By building giant semi-mechanical robots controlled by teenagers like Shinji, Nero is trying to counter this epic invasion and keep the earth afloat.

In addition to depicting exciting mecca-style battles between giant robots and extraterrestrial invading forces, the neon Genesis Evangelion anime explores the emotional and emotional strength of Nero members, stemming from the psychological strain on their immature controllers. Due to its ancient, psychological, religious and mystical origins, the work has always been accompanied by many ambiguities and questions about why it happened. The depth of the story and the mysterious aspects of Hideaki Anu’s original anime increased even more after the controversial end of the series with The End of Evangelion. Until a series of four films called Rebuild of Evangelion re-entered other aspects of the story and reached the final conclusion.

This background of Roroni Kanshin’s story leads us to a work that, beyond its fascinating action and comedy, longs for human concepts and expresses values ​​beyond egoism and materialism from the heart of a historical period. Roroni Kanshin anime is still a spectacular work with its classic narrative, and of course, it has recorded one of the best OVAs in the history of anime called Trust and Betrayal, a 1999 product, which should not be missed in any way.

A group whose rumors of victories are spreading rapidly everywhere, but the interaction of Gates and Griffith, who have different spirits and goals, is tied to a strange and dark destiny.

Just as Berserk’s masterpiece manga was eventually stunned by the death of Contaro Miura, the making of a full-length anime of this fiery and insane story remains one of the anime world’s grievances. However, the first season of Berserk, with its classic art, can reasonably portray its ruined and chaotic world; A ruthless world in which the mob of evil forces, along with the faint streams of hope, presents a biting philosophy to the audience. After this series, three anime films have been made from Barzark: Berserk: The Golden Age Arc and another season in 24 episodes of 2016 (which did not shine because of its dry and soulless computer graphic style), but it is still the old version. It is the best anime adaptation of this collection

After gaining more knowledge of the world of networking and computers, Lane engages in mysterious adventures that lead to a deeper understanding of his mind as he discovers new meanings.

The greatest achievement of the Serial Experiments Lain anime is the display of a psychological fear, whose futuristic ideas have become closer to reality over the years and even the subject of scientific research.

Because “the world is not beautiful and that is why it is beautiful.”

It comes and this is the beginning of a different life and special events related to the world of ghosts and shinigami.

Maybe if Piero Studios had given up the habit of filmmaking for anime and focused more on the main story of the anime, Bleach would have found a much better position among anime viewers. Nevertheless, Bleach is still a unique anime about the tumultuous connection between humans, evil spirits and Shinigami. Anime that, by raising the standards of its genre while addressing established and common human values ​​such as friendship, trying to protect the precious people of life and evoking a sense of empathy in the face of the protagonist’s suffering, becomes an inspiring and respected work.

By 2075, humans have reached a point where travel between Earth, the Moon, and space stations has become commonplace in everyday life.

With the arrival of a young and motivated girl named Ay Tanabe to this group, we are witnessing an increase in the motivations and efforts of this group to prove the value of their work to others.

Planetes anime is an unusual space science-fiction drama in the style of Sinen, in which there are no strange events and superhuman beings, and the vastness of space is the background for ordinary people’s lives with hopes and dreams that extend to the stars. A story that, with not-so-complex subtlety, deals with thought-provoking issues about the place of human aspirations in infinite space and the effect that seeing the earth from this distance has on his worldview. In fact, issues such as the low position of collecting and disposing of space debris sometimes become a directional allegory in more specific contexts throughout the story that should not be overlooked.

The story of Champlo’s samurai anime takes place in the historical period of Edo, in which references and signs of the modern era are combined; Where three strangers named Mogan, Jin and Foo come together in different spirits and embark on a journey to find a samurai who smells of sunflowers.

Shinichiro Watanabe, after directing the cowboy Bebop, which takes place in the distant future, this time with Samurai Champlo, has turned to making an anime whose story takes place during the Edo period in Japan. Throughout the anime, the political, social, religious, and artistic events of the time are historically referred to, but in the narrative of modern references, popular culture is also confronted with temporal contradictions such as graffiti and hip hop. Fast-paced action, flawless dialogue and subtle anime comedy combined with the episodic brilliance of the story and of course its lovable characters make it one of the best serial anime in history.

Monster Anime

An issue that becomes a major crisis in the journey into the dark depths of the human psyche.

Monster is one of those animes that deals with complex and thought-provoking aspects of individual and social decisions in the occurrence of great tragedies with complex atmosphere and calm and patient storytelling. Monster Anime is a bitter concoction of human bewilderment, madness and despair in the face of the horrible psychological pollution of life, which opens the vulnerable layers of the brain like a bullet and wakes up the sleeping monster.

Anime Ergo Proxy

A detective named Riel Meyer, along with a robot as her assistant, begins an investigation into the causes of the killings. The story is further complicated by the addition of Vincent La, an immigrant from Musk City who is involved in a proxy project and has a troubled past.

Ergo Proxy anime written by Dai Sato is not one of those works that stimulates the audience with a fast rhythm and a lot of fights, but by referring to philosophical principles and resorting to ancient mythology, it goes to the introverted and psychological aspects of the concept of identity. Needs contextual knowledge and research outside the story for the patient viewer. We are on the side of an unhealthy dark cyberpunk anime with mysterious and questionable dimensions, which even the kind of soundtrack and its special visual technique, which is a combination of three-dimensional design with two-dimensional cell animation, has added more richness to its complex atmosphere.

Welcom anime to N.H.K.

One day he meets a girl named Misaki Nakahara who wants to change Sato’s status from an isolated and antisocial person to a more self-confident person.

Welcom to N.H.K. is an instructive psychological drama full of valuable insights into personal and social life that uses current black comedy to address important issues such as isolation and inaction, conspiracy theories, and suicide. Welcome to Anime is one of the less appreciated works that if we look more patiently and delicately in its descriptions of the special situations of the younger generation, we will realize that this uncut diamond is more different in the world of anime.

The idea of ​​Death Note is still fascinating, having a notebook with which we want to eliminate anyone who has committed a crime is definitely one of the most controversial fantasies in the world of anime. The consequences of gaining this power and creating an intellectual battle between the two geniuses create a breathtaking confrontation in the story so that everything goes out of the way that seems easy and obvious at first. Light wants to be the god of a new world he creates, but everything can be changed as easily as a gamble.
