Ik the year isn't done yet but I don't see anything next season being above an 8/10 (heard beastars should be a contender but don't know the source material myself) so I thought I'd make the poll since there's a similar popular thread made for suggesting that AOT is AOTY. I tried to add everything I remember seeing get a good amount of praise. I'm still expecting AOT to get the most points of course but I want to see how many everything else gets.

My vote goes to either Mob Psycho 100 II or Vinland Saga.

and Ik that Shield hero is shit before I get asked why it's listed but a lot of people still like it

Mob Psycho 100 II, without a doubt, including best animation.

aot deserves best animation. vinland saga has potential, but we'll see what happens as it progresses. araburu kisestsu deserves a mention as well though.

AoT wiiiins...stiffest animation and dullest cgi of the yeeeaaaar! I like that show, but the animation has never been why I've stuck with it for three seasons. Rarely bad, but never great.

Vinland Saga assuming that Wit Studio will keep doing a stellar job with its adaptation just like with the first six episodes. If they screw this up later then Mob Psycho 100 II takes the spot. I think though that the latter has the "Episode of the Year" (episode 5).

Vinland Saga has literally 6 episodes out, out of 24. I mean, I hope it does well, but it can still go down. Examples: Gangsta, Erased, Etc
I find this poll being done in August to be ridiculous

Kimetsu no Yaiba is my pick.
Shield Hero shouldn't even be considered
Ultimately, My Hero Academia will win because Crunchylawl

Most of Jojo's new season aired this year so that's my vote, second at this point Demon Slayer with Mob being a close third.

I totally agree that it's still too soon to this poll.
Q4 still to go with Boku no Hero Academia, Nanatsu no Taizai, Sword Art Online, Psycho-Pass, Fate Grand Order, Chihayafuru, etc.

Personally, my AOTY is/aren't the ones that I rated higher, like Shingeki no Kyojin because I already expected amazing things from them.
For me, these awards always go to those Anime that really surprised me.

So, as of yet, I would vote for Yakusoku no Neverland and Kaguya-sama.
Vinland Saga, Dororo and Tate no Yuusha have a good chance here but I didn't watch them yet.

It's far too early for this mate, we're 2/3 through the year and some of those shows have just started.
Once you realize that what others think about what you enjoy doesn't matter, you will finally be free

So you should wait to see. Made in Abyss, Houseki no Kuni and many other titles are telling you should wait

I'd say Sarazanmai was my favourite this year. The animation was great, the art style was beautiful, the soundtracks were amazing and catchy, the voice acting was also quite great, and the story was just breathtakingly amazing.

The way it was made, it could have either been great or a complete disappointment. For me, it was the former. Everything tied together so perfectly. It has some unanswered questions, but they're not that big of a deal. I have never loved an anime so much!

If there's other anime from the year you'd choose instead then let me know. As I said, I picked what I saw getting the most praise. Not really my fault I didn't see many others get the same amount. I'd add in Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation but barely anyone has seen that in comparison to the others.

I'd say Mob psycho 100 2 would be AOTY
But I'd also say Vinland saga if it continues to be great could be the best non sequel anime of the year.
The Rising of the Shield Hero is probably one of the worst shows I've given any time to this year.

These early discussions are so pointless when the current anime of the season have not finished airing yet and we still have one more season to go.

Demon Slayer still doesn't top Mob Psycho this year, not even close. Ufotable has a great VFX department and probably some of the best compositing in the industry, but it doesn't hold a candle to Mob.

Including Fire Force but not Fruits Basket is an interesting choice. I guess shoujo anime must exist in a murky void labeled HERE THERE BE DRAGONS.

Vinland Saga or Mob Psycho 100. Everything else is inferior to those two aforementioned.

So far AOT. Vinland saga is my second pick. But we all know my hero academia is going to win AOTY.

Wow, I love shingeki now!
Thanks for opening my eyes with that concise argument. Brb, gotta go appreciate AoT a shitton now, might even cream over isekai animu later.

Vinland Saga, as long as the rest of the season lives up to the quality of the first few episodes.

I’ll watch it eventually but I’d be comparing it to Beck so much that I wouldn’t like it.


I saw a few episodes of Beck on TV years ago, and hated it.

Given is a million times better.

JoJo was aired in 2018, so, with almost 95% certainty, it will not even be nominated. As far as I know, it's only chosen anime that began aired the same year

Actually, I added the "trust me" to make sure people knew that I was being serious, but it appears that it's made an opposite impact. :P

Seriously, Given is the greatest thing running right now. Everyone needs to check it out.

Because it started in Fall 2018. Also I thought Golden Wind was a step backwards from Diamond is Unbreakable personally.

I do hope they make recap episode for season 1 and season 2 because it has been long time.
