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 by the creativity of the stories. So, I embarked on a journey to discover the Best Animes of 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 order to give more time for sequels to be created (as I hate cliffhangers) and be able to watch the full story on a binge. I went as far back to the 1960s, and I've been checking out every anime that ranks higher than 3.7 on this site for each year while collecting the best on my lists, even for the genres that I'm NOT fond of (slice-of-life, dumb comedies, romance, moe, ecchi & harem), as it helps me be more open-minded. My Lists favors my favorite genres, sci-fi, dark stories, seinen, adventure, fantasy, isekai, action, psychological, thrillers, horror, mystery, survival, martial arts, etc; so if you have a similar taste you'll find them really useful.

Yeah the later arcs of TPN got kinda weird after the Goldy Pond arc, but it was still better than what the show did. I wish they finished it even if the manga ending wasn't perfect.

Yeah I originally made The Promised Neverland Watching guide as a joke, but still think it would be useful to stop people from wasting their time with season two. I would love a remake or a Goldy Pond movie. I was very disappointed that I never got to see that arc animated.

Also, I don't think I'll be able to become a custom list creator for a while. I heard back from them on becoming one. 

sorthis told me this:
"In case you're talking about an old system we had to allow certain people to mark 'everyone' without asking here, that's on hold temporarily. We're reworking the custom list system and at that time we would have the monitoring needed to keep allowing that sort of system. When that is eventually available we'll update the community."

I don't usually have trouble getting a list accepted,so it's not a big problem anyway. I'll try again once they update it. Next time I make a watching guide, I'll make sure that it is published before submitting it to you.

Hi! Sorry, I misunderstood earlier. I requested to become a featured list author. AnnaSartin commented on my Promised Neverland list earlier saying that there wasn't much point in making a guide with only two seasons.

Thank you so much for your advice! The Jojo's Bizarre Adventure list was submitted earlier, so it is visible to everyone. I'm not sure if The Promised Neverland will be accepted because it only has three things on it but I'll give it a try. I'll tell them you included it in your watching guide list if that's okay.

I did hear about the Solo Leveling anime annoucement recently. I'm not really into webtoons but I may give the anime a watch depending.
