These best guys and best girl stuff (and the shipping stuff), never understood it.


Dont really focus on things, am I the only one who watches anime just for the sake of enjoying watching anime?

It's harmless. Just more details with minimal effort on why people like the shows that they do.

But for me personally, I don't do any of it, and I can hardly pick a favorite anime of the season or year. The only thing I can really do is pick a top 1 or top 20 of all time. I don't have a myanimelist or any other thing to rate so I just go by memory.

Hard for me too since I dont really focus on one era of anime.

 

 

Like this is all the anime I watched this year and you can tell, stuff from 80s, 90s, 2000s and even modern :p

Yeah I am always 1 season behind, due to my hatred of filler, censorship and cliffhangers. I prefer full seasons, so I often have a huge backlog at once along with highly acclaimed older shows.

Probably not...you can do anything for any reason whatsoever.

That being said, I'm sure you rank the anime you watch on some level in terms of enjoyment right? Some people take a more formal approach, and some rank different parts of the shows they watch. Everyone's got their own jam.

For me personally, characters are always a bigger driving force for enjoying an anime, so my rankings tend to focus on that. My personal stance is that, a lame anime can be redeemed with awesome characters, but supposedly awesome anime can be absolutely ruined with bland characters. Same thing for shipping...though my bias is more obvious there. Gee hee.

Probably the last anime of the year I watched: Scum's Wish or Kuzu no Honkai.

An anime with a ton more inner thoughts than most anime. Lots of mature themes, and yet all the characters go about it childishly. Certainly an interesting psychological show within the minds of young people. The ED "Parallel Line" was almost perfect for each time the show ended and the full ED was great, as is common with the artist. Not everyone would be happy with this show and how it went about, but it is a bit more realist and quite contrary to the common tropes in anime. I do love how everyone is basically scum and have quite a few flaws. Lastly the ED's title is quite significant as I feel like I am on a Parallel Line myself, just hoping to meet my other Line :P.



Ton of gifs and images incoming! Apologies in advance if you're on a data plan, but it's that time of year again!

2018 Anime Summary

Best Guy: Toshinori Yagi "All Might" (My Hero Academia)

Best Guy (runner-up): Tatsumi Kotaro (Zombieland Saga)

Best Girl: Juliet Persia (Boarding School Juliet)

Best Girl (runner-up): Erina Nakiri (Shokugeki no Souma - Season 3 Hokkaido Arc)

Best Villain: Kenny Ackerman - Attack on Titan Season 3

Best Ship: Romio x Juliet (Boarding School Juliet)

Best Ship (runner-up): Souma x Erina (Shokugeki no Souma)

Best Bout: All Might vs. All for One (My Hero Academia)

Best Comedy: Yuru Camp

AOTY: Boarding School Juliet

AOTY (runner-up): Tada-kun Never Falls in Love!

Overall Thoughts: Really good year overall. Boarding School Juliet was a late game surprise, but really hit every right note with me, which is why I gave it so many gifs. Lots of other great surprises as well, including Grand Blue Dreaming, Yuru Camp, and Cells at Work, and the usual long-running shounen stuff was also largely great. The My Hero Academia climax was one of the best anime moments I've seen in a long time...holy cow was that well animated. 

Don't want to ramble after slowing everyone's computer down...but I just want to say thanks to everyone who contributes in this thread. I know I'm not the most active user here anymore, and this is a hard thread to keep alive in a community like this anyway, but it's thanks to the few active people here that this thread is still around. Let's all hope for a great 2019. Cheers!

Up to date on Jojo and man I love this season. I love the whole squad of main characters.



I think its safe to say that I wont be finishing any more anime in the year of 2018.

 

So as far as 2018 is, the year has been a blast for me when it came to anime watching.

 

Compared to 2017 (which I only finished 22 types of anime entries) I finished about 66 in 2018.
