Tomorrow is National Anime Day! I know I’m a day early, but I don’t usually post on Thursdays. Please forgive me and accept my humble offering of my top 8 anime suggestions for beginners. These anime are typical Shoujo and Shounen picks, but don’t let those words intimidate you. Shoujo typically targets a feminine audience with a focus on romance, relationships, and emotions. Shounen typically targets a masculine audience with a focus on action and male protagonists. Despite the target audiences of these two genres, anyone can enjoy either or both. My husband and I are both the latter!
I ask that as you try out these anime on my list or any other anime that you give each one a fair chance, especially if anime is out of your comfort zone. It might be a bit strange or weird at first if you aren’t used to trope characters or reading subtitles or watching “adult” animation, but promise you’ll stick with it for a few episodes to see how you like it. I have varying picks here for those who love romantic comedies, action, superheroes, and even horror. I tried to touch as many genres as I could within my own favorite anime to give you a genuine list to start with. Hopefully you’ll find your gateway anime and become a part of our wonderful community! Now… Let’s get to this list!

If you’ve lurked around on my blog long enough, you’ll know I’m not a huge fan of gore unless it’s Walking Dead (and I think I’ve just been desensitized to it to be honest). If I told you I enjoyed watching Castlevania… you’re probably scratching your head right about now. But let me tell you why someone who turns away at animated blood and hides when a body get sliced in half actually loves this video game adaptation so much.

Enter the world of Animal Crossing. Make friends with the animals, fish to your heart’s content, find every fossil to be displayed at the museum, decorate your house over and over again… You can totally ignore all responsibilities (like paying back loans) and do other things in the game if you just don’t feel like dealing with the stresses of the “main” story line. — A Geeky Gal, VGC Day 2: What game can you ignore the story and just “live” in the world? (2018)

I’m also hoping to watch more romantic comedies in 2020 so please let me know what you think I should watch! I’ve added several of your recommendations from Twitter to my anime list if you’d like to check it out!
