21. Skeleton Knight in Another WorldD-
Started out garbage but it was a headfake. Ended up just being plain boring.

20. Healer GirlD+
Great first episode… Loved the musical. But the actual story was boring and kind of pointless.

19. The Dawn of the WitchD+
I’m not even sure what they were going for here.

18. Aharen-san wa HakarenaiC-
Cute! But could have done without the romance, and ended up feeling repetitive.

17. Shikimori’s Not Just a CutieC
Very well-produced, but not much substance to it.

16. I’m Quitting HeroingC+
Great first half, marred by trying to get serious in the second half.

15. The Greatest Demon Lord is Reborn as a Typical NobodyC+
Dumb but I enjoyed it. Loved their ridiculous costumes and how they’re all dumbasses.

14. A Couple of Cuckoos — Ongoing
Needs more drama, I enjoyed the manga much more. Too slow, doesn’t feel too crazy.

13. Ascendance of a Bookworm S3B-
Same as usual!

12. The Executioner and Her Way of LifeB-
Great first episode which the rest never quite lived up to.

11. Date A Live IV — Ongoing
Kurumi returned but it took until the end of the season. Next season should rule.

10. Summer Time Rendering — Ongoing
Feels like a throwback to ten years ago but I’m enjoying it.

9. Love After World DominationB
Really cute.

8. Deaimon: Recipe for HappinessB
So sweet. Usually I don’t like these kinds of shows but this one had no hints at incest, some drama, and a male lead who isn’t totally replaceable.

7. Boruto — Ongoing
Great arc on war.

6. Trapped in a Dating Sim: The World of Otome Games is Tough for MobsB+
I loved this show. Main character has a great personality.

5. The Demon Girl Next Door S2B+
Can’t believe I missed this. Seems at first glance like I wouldn’t enjoy it, but it actually does have a plot and is the best in its class regardless.

4. Birdie Wing Golf Girls’ Story — Ongoing
The day has come, when I have enjoyed an anime about golf…

3. Ya Boy Kongming!A-

2. SPY x FAMILY — Ongoing
So much fun. Can’t wait for the rest.

1. Kaguya-sama: Love is War -Ultra Romantic– — A-
The creators just outdid themselves with this, over and over again. Amazing adaptation.
