So 2015 is upon us, but before we get stuck into the New Year’s offerings let us cast our eye back on 2014. This year I tried to be a bit more selective about what I was watching and tried to drop more things I wasn’t enjoying…..however that may not have worked out too well since I somehow managed to finish 60 TV series this year.
Overall my impression of 2014 is that it wasn’t a particularly wonderful year for anime. There are a few gems in there, but there was an awful lot of just watchable shows that time will forget quickly enough. Overall the year was just average, but as I said, there were some absolute gems mixed in there, so my top 10 wasn’t too hard to pick. Not many shows will be threatening my T0p 50 though (which I’m going to have to rework again soon).
For this list I take into consideration any show that finished its run in 2014, regardless of when it started – so a lot of those excellent Autumn series won’t be elligible since they’re carrying on into 2015. As usual my top 10 picks from the years OVAs/Movies/Specials will be in a separate post.
