A solid, definitive ending to a solid series that sets the bar for what harem romance anime can be.
ODDTAXI: In the Woods
A reframing/retelling of the main series that is slightly more condensed, and with a tiny amount of new content/story. Not suitable to watch "instead of" the main series, but to be done after.
An absolutely amazing mystery, crime, drama ride that simultaneously feels very comfortable and very dangerous.
Fruits Basket (2019) – 1st Season
A more intentional, palatable remake than the original. Characters get a bit more depth and the story as a whole is treated with a bit more respect.
A refreshingly mature high school romcom with some solid substance and intricate characters.
Wonder Egg Priority
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.
A magical and soul-stirring piece with beauty musically, emotionally, and artistically.
Somali and the Forest Spirit
A beautiful, heart wrenching and heartwarming adventure in a gorgeous fantasy world. With rich world building, heavy topic exploration, and my kryptonite: the "Learn to be Human" trope. Get tissues.
Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.01 Thrice Upon a Time
Finally a satisfying, well-balanced, cathartic finale to all Evangelion.
A snack show good for scratching a Yuri itch. Despite a ridiculous hentai-flavored premise, there is little skin-service but excellent spice. Refreshingly frank and honest about sexuality for an anime.
