I heard you like lists: Best and Worst of Anime 2018, 3 seasons in.

Hey guys

We are three seasons into this year of Anime, and before we head into the final fall season (which is looking to be pretty stacked with great shows) I wanted to rattle off a list of my personal best and worst of Anime in 2018 so far of what I’ve watched. This’ll probably change after Fall is said and done, so this is a record to see if it does! (and so I can remember to compare)

Will this list change after the final season? I’m sure it will, but let’s get into it after the cut!

  1. I love that Goro got best guy. For all my issues with Darling in the Franxx, I really liked Goro as a character and felt he needed more focus and screen time (mostly because I enjoyed it when he was being focused on). Great list and it will be interesting to see what is still on here at the end of the year and what gets added in from the final season.


  2. Goro is very much the heart of Franxx (Mitsuru and Kokoro are it’s soul) and it’s a shame that there wasn’t more development on him, especially since Hiro and Zero-two basically stop being characters halfway through. I was going to give Worst Guy to Yuuto from Master of Ragnarok, but that would require him to have effort put into him, and Hiro is just something else.
