Anime: Hataraku Maou-sama!
Episodes: 13
Genre: ComedyDemonsSupernaturalRomanceFantasy

Hataraku Maou-Sama!, is an Anime I love and enjoy a lot. What would happen if the Demon King and the person trying to kill him somehow find their way onto Earth, where they try to disguise themselves as everyday people, even if that means, getting a part-time job, all while trying to kill each other? You get this Anime, that is what you get. Although this Anime is not considered a “Slice of Life” Anime, I personally see it as one. This is a great Anime and an enjoyable watch — that is for certain.

MyAnimeList Synopsis
Striking fear into the hearts of mortals, the Demon Lord Satan begins to conquer the land of Ente Isla with his vast demon armies. However, while embarking on this brutal quest to take over the continent, his efforts are foiled by the hero Emilia, forcing Satan to make his swift retreat through a dimensional portal only to land in the human world. Along with his loyal general Alsiel, the demon finds himself stranded in modern-day Tokyo and vows to return and complete his subjugation of Ente Isla—that is, if they can find a way back!

Powerless in a world without magic, Satan assumes the guise of a human named Sadao Maou and begins working at MgRonald’s—a local fast-food restaurant—to make ends meet. He soon realizes that his goal of conquering Ente Isla is just not enough as he grows determined to climb the corporate ladder and become the ruler of Earth, one satisfied customer at a time!

Whether it’s part-time work, household chores, or simply trying to pay the rent on time, Hataraku Maou-sama! presents a hilarious view of the most mundane aspects of everyday life, all through the eyes of a hapless demon lord.

Anime: Shingeki no Kyojin
Episodes: 25
Genre: ActionMilitaryMysterySuper PowerDramaFantasyShounen

The beginning of what is known today, as one of the best Anime ever to air on everyone’s TV or computer screen. With every season Attack on Titan has had, it’s been able to not only meet the hype that surrounded it, but also surpass the hype. It is hard to think that the first season that started it all, is now 6 years old and that its final season has already begun.

MyAnimeList Synopsis
Centuries ago, mankind was slaughtered to near extinction by monstrous humanoid creatures called titans, forcing humans to hide in fear behind enormous concentric walls. What makes these giants truly terrifying is that their taste for human flesh is not born out of hunger but what appears to be out of pleasure. To ensure their survival, the remnants of humanity began living within defensive barriers, resulting in one hundred years without a single titan encounter. However, that fragile calm is soon shattered when a colossal titan manages to breach the supposedly impregnable outer wall, reigniting the fight for survival against the man-eating abominations.

After witnessing a horrific personal loss at the hands of the invading creatures, Eren Yeager dedicates his life to their eradication by enlisting into the Survey Corps, an elite military unit that combats the merciless humanoids outside the protection of the walls. Based on Hajime Isayama’s award-winning manga, Shingeki no Kyojin follows Eren, along with his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman and his childhood friend Armin Arlert, as they join the brutal war against the titans and race to discover a way of defeating them before the last walls are breached.
