Dr. StoneDr. Stone

Dr. Stone is among the most popular and innovative science fiction anime series. It combines intense post-apocalyptic action with real-world science to enthrall viewers. It centers around the compelling journey of Senku Ishigami, a boy genius and science prodigy who awakens to an Earth where everyone has been turned into stone.

Now, it’s up to Senku and his newfound friends to rebuild millions of years of human progress with nothing but his stock knowledge of science and trial and error. Dr. Stone is a unique shonen anime where the protagonist is more brains than brawn and more pragmatic than idealistic.

Space BrothersSpace Brothers

Space Brothers is a nice change of pace from all the darkness and the monsters in other sci-fi anime series. It centers around two brothers who swore to each other in childhood that they would become astronauts. Fast forward to adulthood, reality happens, and their paths in life diverge.

However, their dream is still intact; both wanted to be astronauts. Space Brothers follow their journey as they try to fulfill their childhood dreams in a combination of comedy, slice-of-life, and sci-fi in one heartwarming seinen mix.


Psycho-Pass isn’t as futuristic as other sci-fi titles, but it shouldn’t be shrugged off or disregarded. It’s actually a better fit in the cyberpunk subgenre. In Psycho-Pass, society relies on a calculated assessment that can predict crimes and criminals before they happen.

This technology makes the job of law-enforcement personnel, or Enforcers, a bit easier. However, this system isn’t always accurate, making certain cases harder to crack. Shinya and Akane, the series’ protagonists, certainly have their work cut out in this anime.
