Happy Anime New Year! (Top Anime I Watched This Year)

Hey everyone! It's the end of the year, which means out with 2017 and in with 2018. Of course, this means a new year filled with new things, which also includes new anime! I usually do a New Year's Resolution-focused post, but I thought I'd switch things up this time around. Instead, I'd like to share a very short post that showcases the anime I watched in 2017; the one's I enjoyed the most.

As a disclaimer, the following anime weren't necessarily ones that aired this year, but were ones I decided to watch this year. I'm posting them here, because I want to recommend them to you all!

What I liked: Nice action sequences, good characters and development. First season started off with a bang, and the second followed through quite well. Emotional moments were present throughout the entire season.

What could be better: Plot-twists came out of nowhere and didn't really make sense, poor use of characters outside of the main cast, convoluted story.

What I liked: Great characters, and a lot of funny moments. The premise of story being around manga creation was also a nice touch!

What could be better: More content would be wonderful as the story still didn't feel complete towards the end.

What I liked: Interesting characters like the rest, relatable story and content. I liked the fact that it delved into MMO gaming and viewed the gamers in a positive light. A harem-anime done pretty well.

What could be better: Again, more content would benefit this anime.

Last but not least, the New Year's Resolution! My resolution for 2018 is to focus on myself. I think improving myself and understanding my likes, dislikes, and strengths will help me become a better individual in 2018.

This is where 2017 has led me, and I feel like if I continue down this path I can be 100% the person I am right now! I also hope this will allow me to be of more help to others as well!

As always, thank you for reading and...Happy New Year!


  1. Cool list. Which is one is most romantic here?

  2. Hi, I like Seraph of the End, the actions were never short at all, it wasn't cheaply made. Though, I seriously craving for more and I think the season ended in such a cliffhanger and definitely looking forward and wishing for a 3rd season. Nonetheless, it's a good ride of vampiric thrill, some mild shounen-ai, lots of action, and some dosage of oxymoron and sarcasm.

Black History Month with Anime

Today is the last day of February, one of the shortest months of the year, and one that is filled with two holidays. Since I've already addressed Valentine's Day, I thought I'd take the time to talk a little bit about Black History Month. As you may or may not know, Black History Month is a holiday that is present in North America. It's a way to remember, celebrate, and appreciate the history of African-Americans. Instead of doing the normal way of celebrating, I thought I'd combine anime with this holiday as a way to bring awareness, and to share a few of my thoughts as well. I've done a post on diversity in anime  before, and discussed a few of my thoughts on race and physical differences when it comes to characters. Since anime doesn't necessarily list off the races of their characters, it's a little hard to celebrate a certain ethnic group using anime. Although others have found ways to do that, one featuring African-American themed cosplay , I

Learning Japanese Using Anime! Words of Advice

Learning Japanese isn't really an easy feat. The language has a lot of vocab, there's three forms of writing, and not to mention grammar. So while being an otaku, it's easy to turn to anime as a form of education. Since we watch it all the time, why not pick up a few things from it? However, there's a few things you need to watch out for. Watch Out for "Personalized" Forms of Speaking In the Japanese language, there are many ways to address yourself and others. The common word for talking about ourselves is Watashi. However, there are different ways to do this. Another word commonly heard in anime is Boku. We can use this word when we are male speakers. If we are female speakers, we would use the word atashi. While this isn't limited to these set gender roles, saying boku as a female would give a tomboyish image; atashi as a male would seem feminine. We've also experienced other types of this speech. If you're familiar with Narut
