Just a simple list of my 50 favorite anime. I don't have the energy or skill to actually write reviews for any of them, but I do write some background info and the summary so that anybody reading my list will still get a general idea of what to watch. I update my list whenever I watch a new anime that I think belongs on here.

This is a pretty good list. My favorite anime would have to be Madoka Magica, but AnoHana is also a really good show. I also especially like how it is set up, very easy to navigate.
