Teen Guest Blog – Hot or Not Part II: Manga/Anime 

By Niko 

Heya, heya! It’s me again, back with a hot anime list. These five mainstream anime and/or manga are worth the hype, in my opinion. Just because other mainstream anime isn’t on this list doesn’t mean I don’t like it! In fact, there are many more that I could add to this list if I had the space. Again, this is my opinion and not necessarily the one held by the library staff, and not one that you need to hold either. And with that disclaimer let’s get into the list. 

The Promised Neverland, by Kaiu Shirai 

This dark anime/manga is definitely worth your time if you like dark themes and demons. However, it isn’t for everyone so watch/read at your own discretion! 

Food Wars!: Shokugeki no Soma, by Yuto Tsukuda 

This elite culinary school anime/manga is full of funny moments and largerthanlife characters (also delicious looking food). This is a must watch/read for every foodie out there.  

Ouran High School Host Club, by Bisco Hatori 

This is a romcom that many consider a classic anime, even though it’s not THAT old. It’s a lot like any romance of that style, many boys, overwhelming personalities, and rich kids. But it’s got qualities that separate it from others like it.

Demon Slayer, by Koyoharu Gotouge 

Demon Slayer is a fastpaced action anime about a boy and his quest to kill all the demons to avenge his family. Except…he doesn’t have any idea how to kill a demon or how to fight at all. He goes through a lot of training and works his way up the demon corps and meets some “unique” personalities on the way.  

Assassination Classroom, by Yusei Matsui 

This wacky classroom isn’t taught by a human but a tentacled monster from who knows where! The government has informed the students that their job is to assassinate this monster before he destroys the earth! But the question is….can they do it?
