12 Days of Anime: Day 12 The Best of the Year

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.

12 Days of Anime: Day 5 Not the Top 5 Openings

This is not the post that is my Top Five Favorite Opening Themes as voted by the community for Top Fives return, which is this Friday. This one is dedicated to one opening theme per season from this year. So, before I begin, happy holidays and have a nice day.

Winter Season: Death Parade

I love this song. One of the best parts to the show. I love the opening themes and if a show has a bad one I do find it hard to watch it. This is mostly because I do not feel like skipping ahead at the start. The ending theme is a different story, which I skip. Death Parade has that nice guitar that is just so nice to hear.

Spring Season: DanMachi

This one was difficult there were so many that I really liked from this season. It was really between Rinne and DanMachi. Both were very enjoyable. At first with this it sounds like it will start off soft, but by the end it just picks up into something really enjoyable and fitting for the show.

Summer Season: Monster Musume

Another difficult one between this and Jitsu wa Watashi wa, both series I really like, both manga series I really like, and I am glad I did both for weekly reviews. It was really enjoyable. One thing that I like about this one is there are seven versions out. One for each of the girls, excluding Lala, and the one used for the series which is all together. It was really enjoyable seeing it for the first time.

Fall Season: One-Punch Man

This opening reminds me of a mixture of two of my favorite bands ACDC and Led Zepplin. Somewhere towards the end it just reminds me of them. The song is just amazing from start to finish. Although I only saw 3 episodes of One-Punch Man and plan on marathoning it comes Sunday. I have heard it so many times to the point where it is not funny.


So, yeah. What are your favorite opening themes from this year? Another day where I am curious.

Also I do not own any of the music used. All Youtube clips where uploaded by there respective owners.


As always I hope you enjoyed.

As I mentioned feedback on what you would like to see for these series of posts would be appreciated. It will take a few posts before a set form and it might change depending on the series as well too. The same goes for any suggestion for anything you would like to see here.

12 Days of Anime: Day 1 Bird People

So, I got this idea last year and I was like, I want to do this. So here I am doing this. Only problem is I have no idea if there are a set thing for each day. I do not think so. So, what I am going to do is for each day has a different theme. Since why not. Each day will relate to a show I watched in the past year. It does not have to be an airing show. So, onto Day One!

30 Day Manga Challenge Day 29

Day 29: A manga you read that was just plain weird

musume 8 2            Next to last day and in all honesty I am a little disappointed when looking at this day. I mean a lot of them are weird and it really depends what you are looking for exactly. So, yeah, this one is a “I am going to change since it is pointless” day. The answer would be Monster Musume by the way if I decided to go with this theme.
