But Fate/Zero, based on the prequel light novel by Gen Urobuchi and animated by Ufotable, was a far different story. Telling the story of the Fourth Holy Grail War.

Most Isekai are just excuses to live out geeky power fantasies. Reincarnated as a Slime isn’t different in that respect. It’s lead character Rimuru is almost comedically powerful, capable of tearing through almost any threat that challenges him.

It sees Rimuru learn to navigate this new fantasy world after being forced to leave his humanity behind. He gathered all the monsters of the nation under him to create a peaceful kingdom. Reincarnated as a Slime is filled with beautiful animation, likable characters, and an engrossing well-developed world.


JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is certainly the most Meme-Tastic anime series of the decade. The manga series by Hirohiro Araki plugged along for over two decades.

The franchise follows the Joestar family line, individuals with incredible power. They wind up battling dangerous supernatural villains. What makes the series stand out is Araki’s willingness to tell complete stories with one protagonist before shifting to an entirely different group.


The newest manga and anime on this list, Koyoharu Gotoge’s Demon Slayer caught on like wildfire. A large part of this is Ufotable taking their already incredible animation talents to an entirely new level.

But equally important is that Demon Slayer may have the most likable male and female leads of the decade. A pair of siblings who lived simple lives in the country before a monster transformed the sister into a demon. From there, Demon Slayer sees Tanjiro, the brother, try to find a way to restore his sister Nezuko to normal.
