12 Days of Anime: Top 12 Best Animes of 2018

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Yo!!! Welcome to my first ever “12 Days of Anime” series.

To start everything off, I will be sharing to you all my Top 12 animes of 2018.

This is going to be different from any top of the year list that you usually see. How different? My top 12 will be divided into 4 parts, which each part represents one season. In every season, I will pick out my top 3. 4 x 3 = 12. LOL. Yeah. After that, I will rank them all in one list.

Ooohohohoh…this is going to be interesting
Anyway, without further ado, here’s my top favorites for each season.

Sora yori mo Tooi Basho
Slow Start
Violet Evergarden

Yay!!! Choosing my top 3 for this season was by far, the easiest. This 3 animes touched my heart in so many ways, it was hard not to love them. For sure, the 3 of them are strong contenders to the top.

Wotaku no Koi wa Muzukashii
Boku no Hero Academia S3

Uuugghhhh…this season is a hard one. I had a hard time choosing because there’s alot of top-tier animes released this season. I really enjoyed Uma musume and Comic Girls, but Hinamatsuri was alot better in terms of enjoyment. Shokugeki no Souma Season 3 part B wasn’t also able to make into the cut, because of the inconsistent pacing. But I still love all of them.

Asobi Asobase
Happy Sugar Life
Hataraku Saibou

Okay, this season was a weird one. There were too many mediocre animes released this season, though, I still did enjoy most of them. Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro and Grand Blue were really funny, but Asobi Asobase left a bigger impact to me compared to them. I also haven’t finished much of this season’s animes. Most of them are on-hold, like Hanebado, Free, and Sirius.

Tensei Shitara Slime Datte Ken
Goblin Slayer

Oh this season is a blast!! So many good animes airing, I can’t choose properly. Even though this season is still ongoing, I still have a top list for it. I know you might be wondering why the big names like SAO or Jojo is not on the list. Well, cuz I haven’t seen them yet. For SAO, I’m planning on rewatching the whole franchise before diving into the latest season (I still have time….50 episodes, duh), while for the new Jojo series, I haven’t seen Diamond is Unbreakable. Heh. I’m sorry but it can’t be helped. I keep forgetting to watch it. Lel.

I also have other special mentions that wasn’t able to make in to the cut: Kaze ga Tsuyoku FuiteiruZombieland Saga, and Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san. All of them are really really good but the ones on top are better. Also the other animes I didn’t mention are still on my PTW list. I will find time to watch them in the future.

Now, lemme present to you the list that you guys had been waiting for…
