I have to really think about most of these but that GIF reminded me that Anzu is absolutely precious and definitely worthy of being best girl this year.

It's probably obvious from my avatar but Wotakoi is my Anime of the Year. It's not quite as polished as something like Scum's Wish (which was my AOTY for 2017 btw) but the fact that the main characters are all working adults in their late 20's makes everything about the show feel a lot more relatable compared to most other romance and slice of life anime where the main cast are all teenagers or college students.

Cells at Work is a close second, the creative brilliance that went into show would thrill anybody with a decent knowledge of biology.

@SootKatt put me onto the Banana Fish anime earlier this year, shit was good whew.png 

 

I liked it a lot more than I though I would (especially since it's shounen-ai-ish) but it was a nice story about a dmamaged and troubled soul finally finding  someone that help him cope with his demons, with a decent overarching mafia/government conspiracy and a street life setting.

Don't have a 'list' per say but here is some of the stuff I liked. . .and didn't-

Stuff I liked-

Killing Bites(Seinen, very mature. Will never be on Toonami kind of mature)

Hero Academia(Shounen) - Nice to have a flawed shounen main character that doesn't always win a fight through 'pure determination'.

Godzilla: Battle City(Animated Movies) - Go to your favorite sites to watch anime and watch the two Godzilla movies NOW! This is Godzilla in his 'purest form!'

FLCL Alternative - The got the mix of 'Random Chaos' and 'Coming of Age' just right in this one.

Attack on Titan.

Stuff I didn't like-

Pop Team Epic. . .no. . .just. . .no.

Boruto - Just head over to the Naruto to read my posts and why I refuse to 'listen' to what I can read so I don't get the feeling my ears are bleeding.

FLCL Progressive - Weakest of the trilogy.

 

Series that surprised me-

Dragonball Super - Actually kind of liked it. Although word of warning - Goku is kind of annoying in this incarnation. He comes off as an immature modern shounen lead male that prevalent in way too many modern shounen(given who the publisher is, no surprise there).

:aww: I loved Laid Back Camp, it didn't have much in the way of plot or character writing but it was so scenic and had such a relaxing atmosphere episode plus I've always been a fan of camping so it was a perfect series for me. ( @Candles and I both took our families camping together in November it was great)

I think anime / manga is the only medium where pairing like this could exist and nobody bats an eye :lolxg:

Anyway I don't know if any of you follow Mother's Basement but he did a video arguing that 2018 was the best year ever for anime. I'm not sure if I agree yet but he makes some good points. What do you guys think?

Exactly. The atmosphere. I couldn't care less about any sort of plot, I admit. 

I like camping too, but most of the time, when I do it, it's for a festival, so it's supremely noisy!

I want more of the sort of camping they had ^^

I see where he's coming from but even so, I think what'll determine that is how many things that comes out that'll actually be remembered for a long time

I feel like 2019 is going to be way better than last year
