Top 10 Demon Animes

Top 10 Demon Animes You Must Watch 2022

June 14, 2022

Dark and ominous in other forms of entertainment such as movies, cartoons, and so forth. Tyrants known as Demons are always portrayed negatively. What about them in anime, you might wonder? Demons aren’t always nasty in anime. They are generally badass in some way and adding the title of King to that adjective, in my opinion, makes it more badass. You’ve come to the proper location if you’re trying to satisfy your demonic compulsion. We’ve compiled a list of the Top 10 Demon Animes to Watch.

Gensoumaden Saiyuuki (1 season 50 episode)

Top 10 Demon Animes Gensoumaden Saiyuuki

The monk Genjo Sanzo, the monkey king Son Goku, the half-devil Sha Gojyo, and the man who transformed into a demon Cho Hakkai are the protagonists of Saiyuki. The Sanbutsushin have ordered them to go to India in order to prevent Gyumaoh. The Ox-Demon-King from rising again. They are besieged by unskilled assassins, poor weather, and their own tragic personal histories as they go. Meanwhile, the villains, two unexpected allies Gyokumen Koushou (a demon) and Dr. Nii Jianyi (a human), continue their efforts to resurrect the long-dead king. The “Minus Wave” is spawned by these experiments, which is a prohibited blend of science and magic, infecting all of Shangri-demons La’s with madness and shattering the delicate peace that once existed between humans and demons.

The series is fantastic, and it’s easy to watch it again and over again without being bored. I may be giving it too much credit, but I believe Saiyuki is one of the greatest

Fairy Gone (2 seasons 24 episodes)

Following the War of Unification, all of Eastald’s nations are forcibly united under a single ruler. Special soldiers were implanted with Fairy organs during the battle, allowing them to summon mighty Fairies to fight for them. However, conflict continues nine years after the war’s end, as rogue Fairy Soldiers and criminals take advantage of the postwar chaos. To counter this menace, the government agency “Dorothea” is established, with the primary mission of combating illicit Fairy users. Marlya, one of Dorothea’s newest recruits, links up with experienced Fairy Soldier and Dorothea operative ‘Free’ in the hopes of finding her long–lost childhood friend Veronica, who is now an illegal Fairy Soldier working for an unknown organization attempting to reclaim the “Black Fairy Tome.”

Don’t listen to the masses; if you’re looking for an anime with a grand concept, a complicated story with several underlying threads, and some fairly great action, this is the one to see. It’s natural to be confused about a number of things at first; but, you’ll gain more clues in later episodes, and you’ll finally be able to put the puzzle together.

Number 8:

Kekkaishi (1 season 52 episodes)


Sumimura and yukimura are two clans whose members are known as keekkashi, and they have been entrusted with guarding a portion of land against ayakashi demons. They’ve been doing it for hundreds of years, and now we have Yoshimori from the Sumimura clan and Tokine from the Yukimura clan, who has been entrusted with the responsibility of protecting the territory known as Karasumori, which also happens to be the location of their school. So now they have to fight Ayakashi in a continuous combat. The story isn’t particularly original, but there are a few subplots in the anime that are entirely unique.

Kekkaishi is a wonderful anime that, in my opinion, has everything it takes to be a hit. My only criticism is the ending; it wasn’t bad, but it could’ve been better; given how the anime was going, I was expecting an epic climax, but there wasn’t one, and the fight between Kaguro and Yoshimori was a huge letdown. But, once again, the creators did everything they could to give a satisfying conclusion because the program was losing money and there was no way they could keep it going.

Number 7:

Devils and Realist (1 season 12 episodes)

Devils and Realist

The plot focused on William, a descendant of an aristocratic family with exceptional intelligence. His uncle’s business failed, and he lost all of his things one day. William returns home, fearful that his family’s reputation has been ruined, and looks with his butler for anything that can be converted into cash. An ancestor’s underground room is discovered during an investigation of the properties. A mystical seal is there in the room, and William unwittingly summons a devil. The summoned devil introduces himself as Dantalion and says that William is the designator who has the power to determine the demon world’s acting king.

I assumed it was a generic anime because it did not stick out in any way. I felt it was a little different, but I liked the art and the characters. Because the story was cut off for me, I might have given it a higher grade if it had been lengthier. It is something I’d recommend to everyone who enjoys viewing bi-shounen or attractive men. It’s probably for someone searching for a lighthearted series that doesn’t delve too far into the plot.

Number 6:

Twin Star Exorcists (1 season 50 episodes)

Twin Star Exorcists

Rokuro Enmado is a young child who was a powerful aspiring exorcist before a tragic occurrence claimed the lives of his friends, forcing him to forsake the profession. He had a fatal encounter with Benio Adashino, a young lady from the east who is a well-known exorcist. Rokuro and Benio are the “Twin Star Exorcists,” according to a prophecy, and are meant to marry and have a child known as the “Miko,” who will be the ultimate exorcist, capable of cleaning the planet of all evil spirits (Kegare) and putting an end to the millennium-long struggle.

If you don’t like cliches, I strongly recommend you to ignore this anime; the premise is a cliche, and the first episode is a cliche in and of itself. But if you don’t mind, go ahead; aside from that, there shouldn’t be anything to be disappointed about, unless it’s your own personal opinion on something that’s wrong with the anime.

Number 5:

Devil’s line (1 Season 12 Episodes)

Devil's line

Vampires are a part of society’s underbelly that walks among humans. Although they do not require blood to survive, they can become uncontrollable monsters when their bloodlust is heightened by strong emotions. After a difficult confrontation with Yuuki Anzai—a human and vampire hybrid—Tsukasa Taira, a 22-year-old university student, learns of the existence of vampires when her close buddy exposes himself to be one of them. When Tsukasa’s buddy gets arrested, she is pulled to Anzai, who reluctantly reciprocates her affections. However, Anzai is struggling to suppress the part of him that wants to devour Tsukasa, and this atypical romance may be too tough to maintain.

This anime was a lot of fun to watch. It was a pleasant change of pace from the usual cutesy romances I watch. This anime kept me on the edge of my seat as I waited to see what would happen next, and I loved the “vampire? undercover cop” premise combined with romance. It was quite new and exciting to me, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Number 4:

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan (2 Seasons 48 Episodes)

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan

Rikuo Nura is the main protagonist of the series. Nurarihyon, the Nura clan’s supreme commander, is his grandfather. Nura is one-quarter yokai due to his human mother. Once Rikuo’s yokai abilities are realized, his grandfather wants him to become the Nura clan’s leader. Rikuo grew up around yokai and believed they were cool, not realizing that humans did not believe they existed. At a clan assembly, Nurarihyon declares his plan to name Rikuo the next heir of their clan. After a few years, Rikuo wants to embrace his human nature and is no longer interested in becoming the clan’s future leader. Meanwhile, Rikuo is recruited into a new club at school dedicated to tracking down yokai, because the group’s leader is looking for the yokai that saved his life during the bus disaster earlier in the story.

Nura Rise of the Yokai Clan has an intriguing concept, in my opinion. In the end, it is a narrative of a young child who is divided between where he belongs and what he actually wants to do with his life. While yokai and demons play an important role in the tale, the series’ main message is immensely accessible to readers, particularly teenagers.

Number 3:

Devil May Cry (1 season 12 episodes)

Devil May Cry

Dante, a demon hunter, is the protagonist of Devil May Cry. He utilizes his trusty blade Rebellion and his two firearms Ebony and Ivory to take on assignments as a half-demon, half-human. Dante is the owner and operator of “Devil May Cry,” a company that specializes in demon hunting and exorcism.

I liked this anime because I wanted to see something different from the games, I wanted to see how Dante handled his business, and how he approached the jobs, and this was a refreshing change from the games, which is why it has a high rating, mostly for the enjoyment, but the surprising animation and great sound were decisive in awarding it a high score despite the weak but good story.

Number 2:

Black Butler (3 seasons 40 episodes)

Black Butler

Ciel Phantomhive is known as “The Queen’s Guard Dog,” as he looks after Her Majesty during the numerous unsettling events that occur in Victorian England. Ciel utilizes any methods required to get the task done, aided by Sebastian Michaelis, his faithful butler with nearly extraordinary talents. Is this black-clad butler, however, more than meets the eye? Ciel’s past contains a hidden tragedy that has engulfed him in eternal darkness—during one of his darkest moments, he made a deal with Sebastian, a demon, trading his soul for vengeance on those who had mistreated him. Sebastian is now not just a fantastic butler, but also the ideal servant to carry out his master’s orders—all the while awaiting the delectable supper he will prepare from Ciel’s soul. As the two attempt to figure out what’s causing Ciel’s string of disasters, they develop a relationship that neither heaven nor hell can break.

Everything comes together wonderfully, making this anime an incredible work of art, especially in terms of design and soundtrack. The music from ED 2 is still stuck in my brain, it’s so eerily lovely. Despite my initial reservations about this anime, I’m glad I watched it. So, what exactly are you waiting for? Now is the time to watch it.

The Misfit of Demon King Academy (1 season 13 episodes)

The Misfit of Demon King Academy

After 2,000 years of endless wars and turmoil, Anos Voldigoad, the demon king, made a contract with Kanon, the human hero, to sacrifice his own life so that peace could bloom. When Anos reincarnates 2,000 years later, he discovers that royal demons now rule severely over lower-class hybrid demons in a society that favors Anos pureblood offspring above demons that interbred with other species like humans and spirits. Finding that magic has begun to wane as a result of the peace he established, Anos, now technically a hybrid himself, decides to recover his former position of Demon King, but first, he must graduate from the Demon King Academy, where he is considered a total misfit.

Overall, this is an amazing show. It’s more amusing and consistent than most other Light Novel adaptations I’ve watched. I’d recommend it if you’re searching for a good light novel adaptation anime to watch.
