10: Jobless Reincarnation
For: Fanservice, Adventure, Imaginary World building, and Isekai Lovers
While there’s no shortage of best Isekai anime, I have picked Jobless Reincarnation anime for its average-paced storyline, funny humor, and admirable animations. If you’re a fan of funny protagonists, acceptable fan service, and detailed world-building, there’s no anime like Jobless Reincarnation for you.
Synopsis: Jobless Reincarnation tells the story of a 37-year-old unemployed man who is reincarnated in another world as a child after dying in an accident.

Viewers watch as he grows up showing remarkable magical talent, but also faces challenges navigating relationships and dealing with trauma from his past life.
9: Heavenly Delusion
For: Mystery, Unique Art Style and Action Lovers
My biggest complaint with mystery anime is always related to its slow pacing which kind of sucks. If you’re a mystery lover who also hates slow pacing, Heavenly Delusion is an action-packed mystery anime with a unique art style. I bet this new gen anime will remain for a long time in the heads of beginners.
Synopsis: Heavenly Delusion revolves around a complex storyline of Maru and Kiruko, two strange kids who are looking for a place called “Heaven”. The story is set in dystopian Japan where civilization has collapsed and man-eating monsters lurk everywhere. Though there is a special story behind these monsters you’ll have to check on your own in this newgen anime which is a roller coaster mystery for beginners.
8: Dr. Stone
For: Dystopian World, Sci-Fi and Adventure Lovers
After watching so many anime set in dystopian worlds, I have not seen an anime like Dr.Stone that deeply explores dystopian landscapes. Dr.Stone is a remarkable mixture of science and the stone age. The good thing is, that this anime is not just revolve around science and stuff, it has crazy wars and fights serving the best action.
Synopsis: Dr. Stone follows high school scientist Senku Ishigami who finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world where all of humanity has been petrified. Over thousands of years, civilization has collapsed. With his friend Taiju, Senku devotes himself to restoring modern life through science.
7: Skip and Loafer
For: Seinen Romance Storyline and Self Discovery Lovers
Honestly, I am a bigger fan of romance than action anime and already have watched more than 100 romance shows. From old to new, I can surely declare Skip and Loafer one of the best modern-day romance anime with a seinen but lighter storyline.
Synopsis: Naive country girl Mitsumi dreams of making an impact in the big city. But when she arrives in towering Tokyo for college, she finds the concrete jungle overwhelming. Lost in the frenetic activity, will she succumb to the dangers of urban life alone? Enter Shima, a thoughtful classmate who takes the rural ingenue under his wing. This is one of the best new gen romance anime for beginners to watch.

If you’re a fan of nonstop comedy there is no competition of Spy X Family anime. Stylish visuals depict high-stakes missions and heartwarming family moments alike. Beneath the laughs lies a heartwarming story of an unconventional family slowly bonding.

However, Anya has telepathy powers and soon discovers Twilight’s real secret profession. To maintain his cover, Twilight also ‘marries’ assassin Yor who has secrets of her own. Together this makeshift family gets into hilarious hijinks as they try to conceal their identities from each other while forming genuine bonds.

After watching “To Your Eternity”, I was quite sure that no anime in near future can pass this anime in a thought-provoking & unique plot but the recently released drama fantasy “Frieren: Beyond Journey’s End” has proved me wrong. Believe me, its first episode is super fast-paced and will you hit damn hard with its melody and sequences. If you’re a mature dude looking for a thought-provoking storyline, this anime is for you.

On a personal journey of self-discovery, will traveling the peaceful realm help her unravel these profound questions and uncover new insights into mortality’s lessons?
4: Shangri-La Frontier
For: Game World Isekai, Action and Vibrantly Fluid Animation Lovers
I have watched many Isekai shows based on game worlds and dungeon explorations, and honestly, it’s always annoying to watch bright slide shows in the name of action. Recently released Shangri-La Frontier has set the bar too high for others to compete with it in terms of quality animations and isekai world explorations. It’s a 25 episodes thriller new gen anime for beginners to truly enjoy the VR world and it comes without harem or ecchi elements.

2: Demon Slayer
For: Adventure Storyline, Lovely Characters, Action and Demons Anime Lovers
With its binge-worthy cast and crazy good vibrant animations, the Demon Slayer anime has set the bar too high for other animes to compete. For me, there are three main reasons to include this anime in the list of new gen anime for beginners—top-notch animations, a storyline that anyone can follow, and its diverse characters.
Synopsis: Demon Slayer follows Tanjiro Kamado, a kindhearted boy who becomes a demon slayer after his family is slaughtered and his younger sister Nezuko is turned into a demon. Tanjiro undergoes training to master his breathing techniques in order to turn Nezuko human again and defeat the demons behind the killings. He is joined by friends like the fiery swordsman Zenitsu and the puzzling Inosuke. Currently, there are just three seasons and a lot of story remains to cover.
