Top 5 Anime of 2016


In 2016, we saw a plethora of new anime that practically changed the anime/manga community as well as a blossoming of original icons. These new styles are altering the outlook on the Japanese animation that is anime.

How exactly is this a game-changer for anime fanatics? For starters, stereotypes of the fandoms are slowly beginning to diminish, which is some pretty great news considering that fans of anime are often looked upon as “weirdos.” Also, less people are generalizing all anime and manga fans as otakus, who have a deep obsession with anime and live an unhealthy lifestyle because of their deep rooted dedication to anime and video games, or  weaboos, non-asians who dress very colorfully and outlandishly and think they can fit in with other Asians—specifically Japanese, also known as Wapanese or Japanese wannabes.

In this anime lineup, many of these animated television series have won awards and are growing increasingly popular.
