Best slot games based on popular anime franchises

Anime is a unique style of Japanese animation. Despite having its origins in Japan, anime has grown across the world and it is now one of the most popular forms of animation. Anime has spanned several forms of entertainment, including online gambling and we have seen the introduction of some fantastic online slots based on anime.

Ghost in the Shell is a notable example of an online slot game based on a popular anime franchise. Ghost in the Shell is a Japanese cyberpunk media franchise based on a Manga series first released in 1989. The story is based on a fictional counter-cyberterrorist organization and stars Major Motoko Kusanagi. There have been several anime adaptions of the series and two animated films have been released, in addition to a live action movie. A Ghost in the Shell video game was released in 1997, with the most recent addition based on the story out in 2016. Therefore, being such a popular anime franchise, it came as no surprise to see a slot game released courtesy of 888 Software. The Ghost in the Shell online slot was released in 2016 and features stunning action sequences, in addition to the traditional style of animation on and surrounding the reels. The anime sci-fi theme has been captured perfectly in this slot game, with the graphics and soundtrack providing a tremendous experience for players. If you have been searching for a high-quality online slot game based on a popular anime franchise, look no further than Ghost in the Shell.

Moving on, and we come to another anime franchise that has taken the world by storm in Neon Genesis Evangelion. The original run of the anime television series ran between 1996 and 1996 in Japan and is set in the futuristic fortified city of Tokyo-3. The city is set in a world following a cataclysm and the main protagonist, Shinji, is a teenage boy who is collaborating with his father to develop and pilot a bio-machine mecha named “Evangelion”. The aim of the machine is to fight against other beings, called “Angels” and the series not only received critical claim for exploring the emotions and thoughts of the characters but also plenty of controversy, especially for the final two episodes. Nonetheless, films, books, and video games were released and it only seemed natural an online slot would follow. The Evangelion online slot is developed by 888 Gaming and has 40 paylines, five reels and four rows. The anime artwork is tremendous and the symbols on the reels include stars from the television show, such as Shinji Ikari, Asuka Langley, Ray Ayanami, Gendo Ikari, and Mari Illustrious. The top paying symbol is the Wormhole and the in-game wild is the NERV logo, meaning the slot game is dripping in the theme of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion television series.

We now head back to the 1980s for our next anime themed slot game. Fire and Ice Island slot by Genesis Gaming is based on the adventure anime show of the same name. The slot does not feature any of the same characters from the original series but it is based on the show, with excellent characters and lovely animated graphics. 

Interestingly, some of the top online anime slots are not based on any franchise in particular, with Koi Princess by NetEnt, Magical Stacks by Playtech, and Fortune Girl by Microgaming being three good examples of anime themed slots. Casumo has the best online slots and you will find some excellent anime slots at the casino, in addition to a wealth of other themes.
