A ongoing list of (Japanese) anime I have seen

To try out this new blogging tool, I just decide to make an attempt to list all the anime I have watched.

1 What are the rules?

If there are multiple sequel, only the first season's year would be recorded here. There order has no particular meaning.1 Some are TV anime but some are OVA. Only anime I managed to finish watching would be listed here. Sometimes I would reference the original comic or novels but that doesn't mean I have finishes read original works.

Recent years there starts to be a popular trend to have mini anime that are only about 10 minutes long2, for certain considerations they are not listed here.


This list is still work in progress. Some of the anime I have watched long ago are not yet put on this list, because I need the effort to remember them.

2 As of year 2022

Title Year Description
FLCL 2000 FLCL? What is that? It means probably XXOO. Haruko is so far still my favorite heroine. I have also watched the sequel around 2018, among "Progressive" and "Alternative" I like "Alternative" better.
Kill Me Baby 2012 Teenage High School Ninja Girl~ For the reason that 高部あい was arrested for drug abuse, there will be no sequel. The OST uses lots of synth.
電波女と青春男 2011 I really like the theme song. Do you also believe you are Uchuujin?
機巧少女は傷つかない 2013 What all I could remember is that the machine dolls are erotic. The ending song is also very impressive.
東京喰種 2014 The story behind the anime how the author gets better from suffering depression. I had skipped something, as the anime series was not able to fully reflect the manga.
HUNTER x HUNTER 2011 I watched the new TV anime series. I'm too impressed by Machi's breast. (If you know which scene I'm talking about, lol.)
新世紀エヴァンゲリオン 1995 Fly me to the moon, and let me play among the stars~
Mobile Suit Gundam SEED 2005 My generation's first Gundam anime. My pseudo name Jair is from a mis-translation of KiraYamato.
機動戦士ガンダムUC 2010 Younger people's first Gundam anime. Made by New Gundum Father, lol.
これはゾンビですか? 2012 It is very interesting that each episode there would be a different voice actor for Eucliwood (in imagination). And Haruna doesn't wear bra, lol.
いぬかみっ! 2006 新日暮里!! For the strange taste of author there are tons of naked muscling men in this anime. To be honest the ending song was the only reason I watched it.
甘城ブリリアントパーク 2014 I guess you might be more familiar with Moffle from Full Metal Panic! series.
戦闘員、派遣します! 2021 This is the anime about robot, I promise! I love this better than KoNoSuBa.
健全ロボダイミダラー 2014 Yet another robotic anime. All the penguins have their front tails. That is the theme of this anime.
Zombie Land Saga 2018 I don't usually watch idol themed anime, but this one is an exception to me. The music is really good.
聖痕のクェイサー 2012 This is where I learn about Russian culture. ;D Actually I have read a novel about Hydrogen element Qwaser.
這いよれ!ニャル子さん 2009 Young people's first Cthulhu anime. Sanji pinchi Sanji pinchi...
灼眼のシャナ 2005 This is the first light novel I have read. Who don't love a tsudere loli? By the way Costume Party is from this anime. And for a long period when I was using Android phone Shana is my wallpaper.
犬とハサミは使いよう 2013 This is so called meta writing, writing about writing. The editor is notably an impressive pathetic M.
ReLIFE 2016 When I watched this I am already 22, feels lots of resonate with the story. But I was too into NTR fascination when watching this. Can I still be saved?
BURN THE WITCH 2022 A very impressive OVA that I would think it is a TRIGGER anime but it is not. There is witch but nothing was burnt.
QUALIDEA CODE 2016 TenkawaMaihime is that cute that I set her as my iPhone XR wallpaper. The setting is good but there are some problem with the executing of this anime project.
Angel Beats! 2010 I have played the first part of the galgame but the second part was never announced! It is the wallpaper when I was still using a cell phone with buttons. While it my seems the time seems to be convoluted the fact is I was still using that kind of phone around 2012.
未来日記 2011 Best waifu is the yandere waifu? The comic was much earlier than the production of anime I think.
俺、ツインテールになります。 2014 Crossing dressing magical boys? Yes!
撲殺天使ドクロちゃん 2005 One of the depraved magical girl trilogy. Pipirupirupurupipirupi~
大魔法峠 2006 One of the depraved magical girl trilogy. Among one of the delinquent girls looks really like Yuuka from Touhou Project.
ナースウィッチ小麦ちゃんマジカルて 2002 One of the depraved magical girl trilogy. The original The Soul Taker was so infamous that this OVA looks strange.
断裁分離のクライムエッジ 2013 I think I have erotic fetishism to long hair after I watched this. And I do have thinning shears.
High Score Girl 2018 I don't play that much arcade games, but I was a fans of KOF.
Hellsing 2001 I think I would recommend to watch the remake OVA instead. Very cute vampire girl.
No Surface Moon 2001 I strongly feel that this is a cult movie.
Chobits 2002 First anime DVD that I have purchased. Which weirdo put the switch to that place?
現実主義勇者王国再建記 2021 Talking about politics may be a little bit naive. Overall I do like the feeling of it.
ケメコデラックス! 2008 I kinda like the EVA reference in manga.
魔法少女 俺 2018 I thought, it is a reference to MAGI for some reason. I was not able to finish MAGI by the way.
輪るピングドラム 2011 The topic is very heavy, and I made large effort to understand it. My favorite song is Rock Over Japan.
人類は衰退しました 2012 Regardless of the harmless appearing, I think this is kind of dark fantasy type and somewhat erotic.
棺姫のチャイカ 2014 Not very impressive except the dragon girl bites fish head has become a meme. Besides, when I was young I think using a coffin as weapon is very cool. There was a child fantasy book I have read that the protagonist uses his grandfather's coffin which is made of large chunks of hardest Titian's scale which is also one of the most rare kind of ores.
KILL la KILL 2013 A very classical TRIGGER anime. How about joining nudist beach?
ISLAND 2018 I love the story so much that I brought the orginal game. It is a good game if you don't just think this as if just about dating girls.
富豪刑事 Balance:UNLIMITED 2020 Something that you would actually expect in TV drama.
Ajin 2016 Using only 3D models doesn't make this a bad anime. In fact I really like the style of it.
BEATLESS 2018 One of the best science fiction I like, and it is about boy meets machine girl. Do you know there is an ero game called AIDeal which is almost the same in the story?
Baccano! 2007 The author just made up the name which no meaning. It is about a bottle of wine that gives people eternal life.
DARKER THAN BLACK 2007 What is your special ability? This is one of those anime that have white hair girls.
In/Spectre 2020 I am a big fan of Katawa Shoujo.
無能なナナ 2020 It is the anti-stereotype type of anime. Many was offended because who they thought would be the hero just died in the first episode.
ああっ女神さまっ 1993 This is the OVA version, I like it better that the later TV series because it was made as Celluloid anime.
ぱにぽにだっしゅ! 2005 It is too complex to comprehend, even with annotations.
ぬらりひょんの孫 2010 Recommended by a classmate during middle school, but I have only watch it at much later time.
ラーメン大好き小泉さん 2018 There was many food themed anime that time. I'm not sure if there is a movie related to this one.
俺の脳内選択肢が、学園ラブコメを全力で邪魔している 2013 So far the longest title in this list. All of the three girls have their charming points. The "IF" story at the end of every episode makes think that I'm glad I was not forced to do any pervert things.
彼女がフラグをおられたら 2013 Very straightforward to understand, and at episode 13 some very weird development happened.
NOGAME NOLIFE 2017 Candy like color, and the music was impressive.
天元突破グレンラガン 2007 Although it was very famous, I have only watched it after seen lots of reference in a game.
賭ケグルイ 2017 It is very interesting to see the deformed faces portrayed in this anime.
THE UNLIMITED -兵部京介- 2013 The setting was from a very old series about ESP girls, but this dark side story makes the orginal setting much better.
世界最高の暗殺者、異世界貴族に転生する 2021 An example of fine anime production of around that time. I do like a little sister like elder relative chara.
CROSS ANGE 2014 Sunrise robot anime, which rarely features a heroine. Many says she is just like daughter of Kira from Gundam SEED. The story development got wild soon.
さんかれあ 2012 Zombie themed love story. Such a sorrow mood that would be rarely found on animation made after that time period.
SPEED GRAPHER 2005 It is too hard to refuse admitting that this is more irony than a proper story. If you think about it what they've did are pointless but this doesn't mean it is not worth doing so.
Lycoris Recoil 2022 In certain ways its story is underdeveloped, but isn't is nice to watch special agents in JK? There are so much nice thing we haven't ever noticed, but shouldn't we just get started to make our own choices?
私がモテないのはどう考えてもお前らが悪い! 2012 "君がいた夏は 遠い夢の中 空に消えてった 打ち上げ花火" I heard this song first time from this anime, in the most despair setting.
よふかしのうた 2022 Wondering at the night, the miserable vampire. There are not much easy
お兄ちゃんのことなんかぜんぜん好きじゃないんだからねっ!! 2011 A even longer title. The style is like MARIA HOLIC to me. My preference is an older sisters who pretends to be younger.
Maria†Holic 2009 The most interesting cross dressing themed manga I have seen. The theme song was impressive to me.
Black Bullet 2014 I have heard the opening song long times ago, but only watched the anime very lately. A good quality one with all the lolis of the 10's, although the original novel discontinued with no news. Rumors is that the author earned enough from investment to decide quit the job. Comparing that to something who wrote about economy and trading but failed in investment, well...
Black Rock Shooter 2010 I always thought Hatsune Miku Project DIVA has a BRS outfit, seems I remembered it wrong as I found neither in Future Tone or MEGA 39's.
黒執事 2008 Yes, my lord.
東京ESP 2014 ESP themed stories never gets old! In fact that would be the only reason I watched this.
ベン·トー 2011 One of the ordinary life theme topic in very interesting narration. These days I always eat the sushi set from supermarket, and reminds me of this one.
上野さんは不器用 2019 It is just too strange to watching this!
Kill la Kill 2013 A TRIGGER production. It is just so good in every aspect. The theme of clothing is also worth to think about.
OVERLORD 2015 One of the very unique of its type, the orginal novel is excellent, while the anime merely meets the expectation of a picky reader.
だがしかし 2016 A very good introduction to the ordinary snacks avaliable in Japan.
GOSICK 2011 It is only until lately I realized the title actually means Gothic. It gives a very different presention of the orginal novel.
ガンダムGのレコンギスタ 2014 This one is so good that I cannot avid praise it. Although it is still a Gundam selling anime, there is a lot previous Gundam series reference in it. And I just love how a types of detailed filled in that gives the real life feeling.
機動戦士ガンダム THE ORIGIN 前夜 赤い彗星 2019 The story of 赤い彗星 was too familiar to me that it is so exciting to see this story been retell. シャア・アズナブル is the most famous masked character in GUNDAM series.
六畳間の侵略者!? 2014 I heard that the Chinese translation is way better than the original novel.
ロクでなし魔術講師と禁忌教典 2017 Very classic story with a solid character design. It is frequent to see the type of story that a strong warrior decides to do some different job while retired in a young age. However what is special here is the young warrior is not the talent but someone who is clever enough to work out his weekness.
紅殻のパンドラ 2016 A very charming android and girl anime. I would say it is almost magical girl in science fiction setting. The original character design was done by 士郎正宗 who is the author of Ghost in the Shell. Actually the story happened long before Ghost in the Shell.
アサシンズプライド 2019 Despite the title suggested assassin, the theme is not very related to it, it is more like homeschooling teacher. The setting is interesting as the story happens in a world completely without daylight. Story is depressing enough that I would not even surprise if bad end happens.
アスタロッテおもちゃ! 2011 Well I'm also 23 when watched this so I had strange feelings that I'm too old now. The anime has many original plots, and a proper ending due to the limitation of span, so I strongly recommend you to also read the original manga. Did I say ロッテ is featured by 釘宮理惠?
Plastic Memories 2015 I have almost forget about this but the FLAC archive on my computer has reminded me to write about this. I was fascinated by all kinds of robotic girl romance anime and this is one of them that use the destined loss of memory as a theme.
GREAT PRETENDER 2020 It is not surprise to me that the ending song has been streamed on aNONradio. Recent years there are many Netflix founded anime, usually two seasons with a complete story line, and most of them are of good quality to me.
転生したら剣でした 2022 Who can resist cat girl? I'm surprised that it is so long until I find this type of story about protect and train someone.

3 2023

Since the list has been grown big, I think it starts to be a good idea to split the list by years of writing. That does not mean I would not revise any old entries, it is just such separation makes my editing work easier.

Title Year Description
Chainsaw Man 2022 The original manga was too famous to be taken to compare with the animation. Overall I still enjoy the feeling to have the voice as an addition. I quite like some of the ending songs (each episode gets an unique ending song).
ゆるキャン△ 2018 There are many anime productions focusing on touring. Camping is one fantastic topic. Unfortunately it is not likely that I will visit there any soon. Nadeshiko is right the type of girl that I like.
Witch Craft Works 2014 It was the very refreshing gender bending type of story to me. Who doesn't like a girlfriend that is reliable.
食戟のソーマ 2015 Cooking, especially food culture in Japan, makes this series enjoyable to watch. One of the authors is specialized in cooking that makes the plot much realistic than say, 中華一番!.
異世界美少女受肉おじさんと 2022 Another gender change theme fantasy story I have watched. For some reason we just associate this with a snack bar brand because of the shark mascot's teeth.
Bochii the rock 2022 It is the first time I enjoyed high school girls and band theme. Now, 下北 has become a more famous place.
Another 2012 One of the very rare non-light novel works. Warning, there is super natural power inside.
アクダマドライブ 2020 A cyberpunk flavor dystopia crime motif drama that has a very intense plot. I call it cyberpunk because the stage is set in post third world war Japan.
COP CRAFT 2019 The first thing I noticed is the deluxe use of light effects. Also the opening theme song gives me a 90's city pop feeling. The theme of alien city, police, feels nostalgic. Were you also confused why he only wears mask at home? Meanwhile, you may have notices several production quality drops in some episode, but the overall story is still making it worth watching.
えびてん 2012 It is recognizable to me only because the character design is make by the same artist who made illustration for へきようがくえんせいとかいぎじろく.
Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt 2010 Almost legendary.
