Between the start of July 2021 and the end of June 2022, I watched 36 anime series/movies. Here are my top 10 from those, as well as some honorable mentions.
A beautiful, raw, rattling ride focusing on human trauma in a non-pandering way. For about 70% of the way, then has a disappointing finish.
An excellently executed delight with fantastic characters, warm fuzzies, and a fascinating dive into the cosplay hobby.
A super short vignette series of interactions waiting at the Railroad crossing. Nothing special, but it beats doom-scrolling reddit/twitter for an hour at least.
A surprisingly funny, smart, and effective "edutainment" piece to get you excited about hitting the gym.
Gunning for that early 2000's Cartoon Network feel, PSG is a stark and unusually crass change of pace from conventional anime. I highly recommend the English dub.
A fantastic prequel with a slightly more serious tone than the original series, and fantastic acting and animation.
