Best Anime of 2018


The Top Ten

1 My Hero Academia Season 3

This is the best anime in general, the animation, music and action as well as the great characters make this show heads and shoulders above any anime of 2018, or in my opinion any anime out there.

It's so GOOD! No questions asked!

Losers can also be heroes... GO LOSERS!

Never felt so good on other anime...but this, Combonation on music and animation is too great

2 Attack on Titan Season 3 Attack on Titan Season 3
3 The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments
4 Tokyo Ghoul:re Tokyo Ghoul:re

Tons of action, unique characters, beautiful artstyle, and a smooth storyline.
Very, Very good. Greatly improved from the second season. - Not_A_Weeaboo

The Contenders

11 High School DXD Hero
12 Darling in the Franxx

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

Darling in the Filthy Franxx - TwilightKitsune

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

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

Definitely recommended

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

14 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

15 Citrus
16 Gintama: Silver Soul Arc
17 Pop Team Epic Pop Team Epic
18 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

19 Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-hen Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-hen
20 Aggretsuko

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

21 The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. 2
22 Yowamushi Pedal: Glory Line
23 Karakai Jouzo no Takagi-san
24 One Piece One Piece One Piece is a manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. The manga has been adapted into an original video animation (OVA) produced by Production I.G in 1998, and an anime series produced by Toei Animation, which began broadcasting in Japan in 1999 and has aired 842 episodes to date.
25 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.

Great show with great aesthetic

This show is AMAZING with storyline and symbolism. kinda reminds me of a 2018 Death Note a little bit. This show has no limits when it comes to how rated r it can get. Just f ing great man
