Amazon has a decent catalogue of relevant anime shows.

They cover genres like:

  • Shounen
  • Slice Of Life
  • School
  • Action
  • Fantasy
  • Romance

And a few others.

Here’s the recommended anime to watch on Amazon prime.

Thanks! I’ve already got all but 2 of the classic anime list you made a few days ago on my Watch List! These will make a great addition! I’m going it alone as an otaku, so I rely on good hearted souls like yourself to educate me on new shows!

And the upgrade on your avatar looks AWESOME! She’s definitely a 10/10 now!


What about made in abyss? You can watch it on amazon too, and I think it’s pretty fire, even if it only picks up near the end.
