Published with 25 volumes on May 14th, 2004 with an anime adaptation on June 1st as well as a fun spin-off: “Soul eater NOT,” Soul Eater is about the main character, “Maka Albarn” and her best friend, “Soul Evans” fighting evil Souls and banishing them.


I recommend this anime/manga if you're of course an action fan as well as comedic anime. All four seasons can be found on HULU or Crunchy roll due to its new collaboration with Funimation!


Fairy Tail - By Hiro Mashima

With an awesome new spin-off coming out soon, Fairy Tail was published August 2nd 2006, and got an anime adaptation on October 12th, 2009. Made by Hiro Mashima, this Tale follows “Natsu Dragneel” and his best friend, “Lucy Heartfilla”, as they go on wild adventures with their Guild, “Fairy Tail” trying to earn their name in the top Wizard guild.


Both Anime and Manga are enjoyable and available on HULU, Crunchyroll, and VRV! Recommend those to you that love a good binge because it sure is a lot to watch with 328 eps.


Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures - By Hirohiko Araki

Known for its Bizarre and funny real-world references, Jojo's bizarre adventures is an anime with all comedy, action, and lovable characters! This anime is about the Adventures of the “Joestar Family,” and it's fantastic main characters in each season.


You start off with Part 1: Phantom Blood which takes place in the 1880s in the U.K. with Jonathon Joestar and his adopted but foe of a brother, Dio Brando, who plans nothing but evil for his faith. Dio and Jonathon’s rivalry then grows stronger as the episodes soon end with the next generations to come. Currently, there are only five parts animated, and the sixth part is still updating episodes following the main character of Jolyne Kujo.


Episodes can be found on VRV, Crunchyroll, and other anime platforms. I definitely recommend the manga and anime. The art style and characters are so amazing you are guaranteed to fall in love!!
