There are countless anime that I am in doubt about which to cite in this article, I will cite the best ones that I like, so this is MY list, and I put more unknown and ignored anime, that few had the chance or animo to watch, in a I will put anime that everyone knows, because everyone already knows.

Steins; Gate

One of the Smartest Works I've ever seen, a fiction that involves time travel, lots of comedy, terrible suspense, and captivating characters. The story takes place in 2010 in Akihabara tells the story of a group of friends who turned their microwave into a device that can send text messages to the past. The character Okabe Rintarou goes through a lot of trouble, when he has to face an organization called SERN, and at the same time save the future of humanity and its friends.

I will not tell details of the story, not from Spoilers, but watch until Episode 13, even if it is boring. Anime will look confusing at first, but I guarantee that when you finish the 25 episodes, it will be on your favorite anime list.

Code Geass

Another very famous Work, with a lot of action and suspense, and a terribly addictive development. I finished the 50 episodes of the anime in 2 days, and it automatically entered my list of favorites.

Despite criticism with respect to the features of the animation and for having a little fuse, those who did not watch do not know the great work they will lose.

Anime tells the story of a super intelligent young man named Lelouch, who is unhappy with the situation in the world, where Japan is dominated by an empire called Britannia. He ends up getting involved in an accident, and gains the power to order anything from whomever he wants. This power has its rules, so it starts a strategic war against the kingdom of Britannia.

Detective Conan

The success of this anime is very low in the West. but in Japan it is a huge success among the entire population, staying ahead of One Piece in the weekly ranking.

Although it seems old, cliché and childish. This is one of the coolest detective works I have ever encountered, and I have watched along with my family all over 700 episodes and the 20 films that exist.

Anime is a type of CSI, where the main character is Edogawa Conan a child who was actually a teenager (Kudo Shinichi) who was forced to take a drug that made him a child so he created another identity and is gradually fighting against the responsible black organization and solving countless cases across Japan using his Uncle Mouri-san.

Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai

Based on a series of Books, and made up of 2 seasons, this anime has a slightly strange theme.

It tells the story of Kyousuke Kousaka a normal young man, who does not have a good relationship with his younger sister. Until one day he discovered that your sister is an Otaku addicted to Eroge (Erotic Games), so the relationship between the 2 is increasing, and he becomes involved in several friendships, and a lot happens…

Despite the “Eroge” theme, the anime has no ecchi. It is more of a comedy, quite exciting.

His friend Kamina, wanting to leave the underground, helps him to know the outside world, and they end up getting involved in an adventure with giant robots. A common and simple story. SQN!

Uchuu Kyoudai

Another very famous anime in Japan and ignored in the West. I think Brazilians just want to know about action and violence, and don't enjoy a good drama.

This Anime tells a very different story, talks about Mutta an adult man who lost his job, and decides to take a test to become an astronaut. It sounds like a simple story, but watching it you will laugh and be moved by the plot and story.
