Best Anime 2016

Best Anime 2016

Last year was extremally good for the most of the anime fans so it was pretty easy for us to do a list of the Best Anime 2016. There was at least one worth watching anime for every genre that I can think of. Standard Action, Sci-Fi or Adventure genres were full of great picks so our list could be a little long for some of you. There were even a couple of great anime from strange genres like “cooking” with well produced “Shokugeki No Souma”. We picked up the best anime from each season of 2016, starting with solid picks from winter.

Erased was one of the greatest anime in last year’s winter and it is a must for every time travel fan if you like mystery and psychological animes you will be pleased.

Konosuba is the next great tv series that we recommend. It is very funny fantasy story so any comedy fan should give it a try. AJIN in another hand is a great horror anime so if you enjoy mystery and hardcore action scenes you will be delighted.

In spring we got the next wave of decent anime to watch. We need to mention “Re- zero” with known from another anime like “Sword Art Online” fantasy world. At first glance, you could find it a “next online game tv series” but it is pretty original. Our favorite anime of the spring was “Magi: Adventure of Sindbad” probably because we missed original series Magi so much!

Summer was definitely a time of “Mob Psycho 100” which was made by this same studio that produced one of the greatest anime of all time “One Punch Man” and you can watch is here In that time you could also watch the second season of mentioned earlier cooking series called “Shokugeki no Souma”. For the fans of darker productions, we would recommend “91 Days” in which we could see how hard is a mobster life.

We know that there are a lot of zombie themed anime fans and all of you probably would enjoy anime called “Kabanerii Of The Iron Fortress”. It was produced by Wit Studio which created very popular series “Shingeki no Kyojin” better known as “Attack on Titan”.

End of the year brings us new seasons of AJIN, Bungou Stray Dogs, and HaiKyuu! so if you watched earlier seasons we highly recommend their continuations. “Yuri!!! On Ice” is a sports series that tells a story about a young skater who wants to be the best skater in the world. Lastly, we want to recommend a REALLY GREAT anime called Drifters. It is full of violence and unconventional humor story about a group of heroes that need to fight for a new world that they were transported before death. If you want to see more action packed anime we recommend you to check our Best Action Anime list!

There is our list of the Best anime of 2016, Enjoy!
