10. Akame ga Kill

The ruthless Minister Honest rules the country from the shadows, taking advantage of the new Emperor’s ignorance and twisted morals. As a result, the country’s capital city has been ravaged by a crime and corruption epidemic, resulting in a society in which the privileged have complete dominance over the less fortunate.

Night Raid, an oppositional Revolutionary Army secret division, does exist to combat this rampant abuse of power. It is made up of a small group of ruthless assassins who murder anyone who participates in or ignores the Empire’s heinous crimes.

Tatsumi is a young, inexperienced swordsman sent to aid his impoverished village. Soon after, he witnesses firsthand the capital’s bloody horrors and cruelty. Tatsumi becomes enraged and decides to join Night Raid on a perilous mission to exact vengeance on Minister Honest. Tatsumi learns a lot while researching the ethics of opposing ideologies, life and death, and working to make the world a better place.

9. Devilman

Despite his gentle demeanour, Akira Fudou has always been a bit of a pushover. He reunites with his childhood friend, Ryou Asuka, in a fateful encounter, who reveals to him the terrifying reality of his father’s research: demons exist and plan to reclaim the earth.

Akira agrees to attend the depravity and corruption-filled Black Sabbath party in order to merge with a demon in order to help his friend save humanity. After a near-death experience, he joins forces with Amon, a demon feared even by his own kind. Devilman is the result of Amon’s strength and Akira’s pure heart.

After joining forces with Amon to prevent the annihilation of all human civilization, Akira uses his newfound power to fight the demons.

8. Jagaaaaaan

Shintarou Jagasaki is your average cop who despises both his job and his everyday life. Shintarou, who is about to marry his girlfriend and acts silly in front of others, secretly fantasises about shooting those who irritate him with a gun, much like his hero, the town’s eggplant mascot.

Shintarou’s day is turned upside down when he witnesses a heinous murder committed by a man with a monster’s face. Shintarou’s mind is filled with the ways he has squandered his entire life when the creature murders his partner. But, as he accepts his fate, he unintentionally fires a lethal projectile from the tips of his fingers at the attacker.

Shintarou’s arm is now permanently coated in an unknown substance, and he learns from a passing owl that the now-dead monster was once human. A “Mad Xenopus,” a frog-like creature that takes control of its host and changes its physical body, had an effect on him. Shintarou initially denies the existence of the creatures. However, after one of them seizes control of his future wife, he decides that he must fight and eradicate the former humans in order to survive.

7. Attack on Titan

Hundreds of years ago, terrifying human-like creatures appeared. The “Titans,” or mindless, towering giants, proved to be an existential threat, preying on whatever humans they could find in order to satisfy their seemingly insatiable appetite. Because humanity was unable to effectively combat the Titans, they were forced to fortify themselves within large walls surrounding what may have been humanity’s last safe haven on the planet.

After many years of not dealing with Titans, those who live within the walls have finally found peace. Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman, and Armin Arlert are three young children who have grown up hearing stories about the wonders of the outside world and want to experience everything it has to offer. When their peace is shattered by a massive 60-meter Titan attack, they quickly realise how cruel the world can be. On that day, Eren vows to himself that he will do whatever it takes to eradicate every single Titan from the face of the Earth, in the hope that humanity will one day be able to live outside again.

6. Tokyo Ghoul

Ghouls, or fearsome beings, lurk in Tokyo’s shadows, feeding on humans at night to satisfy their hunger. In response to the constant attacks on citizens and as a means of purging these creatures, the Commission of Counter Ghoul (CCG) was formed. Ghouls, on the other hand, are difficult to recognise because they disguise themselves as humans and live in crowds to make hunting prey easier. When Ken Kaneki’s date turns out to be a ghoul after his flesh, he finds himself in a world between humans and ghouls.

After barely surviving this encounter and being taken to the hospital, he discovers that the surgery he received has transformed him into a half-ghoul. Kaneki is taken in by friendly ghouls who run a coffee shop to help him with his transition after he is unable to satisfy his intense craving for human meat through conventional means. He has no idea that he is about to become embroiled in a war between his new comrades and the forces of the CCG, or that his new life has piqued the interest of ghouls all over Tokyo as he embarks on what he believes will be a peaceful new life.

5. Dorohedoro

The term “Hole” describes a dark, decaying, and disorderly neighbourhood in which the strong prey on the weak and death is common. It is a separate realm from law and ethics, and it serves as a proving ground for the magical users who rule it. As a race at the pinnacle of their society, the magic users regard the residents of Hole as nothing more than insects. Every day, the helpless residents of Hole are murdered, mutilated, and subjected to experiments in the halls of Hole’s hospital.

With free access to and from the cesspool and little opposition to their authority, the magic users appear invincible to most—with the exception of a few. The caiman, a reptile-like creature, is one such example. He relentlessly pursues them, armed only with a trusted pair of bayonets and his magical immunity. After being cursed by his appearance and plagued by nightmares, magic users are his only hope of returning to normalcy. As his stomach is his main obstacle, his female companion Nikaidou, who owns the restaurant Hungry Bug, is his greatest ally.

Dorohedoro strikes a healthy balance of comedy and lightheartedness with death and carnage, set in a gritty world of hellish design. It weaves a unique world of unearthly origin and bleak appearance, with many twists and turns as it follows the lives of the residents of Hole. It is not for those who are easily startled or have a weak heart.

4. Fire Punch

In an ice and snow-ravaged world, the elusive Ice Witch has brought civilization to its knees. Cold weather has sparked cults, violence, and persecution of the “Blessed”—those born with supernatural abilities.

Agni and Luna, two orphans endowed with regenerative abilities, are making the best of their circumstances within a small society of elders; their love for each other serves as a distraction from the uninhabitable climate. Their fragile peace is shattered, however, when army commander Doma passes through and burns down the village where they are seeking refuge, killing Agni’s beloved sister. Doma’s flames will not die until their prey is reduced to ash, and thanks to Agni’s incredible regeneration, he will remain ablaze and in agony.

Agni has conditioned himself to tolerate Doma’s flames after nearly a decade of agony. His rage, on the other hand, is just as strong as the day Luna was taken from him. Agni vows to avenge his sister and kill Doma as he traverses a frozen wasteland.

3. Dandadan

Momo Ayase is wallowing in self-pity after being aggressively rejected when she encounters a bullied boy. The occult-obsessed boy attempts to speak with her about supernatural interests he believes they share after being saved by her rash kindness. In response to his assertions, Ayase declared that she believes in ghosts, igniting a debate between the two about which is correct.

To find out who is right, the two decide to go to places associated with the occult and the supernatural separately—Ayase to the former and the boy to the latter. When the two arrive at their destinations, they realise they were not duped and that the occult and ghosts do exist.

This begins Ayase and the boy’s adventure, who shares the same name as Ayase’s favourite idol, Ken Takakura, as they attempt to repair the surreal supernatural and sci-fi elements surrounding them in order to return to normal life.

2. Hell’s Paradise

Gabimaru the Hollow, an emotionless and cold ninja from Iwagakure Village, was framed and is now on death row. He wants to die because he is tired of killing and betrayal. No execution method, however, works on Gabimaru because, despite his apparent apathy, he has a reason to live. He wishes to return to his wife, who caused him to soften and lose his ability to assassinate effectively. As a result, he will live.

Asaemon the Decapitator, a well-known executioner, notices this and has an idea for the ninja. In exchange for a full pardon from the Shogunate, she wants Gabimaru to join an expedition to an island south of Japan in search of the elixir of life. This island, on the other hand, is one of a kind because it is thought to be Paradise.

The island, on the other hand, is riddled with mysteries, and the exploring team—consisting of those marked for death—may be unprepared to deal with them.

1. Jujutsu Kaisen

An age-old conflict is raging right in front of our eyes. From the shadows, supernatural monsters known as “Curse” terrorise humanity, and powerful humans known as “Jujutsu” sorcerers use mystical arts to exterminate them. Yuuji Itadori, a high school student, is drawn into this bloody conflict after discovering the legendary Curse Sukuna Ryoumen’s dried-up finger.

When he is attacked by a Curse drawn to the power of the finger, Yuuji makes a perilous decision to defend himself, gaining the ability to combat Curses but unwittingly reintroducing the malicious Sukuna into the world. Despite Yuuji’s ability to control and confine Sukuna within his own body, the Jujutsu world regards Yuuji as a dangerous, high-level Curse that must be eradicated.

Yuuji has been imprisoned and sentenced to death when he meets Satoru Gojou, a teacher at Jujutsu High School, who informs him that he has a choice, despite his impending execution. Sukuna would perish if Yuuji died as a rare vessel to him. As a result, if Yuuji consumes the many other remnants of Sukuna, his subsequent execution would effectively eliminate the malicious demon. Yuuji enrols in Jujutsu High, diving headfirst into a harsh and unforgiving battlefield to make the world a little safer and to extend his life.
