Top Five Animes You Should Watch

Top Five Animes You Should Watch

I am an Otaku. If you do not know what that means, in short: I love Anime. The brilliant colors, the sound of the Japanese voice actors, special effects used and often serious/dark storylines that can take place. Like most Americans, cartoons were seen as something a child watches and will eventually grow out of, mainly due to the very shallow nature of older cartoons. Seasons meant nothing to Bugs Bunny or Tom and Jerry because their episodes rarely ever referenced one another and it was mainly episodic and meant for cheap laughs.

If you grew up in the 80s or 90s, you were introduced to Toonami.

For a few hours after dinner was hours of Anime on Cartoon Network(The best thing they have done and ever done and they should bring it back on their old schedule.) Tenchi Muyo, Dragon Ball Z, Rurouni Kenshin, Gundam Wing, Yuyu Hakusho, and so many others were unleashed onto us and told us stories far too deep and covered with mature themes that we had not ever seen before.

We learned that honor, friendship, respect, and loyalty matter and should be held in high regard. When evil rolls into town, you do have the power to confront and overcome it, but you must first be willing to do what others are too afraid to do and yes, the road shall be hard and yes, you may walk it alone for a time but it is the right path and you shall know that you are just. Your actions shall ignite the flame of positive change. (Damn, I should write an article about why Anime is rad!)

But I digress. If you are an Otaku like me or liked Anime but are not sure which ones to watch, have no fear for Geek Lyfe is here! *This list is in no particular order*
