Two teenagers are united by this phenomenon, which speaks of love, youth, and the implacable force of destiny.
3 Inuyashiki: The Last Hero
Undoubtedly, one of the most acclaimed (and commented on) anime in recent years, based on Hiyora Oku’s manga.

The question that we will be asked next is one of the great unknowns of the human being: are we inherently good or irremediably bad?

For Isaac Asimov fans.
5 Kabaneri: The Iron Fortress (Kōtetsujō no Kabaneri)
It all started with this 2016 series, which would be followed by up to three films (at the moment) that confirm that the story directed here by Tetsurō Araki has captivated the public. It is not for less: in a dystopian Industrial Revolution, humans are threatened by terrible monsters, which are decimating the population. Only a few will be able to save them from extinction.
A sect known as the Genuine Love Society has captured two members of the Yukawa family, and to save them they will have to use a power inherited from generations: Stasis, a place where time is stopped and dangers abound. Based on the Seita Horio manga.
7 The Boy and the Beast (2015)
This has been one of the last films by Mamoru Hosoda (the most recent one, ‘Mirai, my little sister’), one of the great anime masters of our time, and in whose stories fantasy meets love relationships and friendship. This is the case of this film where a child exchanges the solitude of the streets of Tokyo for an imaginary world where Kumatetsu will become his spiritual guide and companion of infinite adventures (and discussions).
8 After the rain (Koi wa Ameagari no You ni)
Based on Jun Mayuzuki’s manga, this series tells the story of a 17-year-old girl, Akira Tachibana, who must leave athletics due to injury. A terrible moment that will coincide with the entry into her life of a man much older than her with whom she will fall hopelessly in love.
9 Juliet’s boarding school (Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet)
Two fictional worlds (one similar to feudal Japan, the other closer to the West) confront each other in this anime based on Yōsuke Kaneda’s manga, which centers his story on a neutral place between the two, the Dahlia Academy, where different people reproduce the rivalries of their countries. And what happens? Well, a full-fledged ‘Romeo and Juliet’.
This is one of the active anime series that is generating the most comments, and not only because the eighth episode of its first season has been delayed much more than expected. Adapted from Mado Nozaki’s novel, it portrays a Tokyo prosecutor’s investigation into a scandal involving a pharmaceutical company and hiding a larger plot than he thought. Mystery and suspense are served.
