Here is a list of my favourite animes, given a somewhat arbitrary rating that can’t really be dissected in any meaningful way, but are nonetheless ordered based on how much I like and would recommend them. Bear in mind that I like to think of anime as art, not entertainment.
This list is subject to change at any time.
