Pick Of The Season
Outbreak Company

Pick of the Year
My overall pick is a very difficult decision. Out of the four seasonal picks, each has its own charm. Outbreak Company is an exceptional lighthearted comedy. Kimi no Iru Machi is an excellent Drama. Henneko is a great supernatural comedy. All of these shows are definite watches.

One that I keep coming back to as a pick for the whole year would have to be Kotora-san. It just edges its way above the rest with its sweet humor, loving style, and heart wrenching character building. Yet it still keeps the story light. There is no way to truly do Kotora-san justice with words. I suggest watching it if you haven’t and see for yourself.
