I take recommendations very, very seriously. One of my biggest goals as a blogger is to hopefully introduce people to new shows and experiences that they may enjoy. I’ve done a lot of recommendations in places such as Anime-Suki’s recommendation board (the only board I even use there) the Anime-Planet recommendation database, and to hundreds of people on forums, through AIM, through request, etc. And in return, I’ve also asked for many recommendations and learned about countless shows through recommendations – which is part of the reason I know so many shows. I think that with every recommendation given comes a little bit of weight, and it’s up to the recommendee to carry that weight.
There are plenty of anime that I’m sure you know about which everyone likes, and you’d probably suck ass for not seeing. However, there are also a number of shows that no one has seen, thereby making everyone suck ass. This is my top 20 list. If you’ve seen them, give yourself a pat on the back, you kick the ass of everyone else. I am hoping that people will use this post as sort of a kind of guide. Next time you are looking for something to watch, come to this list.
