Which are some good short anime series?
This list will be long, since I will be putting a good number of well-crafted short series.
To keep my answer crisp and readable, I would be skipping details or be providing an ultra-short description of these anime.
If they pique your interest, you can check them out in the internet for the detailed plot.
However, I will be omitting those here for the obvious reasons.
So let’s get ready to rumbleee! (1) Death Note A timeless classic! Haters get hooked to anime after watching this one.

(5) Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) Humankind is on the verge of extinction - the enemy being carnivorous giants, nicknamed ‘Titans’. (6) Nanatsu no Taizai (The Seven Deadly Sins) (7) One Punch Man An epic parody, where one punch from a dude settles all fights, no matter how strong his opponents are.

Please note that these have not been listed in any definite order of preference; I just appended the new ones below the existing list.
Also, there are a lot of anime that I am yet to explore, and hence this list is nowhere close to its completion. I will add more as I watch other awesome anime in the future.
These are the short series ones.
There are some great long series anime that stand upto their reputation - Hunter X Hunter, One Piece, Naruto/ Naruto Shippuden, Bleach, Fairy Tail among many others. I hope you enjoy watching these recommendations.
