A look back at 2018’s anime; How many did you watch?

Now, even though I haven’t posted much… in the last… however many years(2 and a halfish), I’ve still very much been keeping up with the anime airing each season each year. Probably because of that I’ve not written anything. But I’d like to try and change that. Juggling work, what I watch, play and sometimes read is always difficult though. BUT!!! Let’s give it a whirl!

I’ll confess that my taste in anime can sometimes be questionable. But I feel you need some trash in your life to balance out the Oscar/award-worthy titles. That said, I don’t stoop as low as “In Another World with my Smartphone” and “The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar”… but I do enjoy more than the odd isekai, which my best boy has pretty much tapped out on as he feels the market is oversaturated and they all have dumb titles. Which is probably true for about half of anime these days anyway.

So the list of shows I watched last year was pretty long(65 long as it turns out). But I’d like to think it’s no longer than the past few years ^_^;. I know alot of people are hailing 2018 as the best year for anime in a long time, but I’d need to go back and compare.

Is this too many? Did you watch too many? More or less than this? I’d like to think this is a 60/40 split of actual good shows to sub-par trash. That said, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure ;D


Go to Crunchyroll to watch this adorable heart-warming show ❤

Either way. Back to Fate Grand Order for now! (Yes, I’ve gone down the Fate hole. It happened at the beginning of 2018. All because I told the original anime had a plot twist, and I like plot twists. Little did I realise the bigger plot twist would come in UBW…)
