Better late than never? Here are my favourite anime picks of 2015
I can’t be bothered to write a proper description or review for these shows.
also to make things interesting, no sequels (second seasons) allowed.
#10 – Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata // Comedy // 13 Eps // 冴えない彼女の育てかた
Enjoyable character driven comedy about making a video game together, has some pretty fun tongue in cheek segments and meta remarks.
#9 – Etotama // Action Comedy // 12 Eps // えとたま
Daft and often nonsensical action comedy, again with the meta-humour. Mixes CGI action with dumb catgirl 2d for an enjoyable but not particularly award winning 12 episodes.
#8 – Assassination classroom // Action // 22 Eps // Ansatsu Kyoushitsu
Big ol tentacle octopus thing but he doesn’t actually rape anyone because he’s a cool dude. It’s like a retelling of GTO (great teacher onizuka, fuckin classic, go watch it) except the teacher is now a neon yellow octopus and all of the children and trying to murder him.
#7 – Yamada kun and the 7 witches // Harem Comedy // 12 Eps // Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo
All guys have had the ‘what If I could switch bodies with a girl’ thought before right? Well this is that in anime form, plus a bunch of other girls who have interesting powers.
#6 – Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? (Danmachi) // Adventure // 13 Eps // Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatte Iru Darouka
Trapped in a video game MMORPG but without actually being trapped in a video game MMORPG? Despite the title, danmachi is actually pretty light on the harem stuff, choosing to primarily focus on adventurer bell and huge chested ribbon tits hestia.
#5 – Monster Musume // Harem Comedy // 12 Eps
Don’t look at me like that.
#4 – Ore Monogatari // Rom-com // 24 Eps // My love story
It feels kind of refreshing to actually see the goofy guy get the girl, Ore monogatari gets the confession out of the way quickly and instead goes for a mixture of daft comedy and drama.
#3 – Shokugeki no Souma // Superpower cooking? // 24 Eps
12 minutes talk -> 2 minutes cooking -> 6 minutes of elaborate orgasm faces and describing of food textures
#2 – Prison School // Comedy // 12 Eps
This is the funniest comedy of the year. All of the characters are fantastic. Sure it’s oversexualized but just close the door and pretend you’re watching real titties instead of anime ones instead.
#1 – One Punch Man // Action // 12 Eps
50% ridiculous over the top action scenes, and then the other 50% is this, one punch man is well worth your time, it’s like the Bayonetta of the anime world.
Shows good enough to get remembered but not good enough to make top 10: Kishi Cavalry, Shomin Sample, Utawaremono, Ani tore EX, Yurikuma Arashi, Kancolle, Death Parade, Koufuku Graffiti, Punch Line, Hibike Euphonium, Plastic Memories, Shimoneta, Himouto Umaru-Chan, Saenai Heroine no sodatekata
