10 anime series for siblings (November 2023)
Grave of the fireflies (1988)
You know, I had to add Grave of the Fireflies to this list because this list cannot be completed without the gorgeous and beautifully crafted Grave of the fireflies by Studio Ghibli.
The story took place in the middle of world war 2 where Seita- the elder brother tries to protect his 4-year-old sister Setsuko from the tragedies and sufferings of world war.
This anime movie is worth each and every second of time, and you should not miss this one.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (2016)
Demon Slayer is the underdog of the shonen genre. Written by Koyoharu Gotōge and Directed by Haruo Sotozaki, Demon Slayer is the perfect sibling anime where MC takes care of siblings.
The show’s protagonist Tanjiro Kamado is a Sword’s man, and he takes the ultimate journey to find a cure for his half-demon sister Nezuko Kamado.
The show is badass, and the fight scenes are a sight to see. We definitely recommend you to put Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba on your watchlist.
Full metal alchemist brotherhood (2009)
No introduction is needed for this one. Full metal alchemist has received one of the highest ratings, and it also deserves all the phrases. The show is about two brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, who try to restore their physical bodies.
After a failed attempt to bring their mother back, both of them lose some parts of their body. The MC Edward is the brother figure in the show and takes care of his brother Alphonse Elric.
Wolf Children (2012)
How often do you come across an anime with a good storyline, great animation, and a good plot? Wolf Children is the perfect anime for anime fans, and we can say it’s a door to non-anime fans into the world of anime.
The story talks about two kids who are born half-human and half-wolf. Yuki is the elder sister in charge of caring for his aggressive little brother Ame.
It’s a slice-of-life anime where the mother, Hana, finds herself in difficult situations because of her tiny wold kids.
Naruto (2002 – 2017)
Naruto is more than it looks on the surface. The sibling’s stories are so great that fans rewatched the whole series, especially Itachi’s ark, as it was the best sibling story ever created. Period.
Along with Itachi, the whole Naruto Multiverse is filled with many different stories that will definitely move your heart.
We highly suggest watching this legendary anime because it all started with Naruto.
Attack on Titan, Shingeki no Kyojin (2013-2014)
A great example of perfect storytelling, is animation, fights, plot, and intention. Attack on Titan is the only show that only gets better after every show. The last season of Attack on Titan is the best season of all. No cap
The show’s duo, Eren and Mikasa, is the highlight of the whole series. The siblings are so great at coordination that both of them protect each other, ignoring everything in their way.
No wonder why Attack on Titan made it to our list of the top 10 Anime where MC is to take care of siblings. Because it deserves all the respect from all the anime fans.
Blue Exorcist (2011)
All of us need a brother like Yukio Okamura. Even though he is not the protagonist of the story, he is an important character in the story. Yukio Okamura is the elder brother of the short-tempered Demon Brother Rin Okamura.
At some point in time, each and every fan wanted a new season of Blue Exorcist. Maybe, like Re: Zero, the fans would get a new season after more years.
The show impressively describes what it is like to have a short-tempered brother and how to take care of your siblings. A must-watch anime if you are bored with Toradora.
Bleach (2004 – 2012)
Bleach is among the big 5 anime in the anime world. The story follows the adventures of the show’s protagonist Ichigo Kurosaki.
