This isn't just the best anime of 2016, it's the best anime ever! - Solacress

This anime is the best

Love the characters, love the story, love the action-scenes, love the feels; I pretty much love the anime in general! Another thumbs-up to Funimation!


2 Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress
3 Kiznaiver Kiznaiver

It's made by the same studio that produced Kill la Kill. I have to finish The Irregular at Magic High School and Puella Magi Madoka Magica first, but when I do, I can't wait to see how this anime turns out. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

4 Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu Re:Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu

Easily the best isekai ever made

5 Bungou Stray Dogs Bungou Stray Dogs

The second season is better than the first, eapecially the Dark Era part. - Goku02

6 Twin Star Exorcists

I saw quiet a lot of this(when Benio and Rokuro are 14 in the show)on Animax and It was great! - MLPFan

7 Magi: Sinbad No Bouken
8 Mob Psycho 100 Mob Psycho 100
9 Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi
10 Hundred

The Contenders

11 Nanbaka Nanbaka Nanbaka, also known as Nanbaka - The Numbers, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Shō Futamata.
12 The Lost Village
13 Yuri!!! On Ice
14 KonoSuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World! KonoSuba: God's Blessing on This Wonderful World!
15 Ajin: Demi-Human Ajin: Demi-Human
16 Flip Flappers

I've heard a lot of people trash this anime, but I personally loved it! I love the bright, captivating visuals; the kick-ass action-sequences; the great characters; & its unique visual story-telling method. While a decent amount of anime spend more time than necessary explaining the gimmicks of their worlds & not enough actually demonstrating them (cough-cough-"Irregular at Magic High School" enrollment arc-cough), this anime only has about 15 collective minutes of the entire series spent explaining the details of the Flip-Flap organization & worlds of Pure Illusion, focusing more on showing us exactly what we're in for. This colorful, lovably odd series is definitely worth of this list.

17 Tales of Zestiria the X

I always hoped this or its prequel, "Tales of Berseria," would be made into an anime. So when I learned they made one COMBINING the two, I was ecstatic! It didn't disappoint, either! Watching the immersive stories I loved playing through turned into an anime I could spend time just binge-watching without worrying about whether or not I remembered to save before some major battle is always fun for me. Extra thumbs up for the two amazing openings!
