Teri Galvez is one of our in-house anime nerds. Here are a couple recommendations from her!
Attack on Titan: In a world where humanity lives inside three walls, giant humanoid beings called Titans roam everywhere else attacking humans on sight. A boy named Eren Yeager is determined to wipe them out and joins the military, but discovers a mysterious ability during his first battle.
With the final season rolling out, now is the perfect time to binge the first 3 seasons and join the worldwide phenomenon. If you enjoy action and drama, this is a great anime for you. Available on Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hulu, and Netflix.
I Don't Want to Get Hurt, So I'll Max Out My Defense:
Yes, that is actually the name of it. A fun anime about a girl trying out VR for the first time, and decides to take up a shield. However, she only puts skill points towards Defense, which leads her to some weird encounters and fun adventures. This silly, fun anime is great for those who want something easy to watch and can laugh at the ridiculousness. Available on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
