Critics and Connoisseurs Challenge

EXPLANATION
For over 10 years now, Critics and Connoisseurs club members have been digging through countless titles with an objective of making the ultimate list of exceptional anime and manga across all genres. By their own words, "The Critics & Connoisseurs club strives to find all the high quality anime and manga and make a list of all those highly recommended exemplary titles."

And now, as a collaboration between clubs and also to celebrate 10 years anniversary of C&C, we bring you the Critics and Connoisseurs Challenge! Try this carefully handpicked list ranging from classics to hidden gems, guaranteed to catch your attention.

Try also anime version of the challenge here.

And if this challenge caught your attention, you can join the ranks of Critics and Connoissers right here. Participate in weekly voting and nominate anime and manga that you think should be added to the list.

Rules:
  • If publishing, must be caught up with the latest translated chapter.
  • Previously read can be used.
