Here are 5 of the top recommended anime series to add to your watch list.
1. Demon Slayer - Kimetsu no Yaiba
Demon Slayer, based on the manga, is a classic supernatural meets martial arts fantasy tale. It follows Tanjiro Kamado, a young boy on a mission to avenge the death of his family and find a cure for his sister who is the sole survivor (but was then turned into a demon). Why do we love Demon Slayer? The story shows Tanjiro’s unwavering commitment to save his last remaining family member, no matter what hardships he has to face - including training in martial arts to be able to one day defeat the immortal master demon who attacked his family.
