Favourite Animes

Yeah. This is a thing. And yes, it IS ordered. Note: If an anime on this list has two or more seasons, then I wil put my favourite season to represent it here.
I this list
1 Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann image
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Holy shit.

I never once thought that Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann would end up as my favourite anime. Hell not even in my Top 3 at the time of watching.

But god damn, this show is something else.

Your Lie in April, FMA:B and Sakurasou are all amazing, but Gurren Lagann... jesus.

The animation is charming. With the exception of episode 4, I felt the animation to completely fit the style and direction of the show. The music was also awesome. Whether goofy or awesome, or just simply (cringy word choice incoming but I can't think of anything else) epic, it fit the tone of the show when it needed to. Libera me From Hell is one of the best musical pieces I've ever heard. This show also is pretty damn feelsy, episode 8 of course. The characters are also amazing. From the always positive over the top Kamina, the hilarious Kittan, the innocent Nia, the intimidating Viral or the badass Yoko, the cast of characters was always a joy to watch, no matter where in the show it was. It had very good progression as well, 27 episodes was a perfect count for how long the show needed. I was 100% satisfied with how the show went.

I also have to dedicate an entire paragraph to the best protagonist I've ever seen, Simon. Simon started off as a shy nervous wreck of a character who'd always just rely on Kamina. I kinda disliked him at first. Up to episode 8, we'd seen him gain a bit of confidence, and I liked him at this point. After that, he turned into a giant douchebag, understandable. But I really didn't like him at this point. Then his awakening happened, and I loved him. I loved him so damn much. And as the series kept going on, I loved him more and more. Because of how the show progressed, there wasn't a time where Simon wasn't developing, and because of that, I'd happily nominate Simon for the most developed character EVER. By the end of the series, it's easy to see how much he'd developed and you didn't even have to go back and watch it again, it did it right then and there. The conversation between Kamina and Simon right at the end is one of my favourite moments in any sort of media. The entire universe is at stake, and what do they mention? How much taller Simon was than Kamina at that point. And it's that tiny little detail I love. It's such a brilliant example of friendship in a show, and it works so well. Once again, Simon is easily my nominee for the character with the best development.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is easily my favourite anime. It's the most fun I've had watching a show, and watching Simon alone was enough to warrent it at #1 for me. It's the first show I'd recommend to any sort of anime fan period.

2 Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo image
Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo

What a show.

No really, what a show.

Sakurasou is probably one of the most relatable shows for a person like me. All the characters share similar interests to mine (Voice acting, acting in general, programming, gaming, art, scriptwriting, etc.), so an absolute love right there. All of the characters are such a joy to watch, even if at some points it absolutely rips your soul apart. They all develop so much, and watching them all together is definitely this show's strong point. The animation is also very charming and unique, it's very bright and colourful, and definitely fits the show. The music is also damn good too, nothing special, but helps compliment the show.

I have to hand it to the characters though. They all felt so human, I would suggest this show for the characters alone. Finally, I have to mention the fact that this is the most involving anime I've ever seen. It makes you want to join in with the characters so much. In episode 11 (I believe) when they show off their game with the giant cat mech, I actually found myself joining in. In episode 23 (One of the best episodes of animation I've ever watched in my life), I felt so involved, I was rooting for Sorata and the rest of the characters, and the tears were flooding out of my eyes so much at that point. This show is a show that is constantly rivalling Gurren Lagann for my favourite, and while I do prefer Gurren Lagann, I will infinitely commend Sakurasou for giving it a DAMN good challenge.

Can I also just say that the first ED theme, Days of Dash, is probably my favourite song ever. No matter when I listen to it, it always manages to put me in a good mood.

3 Your lie in April image
Your lie in April

The most recent finish (For Top 5 at least) at the time of writing this, and I gotta say this was an absolute rollecoaster of a show. It has humour, it has charm, it has music, it has all sorts of feelsy moments, but most of all it had satisfaction. At the end of a performance I always felt satisfied with how Kousei, Kaori, Aiza, Emi or whever else, performed, and it was such a sight to see the development of Kousei. The characters are all very well written, and all develop at least (Even if I didn't really enjoy Tsubaki's development). The animation has it's quirks sure, but for what it was, A-1 Pictures did an absolutely stunning job when it came to the performances. The music is easily the standout part of this show, absolutely stunning, and I love the direction Kousei and Kaori went with it. Overall a very charming show that is bound to make you cry at some point. It took until one of the very last lines of the show for me to cry, and god damn did the tears flow out.

The only major flaw I can think of is that sometimes it transitions from depressing to comedy a bit too fast for my liking, and often when it does that it takes away from the seriousness of the show.

The first OP is also one of my favourite songs ever, might I add.

4 Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood image
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Literally the "perfect anime". There are VERY few flaws with Brotherhood, and to be honest they aren't easy to find either. You have to dig deep to find a few, and that's why I like it. Otherwise, what you're getting is pretty much flawless. The characters are all done so well, and there wasn't a time where I said "Oh I really wish I could see that character more" or "I fucking despise this c*ntbag". I either loved, liked or at the most, only disliked the character (Yes even Shou Tucker because he was in one whole episode, even if what he did was dispicable). Ed is hands down one of the best written characters of all time, there wasn't once where he just suddenly up and assholed on everyone for absolutely no reason, and was always determined no matter what. The music was also pretty good as well, while I don't remember a lot of it, there wasn't a time where I felt the sound was grading my ears. The opening themes are all good, especially OP4, and the ending themes are also very good too. The animation is easily one of my favourite parts, because it's so charmful, and always filled with colour, never too bright on the eyes either. It was just right, and the only time where the colour dimmed was when it had to fit the mood, which was such a perfect move. I also enjoyed the occasional use of chibis, another charm to add. And finally the plot progressed at such a perfect rate. I didn't feel I was missing anything, and at the end of this 64 long episode journey, I was absolutely 100% satisfied.

5 Clannad After Story image
Clannad After Story

Hands down the biggest tearjerker on this list. This show will absolutely rip your soul apart. The characters, especially Tomoya and Nagisa develop so god damn much, easily some of my favourite development I've seen, and even when we're right at the end of the show with about 7 episodes left, we're STILL seeing Tomoya develop which is fucking crazy. The songs used all fit the mood, whether it's gloomy, happy, depressing or satisfying, they all accompany the anime so well. The animation can be a bit off here and there, but I still like it nonetheless. And while the dub is questionable, I still enjoy it, as David and Luci did absolutely AMAZING jobs as both Tomoya and Nagisa once again (Especially David, he really brought Tomoya's character to life).

6 Death Parade image
Death Parade

Probably the most interesting anime from its concept alone, Death Parade is definitely worth a watch, hell worth marathoning (If only because it's 12 episodes). Good animation, good music, godlike OP, and it can make shit like Darts, Twister and even bloody Air Hockey tense as hell.

7 Steins;Gate image
Steins;Gate

Steins;Gate is a show that pretty much does everything right. Comedy, suspense, mystery, plot progression, characterization, even fucking romance. It's a show that, while the first episodes are slow, is a show everyone should watch because it does SO many things right. It's a very entertaining watch and you really won't want to stop watching it once past the first 3 or 4 episodes.

8 Assassination Classroom TV image
Assassination Classroom TV

An anime that manages to stay consistently good through 22 episodes. That's a challenge, and I commend AssClass for being able to do that. Absolutely hilarious with a good amount of action and suspense, and it balances them so damn well. Solid cast of characters, even if I would like to see some more from the other classmates that didn't get enough screentime (COUGHRITSUCOUGH). Although Karma and Nagisa are enough tbh. Looking forward to that second season.

9 Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion image
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

My gateway anime. Code Geass is the reason why I watch fuckloads of anime, and for that, I will always love it. I mean, it's an absolutely stellar show anyway so yeah.

Absolutely amazing watch, love the gigantic constant battle between morals, how it all relates to chess (always been a fan of chess so bonus points there) the characters are great, awesome OST, and the whole long legs/chins thing I feel gives this anime a sort of uniqueness. I love pretty much everything about this show, and I'm glad it got me into anime.

10 Love Live! School Idol Project 2 image
Love Live! School Idol Project 2

I swear I watched Love Live as a joke.

Regardless, I think it's BECAUSE I watched it for a joke, and BECAUSE I didn't really expect too much of it, that I like it so much. It actually manages to get somewhere despite having a rather thin plot. The characters are all unique, and they all get their development (Which is really surprising to me, I only thought that Honoka, Umi, Kotori, Hanayo and Eli would get development). The music is great, and overall I was stupidly surprised at what I got out of Love Live.

11 Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They? image
Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren't They?

I honestly don't know why I like an anime this short so much.

Love the cast, and the concept. Pretty stellar animation, and overall it's just a blast to watch. Izayoi is perfection in every way possible. I can't say much else other than it's a short and fun watch.

In terms of 10 episode anime, if you've seen "Mental Choices" and haven't seen this, you're missing out BIG TIME.

12 Psycho-Pass image
Psycho-Pass

Love the setting, and the animation is top notch here. Psycho-Pass is also another one of the "best" anime on this list, and it's not hard to see why. Lovable cast, lovable villain, good plot progression, and it's just overall an interesting show that WILL suck you in the more you watch.

13 To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S image
To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S

Index: Pretty decent show all around, nothing hugely bad, and it had it's awesome moments. Touma is a really decent protagonist, and the side characters are all awesome (Especially Accelerator even if I want to punch him in the face so badly). Nothing godlike, but nothing really negative either. Solid show.

Index II: A HUGE step up from the original Index. Aside from the first arc, I loved every other arc present here. Also love the focus on Accelerator towards the end, y'know, considering he's kind of my favourite character of the show. Also loved a lot of the antagonists, Amata Kihara and Vento of the Front especially.

Railgun: Fun show, sure it has a lot of slice of life moments, but it has enough decent action to make it worth watching. It really focuses on the main 4 and that's what I like about it.

Railgun S: With a new season comes a new tone. Holy jesus, this season is dark. Like really dark. And fucked up too. But that's what I love about it. Similar to SNAFU, its change in tone is definitely for the better.

Index Movie: Damn solid movie here, loved how it wasn't just the Index cast and had Uiharu and Ruiko in there too, it felt more like an actual Raildex movie rather than a strictly Index movie like the title (An to an extent, the promo art) suggests.

Add in 17 (total) awesome OP [8 total] and ED [9 total including the movie ED] themes to boot, awesome show right here. If you're up for watching a long show, Raildex is something I would recommend. Was it worth 96 episodes AND a movie? Absolutely. Is it in need of Index season 3? Maybe. Is it in need of Railgun season 3? OH YES IT IS

14 Inu x Boku SS image
Inu x Boku SS

An extremely cute little show right here. I ended up liking this show a LOT more than I thought I would. Inu X Boku may be short, but don't let that turn you away. It does its romance surprisingly well for a 12 episode show, and I love all of the characters. The animation just takes the cake. It shows how god damn CUTE everything can be, especially with its use of chibis.

If you like cute, go watch this show. You will awwwww all over the place.

15 The Eden of Grisaia image
The Eden of Grisaia

Fruit of Grisaia: Solid show right here, started off really well, then episode 6 - 9 came along and I was kinda ehhhhh and everything (episode 7 was alright, episode 9 was a clusterfuck and I didn't get anything out of it). However, episode 10 onwards is fucking fantastic and I loved it so much, easily the best part of the show, but whether it's worth going through the rest is completely up to you (Personally I'd say yes if you watched up to episode 6). The main characters are all lovable in someway, and they all get a bit of development. I also love the animation, from what I've seen they tried as best they could to recreate the style of the visual novel, and they did a damn good job at it. The OP theme is also pretty good, and I loved the multitude of ending themes they had.

Labyrinth of Grisaia: Pretty damn good, explains a lot of stuff that got me confused in the Fruit and also hypes up the Eden.

Eden of Grisaia: This is like 10000000000 times better than the Fruit and I'd watch it just for this. It doesn't have the characterisation that the Fruit has, but it's just overall a more enjoyable experience, and has a lot more of a lovable cast. Also makes me give a damn about Yuuji a HELL of a lot more than I did in the Fruit. Add a godlike OP theme and you have one of the best second seasons I've ever seen.

16 Hagure Yuusha no Estetica image
Hagure Yuusha no Estetica

Literally the anime made to suit my tastes the most. Blue haired protag, likable cast, fucking hilarious and definitely suits my sense of humour the most. Akatsuki is what made the anime so good. Think of him like a blue haired Izayoi (Problem Children) except more perverted, not voiced by Josh Grelle more rather Eric Vale (Who definitely works better for the character and the performance is absolutely amazing) and wields a giant fucking sword rather than being straight up overpowered with every punch.

Basically, you watch this show for Akatsuki.

17 High School DxD NEW image
High School DxD NEW

Why does this show exist?

I don't know why, but god damn I love it. I originally watched this because I wanted to try another ecchi anime, and heard that this was CERTAINLY ecchi. Well they definitely weren't wrong. But not only is it ecchi, its humour is just my thing. I've always had a thing for perverted comedy, and this show does that justice. I love the cast, and the animation is surprinsgly good for a show like this. Especially considering when I watched BorN, it was also the time I watched School Days (Which were both done by the same studio)

Also the dub is one of the greatest things I've ever seen.

IN THE THIRD SEASON JOSH GRELLE HAS GRACED US WITH HIS PRESENCE AND OH MAN IS IT BEAUTIFUL

18 No Game No Life image
No Game No Life

Always loved this show. Unique, charmful animation, solid protagonists, and overall for being about video games, it's a very well thought out show. It also has one of my favourite concepts for a show I've seen as well. Sora is like Lelouch levels of intellectual, and when put into a universe like this, it still surprisingly works, and I love it for that. It acomplishes exactly what it sets out to do, and I'd highly recommend this to any gamer out there. It's right up your ally.

19 Date a Live 2 image
Date a Live 2

Not gonna lie, I've always had a soft spot for Date a Live. I've always gotten a kick out of this show. I love most of the cast, and the whole concept of the show is something I love. How to get rid of foreign alien spirits with all sorts of magical powers? Dating them of course! It's dumb sure, but I've always liked it. Not to mention it has a surprisingly decent OST too.

20 Fate/Zero 2 image
Fate/Zero 2

Probably the most beautiful looking anime on this list (Great job ufotable. Always the OG of animation), Fate/Zero doesn't disappoint. Each episode is tense, and the show always finds a way to get you to keep watching. Aside from the hour long episode 1, all of the episodes are a joy to watch. I find a lot of the characters lovable, and the action scenes are very well done.

Also when your favourite episode is one where 3 of the main characters are just talking for 18 minutes, then yeah. Pretty solid show.

21 Fairy Tail image
Fairy Tail

I only picked up Fairy Tail because it had a good OST. Then I watched it and it was hella fun. Great fight scenes, great cast of lovable characters, and some pretty solid animation. Tenrou Island, Oracion Seis, Tower of Heaven, Grand Magic Games, and now Tartarus, are all amazing arcs, and I love Edolas WAY more than I should.

Oh and the OST is beyond godlike.

Yes sure it suffers a bit from shounen clichés but I can still enjoy it regardless.

22 Toradora! image
Toradora!

Gotta love the romcoms.

Complete comedy for the first 12 episodes, and it's overall cheery and happy.

The rest of the show will destroy your soul.

All 5 main characters are really well developed and you do feel a bond with them as the show goes on. Ryuuji is also another top tier protagonist.

Also the fact this is a 2008 show is still unbelievable.

23 Sound! Euphonium image
Sound! Euphonium

An anime that looks like a complete carbon copy of K-On! (Hell they're both done by KyoAni), but is actually nothing like it. It's got a few moe moments, but not many. Solid cast of characters, Kumiko is a top-tier protagonist. Absolutely beautiful and stunning animation, easily one of the best animated shows period. Plus a pretty good OST to boot. Kinda sad it was only 13 episodes, but I immensly enjoyed what we got anyway, so it's not too big of a problem.

24 Hataraku Maou-sama! image
Hataraku Maou-sama!

Another super hilarious show with some decent action thrown in there. Seeing the great lord Satan himself work at McDonalds is something I thought I'd never see. Seems I was wrong. It also has some solid animation, and a pretty good dub too.

25 Motto To Love-Ru image
Motto To Love-Ru

I was extremely surprised by To Love-ru. I thought it was going to be a good at best ecchi comedy, putting it around where Rosario + Vampire is, maybe a little higher.

But holy hot damn (Literally), this took me by surprise. To Love-ru is surprisingly one of the better ecchi comedy's out there, and sure it goes above and beyond with it's fanservice and anime titties (At least for the uncensored version), I kinda guessed we were getting that anyway. Even then, it's better than watching white and purple blurs for a good 20 minutes. It's also a good show to see how much XEBEC's animation has improved. Starting in 2008 with the wacky over the top, but charmful, animation and in 2009, Motto To Love-ru sets the standards for whats to be improved upon in 2012's Darkness, and 2015 Darkness 2nd. It's simply beautiful to look at and definitely one of my favourite transitions because it looks so nice and polished.

A great set of characters, I love the animation, and catchy as hell OPs.

26 Kore wa Zombie desu ka? Of the Dead image
Kore wa Zombie desu ka? Of the Dead

One of the funniest shows I've ever seen. It does it's comedy SO well, and it almost never takes itself seriously, especially in the second season. Even then, there are serious moments, including in episode 11 where Ayumu's speech to the King of the Night about Eucliwood is holy hella impactful, compared to the rest of the show it's almost out of place haha.

Also Ayumu for best Austin Tindle role.

27 The Testament of Sister New Devil image
The Testament of Sister New Devil

Oh look, another show I like much more than I should.

It has a solid main cast, and has some decent action and perverted comedy. It's an anime that's literally right up my ally, and it pretty much ticks all my boxes. While I did desire a bit more, we're getting a second season and I can't wait for that.

Also Maria is why I like this show so much. A character like her is what the show needed, and I'm so glad Maria exists in the show.

28 K-On!! image
K-On!!

MOE.

Aside from just simply moe, I liked K-On a lot more than I thought I would. I kinda stopped a little while watching the second season, however I'm glad I picked it up again, because after that it got so much better. There's a LOT of characterisation and you really feel like you bond to the characters. For being a simple slice of life moe show about teenage girls doing girly things, there's a surprising amount of progression, and it really does feel satisfying. Also not gonna lie it gets surprisingly feelsy towards the end.

All in all, it's a lot better than I thought it was going to be. Massive surprise with this one.

29 Seiken Tsukai no World Break image
Seiken Tsukai no World Break

Similar to Trinity Seven and Gonna be the Twin-tails!, World Break is alright as an anime. I just like it a lot more than I should.

There are a bunch of decent characters, and I absolutely LOVE this show's humour. It definitely got a good laugh out of me.

30 Durarara!! image
Durarara!!

It's batshit insane. That's really all I can say. Has a damn solid cast, one of the best dubs out there, and it's just a really fun show to watch. I can't say much more than that.

31 Trinity Seven image
Trinity Seven

Yay more ecchi shit haha.

Eitherway, I gotta say I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought it would. I wasn't a big fan of the animation, but the characters are where this show really shines. Arata stands out as a more unique ecchi protagonist because he's so open about his fantasies, on a level equal to Issei, even moreso maybe. And the rest of the harem isn't bad either. I certainly like this show more than I should.

32 Gonna be the Twin-Tails!! image
Gonna be the Twin-Tails!!

This show is stupidly dumb. And that's exactly why I love it so much haha.

I can safely say it's not that good of a show. It really isn't. But god damn, I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it. It's lacking in cast, and I did desire a bit more from the characters especially, but for what it was, it was a fun watch.

33 Log Horizon image
Log Horizon

To be honest, while the RPG genre in video games is one of my favourites, I can't say the same about anime, or at least the ones I've watched/am watching.

Log Horizon is one hell of an exception. It doesn't have any misleading titles, it has an amazing cast (Shiroe being one of the best characters ever), and it has it's nice share of casual and serious moments. The first half of the second season is also amazing as hell.

34 Angel Beats! image
Angel Beats!

Angel Beats was originally supposed to be a 24 episode show, but got reduced to a 12 episode show. The fact that it was still an amazing watch completely stuns me, but I congratulate it anyway. While I can't say Angel Beats is absolutely amazing, it has it's flaws, it is still a good watch. Great characterization, surprisingly so for how many characters they show off, and it's got a good OST as well.

35 Sailor Moon image
Sailor Moon

DIC dub: Absolute guilty pleasure here. It's the one I watch first, and even though it's horrible, it'll still have a place in my heart. It's also the first anime I really dedicated myself to. Plus it's stupidly cheesey.

Viz dub: Makes the show... not bad! With a new cast of voices and keeping things the way they were in the original production (Including Zoicite's gender), Sailor Moon is actually a pretty decent show, and any fan of magical girl animes should watch this if they haven't already, or if they're dub fans and avoided the original. I mean, a main cast of Cris Vee, Cherami Leigh and Kate Higgins is a good sign there.

36 Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT image
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT

Pretty funny show here, all about attempting to make friends when actually they're all friends with each other. They're just too dense to realize it.

That's the downside of the show, is that sometimes the characters can be a bit too dense. Regardless of whether it's a comedy or not, being that dense is a first. Not only that, some characters can be bitchy for the sake of being bitchy and nothing else.

Regardless, good set of characters when they're not all being bitchy, and a catchy as hell first OP. Second season also improved on animation. I also have to hand it to the dub for doing justice to certain scenes (Like Sena reading out her hentai game) to show how when the comedy is good, it's pretty damn good. The second season in general is just much more enjoyable than the first season to be honest.

37 Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. Zoku image
Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. Zoku

Remember what I said about the first season?

"Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I really hope the second season is as good as everyone says, otherwise this was really... eh. Wasn't huge on the animation, not a very strong cast of characters (A lot more quantity over quality), and I really didn't have the motivation to finish the first season until almost 2 months after I started it."

Now the second season...

THIS is something else.

Better animation, a better tone in general, really focuses on characterisation and a lot more quality over quantity (Which is what I vastly prefer) and some decent progression too. It feels like such a real show, it's crazy haha. I wouldn't say it's as amazing as everyone said, but it's still a HUGE improvement over what was a shallow, decent at best comedy. Also unlike the first season which took me 2 months to find motivation for, this one took me about 4 or 5 days when I watched the first episode.

Yeah, all in all, huge improvement. If you finished the first season, watch this even if you didn't like it that much. It's THAT good.

Unfortunately, I can't ignore the first season, and that's why it's not any higher.

38 Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! image
Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!

An incredibly fun show if I say so myself. Chuunibyou has humour, and I feel as if, unlike a lot of other romance anime I've seen, the romantic relationship actually... progresses! I feel as if there is some major development, and for that I applaud what Chuunibyou does. And even then, this show still does its comedy way better anyway, and that's what you watch it for. Plus, a solid set of characters, each with their own unique stand out quality.

Considering this is a show about weebs it's pretty good, haha.

39 Mikagura School Suite image
Mikagura School Suite

Basically this show is stupidity incarnate. But that's why I like it so much. It's very wacky and over the top, although sometimes that does cause the animation to suffer at times. But regardless, it has a fun cast of characters and a catchy OP theme to boot. A very colourful school comedy, but aside from that it doesn't have much else going for it. I have to say, for a show this shallow, it actually has an objective, and I'm surprised they reach it in the end.

40 My Mental Choices are Completely Interfering with my School Romantic Comedy image
My Mental Choices are Completely Interfering with my School Romantic Comedy

It's exactly as the title says. It's a nice, yet minor supernatural twist, that gives it that great sense of humour. While I didn't feel the "romantic" part of the title stand out as much as "school" and "comedy", I'm fine with that because I didn't expect too much romance out of a 10 episode show (That and the romance in this show kinda blows tbh). It is a fun watch, and if you're ever bored, I'd say it's worth it. You could easily watch the whole thing in a day.

41 Infinite Stratos image
Infinite Stratos

Infinite Stratos definitely holds up as a fun mecha show. For ecchi standards, it's actually really good. The harem is one of the better ones I've seen, and, while Ichika is a dense fuck, most of the characters are pretty good, for the most part. While I was disappointed with the ending, and the lack of action scenes I expected, it's stil a fun show, especially for an ecchi anime.

42 Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance image
Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance

A fun show, similar to the concept of Unlimited Fafnir and IS (Girls having some special power, and now some guy becomes the only man to have it), although not really anything special, it was still a fun watch.

43 The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya image
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

A nice school show with a lot of things that set it apart from most regular slice of life shows. With all the supernatural elements involved, it's actually very unique. Definitely a fun watch, but the episode order is quite confusing, mainly because I watched it in airing order, rather than chronologically. You can watch it either way, just expect to be confused if you watched it in airing order.

And then there's the Endless 8 which we just don't speak of. Ever.

44 Sengoku Basara image
Sengoku Basara

Similar to Persona 4's anime, a very solid video game based anime. Lovable character adaptions, and the fights were just effin crazy. Had one of the best anime movies for sure. Just like P4, if you can't get the game (Which makes sense as this one is a lot more rare), this is hands down worth a watch.

45 Persona 4 The Animation image
Persona 4 The Animation

For what it is, it's pretty good for an anime based off of a video game. It handles the social links well, the characterisation is still there, and while it defies the game here and there with the persona system, I didn't mind it because it still managed to show variety in all of the different personas. It's a solid adaption of the game, and if you for some reason can't get it, I'd highly recommend the watch.

Pretty damn good comedy show here. Has a solid set of lovable characters, and while it doesn't have much in terms of development, it's still a fun show to watch. While it's a good comedy, I didn't find myself completely dying of laughter, but that's all up to my sense of humour.

Plus Yuuichi Nakamura. You can never go wrong with this guy.

Sure, it's boring slice of life stuff, but it's humour kept me coming back. Absolutely love everything about the humour, it's right up my alley. Plus Konata being an absolute god of a character, made the show for me. I also felt like there was actually progression in this show, which is certainly different compared to all the other slice of life shows below this. Very cute show, would recommend this show for its humour alone.

Got a bunch of mixed thoughts, but for an incomplete series so far, it's not bad at all. Very solid anime up until the last 3 or so episodes. Great characters, and makes you really question the true "good guys" and all other sorts of morals. Unfortunately the last few episodes had a lot of forced stuff, such as the most forced fight ever, and the most forced and ENTIRELY POINTLESS death in the show. But for what it was, it's a solid, yet dark "anyone can die" show that I'd recommend if you're into that stuff.

During the winter season, this was almost the exact opposite of Absolute Duo in terms of my own enjoyment. Had a really meh start, but actually got pretty good as it progressed. A little disappointed at the sudden/out of place ending, but for what it was I enjoyed it. It's very similar to Infinite Stratos just without the mechs. If you enjoyed that, you'll most likely enjoy this.

Absolute. Comedy. GOLD!

You watch this show for the characters and humour. The plot is non-existent sure, but you don't watch Sergeant Frog for plot. Sure it lacks progression, but once again, that's not what you watch this show for. It's humour, some of the best humour ever.

It's alright. I didn't find it to be anything special, but not anything terrible either. I've heard that stuff gets really good at Stardust Crusaders, so hopefully I'm more impressed there.

For an anime that I used to call my favourite, it sure dropped. Haha...

Eitherway, Kotoura-san has one of the most impactful first episodes I've seen, and while the rest of the show pales in comparison, I still found it to be a fun ride. A reason why I liked it so much is that I binged watched it. When I binge watch shows, I usually like them! Eitherway, the characters are easily the highlight of the show, Kotoura especially.

Gigantic mixed bag with Kill la Kill. On one hand, good action scenes, wacky yet lovable animation, but still a fun watch, at least while watching it.

On the other hand, Ryouko is a very back and fourth character. Some times she's actually pretty cool, other time she's a pathetic poorly written edgy piece of shit. The main villains weren't that good either, Nui is a bitch in every way. However, Satsuki and the Elite 4 are all lovable.

Just know that Ryouko's english VA is also Pac-Man in the Ghostly Adventure games.

Alright, nothing really special, and while lacking in the character department, it did have a nice ending. A few surprising twists too. Not really much else to say haha.
