Best Action Anime

Best action anime

Best Action Anime is going to be the list of best (according to us) titles fitting the action genre, starting with the older ones that claimed to be iconic over many years such as “CowboyBebob”, “Trigun” or “Berserk” ( of course the older one) and passing to the newer anime like “Parasyte” or “One Punch Man”. As you can see we will include something for everyone, older and younger audience will feel here like at home. This list is made with no particular order, and we also suggest to not choose the anime just by a rating number, because sometimes anime with a lower rating may be more fun to you. This compilation contains a lot of well-known shows, but this is normal in general lists like this one.

You will find here some titles that not many people would name Top action ones, but in our honest opinion they have more crazy action scenes than others and we only bring you anime that we enjoyed.

Top Action Anime

In most cases, anime from the action genre, are something more than just simple endless fighting scenes, where after few episodes you don’t even remember what all the fuss was about like in “Dragon Ball”. Many of them have complex story-line such as in “Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood”. If you look for anime with greatly written characters like in “Hunter x Hunter”, where not only main characters catch the attention of the audience, but also villains that have their 5 minutes to show their good side too. If you want to watch sensational and older action anime with mixed up elements of a drama and comedy you could go with “Trigun” or “Cowboy Bebop”.  This list will be expanded by series that has not been included yet, so check with us later for more fun anime to watch!

  • FMA Brotherhood background

    Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

    The second and faithful adaptation of the manga by Hiromu Arakawa. The fantastically created world, which shows typical shounen anime from a new perspective. We will not receive here typically a weak character that goes through the bunch of "power-ups", and he is the only one to save the world. The World in this anime is not so simple as black and white,  people apparently kind in this world turns out to be rotten to the marrow, it is quite hard to specify border between good and evil. Main characters Edward and Alphonse are from the very beginning granted with extreme pain and suffering. Of course, anime is not only one big drama, we are able to find here plenty of comedy gags and a great dose of action, yet however this anime makes us induce to afterthoughts.

  • Hunter x Hunter background

    Hunter x Hunter

    The Second approach to adaptation of a manga by Yoshihiro Togashi, that has received several dozen of episodes from new manga chapters. The storyline is about young Gon whose wish is to become the hunter so he can understand his father intentions who has left him alone. This course of storyline allowed main characters to have plenty of time for progression, but not only the main ones as it turns out because peripheral characters were very well written and also villains, that were not only a punching bag but they had a chance to be shown from a good site too so that allowed the viewer to empathize with them more. Of course, in terms of actions, this anime does not disappoint, actually it has remarkable fight scenes with an extremely good soundtrack. Also very nicely created the world allows the viewer to go smoothly through a quite large amount of episodes, but probably for many people, it wasn’t enough.

Series tells the story of the Vash whose head has been put on a bounty for an enormously large price, probably because wherever he has shown up there only the disaster has been left behind. Vash has been followed by two woman clerks that were supposed to stop him from further destructions. As it is usual for anime, those three were put together in dangerous and funny situations granting viewers with a huge amount of laugh and gun firing just like in westerns.
