Don’t ask for logic. Logic has nothing to do with it, darn it! Explanations, I have only context and my hopeful interpretations. And those freaking scenes all the shippers adore, darn it! Pet coins and ceilings falling and that smile. Plus stuff in the manga I’ve already raged about. And all the stuff I haven’t gotten around to yet.

2. Zuko/Mai: Avatar the Last Airbender

These two dorks.

“I don’t hate you.” “I actually kind of like you.” That gloomy girl who sighs a lot and the angry jerk. “I’m saving the jerk who dumped me.” “I love Zuko more than I fear you.” Oh yes, I will go down with this ship. Fight me.

3. Roy Mustang/Riza Hawkeye: Fullmetal Alchemist

These two dorks.

What’s better than a battle couple? Absolutely nothing. It’s not official, but we all know it’s unofficially official. I ship these back-to-back badasses like crazy.

4. Kyohei Takano/Sunako Nakahara: Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge/The Wallflower

These two dorks.

Another battle couple, in the most humorous ways imaginable. A radiant creature of light and a creepy goth chick. Nosebleeds and Belligerent Sexual Tension = Love.

5. Yakumo Saito/Haruka Ozawa: Shinrei Tantei Yakumo/Psychic Detective Yakumo

Plus these dorks.

Tsundere boy and the awesome chick who puts up with him and thinks his red eye is pretty, when everyone else is terrified of it.

Originally posted by fl-uttershy

Rescuing each other for the win. C’est l’amour.

Bonus: Marinette Dupain-Cheng (aka Ladybug)/Adrien Agreste (aka Chat Noir): Miraculous Ladybug

I couldn’t get away without adding these dorks.

I got sucked into this show, and the obliviousness is killing me. The stinking love square needs to get sorted out. Because of umbrellas and showers and valentines and puns. Plus, battle couple. With the Distressed Dude. What’s not to love?

Have you guys ever been into an anime that has so many characters that when you go onto a fanfiction site to read something on your OTP and start to scroll down to their names that you legit get frustrated because there’s so many names to go through?? Like damn, that moment when you realize there’s so many characters that you don’t even know who some of them are or they are so minor that you didn’t even realize what their name was. You then waste your life on the anime wiki reading about who all these random characters are. First world fanfiction problems, yo.

My Favorite Anime /Top 25

I always wanted to do a list like this. I have been watching anime since I was 4 so it has been 14 years now. Over the years I have been watching a lot of anime from all the different genres. I was never really picky tbh so I like the most anime I’m watching and there are only a few which I don’t like. Even then it’s not like every anime can be one of my favortites. According to Hummingbird I have watched 459 anime (including movies and ova). So obviously it was really hard to decide. There are many anime which are not in this list but I still love. But anyway here is my top 25 anime.

25. Gunslinger Girl

The first time I heard about Gunslinger Girl was when I was a bit younger. I was like maybe 10 (?) when I read about Gunslinger Girl in a booklet which was inside an anime dvd I bought (cough Whisper of the Heart cough). Anyway back then the summary sounded quite scary for me. Little girls who are killing people. Definetly something I wouldn’t watch back then. But 6-7 years later I saw Gunslinger Girl on an anime page again and it reminded me how I read about this once. So I thought why not starting it ? As you see I liked Gunslinger Girl a lot. I liked the plot the characters and the music (amazing opening) and so it’s definetly one of my fav anime. I haven’t watched Season 2 yet though since the animation completly changed and I heard that this season really sucks. So out of fear I won’t watch season 2 for now and just have this great season 1 in my mind.

24. Sket Dance

I heard about Sket Dance first when I watched Gintama. In the beginning I couldn’t really get into Sket Dance as I have this bad habit to get annoyed when something is trying to be too much like Gintama lol. I knew that the mangaka worked together with Sorachi Hideaki but even then it was kinda annoying at first. But I still kept watching it and I loved it. It kept getting better the more episodes you watched (just like Gintama) and ended up being a very enjoyable anime.

23. The Tatami Galaxy

The Tatami Galaxy is just great. I don’t even know where to start. Be it the unique animation or the smart plot and dialogues. We get to see the highschool life from the view of our main character as he is making choices about his life. But how do you know that you took the right choice ? And can you change it ? What would happen if I had taken the other choice ? Questions like this are standard in this show. Just watch it and you will be truly amazed by how well written everything is. Madhouse never dissapoints after all.

22. Psycho-Pass

I almost forgot to include Psycho Pass in my list since the second season sucked so hard. This doesn’t change the fact that the first season was amazing. Great characters, animation, setting and plot. Psycho Pass was one of those anime which really used this Cyberpunk genre in a good way and wasn’t wasting it potenial. Once you start watching it you get sucked in the world and setting. Not only is the world really detailed it’s feels quite realistic too. Great anime.

21. Dragonball/Z

My childhood anime. No matter what happens I can’t dislike it. Goku was the superhero of my childhood and it will always be like that. No matter how much the creators are milking the series I don’t care and I don’t mind seeing more and more about Dragonball. I will never forget the journey of Goku starting as a little kid growing slowly and end up being even a grandpa.

20. Bakuman

We all know Death Note. But sadly there are quite a few people who don’t even heard about Bakuman which is from the same mangaka. Personally I liked Bakuman even more then Death Note. The love the mangaka gave this manga/anime is really amazing. It’s so detailed and interesting. For everyone who wants to know more about the work “behind the scenes” should really watch this since being a mangaka is definetly not easy. The romance is a bit too cheesy and way too unrealistic but that’s bearable.

19. Kokoro Connect

This anime looks like a usual school/comedy/romance anime but it’s not. While it has those genre it adds another which is Supernatural. And this makes the series very interesting and good. I loved the psychological side of this anime and how it deals with emotions. They really did a fantastic job here. For everyone who wants to watch this don’t forget to watch the ovas afterwards since they are part of the story and very important.

18. Naruto

Ah Naruto. Back then after Dragonball finished airing on Tv Naruto was my new favorite anime. I loved every bit of it. The ninjas were badass, the jutsus were great and it just was a cool world to explore together with Team 7. With the start with Shippuuden it got even better. Even Naruto hater can’t deny the fact how great the Pain Arc was and how great every single Akatsuki Member was. The problem is that after the Pain Arc Naruto got really downhill. Like seriously. I finished the Naruto manga already and I wasn’t happy with the whole last arc. Not only that the arc is not good anyway the anime is killing us with Fillers now. It’s not even funny. But just because one arc sucks won’t make me forget all the great moments in Naruto and even though it let a rather bad vibe at the end Naruto is still Naruto and deserves the popularity it has.

17. Kimi Ni Todoke

I’m a big fan of romance anime. I grew up watching every anime on Tv. Shoujo was also there which is why I don’t mind watching Shoujo’s at all even though I’m a boy. I loved Kimi Ni Todoke for the slow pacing. There are many anime where they get together way too fast which makes it unrealistic. The slow pacing of Kimi Ni Todoke was great. This way we could learn more about all the characters. Even though sometimes you feel like hitting yourself the romance is really innocent and enjoyable. This is why Kimi Ni Todoke is one of my most favorite Romance anime/manga.

16. Detective Conan

“It was first new centuryin 100 yearsAnd when I felt like I should cryI laughed away my tears”
Not only is this opening epic and nostalgic as hell the series is still running. With over 700 episodes now it’s one of the longest running anime. I’m still up to date and I still love it. Even though I disliked Conan at first it grew to me and it ended up being something I used to watch daily on Tv.

15. Nichijou

It’s hilarious, It’s random, It’s creative and it’s just simply amazing. There is not anything I didn’t liked about this anime. From the fantastic animation (Kyoani does really a great job) to the funny characters everything works here. I really enjoyed the episodic style of this anime too as this gave Kyoani the opportunity to give us many different short and funny storys where they were also able to experiment with animation as you will see in the series quite a lot.

14. Hanasaku Iroha

My love for P.A Works started with Hanasaku Iroha. I’m a big fan of slice of life so this anime was enjoyable as hell. P.A Works has this animation style which I enjoy a lot. The character design is great and I love how much effort P.A Works puts in the background scenes. The story was pretty simple actually but that’s not that important for a slice of life anime. Important for me are the characters, dialogues and the interactions in general. The movie was great as well. Now I feel like rewatching this anime.

13. Kino no Tabi

Talking about Slice of Life Kino no Tabi is the next one. I think the most of you heard of this anime before. The journey of Kino is definetly worth watching and everytime he is in a different  place the area is just begging for getting analyzed. But it’s kinda hard to explain this anime. I think it’s better if you watch it yourself and enjoy this great anime.

12. Shirobako

P.A Works returns after the Flop Glasslip which never happened cough. Shirobako is an anime about making anime. Might sounds boring for some people but it’s definetly not boring. The diversity in the cast and dialogues are great. It’s really funny at times but also quite sad in some. What I love about Shirobako is the realism. To see how hard the characters are working and struggling. If you liked Bakuman then you also should check this out.

11. Tokyo Magnitude 8.0

“Angel Beats is the saddest anime ever” “Oh Ao Hana is soooo sad”. If you really want to watch something sad then watch Tokyo Magnitude 8.0.  The story is about an earthquake in Japan and 2 Kids who are trying to survive and get back to their home. It’s truly a masterpiece and I rewatched it a week after I finished it for the first time.

10. Haibane Renmei

There are those anime which are easy to watch, are very enjoyable and you can watch it when ever you want and then there is Haibane Renmei. It’s an anime you can’t just watch randomly. You need to focus and try to understand what’s really happening which is why I wouldn’t recommend this anime for everyone. Haibane Renmei has a great plot and starts very myserious. At the begining everything seems confusing but with time you will slowly understand what’s happening. Overall a very slow and confusing anime which is a masterpiece if you give it a chance.

9. Welcome To The NHK

There are a few anime you finish and end up thinking “ why exactly is this not popular?"Welcome to the NHK is one of them. It’s in my opinion an oustanding anime which is funny but also very painful to watch. This anime deals with emotions and a focus a lot on the psychological genre. The anime is so realistic at times that it hurts but also so funny that you can’t help but laugh. I think it’s actually hard to dislike this anime as it offers something for everyone.

8. Sakurasou no ? Pet Na Kanojo

Might be suprising for some that this is so high but yes I absolutely love this anime.The first few episodes makes this anime seems like a typical school/echhi show but it’s way more then that. The drama in this series makes the anime as great as it is. Struggling for jobs and dealing with the ups and downs in life. Jealousy and all that stuff. Don’t let the beginning stop you from watching this very great show. I also love the soundtrack a lot and I’m writing this while listening to the Op’s and Endings.

7. Hunter x Hunter 2011

To be honest the Cover kinda made me think that this show won’t be that great lol. But good thing that I still started watching it as this was one of the best shounen anime I ever watched. I didn’t liked all the arcs though and specially the before Chimera Ants weren’t that great for me but that’s okay since Meruem made me forget all this. Really hoping that the mangaka comes back from his Dragon Quest nest and keeps drawing the manga one day.

6. One Piece

Do I even need to say something ? It’s One Piece. The most popular manga ever. And there is always a reason for that. One Piece is just one great adventure which takes you with the Strawhats into different and unique worlds and adventures which you can’t possibly see anywhere else. Oda has such a great fantasy that it’s always fun seeing the Strawhats exploring the world.

5. Hajime No Ippo

Easily the best sport anime/manga. While there is all this Knb and Haikyuu stuff nowadays Hajime No Ippo is the anime/manga which beats them all. A story about boxing ? Sounds boring is what many people keep thinking. And I was one of them. Heck I even hated Boxing but this anime completly changed my mind. Now I just need to start reading the manga which has over 1000 chapters…Well then.

4. Space Brothers

Yes not only Shounen at the top but also a Seinen. Space Brothers the story about two brothers who dream to fly to the moon one day. I kinda noticed that the story that seems boring at first ends up being the most interesting anime/manga. Space Brothers seriously is amazing and that is not only because the mangaka did so much researching in his work. It’s just the atmosphere in the anime which makes it so good. The realistic characters, the calming soundtrack and and and the list goes on. Believe me watch Space Brothers you won’t regret it.

3. Steins Gate

Time Traveling is always interesting and a dream of many peoples. But time traveling is very complex and invlolves a lot of dangerous factors such as changes. Steins Gate is one of the few anime I actually would rate with the highest number possible even though some people found it hard to get into (not for me). But even if you would find hard getting into it bear it. Because once it reaches "this” point you won’t be able to watching it anymore. Steins Gate is always at the top of many anime sites for a reason. I really can’t wait for the next season.

2. FMA Brotherhood

I kinda noticed that my top 3 is almost the same as the MAL top 3 only in a different order. But anyway FMA Brotherhood had for me the most interesting story so far. No anime did amaze me as much as FMA did regarding the story and characters. It’s such an epic and fantastic journey that FMA will always stay one of my favorite anime. I have to mention that I’m talking about FMA Brotherhood though as the first version of FMA wasn’t that impressive for me.

1. Gintama

Number one is clearly Gintama. Gintama was the anime which was the hardest to get into from all these 24 anime mentioned here but ended up being my fav. Wouldn’t it be for all those messages I got to keep watching it I would have dropped Gintama long ago. But once I saw that Gintama actually has a story I started liking it. And this was also the time where I enjoyed the Comedy before then before. With each season Gintama got even better to the point that it was my favorite anime.

when you are watching a show or an anime or reading a book and they reveal something extra shocking and you have to pause and just sit there to let the information sink in. I love that 

if you have the idea that any female character has to be depressed, angry or acting like she hates the world to be considered badass, that if she cries she immediately becomes weak, and if she smiles becomes pathetic and loses development it’s ok, i respect that, just please stop pushing people into thinking the same.

please respect if someone else thinks her favourite girls are awesome no matter what. stop pushing you bitterness when you see someone else being happy with their fictional characters. a lot of us come here to forget a little our hard lives admiring these awesome fictional girls. just stop.
