My Top 5 Animes with Great Animation

I promised myself I would take some time to admire anime on technical merits and then promptly forgot all about it. It’s not that I don’t want to.

Top 5 Badly Rated Anime Which I Loved

Top 5 Anime Families I Would Like To Get Adopted Into

I wrote a super confusing list called top 5 members of my anime family an in the process, quite figuratively, I tripped over the idea for this list. By and large top lists tend to be highly subjective however this one will be even more than usual. Today I don’t plan to talk about the...

This title is so confusing. I’m not talking about anime families at all. I should though. Why didn’t I think of this sooner… I will. This isn’t affectation guys, I am actually thinking up stuff as I write and writing out my thought process. I really need an editor is what I’m saying. Anyways, this...
