Anime offers a plethora of genres, but the most prevalent one today is shonen jump. Despite being aimed at younger adolescent boys, shonen is liked by anyone and may even open up new doors, or anime in this case, to even more adventures.

With out further adiew, here are my picks.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure

Hirohiko Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has proven to be one of the most imaginative and original series of its kind. JoJo embraces many of the action-heavy tropes of the shonen genre, yet the series is continually reinventing itself due to its shifting generational storytelling. In each major chapter, JoJo focuses on a different member of the Joestar family tree adding a very powerful and captivating dynamic to the anime.

Though most viewers are turned off by Jojo's graphic style, the character development and lore more than compensate.


Daigo Kagemitsu's samurai lordship is dwindling, and he'll do anything for power, including abandoning Buddha and forming a demon-human alliance. His pleas are fulfilled by 12 demons, who grant him the authority he craves by supporting his prefecture's expansion, but only at a cost.

Kagemitsu's first child is born without limbs, a nose, eyes, ears, or even skin, but he lives. This infant is abandoned in a river. However, he is rescued by a medicine man, who provides him with prosthetics and weapons, allowing him to survive and fend for himself. Despite his inability to see, hear, or feel anything, the boy develops into an adult.

Blue Exorcist.

The plot follows Rin Okumura, a 15-year-old boy who is known as Satan's son and who becomes an Exorcist to avenge his foster father's death when he sacrifices himself to save Rin from Satan. He enrolls in True Cross Academy, where he meets several students who are all pursuing their own objectives. A-1 Pictures Inc. is the studio behind the anime. It began on TBS and MBS on April 17th and finished on October 2nd, with 25 episodes.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

After a horrifying alchemy experiment fails in the Elric home, brothers Edward and Alphonse are thrust into a terrifying new reality. Ignoring the alchemical principle that forbids human transformation, the lads attempted to resurrect their recently deceased mother. Instead, they endured terrible personal losses: Alphonse's body disintegrated, while Edward lost a leg and later sacrificed an arm to retain Alphonse's soul in the physical realm by connecting it to a massive set of armor. Pinako Rockbell and her granddaughter Winry come to the guys' aid. Winry, a bio-mechanical engineering prodigy, makes prosthetic limbs for Edward out of "automail," a robust, adaptable metal used in robotics and military armor. The Elric brothers embarked on a journey after years of preparation.

Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic

The series is largely based on numerous stories from One Thousand and One Nights , most notably the tales of Aladdin, Ali Baba, and Sinbad the Sailor.

The story is set in an alternate recreation of the ancient Old World with several regions and nations having some resemblances with real-life counterparts from that time.

People can use the Rukh in their bodies to create an energy known as Magoi  to power their magical weapons and abilities. Among those that can perform magic with their own Magoi there is a rare class of magicians known as Magi , who can also use Magoi from the Rukh around them, greatly increasing their capabilities. A Magi usually chooses Dungeon Capturers to offer guidance and protection making them into their King Vessels .There are several nations in history that were founded or improved by the rule of such individuals.
