Here’s what you can learn from some of the best anime out there:
Nana is a slice-of-life anime that is almost 47 episodes long and it is a wonderful series. Nana follows the story of Nana Osaki and Nana Komatsu, two girls with the same name yet entirely opposite personalities. It is also a complete coincidence when both Nanas start living together and eventually end up being friends.
Nana Osaki is an independent and headstrong girl that is passionate about her career as a musician. Nana Komatsu is a naïve and simple girl that wants to move in with her boyfriend and is dependent on those who love her.
In this anime, you get to see the reality of growing up and how complex the real world can be. Both Nanas face a different set of struggles. Nana Osaki gets together with her ex-boyfriend but can’t help the jealousy she has of her boyfriend’s band’s popularity. Additionally, she struggles with her boyfriend’s drug addiction as well.
Nana Komatsu, on the other hand, breaks up with her boyfriend and starts going out with a bassist from Nana Osaki’s boyfriend’s band and gets pregnant unexpectedly. As one problem after another arises, both Nanas learn the importance of friendship and how to deal with their problems.
Bungo Stray Dogs
Bungo Stray Dogs is an action, mystery, and crime anime that teaches you the importance of teamwork. Oftentimes, as adults, we forget to rely on or choose to do everything ourselves. Whether it is a small task like cleaning your home or a big one like handling a work project, we try to do it all ourselves. Whether we do this to avoid interaction with others due to social anxiety, or we don’t like being dependent, whatever the reason, it’s not healthy.
In this anime, we see people with different abilities, some powerful and some tactical. Whatever each one’s powers, every situation requires a different sort of response, and all of them have to work together to get there. Clearly, everyone has a different skill set and a different idea of the situation, but the way they effectively handle the situation when working together should teach us something about teamwork.
One Piece is a popular anime that is still ongoing and there is more than one lesson to be learned from this anime. Here, we will talk about one particular lesson, which is that you can always improve and learn from your past experiences.
A lot of the time, we think that we have tried hard enough the first few times and nothing will change if we keep trying. This is not 100% true, obviously. Trying, again and again, is not wrong, but if you don’t change anything as compared to the last time, then you aren’t really improving or learning anything.
To improve and learn something, you need to step back, analyze what you’re doing, and change the way you do it. Identify your mistakes and make improvements where needed and try again. In this anime, this is the one thing that you see consistently. The protagonist, Luffy, and his friends are all struggling initially as rookie pirates, but with time, they learn to fight and get back on their feet with every defeat.
All in All,
Which anime stood out the most to you? While some of these anime are generally light-hearted and easy to watch like Haikyuu!! and One Piece, some of them are much more realistic and tackle a bit darker themes like Nana. Overall, they are all pretty good in their own ways and they all make for great entertainment. So, which one are you watching first? Is it one from this list or another that piqued your interest online? We’d love to know what you picked and what lesson you were able to learn from it!
