The Promised Neverland
One of the best anime of 2019, The Promised Neverland tells the story of children living in an orphanage named Grace Field. The little ones live in him until he is 12 years old, under the care of a nanny (“Mama”). After this age, they live with their foster parents.
However, what viewers could not imagine is that, in reality, all those children are raised to feed demons who live outside the high walls that separate Grace Field from the rest of the world. Three very intelligent children are responsible for discovering this secret and preventing everyone from escaping before they see their next meal.
Kaguya-Sama: Love is War
Another member of the best anime list of 2019, Kaguya-Sama tells the story of two young men who fall madly in love, but can never declare themselves to each other, as doing so means that they will lose an important power struggle in the couple. Thus, both begin to do everything so that the other finally admits to being in love. If you’re the type of viewer who likes content about conflict between couples or romantic comedies, you’ll probably like this anime.
My Roommate is a Cat
The name itself is compelling enough to make it into the best anime list of 2019. My Roommate is a Cat tells the story of Subaru Mikazuki, a writer with difficulty socializing. His story begins to change when he adopts kitten Haru, who inspires him and helps open up to the world.
Mob Psycho 100 II
This sequel to Mob Psycho tells the story of Mob, a student who is able to utilize truly exceptional psychic powers, which emerge even more depending on his emotional state. However, all he wants is to grow up as a normal person without his powers interfering with his life, which unfortunately is not possible since one of the most powerful psychics in the world, with the help of his henchmen, wants test your power, which can damage the city in which Mob lives.
This other member of the 2019 best anime list tells the story of a Japanese lord who sold his son while his wife was still pregnant to 12 demons in a kind of pact to prosper on their land. Because of this, the boy Hyakkimaru is born without arms, legs, eyes, ears or skin, but still alive and later acquires prosthetics for his limbs, allowing him to embark on an adventure to find the demons, kill them and recover all that was lost due to the pact made by his father.
If you’re the type who likes a good deal of adventure and suspense, you’re sure to enjoy this anime.
The Rising of the Shield Hero
The popular plot of a hero fighting the odds that stand in his way could not miss this list of best anime of 2019, right? The Rising of the Shield Hero tells the story of Iwatani Naofumi, chosen to join the team of four heroes responsible for legendary weapons. The bad part of this story comes from the fact that Iwatani was chosen to be the hero of the shield, which prevents him from fighting alone, since holding the shield prevents him from wielding other weapons.
Given the difficulties faced by the hero of the shield, there is a certain prejudice between society and those chosen for this role. Therefore, Naofumi must bear the burden of protecting a society that despises him.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Although released in 2009, this second version of Fullmetal Alchemist continues to be widely acclaimed, making it a strong contender for the best anime list.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood tells the story of two brothers (Edward and Alphonse) who tried to alter the past to bring a loved one back and failed, which almost cost their own lives. After this event, they will try their best to recover what was lost during the attempt.
Edward and Alphonse live in Amestris, a continent that lives under constant wars and where people can do alchemy (which in itself makes the anime very interesting). The brothers seek the philosopher’s stone, capable of increasing the powers of anyone who has it, and face high adventures during this quest.
Of course, one of the most famous titles in otaku culture could not fail to join our list of best anime of 2019, although it has been released for quite some time, simply because of its relevance.
Death Note tells the story of Light, a young man who eventually finds a black cover notebook. Thinking it is a joke, Light finds that by writing someone’s name in the notebook, the person actually dies.
Although at first the discovery of the book startled Light, the young man later saw it as a good tool to take the lives of every criminal in the world.
After a while, Light finds a Shinigami (a kind of god of death) who owns the notebook and is happy to find out how it is being used. Who is not happy (as expected) with the deaths is the police, who do everything to find out who is the author behind them and assembles a great investigative team.
If you’re the type who enjoys crime stories with a supernatural mix and hasn’t watched Death Note yet, it’s worth a try!
