Looking back, how did you feel about 2016?

I would say it was rather lacklustre in terms of anime. 2017 looks much more promising.

Very solid year. Far as the 2010s go, I would say that it goes 2011 > 2012 > 2014 > 2016 > 2013 > 2015 > 2010.

It was a watchable year.

This year wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. It suffered from something worse - being mediocre. So I would describe it as uninspiring, humdrum, lackluster, forgettable.

A lot of mediocre/average shows, but it had a few that ended up being my all-time favorites.

Best year in anime since 2011.

It wasn't a hyper amazing year but was pretty good all around.

There were a few high profile attempts at making something notable/breakout such as haifuri, kabaneri, flipflappers etc and I applaud that, that at least some studios are trying. Otherwise lots of nice cute shows all over the place like new game, konosuba and shakunetsu, and some high profile shows like BnHA and Jojo part 4.. Brave witches should have been done better and that really pisses me the fuck off but other than that, I really can't complain, people will for sure look back and go "this was a pretty solid year".

Funny that you would make this thread with the best anime of the last two seasons, Saiki-kun.

Re:Zero shook the world 2016 is the best year for anime. No anime has ever done that in the history.

I think it was decent, I don't think any shows were really amazing or wow you must watch this.

They pretty much announced all the good shit for 2017.

People don't give 2011 enough credit.

KLK was never really popular on Sup Forums because it was just overhyped shit.

Boring year.

2015 shows may be an extreme case of hit or miss but I'd rather have that than 2016's safe hype.

William Rogers

It was pretty shit in all honesty. 2015 wasn't amazing by any means but there were a lot more memorable shows, in my opinion.

This year had more airing shows per season but it had the same amount of good shows as last year.
Also there were more memorable shows and more shows for shitposting/creating memes. I like this year on Sup Forums even though some seasons were pretty meh for me show wise.

Everyone's always bitching how the current year sucks and the next one looks better every year and yet I always find quite a lot of shows to enjoy.

Bentley Morris

tfw only about 5 people watched Saiki
Why is it so underrated? I genuinely laughed and had a fun time with it, why didn't you, Sup Forums?

In terms of TV probably the worst year in a long time. There are a few movies I'm interested in though.

Honestly not that good. It was filled with average shows with the occasional gem but it also had a ton of shit. Might just be me getting sick of yet another isekai or harem comedy shows though

Re zero wiped the floor for 2016. It's not the story but the reaction and threads is just awesome, it was a great journey and i havent been excited towards anime in long time

The reaction videos are pretty entertaining

Watching people losing tneir shit is awesome, re zero having most episode ended up in cliffhanger is also awesome

The threads on Sup Forums when it was live / release day is great. Eps 18 have a life changing potential, at least for me
