I decided to cover a popular anime, My Hero Academia, which is a shonen anime. Shonen anime refers to young boys under the age of fifteen. Thus, shonen anime and manga are aimed at that demographic. A lot of these anime and manga have a young male hero and are focused on action, adventure, and fighting. My Hero Academia follows this archetype by exploring Izuku “Deku” Midoriya quest to become a hero.
Every kid that grew up in the 1990s holds some nostalgia for the things they loved during that time. For me it was Saturday morning cartoons. I had just gotten into anime after watching sailor Moon and was intrigued by the idea behind Pokémon. Pokémon featured portal pocket monsters that a trainer could hunt and collect to battle against Pokémon. The series is still running strong with new characters, songs, and challenges for the characters to endure.
There are various types of anime in ant genre making it easy to find one to suit any palate. Even with fantasy and paranormal all sub-genres are covered to suit any gender or age group.

Due to the insane amount of anime viewers often watch a few episodes of the anime before moving on thinking that they will return to the series and complete it at a later date.

Being an avid anime fan, many anime viewers are familiar with the historical classics such as Sailor Moon, Gundam Wing, Full Metal Alchemist, Dragonball Z, and Pokemon. I decided to review Angels of Death to offer readers an anime that isn’t well-known. I wanted to suggest an anime that is both fantasy and paranormal.
During the 1990s the Disney Channel was known for creating family-oriented cartoons that created a mix of action with core family values. One show was a play on the old spy films called Kim Possible. The show focuses on a teenage cheerleader that went on secret missions to save the world.
There are many who believe in the humanization of Death and that his task is to collect the souls that have gone astray. There are many myths surrounding the personification of death and the creation of his famous scythe. Funimation created the animated show Soul Eater to give an explanation on how the weapons used by Death were created.
One of the classic animes that focuses on brotherly love and their journey to discover a legendary treasure, The Philosopher’s Stone, is Full Metal Alchemist. The Elric brothers push the boundaries of science and magic by using alchemy, hoping to defy the governing law of equivalent exchange with The Philosophers Stone.
Luna introduced me to the comedic anime, Trigun, after she heard how much I appreciate action, developed characters, and humor in anime like Full Metal Jacket, she had me watch a few episodes of Trigun, and I became addicted to the show amused by how despite Vash hated violence yet was known as a deadly gunslinger. The anime was adapted from the manga of the same name, written and illustrated by Yasuhiro Nightow.
