Entertainment at home: Here are 10 binge-worthy anime shows

by Ashton Christensen

It’s no secret that our everyday life has changed drastically.  

With events and activities being canceled, students staying home, and many Danes working from home, it can be hard to figure out what to use all your spare time on.

These are circumstances that can challenge even the most tightly-knit families and relationships, and that’s why MyAalborg is ready with a guide to entertain (and distract!) you during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We’ve made a list of 10 entertaining animes you should definitely give a watch. 

The Big Three

These three shows are perfect for anyone with a little extra time on their hands. 

One Piece 

Time really flies when you’re watching 929 episodes. 

With One Piece being one of the longest running anime shows in history, it certainly doesn’t miss out on amazing character designs and development. 

Considering the show hasn’t finished for 20+ years, will we live to see the end? Unclear. But we will certainly remember every enjoyable arc.  

Watch it on Crunchyroll.

Naruto 

The amazing writing, plot twists, and a ninja world full of surprises and battles are sure to have you on the edge of your seat screaming, crying, and rethinking your entire life. 

Just the amazing soundtrack is reason enough to sit through all 700 episodes of Naruto.

We do recommend skipping some of the filler episodes as they aren’t part of the main story. 

Watch it on Crunchyroll

Dragon Ball Z

Standing 277 episodes tall is one of the fan favourites of all time. The godfather of anime and the pinnacle of all the fighting: Dragon Ball Z.

As the name suggests, Dragon Ball involves dragons and balls. I wonder how you tie those together? Watch the anime and find out!

Watch it on Amazon Prime

New kids on the block

Everybody loves shonen anime but which show does it best? 

My Hero Academia 

Another great anime is My Hero Academia, which consists of 88 episodes. This show is great at tricking you into thinking that you might have a secret superpower. 

It’s a simple story on paper: a boy dreams of becoming a superhero. But as the story unravels, it ends up bringing its viewers into a massive loving family, all cheering for our superheros in the show. 

Watch it on Crunchyroll.

Hunter x Hunter

There’s a reason Hunter x Hunter sits atop many “Greatest Anime of All Time” lists. 

With a unique power system, countless loveable characters, and top notch training and tournament- arcs, Hunter x Hunter deserves the top spot when it comes to shonen anime. 

Hunter x Hunter has 148 great episodes. 

Watch it on Crunchyroll.

Hype fan favorites

These are some of the most hyped-up animes today. They’re either known for their great plot, terrific music or exciting fights.

Attack on Titan

The hype is real on this one, gaining only more and more watchers as time passes.

Do you like the idea of GIANT humans feeding on your friends and family? 

No… me either. So watch as our revengeful main character ventures out into the dark world of titans and deception to end the war once and for all. 

Attack on Titan has 59 episodes.

Watch it on Crunchyroll.

Fullmetal Alchemist

Here is another undoubtedly great anime, beloved by many, and consistently touted as being one of the best. 

And we agree! Throughout the whole story of the Elrich brothers, you’re on the edge of your seat, waiting to see what will happen next.

There are two versions of Fullmetal Alchemist. Seeing as the first version was made when the manga wasn’t finished, they decided to continue off plot. Therefore, we recommend watching the second version of the newer Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, which is 64 episodes long.

Watch it on Netflix and Crunchyroll.

One Punch Man

Even if you’re not a fan of anime, it’s nearly impossible not to acknowledge the entertainment value that One Punch Man brings.

We follow Saitama who, as the title implies, can defeat any enemy with just one punch. Because of this, he grows extremely bored in his search to find a worthy opponent. Trust us when we say that watching Saitama’s boredom unfold is extremely exciting! 

One Punch Man has 25 episodes.

Watch it on Netflix and Crunchyroll

Death Note

A truly creative masterpiece.

We follow the main character Light who receives a so-called Death Note one day, which allows him to create his own ideal world. This storyline combined with the spooky character design and thrilling music creates one of the best animes in the world if we may say so. 

Death Note has 37 episodes.

Watch it on Netflix and Crunchyroll

Sports because it’s a little hard to get hooping right now

Unfortunately, playing sports isn’t the easiest thing to do right now so here is something to please those of you who miss it.

Kuroko no Basket

We’re not joking when we say this anime made us cry more times than any other anime. 

Its sick animation style combined with the incredible, unique powers of each character really makes this anime one of the greatest we’ve seen.

Keep in mind that watching NBA will never be the same after this!

Kuroko no Basket has 80 Episodes.

Watch it on Crunchyroll
