Anime are interesting and they also provide lots of different context for the viewer. Language learning in classroom does not use such element, especially in a country like Bangladesh. Traditional methods are being used in classes where English is treated as a subject but not a language, which is acquired better than learned forcefully. Use of books, black boards and white boards are very common and monotonous. Different studies have been done worldwide on this idea of using anime to teach English but in most of the cases they are used as material or, as secondary source. In this study, anime was used in direct and explicit way to see impact of using anime on students in an ESL classroom. The survey was done on two different groups which were the controlled and the experimental group. The findings showed that the impact of watching anime in class was positive and students were focused on class.
