Hello everyone! Today for this post will be a special top 10 anime. This top 10 post will focus on the upcoming Marvel movie Captain America: Civil War. Online, there have been people picking sides on either Captain America and Iron Man. I, for one, chooses Captain America and his team even though it means I have to go against my favorite hero Spider-Man. To those who read the comic books may know what is going to happen but I bet the movie will be different. Who will win this war?
Before I get distracted, I want to share my top 5 anime for both teams on which I think they belong to if they were given the choice to participate in the war. Imagine, Captain America asking for help from the anime world or Iron Man choosing his teams to stop Captain and help cooperate with the government. This list will have the same anime but it will have different people (For example: Goku and his family is on Team Captain and Vegeta and his family is on team Iron Man). Also, there is no particular order. They all just appeared to my head.
5. Naruto – Sasuke (Team Captain America) vs Naruto (Team Iron Man)
I believe Sasuke will pick Captain’s side and Naruto would pick Iron Man. I think Sasuke would mostly be suitable for Captain’s side is that both don’t agree with the high officials. In Civil War, Captain America refuses to cooperate with the government and sign the Superhero Registration Act (a document from federal law that limits a superhero’s powers and ability and have them controlled by the government). Not to mention in the movie, Captain goes out of his way to save his friend Bucky from Iron Man. He is willing to betray his friends for one. Sasuke, however will be willing to leave everything for his goals. Going back to back to his past actions, he left his village for power to kill Itachi and later he wanted to destroy the Five Kages.
Naruto will be on the other side. Naruto, in the manga, teamed with all the shinobi from the nations in the war to save the war from Madara. I can see Naruto teaming up with the government and trying to bring peace on both sides.
4. Bleach – Ichigo (Team Captain America) vs Soul Society (Team Iron Man)
I am not sure if Ichigo would do this alone or with friends, but I think he would fit in with Captain’s team. If he had friends, it would mostly be Orihime, Chad, Uryu, Yoruichi, Kisuke, and Ganju. Both Steve and Ichigo have something in common: they both a goal to protect a friend and the only people stopping them are the ones that powerful and they are all follow the laws. Ichigo and his friends were willing to fight to save Rukia from the Soul Society and Steve is willing to do the same, even if it means fighting Tony and the government. Likewise the government, the Soul Society would fit in with Iron Man since they do follow the rules to preserve peace.
3. One Piece – Straw Hat Crew (Team Captain America) vs World Government (Team Iron Man)
The Worlf Government from One Piece will definitely side Iron Man especially if Akainu is now the fleetway admiral. If you thought paying taxes was scary, the World Government will make shake. Already having an army and having devil fruit users, they could try to even capture all the heroes. Opposing them would be the Straw Hat Crew. They are wild bunch and they would not agree to side with the government. Luffy and his friends even fought CP9 to save Robin. If Luffy and his team needs help the got Captain’s side and the alliance from their series.
2. Akame ga kill! – Night Raid (Team Captain America) vs The Jaegers (Iron Man)
Even though they are not considered good guys, Night Raid will however fight corruption. Night Raid may be killers but they won’t hesitate to save friend. Especially when they fought to save Tatsumi from the Capital and Exdeath. The Jaegers, however, are not friendly with those who oppose. The Jaegars are not only powerful with their Imperial Arms but they have the Capital supporting them. Imagine if them teamed up with the Iron Man and the government. This could be a bloody Civil War.
1. Seraph of the End – Yuichiro and his friends (Team Captain) vs the Japanese Imperial Demon Army (Team Iron Man)
Any Seraph of the End fans will know is that Yu, without a doubt, will risk his own life for another friend. Yu in the anime goes through extreme measures to protect his friends in the army and tries to save his vampiric friend (also part of his family) Mika. Along with the friends he made, Yu would pick Captain because they both fight to save a friend. Personally, I feel that the Japanese Imperial Demon Army, would fit in with Iron Man. They seem like the kind of people that would follow the guidelines and will even fight their comrades with brute force. They also try to get in Yu’s way when he is trying to save Mika from vampires without killing him. If you have been reading or watching the anime, they are very strict group with high standards. You wouldn’t to pick a fight against an army.
Well, that is all folks! These are the top 5 anime that popped in my head that I think they would fight in the Marvel’s Civil War. What kind of anime would join the war and which side do you think they would choose? Comment below and thank you for reading.
Captain America: Civil War begins at May 6th, Friday.
