Top 10 Anime With the Best Story

Anime has a lot of qualities, most other forms of media don't have! One of those is the unique stories of every anime! These are the ten with the best ones!

The Top Ten

1 One Piece One Piece One Piece is a manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. The manga has been adapted into an original video animation (OVA) produced by Production I.G in 1998, and an anime series produced by Toei Animation, which began broadcasting in Japan in 1999 and has aired 851 episodes to date.

One Piece is simply the gold standard for how to write a long running anime. Each saga is it's own confined epic and the variety from saga to saga is just brilliant. The characters are simply phenomenal with interactions that make them seem real. The emotional beats are hit every single time and no form of art has ever made me cry as much as One Piece has. While a lot of people who haven't seen/read One Piece like to say that it's just a classic "I wanna be the best" story with Luffy's goal being becoming Pirate King. But the concept of Pirate King and what it takes to become the Pirate King plays beautifully into the lore of the world, global politics, power dynamics, and what it means to truly be free. Above all else One Piece is an adventure and it takes you with it. - spirituallemon

One piece is the best epic anime/manga ever. Odd has just created a wonder. The excitement of each arc is amazing. I would recommend it to people of all categories. The jokes can give you tummy aches. About the story, alabaster arc was great. Sky Island was good too. Enies lobbies was amazing. Thriller bark was average, but contained important information. Whitebeard war arc was amazing even if it had a sad ending. Fishman Island was great. Dressrosa was like supper amazing. When Zoe is complete it will be great too. Wholecake is going on with superamazing twists. There are only few fillers with is not boring. Apart from fillers all other episodes is a must watch because it is a continuous story and each episode contains important information. The only problem I see is the video quality. Therefore I would recommend the Manga. But even when having a bad video quality it stands out in the top. People may say that it is very long but it is worth every second. Overall One piece is the ...more

The overall plot is very unique. The feeling when watching every arc is different from other Anime, because the feeling of excitement never fades and you'll want it more. Unfortunately, the only negative side is when you are waiting for the latest because it's a very annoying feeling.

Best anime with great story

2 Death Note Death Note Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The show is centered around Light Yagami a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".

If the quality was consistent throughout the entire show, I'd say it'd be gunning for the #1 slot. Unfortunately, things kind of take a nosedive halfway through the show after a major character is killed off.

I loved the story, I recommend some people to watch it. It's a very good anime with a good story. - SapphireGrim

Near killed it. But this anime is easily 11/10 because Near is in maybe 1/3 (probably less) of it. Even some of those were good. 11/10 anime.

A lot of smart people, trying to outplay each other. The animation is also good. For young and old.

3 Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is an anime series adapted from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga by Hiromu Arakawa.

Everything about brother hood is incredible. Story, characters, plot, animation. If you really don't like this anime you may need to go to the hospital cause you have something wrong with you. Sucks you in from beginning to end.

Great story - and I think this Anime is the source of Attack On Titans - Both heroes their father kept an secret - both of them volunteered in the army - Both of them have a special power but they don't know at the beginning - Both of them has traitors in their armies with special power either - both of them has brother or sister with a sad story - both of stories depends on circle maps - Both of them sit in a big giant! what a coincidence!

FMAB has a brilliant, flawless storyline that is told through characters that are perfectly imperfect and you can easily relate to. Not a single filler episode to distract from the main plot, and is the only anime that will make you laugh, cry, and throw something at the screen all in one episode.

Every episode is unique and throws you through a cycle of hysterical laughter, tense action scenes, suspenseful dread, and thought-provoking philosophy. Tackling controversial issues in a wonderful presentation that everyone will fall in love with. You'll be dashing to spoilers just because you want to know who lives and dies, but please, experience it in the form it was meant for: binge-watching. ~Pyra Storge

4 Naruto Naruto Naruto is an anime and manga franchise Naruto, created by Masashi Kishimoto. The manga was later adapted into a television anime, which was produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex. It premiered across Japan on the terrestrial TV Tokyo and other TX Network stations on October 3, 2002. The first series ...read more.

It has too many fillers, but also has the most detailed stories for each character

I, a grown man, cried watching this anime. The story is beautifully written, and though there are many fillers, they also have a lot of importance within the story and some are amazing (crystal user arc). There are many characters who ALL get their time unlike a few animes where one character hogs the story. The main character is an idiot who never gave up. Naruto made me look at life differently and I believe we can all learn something from this anime. 10/10. Outstanding job Kishimoto.

Best show I ever seen in my life, this show has me addicted to it, awesome character development and the best plot ever, I wish the would make another Naruto I'm begging. I even trued hypnosis on myself to forget the series so I can watch it all over again.

Best anime in my opinion though I am on naruto shippuden and Ian dying to see next series best anime of all time guys sure watch iam never gonna stop watching sad anime happy anime and funny too made me cry and laugh 👌🏼👍🏻

5 Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop Cowboy Bebop is a 1998 anime television series animated by Sunrise featuring a production team led by director Shinichirō Watanabe, screenwriter Keiko Nobumoto, character designer Toshihiro Kawamoto, mechanical designer Kimitoshi Yamane, and composer Yoko Kanno.

This is a cool list and all, but where the hell is Berserk! It is not even on the list and I think it definitely has the potential to be amongst the top 10.

My absolute favourite; just make sure you watch the movie at the right place in the series, because you absolutely must make sure that the final episode is the final thing that you watch from this amazing anime.

I think it's time we blow this stand... get everybody and their stuff together... OKAY 3 2 1 LET'S JAM

This is such an amazing anime, til this day I won’t get over how it ended.. literally a 10. - ashauriam_

It definitely has a good story line at some parts, like the whole time travel/Cell/Future Trunks thing, but that isn't why anyone watches DBZ. - Yoshilord

Best story, best actions, best characters,... Everything's perfect. - Goku02

It does not have that much of a good story but the whole anime itself is more than brilliant

The plot is simple but truly gripping and captivating, so I never got bored watching it - Goku02

7 Sword Art Online Sword Art Online Sword Art Online is a series of Japanese light novels written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by abec. In 2012, it received an anime adaptation produced by A-1 Pictures and the SAO Project, and is directed by Tomohiko Ito . The first season is divided into two arcs known as "Aincrad" and "Fairy Dance". ...read more.

An Anime that could have been the very best if they made 50-100 episodes and developed the world they were in and the characters a lot more. But instead they rushed a lot of what was happening and kept changing things up. I could make more sense of my opinion but I don't want to ruin the show for new viewers. Still worth watching.

Overall, it's very intriguing. The storyline has many details filled with action, mystery, and romance. You get so attracted to the characters, their personalities are amazing, the animation is beautiful, it is relatable to gamers, and anyone really. I loved it, but it does kind of lose it's fire by the second season.

Has its flaws, but it had its ups and downs. Still loved the anime series and I can't wait for Season 3. It might be an improvement from a few of the arcs that had some flaws.

Wrong vote... oops

8 Gurren Lagann Gurren Lagann Gurren Lagann, known in Japan as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, is an anime series animated by Gainax and co-produced by Aniplex and Konami. It was also directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi and written by veteran playwright Kazuki Nakashima.

My favorite anime of all time. Crazy over-the-top story and animation with some of the best characters I've ever seen.

Watching this changed my life. I'll never find an anime as powerful

This one really beats the HECK out of all anime, the characters on this were GIGANTIC and POWERFUL, Even Goku was puny compared to these.

Game changer

It may be somewhat cliched, but everything in this anime is executed perfectly, which makes it stunning to watch. - Mcgillacuddy

I really didn't want to watch this show at first but now I spend every day waiting for season 2 to come out.

Best anime the story is perfect and in the manga when they go to the basement and know the truth about the titans it's so unexpected

10 Code Geass Code Geass Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, often referred to as simply Code Geass, is a Japanese anime series created by Sunrise, directed by Gorō Taniguchi, and written by Ichirō Ōkouchi, with original character designs by manga authors Clamp.

It's just too good, it ruined Anime for me, I can't watch anything else cause it can't compare to Code Geass. However I did watch Death Note right after because people said it had similarities so I might enjoy it as well. Death Note is also a great Anime until half way through but makes up for it in the end. In my opinion you should watch Death Note first so that you can't compare it to Code Geass so you can enjoy it more, than watch Code Geass.

I love this show so much. It was my second anime, my first was Naruto.

Code Geass has an amazing story! This should be much higher!

Cunningly smart and interesting plot... it changed my outlook in anime... great storyline and build of characters... not a moment wasted in straying from the main plot...

Monster has been critically acclaimed, with the manga having won several awards and its anime adaptation being called one of ...read more.

Anyone who has seen Monster knows it is the number one.

Only reason this isn't near the top is because it's a long series that many people pass by on the list. Every single episode will have you on the edge of your chair, I promise.

How is this not number one? I'm not even a big anime fan, but I loved this one.

Why this anime is not at top 3?

13 Naruto Shippuden Naruto Shippuden Naruto: Shippuden is the ongoing sequel to the original Naruto anime and covers the Naruto manga from volume twenty-eight on. The TV adaptation of Naruto: Shippuden debuted in Japan on February 15, 2007 on TV Tokyo. It is developed by Studio Pierrot and directed by Hayato Date.

This should be at number 1 because it's better than one piece

Best story line ever

"Best character and story anyone can write. Many fillers but itachi's filler is great and best character of any anime.

Simply amazing. Loved both Naruto series but this one made me laugh, cry and want to “never give up”.

14 Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters

Yes, yes, yes, YES! Unlike many other shows about card games (read: Pokemon) this has a plot. Every villain, every hero, every anti-hero, fits in so well with the story. Each season the duels just get bigger and better, and you can relate to all the characters (even the villains! ) and some of the events. All in all, the best anime I have watched with a great, thought-out plot. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!

"Best Card Game in the World?!?! "

Best story plot everrr

15 Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist Fullmetal Alchemist is an anime series adapted from the manga of the same name by Hiromu Arakawa. It is about two brothers, Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric, trying to restore their bodies after failing at bringing their mother back to life. It aired in 2003 and was remade as Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood ...read more.

Shows classic story progression and plot, in a good way. The main characters are very likable and they approach manipulation of the elements in a fresh way. I prefer Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood to the first attempt at the series because I think the plot progression is more smooth because it is following the manga. Definitely worth a watch.

I loved the plot - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Probably should be number 1

Amazing plot and characters! - ashauriam_

16 Steins;Gate Steins;Gate Steins;Gate is a 2011 anime television series created by the animation studio White Fox based on 5pb. and Nitroplus's 2009 video game of the same name, and is part of the Science Adventure franchise.

How is this not in the top ten? It blew my mind with its many plot twists and amazing character development. It had a great story, and it really drew me into the world it created.

This anime has LOADS of plot twists that you CAN NOT see coming

Best anime plot ever death note. This is a amazing work of a genius mind with a deep relation to actual science and the timeline theory making it complex and engrossing. Truly deserves to be on the top 5.

Trust me guys! I am not even biased towards this anime. This should be top 5. There's a reason why I am telling this. Give it a try. You would be amazed

17 Hunter x Hunter Hunter x Hunter Hunter × Hunter is a manga franchise created by Yoshihiro Togashi.

The show premiered on Japan's Fuji TV and ran until 2001. Three separate original video ...read more.

Hands down, the best anime/show I have ever watched in my life. Nothing else can compare to it. I watched it 2 years ago and I still haven't found a show that is even close to as good as it.

Everything is so unique in this story. The characters, the personality, the power system "nen' is the best system I have seen in all of anime. What makes Hunter X Hunter different than any other anime is that, unlike Luffy, Midoriya, or Asta, Gon Freecss, the protagonist, started off pretty well with his power. Most other characters start from the bottom and become zero-to-hero. Instead of overcoming obstacles to become the greatest, he just wants to find his dad that abandoned him when he was young. Even with his great power, he is forced to sacrifice it all for the good of someone else. Even side character can put you through oceans of tears. No anime can come close to what Hunter X Hunter has shown me. I wish I could forget everything that I watched in this anime, so I could rewatch it again to get the same feeling that I did when I first watched it. That is how amazing Hunter X Hunter is.

This is my absolute favourite Anime of all time. The character development is insane, the character design is different (never seen before and I watch at least 1 Anime/week), story is really great and keeps you watching, good fights in which the characters think instead of putting their whole feeling into it and let it have a great bom (if you know what I mean) and beautiful pictures which garantees goosebumps.

Hunterxhunter = best story!

18 Fairy Tail Fairy Tail Fairy Tail is a manga franchise created by Hiro Mashima. The manga has been adapted into an anime series produced by A-1 Pictures and Satelight, which began broadcasting in Japan on October 12, 2009. Additionally, A-1 Pictures and Satelight have developed seven original video animations and an animated ...read more.

Fairy Tail obviously doesn't have best storyline here. Every arc are same. Example for Natsu, every time he fight with strong opponent, he badly defeated. Then later on, when one of his friend been hurt or what so ever, he become angry and stronger. Then he defeat the opponent that have overwhelmingly power with ease. Every damn time. The power love what so ever give him strength. Well, that too irrelevant. I suspect with the power of love he can defeat God either in that anime. Honestly, fairy tail not really have a good story

Many critics regard Fairy Tail harshly about the lacking of originality of the arcs and the 'treatment' of women. But isn't One piece and Naruto and many other anime the same? The difference between the classic overly sexualized female characters and the FT girls is that these girls are pretty and kick-ass. They're independent and strong, mega strong actually. They know this and they own this. And the arcs that are criticized for having little originality, are a bit unfairly judged, in my opinion. Natsu is flamboyant and a lot of the times steals the show at fights. The 'nakama power' is not a super skill but rather his loyalty to and love of his friends drive him to stand back up and fight. And all Fairy tail member are the same in their own ways. And each arc is an adventure. The character developement is delivered in spades, albeit subtly. I guess the thing I want to say is: This series never bores.

Fairy Tail has some good elements as far as action and "The Hero's Journey" but it has some really annoying qualities that throw off the viewers. Like thecompletely unnecessary blue talking cat sidekick and the kind of disgusting over-sexualization of women so common in anime. Entertaining? Yes. A classic? Probably not.

Its awesome

Love this! great plot.

I think,in terms of Plot, Baccano's is one of the best. it's solid and consisting...Especially if we keep in mind all the different characters, each with his/her own story, and the beauty of it is that we don't fully understand everything until the very end.
it's been years since I watched this (never read the LN), but I still remember everything in it...

One of my favorite shows. It follows history perfectly, the sword fights are just perfect, as well as a love story that isn't rushed.

Maybe this too soft but this is an anime with a good purpose, and I remember the honor and friendship kenshin taught me when I was a kid

Heart touching!

Its been 3 months since I completed the show and I still get goosebumps every time I hear anything related. Starts of as an almost comedy like show but the further u go the characters go. Also, maby the best ova's ever.

The best anime, keeps you guessing until the last moments. Original ending fell short but redial solves everything leaving you fulfilled and wanting to watch it again! Never have I felt so connected to characters on a show before, emotionally intense and great watch!

Mirai Nikki gets you so bad. The story is so good, even after watching it I keep searching for anime's that are anywhere near as good as Mirai Nikki. Absolutely my favorite!

I'm not a big anime fan and I really almost never even watch T.V..
But I realized when watching Mirai Nikki that it was actually very good. I then decided to watch the whole anime and I'm glad I did.
You should too, Yes... You, outside the screen.

Puella is very Very VERY sad and has so much anticipation that makes you come back for more. I can't handle how amazing this anime is. I also love the twist in later episodes explaining everything. It's so awesome! I definitely recommend it!

One of the most powerful stories told by any movie or T.V. show, from any country, period. Perfect pacing, well-timed twists, very dark and sad throughout but with an ultimately hopeful and redemptive message. A probing, thoughtful story that keeps you yearning for more, with interesting characters and a stunning ending.

So magical + you have to ship Homura with Madoka.

Great Storyline! Just expected from the creators of Death Note!
I think the creators made this anime/manga just like what happened in their real life from the start of their relationship to the ending of their work. Tsugumi Ohba as Takashi and Takeshi Obata as Moritaka. Reversi as their masterpiece Death Note.

29 RWBY RWBY RWBY is an American 3D web series created by Monty Oum for Rooster Teeth. The show is set in the fictional world of Remnant, where young people train to become Huntsmen and Huntresses to protect their world from the creatures of Grimm.

Love this show so much. I just wish Monty didn't die.

Rwby isn't an anime

I wish Monty died sooner, because it's been getting much better since then.

Inuyasha is so amazing! It's has a great storyline. Filled with fantasy, adventure, romance, comedy it is absolutely awesome. The main character's romance is equally frustrating though, but the anime's ending is absolutely the best

40 Soul Eater Soul Eater Soul Eater is an anime series directed by Takuya Igarashi and produced by Bones, Aniplex, Dentsu, Media Factory, and TV Tokyo, which adapts the Soul Eater manga written and illustrated by Atsushi Ohkubo.

I absolutely loved this show. The characters all unique. The bad guys are truly bad. What I like most about it other then the moments of humor are the way the characters evolve throughout the series. Watching Blackstar's magnificence move the braggart in the first episode to the ass kicking bad ass at the end is truly enjoyable. I highly recommend this.

This shown is hilarious, and somewhat inspiring.

I love this show

I never watched anime before in my life so I decided to go online and check one out I'm glad I did soul eater has a extremely good story line to it not all serious even a lot of funny moments, the characters are amazing and it is amazing love it I truly wished they didn't end the series (for grammer nazi's my typing isn't the b est sorry :) )

41 Case Closed Case Closed

Case closed or detective conan (same thing) is one of the BEST anime I know, it is still ongoing with 904 episodes. It is all about action, drama, mystery and it has a tiny, tiny, bit of romance, but it is very "rare". The series has a very interesting story, even though it kinda is boring in the beginning, the more you watch, the better it gets. The thing about this anime, is that there is one thing that is basically holding the whole series, and it is still not found out yet, which makes it worth the wait. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS ANIME.

One of the best animes. It has a great story. - Maximus_

This definitely is the best anime and should be in top 10

It’s an awesome detective anime with comedy and drama it’s wild.

Unexpectedly underrated anime even though it has one of the best representations of antiutopic world not only in anime but overall. It is mysteririos and has its own unique atmosphere. Characters are nicely written and there is little unnecessary fanservice which is nice. The whole storyline is really good. It should get more appreciation to be honest.

43 Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic

The second season Magi: Kingdom of Magic makes this series a must view for any anime fan. Also watch Sinbad first, so there are really three seasons.
