Shiki was my first anime! It means so much to me. Like Tokyo Ghoul (but better imho), it has no clearly defined "good" and "evil". The viewer must stuggle to pick his/her own side. It starts off a little slow, but the horror kicks in eventually; trust me, it will snowball into a big bloody masterpiece. The art is odd, but I <3 it. The soundtrack was unique as well, but I absolutely adored it :) *pssst* Tohru is miiiine. You can't have him O.O
I'm convinced that this is the best shounen you can get your hands on. I loved the antagonists just as much as the gang of AMAZING protagonists (I love Gon and Killua like children). The arcs were masterpieces; I enjoyed them all (with the highlight being the Chimera arc). It has highs and lows, jokes and instensity, good & bad sides to characters. I just can't put into words all the marvelous things this anime has to offer, but all I will say is that I knew that HxH was going to be one of my favorites from the very first episode <3
PERFECTION. I doubt I will ever meet a soul who dislikes S;G, and I don't want to. If you hate S;G, I WOULD SPRAY YOU WITH HOLY WATER IF I GOT THE CHANCE. I fell in love with the characters (OTP OTP OTP) and the plot is the best I've seen to date. It may not seem like "favorite anime" material for the first half of the series, but shit gets real later. I don't want to spoil anything, but I promise that this anime is worth your time! El. Psy. Congroo.
SUPERB SOUNDTRACK (there's this one song that makes me cry every time, it's my kryptonite). WONDERFUL ANIMATION. GOOD PLOT. GOD, I LOVE TWELVE. MY FEELS CAN'T HANDLE EXPLAINING MY LOVE FOR ZNK. I'M OUT.
This rom-com is something special. I can definitely say that the characters are AWESOME (my fav was Mikoshiba), and the comedy aspect was golden! FYI, I personally feel like Gekkan is more for experienced anime-fans, otherwise some of the jokes might not make sense as much, but I could be wrong. SECOND SEASON WHERE YOU AT?
Is it possible to love almost every character in an anime? In this case, the answer is YES. Karneval has superb character design (even with minor characters) and my favorite art style of all time (including vivid colors!). I loved all the characters, but I want a hug from Yogi the most ^__^ (it has bad ratings because the plot took the backseat, lawls)
I am perfectly aware that it's not a 5-star anime in terms of quality, but I rate for personal enjoyment, and since it was a lot of fun for me 5 STAR WOOO
Are you an emotional masochist? Cool, here you go. Fall into the flaming void of despair with me.
As I'm writing this, Cross-country at my old school is in season, probably getting close to the first meet of the year... and I miss it so damn much, but this show is so realistic with their teams that it helps me relive those memories in a good way. It hurts sometimes, but the comedy is some of the best I've seen, so that really does help :)
Plus, you know a show is good when you instrinctively call the characters your babies aloud about 10 times each episode.
Crying character? "My babeh TnT"
Characters being lovable dorks? "Awww, haha my babies ^w^"
Success of characters? "AHHHHH MY BABIES! YESHHH"
They are mine, you can't have them.
You know it's a favorite when you stay up til 5am to watch the final episode the second it comes out. Can't wait for season 2!
Either you've watched it or you're putting it off. DON'T put it off. People love it for a reason ;D
(includes second season)
This was one of those where I thought I'd give it a solid 4/5 and move on but damnnnnn it grew on me! The characters were very well done, and the romance (taboo youkai/human relationship) was spot on! Also, it was surprisingly realistic, or as much as it could be with a supernatural situation like this. The comedy was friggin awesome by the end (Mizuki is hilarious), and, speaking of the end, my fangirling reached 88% capacity, so I can't help but include this flawless romcom on my favorites!
This is a masterpiece. I never thought a movie would make it on here, but I'd be a friggin' lier if I didn't put this on my top anime list, because this was so well executed and heart gripping that I can't even count on one hand how many times I cried with it... or how many times I'd be willing to rewatch it. Just see for yourself.
Durarara has the strongest array of interesting, original characters that I've ever seen! The interactions between all of them just flippin' makes the show all by itself, but add in an engaging plot that always keeps me thinking (seriously, pay attention or drown)? And craaaazy awesome fights on top of that (Shizuo. HOLY sh*t)? COUNT. ME. IN.
This is one of the most hilarious anime ever. Ever ever. The characters are lovable and oh so funny, and the voice acting for the dub was actually very well-done. Anyways, this is a quality comedy (and what I consider the first true example of the genre that I ever watched); I recommend it to absolutely everyone :)
Majority of Haters: "It's too edgy and overrated..."
Edgy smedg-y, I like what I like. Bite me O.O
This is one of the darkest (and probably the goriest) anime I've seen so far, but it's just beautiful in my eyes. This is a great example of a good "choose your side" anime. Are the ghouls the bad guys? Are the humans going too far? That's up to you. Also, I love the animation (especially the battle scenes). It's intense, and not for the faint of heart ;)
(includes season 2)
This anime is a lovely escape into a world of adventure (and bouncy boobs, lol). This anime didn't make me want to cry or rethink my life; it just left me smiling in awe through every episode. If I could choose any anime world to live in, I'd pick this one in a heartbeat. The dungeon/level-up environment of this was a first for me, and I loved it. The animation makes me smile just thinking about it... Danmachi is just such a treat!
Everything about this is amazing. I love the characters, dramatic romance, art style, and voice actors, and the music makes me want to smile every time ^___^ I often paused in the middle of episodes, so I could madly fangirl about the awesomeness of it all (basically I slump out of my bed, fan myself, spasm, and squeak while re-iterating the scenes with hand gestures until I run out of energy... then repeat the process later on)
It's very rare for me to get attached to (pretty much) plotless slice of life anime, but this was perfect for me! It satisfied my unhealthy obsession with rabbits and just made me relax and enjoy the adorable characters (Chino! Let me love you!) and lovely art style. Just what I needed at the time x3
