Have You Seen Them All…?
If you are new to anime and are wondering where you should start then you have come to the right place. Below you will find the 10 highest ranked anime of all time.
If you are already a fan of anime then you are probably reading this list to see if your favorites are on here or to see (and laugh at) which popular shows have made it onto the list.
So, let’s not waste any time. Today, we are going to talk about the current highest-rated anime.
#10 – One Punch Man – 8.56
If we had put together this list before the second season of One Punch Man came out then it would have been much higher on this list.
The first season of this show became an overnight hit around the world and many were predicting that it had the possibility of becoming the greatest anime of all time.
Sadly, the second season was a bit of a letdown.
#9 – My Hero Academia – 8.79
If you are a big fan of the superhero genre but think the western take on it is getting a little boring then you are going to love this show.
Based on a successful manga, My Hero Academia follows the lives of students at a school for superheroes. The main character is Izuku Midoriya, who was born without powers but is still determined to become a hero.
#8 – Bleach – 8.99
Bleach may not be the anime with the most episodes released (Pokemon and One Piece we are looking at you), but it still has a reputation for being a LONG show.
Bleach has just over 360 episodes out at the moment with more on the way.
This show provides us with the genre crossover we never knew we needed – samurais and ghosts.
#7 – Dragonball Z – 9.15
Dragonball Z was one of the early 2000s animes that was such a big hit that it was regularly shown on TV in America, Canada, and the UK.
If you are looking for an action-driven show that is full of entertaining and lovable characters then look no further. Dragonball Z has everything you need.
Perhaps this shows only floor (filler episodes excluded) is that the fight scenes go on forever.
#6 – Naruto – 9.38
If you are a mango fan then you will be well aware of Naruto. The series dominated the charts for well over ten years.
The anime was just as big a hit across the world.
This show follows Naruto, a ninja with a demon trapped inside his soul who is determined to become the Hokage (ninja mayor) of his village.

#5 – Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba – 9.39
This is one of the newest anime on this list and one of the shortest.
Demon Slayer follows the story of a brother and sister whose village was slaughtered by a demon. The sister witnessed the attack and during it, her blood fused with the demons’ and she became a demon herself.
The pair set out on a journey to help her regain her humanity.
It’s short, sweet, and gruesome.
#4 – Mob Psycho 100 – 9.56
If you are looking for something a little bit unusual (we understand that means very unusual in the world of anime) then you might want to consider giving Mob Psycho 100 a go.
It will make you laugh out loud, the art style is unquestionably one of the most adventurous out there at the moment, and you will fall in love with the characters.
#3 – Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood – 9.59
If you haven’t watched this show already, do yourself a favor and pick it up as soon as you finish this article.
This is set in an incredibly interesting world with a magic system that rivals some of Brandon Sanderson’s best work.
The show follows the story of Al and Ed who are trying to find a way to reverse the accident that led to Al’s soul being trapped inside a suit of armor.
Because of Ed’s powers, he is conscripted to fight for the government.
This series has a lot to say about family, power, and war. It is endlessly rewatchable and has some of the best plotlines ever in anime.
#2 – Attack On Titan – 9.74
Possibly the biggest anime in the world right now – Attack On Titan is a grimdark fantasy that can rival any written in the 1980s.
This is an incredibly graphic show with a plotline that will keep you hooked from the first episode. The world is unique and unforgettable. The characters are fascinating and lovable. It has everything you could want from a TV show.
#1 – Death Note – 9.98
Number one on this list is Death Note.
This anime follows a boy who finds a Death Note, a book that will kill anyone whose name he writes in it. As he starts to kill off criminals an international detective is hired to hunt him down – who will outsmart the other?
