I’ve watched plenty of anime shows.
There aren’t many I’d recommend to watch at least “once” in a lifetime.
And there are fewer I’d recommend If I had no choice but to mention ONLY 1 series.
With that said…
The #1 anime you should try at least once is: Flying Witch.
It’s a slice of life/magic series, released in 2016.
Why Flying Witch?
1. It’s a breath of fresh air
This anime is a laid back slice of life series, based in the rural countryside.
And while it might include “fantasy” elements, it does a damn good job of making it special.
2. It’s a great show to relax to
Nothing feels forced.
It’s these elements that make it feel “real” as you tune in.
And each episode feels like a massage as the vibes are so relaxing.
3. It’s a short anime series
The anime was first released in 2016, and the pacing from episode to episode is chilled.
4. No fan-service
I mean, even in 2017 fan service is running wild like Lions in an African safari.
So similar to point #1, this anime is refreshing because it’s nothing like your average show that airs today.
It takes real effort to make an anime stand-out, without throwing in cliches we’ve seen 1000’s of times.
You might also want to try:
- Sakura Quest.
- The Ambition Of Oda Nobuna.
- Psycho Pass.
If you had to recommend 1 anime show, what would it be?
