But this power also comes with a price which Akira has to battle in everyday life.
Devilman CryBaby is among the top anime series that I would suggest you watch. This 10 episode series is now available on Netflix with English language subtitle to stream.

- Darling In The Franxx
In the future, our existence depends on giant robots called Franxx which help save humanity by defeating monsters. Those giant robots are managed by humans in pairs. Here our main character Hiro is a Franxx operator, but he lacks a partner to manage the giant robots until he meets a charming, beautiful girl with horns.
This is series will give you a vibe of Pacific Rim. Lots of talented artists, writers and directors are behind this creation, and you must not miss the opportunity. Darling In The Franxx is started streaming on Crunchyroll from 13th of this month.
- The Beginning
The plot of this show is still a mystery, but what I can make of from its trailer is that this is a crime drama based anime. An intelligent detective is looking for a mysterious serial killer called Killer B. In another plot; there were humans from an alternate universe who were supposed to bring world peace but were kidnapped by few evil minds for their own benefit.
This series is scheduled to be released on Netflix starting 2nd March.
These are the five anime series that I am excited to watch starting this year. Do you agree with me? I am always open for discussion.
