Anime has grown has had an insane amount of growth all over the world, especially within the States with large mainstream appeal. There are plenty of people wondering where to start in the world of anime. I am going to give you some solid Starter animes that even people that dislike the animation can’t openly deny is good.

5. Death note
This show made me an anime fan and if you still haven’t seen this one yet GO SEE IT NOW!! The story follows Light Yagami, a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook from a Shinigami named Ryuk that grants its user the ability to kill anyone whose name and face he knows. The series centers around Light trying to cleanse the world of evil and to become the new God of the world while L tries to stop him. This show starts to blur the lines between right and wrong, good and evil.

4. Code Geass
The series focuses on how the former prince Lelouch vi Britannia obtains a power known as Geass and makes it his business to go up against the Holy Britannian Empire, an imperial monarchy and a superpower that has conquered various contries in the world.

3. Steins Gate
“No one knows what the future holds. That’s why its potential is infinite.”
Okabe Rintarou
The story revolves around the antics of Rintarou Okabe, a self-proclaimed mad scientist that goes by the alias “Hououin Kyouma,” he screws with time and ends up having to deal with his actions.  Time travel is definitely a difficult subject to make not go horribly wrong but For Steins;Gate, that hard work paid off.Steins gate definitely does this better than many of the anime out there I have ever seen and you are doing yourself an injustice if you do not pick this up.

2. Fullmetal Alchemist
Fullmetal Alchemist is the story of Ed and Al, two brothers in pursuit of a philosopher’s stone that’s key to resurrecting their mother and repairing their own disfigured bodies.

1. Cowboy Bebop
Honestly, if you didn’t think that this would be on THIS countdown, then you are REALLY new to anime. Cowboy Bebop has something for nearly every person. It can be serious. It can be funny. It has style and action and one of the best soundtracks of any television series ever. No wonder this is one of the most replayed anime
