Anime List (A-Z) Challenge

Thanks to Eggsandwich04 for nominating me for this fun challenge. I am highly obliged! Don’t forget to check out his website, he has some amazing content worth your reading time. Let us start the challenge right away, however first let us look at the rules of the anime list a to z challenge.

You can check out my other anime lists section where I have ranked anime characters of various animes as well. Don’t forget to check it out. However if you are too busy to read further, I have compiled all the anime shows lists a to z which I have seen here.

RULES

  • Pick a favorite series/movie for each letter of the alphabet. For titles starting with “a” “an” or “the” use the first letter of the next word of the title.
  • Since many titles have multiple names based on the language that you are using please pick one language for the entire list (Use all English titles or all Japanese titles) and let the readers know which language you will be using. If a title has the same name regardless of the language then it can be used in any list.
  • If you don’t have a title that fits under a particular letter, you can name another favorite from a different letter in it’s place, just indicate which letter spot you are using for that series. This can be done up to three times. If you can’t fill a spot then you can leave it blank. No more than 26 total series are allowed.
  • Including a picture for each series is encouraged.
  • Share who tagged you for this challenge and nominate 3 more to try it themselves and include links to their blogs.
  • Just have fun with this challenge. I wanted to get everyone to share some favorite series and to spread the word about awesome blogs!

Well this was hard for me, since I am extremely new to anime (even though I have been watching them since the past 2 years) and also I am a very slow at finishing them.

Below is the desired list of anime titles with respect to their starting alphabet. I have decided to use Japanese for the title names. Hope you enjoy reading the list.

Note: I have skipped the alphabets for which I have not seen any anime (I do have some animes in my mind but I have not completed them from start till the end so I cannot really score them just because I watched a few episodes of them). However, I have mentioned the animes below in an orderly way.

(A) Attack on Titan

(B) Boku No Hero Academia

Boku No Hero Academia, or My Hero Academia is a beautiful Shonen Animes focused on the concept of superpowers or ‘quirks’. Midoriya, unlike the rest of the 80% of the population, is quirkless. Still he has a great desire of being able to save people as a hero. Inspired from the No. 1 Pro Hero All Might, he undergoes a lot of training & stress to compete in the U. A. Entrance Examination to get admission in the most popular school for young budding heroes.

Sports can be fun, especially when it has a catchy story and a bunch of intriguing characters. Haikyuu is very well known for it’s awesome story and character development, along with fluid animations. Haikyuu is an anime focused on the game of volleyball, where the most important thing is to connect the ball and avoid it touch the ground at all costs. The story follows the journey of Hinata Shoyo, who is crazy for volleyball. He looks upto his idol ‘The Little Giant’ and wishes to become a great volleyball player and aims for the top.

Jujutsu Kaisen is an adaptation of it’s manga, and belongs to the shounen category where Itadori Yuuji, our protagonist, wants to die a proper death. A world, where curses feed upon the negative emotions of the people, now Itadori himself has somehow possessed a deadly special grade curse, following with the re-incarnation of Sukuna, the four-handed, twenty-fingered beast/curse. Itadori now has only two options, either he dies straightaway as the sorceres exorcise him or he helps the Jujutsu Sorcerers to find the remaining fingers of Sukuna in order to exorcise him, again at the cost of his life.

But the flip side is that she has become a Demon, thirsty for blood.

He goes into the search, whilst fighting the other Demons after joining the Demon Slayer Corps.

Time travel is a very broad term, however Steins;Gate successfully nails it. The story is about a mad scientist named ‘Okabe’ who tries to create a time machine from microwave oven. He starts with sending messages called D-mails to the past which causes a change in the present as world lines get shifted. However, this causes him to get stuck into a deadly cycle, where he is unable to save someone from dying. The anime shows how meddling with time can produce so many complications.
