Dog Days takes place in an attractive fantasy setting. A funny and enjoyable anime, Dog Days also offers a touch of fan service. Dog Days has cute and playful characters and also a dark and serious side.

Because our characters are dealing with a lot of drama, emotional outbursts are likely to occur. No matter her position, the Princess isn’t afraid to ask for help when she desperately needs it. Combined with having to deal with massive circumstances, some events that occur produce the imagery of the world being an unkind and dangerous place.

8. Scrapped Princess

7. Aldnoah. Zero

Zero follows the story of space conquest, a time where humans and technology are continually fought over. Before the conflict, the discovery of a hypergate on the moon allowed humans to settle there, eventually revealing advanced technology called Aldnoah.

Once established, this discovery led to the founding of the Vers Empire of Mars and a declaration of war against the “Terrans,” those who stayed behind on Earth. The battle of “Heaven’s Fall” destroyed the hypergate and the moon, leading Earth and Mars to call a ceasefire.

Fifteen years later, in attempts to repair relations, Princess Asseylum Vers Allusia was assassinated, thus ending the truce. War is declared once again between the Terrans and Martians.

However, his date becomes slightly peculiar when they approach the run-down facility and he is recruited by Isuzu and Princess Latifa Fleuranza, the owner of the theme park to become the park’s new manager. The two have become desperate as Amagi has less than three months to become a happening place or else the park will be closed for good.

Seiya agrees because he becomes aware that Amagi is no ordinary amusement park, employing magical beings that are nourished by the energy created by people having fun. Good vibes ya’ll!

Princess Mononoke brings the pressing issue of a changing world and how humanity has influenced its evolution to the foreground. In this film, Hayao Miyazaki uses demons to highlight humanity’s tumultuous relationship with nature, both figuratively and literally.
