A super powerful Main Character capable of doing anything may seem one-sided in an anime story. Still, these series are entertaining even with an OP MC. When used to describe a protagonist in any story, the term “overpowered” or “OP” quickly becomes a super strong term.
In the anime world, a select few have the ability, powers, strength, or skills to control not just their own bodies but entire armies and legions of people or maybe entire humanity. These are the Masters of Combat and some of the most powerful characters in any given show. Here are 15 of the best anime with Overpowered MCs.
