Most Original / Unique AnimeThese are really good shows that have used ideas that make them different from your average anime these shows were unique in their time and some have led to the concepts being replicated or tweaked with.
The Top Ten
Genius story line that would put a real detective to work. This show is like a strategic chess game played out on a global scale. Furthermore the protagonist is the bad guy. Simply put this show really is unlike any other show.
Greatest anime I've ever watched. I was seriously impressed by Death Note's uniqueness. It's definitely a must-watch for not just anime fans, but everyone in general
This is the only anime I find different than most other anime - zxm
Magnificent story of two geniuses. After watching this show, my anime standards went up really high. There's only a few that can challenge Death Note's ingenuity.
(P.S. Code Geass sucks)
One of the greatest series of all time this anime led to the inspiration of some of our greatest shows the story of a kid who constantly trains to get stronger and stronger in his fight for justice. Goku isn't all that bright but when it comes to fighting he has no equal. This show laid the basic character outline for shows like Naruto, Bleach, One Piece and Fairy Tail.
A show about virtual reality basically is the Matrix thrown in with something like world of Warcraft. This is basically every kids dream world a game much like ones we play today,
This is nothing new, it is just a poor copy of.hack
Ggo is superhot but better
This is a show about two brothers who attempt to get their bodies back after breaking the forbidden taboo in Alchemy. Its is a show that well to put quite simply is unique.
Lol none of this list is unique but at least this has amazing story with great characters
So unique I never heard of a show that involves alche!
Real awesome. You can't get any more awesome than this show. This show is the best hands down if you're looking for epic action and story plot. Eren is such a unique and individual character as well (main protagonist).
Attack on titan has a realm and a love for the characters like no other anime. MUST WATCH
It's the most unique anime, killing titans wooah
Awesome. Awesome.awesome. Awesome. Awesome. AWESOME
A protagonist with such a mindset especially in a slice of life anime is very rare to see.
Best anime ever. It is very unique and deep
Especially for loner like me it is very intersting.we have all faced being loner in one of parts of our life so we all can relate to that.
This is one of the big original animes that started the whole Spirit world craze that we see in shows like Soul Eater and Bleach.
Love Action, love the humor. love this Anime.
A show about a boy whos goal it collect all the creatures in the word and makes friends along the way this show led to shows like Digimon and Yu-Gi-Oh
This is a show about a girl that was mentally abused here entire life and experimented on in some ways this show is very similar to Deadman Wonderland.
Just mindless king
It's so awesome. The place the characters are in, is the afterlife. They've organized a secret club that a girl started so she could get revenge on god because of her three murdered siblings. So, basically it's awesome.
This is not 'that' unique but it has many interesting premises mixed to form this piece of literature
A show about a swordsman that is already basically as strong as he can get he is doing good deeds in hopes of atoning for the murders he committed.
You wouldn't find another shows like this even outside the anime. Even if one probably exist, it's really hard to find the show like this because it's rare. From the narrative, the connected events, and no real main characters. In words, Baccano is a "never-beginning and never ending" tale.
Why isn't this number one? Everything about it is unique and original and especially it's characters.
Simply because of the characters and how the story is told
Tthis is fairly nw
This is a really old anime that helped to create the idea of fighting in power suits in the anime world this show has led to the creation of shows like Evangelion and Zoids.
Okay yeah its not entirely Unique but this show is about soul reapers people that fight hollows ( fallen souls) and guides people onto the next world. While the story has evolved to be so much more this concept alone is an idea that has been touched on or tweaked by several shows such as D. Gray Man.
You have to be a true otaku to know of this anime. Nonetheless, it is the most unique animes I've ever seen, to say the least. It is well plotted and has a very interesting meaning to it. If you hold a high attention span and have a large IQ, then you are going to love this anime. - NerdyPweeps
Durarara has a unique plot and character developement, and will really blow the minds of all who watch it.
