Yeah. It's only 13 episodes, and super worth watching. I think it got ADTRW AOTY for 2018? Everyone loved it including me.

Actually (and this is not against you or anything; like I totally understand where you're coming from, I'm just using your reply as a springboard boar sorts) I think it's an easy-enough recommendation and the more I think of it, the more I go "Why isn't this considered an entry-gate anime like Bebop or Eva?" because honestly? It awoke some feelings in me that I thought were long snuffed out. Like Little Witch Academia? A Place Further than the Universe? Yona of the Dawn? I love those.

And they're all great (and Taima, if you're still reading for recommendations and want some good entry-level stuff, I cannot amply recommend those three series enough). But SGRS felt like when you hear an artist for the first time and it just clicks. Like when I was a dumb teenager/young adult touring and being broke half-the-time but I found out about Patton Oswalt and hearing the KFC Famous Bowls bit and couldn't stop laughing my rear end off with the rest of Werewolves and Lollipops or when I heard both Deftones and Meshuggah during my stint in music school during my early adolescence and it made me realize that I didn't want to play classical music for a living and the sooner I was done with that, the better.

That's how potent Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju felt for me:

Yeah, not many people watched it, plus it came out at the tail end (fall), alongside zombieland, rascal, ssss.gridman and the like, so it understandably got drowned out and people didn't really start hyping it here until after the final episode aired, at which time there wasn't much time left for the poll or for people to catch up.

I kinda wish we did these end of year polls in March or something to help remove recency bias and give people more time to catch up on series.

imo akanesasu was better than bloom

but i mostly say this because the bloom anime is, all the parts of bloom into you i didn't care about that much and ends immediately before the parts i like

What was it you liked about them specifically?

With no further critera I'm gonna say Devilman Crybaby just because it's really good.

Gonna ask for recommendations too since it's that time of thread and I've been wanting to ask for some. (Also I suggest Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, both dubbed).

I'm just about finished Revolutionary Girl Utena again and I'd love to watch more anime like that, with a lot of surreal imagery and focus on fundamentally broken characters who can achieve some kind of healing. Should I just watch more Ikuhara shows?

The obvious followup would be Ikuhara's other shows, Penguindrum and Sarazanmai. I would also recommend checking out Shōjo Kageki Revue Starlight and Princess Tutu for similarly inspired and surreal shows. Also watch the Revolutionary Girl Utena Movie if you haven't already.

Hinamatsuri is fantastic! I'd recommend the manga as well.

Speaking of which why does it take one peace books so goddamn long to release the translated volumes?

There's a lot of just straight up language puns too that the translators try their best to port over, but really don't work very well half of the time.

I feel like Haibane Renmei might be a great fit based on your criteria. It's only 12 episodes long too.

Iirc theyíre meant to compliment each other since the manga author was in charge of the movie which ends up cutting/truncating a bunch of stuff so it can function as a movie. So both?
