Meganime's Top 10 anime of 2018!

Well, after creating our top 5 list and getting stuck debating what our 5th choice would be, we decided that we should have a Top 10 list which can include some of the anime we felt were worthy of inclusion on a top anime list of 2018. If we broke it up by genre it would probably be the top 3 in each category but we decided to go overall on our picks.

#10 Satsuriku No Tenshi (Angels of Death)

Satsuriku no Tenshi (Angels of Death)

This anime was a surprise to us. It followed Rachel, a girl who awakens in a building's basement with very little memory of her past. Based off the video game of the same name Rachel has to advance to each floor after defeating each of the bosses. After meeting Isaac, who she befriends, they work together as a team trying to escape the building, as long as "Zack", as Rachel calls him, promises to kill her when they get out. It kept us tuning in to see who the next boss was that she encountered and how they would defeat them.

#9 Isekai Maō to Shōkan Shōjo no Dorei Majutsu (How NOT to summon a Demon Lord)

Based off of the light novels created by Yukiya Murasaki and illustrated by Takahiro Tsurusaki, and later Naoto Fukuda adapted for manga, How Not to summon a Demon Lord had our two favorite forms of fan service - flat and plot. It followed Takuma Sakamoto, a shut-in gamer ( hikikomori ), who is summoned to the world of his favorite online game by the pantherian Rem and the elf Shera, who planned on making him their servant, but due to a passive magic reflection skill Takuma's character possessed it backfired and made Rem and Shera his slaves. Takuma travels with Rem and Shera to find a way to release them from bondage, along the way they become close friends. This anime had enough fan service to keep up happy and we enjoyed the whole season.

#8 Zombieland Saga

Zombieland Saga

This was another surprise anime. The title had us thinking something completely different. It follows Sakura Minamoto, who aspires to become an idol but her life ends after leaving for school and getting hit by a van, right after walking out of the house. She wakes up 10 years later, brought back by the mysterious man - Kotaro Tatsumi, and to find out she has finally become an idol, unfortunately, like the rest of her bandmates, she is a zombie. After watching the first episode of the idol band trying to do heavy metal, we just had to keep watching. Throughout the season they cleverly cover many genres of music - pop, rap, heavy metal etc. (Although the heavy metal had us laughing out loud). The band consisted of pop stars from different eras of Japan's history and each brought something to the band that made the formula work. The ultimate goal of Kotaro was to use the band to bring tourism to Saga prefecture and put it back on the Japanese map. We enjoyed this anime and the characters as they learned to work together and become an idol band.

#7 Boku no hero academia (My hero academia) Season 3
