Unique anime settings

Tired of constantly seeing animes with the same fantasy/modern/space settings? It's like the anime industry only knows of 3 settings! Try these for a welcome break from the norm.
1 Kino's Journey

Kino's Journey

each ep takes place in a different country, with a different society and political climate.

2 Amagi Brilliant Park

Amagi Brilliant Park

Set in a amusement park

3 Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan

It's the last city on earth, surrounded by walls, and after that, giant monsters

4 Chrome Shelled Regios

Chrome Shelled Regios

In a world where everyone lives in these walking domed cities 

5 Death Parade

Death Parade

Set in a bar in the afterlife. One of the things that makes the setting cool is how isolated it is from everything. Just a bunch of bars, in the afterlife.

6 Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet

On a future earth where there is no land and everyone lives on these enormous conglomerations of ships

7 Erin


Setting changes a bit, but the first one is a town where they raise dragons for the military. Also cool art style and unique plot, if  rather slow

8 Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee

Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee

A completely dark world without a sun, except for one star hanging above the capital. The closer you get the more light there is and the better the people live.

9 A Lull in the Sea

A Lull in the Sea

A costal town, split in two, with one half above the water, populated by normal humans and the other half below, populated by people who can breathe underwater.

10 Nanbaka


A prison anime?!

11 Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers

Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers

Would be a vanilla fantasy world, but instead of medieval cities it's got this Aztec temple sort of thing going on.

12 Young Black Jack

Young Black Jack

A spin off of an older anime, it's set in the 60s and 70s. Vietnam war era.
