Anime has given us some really great music-themed series over the years. From the cute and adorable K-On! to the sweet and romantic Nodame Cantabile, and of course, the head bangin' rock masterpiece that is Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad. There is no shortage of great shows that will appeal to all kinds of musical tastes and preferences. Countless other anime shows have come out since, all offering their own unique take on the diverse genre. Fast forward to 2019 and one show, in particular, has been making waves with audiences worldwide and that show is called Given.
Given is an anime adaptation of a Japanese yaoi manga of the same name that was written and illustrated by Natsuki Kizu. The 11-episode series premiered in July and just its first season run in September. You'd think that a yaoi manga (a romance between males) would not do well but this show proves that that is not the case. It has been praised as "one of the season's most emotionally resonant offerings" as well as for its great visuals, soundtrack, and direction. Its reception has been so good, in fact, that a film sequel is already slated for a 2020 release. If you'd like to watch it and is wondering what are the best websites to watch Given anime online, you can catch it on Crunchyroll through its simulcast run of the anime with Japan. A North American English-language release is slated for 2020 through Viz Media though so if you can wait it out for a bit that is definitely one to watch out for. Be sure to check out the list below for more updates in the future.
