25. I Got a Cheat Skill in Another World and Became Unrivaled in the Real World, TooF
Most cringe anime I’ve ever watched.

WTF even was this nonsense.

22. The Aristocrat’s Otherworldly Adventure: Serving Gods Who Go Too FarF

21. A Galaxy Next DoorD-
I loved the manga. This adaptation sucked so hard.

20. Summoned to Another World for a Second TimeD
Just kind of meh.

19. The Legendary Hero is DeadD
Fun for Classy. Objectively speaking, not that great.

18. Dead Mount Death Play — Ongoing
Way too chuunibyou but not in a self-aware way…

17. The Dangers in my Heart — Ongoing
It’s really well made but I struggled to get into it. Probably just too old.

16. Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear PunchC-
This has grown on me since the first season. Pretty fun.

15. My One-Hit Kill SisterC
You all know I love the crazies…

14. Mashle: Magic and Muscles — Ongoing
Has one joke but when it works it works.

13. Insomniacs After SchoolB-
Sweet and cute.

12. My Love Story with Yamda-kun at Lv999B-
Pretty good love story! With gaming elements.

11. Konosuba An Explosion on this Wonderful WorldB
More Megumin!!! Honestly not as good as the original though.

10. Heavenly DelusionB
Really beautiful. Probably would have appreciated this more if I hadn’t spoiled myself with the manga.

9. Dr. Stone New World — Ongoing
Still just a lot of fun in a ridiculous way.

8. Sacrifical Princess and the King of Beasts — Ongoing
On paper I feel like I shouldn’t enjoy this at all, but it’s so good.

7. Hell’s Paradise — Ongoing
It’s like a shounen battle show but without 9 / 10 of the stuff I can’t stand.

6. Yuri Is My Job!  — B+
Still the most WTF premise to me. Really worked though.

5. Birdie Wing S2B+
Almost tricked me into liking golf.

4. Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury S2A-
Slightly let down by the ending, but it was still amazing.

3. Kamikatsu: Working for God in a Godless WorldA-
Absolutely deranged. But maybe no one but me can appreciate it.

2. Vinland Saga S2A
How did this take a setup so different from the first season and turn it into something so amazing.

1. Oshi no Ko — Ongoing

There were so many good shows this season. I watched way too much anime. The top four were amazing, it was difficult to even rank them to be honest. And any of the top ten or so might have been anime of the season in another season. Looking forward to taking a bit of a break next season since it doesn’t seem as strong.
