5 anime shows to start watching ASAP
With the help of social media, watching anime is becoming a trend, but you’re probably thinking: where do I begin?
Don’t sweat it, we have created a list of the easiest teen girl animes to start bingeing on either Netflix or Crunchyroll, ranging from powerful magical girls to heartfelt slice-of-life tales.
Fruits Basket follows Tohru Honda: A friendly, orphan girl who meets the mysterious Soma family. The family is under a Chinese Zodiac curse that transforms members into different Zodiac animals. Tohru learns more about herself as she helps members of the Soma family deal with their curse.
Fighting evil by moonlight, winning love by daylight, Sailor Moon is the most *iconic* magical girl anime and is a must-watch. Usagi Tsukino is an average, clumsy school girl, but she soon discovers she is the lost princess of the Moon Kingdom and is the protector of the Solar System alongside her teammates: The Sailor Scouts!
This series follows Kagome Higurashi, a 15-year-old from modern-day Tokyo who falls into a well that transports her to the Sengoku period (a civil war period) and meets a half-human, half-demon Inuyasha. Together they try to find fragments of the sacred Shikon Jewel that has shattered across Old Japan.
If you’re looking for something more sporty, check out Haikyuu!!, a volleyball comedy about Shoyo Hinata, who tries his hardest to be the best volleyball player regardless of his short height.
Amu Hinamori pretends to act cool and stand-offish, but on the inside, she struggles to find out who she is. One day she prays for guidance and wakes up to find three eggs of her Guardian Characters: Ran, Miki and Su. The three guardian characters bring out different sides of her personality and help her transform to save the day.
