Recommended Animes for beginners

Inasmuch as we love phones on this blog, we also love movies and general entertainment. In today’s posts we’re going to be looking at some recommended animes for beginners.

One area that we’ve not looked at is Anime. All through the early years of my life I have seen several animations (or cartoons) from several companies that were popular back then and still are till today.

My earliest animations were from entertainment giants like Disney, Metro Goldwyn-Mayer, Nickelodeon etc.

I would say the one I enjoyed most while growing up as child to when I became an adult was Tom and Jerry (Fred Quimby’s version) because it had all the action, slapstick comedy, and unrealistic stuff that defied the laws of nature and physics.

Japanese Anime

In those early years, one cartoon which was very popular back then, was Samurai X.

Although back then, everyone around including me thought it was just a regular cartoon because we were oblivious of the Japanese style of animation which I later came to know as anime. 

This concept is now a part of my favorite style of cartoons. This became very apparent when I got introduced to NARUTO wI would say it was definitely worth it. This is because it sampled elements of multiple genres from comedy, action and supernatural which I very much enjoyed due to the awkwardness and illustrations of the characters.

Now, since then I have watched a lot of anime which I would say are really interesting.

Choosing an anime series

Just like I was clueless about anime until I was introduced to a particular series which skyrocketed my interest in the Japanese art and other anime, I understand that it wouldn’t be easy for you as to just suddenly pick one of these anime to start watching.

This is because you may not be very grounded on the subject and some of the good old ones are already a lot of seasons ahead. This will make it somewhat tasking to catch up if you don’t have a lot of time on your hands and you may even want to give up watching anime.

For someone who wants dive into anime watching, there are some good animes you can start with as someone of these anime isn’t far gone in their episodes or seasons, so you can easily meet up and be updated on their current episodes. I will be listing the animes along with their genre in no particular order.

So these are some recommended animes for beginners. Although there are other great and amazing animes I have watched, a lot of them are already in their 3rd, 4th Seasons and above. As a consequence, it will be a hassle for someone who is new to the genre to start watching them from scratch when they are just getting introduced into this kind of world.

However, I will include my personal review of some of these anime in a different write up and I hope you enjoy the experience. Please leave comments if you give any of the above listed anime a try.
