I know I haven’t posted for a while, so I thought that I would create a simple list of all the Anime that I have caught up on this year. This has been an Anime filled year, having re-discovered my affection for the genre in February.

I have only included the Anime that I actually finished not the stuff I started and then abandoned cough Seven Sins cough. I mainly watch Anime on Netflix and Blu-Ray/DVD though recently discovered Crunchyroll. You can check out more of what I have and am watching on my Hummingbird profile, I try to keep it up to date. Hopefully this list will help you discover something new, or rediscover something you loved in the past. This is simple a list, I was going to create a link to each item on Amazon, but a lot of it isn’t on there (I know I was shocked too).

This is probably because although I was aware of the practise, I had rarely personally come across it. My original advice in the post still stands, use the rating as a guide and if you don’t like it move on to something else.
