2008 in Review: Picks of 2008

2008 in Review

Another year passes. Man, it’s hard to believe I’m already in to my 9th year of being an otaku as well as my 4th year of blogging. Time sure flies. I’m now well over 1500 posts with nearly 16k comments, and it’s thanks to everyone’s support that I’ve gotten so far.

This year was marked by an increased number of good shows, but surprisingly, it wasn’t as “happening” as last year. To put it in another way, while the average increased, the top end of the bell curve wasn’t as high as last year. Nevertheless, this year still had its moments.

My choices here aren’t particularly graded using a strict measure, it’s more of an overall rating of shows of this year that I greatly enjoyed in one way or another, so please view it as that rather than a solid indicator of quality.

Of course, being a mere mortal with a real life outside of the Internet, I will inevitably miss a few gems here and there, so feel free to voice up any other shows that you, my dear reader, believe I should have watched and not missed for this year.

With that said, here’s the list.

Tokyo Tower Rape

Detroit Metal City

Oh fuck. Krauzer-san is fucking awesome. Raping Tokyo Tower to orgasm is no mean feat there. Not to mention he became the father of Roppongi Hills too.

DMC, the best death metal anime ever.

Detroit Metal City is RAPE RAPE RAPE!

Detroit Metal City

Oh god, Detroit Metal City is fucking awesome. To paraphrase the manager’s words, “It’s been a while since I got this wet when watching an anime!”. Well, don’t take that so literally, but you get the idea. God, I nearly bust a gut laughing my ass off the first two episodes.

It’s just so over-the-top madness and hilarity. I haven’t laughed this hard since… Kamen no Meido Guy, I believe. This show highly warrants a must-watch for me now. Fucking hilarious watching Krauzer/Negishi struggle with his real personality and alter ego.
