My Top Anime for 2006: Final Version

Standard

Happy New Year everyone!

I found making this list quite difficult…The top five was easy, but listing the rest was quite a recall exercise lol. There were shows I thought didn’t belong in 2006 but did–so I had to do some research. This is my punishment for watching too many shows. I also didn’t bother to look up my ratings on the shows I wrote a review on, as I didn’t give some shows ratings. Another thing is that I decided to include the good shows but still haven’t finished. They are just inserted where they might have been ranked had they ended. As for my unfinished backlog they’ll just get inserted whenever I finish them. Now on to the list.

Looking back: Some School Rumble Love

Standard

Last night I was wondering what to choose between Honey & Clover II and Kannazuki no Miko for my next rewatch. Then I remembered School Rumble, and I thought, well, I certainly need something to smile about.

In retrospect, the first half of SR (season 1) episode 1 never really gave a hint about how wacky it would become later on. I haven’t really watched that much comedy anime with a high school setting at that time (and even now), so I guess I can’t really judge whether it was unique or not. Back then I also knew very few Japanese words, and I thought that Tenma was the younger sister because she was so immature. (That also meant I wasn’t that attentive to the details. But I’m usually like that anyway.)
