1. Eden Of The East (Higashi no Eden)
This is easily my favourite anime of all time and I'd recommend it to anyone even if they didn't like this kind of thing. Eden Of The East combines several genres including romance, mystery, comedy, action, drama and a little bit of what the fuck is going on to create a masterpiece of emotions and loveliness. It's an anime that I think can have a special place in anyone's heart.
2. Erased (Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi)
Death. Death. So much death. If you haven't watched this one already it's definitely time. I cried in just about every episode and I cried for days after. This anime is very heart warming and you find yourself cheering the main character, Satoru, along on his journey to save his friends and family. This is one of my favourites because of how determined the main character is and won't stop for anyone or anything (even if that does mean going back in time and leaving what you have behind).
3. Kids On The Slope (Sakamichi no Apolon)
This anime has a real slice of life thing going on and it hits you hard with reality. It faces real life problems and for me was a real tear-jerker. If you like jazz music and sentiment this is for you! Even if you don't, it's definitely something that I'd recommend checking out nonetheless. It's cute and at least a little bit relatable for everyone whether it's being in love with someone that doesn't love you or having a pet that you love dearly.
4. Durarara!! (Season 1)
Gang wars and Celtic myths! This is an interesting anime that strays away from reality and more into fantasy the further in you get. These three kids lives are about to become a shit storm! Durarara is one of the most exciting anime's I've watched and almost everything that happens thickens the plot and makes it even more overwhelming than it already was! I don't think this anime would be for everyone but there is a bit of lesbian incest for all you gross kinky weirdos out there.
5. Blue Exorcist (Ao no Exorcist)
CHOO CHOO ALL ABOARD THE OVER SYMPATHISING WITH THE MAIN CHARACTER TRAIN. Blue Exorcist is action packed and doesn't keep you on your feet for more than a second at a time. Something is always happening and it progresses quite quickly. If you're looking for a fast paced anime where someone new is possessed every episode you'll enjoy this anime! I didn't cry much through this anime so if you're a wuss like me and don't want to cry watch everything except the last episode because the last episode will have you crying a dam.
