Banana Fish

Starting off our list of the best anime of 2018, Banana Fish is based on a phenomenal drama manga series, and while the anime version of the show does make some small changes it’s still packed with drama and tense moments. The show tells the story of Ash Lynx, a runaway brought up and abused by the crime lord “Papa” Dino Golzine. When a disastrous secret falls into Golzine’s hands, Ash meets a pure-hearted young photographer named Eiji Okamura, and their fates begin to change.

The biggest change for the anime comes with its setting, now taking place in a modern New York City. The anime comes from the same studio responsible for Yuri on Ice, and the director of Free! The animation quality is quite good, and the subject matter is brutal, emotional, and mature. The relationship between the two main leads is absolutely fascinating, and it’s easily one of the most gripping narratives of the year.

If you’re looking for a good drama, look no further than Banana Fish which is available exclusively on Amazon. It was a no brainer to add onto our best anime of 2018 post.

Best Anime of 2018 (Must Watch Anime)

Violet Evergarden

Violet Evergarden‘s charm doesn’t rely much on words. It’s a soft-spoken show that lets its animation and art style consume you instead. Protagonist Violet bears little to no clue as to how to interact act with the world around her now that a long war has finally ended. She knows nothing but pain and suffering, yet her universe almost always tells her that there’s much more to life than that, as it’s hard not to notice the beautiful sun gleaming through the window of the post office and the marvelous waves of water that push by feet walking on the sand.

It’s a show that certainly isn’t for everyone. It’s pacing is very slow and deliberate, and Violet can sometimes feel as if she lacks too much heart, despite being a robot. The supporting cast and overarching story feel bland and generic from the outset, though once viewers get past episode 3, they’ll definitely see the show pick up the pace.

You won’t find the spectacle of Attack of Titan or Gurren Lagann in Violet Evergarden, but the thrill of seeing something come to life before your eyes is definitely there. That’s why it was a must have in this best anime of 2018 list.
