The supernatural and the intellectual collide when high school prodigy Light Yagami stumbles upon a “Death Note,” a mysterious notebook that kills anyone whose name is written on its cursed pages. Beyond its premise, the show shines in its plot, pitting its boy genius-antihero against a formidable world-class detective known only as “L.”

 Neon Genesis Evangelion(as it is called by fans) has all the pinings of a conventional “hero’s journey” – 14-year-old boy turns out to be supernaturally-gifted (in this case, at piloting a giant robot), ends up chosen to save the world – the anime is actually a repudiation of genre tropes.

, there was  Death Note  – and before watching Netflix’s western adaptation, we recommend watching the short but iconic 2006 anime. The supernatural and the intellectual collide when high school prodigy Light Yagami stumbles upon a “Death Note,” a mysterious notebook that kills anyone whose name is written on its cursed pages. Beyond its premise, the show shines in its plot, pitting its boy genius-antihero against a formidable world-class detective known only as “L.” Neon Genesis Evangelion Possibly the most head trippy of the classics is  Neon Genesis Evangelion While  Eva  (as it is called by fans) has all the pinings of a conventional “hero’s journey” – 14-year-old boy turns out to be supernaturally-gifted (in this case, at piloting a giant robot), ends up chosen to save the world – the anime is actually a repudiation of genre tropes. Evangelion  is a rumination on what is the cost of world-saving. In the anime, not everyone can pilot the giant titular EVA units. So when young Shinji Ikari shows exceptional skill, he is essentially forced to be a child soldier, even though it’s against his will. The anime goes into heavy territory – talking about PTSD and depression, parental trauma, and even the existence of God amid an impending and cruel apocalypse. Add to this a surreal and often dreamlike visual language, especially towards the show’s end, and it’s understandable how the  Neon Genesis Evangelion  can be equal parts an illuminating, almost religious experience, as well as a frustrating one. (PSA: the two-part finale of the original anime can get particularly surreal and hard to penetrate. Luckily, Netflix also has  The End of Evangelion,  virtually a film that serves as a more straightforward finale to the series.) UP-AND-COMERS Perhaps the most gripping anime in recent years,  Attack on Titan  is an artful mix of fantasy and suspense. It takes place in a secluded “steampunk” civilization that lives in fear of “titans,” or human-eating giants. Destined to avenge his mother, protagonist Eren joins the military’s elite titan-fighting unit, sending him along a winding rollercoaster of twists, death, and conspiracies. One-Punch Man In the discourse of pop culture, a question often asked is, how do you make a character who’s too powerful still compelling? It’s a dilemma that many have posited as to why heroes such as Superman and Captain Marvel fail to find an audience and have mediocre films that often resort to “depowering” as a narrative device just to give them a bit of challenge. One-Punch Man  takes a different approach to this dilemma; it faces the question head-on in a meta-textual fashion.  One-Punch Man  is about the comedic adventures of Saitama, the eponymous hero, and the banality of his existence as a hero who could literally win every battle with just one punch. My Hero Academia Another shounen manga adaptation,  My Hero Academia  is one of the hottest titles today. In a world where superpowers, or “quirks,” are common, a powerless Deku sets on a journey to become a great superhero. His unflinching courage earns him a spot at a top superhero academy, kicking off a fantastical high school drama along the lines of the  Harry Potter
