Top anime of 2019 are

5. Mob Psycho 100 (season 2)

The second season of Mob Psycho 100 features the same plot elements we know and love from season 1. Mob is a young boy who is a powerful esper, and his master, Reigen, is a fake psychic who runs psychic consultation business and uses Mob to fix the issues he can’t. Mob knows he shouldn’t use his powers to hurt people, but when he’s pushed too hard emotionally, he snaps and unleashes an uncontrollable amount of energy.

This season finds Mob facing more powerful enemies with much higher stakes, but the message remains the same: empathy for other people is a much stronger power than ESP. Studio Bones (Soul Eater, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) does a great job animating both the show’s fight scenes and tamer, heartwarming bits.

4. Kaguya-sama: Love is War

Kaguya is the hilarious story of what happens when two students in love are too stubborn to confess to each other. Each episode shows the student council president, Miyuki Shirogane, and his VP, Kaguya Shinomiya, trying to get the other one to express interest through a series of mind games.

3. Demon Slayer

There’s no shortage of good anime about demons, or people who use katanas to kill things. Demon Slayer joins the ranks of those shows with a premise so simple ... well, it’s the show’s entire title. But where the series sets itself apart is through beautiful animation and the way that it constantly walks the line between horror and action.

2. Fire Force

Putting out fires is a firefighters job, but fighting the demons that cause fires is the Fire Force’s job. Shinra Kusakabe is a new recruit to the team and he’s searching for the one who started the fire that took his mom and brother away from him.

1. Vinland Saga

Vinland Saga is an anime about Vikings. Not, like, space-vikings or anything like that — just regular, real-life vikings. The show follows a young viking named Thorfinn, loosely based on a real viking, as he navigates the harsh Scandinavian environment and the precarious waters of the Atlantic.
