The popularity of Japanese anime has remained high amongst Singapore teenagers and young adults over the years. While some enjoy Netflixing and chilling during their free time, many others prefer watching anime on their couches. This could be due to some reasons such as shorter episodes or crazier and more insane content since it’s… animated.
Big names like Dragonball, One Piece, and Naruto will be excluded in our list of anime that deserves a watch.

Over the years, humans develop “Quirks” which grants them superpowers. This lead to a rise of a new job called “Heroes” However, some unlucky few are unable to develop quirks and thus are deemed as powerless. Izuku Midoriya is one such individual. However, he has always wanted to be a hero like his idol All Might, the #1 hero. Izuku did not give up and continued to train hard, hoping to become a hero one day. After some events, All Might chooses Izuku as his successor and trains him. Izuku then enrolled into UA High, a well-known school to train heroes.
