that you should check out.

  2. 5Black Bullet


    Black Bullet is an anime that tells the story of a world hit by a virus outbreak and has turned the majority of its population into man-eating monsters.
