Time to end these posts looking back on the year on a high note. A lot have anime have aired. A lot anime this year that I found not really too exciting. This year has been rather boring in my opinion, however there are still a lot of good moments out there for what happened this year. Not just in anime, but older series as well I watched. A lot has happened this year. Although I will be only talking about the airing anime that happened this year here is to all the anime seen this year and to all the ones that will be airing next year that will be good.

These are my Personal Favorites

 

Death Parade

That opening, just wow, I still love it so much. I mean once I mention Death Parade I naturally think of it, and had to stop writing just to play it while I write this part. But the show was rather interesting. It kept up that sense of how really people are behind their masks. Sometimes they really are jerks, while other times they are good people. It was very interesting just to see how each episode played out since clearly not everything was known. There was also room for there to be more, since it felt like there could be. Personally I hope there is not since it ended wonderfully, and is also the highest score of any review. Although I will admit now that could be partially due to bias. Still is a very great show and deserves a look at.

Monster Musume

I mean, did you really think I would not talk about this show? I really enjoy the manga, and I think the anime did a wonderful job with it. I agree with the choices that were made. I still want to rewatch it again just because why not. I have reread the manga so many times while waiting for another volume to come out. So, I am just glad the anime only fueled my enjoyment for the series more instead of ruin it like other adaptations. Now since I did a weekly review of this and Jitsu wa Watashi wa, the second series I reviewed will not be on here, since they really could have done better, they really stopped before it gets to the more humorous parts of the series. I think Jitsu wa Watashi wa does play a role in why I enjoyed Monster Musume was because I was reviewing both and I really enjoy the manga for both, which allowed me to think about them independently and think about the choices that were made for the anime from what they had in the manga.

One Punch Man

I think this one could have been obvious. This anime saved me from a boring year of anime. I will admit I only watched episode one and two, stopped, and then picked up again later since this was after I decided to marathon it in one sitting. Then I stopped again to do exactly that and watched episode 4 to 12 in a day. It was glorious and worth the wait.  I am so glad there are like 6 OVAs going to be out for it. I really hope there is another season, but it will have to wait a bit for the manga to finish the next arc, which is apparently very long. Still the humor and action was very enjoyable and throw in the great art made it even more so. I really want to get the manga because I love owning physical copies and caught up with the redrawn version of the manga only two hours after finishing the anime. It was just amazing, easily one, if not, then my favorite series of the year.
