I haven't come across many great plot twists in anime yet, so I wonder where they are hiding.

Remember spoiler tag.

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 comes to mind. I expect most of the audience figures it out sometime before it is finally revealed on screen, at which point you say or think, "Oh........<expletive>" and begin re-thinking previous events.

Episode 10 of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, the secret origin of Homura Akemi. It reveals the real plot of the series, and puts everything that happened before into a new perspective. It even explains the opening theme. Also, in episode 8, we find out that

Although I wouldn't call it "best", I'd certainly call it memorable.

In episodes 16-17 of Re:Zero, Subaru has been confronted with a seemingly hopeless situation. Still, he puts together an effort to try to deal with it. Then, in a surprise plot twist, the situation becomes much worse.


Also, Stage 22 of Code Geass, in which

Now that I think of it, I don't really like plot twists...

That said, probably episode 1 of School Live.

How do you not like plot twists?

I love plot twists.

I've been so into plot twists ever since I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone when I was like 8. Probably the one defining experience of my childhood.

That and being in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat like three different times. Which... doesn't really have plot twists. Reversals, but no twists.

That arc was indeed a huge surprise. Just another thing that Monogatari did right.
