It is just awesome after reading all these new titles, this one remains on top for me

Still the face of Shonen Jump

Amazing

2 Hunter x Hunter (2011) Hunter x Hunter (2011) Hunter × Hunter is a manga franchise created by Yoshihiro Togashi. In 1999, Hunter × Hunter was adapted into a 62-episode anime television series produced by Nippon Animation and directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi. The show premiered on Japan's Fuji TV and ran until 2001. Three separate original video ...read more.

This shounen is one of the best, or maybe even best of the best! The plot and the development of each character are truly related to real world, unlike some other shounens who just keep getting powerups without trying too hard. I don't think that this should be recommended for those who are weak minded but who knows? Maybe Hunter x Hunter will help them develop and not comparing their skills.

Best anime ever

Best shonen anime.

Hunter x Hunter is overrated. The anime is slow paced and sucks. Thank god I dropped this. One Piece is better than this trash. - danhibiki

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.

Should be # 1 because luffy is awesome no one can beat him

Best anime ever

Should be #1 or at least 2

Would have been Dragon Ball but it was ruined by Dragon Ball GT.

4 Boku No Hero Academia Boku No Hero Academia My Hero Academia is a superhero manga series written and illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi. It has been serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump since July 2014, and 20 volumes have been collected in tankōbon format.

Best Shonen to come out in a long time, I believe that if the story continues to go as strong as it is right now, it will reach the popularity heights of Naruto, one piece and maybe even dragon ball. The amazing blend of music, animation and character development is what really sets this show apart from its pears.

AMAZING

Season 1 starts out kinda slow and boring, but seasons 2 and 3 are so good that watching the first season will feel worth it, trust me.

I think for the anime of Boku No Hero Academia, it should be higher on the list. With the starting of season 3, it has been becoming one of the most popular anime of Shonen

5 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".

Best anime of all time, surpasses even Bleach

6 Dragon Ball Dragon Ball Dragon Ball is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. It made anime popular in America and is based on the manga of the same name by Akira Toriyama. It was dubbed in English on Cartoon Networks Toonami block and still has many fans today.

This is way more adventurous and fun when compared to Dragon Ball Z. I love them all, but the character development in Dragon Ball and overall show quality completely trumps DBZ.

7 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.

One of the best anime ever with much better plot and character development than max of of the anime's including DBZ it deserves top 5

Should be number 1

Best

Why the hell is naruto on no.7 it should be at least no.2

Need Bleach to come back everything else is absolute trash. Even Dragon ball has nothing on Bleach. Why in gods name did they ever stop making this?

Make Bleach anime return please! 1

After Bleach I can't watch any other anime, all others seem substandard.

Bleach in my opinion is by far one of the best ever made

13 Gintama Gintama Gin Tama, also styled as Gintama, is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Hideaki Sorachi and serialized, beginning on December 8, 2003, in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump.

It's like the Japanese version of Family Guy - KalloFox34

It only gets better overtime

Gintama is underrated. It is probably the best anime I've watched so far. Comprising arcs with different genres and lovable characters from main to minor ones, this anime is highly recommended. (Unless u r too slow to understand the jokes lol)

I do not understand why it's on number 17. It's comedy is top tier, the action is golden, and just Gintoki is a great character. Okita is my favourite, but still. It's not just satirical, there's some action too, and some good one at that. This should be no. 1, what the hell. Well, it can compete with Hunter x Hunter (2011), but I prefer Gintama cause it's Gintama.

Shonen Jump did not make Fairy Tail. - KalloFox34

I love this anime

This anime is so good from the story to the characters and even the filler by far the best magic anime right above black clover

In my opinion Fairy tail is one of the best anime shows.

YEAH. GET DIS UP THERE IN AT LEAST THE TOP TENS OR 7'S OR SOMETHIN'.

20 Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is an anime and manga franchise originally written by Hirohiko Araki. It centers around the perilous journey of the members of the legendary Joestar bloodline.

At the start Jojo’s is just ok, but after part 1 the show gets better and better. Harmon was a generic martial art power, but with the introduction of stands it gave the fights uniqueness and makes the series much different from other anime. This show also makes you fear if each fight might be the end of a main character (even the JoJo).

Is good lol

21 Assassination Classroom Assassination Classroom

Knows when to be absolutely funny and also serious. It is a great mix of emotion throughout and I could not stop watching once I started. Number 2 maybe only to HxH

25 Haikyuu! Haikyuu! Haikyu!! is a Japanese shōnen manga series written and illustrated by Haruichi Furudate. Individual chapters have been serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump since February 2012, with bound volumes published by Shueisha.

So many good anime but my vote goes to this one for it holds a special place in my heart. The characters are so great. Its impossible not to bound with them. I also had a hard time not to root for the other team because all teams and their players have their own story and kind of win your respect during the series. And not to forget the tention all the matches bring with them. I was on the edge of my seat most of the time, laughing and crying with all the characters as they went thru their own personal development and ending up winning or losing... Great great series.

This is the best shounen I have ever seen. Very relatable and lovable characters

While I love sailor moon I don't think it belongs on this list. It was originally published in Nakayoshi magazine, not Shonen jump.
