Just like Spring 2008. Am I seeing a kind of pattern here? o.o Best season of 2008, IMO o/

Top this season: ef2, Akasaka, Index, Ga-Rei, Toradora!, Kannagi. (did I say fall is best season this year? o/)

Also many high-profile fansubber for this season o/

Extra: Best movie 2008: Kara no Kyoukai :]

Combining them all, we get top 15 for 2008 (my edition) o.o

2008 Top 15 (personal picks)

1. Kara no Kyoukai

Do I need to explain this? D:

Here be my explanation: EPIC.

2. ef – a tale of melodies

Not as much wtfness as first season but still very good overall o/

Also explained everything (more or less)

3. Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka

Simple: Yuuhi <3

4. Toaru Majutsu no Index

Don’t ask me why :>

5. Ga-Rei Zero

I think I like seeing people killed (Soukou no Strain, anyone? XD). Everyone on promotional poster nonetheless. LMAO.

6. Allison to Lillia


7. Toradora!

Can’t get enough of the three heroines’ antics

8. Mnemosyne

Yuri? And involves Kugimiya Rie? LOLOLOL.

9. Strike Witches

Also LULZ. In bad good way for this one :>

10. Code Geass R2

OMFG trainwreck. Liked the ending

11. Macross Frontier

Does not make sense. Also WTFLOL last episode.

12. Kannagi


Last episodes is seriousbusiness.

13. Spice and Wolf

Lesson in economy. Don’t try to apply it in this age and day.

  1. “Kaiba (1 – I donโ€™t know if Iโ€™ll continue this)” < No! You should definately. You already watch wierd stuff, so this wouldn’t be a problem. ๐Ÿ˜€ I promise you won’t be disappointed. Well, actually you will, but you will learn to accept the hardships and continue to the wonderful ending. ๐Ÿ˜€

    “Top this season: ef2, Akasaka…” < Incest FTW!

    “Best season of 2008, IMO o/” < Couldn’t agree more. It has all. Clannad to make me cry, Gundam for my Sci-Fi (I’m a Sci-Fi fanboy) and Action Fix, and Nodame to make me laugh. What more do I need? Oh. Almost forgot. R+V for the pantsu, I mean the oppai! Jiggly. Hm. Yummy. ๐Ÿ˜€

    “Extra: Best movie 2008: Kara no Kyoukai :]” < I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m putting my money on Vexille, which I haven’t seen properly yet either(as I’m still subbing it).

  2. Ah senpai, a nice article to be a reference. ๐Ÿ™‚

    *pick some Kara no Kyoukai as sample*
