1. One Punch Man
What makes One Punch Man became outrageously popular is the fact that it does not follow the typical plot of an action-genre anime. Instead of having a weakling who will practice and gain experience to be strong in the series, One Punch Man has this bald guy named Saitama who can beat his opponents with a single punch. In addition, he is so powerful that he is looking for a strong opponent worthy of a real fight; he always ended up disappointed when he easily beats his opponents. Somehow, he’s like the odd type of a Deux Ex Machina finishing his enemies with a single punch. I said odd because he’s not the hero material and he seriously looks like a fool (but probably it’s intentional just to give his opponents and the people around him the false impressions of his real strength).

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machiatteiru. Zoku is by far absolutely brilliant in what it brings to a “typical” high school anime combining elements of drama, comedy, and romance into show that screams to be watched by the masses.
