Hello everyone green tea here, thank you for tuning in to green tea anime. If you live in LA you’ll realize that it’s raining today and I thought now would be the perfect time to go over some animes to watch that goes well with a rainy day. If you enjoy this list of animes please like and follow the blog for more and of course donate if you want to support my anime hoodie collection and addiction. With the introduction out the way let’s get to number 5
At number 5 we have Neon Genesis Evangelion, Evangelion is set fifteen years after a worldwide cataclysm, particularly in the futuristic fortified city of Tokyo-3. The protagonist is Shinji Ikari, a teenage boy who is recruited by his father Gendo to the shadowy organization Nerv to pilot a giant bio-machine mecha named “Evangelion” into combat against beings known as “Angels”. The creator of this anime Hideaki Anno basically decided one day in the 1990s to create an anime based of his form of depression. You might think this means the anime is sad but I honestly think it depends on the viewer I know a lot of people who watch this anime to bring themselves comfort. I feel like the old 90s anime aesthetic goes well with rainy days and I also feel like the amount of different emotions you feel and the way the story is written pairs perfectly with the rainy atmosphere. There’s no reason to not watch Evangelion its critically acclaimed and on Netflix. Also a major plus is the intro song I honestly never skip it.
At number 4 we have Toradora! you know what’s the best on a cold day/night cuddling. But if you don’t have a partner no worries anime can you give you the same warmth without the feeling of an arm asleep.Toradora! Follows the main protagonist Ryuji Takasu and he is frustrated at trying to look his best as he enters his second year of high school. Despite his gentle personality, his eyes give him the appearance of an intimidating delinquent. He is happy to be classmates with his best friend Yusaku Kitamura, as well as the girl he has a crush on, Minori Kushieda. However, he unexpectedly runs into “the school’s most dangerous animal of the highest risk level” Taiga Aisaka, who just happens to be Minori’s best friend. Taiga has a negative attitude towards others and has a habit of snapping violently at people. She takes an instant dislike to Ryuji, and it turns out she is living in an apartment facing Ryuji’s house. When Ryuji discovers that Taiga has a crush on Yusaku, and Taiga finds out about Ryuji’s affections towards Minori, they make an arrangement to help set each other up with their crushes. If you want the warm feels romantic shows give you this is such a good one for that not only does it give you the feels but the show also makes you laugh.
At number 3 we have Angel Beats! I’m not going to sugar coat it I cried very hard while watching this anime. But to be honest at the time it was such a good time that I had watching Angel beats I didn’t even mind crying not many shows can get that reaction out of me but this one did. Angel Beats! is set in the environment of a high school in the afterlife, a type of limbo for people who have experienced trauma or hardships in life and must overcome them before passing on and being reincarnated. The story follows Yuzuru Otonashi, a boy with amnesia who ends up in the afterlife. He meets Yuri Nakamura, a girl who invites him to join the Afterlife Battlefront (死んだ世界戦線, Shinda Sekai Sensen), or SSS, an organization she founded and leads which rebels against an unseen God for their unfair circumstances in life. Their enemy is Angel, the student council president, who has supernatural powers and is believed to be God’s associate. After joining the SSS, Otonashi meets other members, including Hideki Hinata, the co-founder; Masami Iwasawa, the lead vocalist of a four-girl rock band, Girls Dead Monster (GDM); and Yui, an underclassman and fan of GDM. Other than the SSS members, the afterlife is populated by fabricated students and teachers, whom Yuri refers to as “non-player characters” (NPCs). The show is a quick 13 episode anime and it’s worth the watch if you have some time on a rainy day.
At number 2 we have To Your Eternity. The ups and downs this show will have you going through, I couldn’t watch the whole anime series straight I had to take breaks because it was a lot of emotional drama I was going through. The story is about an immortal being, Fushi, who takes on multiple forms and freely utilizes their respective natural abilities at will, including that of an abandoned white-haired Eskimo boy and his white wolf, in order to further evolve and stimulate as it learns what it is to be truly human over the decades and centuries. I can’t explain the rest of the plot in order to not ruin the show but just know the character development the main character and you will go through is so much you won’t recognize him by the start of the second season you might not even recognize yourself. I was so drawn in to the show when I started watching it I just couldn’t stop.
At number 1 we have Wagnaria!! Set in a family restaurant in Hokkaido, the northern prefecture of Japan, 16-year-old high school student Sōta Takanashi works part-time along with his strange co-workers: Popura Taneshima, a high school girl who despite being a year older than Sōta is easily mistaken for a elementary/middle schooler, and Kyoko Shirafuji, the 28-year-old store manager who does not bother to do any work at all. With such a basic plot and concept I feel like a lot of people could get comfortable with this show and getting comfortable on a rainy day is the best way to spend it, your going to laugh at every episode at the different antics from each character that works in the family restaurant. The best part of this show is it has sequels that involve different characters so the fun can go on the next time you need some comedic relief.
