If it does get one I’ll be very happy, it’s rare to see an anime that deals with adult romance in a realistic but fun fashion.

Looking through the 62 series I've watched this year and THAT series really is gonna show up a lot in my nominations...

But damn that's like 15 shows a season I'll really have to calm down next year and thankfully I'm only interested in 7 shows next season

Makes me happy seeing someone mention Hoozuki. Most of my picks are from: Hakumei and Mikochi, Saiki Kusuo S2, Golden Kamuy and Asobi Asobase.
I couldn't put anything down for best animated film as there was nothing that really interested me this year.
3-gatsu S1 was the only DVD release I bought this year.

  • Darling in the FranXX ep 13: Zero Two's backstory.
  • Uma Masume: Pretty Derby ep 7: Suzuka's injury was quite a shock.
  • Magical Girl Site ep 11: Had quite a moving event in Yatsumura's death and a bit of a twist after that.
  • Revue Starlight ep 7: Reveal of a twist in the plot.
  • Happy Sugar Life ep 9: Satou kills Shouko 😮
  • Cells at Work ep 7: Who'd thought you could sympathise for cancer!
  • Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny-Girl Senpai ep 6: Really liked the ending of Koga's arc.
  • Golden Kamuy s2 e11: Action packed attack on the prison.
  • ZOMBIE LAND SAGA ep 2: Drop the Mic!

I didn't include comedy shows in my nominations, it didn't really seem fitting? You can't really compare the quality of comedy writing to dramatic writing, they're chalk and cheese. Rest assured, Asobi Asobase would definitely get my vote if it actually does count.
