So I wanted to try a few of these Top 10 Week lists, and today’s theme is TV. The only TV shows I ever watch are The Flash and anime, so unless I wanted to rate my favorite Flash episodes, this is what I’m doing.
1. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
This is just a good show. What more is there to say about FMA? The writing is great, the animation is wonderful, and the characters are likable.
This was the first show to make me genuinely cry about a fictional death. For a 12-episode series, Erased has got to be one of the best in terms of storytelling and keeping everything very smoothly integrated into the story. Seriously, this show has no filler.
3. Gurren Lagann
Again, just a really good story with likable characters. The mechs in this show look incredible, too. As a bonus, Gurren Lagann is one of my friend’s favorite shows, so there’s some sentimentality there for me.
Once again, just a straight-up fabulous story, told well and with good characters. And again no filler, which is a big plus for me.
5. My Hero Academia
This one should come as no surprise. 😛 My Hero is fun to watch, but it also has some honestly good writing and character development, which is pretty uncommon in the shounen genre.
6. Death Note
The first part, not the part after *cough* you know. I love the mutual cat-and-mouse interactions between Light and L, and I love mystery genre stuff anyway.
7. One Punch Man
It’s just fun! I LOVE the animation style, and all the characters are designed very appealingly.
8. Mob Psycho 100
Full disclaimer: I have not finished this show yet, and that’s the only reason it’s not higher on this list. I’m on Episode 9, and so far it’s been fantastic. Think Soul Eater crossed with One Punch Man, with a touch of Puella Magi Madoka Magica. Which brings me to my next entry…
9. Puella Magi Madoka Magica
I’m a sucker for disturbing horror stuff, as well as just about anything music-related. And boy, does PMMM fill the bill. I’m not going to say any more for fear of spoiling some of the twists.
10. Soul Eater
Only reason this is so low is that I watched it almost a year ago and can’t remember most of the show. 😛 But it was the first anime I watched, and it’s another friend’s favorite, so again, sentiment.
