List Rules Vote up the best shounen anime of all time.

Shounen (or "shōnen") is one of the most popular genres of anime. It is geared toward teenage boys and usually features a male protagonist who embarks on an adventure filled with challenges. The truth is, the world could always use more shounen anime because it is filled with several positive themes, such as believing in yourself and hard work paying off. The genre often crosses over with fantasy and action anime, and does not often focus too heavily on romance. 

Below, you’ll find tons of great examples of this popular anime genre. Vote up your favorite shounen anime that deserves to be number one, and downvote the choices that you wouldn't really recommend to others.
