When you’re browsing anime at a mall, you can’t help but notice the massive posters that advertise popular series like Attack on Titan and the upcoming Bleach.
While it’s always nice to see the newest anime releases at the showrooms, the vast majority of the time the anime that’s in there is a bit boring and unexciting.
This is especially true when it comes to the anime adaptations of famous movies and TV shows.
In fact, many of these anime are almost totally bland.
They don’t really capture the spirit of the original.
But there are a few good anime out there that can.
Here’s a list of some of the most popular manga and anime adaptations out there.
To find the best anime at the moment, you’ll want to visit these locations and see what you can get.
Read on for the 10 most popular series.
Attack on Titans The original anime of Attack on Tatsumaki is the most widely-distributed anime in the world.
It has become a huge hit, with over 100 million viewers on Crunchyroll.
Even though it’s the most highly-viewed anime in Japan, it’s one of the more forgettable titles in the anime world.
The story follows Tatsumi and his childhood friend Shirogane, who find themselves stranded on a remote island.
Tatsu and Shiro are raised by the villagers in an orphanage, and Shizuka is their only friend.
Shiro has been adopted by a man named Kintoki.
Kintokie has an obsessive-compulsive disorder, which causes him to compulsively collect and search for objects and people, which makes him a perfect target for Tatsui.
It’s up to Shiro to get Tatsuma out of his head, as he needs his help to escape the island.
It is one of my favorite anime of all time.
It was also adapted into a sequel, and I highly recommend that you check it out if you haven’t.

Attack On Titans 2 (2017) If you’ve watched the original Attack on Touches, you might not even recognize the name.
The second installment is a far cry from the first.
While the plot was basically the same, the action scenes were vastly different.
Instead of relying on CGI and a CGI-heavy, realistic world, Attack on Toros uses a more realistic and realistic-looking setting, with all of the action taking place on a giant island.
This setting, combined with the fact that it takes place in an alternate history of the 20th century, gives the story an added depth.
If you want to check out the original anime, you may be interested in the sequel, Attack On Toros 2: The War Begins.

The World God Only Knows (2003) The World Gods’ second installment was released in 2003, but it’s still considered the definitive sequel to Attack on Catastrophe.
The premise is the same as in the first one, but the series focuses on an ancient evil that’s controlling humanity.
It also takes place on an alternate timeline, where humanity is enslaved and enslaved to the World Gods.
The main difference is that the World God is no longer the main antagonist.
Instead, the protagonist is a human named Kyouko who finds a magical weapon that’s capable of controlling the world and is in desperate need of help.
This sequel has some of my all-time favorite episodes, which you can read about here.
The Legend of Korra This one’s a bit of a wildcard, since the show itself is set in a different time.
The plot involves Korra and her father Anba, who’s trying to prevent his granddaughter from inheriting his land.
It revolves around a man known as “The Great Architect”, who has been creating a new kingdom on the planet of Airbent.
The show is very much influenced by the Legend of Zelda series, but focuses more on the plot instead of the graphics.
There are some interesting side characters like the Fire Nation leader Anzin, who has his own story to tell.

Naruto The series started as an anime and manga adaptation, but ended up being an anime as well.
Naruto was one of anime’s first and best-known anime adaptations, with it winning the hearts of fans worldwide and spawning two spin-offs, both of which are now well-known and popular.
The series is still in high demand and fans can still get their hands on an original copy of the show.

Bleach The anime adaptation of Bleach has received a lot of critical praise.
The original manga has been adapted into two more series, and while the manga adaptation is more focused on the world of the anime, the anime series focuses a lot more on Kishimoto’s character designs and the story itself.
The two series are not identical
