Best action anime

This list is for all the anime fans who love action Anime, and on this list, you will see the best action anime.

This list will include anime series and movies because many anime series have their own movies.

There are Anime which you already know, like my hero academia, one punch man, seven deadly sins and many more, so just enjoy.


Naruto taught us a valuable lesson when we were young: never give up. It’s as simple as that. Unfortunately, due to its simplicity, many young boys may grasp the notion and follow in his footsteps as industrious individuals who do not give up easily.

Aside from that, the narrative is standard Bleach fare. However, this is due to the fact that we have already acquired our tastes, and as a result. So we tend to underestimate Naruto as we grow older. That’s all right.
Even the naruto filler is far superior to many other anime episodes, and the films are fantastic.

After the naruto series, there comes Naruto Shippuden came out, and it’s the biggest hot and trending Anime in the anime world.

Shippuden is about when all naruto characters became teenagers and started going on bigger missions.

The storyline is really great, and it has everything you need in Anime. It has every type of Anime.

And recently, in boruto, we saw the best fighting and action animation when naruto goes to Bryon mode.


A train runs over Kei Kurono. His body is obviously ruined, yet he awakens in a modest flat.

Others in the room are as perplexed as he is, and they are all fixated on the dark black sphere that floats in the room’s centre.

The orb informs them that they are dead. It armours them and sends them out into the Earth as spiritual beings to hunt out extraterrestrial intruders.

If they obtain 100 points, though, rebirth becomes a possibility.

33-Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress

The Kabane are scary zombie-like monsters with iron-encased hearts that can only be pierced to kill them. After his city is overtaken, Ikoma joins a reinforced iron train with some new companions in pursuit of a safer location.

The animation is the game’s key selling feature, with continually moving camera angles emphasising the fast-paced action.

It gets strange at the end, but there’s a sequel film in the works to fix its shortcomings!

32-Megalo Box

Megalo Box follows the narrative of Junk Dog. An underground fighter who desires to win the Megalonia tournament and become the best Megalo Boxer alive. Channelling the renowned Ashita no Joe’s spirit into a futuristic industrial era.

The combatants are outfitted with robotic limbs and light armour. Resulting in heated battles with genuine stakes.

Megalo Box presents a compact plot without much fluff, with animation and graphics harkening back to classical 90s AnimeAnime and unique hip-hop electronic music.

31-Black Lagoon

The crew of the Black Lagoon is a motley gang of mercenaries who are only in it for the money. Yet their ties bond them together.

When Rokurou Okajima, a well-mannered businessman. Adopts the alias ‘Rok’ and joins the gang. As he is drawn into a world of violence, corruption, and greed, his life is flipped entirely upside down.

A world where it’s typical to watch a boat speed up a ramp before crashing into a helicopter.

Black Lagoon is a film that embodies Michael Bay’s spectacular action while also balancing decent characters and a fast-paced plot.

You will enjoy this Anime if you like cowboy bebop and other gang-fighting anime series. Where a gang of bad guys take on even worse bad guys in a criminally ignored action film, you’ll enjoy this.


Kei Nagai realises he’s an Ajin — an immortal monster targeted by humans for their innate evolutionary dominance – after being hit by a truck and not dying.

Nagai is on the run immediately away. Avoiding even people, he loves for fear of being turned in for the bounty.

Soon after, he meets Satou, a gun-wielding extreme terrorist who is also an Ajin who is desperate for humanity to acknowledge their inadequacy in the face of violence.

Studio Polygon Pictures’ hybridised CGI approach has gotten a lot of flak, but I adore it.

This, along with outstanding sound design that correctly portrays the weight and damage on screen, results in a dramatic Hollywood experience that is rarely seen in AnimeAnime. So it’s definitely worth a look.

29-Tokyo Ghoul

The Anime is about a high school student living an ordinary life turned into a ghoul.

Tokyo Ghouls is one of the darkest action anime with a great story. Personally, I really like the characters and the Anime because it is very new in the anime community, the power, and the modification.

The main character of the Anime is Kaneki, who is shy not outgoing. Still, When the lovely Rize Kamishiro takes an interest in him because of his intellectual hobbies and quiet demeanour, he gets the shock of his life. Oh, and as she tries to devour him mercilessly. However, he dies in the process.

The surgeons perform the emergency treatment. Transplanting Rize’s organs to Ken and imbuing him with Ghoul-like powers. Thereby turning him into a vampiric creature who feeds on human flesh.

Unfortunately, Tokyo Ghoul’s subsequent seasons fall short of the first.


Destitute humanity and strong magic users coexist in Hole’s dilapidated and unfriendly region.

Kaiman is a crocodile-headed, towering, gloomy creature. He wasn’t born this way, though. And he’s on the lookout for the man who kidnapped his body, memories, and, eventually, his identity.

The heads will be removed, the faces will be separated from the skulls, and the arms will be detached from the shoulders, at its best, action.

Dorohedoro is both colourful and dull, and it’s charmingly unnerving.

The audience is given a similar sense of macabre curiosity through the blend of 3D and drawn animation and character designs evocative of Akira.

27-Vinland Saga

Thorfinn, who was fascinated by tales of sailors and warriors as a boy, is thrust into a world of violence and evil after witnessing his father’s death.

Thorfinn will have to discover that the search for retribution comes at a high price throughout the course of the available 24-episodes (often referred to as only the prologue to a larger plot by ardent manga fans).

Vinland Saga is one of the most realistic and one of the best action anime

However, learning this the hard way necessitates a great deal of killing and violence. Isn’t that interesting?

Studio Wit’s ferocious energy is evident in this historical shounen manga based on Vikings. Even though this is only the opening, it is a wonderful narrative of retribution and parenthood in and of itself.

26-Knights of Sidonia

Nagata Tanikaze is unaware of the large-scale cosmic battle between humans and the extraterrestrial Gauna since she is stowed on board a collection of spacecraft floating throughout space.

But he quickly realises that the cloned residents of Sidonia are the species’ only survivors. And he might be the guy who saves them from extinction.

The gorgeously 3D animated mecha conflicts are set against the vastness of space, which serves as magnificent background. And the ideal resting place for someone who a Gauna has enslaved.

Knights of Sidonia is a unique anime in terms of plot and world design. It’s dark, violent, and recognisable.

25-The Tower of God

Tower of God, which was recently finished, is the first animated webtoon! As a consequence, I’m overjoyed that they picked one of the best.

This Anime outperformed the webtoon in every aspect, with a unique and rugged graphic style and a piece of electronic symphonic music that gave each fight enormous weight.

Oh, and there are a lot of quarrels!

Even if it means betraying, assassinating, or colluding in the process.

Bam is adamant about getting to the edge of the cliff, no matter what it takes. Instead, he joins forces with a few other determined people to make the ascent a little easier. And our tale picks up from there.

Character designs range from gigantic pillow monsters to a giant lizard guy, and the action is fast and well-drawn.


Akira is a timeless masterpiece. From beginning to end, this Anime is the best action anime.

Set against Neo-gaudy Tokyo’s, there’s gang violence, psychokinetic plots, and a government masquerade. Yet attractive settings are all set against a backdrop of gang violence psychokinetic conspiracies.

And a government ruse that might once again destroy the city and murder the majority of the population. The plot is dense, but let’s concentrate on the action.

Each picture is meticulously created to produce a complex and vibrant flipbook of explosions and devastation.

Every second will be distinct and fluid, whether it’s a motorcycle wreck or a monster evolving.

It’s no surprise that since its premiere in 1988. It’s spawned a slew of AnimeAnime.


Parasyte is action anime with a sci-fi genre but trusts me, it has action-packed scenes, and that’s why I put this on the action anime list.

On the other hand, his hand now has eyes, a mouth, and a personality. But, oh. That’s unfortunate, but one can always adjust, right?

No, since more animals nearby have completed their goal and are eager to destroy them both.

Never before has a body horror film been so unabashedly action-oriented.

Shinichi’s gruesome, life-threatening clashes with his foes are accompanied by a killer dubstep soundtrack and storyline revisions that try to modernise the 1989 horror manga.

Shinichi is thrust into a violent environment, which has severe ramifications.

22-Land of the Lustrous

Even 3D-anime sceptics were surprised by Studio Orange’s 2017 anime. Suggesting that the technique has a place in an otherwise crowded industry.

Because the Land of the Lustrous is lovely.

It’s entertaining to watch, with a cast of well-defined characters who must each face their own demons in the never-ending war between their species (a strange gem-based lifeform) and the Lunarians, who want to harvest their bodies for their beauty.

You’ll be clenching your teeth and waiting for the next episode to begin during some of the set-piece action scenes.

It’s exciting, well-choreographed, and features some of the greatest cinematography ever seen in an anime TV programme.

21-One-Punch Man

Do you think Goku is one of the most powerful heroes in AnimeAnime? Let me tell you, Saitama can beat Goku. But still, it is a debate because we haven’t seen Saitama’s full power, so let’s hope we will see his full power.

This Anime follows a warrior who beats his opponents with a single punch and has some of the decade’s most impressive and meticulously animated battle sequences.

The second season of the Anime takes a step back. However, the first season remains one of the most amusing and engaging storylines in Anime. As a result, it more than compensates.

One punch man is really all over google and youtube, and even you can see the ads of one punch man. It is one of the best action anime.

20-Sword of the Stranger

For reasons he doesn’t understand, the Ming Dynasty suddenly attacks the juvenile orphan Kotarou and his dog in Sengoku-Japan.

They come upon the lone samurai Nanashi, who agrees to be Kotarou’s protector.

The voyage through a bygone Japan that follows is brutal and well-choreographed. To bring Kotarou to where he needs to go, he must face opponent after opponent.

The final bout, in particular, is A-class sakuga stuff.

Each sword swing, each facial expression is expressed through visceral animation in a well-realised setting that frequently acts as an obstacle or weapon in the fight.


Meanwhile, in Edo-Japan, Shichika Yasuri trains an old sword-fighting method that he has developed into his own distinct style.

He can wield his body as a sword, focusing his blows to a razor’s edge before hitting.

Soon, he’ll be pitted against twelve more opponents. The twelve Deviant Blades for the enigmatic Togame chose to journey with Shichika in order to reclaim their weapons.

Katanagatari is a compact yet straightforward narrative done in a very specific way. With a unique style, excellent humour, and some brilliant character development.

It’s gone out of style and isn’t very well-known. So many people don’t know about this Anime because it’s never had much-hyped but trust me, this is one of the best action anime series you will see in the anime world.

The action situations are constantly shifting, with the higher ground changing many times throughout a single encounter.

And the magnificent trip is worth it in the end.

18-Hellsing Ultimate

Hellsing Ultimate combines and magnifies everything from the original Hellsing as well as the manga source material.

Ten episodes, each lasting less than an hour, depict a bizarre and gruesome tale of vampirism and survival.

The blood is copious, and the battle is littered with amputations and horrible acts of depravity. Bloodshed and fast action are two things that Hellsing Ultimate enjoys.


Nerv is an organisation tasked with defending mankind from Angels with the help of the Evangelion, a massive machine capable of combating them.

These anime ads many genres into it, it can be a sci-fi anime series or series wherein Anime you can customise your air gear and do its services, and that’s a great sign for any anime, where they are protecting the existence of humanity.

Nerv is led by Gendou Ikari. Who orders youngsters who can synchronise with Evangelion to battle for the sake of the Earth.

Shinji, his estranged son, is summoned to meet with him. The youngster has no idea that his father has bigger plans than just a meet and greet.

Philosophical in nature, psychoanalytic in nature, and action-oriented in nature. 

The group of people trying to save Earth from the attack of the villain group, and that’s where most anime fans take an interest in.

It’s one of the first classic anime actions about mecha. Which are the robot and robot fighting genres, and trust me, it is way better than recent mecha anime even. 

The animation is way better nowadays still. This Anime is one of the best mecha action anime, and it will stay a classic one forever. 

16-Devilman- Crybaby

Devilman is a short anime series with only 1 season and some weird animation that many people will not like.

Because it does have a not strong story, there is a lot of action. Still, it’s not like with sword and all. It’s not also purely devil. And if you are up to 18+ then only watch. So it’s not right to watch for those kids who are not 18+ because there are lots of disturbing things and sex, nudity which is for adults only and the storyline is not an easy one to watch. 

So many people didn’t like the animation and anime toh it was okay by me, not very good or very bad. Still, the action was good, and I hope another season is tough to say. They should consider the story more than just random stuff.

15-Kill la Kill

It is a story about a son doing everything to avenge his father’s death by the killer.

She attacks Honnouji Academy’s gates. Swearing war on the school’s council president, Satsuki Kiryuuin, before being demolished and fleeing.

The music is peppy, the diverse characters and the storyline is always positive.

The graphics, as well as gorgeous Hiroyuki Sawano music. With its numerous genre and stylings, it rivals the finest of his discography.

14-Mob Psycho 100

One-Punch Man, ONE’s manga, may have helped him get recognition. But it’s his less well-known work that truly shines.

Mob Psycho is just as funny and absurd as its older brother, but it isn’t afraid to go to the core of the matter.

The character writing in this film is excellent and heartfelt, and it works well with the comedy.

But there’s also some of Sakuga’s most tolerable action to date. It’s huge in size, with punches launching individuals hundreds of miles away. The psychokinetic powers that rule the storey are also given a unique flavour.

What makes MP100 so dynamic is the weight and power sensed via the manufacturing quality.

The soundtrack and voice acting provide the proper emotional impact with each punch, kick, or scream.

Oh, and unlike OPM, the second season of Mob Psycho 100 improves on the first in every aspect.

13-JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

The first thing you will notice in Jojo is the animation. It’s really good and

It’s difficult to talk about Jojo because there are so many different parts and plots to examine. As a result, I’ll provide you with an oversimplified explanation. 

It’s not meant to criticise the Anime. But it does underline Jojo’s legendary status. Whether it’s the action sequences or the discussions, Jojo has always delivered a fantastic storey for each section.

The series is action-packed with some martial arts, fight, hunter.

If you don’t have much time, then only I will suggest you not to watch, and if you still want to watch, you will have to keep going for so long because it is a huge series not bigger than Naruto or a never-ending piece still it is long series.

I really love the stardust crusaders story.

12-Cowboy Bebop

The story is about mainly the post-apocalyptic world and an action-packed series.

Shinichiro Watanabe enjoys combining musical genres (and what they symbolise) to develop unique formulae.

Cowboy Bebop is classic textas style anime series. Even Netflix recreated the film, combining science fiction, westerns, and bebop jazz to create an emotional journey through the lives of the central protagonists.

Each episode is unique and engaging. But the sad tale is broken up by a crescendo of action provided by some really well-animated action set pieces.

It confronts indifference and nihilism without detracting from the pace or flow of the event, concluding in a successful swansong dive from the tower of excellent AnimeAnime into the pool of masterpieces.

11-Samurai Champloo

When the breakdance-styled warrior Mugen and the stiff aristocratic samurai Jim accidentally demolish her business, Fuu Kasumi loses her employment as a waitress.

Fortunately, she gets them excused — in exchange, and she asks that they escort her in her search for a samurai who smells like sunflowers.

This series also shows some hip hop culture with martial arts and sword fighting action anime scenes.

Only because of its tighter concentration on the action – something Bebop had nearly achieved – does it rank higher.

I really like samurai Champloo because it is action-packed Anime.

10-Gurren Lagann

This Anime is one of the best action anime I have seen because the whole Anime is more of action rather than emotional.

Simon and Kamina, our heroes, are ready to escape the underground shelter where mankind has been hiding for aeons.

This Anime is action-packed, and it does have some great fighting scenes. It does also customise its space crafts, and because of that, it became one of the best action anime. Struggle that blew the door open on what we believed the medium could achieve.

Gurren Lagann understands how to deliver action in spades if you’re looking for it. Please have a look at this one.

9-Samurai feat Trust and Betrayal

Watch it only if you have less time and want something you can watch very fast with lots of fight and action.

However, you do not need to watch the younger, lengthier brother appreciate this.

This is a gorgeous yet understated tale of death and regret.

From his terrible youth until his adolescent years, we follow the vanished samurai Kenshin Himura.

It demonstrates how, after years of unrelenting slaughter, he chose the road of pacifism.

The soundtrack and ambience symbolise philosophy and ideology with action scenes that are distinctively executed to take full use of passion and a rapid conclusion.

8-Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

This is one of the best Anime ever, and I know I said this before for other Anime but trust me, if you want to watch thrilling action, emotions, great stories, fights, then these Anime have it all, and it is just out fantastic. 

The story is about two brothers who want to bring back their mother with magic, but Bizzare happens, the younger brother loses his body, and the other brother loses his arm and leg. 

You’ve probably heard this a thousand times if you’ve seen the show.

As a result of their transformation failures, Ed’s left leg and Alphonse’s body were kidnapped.

The Fullmetal Alchemist team continues their search for the Philosopher’s Stone, which has the potential to undo the Law of Equivalent Exchange and return their bodies to their previous condition. You’ll probably appreciate this series if you’re interested in mysticism, alchemy, the occult, or anything similar.

7-Attack on Titan

Mankind has collected in one Germanic civilisation ringed by multiple walls on the edge of destruction.

This is how you survive on a planet filled with gigantic zombie-like monsters with kaiju-like powers.

Eren Jaeger and his companions lose everything when a massive giant is far larger than the walls bursting a breach in their defences releasing an army of titans into their stronghold.

It has soaring camera movements that, in combination with Hiroyuki Sawano’s outstanding music, produce a constant flow of excitement and expectation.

Please enjoy the journey – and avoid spoilers, as things will quickly shift to a whole new upgraded experience.

6-Hunter x Hunter

It tells the storey of Gon Freecs, a little kid who fled his small island in quest of his long-lost father. However, Gon’s quest is challenging, and he must overcome all obstacles in order to see his father.

Due to its many similarities, HxH is commonly compared to Fullmetal Alchemist.

The comedy has a philosophical tone to it and a fighting system that emphasises intelligence overpower. And, because they’re all so good, choosing one over the other is solely a question of personal preference.


Gintama has hundreds of episodes spanning a variety of genres. I liked it right away, although others say you have to wait until the first big serious arc to see how essential Gintama’s environment and characters are.

Gintoki is a samurai who assists people with occupations here and an alien invasion in mediaeval Japan after that.

He encounters a variety of intriguing personalities along the trip and is forced to draw his sword on multiple times. 

Gintama is a legend with action-packed anime series to most hilarious comedy action anime. It’s more of a parody to many Anime, and that’s why it is one of the best.

4-My Hero Academia

My hero academia is really going great and defining why it is one of the best action anime. So many people really love my hero academia because midoriya is the young boy without power in the world where most people have power, or they call it a quirk.

Midoriya Izuku, a strange young guy living in a superpowered civilization, is the protagonist of yet another typical Action fighting Anime.

Despite this, he dreams of being a hero. This spirit is powerful enough to convince All Might, Japan’s most powerful hero, to pass up his power to Izuku, also known as One for All.

It has a “heart” hidden in something you can’t see.

It is clear to me that it is unclear. I am, however, unable to express it concisely on my own. You can sense it, and after you see the show, you’ll understand why.

You might think it’s like any other shounen anime after watching the first few episodes, but you’ll like it if you get into it. The remainder of the action anime combat is fairly normal fare.

3-Demon Slayer

Despite being one of the newest lads in town, Demon Slayer has rapidly taken over the world. The storey follows Kamado Tanjiro, who is forced to live with his demon sister Nezuko due to a tragic tragedy and must figure out how to turn Nezuko into a human.

While the idea is reasonable, Studio Ufotable’s superb animation and artwork elevate Demon Slayer to new heights. 

As a consequence, Demon Slayer became even more beautiful to see. Not to mention the high-definition animation’s accompanying music soundtrack.

Seeing some of the episodes for the first time (especially the fighting-related episodes) is an experience that many anime fans will never forget. Demon Slayer, for example, is not for those who desire an extraordinary storey, but it is for those who prefer aesthetics to the narrative.

2-Seven Deadly Sins

This Anime is action-packed anime series, and ask the series progresses, and we get to know why it comes under the action genre. All the deadly sins really hit hard.

The first season of Seven Deadly Sins is a wonderful anime, and both seasons are excellent. The plot is engaging, and the action and combat scenes are thrilling.

More than the narrative, the characters (deadly sins) keep this Anime together. The characters are entertaining to watch and differ from one another. However, I don’t care for the animation.

The animation is okay, but not spectacular or wow, but it’s still worth watching. The Anime is still running, but the manga is finished, and it’s fantastic.

You may also watch it on Netflix, which is what I prefer, or you can. Escanor, who is one of my favourite characters, is the character I adore the most.

The interaction between all of the Seven Deadly Sins makes this Anime enjoyable to watch. It features everything you’d expect from a shounen combat anime.

1-One Piece

One Piece is ranked number one on the list of the best Anime in the world, which should tell you how fantastic it is to watch, and it is also one of the best action anime series.

The plot centres around D.Luffy, a monkey who aspires to be the pirate king. He also possesses the power of the gum gum devil fruit. As a result, he may extend his body part like chewing gum.

There are a lot of characters in this narrative, and the plot is fantastic. The animation is really excellent. The supporting characters, though, are the finest part of this Anime. This allowed the Anime a longer run length, and it’s still running.

Being generic, however, isn’t necessarily a negative thing, as I previously indicated. Also, expect some ecchi, as it will almost certainly feature specific goods.

What is the best action anime on Netflix?

There are a few, cowboy bebop, one punch man, naruto and seven deadly sins.

Which streaming service has the best ecchi/ harem/ action anime?

Devil crybaby

What is the best action romance anime?

Samurai feat Trust and Betrayal
