BLOG: A top five list! Shonen Anime! Ready… Fight!!!

It seems lists are pretty popular on the interwebs so here I go for a second round of my list. But this time its Shonen anime titles who will be the strongest and defeat the others to come out on top. Get ready for explosive action and super power ups!
#5-Gundam Wing
Gundam Wing is a Mecha anime with a great political undertone with great action scenes. One of the first anime I remember watching that the story was just as good as the action.
#4-Bleach
Bleach is a fantastic action anime with a solid story. I know I might get some WTF’s from people because its number four but the next three in my mind are just a bit better
#3-Naruto
Naruto has taken over in my mind as the premiere action/fighting anime. The story is great when it’s not being dragged down by crappy filler episodes but it is still a great show.
#2-Rurouni Kenshin
Ah kenshin is great but just like Naruto it fell into the filler crap but unlike Naruto the filler killed the anime series after three seasons. The manga to this date is one of my favorite written stories I have ever read which is why it comes in at number two.
Now for the number one if you don’t know what it is you should probably stop watching anime and go do something else with your time. Drum roll please….
#1-Dragonball Z
Dragonball is the definition of a shonen title. With over the top fight scenes with crazy powers and total destruction. Everything a boy or a man wants to see in an anime or for that matter a movie. Dragonball Z got many people hooked on anime when the cartoon network broadcasted it on toonami. I have an undying love for Dragonball Z and it will always be one of my favorite shows. Filler be damned!
So there it is a list for the ages now let’s see who goes super saiyan first and tries to come after me for leaving off one of there shows. Just remember my power level is over 9000!!!
