20 best anime shows on Crunchyroll to binge right now

It’s the most wonderful time of the year … to binge.

If you haven’t dived into the anime yet, the holiday season is a great time to splurge on some amazing splurges.


Since Crunchyroll is free to download, there’s no excuse to look outside when it comes to great anime. I’ve listed what I thought were the best anime to start with and hope this list can guide you to watch some more in the future. I will keep my fingers crossed that any newcomer can get on the anime train.


My hero university


In a world of superheroes, “Quirks” is what gives you the power to be extraordinary, by MHA we follow Izuku Midoriya and his journey from a weakling without eccentricity to an unusual hero. It’s a show with some great fight scenes as well as some heartfelt moments that made me cry multiple times. The Class 1-A that the series really focuses on gives you a great selection of characters to cheer on, as you see them all take one step closer to becoming Pro Heros.


The attack of the Titans

Wit Studio / MAPPA

A dark fantasy drama set in a post-apocalyptic world where giant humanoid “Titans” roam the earth, making humans live behind walls to protect the last of humanity. This story delves into the why and how of these “Titans” and the importance of the main protagonist Eren Jaeger in all of this. It’s a series that has taken the anime world by storm and personally it’s one of my favorites.


Fire force

David Production

For any pyro fan, this show is for you. It revolves around Shinra Kusakabe and his fellow Fire Force Company 8 who face not only explosive demons called “Infernals” but also an apocalyptic cult called “The White Clad”. This is yet another addicting show with incredible animation and rich storytelling that cheers you on not only Shinra but everyone in Company 8, especially Arthur, whose silly character makes him sometimes the most awesome fighter.


Sword art online

A-1 Photos

Imagine that you decide to play a VR MMORPG game and find out that you are trapped in the game until you die or someone beats the game. This is the starting premise of this amazing anime that brings to life his young life in Kazuto Kirigaya in a simulation with very real consequences. Be careful though, that the seasons become more intense when it comes to its violence, it took me by surprise by season 4.


Haikyu !!

IG production

I never thought I would find a sports anime to my liking, I thought there would be no real stake in watching a sports show in anime form. Man I was wrong when I finally took the plunge Haikyu !! and I realized how invested I was in seeing the rise of Shoyo Hinata. You can see the small child fall in love with the game of volleyball and throw crushing spikes at his opponents. Don’t sleep on this anime like I did for so long.


Jujutsu kaisen


Whenever I think of wizards Harry Potter comes to mind, but it’s not that kind of witchcraft. In the world of Jujutsu Kaisen, people radiate cursed energy through negative emotions which in turn create cursed monsters. Wizards are trained not only to control their cursed energy, but to use it to defeat these curses that seek to destroy humanity. It’s a wild concept that’s superbly well done and makes anyone a fan of series frontman Yuji Itadori, though Gojo is probably another fan-favorite character as well.


Naruto and Naruto Shippuden


Following the story of young Naruto Uzumaki, these two shows tell stories from another part of this young ninja’s life. Naruto mainly takes place during his early years of training to become a ninja. With that comes a certain amount of ridicule as his immaturity downplays his dreams of becoming the next Hokage in his village. It’s also the moment he discovers the Nine-Tailed Fox that was sealed in his body when he was a baby and what that power means to young Naruto. In Naruto Shippuden, we see a more mature and skilled ninja, as well as details of the hosts of other tailed beasts who are captured and killed for mysterious reasons.


Boruto: The Next Generations Of Naruto


Following the events of Naruto Shippuden, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations focuses on Boruto and the children of some of our favorites Naruto characters. We can see the kind of parent Naruto has become and also how similar Boruto is in his aspirations and maturity.


Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood


With the original series broadcast in 2003, FMA: Fraternity is a more accurate description of the manga than the previous adaptation. The story follows two brothers Edward and Alphonse, who, in a desperate attempt to bring back their deceased mother, attempt a form of alchemy that causes Edward to lose an arm and a leg while Alphonse loses his body but has his soul. housed in armor. This is just the start of this duo’s journey as they journey on a quest to learn more about the powerful Philosopher’s Stone and their bodies’ potential for restoring.


Rurouni Kenshin

Studio Galop

After a ruthless life as a murderer, Himura Kenshin travels the Japanese countryside to offer help to anyone in need as penance for the murders he has committed. He wields an inverted katana so that even in battle he does not take another life, although this proves difficult as enemies old and new alike test the limits of his peaceful ways.



Crazy’s house

Vash the Stampede is wanted for sixty billion dollars and even though he’s a pacifist more in love than a fighter, he just can’t stop wreaking havoc in every city he visits. It was a slow burn at first for me, but Vash’s caring, comedic way of handling sticky situations still had an episode even if it felt like a filler. Another great sight that you can get through quite quickly without investing too much time.


Hunter x hunter

Crazy’s house

When Gon Freecss discovers that his father is not only alive but that he is a famous hunter, he sets out to find him. To do this, he must become a licensed hunter himself, and together with a selected group of friends, they must overcome impossible obstacles to achieve their goal.

After meeting a Demon Slayer and proving his bravery and willingness to protect his now demonic sister, he has the opportunity to become a Demon Slayer himself and search for a possible cure for Nezuko.


A play

Animation Toei

One of the oldest anime and manga still in existence, A play is not for the faint of heart. If you decide to start watching this show, engagement is key. The hacking adventures of Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates are countless at this point, but offer a rich and deep story that you can only get with a show that has been set since 1999. Luffy and his teammates are fantastic characters. to cheer on when they search for the coveted “One Piece” treasure that will make Luffy the next Pirate King.




With the ability to see ghosts, Ichigo Kurosaki never thought much about his gift until he met Rukia, a Soul Reaper whose sole purpose is to rid the evil spirits known as Hollows. After his younger sister is taken away by a Hollow, he recklessly jumps into action, which leads Rukia to be seriously injured and has no choice but to siphon off some of her power from Ichigo. This is the genesis of his Soul Reaping and his introduction into the spiritual world of which he knew nothing.


Hajime No Ippo: The fights!

Crazy’s house

As a boxing fan, Hajime No Ippo really did their homework not only on the history of boxing but also on the techniques that made some of the best boxers in history the greats that they were. Ippo is a shy kid who never fights back until one day a professional boxer saves him from being bullied and shows him the benefits of being able to box. This lights a huge fire in Ippo as he is naturally strong in all the manual labor he does for his mother. Ippo’s development as a boxer that he becomes is inspiring to watch but also comical when combined with the fraternal relationship he develops with Pro Boxer Takamura. While the animation may seem dated, the boxing matches and overall technique shown are top notch.


A punch

Crazy’s house

There are a lot of overpowered protagonists on this list, but none more than Saitama who can literally take down most villains with one punch. This leads to Saitama getting bored of never being challenged by the countless monsters that terrorize the city. This premise really makes for an interesting take on the superhero genre and makes it laugh when you see Saitama’s half-hearted face facing enemies, unless of course he’s shopping, which seems to be his only joy. in life.




When Kagome is slaughtered in her family’s well by a demon, she is transported to another time where she meets Inuyasha, a half-demon, half-human in search of a gem of immense power. Once the jewel is shattered into several pieces, the duo travel across Japan on an adventure to collect shards in order to transform Inuyasha into a full-fledged demon. Their adventures lead to the meeting of great allies but also formidable enemies because many demons and humans are also in search of the broken jewel.


JoJo’s bizarre adventure

David Production

Unlike most animes, JoJo’s bizarre adventure does not focus on a main protagonist. It follows the history of the Joestar family over the generations and the history that accompanies the surname. The most frequently used powers are called “Stands,” which are like an extension of the user and come in different forms, some good and some weird. It’s a refreshing take on the storytelling focusing on how this family became the warriors that they are and how they’ve faced evil time and time again.


Death threat

Crazy’s house

When a mysterious black notebook called “Death Note” falls into Light Yagami’s hands, he discovers that he can kill anyone as long as he writes his name in the book and knows his face. He further learns the story of this notebook from a “Shinigami” named Ryuk and why he brought this powerful book to the human world. This forces Light to rid the world of criminals, making him the biggest killer but also the most wanted criminal of all.
