We all have them. Those days we wish we could’ve stayed home as opposed to going to work, and having to deal with a co-worker you wanna punch in the face. For anyone working a ‘typical’ 9-to-5 this is usually the story of your life, unless you’re working your dream dob and making a decent living. For many anime fans ‘adulting’ doesn’t come easy; between paying rent, bills, going to work, going to school, or taking care of a child, growing up while being an anime fan can be quite difficult and exhausting. It’s during these rough days that fans turn to their favor titles for comfort, and if you’re one of those fans who is having a bad day at work, here are five anime titles that will turn that frown upside down! 🙂
Recovery Of An MMO Junkie
Are you a fan of anime and online gaming and wish you could log more hours into your character, as opposed to working with that one guy/girl who is a little too nosy for his/her own good? Then check out this awesome title about unexpected love and online gaming known as Recovery of an MMO Junkie! It tells the story of a 30-year-old woman named Moriko, who works at a boring 9-to-5 job and wants to spend more time playing MMORPGs and being a NEET. She then creates a hot male avatar in one of the games that she’s playing, and soon crosses paths with a new female player. What happens next? You’ll have to watch it to find out!
No matter how bad your day is, there’s always someone out there who has it twice as worse than you do. Luckily for us we’ve got anime titles that’ll take our minds off the stress of life and work; this title being one of them. Ever wonder how stressful it can be when you have a passion to do something and travel a lot, but your parents want you to stay home and run the family business? Kokonatsu does, and you can follow him and his adventures with his dad, Hotaru, and the rest of the gang in Dagashi Kashi; a show that’s basically candy-coated comedy! (P.S. The thumbnail is not as ‘naughty’ as you’d think…or is it…?)
Pop Team Epic
Had a sucky day at the office or at any job that give you stress? Here’s a show that takes that stress and turns it into a smorgasbord of absurdity, and bizarre comedy. Pop Team Epic takes the elements of those dank memes you see all over the internet, and fuses it with a western-cartoony anime style that looks like it belongs on the midnight line up for Comedy Central (or one of those animated comedy sketches for MAD-TV back in the day). If you plan on watching this series, be prepared to check your sanity into rehab! XP
When someone tells you that the perfect anime dub doesn’t exist, then they haven’t heard the story of Ghost Stories. Long before DBZ Abridged and all the other abridged anime titles that have come after it, this title was professionally abridged by FUNimation. Badly suffering oversees, the original plot of Ghost Stories was supposed to be a mystery/horror series, but ended up becoming a dark-comedy with ‘Deadpool-level’ writing and jokes, that rips into everything – and everybody! If you wanna laugh your ass off after a bad day at work, then this is the title for you!
Various Funny Moments From Dragon Ball Super Featuring Vegeta
We all know that he’s the saiyan prince, but ever since Vegeta’s hooked up with Bulma (HIS Bulma) he’s made us cackle with laughter during various moments in Dragon Ball Super – even in the new Broly movie! As a father of two he discovers that being a parent as well as keeping up with his fellow saiyan rival, is not exactly a walk in the park. Nevertheless Vegeta has come a long way from his narcissistic ways (yet still retains his saiyan pride in his own right), and continues to grow on us and with us for years to come.
Bad days suck, but just know that you’ll have more good days that’ll override the bad ones. We all need some time away from the stress of life, and if you’re an anime fan then you already know what you need. (Cuz’ you’re probably already watching one of these titles or a different one right now.) Until next post guys and gals, keep calm and watch anime! 🙂
