[OLD CHART! Still working on the updated version]
~The Mandatory Newbie Anime Pack~
Few considerations about it…
1- Series are in decrescent order of importance.
Yes, it means I consider the first ones to be the best.
┗[1.1] Exception to the item above: Romance and Psychological.
In both, all series are great.
2- Last row reserved for recent series, doesn’t necessarily means it’s worse then the older ones.
3- Series that have more then one strong genre are tagged under the one that stands out.
4- I added the “Deviant” label for series that excel in any genre. TV Series/Movies/OVAs/AMVs, hidden gems and above-average.
┗[4.1] Dokuro-chan is an exception. It’s there for its mediocrity.
“It’s so bad that it’s good”.
5- Series with more then 100+ episodes demand a lot of commitment, only watch if you’re sure about it.
6- There is no separated column for SpaceOpera neither Sci-fi. Series from these genres are mixed inside Psy, Mystery, Mecha and Adventure.
7- Most of the series listed here have some sort of sequel/side-story that is worth watching as well.
┗[7.1] Haruhi’s Endless Eight (2nd season) is an exception to n. 7
┗[7.2] FMP? Fumofuu! is already a spin-off from FMP. Both are in the chart.
8- If you consider yourself as a Drama/Romance fan and haven’t watched Clannad/Kanon/Air yet… Do it now.
9- Most of the Slice-Of-Life are “Cute girls, doing cute things, in a cute way”.
┗[9.1] Bartender, Kannagi, GTO and Haruhi are exceptions.
┗[9.2] Yes, K-ON! is not here.
Instead I added TariTari, another highschool music oriented story.
Feedback greatly appreciated!
