Anime

A visitor to my site recently asked if I had a page listing the anime I’ve watched and enjoyed … and I was aghast to realize that I did not.

I think sharing the things that I enjoy might help others with similar tastes find something new: and might encourage them to share something right back! So without further ado, here is an on-going list of the anime (and manga!) that I’ve enjoyed. I’ve included a star rating similar to what you’d find with books (so you can see the ones I really like versus the ones I just enjoyed) along with a basic genre description. Feel free to post suggestions for any unlisted shows I should watch!

Note: Most shows were watched on Netflix or Crunchyroll, though there are a few older titles that I own on DVD or watched back in the day on Toonami/Adult Swim.
