Asta has waited his whole life to receive his grimoire and begin his quest to become the Wizard King. Growing up an orphan with nothing to his name, he trained everyday to complete the first step; becoming a magic knight. However, when Asta's grimoire doesn't appear, it grows clear that he will never be able to use magic. Yet, that doesn't mean that Asta will give up on his dreams. Once you get past his obvious screaming, the show is definitely a shounen anime you're going to want on your watch list.
If you keep up with anime culture, you've probably heard about My Hero Academia; it's one of the most popular shounens out right now. Izuku Midoriya has wanted nothing more than to be a hero with amazing abilities that can save people in need. However, from a young age, Izuku has been told that he has no Quirk; meaning he has no powers. As heartbroken as he is, Izuku is determined to find a way to become the greatest hero ever, even without any powers.
Shinichi Izumi lives in a quite neighborhood in Tokyo, Japan, living a quiet, normal life for a 17-year-old. That is, until an alien creature known as a Parasyte enters his brain and attempts to take over his body. The Parasyte, Migi, messes up and ends up in Shinichi's hand, rather than his brain. Since the two have separate thoughts, they work together with their combined strength to take down other Parasytes and survive as a duo.
Akame ga Kill! is one of those series that definitely has a lot of action in it, even if it does tend to lean a little more towards gorey. Tatsumi is a hopeful young man who travels with his two childhood friends to the Capital in hopes of making money to send back to their poor village. After their adventure goes horribly south when the truth of the Captial and its citizens is revealed, Tatsumi joins the Night Raid; a revolutionary group that hopes to overthrow the prime minister. The show features a lot of twisted moments, but is certainly worth the watch!
