While most of us know Megan Thee Stallion as the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper who’s dedicated to her college studies, many fans also know that she’s a true anime fan. She’s spoken multiple times about her love for the Japanese stories, but some fans wonder which ones she keeps in her rotation.
Here’s a list of some of Megan Thee Stallion’s top anime choices just in case you want to watch them on your Crunchyroll account. It should be noted that she has a special preference for the old classics over some of the newer ones, but if you dig anime, you’ll recognize these titles.
‘My Hero Academia’
Last summer, Megan covered Paper magazine dressed as the character Shoto Todoroki. The series is about Izuku, a young boy who is living in a world of superheroes but has no powers of his own.
That is until he meets the hero All Might, who shares one of his powers with the kid and sends him to superhero school. Izuku, Shoto, Katsuki, and Bakugo are among My Hero Academia’s most popular characters.
‘Attack on Titan’
If you like your anime with a twist of horror and violence, then check out the giant people-eaters in Attack on Titan and the humans trying to survive their carnage inside and outside the Titan walls.
It’s similar to The Walking Dead with giants instead of zombies, and the main character, Eren, can morph from a human into a Titan. Megan once shared that Mikasa, a badass fighter, is her favorite character.
Bleach ran from 2004 to 2012, and it was such a hot series that when it ended, no one was ready to give it up. The fandom runs deep. Ichigo is the main character, a young student who can see spirits of the dead.
Due to certain circumstances, he picks up the mantle and becomes a Soul Reaper (working for the Soul Society), protecting his town, going on adventures, and banding together with friends to battle corrupt Soul Reapers.
Megan Thee Stallion told Beat to Beat interviewers that she loves the love story in Inuyasha. The series follows a high school girl named Kagome who’s actually a reincarnated high priestess, and the half-demon Inuyasha (who has dog-like features) as they battle evil.
The long-running manga/anime has them going world-saving missions, but their relationship blossoms into a full-blown romance along the way.
Twin half-demon sons of Satan—good-natured Rin and resentful Yukio—seek to avenge their adoptive father’s death at the hands of their birth father. But Rin has to learn to use his blue flame power inherited from his dad by training in a school for exorcists.
Mirror worlds, sibling rivalry, and spiritual battles are the moving parts in Blue Exorcist. Over the summer, the rapper added the popular series to her roster.
‘Hunter X Hunter’
Hunter X Hunter is also counted as one of Megan’s faves, and the 2011 anime has become one of the genre’s most beloved for its emotional story arcs, the relatability of the charming main character Gon (who wants to be with his hunter father), the underappreciated Leorio, and the villains.
