Demon Slayer was serialized in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump from February 2016 to May 2020, with its chapters collected in twenty-three volumes.
The best way to watch Demon Slayer is on Crunchyroll. The movie Demon Slayer-Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train is by far, one of the best new anime on Funimation to be ever released.
Directed by Sunghoo Park, Jujutsu Kaisen is definitely a good new anime to watch. It combines interesting fights, supernatural powers, captivating characters and a lot of humor. All the ingredients to please the public loving fighting anime.
Yuji Itadori is a member of his high school spiritism club. During one of their missions, they unearth a relic of a super-powerful creature, one of its fingers that attracts a lot of monsters. Thinking it was a good idea, Yuji swallows this finger to ward off the evil spell.
Unfortunately, he finds himself possessed by this creature who is none other than Ryomen Sokuna, the powerful and undisputed king of plagues.
Surprisingly, Yuji manages to regain possession of his body but the exorcist organization wants to put him to death because he is now considered a dangerous plague.
To be spared from this sentence, Yuji starts learning the occult art and exorcism in order to find and ingest all of Sokuna’s fingers and eliminate the threat once and for all.
Jujutsu Kaisen won the title of Anime of the Year at the Anime Awards 2021 on February 20, 2021. The manga Jujutsu Kaisen 0 was adapted into an anime movie in December 2021. A second season is planned for February 2023.
Sports anime fans, this is surely the best soccer manga and anime to read/watch right now. Ao Ashi is a football educational anime which tells the story of young Ashito Aoi in his third year of high school in the town of Ehime and his meeting with the football coach Tatsuya Fukuda.
Ashito, although talented, suffers from an overly upright and impulsive character, but Fukuda believes in him and invites him to join his own team. How will the destiny of this boy who will revolutionize Japanese football evolve?
Ao Ashi delivers the sporting realism that appeals to soccer fans. Perhaps the biggest challenge is whether the series can develop the rest of the cast to match Ashito’s energy.
If the rest of the team is left in Ashito’s shadow, the series will lose its shine and may no longer be recognised as a top anime to watch right now.
