2016 saw a lot of remakes, sequels, adaptations, and memes. We saw some goods and some… admittedly, really bads. But finally, we’ve reached the end of it all, so as usual, we’re back for another annual wrap-up of the year’s best anime!
If your favourite didn’t make the cut, leave us a comment below; maybe we’re missing out on a gem!
If you’ve been around the anime scene long enough, you’ll know that Fall and Winter have the best releases. And it makes perfect sense. The school year is finally over, students are going on break, and everyone has more time to watch more anime!
However, just because more series are being released doesn’t mean that all of them are good. Here’s a list of highlights from Fall 2016. (Everything else you can just ignore, lol.)
Bittersweet anime has and always will be one of my most favourite kind of anime to watch. It makes you cry, it makes you emotional, it just stabs you right in the kokoro. I have seen a lot, and I mean, A LOT of not only anime but also dramas/movies where my heart and my mind feels conflicted about all the mushed up complicated feelings.
So before I get all touchy-feely and ramble on and on, here are 7 bittersweet anime SERIES for the soul.
The main character Suzukaze Aoba graduates from high school and joins a game company. The person who made the game that Aoba loved as a grade-schooler just happens to be Aoba’s senior at the company. The story follows girls who work and aspire at the Eaglejump company. (Source: ANN)
Konnichiwa minna! In this review, I will be comparing two series that ended at the same time, B Project and Tsukiuta.
Tsukiuta the Animation features 12 idols of two rivaling/sibling groups that are under the same company, the Tsukino Production. Both groups live under the same dorm and each episode features a different idol(s) as the main character.
B Project: Kodou no Ambitious, features Sumisora Tsubasa, a new hire in the A&R department of the major recording company Gandala Music. In the anime, the viewers can get a glimpse of how she manages the 3 idol groups being assigned to her, namely: THRIVE, Moons and Kitakore.
Hated by everyone around him, Sei Handa goes about his high school life regarded as an outcast—or at least that’s what he believes. In reality, Sei is the most popular student on campus, revered by all for his incomparable calligraphy skills, good looks, and cool personality. However, due an endless series of misunderstandings, Handa perceives the worship he receives from his legions of fans as bullying, leading the school’s idol to shut himself off from the rest of his classmates.
But distancing himself from his peers doesn’t deter them from adoring him; in fact, his attempts at drawing attention away from himself often end up unintentionally converting even the most skeptical of students into believers. Fashion models, shut-in delinquents, obsessive fangirls, and more—none can stand against the brilliance that is Sei Handa. (Written by MAL Rewrite; Source: MyAnimeList)
