Top 5 Great Anime Series to Watch on a First Date Posted Nov 13, 2020

Part of the fun of getting to know a prospective partner on a dating platform is discovering your hobbies and interests you have in common. Not only will this give you so much ammunition for your online chat as you develop a rapport, but it will also provide pointers towards the ideal location for your first get together. Many couples discover a shared passion for Anime. When the time comes to get together for a face-to-face encounter, here are five of the best series that were compiled by dating consultants from loveaholics.com to enjoy together.

Revolutionary Girl Utena

This particular anime feature dates all the way back to the 90s but its true chic style and unforgettable character design meant that this is a timeless example of the art. Packed with enthralling action and running to 13 episodes, if you can get hooked on this on your first date, there’ll be no excuse for not planning to binge the series. The storyline follows the female protagonist, Utena Tenjou, a tomboy, surrounded by female students at a prestigious academy, and fantasizing about becoming a prince. You and your partner will soon succumb to her charms as her adventures unfold.

My Hero Academia

Plot-wise, there has always been a correlation between Anime and superhero plotlines, but this series offers a unique twist on this well-worn theme. Here, the main character is Izuku Midoriya – although he is a hero, he doesn’t have noticeable powers of any sort. This situation is exacerbated because he finds himself surrounded by people who do. Finally, he learns about the so-called ‘quirk’ he possesses after being scouted by Japan’s ultimate superhero, Ali Might, who has recognized his potential. Along the way, you’ll be drawn into his world as he follows the traditional journey of a reawakening, with many exciting twists and turns. Although there are often irreverent sub-plots, their silliness enhances rather than spoils the hugely enjoyable central plot.


Shorter than many of the Anime series you are likely to encounter, running for a mere 16 episodes, Baccano will stick in your mind for its fast-paced storyline, crammed with adventure and intrigue. The main setting is a train ride, and this is the perfect vehicle for the white-knuckle action that unfolds. If you’re looking for a blend of dazzling scenes and memorable if threatening psychopathic villains, this will captivate your attention from the get-go. It’s great for couples on a first date because you’ll appreciate each of the unusual twists all the more as you get engrossed together.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders

Action-filled plots are what you would associate with shounen anime, focusing on characters aimed at a predominantly young male audience, but this series is universally engaging. Here we follow the different generations of the Joestar family, particularly JoJo when he discovers he possesses unique magical powers thanks to his bloodline. These abilities are known as ‘Stand.’ Once he realizes how well-equipped he is to deal with adversity, he embarks on a quest to save his mother, while thwarting the unwelcome advances of a bunch of somewhat odd assassins. The pair of you will love the unfolding anarchic action on your first date.

Naruto Shippuden

Your final choice for a date night Anime series has got to be Naruto Shippuden, widely known as one of the ‘big three’ Anime features due to its insanely popular appeal the world over. You won’t find many Anime features with so much dazzling fight sequences to glue your attention. This has everything, including characters who will pull at your heartstrings, as well as darker and more challenging storylines.
