Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin, is one of the most famous and best anti-hero series. The series is based on the fight of humanity against giant man-eaters, but as the chapters pass, the story becomes quite political and eventually turns upside down.

Another series with the anti-hero concept that got famous insanely. Code Geass is something you shouldn’t miss, as it has all the things that you expect from a perfect manga.
From the crazy action to the well-written characters, the series has it all. The best character is Lelouch who can sacrifice anything for his people and nation, but this stubbornness of his became quite dangerous for people around him.
The series took a sad turn in the end. You have to read all the chapters to understand what I meant here.

Humans are social beings, and the most painful thing someone can experience is when people around him/her don’t even value his/her existence. The series, Another, is based on a similar concept.
The student of a junior high school, Kouichi Sakakibara returns to school after a long sickness. He was infatuated with the girl whom he met in the hospital, named Mei Misaki, but he noticed that no one really cared about her existence, and a dreadful fear was always present in people’s heads when she was present in class.

The concept of vampires is not new indeed, but it has been serving a great number of mysteries for quite a long time. It seems that Bakemonogatari reinvented the same concept but in a new style.
The story is based on a school girl, Koyomi Araragi, who managed to survive the fierce vampire attack with the help of a certain someone. But this attack made a devastating change in her normal life, like Superhuman healing abilities, enhanced vision, etc.
