Written by on April 18, 2020 in Entertainment with 0 Comments

It is undeniable how Japanese animation, also known as anime, has become quite popular today. But, it has been a boom even in the late 70s and 80s like Astro Boy and Speed Racer. In the 90s, anime ruled the world with Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and many others. In these modern times, the world still does not get enough of anime. Vampire anime is on the rise like the show Hellsing with its imaginative world, unique style of storytelling, and quirky characters.

If you still need some push, the following are good reasons to start watching anime now:

There is no cancellation of the series

When it comes to anime, you no longer have to worry about the cancellation of the series you are watching. Hellsing, One Piece, Fairy Tail, and Pokemon are only some of the popular anime that is showing no indication of stopping. While there are shows that do end like Naruto and Dragon Ball Z, they left hundreds of episodes for their viewers. Usually, anime does not pull out the rug from its fans that watch a series.

Characters Die in Anime

When you are watching anime such as the show Hellsing, know that all bets are off. It is normal to see characters die in the series, whether they are good or bad; this is also the general concept of most anime series. In Transformers, the animation was full of a massacre that a lot of characters die, including the well-loved Optimus Prime. Also, in Sailor Moon, more and more characters die as the series progresses.

In other words, no one is safe in the world of anime, which is probably a factor why people are addicted to watching them.

The Majority of Anime Is Free to Watch and Enjoy

Even though you can watch many anime shows on Blu-ray or DVD, did you know that it is possible to watch them for free? You can find a lot of streaming services online and watch your favorite long-running series for days on end. With your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or computer, it is easy to catch up on anime series at no cost. It is also an excellent way to introduce anime to someone who has not watched a show yet and would like to give it a try.

It Shows the Dark Side of Humanity

Aside from the entertainment, positivity, soundtracks, and romance, you will see the ugly side of people in anime. The anime show you watch may deal with violence, abuse, death threats, madness, tragedy, or pain. It can show the situation in the grittiest places out there and the dangers they hide. You will learn how corruption and too much power can ruin a society. The anime industry sprinkles these dark lessons, which, admittedly, can be hard to swallow.

Also, in the show Hellsing and other vampire anime, you learn the fear of mankind in creatures lurking in the dark. You cannot see them coming, so you are gripped with fear. After all, vampires look like humans. You do not know what to expect of a vampire because some of these monsters wish to become human while other vampires see you as their next meal.

Watching anime is an adventure. You learn a lot of things as you continue to watch it. Considering there are numerous of them, you will never run out of anime to watch and things to learn.
