A few years ago you could almost count the anime that we had available for streaming on the fingers of one hand, and now each platform has a full catalog of series and movies that continues to grow every month. Although if we talk about anime, the platform par excellence so far is Crunchyroll, which has grown even more after its merger with Funimation.
On the platform we can see all kinds of series, from sports animes, romantic comedies, trips to fantastic worlds, resounding dramas… And yes, we also have access to some of the best anime series that we have thrown at our faces on the last years.
‘Shingeki no Kyojin’
‘Attack on Titan‘ (‘Shingeki no Kyojin’) is one of the queens of mambo if we talk about anime, and has already fascinated millions and millions of viewers. Based on the manga by Hajime Isayama, the story takes place in a world where the last humans have taken refuge inside some high walls, since the terrible Titans live beyond.
When Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman and Armin Arlet lose everything after these creatures attack, they decide to join the country’s military force to fight them.
‘Kimetsu no Yaiba’
The madness of ‘Night Watch’ (‘Kimetsu no Yaiba’) also hit theaters and the franchise can boast of having the highest grossing anime film in history.
The story centers on Tanjiro Kamado, who loses his family after being attacked by a demon. Only his sister Nezuko survives , who has been infected and turned into a demon. In order to find a cure and take revenge on the man who ruined their lives, Tanjiro decides to become a demon hunter.
Another of the biggest series of recent years, and which has also had a spectacular career in theaters. ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ is the story of Yuji Itadori, a teenager who accidentally eats an ancient relic that turns out to be the finger of the legendary sorcerer Sukuna.
In order to contain Sukuna inside her and learn to master her powers, she goes to the Tokyo School of Wizardry, which specializes in training sorcerers to fight against curses and all kinds of creatures.
‘Spy x Family’
One of the stars of 2022 thanks to its great mix of humor and action. ‘Spy x Family’ follows a very peculiar family where everyone has a secret. The father disguises himself as Loid Forger, but is actually Twilight, the star spy for a rival nation.
The mother, Yor Briar, seems like a simple civil servant but she is also a ferocious and bloodthirsty assassin for hire. Little Anya is a telepath resulting from a mysterious scientific experiment, and the only one who knows her parents’ secrets.
‘JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’
This peculiar manga saga has been developing for decades, with each new arc focusing on a different generation of the same family. ‘JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’ opens as a 19th century Victorian drama with Jonathan Joestar, whose adoptive brother Dio Brando is turned into a vampire after using an ancient artifact.
Through each member of the Joestar family, generational conflicts often end up leading to DIO, either with an epic journey around the world or delving into the ins and outs of the Neapolitan mafia.
Undoubtedly the big star of the fall season and one of the most anticipated bombings in 2022. ‘Chainsaw Man’ was preceded by all the hype surrounding Tatsuki Fujimoto ‘s manga and has left us with superb animation.
Denji is a teenager with a miserable life who lives with his demon Pochita, scraping by as he can and doing all kinds of jobs to pay off his debts. When Denji is killed, he manages to make a deal with a demon and is reborn as Chainsaw Man, whereupon he is recruited to become a professional demon hunter.
Mob Psycho 100
It was preceded by the success of ‘One-Punch Man’, but ONE ‘s other work does not fall short at all. ‘Mob Psycho 100’ is a perfect combination of slice of life, supernatural plots and surreal humor, and excellent animation.
The story follows Shigeo Kageyama, nicknamed “Mob“, who is actually an extremely powerful psychic who has trouble expressing his feelings and relating to others. To control his powers, he turns to Reigen Arataka, a con man who poses as a spiritualist and uses Mob to solve the little jobs that come his way.
‘Ranking of Kings’
‘Ranking of Kings’ is another of the recent bombings, with a charming mix between a fantasy story, very tender moments, heartbreaking drama and beautiful animation reminiscent of classic Ghibli.
Prince Bojji is deaf and mute, so hardly anyone considers him heir to the throne and people often take him for a fool. One day he meets Kage, the sole survivor of a disgraced clan of assassins who becomes his first and only anime.
The undisputed queen of current anime, which has been on the air since 1999 and continues to grow with a new weekly chapter. ‘One Piece’ is the story of Monkey D. Luffy, who ate the Gomu Gomu no Mi and is now a rubber man.
Luffy dreams of becoming the King of the Pirates and finding the mythical One Piece, so he goes to sea and gathers a crew with which to travel the world.
