Before moving on to the story, let me make it clear that though the female lead holds a unique power, the film doesn’t involve any action or thrill. Instead, it’s a simple story with a slice-of-life theme. This movie is especially recommended to those who like overpowered main characters but want to see them in a different light! And why not? Not every movie needs to be full of action and magic. 

The story takes the viewers to the world where Tokyo is facing troubles due to the non-stop showers. People’s lives have become hectic because it’s getting challenging to continue routine tasks due to massive rains. 

Among such people, Hodaka also is struggling in his life and lack of finances just adds to his injuries. However, when he crosses paths with an orphan girl named Hina, he finally finds a solution to bring peace to the world. 

The girl holds the power to call the SUN whenever she prays! Impressive, isn’t it? The boy motivates her to use this power to bring light to many lives. However, things might not be as easy for them as they think! Nothing comes free of cost, and meddling with nature can put them in serious trouble!

So, it’s better to only dream about them because not all that shines is a Gem. This is the lesson we get after watching this 80s’ one of the most fantastic anime movies with OP MC.

He lives in a world where the strongest person wears a “Number 1” headband. Anyone wearing this headband is like a top dog in the hierarchy. To get this title, one must reach the 2nd level so that he can challenge the number 1 in a duel. Afro’s father was Number 1, and the man who killed him to get the title was Number 2. 

Watching his father’s brutal murder, young Afro’s heart filled with the fire of revenge. He grew up training to be at the level to challenge his father’s murderer.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the next one on this list is everyone’s favorite film! Spy X Family, in particular, is not limited to just a single character being overpowered. If you observe closely, Loid, Yor and Anya are all overpowered in one way or another. 

Anyhow, I am recommending this movie because of Anya Forger who has the power to read minds. I mean, Just imagine! I don’t know about you but I for sure would flip the whole world upside down if I had that power! (XD)

Loud gets another task that puts his career at risk, and he has to make a smooth way out of it. There is only one way to do that, and that is to help her daughter Anya win a particular certificate. To earn that, Anya must win a cooking competition, so the Spy Family goes all out on this task.

His desire to become the wizard king finds him a way to fulfill his dreams. The boy learns that he has anti-magic powers and unmatched abilities.
