So without any further delay let’s get started;

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!

Cowboy Bebop

Why? Cause it’s a classic, especially for fans of westerns. It’s the most well-known anime and an anime fan should definitely watch. Every episode is different and episodes can be watched in any order and still understood. Yes, it is that amazing. Following the story of the ups and downs of bounty hunters in space.

Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou)

It’s an anime that I think was great that subtly showed the line between talent, hard work and maturing. It is an amazing anime with loveable characters with relatable problems we can all empathize with. It was one of those animes I couldn’t stop watching and it was has such an amazing plot, art style and sound tracks.


The chemistry between our two characters is just electric, you just can’t help falling in love with this anime. The show is a bit addictive and you might find yourself watching the whole season in one sit down. It’s an anime for everyone even if you are not a romantic.

So that’s my list for this prompt thank you for stopping by and till next time, have a wonderful day, noon and evening.

  1. Ironically, Cowboy Bebop was hard for me to get into, even as a westerner. I started with Inuyasha and kept going from there!

    Nice list, but I would definitely include Lucky Star!

  3. I agree that Cowboy Bebop is a good beginner anime. Not only is it excellent, but it isn’t too different in tone to some shows that Westerners are familiar with.

    • Yeah I found out a lot of people I recommend it to find it easy to watch. Everyone who has watched it loves how it has that air of mystery to it without really trying, you just want to understand all the amazing characters.

  4. My sister loved the Kawaii Complex series—perhaps I should give it a try!
