100 good anime to watch

Well, Hello there!

Now that you have clicked the link, it is sure that either you are new to anime or are a veteran who is in a hope to find any interesting one to binge. I will not let your hopes die.


What is an anime?

Anime are mostly based on 'Mangas" which are nothing but comic books made in Japan. Anime is a short form of 'Animation'.

Generally when a person listen to the word 'anime' he/she is of the opinion that its a cartoon.

Well not! Anime is not a cartoon.


Why Anime is not a cartoon?

Anime cannot be considered as cartoon simply because like in cartoon where storyline, plot, characters are not that much complex and are normally made for kids, anime has complex story lines with emotionally developed characters and it is for every age group (I don't know about older people )



The List.

This list is a comprehensive one and includes anime shown on various platforms like TV, OTA, movie etc. The reason to include the animes in the list is not based on any particular criteria rather is a simple one i.e. popularity and self opinion.


Yeah! you can disagree with the list, so use the comment section enthusiastically and tell me which one I left. I will appreciate your efforts.


Keeping in view of your interest and my findings & opinions I have made this list of 100 good anime to watch before you die.
