I Am Anime (And So Can You! [Part 2])

So last time I recommended some anime that I thought would be good for entry-level viewers, which was fine and all, but I kept trying to work in some of my favorites.

Once again, this by no means me being some “anime-expert” bestowing my wisdom on plebian viewers (if someone ever claims to be that it’s OK to just ignore anything they say next), just a list of what I like, because I like it when people like things that I like.

Some are “entry-level” type shows that newer fans seem to flock to, while others are just personal favorites that I think would work similarly. So here are five recommendations, I’ll post a part 2 sometime in the near future.
