Top Rated Anime
My Anime Recommendation List.
Hunter x Hunter (2011)
HxH is a great anime that subverts the shōnen formula. The main character Gon feels like a deconstruction of a shōnen protagonist, and all the characters (even side ones) all feel alive.
Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S
The perfectly crafted sisters' arcs pulled on my heartstrings. You can complain about the slow pacing, but I was satisfied with the payoff. Unfortunately, the anime falls off at the last filler arc but didn't ruin my experience.
Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
Takes your expectations and flips them on their head. Challenges the concept of doing what's right for you vs. everyone.
One Punch Man
One punch man taught me that with great power comes great boredom. It is a hilarious parody that unexpectedly played with some complex ideas.
JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken Part 4: Diamond wa Kudakenai
Refined everything that made JoJo great. The characters and fights were extraordinary. Some episodes didn't have plot importance, but it was great to see characters act like regular people.
Shingeki no Kyojin
It gave the impression of a seinen converted to a shōnen. The soundtrack is amazing with a decent plot with tons of foreshadowing.
