2014 is finally behind us and I finally have the spare time to write this. There were lots of pretty good anime last year but these are the ones that really stood out in my opinion. So without further ado, here’s the bunch of anime last year that I think are the best of the best.
2015 is just around the corner and it’s probably good to look back at in my opinion the top 3 best anime moments in 2014.
Back then I wrote a post about how Macross could have foresaw the future with the introduction of the concept of a virtual idol, made real today by vocaloids. Slowly but surely everybody even to people outside of the anime community are being made aware of the concept of the virtual idol with Miku Hatsune performing in sold out concerts and just recently, appearing on the Tonight Show with David Letterman.
Tetsuya Nomura, famous for being the character designer of various Square-Enix games such as the ever popular Final Fantasy series, drew Miku Hatsune to look more real which is a step away from Miku’s usual moe appeal. The result was for me was really awesome.
With Miku now looking more human-like, Miku Hatsune is now one step closer to Sharon Apple. Perhaps in the future, everybody around the world would be open to the idea of a virtual songstress just like in Macross Plus.
P.A. Works has its share of misses like the recently aired Glasslip which in my opinion felt very underwheming and boring that I just had to drop it, and they’re looking to bounce back with their offering this season, Shirobako.
Kohina is probably the best doll ever.
I hope I’m not on drugs because THIS IS HYPE!!!
WE ALL LOVE ERO BOOKS, DON’T WE!?
Here’s a new high-school anime from a light novel source… It looks pretty nice!
If there’s anything to say about winter 2013, it was all about the comedy and I think Hoozuki no Reitetsu is one of the best if not the best in winter 2013.
I’ve been an anime fan for as long as I can remember and I was able to relate with a lot of anime characters, but what I think is amazing about anime is that it can move people.
