It turns out there are some great black and white anime, but which are really worth your time? This list ranks the best anime made in black and white, including older titles, as well as new black and white anime that you may not know about.

One example of a great black and white anime is She and Her Cat, a five-minute OVA by Makoto Shinkai that inspired the anime Everything Flows. The story is all about a year in the life of Chobi, a grey cat, and his new owner, Her. Another good example of anime that forgoes bright color in favor of black and white is Osomatsu-kun, based on the manga by Fujio Akatsuka. There are actually two anime for this story, produced more than 20 years apart: 1966 and 1988.
