The 10 best rated anime series in history

Some were great legends of the 90s and others were released less than a decade ago, but all share the honor of topping the best lists.


The world of anime has been increasing in recent years to unsuspected levels. Thanks to the introduction of new platforms of streamingas crunchyrollor the commitment to this genre as Netflix has done with Devilman Crybaby or Kakegurui, Japanese animation is increasingly on everyone’s lips.

Shingeki no Kyojin is one of the most popular anime of late, but it has not made it into the top 10 of the best rated in history, like the iconic Dragon Ball Z or One Punch Man. To get a complete list, see made an average note of the media IMDB and Myanimelist, a website specialized in anime, resulting in some surprises.

We leave you below with what it would be the top 10 best rated anime series in history:

10.Death Note


Although Death Note, based on the manga by Tsugumi Oba and Takeshi Obata, is for many a masterpiece, there are those who question its position on the podium. The reason: the second part of the plot focused on Light Yagami loses a lot compared to the first, something that practically all fans of fiction agree on.



Gintoki Sakata is a young man who is not going to give up his wooden sword for anything in the world and decides to be an independent samurai. Sakata thus offers his services for any small job and on his way Shinpachi and Kagura will join them, thus creating a shop to carry out work.

8.One Piece


Since its premiere in 1999 and with more than 1,000 episodes already broadcast, One Piece has managed to enter the top 10 of the best anime series in history. With a live action series yet to be released on Netflix, Luffy’s story continues to give people something to talk about and I’m sure he will continue to do so for years to come.

7. Cowboy Bebop


One of the classics that is never missing from the rankings. Cowboy Bebop managed to make a whole generation of anime fans fall in love in the nineties with 26 episodes full of futuristic adventures.

6. Steins;Gate


The television adaptation of the Japanese visual novel of the same title was successful as was its playable version. The originality of its plot conquered the world and reached the general public in 2011, although in Spanish circles it has had a somewhat lesser diffusion.

5. Kill la kill


The anime has been considered one of the best of the 2010s. The story is set in a world where some lucky ones can attend Honnoji Academy where they are rewarded with special uniforms that increase their abilities.

4.Hunter x Hunter


Yoshihiro Togashi’s manga fell in love with the public since its launch, dating back to 1998. However, the best-rated anime adaptation was not the one that came right after, in 1999, but the one that premiered in 2011 on Nippon Television.

3. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood


The second adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa’s manga sweeps most anime titles in rating. He has achieved something that seems almost impossible: the approval of practically the entire otaku community. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood ranks third. This anime, directed by Yasuhiro Irie, plays with the advantage given by the path that the work of Seiji Mizushima, responsible for Fullmetal Alchemist, has already covered.

2. The Promised Neverland


In second place is the anime that has left more than one crazy for its terrifying story. Three orphans are waiting to be assigned a foster family. But soon they discover a cruel reality of their existence and begin to rebel and fight as hard as they can in a dark adventure.

1. Missing


The precious first place has been achieved by Disappeared, the story of Satoru Fujinuma, an apparently normal boy who has the power to travel back in time when a tragedy approaches, in order to prevent it from happening. Trouble comes when he is dragged back to 1988 so he can catch a serial killer.
