There are tons of categories to choose from and will be able to easily find something you would like! They literally have everything from software to games.

    "You have to love an old school pixel art game, but when it's anime themed too, that's just about the most fun. One Shot is very unique, and the mechanics are pretty satisfying. This is one of my all time favorite anime games on Steam to date. Even if you're not an anime fan, you'll probably love this title."

    "You have to really be an anime fan to appreciate Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed. It's one of the hardcore anime games on Steam for sure. It's not a bad game, but the girls are dressed pretty skimpily (there's even a warning), so if you have little ones around you might want to avoid this title. If you're a big anime fan, then this might be worth a try."

DID YOU KNOW?

Astro Boy was considered as the first popular anime series of all time. Mighty Atom is the original name of this well-loved anime. Osamu Tezuka is the writer and illustrator of the Japanese manga series. The story revolves around Astro Boy, an android with human emotions. Umataro Tenma created Astro Boy after his son’s death. Astro Boy was eventually sold to a robot circus but saved by Professor Ochanomizu. Professor treats him like a real son and helped him live a normal life with lots of adventures. The English volumes of Astro Boy were only made available in 2002. Astro Boy was adapted into three anime series. After being a hit abroad, Astro Boy became one of the most successful manga and anime in the world. Astro Boy’s aesthetics defined the next generation of anime like Dragon Ball, Neon Genesis, Lupin III, Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Space Battleship Yamato, and Pokemon. The Birth of Astro Boy and his world where technology and man coexist is said to have an impact on Japan’s technology innovation. A recent list also included Astro Boy in the Best-selling manga series of all time worldwide as of February 2018. 100 million copies of Astro Boy was sold globally.

    "Confusing, over-active gameplay. Who is doing what? Sure, sure, there is plenty of blood and guts, but is it *your* blood and guts? Or theirs? The story graphics are misty and smudgy, with photographic faces photoshopped onto cartoon bodies. The action is glitchy; sometimes everything is moving smoothly, until it stutters into something else entirely. This game should probably display a warning about possible epileptic seizures."

    "A classic game that i'm not sure needed a remake, but this is square and they can't help but remake everything to get an extra buck. The game is basically the same except the visuals and controls so it really is up to you whether you prefer the classic or modern style. I prefer the classic, but this is still a solid game that is worth the time to enjoy. I wish they still made games like this instead of the modern p2w garbage."

    "This is good for any Anime fan that wants to immerse themselves in a game. With a $10 pricepoint it isn't too pricey and can scratch that itch of wanting a bit of Anime flavor in their gameplay. It's an RPG that has harvesting elements to build tools needed to advance through the game."

    "I've heard good things about DFO, so I was excited to give it a try. Let's just say I was a bit underwhelmed. The story is borderline ridiculous, the controls are set up terribly, and the mechanics suck. Its just a glorified button masher with no heart."
