An anime that is well known by many to be very deceptive from the cover to its cutesy visuals it is the kind of anime that will shock you so much that a tingling sensation will be left inside your brain every single time you recall the experience given to you by the shocking anime the premise is simple enough as you end up following Keiichi Maebara a young teen that moves into a brand new village and makes friends with a group of girls the story continues as Keiichi Maebara ends up learning of the sinister legends behind the town that he now lives in, Higurashi is deceptive in its ways because its initial presentation is of a normal show with teenage children that become the closest of friends only to suddenly take a dark and violent turn with a mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end of each and every arc that this anime has to offer.
We all love our fair share of detective stories and frankly with anime like death note taking the genre to extremes with other supernatural elements it is also a genre that is striving to have breaths of fresh air by coming up with unique concepts to have each anime stand out it is safe to say that gosek is one of those anime that managed to achieve that from the get-go although it might be for reasons that you may not expect go 6 starts off as a good mystery anime with many cases to solve by the hands of our two main protagonists kusaya Kujo and Victorique de blas what ends up surprising many and in turn exceeding their expectations however is how the story ends as it takes a dark turn and much of the plot points start to make sense the overarching journey up to that point beautifully led to its conclusion in this unique historical anime definitely an anime worth your time.
8. ASSASSINATION CLASSROOM
Assassination Classroom might have one of the wackiest premises in anime in recent history after all it has the fate of the earth resting on the hands of the deadbeat class of a middle school how exactly do these teeny children have to save the world by learning military-grade assassination techniques and somehow managed to use them on an extraterrestrial creature that has the ability to move at Mach 20 speed no biggie right the thing about assassination classroom is that the premise ends up taking the anime to new heights it is the kind of anime that starts off serious slacks a seriousness off and brings light-hearted elements to it before almost suffocating your attention with its serious ending with a lovable cost and endearing story writing assassination classroom is definitely going to take you by surprise.
What do you get when two completely opposite personalities meet with the purpose of helping each other find success in the individual romantic lives being the only thing that ties them together with my friends you get Toradora however you should best leave your presumptions out by the door if you are planning to write this off as just another romantic comedy anime in an oversaturated genre like romance Toradora manages to stay fresh to the point where you will have a hard time breaking away from the series however it truly diversifies itself as a one of a kind when the comedic atmosphere takes a back seat and more interesting and serious elements come into play the backstories of each character are written in a way that gives meaning behind each and every action they make instead of relying on cliches like much other romantic anime tends to do not sleep on Toradora.

5. CODE GEASS
An anime that many would simplify as death note with a max of course someone who actually went through the hassle of going from start to finish would disagree wholeheartedly with that simplistic analysis the story starts off rather simplistically with two factions neck to neck in a war with one another and our protagonist coming in the form of a mysterious vigilante with a great power however the simplistic start is nothing but a ruse as what awaited many after the first few episodes, politics rivalry and camaraderie strained friendships love and hate complex ideologies and absolute visual carnage that is presented through its unique visual style code gas is the kind of anime that turns people off during initial inspection but with the right kind of time and effort put into watching the series will let you in on one of the most underrated anime in history we can safely say that the main protagonist Lelouch will end up being one of your favorite protagonists of all time afterward just you wait.
