About cat_clan
I love to keep updated about the state of the Anime and Manga industry in Japan. I also like to follow the little industry we have here in Mexico.

I'm an editor/writer for a Spanish Anime site called Anime.MX, if you speak Spanish, please give us a visit.

---------------------------------------------------

How I rate my entries (which can be seen in the tag section):
0-5 rate for art, which includes animation, character designs, background art and visual delightful. (A on my tags)
0-5 rate for story and character development. (S on my tags)
0-5 rate for music, which includes voice acting, opening/ending and insert songs, background music, sound edition and how does all of this complements the visuals seen on screen. (M on my tags)
0-5 rate for how much I liked the series, completely subjective. (E on my tags)

I assign 2.5 points per each category based on the rate and sum it up to get the total score for the Anime. If the sum ends up with decimals, I tend to round up or down depending of how ground breaking I think it is or how much I like it. I also tend to consider each Anime type different. So a Blu-Ray bonus material is rated based on how well does it perform as a bonus material, not as a TV Anime or as a Movie.

I usually don't drop a series and try to finish it once I started watching it, in order to have a more educated opinion about the show as a whole. But sometimes I just can't because of time restrictions and end up having a lot of stalled Anime for long periods.

Hello.
Thank you for your hard work in making MyAnimeList become a better website for anime/manga/similar things fans.

Full list for the whole year is here. If I had to describe each of the top 10 in a sentence (or two)...

1. Mouretsu Pirates - A supremely fun and intelligent sci-fi that fuses a bishoujo-heavy cast with a classic space opera storyline , takes the idea of "legal pirates" seriously, and manages to execute everything flawlessly over two cour. Best new character and best new seiyuu of the year in Katou Marika/Koamtsu Mikako.

2. Hyouka - Deftly utilizes mundane mysteries as vehicles through which the characters uncover as much and more about themselves and their relationships with each other as they do about the tricks they're unraveling. Hands down the most gorgeous production values of the year as well.

3. Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb - Four seasons in, Hidamari-sou feels like a second home, and the girls who live there like a second family. It is deeply soothing, funny, and above all very sweet to see how each character cares for, and gets support from, the others as they try to discover what they want to do with their lives and who they want to be.

4. Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! - A story of equal parts drama and humor that teaches us that there's more to growing up than conforming to societal norms, that "normal" is usually the most fraudulent persona of all, and there's a little bit of a chuunibyou dreamer in all of us - so perhaps we should let them out once in a while. We might just enjoy it.

5. Girls und Panzer - [see previous comment]

6. Dog Days' - Much like the main characters visiting the fantasy world of Flonyard, the one and only objective of Dog Days' is having fun and if plot isn't needed to achieve that, discard it. The cast is huge and every effort is made to highlight as many of them as possible, primarily though battles that serve as like friendly international sporting events.

7. Yuru Yuri♪♪ - Similar to Hidamari Sketch but heavier on skit comedy and lesser on the soothing "iyashikei" atmosphere. Ridiculously cute, with impeccable comedic timing from the seiyuu, and last but not least, yuri!

8. Saki Achiga-hen - While not as action-packed with supernatural, over the top mahjong insanity as the main series, like the first season it features a large cast with ample focus on characters outside of the titular team and all the youthful passion of a sports anime without being about, well, a traditional physical sport (as those are a bit of a turnoff for me). Oh and yuri here too of course.

9. Jinrui wa Suitaishimashita - Dry humor, surreal wit, and morbid observations about the ridiculousness of society in a world where humanity has declined and child-like, well-meaning, insatiably (and dangerously) curious "fairies" have become the dominant life form. All delivered in brilliantly snarky deadpan by Nakahara Mai, the voice of Watashi.

10. Ano Natsu de Matteru - Top notch teenage romantic drama, probably the best pure romantic drama of the year, as expected from Nagai Tatsuyuki of Toradora. The little callbacks to Onegai Teacher are also fun.

thanks for the recommendation. I'll check it out!

The only thing that keeps it from near perfection is the unfortunate production delays that have pushed the final two episodes back to March. I hate when a great show loses momentum like that, but there's not much that can be done about it...

The reason it's selling so much is that it captures audiences from a lot of different angles. The girls are adorable and very likable. The highly accurate depiction of the tanks grab military otaku, and 'bishoujo military" god Shimada Fumikane (Strike Witches) did the original designs. The action is incredibly intense and exciting. Even someone like me, who hates 3DCG in anime more than anyone alive, can't really criticize the way it's used for the tanks - it's by far the best integration of 3DCG into anime ever (granted that's a low bar, but it's really well done). Fanservice is kept minimal to appeal to people who would be turned off by it, while at the same time the naturally attractive designs and a bit of bikini/bathing fanservice is there to appeal to people who do like such things (it's a very good balance). The story is tightly paced and handles an absurd premise quite seriously, without forgetting to be a crapton of fun in the process.

In short, yeah, it really is that good. It's in my top 10 of 2012, though I haven't decided where. Possibly #6-8.

Wenko606 | 12-29-12, 1:19 AM
wow I have a compatibility of 92% with you

TheOldHome | 12-20-12, 7:58 PM
Nah I'm just not in the mood for that kind of show. I might un-drop it later on though.

Sarahtoga104 | 12-01-12, 8:16 PM
No problem and yeah I'm not picky with genres or anything as long as it's good who really cares what it's about I don't comprehend people who will only watch action or only watch romance both genres and others have so much too offer. I understand some things do get worse with age and some things like Digimon Tamers only get better as strange as that sounds but I recently re-watched it and I am honestly surprised how it did not give me nightmares as a child.

Sarahtoga104 | 11-30-12, 6:07 PM
Thank you for the friend request and I totally understand when I first formed my list it was more of gathering the shows I had seen than ratings came later. I have been watching for about 7 years now and I have no life so that is why my list is so big but your list is also quite impressive.

TheOldHome | 11-30-12, 4:31 PM
Thanks! I really appreciate your recommendations. Code Geass and Gurren Laggan haven't made too much of an impact (yet), but I am going to give each show a solid chance to get my attention.

"Mawaru Penguindrum, I think you are going to like it."
-I hope I do :)

"Summer Wars, if you liked Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo, I think you'll like this. Is really good."
-Planning to watch it soon!

"Essentially you have a pretty good plan to watch list, lots of good titles and from different genres. There are some titles you could add like Shoujo Kakumei Utena, Niea_7, Tenkuu no Escaflowne, Fate/Stay Night & Zero, Kino no Tabi, currently airing Shin Sekai Yori and more Ghibli films. If you want to go into the bizarre, you could try Nekojirou Gekijou or Nekojiru-sou."
-Thanks I'll look into them! Btw Kino is already on my to watch list.

I have a rather bad relationship with Hanasaku Iroha for various reasons, so that made me approach Tari Tari with great hesitation. I'm sure it colored my perceptions of Tari Tari, unfairly even. But early on I found myself only really caring about Konatsu, and once her initial arc was over there just wasn't a lot left for me. I am not interested in the two male characters, and while Wakana got better by the time I dropped it, her arc didn't hit me emotionally the way it did most everyone else.

Sawa seems to be the most popular character, and I like her well enough, but with no broader motivation to watch the show, Sawa plus whatever screentime Konatsu would manage just wasn't enough to keep me around.
