Okay, so I was watching the first episode of Kyoukai no Kanata, aka Beyond the Boundary, and this random question just popped into my head... What are your top 5 favorite KyoAni series?

I know this is probably really random, but why the heck not, right?! lol

Personally, I don't mind KyoAni and I actually love their animation and even designs, even though they can be a bit to moe for my taste ^^"

If you don't like KyoAni, then that's fine, just don't start any flame wars guys...it's really unnecessary and if there are any they will be reported to a moderator. Feel free to say why you don't like KyoAni's stuff and why, just do it in a friendly matter and we won't have any problems :)

Just post your top 5 picks, in order, and give a little description on why you like them so much. If you'd like, you can also post KyoAni series that ended up not being your favorite or you disliked and say why you didn't like it.

Pretty simple Have at it and have fun!!! :D



As for my top 5 (in order):

1) Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club - Great water animation, memorable characters, simple/not overly complex storyline, well composed OP/ED/OST, steady pacing, fanservice for girls for once, etc. Everything is pretty much perfect about this series, with the exception of a couple of flaws that I can easily overlook.
2) Kyoukai no Kanata (Beyond the Boundary) - There are very few episodes out, and I can already tell that this KyoAni series will be amazing.
3) Hyouka - I haven't finished watching this one yet, but like with Kyoukai no Kanata, I can already tell that this one will be great. I like the mystery aspect of it and it just has a great atmosphere to it when I'm watching each episode.
4) Clannad/Clannad: After Story - My main reason for liking this one........it is one emotional roller coaster ride. I cried so much during this series and it was just a great love story, both seasons of it.
5) Air/Kanon(2006) - I couldn't decide between these two, so I just made them a tie for 5th place. Like with Clannad, they were emotional series that make you shed many tears. Beautiful stories and atmosphere.

KyoAni Series I did not particularly like:

1) K-On! - I was just really bored when watching this one. Sure, the characters were cute and they did do cute things........but that's all they did. They sat around their club room and drank tea, ate sweets, and went home for the day....that's all they did. What really annoyed me about this series, though, was that it's a series about a light music club who start a band so they could make music................but they rarely ever performed or even played music!. They maybe only did 4 songs and two of them were the OP and ED songs. I won't even touch the second season.
2) The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - There was so much hype over this series and it has become pretty famous and well known in the anime world. However, I only found it average and what ruined it the most to me was Haruhi. She was just sooooooo annoying and I couldn't stand her. The only respectable thing about her was her view on life, that life shouldn't be boring, which I can understand. Other than that, TMOHS didn't do it for me ^^"



The only other KyoAni series I have seen are Lucky Star and Tamako Market




Go ahead and lock this thread if it already exist somewhere else. Thanks!

1/2.) Clannad / Clannad After Story - Serious, yet comedic when it has to be, very much like the VN it's named after (which I got 100% on :3) and also the first/so far only DVD I own in person. I wrote an entire review on after story:



3.) The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - Amazing anime overall, and definitely one worth rewatching (I suggest first time broadcast order and second time chronological, as it's purposely mixed up in broadcast :D) That OP gets me every time, and episode 1, as strange as it was, had me laughing the entire time.. Also

4.) Lucky Star - I love the references made about Haruhi Suzumiya hidden in this anime. Didn't notice there were about 5 of them in my Wall Scroll until recently :3 Lucky star is a pretty funny Slice of Life anime, but is rather slow-paced and might not be for everyone.. it definitely was for me though.



5.) K-On! - Haven't watched it yet, but it's next on my list of anime to watch.

1) Clannad
2) Nichijou
3) Free!

No offense but most Kyo-Ani shows (not counting FMP, Haruhi, and Chuunibyou cause i haven't seen them) bore me. Gorgeous artwork and animation, great soundtracks but not much else.

1.Lucky Star - Highly rewatchable, hilarious, cute and light-hearted (with great references)
2.K-On! - Possibly the apex of moe (or the height of the moe era)
3.The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - Fascinating premise, great executation, very memorable characters (voices and protrayls)
4.Chuunibyou- Very cute, but dealing with some important issues. Also very funny and romantic without resorting to a harem
5.Nichijou - Probably in the the top 5 funniest series i've ever seen.

With honorable mentions to Tamako Market, and that one harem everyone loves (myself included, though not as much).

I've had a solid love-hate relationship with kyo-ani for a while. they'll either release really good things like chuunibyou and the haruhi movie, or they release moeblob shit like tamako market and k-on.

1) Clannad/Clannad After Story (tie)
3) Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
4) Kanon
5) Chuunibyou
