Anime with Immortal Main Characters
The plot is as follows: A 13-year-old hanyo or hybrid of ghouls and humans. After his parents allegedly abandoned him, he was mistreated by his aunt as hard labor for her inn, earning him the nickname “Dorotabo” since he was often smeared in dirt and smelled terrible from toiling in the fields.
Kabane subsequently learns from Inugami that he was most likely not abandoned because he possesses the Life Calculus, which quenches his ghoulish need for flesh, and sets out to find his parents while learning more about his emotions along the way. Kabane has an innocent and straightforward attitude, as well as a very self-sacrificing mentality.
Hellsing is named and centered on the Royal Order of Protestant Knights, which was founded by Abraham Van Helsing. Hellsing’s purpose is to track down and eliminate the undead and other supernatural forces of evil that are threatening the queen and the land. Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing presently leads this organization, having inherited Hellsing’s leadership as a child after her father’s death.
She is defended by the dedicated Hellsing family butler Walter C. Dornez, a deadly antagonist in his own right, and Alucard, the first and most powerful vampire, who swore allegiance to the Hellsing after being beaten by Van Helsing one hundred years before the story is set.
Seven Deadly Sins
The Seven Deadly Sins are a band of knights in Britannia that disbanded ten years ago after being framed for preparing a rebellion of the Liones Kingdom, the Holy Knights who sequestered them before seizing control in the aftermath of a rebellion they planned.
Elizabeth Liones, Liones’ third princess, locates the Seven Deadly Sins’ commander, Meliodas, before searching for his compatriots in order to clear their names and free Liones from the Holy Knights, who were duped by a demon named Fraudrin into releasing the Demon Race from their incarceration.
Set in a post-apocalyptic world driven by numbers, each human being’s worth is determined by a particular “Count” imprinted someplace on their body, which determines any number connected to a significant aspect of their lives. If this Count falls below zero, the person is dragged down into “the abyss” and is considered to be dead for all eternity.
Hina’s Count corresponds to the number of hundreds of kilometers she has walked. Since her mother was dragged into the abyss, she has spent the last five years hunting for the Legendary Ace from her mother’s final desire. Hina’s difficult trip takes an unexpected turn when she encounters a weird masked knight known as Licht Bach, who has a negative-numbered Count.
The plot follows Kuro Sakuragawa, who is trying to get over a break-up with his girlfriend. Kuro Sakuragawa was approached by Kotoko Iwanaga, a female who said that she had been in love with Kuro since she met him two years earlier.
She then informs him that she is a sort of Goddess of Wisdom who acts as a bridge between the real and supernatural worlds. Kuro initially doubts her, but after fighting a ykai in a library and revealing their true identities (Kuro is actually a monster who has eaten two different ykai meats, giving him the powers of immortality and near-absolute precognition), Kuro agrees to assist Kotoko on her various adventures as the peace-keeping Goddess of Wisdom.
Noblesse is the story of a strong noble – Cadis Etrama Di Raizel (referred to as Rai) – who has been sleeping for 820 years with no awareness of mankind’s progress and technological achievements. Rai wakes up in an abandoned building in South Korea at the opening of the webtoon and begins to adjust to modern life.
He attends a school, where he re-encounters his faithful servant Frankenstein. Rai enrolls in high school with the assistance of Frankenstein and unwittingly befriends athletic teenager Shinwoo, computer genius Ikhan, Shinwoo’s crush Yuna, and a few others. Noblesse follows the trio on their often perilous exploits against a secret organization, all while learning about Rai’s past.
The end of the popular virtual reality game Yggdrasil has arrived. Momonga, a strong wizard and lord of the dark guild Ainz Ooal Gown, however, decides to spend his final minutes in the game as the servers begin to shut down. Momonga is surprised to discover that, despite the fact that the clock has struck midnight, he is still fully awake as his character, and that the non-player characters appear to have evolved personalities of their own!
When confronted with this unusual circumstance, Momonga orders his devoted followers to assist him in investigating and taking control of this new world, in the hopes of determining what has caused this change and if there are others in the same situation.
Ajin: Demi-human presents the story of a student named Nagai Kei, who discovers he is an “Ajin” when he is fatally wounded in a traffic accident. In the world of Ajin, a small number of humans possess immortality and extreme regenerative abilities that trigger upon death, allowing them to completely recover from any mortal injury in a matter of seconds.
Ajin can also produce “black ghosts,” which are exceedingly dangerous combat-oriented creatures visible only to other Ajin. “Black ghosts” are impervious to physical harm, possess exceptional physical strength, and have razor-sharp fangs and claws. Different “black ghosts” have varying degrees of intelligence: most are fully dependant on their Ajin for directives, while others, such as Kei’s, are more self-sufficient and likely to participate in self-initiated actions.
Yuuji Itadori, a high schooler, spends his days in the clubroom or the hospital, where he visits his ill grandfather, indulging in unsubstantiated paranormal activities with the Occult Club. However, when he unintentionally comes into contact with a cursed artifact, his peaceful existence takes a bizarre turn.
After swallowing the claimed item, revealed to be a finger belonging to the demon Sukuna Ryoumen, the “King of Curses,” Yuuji finds himself forced into the domain of Curses—dreadful entities produced by human malice and negativity.
Yuuji learns firsthand about the dangers that these Curses offer to civilization as he discovers his own unique abilities. When he is introduced to the Tokyo Metropolitan Jujutsu Technical High School, he begins to walk down a path that he will never be able to return to—the path of a Jujutsu sorcerer.
Beyond the Boundary
Akihito Kanbara, a high school student, goes out of his way one day to stop his classmate Mirai Kuriyama from committing suicide. Following his pleadings, Mirai unexpectedly stabs Akihito with a sword made of her own blood and is astonished to learn that Akihito is an immortal “half-youmu”—the offspring of a mythical creature known as a youmu and a human.
After learning that Mirai is a Spirit World Warrior—specialists who protect humans from being affected by youmu—and the last surviving member of her spirit hunting clan, their lives become intertwined as Akihito tries to help Mirai gain the confidence to kill youmu so that she can stop killing him for practice.
Maquia: When The Promised Flower Blooms!
Maquia is a member of the Iorph, a race of mystical beings who may live for hundreds of years while remaining separate from the lives and daily struggles of humanity. Maquia, on the other hand, has always felt lonely despite being surrounded by her people, as she was orphaned at an early age. She fantasizes about the outside world, but she is afraid to leave her house because of the clan’s chief’s threats.
One day, however, the outside world finds her, as the power-hungry kingdom of Mezarte invades her homeland. They already have what is left of the giant dragons, the Renato, under their control, and now their king wishes to add the immortality of the Iorph to his bloodline.
The humans and their Renato annihilate the Iorph country, killing the majority of its inhabitants. Maquia is taken away by one of the Renato who has gone insane in the midst of the attack. It dries quickly, and she is abandoned in a wilderness far from home, really alone save for the screams of a single child out in the distance.
Maquia discovers the infant in a burned-out hamlet and decides to raise him as her own, naming him Ariel. Despite knowing nothing about the human world, how to nurture a child that ages far quicker than she does, or how to live with the blazing loneliness inside, she is determined to make it all work.
To Your Eternity
An Orb, only known as It, is thrown to Earth to be watched from a distance. It is capable of changing forms from the entities whose reflections it absorbs, first becoming a rock and then, as the temperature rises, moss.
It doesn’t move until a wolf at death’s door passes by on a snowy day. When It assumes the animal form, It becomes aware of its own consciousness and begins to wander with no apparent destination in mind. It soon encounters the wolf’s master—a young boy who is waiting for his tribe to return from a paradise rich in fish and fruit in the south. Despite his loneliness, the youngster thinks that those he holds dear in his memories have not forgotten him and that he will be reunited with them one day.
The boy wants to explore new surroundings and decides to leave his house with It in order to locate the paradise using the traces left behind by his tribe. What will become of the child, though, with a severely injured body and no sight of his elder comrades?
Misfit Of The Demon King Academy
After 2,000 years of endless wars and turmoil, the demon king Anos Voldigoad struck a contract with the human hero Kanon to sacrifice his own life in order for peace to flourish. When Anos reincarnates 2,000 years later, he discovers that royal demons now cruelly rule over lower-class hybrid demons in a society that favors Anos’ pureblood descendants above demons that interbred with other species, such as humans and spirits.
Anos, now technically a hybrid himself, decides to reclaim his former title of Demon King after discovering that magic as a whole has begun to decline and his descendants have become weaker as a result of the peace he created. But first, he must graduate from the Demon King Academy, where he is labeled a total misfit.
