The Contenders

11 Darling in the Franxx

Just finished watching it yesterday, the last episode made me cry it was so heartwarming.

My friend Rue told me about this anime on Twitter. It just aired its first episode yesterday on Crunchyroll and Funimation. It's a mecha anime with Studio Trigger and A-1 Pictures collaborating together on this project. Hopefully, this'll turn out good. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

12 Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online

They've just confirmed that it'll be airing in April of 2018. Can't wait to see what the spin-off has in store. Hopefully, it won't be a Netflix exclusive like the Fate series has been doing recently with its latest anime adaptations... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Second update: Can't wait to see the first episode premiere tomorrow this Saturday! That is, unless Crunchyroll delegates it to premium status... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Just a bit of a news update, the GGO Alternative just got its official website launched. Can't wait to see what it has in store. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

13 Violet Evergarden Violet Evergarden Violet Evergarden is a Japanese light novel series written by Kana Akatsuki and illustrated by Akiko Takase.

Beautiful anime, one of my favourites and definitely one my top ten!

14 High School DXD Hero
15 Citrus
16 Fate/Extra Last Encore

I have high expectations for this next Fate installment! Only one concern: PLEASE DON'T LET IT BE EXCLUSIVE TO NETFLIX. I WANT IT TO BE ON CRUNCHYROLL SO I CAN STREAM IT FOR FREE. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

17 Pop Team Epic Pop Team Epic
18 Gintama: Silver Soul Arc
19 Aggretsuko

The animation really reminded me of "Pucca," my childhood cartoon. - Not_A_Weeaboo

20 Devilman Crybaby

Genuinely a brilliant show. Many of the characters in this show are likable, and encourage you to root for them. Others (specifically one which I won't spoil) become despicable as the show moves on. The animation pieces, though sometimes unethical, are completely balls-to-the-wall awesome! The OP is fantastic, the story is engaging; honestly, this show is the complete package for me. If you enjoy torture-porn anime and manga, that is actually that way for a reason, check this show out. It's one of the original manga series' greatest adaptations, if not its best.
(*GRAMMATICAL) - MasonOcker
