Merry Christmas! — Eleven Days of Advent and One Day of Christmas #12

First, let me list the runner-ups:

  • Overlord: when the beast from the forest appears.
  • Oregairu: every single glorious moment.
  • Shirobako: every single glorious moment.
  • Sidonia: every single glorious moment.
  • Chaos Dragon: when that girl comes back to life just so the kid can kill her again and suffer more.
  • Rokka no Yuusha: every other episode.

Honestly, some of these series had better moments than some of the ones I picked, but they had so many great moments I couldn’t pick just one. Today’s moment comes from another series with too many amazing moments to pick just one. But this series I couldn’t let pass, so I picked one anyways.

The series I speak of is, of course, Cross Ange. Like anyone imagined I would forget one of the best anime of the year. I’m going to pick the end of Nunally’s story arc.

Try On — Eleven Days of Advent and One Day of Christmas #9

The best moment of the show was in episode 22, where the main characters’ opponents begin an epic combination sequence:

But our “heroes” decide this is the perfect chance to attack. Continue reading Try On — Eleven Days of Advent and One Day of Christmas #9

Shimoneta — Eleven Days of Advent and One Day of Christmas #8

All of Shimoneta was amazing, but I’m going to pick the moment Anna went crazy as most memorable. I’ll let you watch the anime to find out about it, in case you haven’t already.

Shimoneta was one of the best anime of the year. It was hilarious throughout, and had enormously more thematic depth to it than your typical anime while being an anime about porn.
