Sci-Fi Science Fiction Anime List + TOP 10

Do you like sci-fi or sci-fi anime? In this guide we will share the best of the genre, along with a complete list of good anime that end up going unnoticed by people.

Sci-fi, or science fiction, is a genre of speculative anime based on imagination. They usually explore a new world, whether in the future or in the past, in addition to other planets and alternative lands.

The genre commonly presents humanity's curiosity and innovation as they struggle with new technologies, new societies or new frontiers in space. Most of the time these anime are theoretically possible by science.

Steins; Gate - The best Sci-Fi time travel anime

Without a doubt the best science fiction anime involving time travel is called Steins; Gate. A perfect work with a lot of psychological thriller, mystery and full of references to Otaku world, in addition to references to the real world.

The anime tells the story of a group of young people who end up creating a time machine using a microwave, it looks confused and crazy but WATCH! This is without a doubt the best anime I have watched in my entire life! Difficult to give a synopsis without spoilers.

The anime consists of 24 episodes plus an OVA, followed by a movie and a second season spin-off which shows an alternative timeline that has relevance in the main story, where events lead to the results of the first season.

Gintama - A Sci-Fi Comedy

Gintama is a huge success in Japan, being one of the greatest comedy anime of all time, focused on making parodies and references. In this anime we have a universe full of samurai, aliens and other flashy creatures.

Several space races known collectively as Amanto arrived in the era of the samurai. Amanto's highly advanced technology has resulted in total achievement and severe economic change. Now, ex-samurai like Gintoki turn to survive.

Gintoki's profession is that of yorozuya which consists of doing any job for money. However, he is unmotivated and spends most of the day on the couch reading the latest issue of Jump while being tormented by his employees Shinpachi and Kagura.

Sidonia no Kishi - Knights of Sidonia

An alien race called Gauna destroyed Earth, leaving humanity struggling to survive on board the ship Sidonia. Even though a century has passed since the last meeting with the Gauna, military service is mandatory.

For Nagate Tanikaze, whose grandfather secretly hid him in Sidonia's forgotten bowels, it is a strange new world, as he is forced to surface. However, their recruitment arrives just in time, as the Gauna suddenly reappeared.

Despite the CG, as soon as you get used to it, anime captures you and takes you to great emotions, with a good dash of action, romance and twists. Try giving this great sci-fi anime a try.

Announcement

In addition to Sidonia no Kishi, I want to make honorable mentions of other anime involving space battles and mekain order to avoid similar anime on the list. Please give anime a try Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Aldnoah Zero.

Boku no Hero Academia - The world of heroes

In this universe more than 70% of the population has some special ability, some use these skills to become heroes. The protagonist Midoriya Izuku was born without any skills, but is passionate about the heroes and very much wants to be one of them.

One day the Super hero most powerful and famous on the planet All Might, offers a golden opportunity for the boy. Midoriya has the opportunity to inherit the power of All Might to be trained and become his successor.

Announcement

With that Midoriya goes to study in the biggest school of Heroes in order to improve his skills and fight against the villains. Boku no Hero is a highly successful multi-season anime that you probably already know. Otherwise… Run to watch!

Remember that there are other anime of the fiction genre with heroes. We can briefly cite the case of One Punch Man, an anime with a lot of comedy and action. I decided to quote you briefly here to avoid several similar anime on the list.

Space Brothers - Uchuu Kyoudai

One of the my favorite anime and one of the most popular in Japan that goes unnoticed by Western society. In this everyday story we are in the shoes of Mutta, a 30-year-old unemployed man with a childhood dream of going to space.

Announcement

His younger brother Hibito managed to fulfill that dream by becoming an astronaut. Mutta, although old, tries to reach his brother by enlisting to be an astronaut in order to go to Mars. It seems like a different theme, but it is very exciting.

Only with the synopsis I am not able to hold your attention, but this anime is simply epic! Mixing different genres, with a lot of drama and psychological, with a comedy and more realistic footprint. Watch the anime that won Japan's weekly TOP1 several times.

Psycho-Pass - Controlled by a system

In Psychi-Pass, a system called Sibyl is responsible for Japan's security. Through its technology, it can identify people's criminal coefficient, preventing them from committing crimes before they even think about doing so.

This creates a totally different universe, where people need to avoid stress, if they do not need to check in. A whole technological world, Dark and Punk, where a kind protagonist ends up being recommended to serve as an inspector.

Inspectors work alongside latent criminals called executors, who need to catch potential criminals, using a weapon that only fires if the person's coefficient is high. The weapon can paralyze or kill according to value.
