Anime is the Japanese animation phenomenon that has quickly gained popularity in recent years. There are a variety of shows out there with many different art styles and storylines; if you’re brand new to anime it can get overwhelming. In this week’s Brookwood Blog, we’ve got a short list of anime that you can watch to get you started on this trend.

Sword Art Online

What would you do if you were stuck in a virtual reality video game and dying in the game meant dying in real life? In order to get out, players have to clear 100 floors of the game’s dungeon. Kirito, an avid video gamer, finds himself in that exact situation and has to find his way out. Will he beat the game? Sword Art Online can be found on Netflix and Hulu. There are multiple seasons with different storylines, so we encourage you to check it out!


Having been one of the most popular Anime in recent years, Naruto has been a staple for many anime lovers. Naruto dives into the world of ninjas focusing heavily on the title character Naruto, a young orphan who is shunned by his village because he had a magical beast sealed within him when he was born. Watch as he struggles to find his place in his village and gains acceptance by the people who once shunned him.

One-Punch Man

Many superheroes struggle with handling their powers. Many find themselves seeking great strength to overcome deadly enemies. Saitama doesn’t have to face either of these this challenges. Join Saitama in his difficult journey in becoming a hero, even though he’s capable of winning every fight with just one punch. One-Punch Man is a hilarious look at a series having an overpowered main character. The series only has one season that’s only 12 episodes long. Don’t binge too fast.
