Anim� is an abbreviation of the word animation, anim� is highly appreciated by Americans, not to mention the country it originated from, Japan. But avoid being fooled by the simplistic art style, plenty of anim� can be particularly mature. Trust me when I say there are plenty of different types of anim�, such as best bl anime series

1. Magical girl. Magical girl usually includes a teenage girl who has some how gained magical powers, and has to fight off monsters and anything particularly evil. Magical girl usually revolves around a woman. The love interest is normally emotionless, or simply mean, he will normally have a tragic past or parents that neglect him, and that in turn is somehow supposed to justify him being truly a jerk.

2. Shojo. Shojo is normally aimed at girls probably in their teenage years, or a tiny bit below. Shojo is situated around romance most of the time, and may have magical elements, aliens, and fantasy settings. It doesn’t really matter where or what time it’s set in, just as long as it light, fluffy, and involves beautiful men. But because it’s Shojo that doesn’t mean it can not be incredibly funny.

3. Shonen. Shonen is normally targeted at boys between 12 to state about 19 it most likely includes a 15 or 16 year old boy as the protagonist, and many beautiful girls with slightly different personalities and looks. Shonen can involve magical powers or even more likely a magical object, however, not always.

4. Harem and reverse harem. Harem basically means a group of three or more girls, so obviously harem anim� gives us one boy, probably a complete loser, and three wonderfully anatomically incorrect girls. Boom! Harem anime in a nutshell.

Now there’s reverse harem, it is the same type of thing really, except the gender roles are reversed. There’s usually one girl who’s most likely very dense, not particularly proficient at school work, rather than to say perfectly pure. But now and again we may get a slightly different female protagonist, like a tomboy or just a woman who isn’t as dense as a brick. The most notable reverse harem animes are, ‘The Wallflower’, and ‘Ouran High School Host Club’. The Wallflower is about a woman who doesn’t really value her appearance and is set to stay the same while three guys try to make her in to the perfect lady. And there’s Ouran SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL Host Club. This anim� is approximately a tomboy called Haruhi, she is recognised incorrectly as a boy by the six members of the host club that reside in the school, she breaks a vase and has to repay them by becoming a host herself. It’s much better than it sounds and is incredibly funny. Normally reverse harem can be counted as Shojo.

5. Mecha. Mecha anime isn’t always for boys, as some girls like giant robots fighting too. The nice things about mecha are that it could be your preferred comedy series but with random giant robot battles thrown in the mix.

Some of these could be counted as demographics rather than genres, but in my mind it’s necessary to know those as well as genres, but never the less all of them are types of anim�. As you can plainly see drawings and cartoons should not always be considered childish, and most certainly aren’t by any anim� fan.
