10. DAI-GUARD ( Giant Monsters in Anime )
It’s humans versus monsters but this time three average salarymen get thrown into the mix yep you heard that right it may feature some giant meccas but in truth, it’s your average day job worker trying to combat the corporate world but this doesn’t mean it’s less interesting of course so if the name is the biggest problem for you here what is the dying guard think of it as the very last iteration of the Guerin lagan and then send it to earth to find monsters yep one giant monster versus aliens if this doesn’t give you those pacific rim vibes then I don’t know what will oh and the action scenes are both climactic and hilarious you’ll know what I mean once you start watching the anime.
9. RAGE OF BAHAMUT ( Giant Monsters in Anime )
Dragons who doesn’t love dragons as long as they don’t burn cities and mass murder people of course but why limit yourself to just dragons Bahamut has got all sorts of monsters popping up plus a powerful female character which is very rare in anime nowadays the world of the RAGE OF BAHAMUT is divided into two part of it owned by humans and the other by demons this was in order to prevent the awakening of a demon beast named Bahamut.
now nearly 2,000 years later a woman named amira appears with a god key and now searches for her lost mother she’s aided by the bounty hunters Favaro Leon and kaiser litvard if you need a fast-paced adventure with dragons and monster slayers then this is the show for you.
8. KAGEWANI ( Giant Monsters in Anime )
Occult mystery shows are everyone’s favorite right who doesn’t like getting back to those x-files vibes but with Japanese dubbing and large monsters kagewani provides just that but with more suspense and horror Sosuke Bamba plans on investigating mysterious monster attacks around the world but the more he dives deep into the mystery the more he realizes about the real villains behind the attacks.
think of kimono jihen but with more big creatures kakawani might not be the best detective show out there but it can definitely suit the taste of all giant monster fans the only bad thing here is that the episodes are only 7 minutes long I mean come on that’s like making a Godzilla movie only 30 minutes long.
7. GOD EATER ( Giant Monsters in Anime )
Of course who doesn’t like anything done by ufotable when you see those nice visuals blending in with some spectacular cgi you practically pray to keep your schedule free to binge-watch the anime this was based on the video game series of the same name and even though the story takes some twists and turns here and there the setting remains the same there are giant monsters called aragami and we have god eaters wielding god arcs who need to hunt them down
sort of like the video game code vane if you ask me but you get superb action from ufotable and giant monsters in every corner so what more could you ask for
6. DARLING IN THE FRANXX ( Giant Monsters in Anime )
Now, this was the anime that was on everybody’s lips when it got released not only did we get giant monsters but we also got giant waifus in wedding dresses although the story fell down into the drain and gushed out in the last few arcs the first few arcs did a great job of building up the setting and the characters around it.
you could almost call this a less depressing version of Evangelion it was one of the few mecca monsters shows that takes his time to develop the characters and give them actual personalities the show also brings in quite a lot of themes that are later explored during the middle of the season and hey we got zero too even if you don’t like monsters you should like here.
5. SSSS.GRIDMAN ( Giant Monsters in Anime )
SSSS.GRIDMAN may have a weird title but it is also much better when it comes to the action the premise here is simply a kid finds a large mecha robot named SSSS.GRIDMAN and then use it to find monsters oh he also gets the help of other kids and forms the GRIDMAN alliance if the premise sounds like those 1980s transformers shows don’t let that stop you gripman’s got some great action and also focuses on themes like use and technology apart from the giant robot you also get giant monsters so that makes things more awesome even the character development may be a bit cliche at times but by the end of the anime you’ll start to love all the characters.
4. DIGIMON ( Giant Monsters in Anime )
need pokemon but with giant monsters, Digimon won’t give you pocket monsters but it will give you some cool monster battles it may feel less mature compared to anime like darling and the franks and god eater but come on why not dive into some artistic inspiration of monsters it’s about seven kids who find such Digimon and go on an adventure people may call it a pokemon ripoff and it may not have gotten a large western fanbase like the pokemon series but is still a great monster anime for anyone who needs to binge in adventure anime during this time.
think of it as a different version of pokemon but with way cooler monsters.
3. GODZILLA: PLANET OF THE MONSTER ( Giant Monsters in Anime )
Humanity versus the king of monsters when does this story even get old the big-budget Hollywood blockbuster seems to do a great job with the source material but when it has an anime adaptation it means you get more flexibility with the action and animation one young boy hobbies a long grudge against the infamous Godzilla and when the last remaining humans need to find habitat on earth it’s up to him to lead the mission.
anyone who knows about the movies will know what to expect from this and trust me you’re gonna get some great action you’re never going to forget.
2. NEON GENESIS EVANGELION ( Giant Monsters in Anime )
Do you feel depressed no want to know I’ll see what depression looks like large naked ladies devouring human souls and people turning into orange juice with the end of the earth will you ever believe me if I tell you that this all started because of one wrong call from the main character’s dad i know and you thought you’re that cold at the wrong moment but I ignore the jokes for a moment Evangelion has had an impact on the whole mecca monster genre and is one of the most iconic franchises in japan.
the angry cinder the shy boy and the emotionless girl all getting together to find monsters you better tell me about accommodation.
1. ATTACK ON TITAN ( Giant Monsters in Anime )
Giants racism war birds okay perhaps not that last one but you get the point attack on time has laid a huge impact on the anime industry ever since it got released in 2013 it’s got action it’s got politics monster hunting and one main character going berserk and raising hell.
if you’ve not watched the attack on titan then now’s the best time to start binging it the very final arc is getting its adaptation next winter and the man vs monster story is probably going to be one of the greatest anime of all time you might go in expecting giant monsters but then your jaw’s gonna drop to the floor when a young kid makes a love confession on top of all or when another kid decides the best way to solve problems is to start some good old genocide.
So there goes 10 giant monster anime you should watch right now if this doesn’t already give you the Godzilla vibes then I don’t know what will.
