It’s a common misconception that anime is meant for little children. All over the world, animation is mostly geared towards a younger audience, but for the Japanese, this isn’t always the case.
Whenever I hear, ‘Anime is just like cartoons’, my skin crawls and it takes all of my self control not to flip some tables and rage!
Anime is far from just children’s cartoons. There are multiple genres that are geared towards different people and age-groups.
For example, Kodomomuke is meant for little kids.. Shojo is geared towards teen girls and Shonen for teen boys. And then you have darker more mature genres of anime, Josei and Seinen for older girls and boys, respectively.
In this post, I’ll share with you some darker more mature anime that will hopefully change your perspective and get you hooked!
Anime is an integral part of my childhood, and my fallback through awkward puberty and teenage angst! Coming of age anime is a must if you want to reminisce about childhood days, and if you’re still in those days, then there’s much to be learned from them!
So I bring to you, my list of Top 5 coming of age anime!
Now we’ve all been acquainted with Naruto, Bleach, Death Note, One Piece and the like. So I’m choosing to overlook these illustrious gems!
