What… the…. What is this? Like, I’ve seen some bad top anime lists (*cough* IGN *cough*). This is not that. This is just WIERD. And it only gets wierder the more I look at it. I’m going to go lie down now.

first time seeing bungou stray dogs in any lists like this like finally?? can't really say it's completely underrated, but it sure deserves more recognition and hype.

I'm even more curious at why does people still replaying on 5 years old thread about (Outdated) anime ranking lol.

Feb 16, 2022 1:48 AM by MahiaErebeaNegi

Well, that list really confuses me

Some great animes isn't there or low in rank.
Some weird animes is on top.
And some I was surprised they are even there.

Maybe that's the purpose of it,
to shock us :) :)
