Now let’s refer back to the peculiar kind of magic. It has been normalized and its application can be used in various fields. Though unfortunately, the protagonist lacks the aptitude for it. He chooses to live a normal life instead but will the circumstance just let him be?

Set in a world that has been ripped apart by 2000 years of constant battle and war, the demon king makes an agreement with the human hero to sacrifice his life to guarantee peace. Two thousand years later, we learned that the demons have created this messed up system in which royal demons rule over the lower class and humans and spirits.

Another brilliant fantasy anime isekai series. Arifureta shows the journey from normal to ultimate overpowered powerhouse, quite unlike any other.

When they get transported into an isekai realm, everybody gets these crazy powers, but Hajime gets some pretty basic alchemy magic that craftsmen mainly use.

Through his journey, our hero becomes stronger and stronger and meets up with a number of interesting and engaging characters. Arifureta has us constantly guessing where it would go next, from dragons to vampires.

World Trigger Sci-Fi Anime

Brilliant adventure and science fiction anime series that has a little something for everybody. On the edge of our seats from the very first episode, trust us when we tell you that this is easily one of the greatest anime series we’ve ever come across in a very long time.

Set in Mikado City when a mysterious gate appears that opens up the world to another world. These monsters start entering through and attacking the humans as our weapons are so weak against them. However, this mysterious organization shows up and starts fighting the monsters off.

These weapons are called triggers, and they allow the users to channel their inner energy to fight these beasts, but the core story kicks off four years later with humans getting used to occasionally fighting off these monsters, and they’ve returned to a relatively normal life.

Until this mysterious white-haired student transfers into the local school, he is actually a monster in disguise, with a lot of mystery and a core storyline that is perfectly unraveled. You won’t get any spoilers here, but we definitely recommend that you check out World Trigger.
