I started watching anime after I discover that many of my favorite Directors & Movies have been inspired by anime or manga. I decided to give it a try and I was hooked on the creativity of the stories. So, I embark on a journey to discover the Best Anime from all Time. I keep an open mind for any anime that has a good story to tell.

At some point, I decided to start watching in release chronological order to give more time for sequels to be created and be able to watch the full story without waiting. I went as far back to the 1960s, I've been watching every anime that ranks higher than 3.5 on this site for the chosen year, even for the genres that I"m not fond of (slice-of-life, episodic comedies, romance, moe, ecchi & harem), it helps me be more open-minded and I have found some that I really like, but dropped a lot that annoyed me too. Below 3.5 rankings I only watch the ones that I really think I will like (sci-fi, dark themes, action, thrillers, fantasy). Some OVAs & Shorts do not rank high due to lack of popularity and I have discovered some real gems at the bottom of the pile.

I've been collecting the Best Animes I have watched for each year on my lists:

1960s to 1970s • 1980s • 1990 to 1996 • 1997 to 1999

200020012002 • 2003200420052006200720082009


And currently going through 2016 • 2017 • 20182019 • 2020 (work in progress)

I can see where you might coming from for the ascendance of a bookworm but for when I watched it I took it at face value as an ieskai that’s me in a ieskai nutshell

A lot has been happening due to the virus like it's affecting me with school. Everything is going online now. Other than that i'm just wrapping up finals and getting new ideas for video edits. Also congrats on catching up with everything. I have yet to catch up on series I've been meaning to watch. One day though lol XD. I am impatiently waiting for the next attack on titan manga chapter though.

Thank you I hadn't really thought about all of that mealy Dots "5" & "9", for Dot 5 it's in passing but they said something about humens for the outside being exiled so that might have something to do with it. Also one I thought about for plot holes is "in breeding", with only what was six sets of genes  for G1 3 for G2 and its goes from there. and on adiffrent note, holy S*it you've watched anime for awhlie my god. well done anyway 

thank you for the repy, and keep up what your doing
