Top 10 Best Shounen Animes of All Time:
1. Naruto (Series)
Almost 15 years later, who wouldn’t love this anime? Naruto came a long way of becoming the best ninja he can be, even better.
2. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
A story that defies the greatness of what brotherhood can do. This is one of the best shounen anime you will ever see.
3. One Piece
This is one anime you totally grew up with. Aired in 1999, One Piece is the shounen endgame boss. It is one of the longest running shounen anime ever made.
4. Katekyo Hitman Reborn
Sawada Tsunayoshi or well-known as Tsuna was one of the main protagonist who is literally not good in school performances, but with the help of Reborn, he became the bad-ass 10th boss of the Vongola family.Even better than being the cool kid in school.
5. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
Code Geass introduces us to one of the most prominent anti-heroes in anime, Lelouch vi Britannia. It’s an anime you can compare to a chess game, a very entertaining strategic chess game.
6. Attack on Titan / Shingeki no Kyojin
Even if considered as an underdog for this genre, you definitely don’t have the reasons why this should not belong on this list, because it’s so damn good you would have to face the towering fandom if you go against it.
7. Dragon Ball Z
Is there any reasons I have to explain why this is on the list?Moving on…
Even after all the filler episodes and disappointing delays of the series,Bleach deserves a spot on this list. You know why…
9. Rurouni Kenshin
The coolest samurai anime you would ever have! Even the live-action movie never failed to impress us all.Probably the best live-action yet…
For a different kind of shounen, Gintama never failed to pull-off the parodies and comedy from start to finish.
