1. The Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai)

The Seven Deadly Sins

The Holy Knights and their activities contradicted the name of their group. How can they have such a name when all they know how to do are evil acts? Well, the same also occurs with the Seven Deadly Sins, another group of good people. We are all aware that everyone has good and bad aspects, so we don’t take sides yet.

The Seven Deadly Sins is a criminal group, and at this point, this group is the community’s only hope. This is because the Holy Knights are very corrupt, and all they care about is power and their glory, nothing else apart from that. Elizabeth, the princess herself, started the idea of bringing in The Seven Deadly Sins.

She strongly believed that only that criminal group could help them dethrone the Holy Knights as corruption was increasing daily. Do you think she will be able to find these criminals after the rumours of them stopped operating? Well, I can’t tell you everything.

2. Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin)

Attack on Titan

This series is more centred on Eren Yeager, who swore to take revenge on Titans to make up for his mother’s death. He saw his mother being eaten by a Titan after they had come into the human world after a certain colossal giant broke the wall. Since the moment the Titans came into the picture, humanity is on the verge of finishing.

This is all because humans now seem powerless since the Titans are smarter. The worst part about these Titans is that they are eating humans alive. Now, in order for Eren Yeager to fulfil his desire, he had to join the Scout Regiment. The environment is not predictable because anyone can die at any time.

Things have become more tense with the coming of the Titans, causing chaos all over. Instead of humanity dealing with that colossal giant alone, now they also have to deal with the Titans. Do you think things are going to get better anytime soon?

3. Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo Ghoul

This one can’t be left out when we talk about dark fantasy anime series. It is derived from a manga with the same name, “Tokyo Ghoul”.

Kanei later meets a girl named Rize, who is also into books. These two started getting along and went out on a date when Rize attacked Kanei and almost got killed. This is when Rize reveals that she is not a human but a ghoul and that to survive, she has to eat humans.

4. Future Diary (Mirai Nikki)

Future Diary

In this series, it is revealed that only the fittest can survive in the jungle. Every character in this had to eliminate and kill a certain character to achieve their personal goals. This all shifts our focus to Yukiteru Amano, a shy high school student. He spends most of his time in his phone diary to make up for his shyness.

He doesn’t have anyone; he only has an imaginary friend, Deus. Later on, his diary started showing him things in the future, and that’s when he learnt that Deus was a God of time and space. He also learned he needed a successor because he would die soon. This is where Yukiteru teamed up with Yuno Gasai and joined this death match.

5. Black Lagoon

Black Lagoon

This one is more like the same with Akame ga Kill. We all believe that being kidnapped and held captive is a nightmare, but what made Okajima join his kidnappers? Well, he has a normal business, and he was held captive by the Black Lagoon for negotiations.

The Black Lagoon is a group of people paid to do illegal work. During Okajima’s captivity, he started bonding with the Black Lagoon members. After the Black Lagoon had then released him, he got to know that his company had presumed him dead and had cut him off. This is when he then decided to join his abductors.

There are some outbreaks that we all can say we can manage, or it’s not a big deal, but a vampire outbreak is something else. In this series, a boy named Yuichiro Hyakuya is one of the survivors left among the living. He survived because he was one of the children under 13 and the only one spared.

Yuichiro was fortunate to escape being taken as a subject and had to join the Moon Demon Company. This is where he managed to find out about the virus outbreak. The company operates to fight the vampires and win back their world of humanity.

9. Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online

Imagine being trapped in a game, and you can’t log out unless you complete the game. It’s an amazing series, as the setting consists of an upgraded and unwell-developed gaming world. Kazuto Kirigaya, aka Kirito, the well-known gamer, also got trapped.

The Misfit Of Demon King Academy

Imagine bearing a title everyone fears, and suddenly, it all fades after giving it up for the better good. Anos Voldigoad was once a feared and respected King, and for what he did, he gained more respect. He had to make himself an offering to preserve and keep peace between humans and demons.

After two thousand years, he then reincarnated and tried to claim his title, but it wasn’t as easy as he had thought. Anos had to join the Demon King Academy to reclaim his title, but the hierarchy of the Academy was corrupt.

This title is also the name of the subject matter of this series. He is known as the Goblin Slayer because of his reputation for killing goblins. This series is the best for those who are into adventures because the whole series is an adventure.

Deadman Wonderland

Some accusations are too serious for a student to be accused of. Well, Ganta Igarashi was framed for deliberately and brutally killing his colleagues. This resulted in him locked in a prison where he had to fight for his own life. What happened in this series is not a kid’s game because Ganta is in a complicated environment where no one wanna be.

I wonder if Griffith’s obsession with power was normal at some point. Guts never said or showed any interest in becoming the leader of the Band of the Hawk, so why was he freaking out. He feared that with the power and abilities that Guts possesses, he was gonna be dethroned.

Now, he had to do something evil to Guts, and now, Guts has the responsibility and liability to take care of his loved ones. He has to protect them against Griffith’s conspiracy and evil forces.

17. Code: Breaker

Code_ Breaker

I honestly don’t know how to explain how justice is met in this series. The Code: Breakers are a certain group of people who seek justice for everyone and cannot rest until justice is served. For this organization, it’s a tit-for-tat. They don’t smile for evil or justify any evil acts, no.

When Sakura Sakurakoujo saw Rei Ogami burning some people to death using his abilities, she got confused momentarily. The reason why she got confused is because Rei Ogami belongs to the Code Breakers group. She later learned that he was one of the members of the Code Breakers who eliminated evil through evil acts.

In her quest to change Rei Ogami, things do not go as planned because she is convinced. So, will she even consider it a bad thing, eradicating evil by doing evil? Well, I doubt that. What do you think?

18.Garo: Honoo no Kokuin

Garo_ Honoo no Kokuin

Like Akame ga Kill, a minister takes over the kingdom in this series, and whoever appears to be a threat is eliminated. Those seen to have the potential to resist the minister’s rule are also being eliminated.

Is there any hope remaining for this kingdom? This guy is extremely smart; imagine that after poisoning the king, he misled the kingdom concerning some knights and priests. The reason behind this is that these people won’t back him for the corruption that is taking place in the kingdom.

A certain shocking event took place as one of the Makai priests was burnt to death after being framed for being a witch. A baby was born from that pyre, and a Gold Knight was the one to save it. Later, after some years, there is the search for this child to get the throne he rightfully deserves. Do you think they are going to find him anytime soon?
