Anime Games to Play When Bored

#1
Prior to determining anime games you want to play when bored, what kind of anime game would you like to play?
Mainstream anime games usually have the following types:

1) Story-rich game - visual novel or JRPG
2) 1vs1 fighting game - Recommended if you like dueling
3) Massively Online Multiplayer Anime Games
4) Kawaii anime games, or anime dress up games

We will introduce the most popular anime games that fit each category as of August 2021.

1) Story-rich games - visual novels or JRPGs (mainly RPGs with little action elements)

If we go back to the history of anime games in the 1990s, JRPGs or visual novels always dominated the mainstream of anime games history. Because these genres have the environment to convey the best stories to gamers in a well arranged form. In the past anime games, there were famous JRPGs such as Breath Of Fire, Langrisser, and Shining Force, etc. There were mainly adult games on PC in terms of visual novels, but due to the influence of consoles that do not allow adult versions (e.g. Isaku, Toheart, Nonomura Byōin, etc), there are also many visual novels that focus only on the story on consoles (e.g. Sentimental Graffiti on PC and SEGA Saturn). In recent years, on AnimeEsports.com as of August 2021, Steins;Gate Elite and Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc have been the most popular according to AEG Anime Game Database.

2) 1vs1 fighting game - Recommended if you like Dueling

In fact, this field is also a genre of games with a very long history in Japan, along with JRPGs and visual novels. It is a game style that mainly consists of combos using human instincts or reaction speed, so I don't think a long explanation is necessary. As of August 2021, Dragon Ball FighterZ and BlazBlue: Central Fiction are the most popular fighting games according to AEG Anime Game Database.

3) Massively Online Multiplayer Anime Games

Unlike fighting games or co-op games that can be played with a small group of 1 or 2 people, it is a type of game that can be played with a large group of at least 4 people. It is a genre that began to emerge as high-speed Internet spread to many countries in the 2000s. In my memory, the first massively online game that uses the Internet and allows more than 4 players at the same time was probably Phantasy Star Online 1 (PSO1) in  2000 as a game of Dreamcast platform.



For reference, I remember that the co-op and PvP of PSO1 was up to 4 people. It is also the field of anime games that our Anime Esports community has been focusing on. Currently, the most popular Massively Online Multiplayer Anime Games as of August 2021 are Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet (Fatal Bullet is more popular than Alicization Lycoris) and Genshin Impact are the most popular. Other than that, I personally recommend Kurtzpel and Phantasy Star Online 2 on PC. If you're looking for a battle royale-type anime game like Fortnite that you can play with 50+ players, it doesn't exist yet as of August 2021. The reason is that most of the companies that make anime games are niche video game companies, and their capital is not good enough to make such a huge game. By the way, if you mainly play these genres of games, we recommend that you join our community and play together. In particular, population is the most important for games of this genre, and the platforms that currently have the most online users in anime games are PS4 -> PC -> Switch & Xbox in that order. If you're buying a Switch or Xbox, it's going to be very difficult to find someone you want to play with (I personally had a Switch, but it was very difficult to find someone to play with, so I sold it back).

4) Kawaii anime games, or anime dress up games

In a way, it can be said that it is a game that expresses the true meaning of anime. Kawaii Anime Games has already been described and introduced in detail on another page, so please refer to it.


These are the most playable genres in the current anime game. Hope it helps you.

New thread - A list of Strategies that use Wickline Cunningly - UPDATING in forum Eternal Return Guide.
(8 hours ago)Jotaku Wrote:  1. Attack the enemy team that is chasing Wickline. This tactic is even better if the enemy team has already attacked the Wickline. If you look at the video below, it is a case of winning the team battle by catching the enemy attacking the Wickline and chasing after it, even though the team has a much better level, weapon level, and item than us.

[Video: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1490634668]

This document will be updated as the OP realize other strategies as time goes by! Please come back in the future Lewd

I used to read Naruto manga about 20 years ago for several months...and stopped ;_;
But I heard Naruto is still the best manga in terms of selling books. In terms of anime games, yeah Naruto has probably lots of Twitch viewers (Shinobi Striker) and Bandai Namco do make frequent updates on Naruto games!

Guess I will start reading it again!

New thread - What should I focus on between animal killing vs PvP? in forum Eternal Return Guide.
(05-17-2022, 04:06 AM)Jotaku Wrote:  Answer:
Focus on animals whenever possible if you don't have to PvP

Following video demonstrate why PvE is more important than PvP in this PvP game.

Check how the team with only 1 kill and 0 kill play like from the start to end, and also check how they beat dominating team which had 7 times more kills than them.

Otherwise, you will need to invite random people a lot in many different servers, but this process may make your server destroyed if reported lol. If you don't do either one of random people invitation or paid advertisement, then the size of the discord server will always be small since there are also people who leave the server and guess what? Server never grow at some point. So I wouldn't run for now as we have no revenue on the website. If we can make some revenue then yeah, next thing I would focus on is running a discord server and create some Discord bots for improving the life of anime games. However. we already spend our max on running website server and giveaways....

For the part of "O en todo caso... otra de las cosas que me han dicho, es que si no crecemos mucho con estos 'Anime Games'... porque no introducir algunos juegos mas populares, de esa manera tambien podrian explorar el contenido de 'Anime Games' de la pagina.. y tal vez se animen a jugarlos", => I don't understand this part quite well. What do you mean by "some more popular games"?

We do grow, but very slowly.
I'm releasing it because people here will be curious about it.

This is a comparison between total number of users (who basically visited the website) from "2021 April ~ 2022 April" vs "2020 Mar ~ 2021 Mar".



So as you see the graph, there is approximately 38.64% increase in the number of visiting people for last one year.
But please make sure that this is very small increase. We do grow, but very very slowly.

In terms of how people find this website, that is mostly by Google search.
