50 animes para ver this summer
Una gran forma de aprender Japonés y de divertise con sus locas historias
Taking advantage of August and following in the line of the list of the 65 best movies of the 80s (which was so successful, partly thanks to the Microsiervos effect), we have now prepared a selection of the 50 anime we liked the most of those we have seen, some I think have not been released in Spain and are only subtitled.
Attention, they are ordered by date, maybe it would have been more interesting to order them from worst to best, but they are different genres and it would be really difficult to make a very objective ranking of them without collapsing to criticisms by the commentators. I have put the chapters of many of the series, but many of them have separate OVAS and movies.
In the web of McAnime they have a ranking of the most popular anime in these dates (a very recommended page) and I also have to thank Hackito for his great help in making the list. Hope you like it and find something good for these hot days!
1971. Lupin iii (ルパン三世)
1983. Champions (oliver and benji) (キャプテン翼)

1986. Dragon ball (ドラゴンボール)
(153 episodes series, the z and double z series together total 291 episodes and the gt series, which for my taste lowered the bar a lot, is 65 episodes). Undoubtedly this series will be known by almost everyone, it is a series of adventures and a lot of fighting. More information | downloads

Gantz](/blog/50-animes-to-watch-this-summer/images/gantz_jhyvgn.jpg)(26-episode series). This is one of my fetish series, a very good sci-fi series, with lots of violence and action.

2006. Ultimate hellsing
Ultimate hellsing](/blog/50-animes-to-watch-this-summer/images/ultimate_hellsing_ajrcms.jpg)(unfinished series). The good series is the ovas series, not the regular series which is already fully aired. The ovas are really good, a vampire series, quite bloodthirsty and gore, but one of the best vampire series I've seen in anime. More information | downloads
2006. Death note (デスノート).
Death note](/blog/50-animes-to-watch-this-summer/images/death_note_cx9qqj.jpg)(37-episode anime series). The first season is sublime, but the second season declines a bit, another one of my fetish series, it's about a guy who finds a notepad in which if you write the name of a person, he dies.

2006. The girl who leapt through time (時をかける少女).

Sayonara zetsubou sensei](/blog/50-animes-to-watch-this-summer/images/sayonara_zetsubou_sensei_rir4yj.jpg)(anime series). The first season is very, very good, with lots of humor and criticism of Japanese society. The second season declines a bit. More info | downloads
2007. Nodame cantabile (のだめカンタービレ).
Nodame cantabile](/blog/50-animes-to-watch-this-summer/images/nodame_cantabile_cpge5c.jpg)(23-episode anime series, well now they are airing the second season). A series with a lot of humor and a lot of classical music. More information | downloads
2007. School days (スクールデイズ)
2007. Tengen toppa - gurren lagann (天元突破グレンラガン).
Tengen toppa - gurren lagann](/blog/50-animes-to-watch-this-summer/images/tengen_toppa_gurren_lagann_d9ka4p.jpg)(27 episode anime series). Humorous series at the beginning and more dramatic later, about mecha, very good, no doubt. More information | downloads

2007. Lovely complex (ラブ★コン)
Lovely complex](/blog/50-animes-to-watch-this-summer/images/lovely_complex_m0jbwl.jpg)(26-episode anime series). Series about love between two students with height problems. More information | downloads

2007. Claymore (クレイモア).
Claymore](/blog/50-animes-to-watch-this-summer/images/claymore_vqiml0.jpg)(26-episode series). A series about demon hunting by girls, half human, half demon. Very, very good, but it lacks some chapters and the ending they have put in the anime is the worst I've seen, in fact, the ending has nothing to do with the manga. If we remove the last chapter, the series is more than recommendable. More information | downloads
2009. Suzumiya haruhi no yuutsu
Suzumiya haruhi no yuutsu](/blog/50-animes-to-watch-this-summer/images/suzumiya_haruhi_no_yuutsu_fqy8yq.jpg)(series of 14 episodes). Series that parodies many series, pretty good, with a pretty crazy protagonist. More information | downloads
