The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of the Commandments
The second season of Nanatsu no Taizai definitely deserves the top spot for so many reasons: great epic fight scenes, interesting plot twists, badass opening theme (cough cough it’s HOWLING). Of course, Escanor is one of the reasons, plus the Ten Commandments are seriously addicting to watch on the move but no one beats how awesome our favorite unholy knights are.

The visually stunning and touching story of Violet Evergarden is surely not a thing to miss. It’s one of the anime titles that makes the winter season a heartwarming one devoid of any cold vibes.
Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens
This funny and terribly adorable stories of hitmen/assassins are truly remarkable. It suddenly rise into the top of our list due to its exciting plot twists, effective use of humors, and undeniable chemistry between different characters.
A relaxing anime that truly makes our winter season a wonderful one. Well, what else are we going to look forward than an exciting and refreshing vacation. Laid-Back Camp is such a delightful experience to watch, especially with how simple and casual its story is. No one could ever thought that a camping series could be so good and entertaining as this.
A Place Further than the Universe
Another relaxing and deep anime series from winter 2018. It’s a story of more than just self-discovery, it’s about finding reasons, our very own purpose in life. Why do we travel, why do we try something new in order to experience living life to the fullest.
Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc
For kids of the 90s, this is a big comeback for our favorite girl, Sakura-chan. She’s back with a new story together with the rest of the gang and still the magic of nostalgia is definitely working so good.
The series may had started slow and had some setbacks, but it somehow gain momentum at the latter part and gave us a very satisfying and action-packed wicked finale. Now, shall we look forward for Overlord III which is slated to premiere later this year.
Darling in the FranXX
The biggest surprise but truly deserves all the hyped. After all it’s a masterpiece from A1 Pictures and studio Trigger. If we could describe mecha anime of 2018, Darling in the FranXX is the only synonymous title that comes into our mind.
A very innocent and pure love story, this anime will never fail to bring smile on your face. This anime will give you the feeling of nostalgia, of missing your school days and how awesome it is to be playful with your friends while creating memories that last forever.

After the Rain
With a rather different approach on a love story, After the Rain stand out brilliantly. It shows just how complicated human emotions are and how does it affect people’s lives. The plot is rather controversial and full of symbolism but it’s a realistic story that society tends of ignore and must be address in a positive way.
Drama and yuri blended together, a school anime that brings the shoujo-ai drama into new light. There’s more to this anime than the fanservice lesbian romance and trust me, it’s actually a pretty decent gem.
Such a cute and adorable story to follow. This anime is truly refreshing and makes us experience our childhood once again with interesting funny characters giving life to our childhood fantasies.
Record of the Grancrest War
This maybe your typical average shounen anime with a very ordinary and common plot. However, what’s makes this anime special were its action, devotion to its average story but bringing a rather not typical conclusion to every chapter of its plot.
