If you’re looking for the perfect entry point into The Great Debate—which, naturally, centers on which anime is the best—Otaku USA’s The Very Best Anime Guide has you covered. We put the guide together as a free bonus for signing up to our (also free!) newsletter, giving us the perfect opportunity to rally our contributors together and name our top anime picks.
Though you’ll immediately recognize most of the heavy-hitters on the guide’s cover—which includes the likes of Akira, Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, Dragon Ball Z, Hunter x Hunter, One Piece, and more; all of which are featured within—variety is the spice of life. Thus, there’s no shortage of anime series and movies that you might otherwise have missed out on, including some classics that easily slip under the radars of newer fans.
So go ahead and visit The Very Best Anime Guide‘s page and give it a spin. Signing up for the download will also net you a free subscription to our newsletter, which delivers news, reviews, and more from our editors in Japan. The best part? You get it first! Consider it a friendly heads up to keep you going throughout the week. And while you’re at it, be sure to come back here and chime in on YOUR favorite anime once you’ve explored our guide!
