  1. Nice comprehensive compilation here. I’m surprised March Comes in like a Lion or Yuri wasn’t on your top 5 story list. =P

      I dropped Lion pretty early, so it’s hard to have it on the list when I’m not keeping up with the story. As for Yuri, I watched one episode after being told it was good and it didn’t really grab me, so I haven’t watched anymore episodes since.

      1. I can see why. I’ve been getting disappointed with March comes in like a lion lately. Also dropped yuri recently. Those two shows do have an immense amount of hype though

        Generally speaking, what’s super popular in anime, I end up not liking nearly as much. Don’t know if it’s a “hipster” kind of attitude, or if I straight up just don’t like most mainstream anime, but it’s a thing that happens.
