Top 5 Favorite Shows to Binge Watch

January 6, 2023

It’s finally the time of year when it’s bitterly cold, like it’s supposed to be, and it’s the perfect chance to cuddle up and watch enticing shows.  Check out my top five binge worthy shows below.

1. “One Piece”

One piece is an animated show from Japan. The show is based on a Manga that was first released on July 22, 1997. The creator, Eiichiro Oda, started the show, “One Piece”, on October 20, 1999. The show currently has 1045 episodes, with it still being ongoing. Each episode is around 25 minutes long. One piece is about a boy named Luffy, going out to find a crew, and becoming the king of pirates. At first the show seems to be about going on one huge adventure so that Luffy can reach his goal, but throughout the show you start to realize that there are many real world problems such as slavery, racism, poverty, abuse of power, Genocide, descrimination, etc. This show opened my eyes, showing me not just a wonderful adventure and great friendships, but many real world issues that our world still faces today. “One Piece” would be considered a great show to binge due to how long it is.

2.”Vinland Saga”

“Vinland Saga” follows a young boy, Thorfinn, during the 1013 AD period. This Japanese animated show was released in July 2019 by Yukimura Makoto. Throughout the show, Thorfinn travels with his fathers killer in order to take revenge through an honorable duel as a warrior. This show is very enticing right off the bat, showing not only grief, but determination as well. “Vinland Saga” is originally based off of a manga that was released on October 14, 2013, and the show is currently ongoing with its second season being released on January 9th of 2023.

3.”Dr. Stone”

“Dr.Stone” follows a 15 year old boy, Senku Ishigami, and his journey to bring back civilization. This story starts in the year 2019 when humanity was suddenly petrified, and continues in April of 5738 when Senku suddenly revived 3,700 years later to find himself in a world with no trace of human civilization. “Dr.Stone” is a very inviting show, allowing the person watching to get a look inside the mind of a young genius, as well as giving the watcher a sense of excitement. This show was released on July 5, 2019 by Boichi and Riichiro Inagaki. “Dr.Stone” is currently ongoing with its third season being released in April of 2023.

The show specifically follows a teenage boy called Shinichi Izumi, and a parasite that infested his arm. Shinichi has to learn to coexist with the creature if they both want to survive. This show is not just suspenseful, but also allows the watcher to look outside the box when the characters are faced with difficult decisions.
