Animes for beginners?Watch
I’ve just started watching anime and want some recommendations for some starter animes- I’ve already watched death note
Cowboy Bebop - Episodic sci-fi adventures, with a fantastic cast and soundtrack.
Attack on Titan - Great action scenes, plenty of plot twists.
Nichijou - Slapstick comedy gold.
Dr. Stone - Mad science edutainment.
I hope something here is of interest to you; if not, let me know in more detail the kinds of genres you're into, and I'll try again.
Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex is also excellent, although maybe less "easy watching"; definitely something I felt demands your full attention or you don't get much from it (even in the filler episodes).
NGE is always recommended to me although I've never watched it, and I'm not sure if I ever will some of the aesthetics are interesting but mecha anime isn't something I was ever really interested in and it sounds like some of the characters are pretty annoying.
Also Sailor Moon, of course!
-The Promised Neverland-season one is great, and only 12 episodes! So it’s pretty easy to digest except maybe the darker themes...? But the story itself is beautiful and it’s about children finding hope and building a future for themselves. Season 2 was a bit rushed but if you don’t read the manga it was pretty decent stand-alone. Sorry, it’s a bit vague, but you should watch it! (And maybe read the manga because like 100 chapters of the story was missed)
Kimetsu no Yaiba- It’s one of the top anime right now and for good reason. It’s filled with good action scenes, phenomenal animation and a fair share of touching moments. Season 1 is only... 26(?) or 25 episodes long but the story is well built enough whilst being easy to digest.
Great Pretender- I think it’s a Netflix original? Anyways the graphics are so stunning and unique, but asides from that it’s mostly pretty light hearted but has that emotional depth from the character’s backstories. It is an anime about scamming people and heists so I think it’s pretty fast paced but it shouldn’t make you feel like watching it is a drag.
Gekkan-Shoujo Nozaki Kun- I’m not really sure if you’d be into shoujo, so I didn’t leave a lot of shoujo recommendations but this one is a good one to watch! Only 12 episodes and it’s a bit skit-like but it’s hilarious and again, easy to watch! There’s almost no romance elements but if you’re into comedy, I’d suggest you watch it!
Erased- This one is pretty short, but remains one of my favourite anime to this day. Tbh I’ve not seen death note so I’m not sure how similar they are, but there’s also elements of crime, mystery and thriller, and it’s a very good watch. If you liked death note, I would say definitely give Erased a shot!
Also I know it’s not really a “beginner anime” but honestly, If you can stick it out for 900+ episodes then please watch one piece! Seriously the most phenomenal, stunning adventure series packed with thrilling action scenes and heart wrenching moments. The greatest world building, storytelling and characters I’ve ever seen. It’s number one for a good reason. I’ve literally never cried so much before watching a series and I actually usually detest action. But to be fair I read the manga LOL. I know it took some people years to catch up with the anime so if you can, the manga is probably a better way to consume it. It’s a little childish to begin with but later it becomes one of the best and most fleshed out stories ever. Sorry I rambled there, but please, consider watching some of these anime!
