Please take note that this is a list of personal preferences and does not necessarily reflect the general trends in anime. Also, there are differences between the contents of this post (i.e. my top anime) and what my MAL statistics show. This is due to me considering my personal taste more in this post than in MAL.

This post was powered by these videos and several mugs of hot chocolate. Apologies to Valence for taking up space for a personal post.

    Cool so many I haven’t seen! Keen to check some of these out. Yew.

  2. TRazor says:

    LOL @ Scythe Master. I watched Phantom only a week back, but I already forgot him.

    And whoa, Madoka Magica all over the place.

    Also good to know that I haven’t watched any of those Annoying Anime except Fractale.

    • @fkeroge says:

      I think I should have put a disclaimer on recency bias, but oh well.

      I tend to overthink anime, so those that leave me hanging, or those that are plain garbage will surely annoy me.

  3. meltedpoo says:

    We seem to share the same tastes for male characters. Well…except for those who are in animes I haven’t actually seen and hating Yagami Light.

    • @fkeroge says:

      Light left me with a really bad impression. sure, he’s academically smart, but I don’t like how he does things. And years-long plans? Oh, please…

      Besides, everything started with his stupidity of not trying to fully understand that notebook before killing off people. He also let his emotion get the better of him at times. I don’t think those were really things a wise guy would do.

  4. Valence says:

    It’s a blog, so no harm done ;D

  5. glothelegend says:

    Not enough Rie Kugimiya, who is the greatest seiyuu of all time…..ALL TIME.

  6. ~xxx says:

    Yui Horie… WooHoo!

    I bet the most liked antagonist at the moment is Kyubey… MAn, I just wanna crush that guy into pieces.

    And I got to think that I should start watching death note for more action.

    • @fkeroge says:

      Yui Horie is a veteran.

      Kyubey will always have a place in my heart as one of the most magnificent bastards ever created by man.

      Death Note… is Death Note, I guess.

  7. Nopy says:

    Haha, glad to see that you didn’t like Prism Ark either. Some friends and I made some parody subs for it when it was airing and after a while we were getting haters flaming us for “ruining” a “great” series.

    • @fkeroge says:

      Prism Ark? Great? People sure say some weird things sometimes.

      My personal tastes aside, Prism Ark was bad in so many aspects that I don’t want to mention anymore. And given that I watched this when I was still new to anime (2008), me rating an anime badly was very rare, if I ever rated an anime badly before I watched Prism Ark.

  8. Ristlin says:

    Aside from a few differences, my list is actually rly similar. Good job puting them in a comprehensive list.

  9. MkMiku says:

    Haven’t seen Dragon Crisis! yet, but I guess there’s no reason to now. Lol, Onii-chan no Koto seems to be on everyone’s “annoyed” list.

    • @fkeroge says:

      Dragon Crisis’ cliche levels will kill you and watching Onii-chan no koto will make your brain cells rot. Avoid them at all costs.

  10. kluxorious says:

    I just realized that we have different taste in anime. Also… L is an antagonist? I think otherwise.

    • @fkeroge says:

      I prefer the more drama-oriented and/or family themed anime to the more famous shounen anime. I guess I’ve grown to like heartwarming stories above all else, but I also like absolutely dark series like Madoka. I’m weird like that. ^^

      L is an antagonist to Light’s anti-hero role. At least that’s how I see it.

  11. bakuhasu says:

    ABOUT TIME SOMEONE MENTIONS CLANNAD: After Story as their favorite anime of all time! Just taking a peep in what a follower in my list of twitter does and boy you had me there with CLANNAD. Great list of tops and looking forward to whatever you dish out in the future!

    On another note: You tune in our podcast? Just asking..

    • @fkeroge says:

      Haha, thanks! CLANNAD After Story is my favorite anime of all time AND it is the anime that I conquered my dormitory with. My taste in anime is pretty much anything that invokes strong feelings from me, but I prefer drama and heartwarming stories above all else.

      About the podcast, I will check them out when I get the time. ^^

      Thanks for reading and commenting! ^^

    Why doesn’t Fullmetal Alchemist make it?
