For me it's still Dororo followed by The Promised Neverland, Bungou Stray Dogs S3 and Mob Psycho 100 S2 in that order. At least until I start watching other 2019 anime.

It's really good (a lil over hyped after ep19) and it has tough competition for anime of the year.

Like mob psycho 2 and snk s3p2 if we are considering sequels. Vinland saga has the most chances of winning if it stays true to the manga and bnha is going to be adaptation the best arc (acc. To me and most manga readers) of the manga in s4 next season.

Doesn't even contend for AOTY. Just my opinion, though.

For me it's not AoTY by far. It's a good Shounen, but that's it. It suffers from all the usual Shounen faults and more, even if it's overall pretty solid. But there is a lot of missed potential imo.

For the time being show closest to being AoTY for me is Vinland Saga which is just beginning, but it's already a lot better than Yaiba. JoJo part 5 is next in line. Chihayafuru S3 looks like only other possible contender so far, so I'm looking forward to the next season. Maybe there will still be some surprise show too which might overtake them all. But Yaiba stands no chance.

It is for me, i loved every single episode and the animation quality is really good.
I also loved other series this year like The Rising of the Shield Hero, Dororo and TPN and definitely AOT but with the exception of Kimetsu no Yaiba they all disappoint a little.

We'll see. It's a great anime for sure. I've got my eye on Vinland Saga though as a potential AOTY contender.

Kimetsu no yaiba does nothing better than the worst shounens, the only thing that's making it good is ufotable, but I personally don't like the animation because of the CGI. When I watch anime I want to see drawings, not a videogame cinematic.

Kimetsu no yaiba is has not even a single chance to be even in the top 10 AOTY

No, it's not.

You can't just say the best anime of 2019 only for a great one episode. It is good overall, but it's far from a masterpiece. I mean, it's my opinion, but that's what I look as well as the others. I and the other people love this series because of the final, but I think again about the other episode and it's not as hype as it is.

Does jojo count if it started in fall 2018? And if it does, does run with the wind as well?


Personally I would count it because during the part in fall it managed to hardly show the good parts, so it would be doomed to not be AoTY just because it began airing late in 2018, which I think isn't fair. I think different people might have different opinions on this matter though. But since it aired more episodes during 2019 than 2018 I think it should be 2019 show. As for Run with the Wind that's harder for me to answer, but I would probably count it as 2019 show too for the sake of AoTY.

I prefer to choose year show ends in because it already managed to show all it had rather than season where it began when a lot is still open at the end of the year.

It shouldn't, but they will certainly throw up in there just because it's JoJo.

Run With The Win is not winning nothing. Remember the rule, only popular & hyped stuff win.

Be careful with posts like this

Here, on MAL you can't have your own opinion, if you disagree with someone, you have "shit" taste

If you think Kimetsu no Yaiba is the best this year, then you're wrong

Let's say if SnK fans say that the obvious AOTY is SnK, they're probably right

About my own opinion:
It's definitely one of the best this year(maybe the best) so far

I haven't seen it but i've read quite few reviews and it seems they really like it alot, it's just no one was hyped for that when it came out, no one knew about it either nor anyone whose, eventually will choose an AOTY or any awards for that matter, will be given to it. Unfortunately, this is how it works.

So far it's not better if you ask me(but the actual plot will start next episode),but it definitely has the potential to be one of the best this year

And IMO, this season only Vinland Saga has the chance to produce such a high quality episode like episode 19 of KnY

No, not even close. Best animation of 2019 quite possibly but the story and characters are nowhere near good enough to merit aoty imo. It's been fairly standard battle shounen stuff so far with it's own personal spin on it but nothing that makes it stand out enough. Outstanding animation is only one part of anime, I feel like too many people ignore that.

people also ignore the average plot in snk and mob and they call it aoty for mob it just the animation fight scene that make people hyped more and it the same for snk people start hyped with levi vs beast titan in snk s3p1 even before they animated in snks3p2 and You can't compare one show in his beginning to another in his penultimate season.if it not for the studios who make those anime with thes animation they wont get that much hype in the end all of them are shounin with different story

Mob pyscho doesn't have a plot but it's still enjoyable. But Snk has a goddamn plot and direction in the story. At least both mob and snk are different than other typical shounen anime. Demon Slayer is honestly nothing new and not that interesting, just put a bunch of demons there and let the mc fight them.

Mob psycho's best episode was the one without action i.e. ep.7 which even beats the other episodes who have action in them and the best arc in Mob psycho was the arc without action.

And so does in Aot the arc without the action is my favorite: truth revealing arc > battle arc.

I'd say Demon Slayer's story is pretty weak for me that's why something like this happens, but that's my point of view so...

I like it a lot but it ain't aoty for me, granted, it's still ongoing, as the rest of the shows this season, not to mention we still have fall coming up. But looking at the shows coming up, I don't see one from fall taking it, my aoty will probably be either fruits basket or mob 2 or aot s3 p2 but there are definitely lots of options this year including kimetsu, great that most have something to enjoy, let's hope this season and the next will keep it up and have a nice day.

Thank you! I may not be a huge shounen fan for several reasons. But some people really love shonen and that's that. If they call AOT, Dr Stone or some other generic shonen anime of the year, let those shows be AOTY for them. It does not have to be yours. Everyone has different opinions.

Yes, Demon Slayer story-wise, can be generic compared to something like TPN. We all know Nezuko may turn back into a human in the end. But I felt the slow pacing of the series was quite nice and perhaps unique for a battle shonen series.

As for my opinion, I think Demon Slayer is tied between TPN and Fruits Basket as AOTY, for me that is.

Allow me to teach you something useful:

Many people say that anime is not a cartoon. But in the end, they're all nothing but drawings on paper.

I'm not totally caught up with it, but as of episode 14, it hasn't really kept my interest. That's why I've fallen so far behind on it; I'm just not excited to watch it every week. I can understand why it has its fans, but I don't think it comes close to best anime of the year, at least not for me. I doubt it'll even be in my top 20, honestly.

The only mold that Demon Slayer breaks in any capacity is the art and animation, it's otherwise exceedingly mediocre, it's the same thing with Fire Force.

The only difference is despite both having extremely trope heavy characters that are predictable/interchangeable with same trope characters from different shows, is that DS is far more character driven and FF is narrative driven. You essentially will like 1 more depending on if you prefer characters or world building, because i must say the world of DS is quite barren, pretty much demons exist and that's about it, nothing else interesting or different. Whereas Fire Force operates on a much bigger scale, beyond societal changes but the entire world is different through multiple layers of depth, and it's a journey through that world.

Edit: I should also add, that my biggest problem with Demon Slayer is the interjections of comedy, which is the antithesis of horror and serious tones. I was in love with the first episode, how gritty and raw it was, but that quickly shattered with the repeated slapstick comedy. They're opposites cancelling each other out and need to be treated differently, it's not simple levity when the 2 biggest themes are slapstick comedy and seriousness.

It isn't bad for.It certainly is not anime of the year. It is just hype for episode 19. The good thing the anime has is that the anime adaptation is solid.

Characters are not memorable, dialogue can get super corny,premise is generic and the comedy is hit or miss. Episode 19 would have been a 10 for me if it wasn't for the super forced speech Tanjiro gave lmao.

All in all the show is a solid 8 to a light 9

Why are those threads still made, i am scared, the best show for a facct is and will be Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou or as cultivated individuels such as myself would say, Is it possible for this Isekai to be a better parody of a serious show than the likes of shingeki no kyojin or Dr.Stone?!
