We’ve made it to Day 29 and we’re looking for my highest rated anime. This is going to be tricky given I do not actually use a rating system of any description. Still, if I narrow down my options by eliminating anime I know aren’t particularly well animated or well written but I just enjoy because they are fun… then I just need to eliminate all of the stories that are pretty much cookie cutter copies of every other story… narrowing it down. What about eliminating any story that has a character that just makes me face palm every time they appear on screen…
And I’ve got it!
Okay, I already know people are going to disagree with this choice but that’s okay given this is my choice.
I’m going to go with: March Comes in Like a Lion.
I was seriously tempted to go with Evangelion but to be honest, the convoluted story line and the symbolism that just goes a bit crazy at times kind of killed it. March Comes in Like a Lion is:
- Beautiful to look at.
- Filled with complex and fairly interesting characters.
- Has a basic plot but is character driven.
- Combines music and visuals beautifully to set the tone for the show.
- Has a fairly strong emotional impact on the audience.
- And is still kind of fun to watch.
I’d love to know your highest rated anime so please leave a comment below. We’re almost at the end of the challenge and I am almost back to start doing seasonal reviewing again.
