O’ supernatural genre, it seems I can never escape from you. You are the foundation of most of the animes out there. It’s like peanut butter and jelly, they do go hand in hand.
If I think of all of my favorite animes most are in a supernatural setting. Take for example Servamp.
Mahiru Shirota is a simple person who likes simple things. When he picks up a stray cat, a contract between the two is formed and Mahiru gets dragged into a war between the seven deadly Servamp and their eighth sibling Tsubaki. Now his life has become anything but simple.
If that sounds good to you that’s because it is good. It’s worth your time. And while I’m at it here are 8 Anime Like Servamp that are also worth your time to watch.
Now, what if I told you there was a version of Poke’mon, where instead of cute animals fighting each other, it were people with swords and magical powers.
One night, a young man named Shirou encounters two superhumans fighting against one another. One of them spots him and chase after Shirou. He tries to escape but in the end, is cornered.
Shirou, using his magical abilities, is able to summon a knight known as a Servant. Now they must fight others in the Fifth Holy Grail War.
Swords, magical powers, and action, all rolled into one is just one big sandwich of awesome.
A very different kind of zombie show.
Michiru Kita has the ability to know when people will die, because she sees rings on top of people’s heads. The darker the rings get the closer they are to death. She sees dark rings on two of her classmates but found out that they’ve been dead for a while. They have a contract to keep them alive but must kill other zombies to continue living.
This anime has a thick plot, good art, interesting characters and awesome music. Why couldn’t this anime last forever? If you can’t tell, it’s a must watch.
This is kind of like American Horror Story: Freakshow if it took acid, and had Japanese people with superpowers, and was very colorful.
Nai and Garek are on the run from a ghoulish monster. They are saved by “Circus,” a government defense agency that deals with criminal activity too difficult for the police. They join the Circus and fight other monsters, all the while uncovering a secret mischievous organization.
If Hayao Miyazaki directed an anime series, it would be Karneval. I highly recommend it.
The world’s most well known anime that everyone has heard of.
Seras Victoria was a police girl, who has now become a vampire, thanks to her new master Alucard. Now she works for Integra, as they battle the evilest vampires.
Simply put: You must watch this series if you haven’t yet. And if you have, then watch it again.
Owari no Seraph: Nagoya Kessen-hen (Seraph of the End: Battle in Nagoya)
Yuuichirou Hyakuya reunites with his best friend, Mikaela Hyakuya, that becomes bittersweet when he finds out that he is a vampire. Yuuichirou vows to save his friend by killing the vampire that turned his friend into one of the creatures of the night.
The best way to explain this anime is like if you’re having sex, it was quick but holy moly it was so gosh darn good.
Kamisama no Memochou (Heaven’s Memo Pad)
Narumi Fujishima’s life is about to change when he meets a girl named Alice. At first, she seems normal but reclusive, but she is actually a hacker and a private detective. Now he is drafted in her elite team to catch some bad guys.
This is a way more awesome version of the Mentalist. If you really enjoy detective series then this show is for you.
Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)
Young Ciel Phantomhive has to take care of some very unsettling events in Victorian England for Her Majesty. With the help of his loyal butler Sebastian Michaelis, they do whatever necessary to finish the job.
This is one unnerving anime to sit through. The mystery is just to die for, combine that with great animation, characters, and writing, and you have yourself one of the best anime to watch.
Ao no Exorcist (Blue Exorcist)
Rin Okumura seems to be your typical and somewhat troublesome teenager, until one day all that changed. He was ambushed by demons and got his world turned upside down when he found out that he is the son of Satan himself. Satan wants Rin to come back to the demon world so they rule earth together.
Not wanting to go back, Rin trains to become an Exorcist to fight off demons and defend the human world.
If you want a classic shounen, which will cause you to scream “OH MY GOSH!” with wonderful art, marvelous sound and darn good action happening non-stop, then you may find this anime is for you.
