Anime of Tomorrow
Tag Archives: Daybreak Illusion
It’s that time again. It’s time for me to reveal just how much I disagreed (and to some extent agreed) with the greater anime community over the past four seasons. This year I decided to do the most comprehensive list of my top anime of the year I’ve ever undertaken and to hype up the suspense I’m going to count down from twenty-five in five anime increments. It’s going to be a journey that I anticipate will be controversial, but as I constantly remind my readers, I’m here to represent my own tastes in anime because I’ve not found another critic who will even come close to agreeing with me. And so I start with the bottom five of my top twenty-five of 2013.
Any magic girl anime that avoids the common pitfalls those types of shows are prone to is ok in my book. It also has a fresh art style and enough darkness to give its story some real edge so you can feel for the characters.
