My Adventures with Superman is another addition to the hugely popular and ever-expanding superhero genre. It's an anime-inspired take on the notorious Man of Steel made by Adult Swim. The series follows investigative journalist Clark Kent (voiced by Jack Quaid) along with his girlfriend Lois Lane (voiced by Alice Lee) and best friend Jimmy Olsen (voiced by Ishmel Sahid), who embark on exciting adventures together.

The visually striking animation does a marvelous job in reimagining Superman for a fresh audience, emphasizing Clark's evolution of becoming a hero in all his bright-eyed and dorky glory. My Adventures with Superman soars to new heights with its lovable characters, fast-paced action and heartwarming romance that appeals to both newcomers and long-time fans of the beloved DC hero. With two seasons to enjoy, it definitely flies into our best anime shows list.

Fantasmas sees writer, director and comedian Julio Torres go on the search through New York City for a lost golden oyster earring and meeting all kinds of people along the way.

Torres reflects on the unusual characters he comes across in a dreamy alternate version of New York City through eerie and comedic vignettes.

To top off the surreal and psychedelic experience, Fantasmas has an array of exciting famous faces, with Paul Dano, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi and Emma Stone all making a surprise appearance as obscure characters. Fantasmas is a weird, wacky and wild ride that you won't want to get off.
