Since last week, i was watching classic anime, So i thought why not make a recommendation list of classic anime series. But i remembered, that previously i already made similar kind of list. So i trimmed down my choices and prepared a list of top 10 manliest classic anime series which according to me are worth watching!.
Top 10 Manliest Classic Anime Series
Note : The list (Top 10 manliest classic anime series) is not arranged according any kind of ranking or any kind of poll votes, this list is just randomly arranged list.
01. City Hunter
Quick pitch – City hunter’s story revolves around a man named “Saeba Ryo”, who is an world class sweeper, in the underground world. Although this guy is definitely manly, he is also an open pervert. Watch Ryo and his friends take on dangerous terrorist, mafia, syndicates and yakuza of the underworld, in city hunter anime.
02. Golgo 13
Quick pitch – Golgo 13 is similar to that of city hunter, its story revolves around an underground sweeper. The only difference is that this guy loves works alone and he is damn too serious. Overall this series is way more mature than city hunter and packs quite a punch.
03. Houkuto no ken
Quick pitch – When we’re talking about the top 10 manliest classic anime series, Hokuto no ken is so manly, that even John cena loves this anime. The story of this revolves around the protagonist kenshirou, who wanders around post apocalyptic wasteland in order to find his fiancee who was kidnapped by his best friend “Shin”.

06. Salaryman Kintarou
Quick pitch – If the above mentioned 5 anime series, teaches you the art of manliness. Then Salaryman Kintarou shows you what a true man is. Salaryman Kintarou revolves around the protagonist named “Yajima Kintarou” who was once a leader of a biker gang known as “Hasshu league” which was feared and respected by many.

But after she passes away, he comes to city to with his son, for fulfilling final request of his wife and that is to become a “Salaryman.”
Quick pitch – GTO or Great teacher onizuka, revolves around Onizuka Eiichirou, who is a former bike gang leader, aiming to become world’s greatest honorable teacher.
08. Golden boy
Quick Pitch – If you like GTO then you will also like Golden boy, however, even though Golden boy anime is in the list of top 10 manliest classic anime. Its manlier in a different way, this anime is something, which is hard to describe. Well, at least for me.
The story of the anime revolves around the protagonist Oe Kintaro, who is on a journey to learn everything he founds interesting (i mean everything). Although, usually, he is a pervert but he can be manly when the time comes. This anime has only 6 episodes but its a worthy watch.
Quick pitch – Vash the Stampede is the man with a $$60,000,000,000 bounty on his head. The reason: he’s a merciless villain who lays waste to all those that oppose him and flattens entire cities for fun, garnering him the title “The Humanoid Typhoon.” But the reality is quite opposite

10. Tiger Mask
Quick Pitch – Tiger Mask (whose real name was Naoto Date) was a feared heel wrestler in America who was extremely vicious in the ring. However, he became a face after returning to Japan when a young boy said that he wanted to be a villain like Tiger Mask when he grew up. The boy resided in an orphanage, the same one that Tiger Mask grew up in during his childhood. Feeling that he did not want the boy to idolize a villain, Tiger was inspired to be a heroic wrestler.
The main antagonist in the manga and anime was Tigers’ Den, a mysterious organization that trained young people to be villainous heel wrestlers on the condition that they gave half of their earnings to the organization. Tiger Mask was once a member of Tigers’ Den under the name “Yellow Devil”, but no longer wanted anything to do with them, instead donating his money to the orphanage. This infuriated the leader of the organization and he sent numerous assassins, including other professional wrestlers, to punish him.
