Anime & Manga
My semi-annual Top 10 Anime picks.
Part 1: Winter/Spring
Part 2: Summer/Fall.
Only anime that aired its first animation or season are on this list which means you’re not going to see One Piece, Sword Art Online, and other series that have multiple seasons or are ongoing on my articles.
My bias leans towards production companies such as Ufotable, Noitamina, Studio Bones, MADHOUSE, A-1 Pictures, Sunrise and others. Genres I like are action, comedy, psychological, supernatural, and adventure. Actually, I like most genres and sub-genres as long as it hits some or all of the following points: the story is compelling, the animation is appealing, there is character development, and the story is well-executed or entertaining.
