Why is this anime so famous:

  • The main reason was the epic manga, whose readers were waving along with the story and hacked the internet such that its popularity was known to the world in 2019 only getting so many hits and likes in the social media that ultimately the animation has to be too good.
  •  You won’t be able to find the main character until the end.
  • First of all, it is a mixture of horror, shonen, drama, action and a lot more,with an amazing blend of all genres.
  • For those who are not used to big manga series, this anime is the one for you, having only  2 seasons being released, 12 episodes in each season. 
  •  Unlike other anime like Attack on Titian,  they don’t let the viewers get bored by not telling the suspense part till the end but they revealed it in the 1st episode and then let the story continue. Strange but this is what happens in the story. 

So I would recommend you can go and watch this anime on Crunchyroll, Netflix, etc.
