This anime tells the story of Shirayuki, a beautiful red-haired girl who lives in the Kingdom of Tanbarun as a pharmacist.
One day, the prince in the Kingdom of Tanbarun heard the uniqueness of Shirayuki’s hair and intended to make him a concubine (mistress). But Shirayuki refused and decided to run away from the kingdom.
In his escape, he met a man named Zen who turned out to be a prince from a neighboring country.
Knowing the problem that is being faced by Shirayuki, Zen invites Shirayuki to live in his country.
From here the story of Akagami no Shirayukihime is rolling.
One of the best shoujo genre anime has a lot of good things.
Aside from the sweet characterization, visuals, music, and stories, there are also other things that make the Akagami no Shirayukihime anime a viable anime to watch, namely with a lot of character development.
The story itself is set in the world in medieval times, Shirayuki who has bright red hair like an apple always gets into trouble because of it, but sometimes happiness comes.
Each episode of Akagami no Shirayukihime will always be filled with the development of each character, with the coming of conflicts in each episode, the character will be honed to become better.
So there will be no repeatedly taste, nor will it be annoyed because his character does not change his actions as the story goes.
Besides that, the stories of Shirayuki and Zen always give very sweet things too, well indeed the Shoujo genre always gives a sweet love story service.
This anime has two cour, so don’t be afraid the story will be very dependent on the last episode of the first cour. As far as I can remember, there were no fatal plots that caused the story to be bad.
Everything is filled well, although surely each story will always have small holes.
The graphics are also drawn in detail, background, characters, all drawn well.
His voice was good, besides the ending song and opening song, the Seiyuu acted violently while filling their voices. The voices of Seiyuu are very well suited to the character.
The background music is pretty good too, I really like music where the sweet things or sad things happen. The music is very fitting with the atmosphere.

Since then, they both must continue to hide from Suwon’s pursuit and royal forces.
The incident made Yona determined to avenge his father. Even though in fact, Yona still had feelings of love for Su Won.
One of the reverse harem anime is really good and suitable for watching for those of you who like anime with genre, kingdom.
Apart from his adventures, there are many things that make the Akatsuki no Yona anime one of the best reverse harem anime.
The story itself aims to gather the descendants of dragons, while adventuring Yona and Hak will get new experiences that will hone their traits or actions.
Yes, in this anime too many good character developments. Especially the development of Yona which is the character with the worst character.
But that didn’t last long because on their adventure, Yona and Hak always had problems when gathering the four dragon breeds.
These conflicts sometimes develop into big things, such as solving state problems and the like.
The characteristics are pretty good too. Although some of them do not have a character that has a strong character, but thanks to that the anime has a character that becomes a refreshing atmosphere.
Many comedies are funny that invite smiles or even laughter.
The story of the rights that Yona likes too and trying to get close to him are very sweet, even though there are some conflicts that make it a cliffhanger and when it is finished it becomes its own service.
The graph is good, I forgot a little about the background but for a good description it was well drawn.
Yona’s expression was always active especially when she gave a serious expression that made the enemies tremble.
Seiyuu acted well and their voices were very well suited to her character.
3. Black Bullet – Enju Aihara
Rate MAL: 7.36
Genres: Action, Sci-Fi, Mystery, Seinen
In 2021 humanity was defeated by a parasitic virus named Gastrea. Mankind is forced to live in a wall made of Varanium Monoliths which can weaken Gastrea.
Shortly after, it was discovered “Cursed Children” who were born with super abilities who could control the Gastrea virus.
A special Gastrea exterminator group was formed consisting of these children.
Black Bullet is an anime adaptation of light novels with the same title which has great martial arts elements.
For those of you who are looking for anime with the martial arts genre, the Black Bullet anime is an anime that you must watch.
One of Enju Aihara’s main heroines who is a Tenchuu is a refresher in this anime which has a very dark background.
Like torture of accursed children, the world invaded by Gastrea, and the like.
The main character Satomi Rentarou has a strong character, he has been honed to be a suitable character to be in this situation. And he is Enjuu’s partner.
The interesting thing in this anime is internal conflict, because at the time of the Gastrea invasion, there were many things that disturbed and gave its own mystery.
Also as a refresher, this anime shows a lot of loli as a sweetener and … well the rest just watch it.
The story is indeed rather impressed hanging, yeah, it’s understandable, anime adaptation of light novel is always like this. The character development is also somewhat lacking, the story is indeed not too flat but not too good.
But for this anime action it’s really right to watch.
In music there are things that I like the most besides the voice acting, which is the opening song and the ending which are very pleasant to hear. The closing song is 2 and the opening song is only 1.
The music is very beautiful for the ending song, while the opening song is very full of energy, the opening video synchronizes well.
Graphs can be said to be pretty good, indeed it’s very difficult for me to say it’s very good, but the graphics for this anime are pretty good.
The portrayal of the injured character, or the one affected by the infection is very dark, it gives a new side to this anime.
4. Fairy Tail – Erza Scarlet
Rate MAL: 8.05, 8.09, & 8.27
Genres: Action, Magic, Adventure, Fantasy, Comedy, Shounen
Set in a fictional world, where there is a Wizard Guild called “Fairy Tail”. This guild is located in the city of Magnolia, which is in the Kingdom of Fiore. At present the guild is headed by Makarov.
Lucy Heartfilia, a 17-year-old girl who wants to be a witch. She decided to join one of the most famous wizard guilds, Fairy Tail.
One day, by chance she met Natsu Dragneel who was drunk. When meeting him, Lucy does not know that Natsu is a wizard member of the Fairy Tail guild.
Alright, alright, alright. Who doesn’t know Erza Scarlet from the Fairy Tail anime?
Erza Scarlet is a character who has a hard and shameless character (except if there is Jellal).
And the Fairy Tail anime is an anime adapted from a weekly magazine, which means it definitely has a lot of episodes.
The story that is centered on magic and this guild named Fairy Tail provides many beautiful and sometimes … dark fanservice.
The story of the action was very good, although as usual there were still many plots here and there when the story was getting farther away, whether it was adaptation or maybe it was the author’s fault.
But understandably the further the story, the more difficult it is to close the plot-hole.
The story in the initial cour was very fantastic, but as Natsu Dkk’s story fought a very, very strong enemy that they could not even defeat.
Then the answer to beating it is a cliche that is often used in old anime, namely the power of friendship. Well, this is the only disadvantage of Fairy Tail.
The rest is good, from sexy fanservice, interesting stories, interesting themes.
That’s all lack of Fairy Tail.
Graphs don’t ask, yes, for anime adaptations from weekly magazines usually have their own staff. So quality is always guaranteed.
5. Hataraku Maou-sama! – Emi Yusa / Emilia Justina
MAL Rate: 7.96
Genres: Comedy, Demons, Supernatural, Romance, Fantasy
This anime tells the story of a demon king named Maou Sadao who is famous for his cruelty – who was just one step away from conquering Ente Isla.
But unfortunately, her attempt to conquer Ente Isla had to fail miserably when the humanity led by Hero Emilia carried out a massive resistance.
Pushed by the attack of mankind, the demon king was forced to take off her realm of power at Ente Isla and decided to flee to another dimension with one of his loyal generals, Ashiya Shirou.
Unfortunately, Maou-sama & Ashiya were even thrown to the earth, where the two of them couldn’t fully use their power.
Without magic, without work experience and without an education certificate, Maou and Ashiya also tried to find work to survive on earth.
It seems like most already know who Emi Yusa and anime are like Hataraku Maou-sama! that.
This comedy anime, gives a lot of things that make the audience interested and becomes the most awaited anime for the S2 that will either exist or not.
A story centered on the poor Maou Demon King who is a worker at a fast food restaurant named MgRonald.
Actually what made this anime so much awaited?
Apart from the story and character development, this anime has a unique theme and comedy that is very funny, and things like this are very rare.
So this anime is the right anime to recommend.
The character of Maou and Emi who is a demon king and hero should be a contrast, but north and south will attract each other if likened to the magnetic context.
That is, even though they were enemies in the world before, but in the human world they would inevitably work together to fight the conspiracy of churches or Maou friends like Lucifer.
The story is not too heavy in the anime even though later in Light Novel it will be even harder.
That way, Hataraku Maou-sama! It is an anime that is mandatory for anyone to watch.
6. Highschool DxD – Rias Gremory

Lucky Gremory Rias, who is also the most popular woman in her school, revives Issei again.
However, Issei was not turned on as a human, but as a demon and became Rias’s subordinate.
I’m sure many of you have watched one of these hard ecchi anime.
This anime adapted from light novel has a unique side, the fanservice which is very excessive, but strangely it is not a bad thing and even becomes a characteristic of this anime.
Even though they have fanservice too much, this anime itself provides exciting and interesting stories, and also funny comedies. that’s why this anime has become an anime that has many fans and has a rating at MAL which is quite high for hard ecchi anime.
There are many good things here, aside from the waifuable heroines, this super-pervert MC Issei is the main attraction of this anime.
7. Mahoutsukai no Yome – Hatori Chise
MAL Rate: 8.23
Genres: Fantasy, Magic, Shounen, Slice of Life
Chise Hatori is a child who was ostracized by society because she was able to see supernatural beings.
Desperate for her fate, she decided to sell herself in an auction for witches.
It was there that he was reunited with Elias, a goat a magician who bought Chise to become a student, while being prepared to become his bride.
One of the best anime in winter 2017 is indeed very mandatory to watch for fans of fantasy genres.
Besides the unique story, the theme of his thick fantasy became the main point in this anime.
Just get ready, those of you who haven’t watched will always be surprised at each arc in this anime.
Her fantasy story is really thick, accompanied by background music that gives the atmosphere of the world of fantasy even so beautiful.
The portrayal of characters and fantasy backgrounds is also amazing, fantasy creatures are very unique and different from other fantasy anime.
The opening song and the cover are very beautiful, especially what I like best is the first course opening song that is very synchronous with the video.
Also the story that was previously full of mysteries began to open every episode, the main character Chise will develop along with the story.
His romantic story is very sweet even with a skull.
Although there are some shortcomings, it doesn’t make this anime a bad anime.
8. Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry – Stella Vermillion
Rate MAL: 7.73
Genres: Action, Romance, Ecchi, Fantasy, School
This anime tells the story of a school of magicians who use modern magic. In women, witches use weapons that are the embodiment of their souls.
Kurogane Ikki studied at this school to become a Magic Knight, but she was referred to as “Failed Knight” because she lacked magic power.
One day, she was challenged to duel with Stella, a daughter from across the country who was the number one student.
Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry is an anime with martial arts genres and sword arts.
For me who likes techniques in sword art, this anime provides its own service for me. That is the sword techniques that are shown and explained well.
Besides that, the story is quite exciting even though it is very hanging at the end of the episode. Well, LN’s adaptation habits.
But unfortunately the amazing thing in this anime is just the sword arts, the story itself is not as amazing as the graphics in the action and sword techniques, but also not bad.
The story is too fast, the character development is too slow, the fanservice is not suitable.
But still, this anime is still suitable to be recommended thanks to the good action section.
9. Shakugan no Shana – Shana
MAL Rate: 7.64, 7.71 & 7.66
Genres: Action, Drama, Fantasy, Romance, School, Supernatural
Once upon a time, a poet discovered that there were creatures that were not inhabitants of this world mingling in the midst of humans.
They came from another world which was later called Guze. The inhabitants of Guze who crossed into the human world were called Guze no Tomogara.
To be able to survive and do various things in the human world, the Tomogara needed strength called Sonzai no Chikara or the power of human existence.
A few years passed, one day, the nameless Flame Haze girl saw Tomogara preying on a large number of people in a city in Japan. One of the victims is Sakai Yuji, an ordinary high school student.
When she watched Rinne eat the Sonzai no Chikara from those people,
Yuuji confusedly shouted to stop her and attracted attention
Rinne who soon realizes that Yuuji is a mistess with hougu in her body that makes him able to move in fuzetsu.
Shakugan no Shana is an old anime, but the anime which was also adapted from Light Novel has a good graphic for the 2006 anime.
The story itself only has one point but it is always complicated, namely Shana wants to be with Yuuji again already. But the storyline makes it even more difficult and complicated.
But that’s what makes this anime suitable for watching for fans of the supernatural and action genres.
Shana, who is rather unstable if she has something to do with Yuuji, is cool, her moves provide a visual service for the audience.
The battles are very exciting to watch, the story only has one main point, but each arc is very exciting.
Shakugan no Shana is very mandatory for you to watch.

The romantic story between Kurisu and Okabe is another attraction of this anime, the sacrifices made by Kurisu and Okabe, the changing timelines.
Become the attraction of this anime. The resolution of the problem is very complete, the conflict makes the audience take part in the atmosphere.
