According to MyAnimeList, there are over 2800+ adventure
I guess you can say adventure is loved by the
Whichever you look at it, there’s enough to go around.
So If it’s adventure you want, here’s a list of 20+
1. Guardian Of The Sacred Spirit
A young Prince is in danger of being murdered by his own people. His mother secretly hires a bodyguard to take care of him and runaway.
And the female protagonist is one of the most polished, well-developed I’ve ever seen.
Did I mention there’s no stupid, inappropriate fan service here because the quality is that good?
2. Granblue Fantasy: The Animation
Granblue Fantasy was originally adapted from video
A girl named Lyria has been enslaved for no fault of her own, and a lieutenant (Alize) attempts to help her escape at the cost of making the empire her enemy.
This is a short series, and the animation isn’t some of the best I’ve seen.
But there is something different about it that you may appreciate. Like the art style and characters.
The image above is from the beginning episodes of
AND their roles are relevant to the story as well for the most part.
Fanservice is the major thing that might “put off” most fans, but there are few adventure

Except fan service in
The romance in
And with more than 100 episodes to its name, it’s an
6. Log Horizon
In Log Horizon, the characters are stuck in an MMORPG called Elder Tales. So they decide to live inside the game and create their own society from scratch.
What follows is business, politics, and adventures full of some series comedy AND gaming action.
It’s like a mixture of Spice And Wolf’s business elements, with the strong elements of video
Sword Art Online
If you prefer a gaming adventure series where it’s a matter of life or death, this is a better alternative to Log Horizon.
There’s also way more romance and “feels” In
8. Samurai Champloo
A girl named Fuu is looking for a Samurai who smells of sunflowers. And is eventually joined by 2 samurai’s after her home is destroyed.
By adventure standards, you’ll never find an
Samurai Champloo is a breed with a unique taste you won’t find anywhere else.
Akame Ga Kill
A group of assassins join up to destroy the corrupt capital, the government, and create a revolution to bring peace to the world.
This is the most violent, depressing, immoral adventure series you’ll watch. With some of the sickest action and battle scenes of modern-day
I like the approach it takes in terms of killing off characters, rather than the “I can’t die” trope most shows throw around.
10. Spice And Wolf
Beautiful series that blends subtle romance, business, historical elements and animation that’s hard not to appreciate for its time.
It’s the best series if you want romance and adventure without the flashy action. And of course, a rich adventure that focuses on 2 main characters, which keeps it nice and focused.
Normal humans are turned into soldiers that are half human, and half demon. Their one goal: destroy full-blooded demons.
This is the main story of Claymore. What it lacks in an original story, it makes up for with its action, adventure and battle scenes. Some of the best you’ll ever see in the 18+ genre.
Pacifica Casull is abandoned as a baby, and thrown by the waste side. Luckily she survives and is adopted by 2 brothers and sisters.
13. In Another World With My Smartphone
If you already guessed – this is a harem/supernatural series.
The main character is killed accidentally by god, and brought back to life as a gesture of gods mistake.
The joke is: Mochizuki Touya (main character) is given gods phone number, so he can call him anytime.
As long as you don’t take this
14. Alice & Zouroku
This is an underrated 2017 series for me.
Alice And Zouroku focuses on two characters: a non-human girl, and an old man who’s a florist.
They meet by chance, and she’s later adopted into the family.
After you watch the first few episodes, you’ll understand why. But know this: Alice & Zouroku is one of the most calming, relaxed, yet slightly dark and meaningful animes you’ll watch. With a protagonist duo that helps it stand out.
15. Kino’s Journey: The Animated Series
The story focuses on Kino and his motorbike: Hermes. Every week they travel to a new town or country, staying no more than 3 days at a time. So if you love traveling, you’ll love Kino’s Journey.
The first thing you’ll notice with Kino’s Journey is the gorgeous animation.
No episode is wasted with its animation quality, and each scene is dripping with realism and colorful backgrounds that are pleasing to look at.
16. Kono Subarashii
Konosuba is a comedy/adventure series and one of the most famous types in the last 5 years.
You’ll get some over the top comedy, humor, and similar vibes to
17. A Place Further Than The Universe
A Place Further Than The Universe is a special case. Easily one of my favorite adventure
It’s about pushing yourself and making an effort. That’s the underlying theme. But the plot is tied directly to an adventure the main characters go on together. And how they go about doing it.
18. No Game No Life
Being an Isekai series, it’s no surprise to see this is an adventure
These types of shows always have this element baked into it. At least to some degree.
No Game No Life focuses on Shiro and Sora. Characters who are smart and know how to “play the game” better than their competition.
It’s also produced by Madhouse, and shouldn’t be suprising.
19. Magi Series
Magi is an
The adventures in Magi aren’t as grandiose as something like
The Rising Of The Shield Hero
It’s about Naofumi who’s transported to another world, becomes a shield hero, and then has a false rape allegation amde against him by a vindictive b*tch.
