So we’re in the waning hours of 2015, what better time to cast the eye back over the previous years offerings and reminisce about my personal favourites? This year I again attempted to be pretty selective about what I was watching, but since I spent most of the year unemployed I ended up watching more than I thought – I completed 64 TV shows this year!
My general impression of 2015 while compiling this list, is that there were a lot of shows I genuinely enjoyed while watching them, but there aren’t many that have that something extra that makes them particularly memorable. This made selecting a top 10 a bit difficult because so many shows could have potentially made the short-list. In fact a running theme in this years list is that these are shows that were pretty excellent, but had glaring flaws. Still, I’m pretty happy with my final choices – just be aware that the rankings are fairly fluid.
As ever, for this list I take into consideration any show that finished its run in 2015, regardless of when it started – so those carrying over into 2016 won’t be elligible until next year. I’ve also ruled out split-cours shows this year since they’re also continuing on (so no Durarara!! X2 or Concrete Revolutio). As usual my top 10 picks from the years OVAs/Movies/Specials will be in a separate post.
Let’s get started!
