Top 5 Manly Anime

No more gushy love stuff like last time.

Here's our list of

Top 5 Manly Anime

(Also known as "Manime.")

#5 - Baki the Grappler

Just one look at hero Baki and you're transported to one of those Old Spice commercials.

Like many kids, Baki Hamma wants to be just like Dad. Only difference is Baki's papa is the strongest fighter in the world, and following father's footsteps means bashing in everyone's heads.

#4 - Berserk

The main character's name is "Guts." And that red stuff flying around is not spaghetti sauce. 'Nuff said.

#3 - Gurren Lagann

This is mecha--manly style. You've got beastmen piloting Gunmen, and a whole series of mecha that get bigger and badder.

And remember, "Don't believe in the you who believes in me. Don't believe in the me who believes in you. Believe in the you who believes in yourself."

Whatever that means. True "guy logic."

#2 - Golgo 13

Duke Togo, professional assassin, is just like James Bond, professional spy, minus the charisma. You do the math.

#1 - Fist of the North Star

Literally translated from Japanese to mean "Fist of the Big Dipper," this show is a doozy.

Post-apocalyptic world? Check.

Stolen girlfriend? Yup.

"Fist" in the title? Bonus.

Martial arts fighting with violent gory deaths? Do you have to ask?

And that's our list of Top 5 Manly Anime. Chuck Norris would be proud.
