Outside of the animation style, I didn't really find Kill la Kill to be that much like TTGL at all. That being said, I felt like TTGL "lived up to the hype" better. 👀

11. Made in Abyss

@FL81

Unfortunately, Crybaby gets to beat this as the newest anime up top, but I do definitely like this one more. MIA started out as a bit of a slow burn for me. I did like it at first, mainly for Riko’s amazing curiosity and the fantastic art design/music, but it doesn’t get great until the expedition to the Abyss begins in earnest (namely when they meet Ozen). After that I was all-in. MIA is probably better than anything I’ve seen at giving the setting itself a personality. The Abyss feels almost like a character. You get to know it throughout the series, and you’re always thinking about its presence. Settings usually aren’t that big a deal to me. They exist to facilitate good development or action or whatever, and a cool setting is obviously a plus, but it’s not something I’d generally think of as a main draw. MIA is one of the only exceptions (along with the Xenoblade series). I’m always curious to learn more about the nature of the Abyss, and it was generally my main reason for watching the show. No matter what else was going on, I always wanted to know more about it. I’ll probably read the manga whenever that finishes, even if more anime is coming, just to learn more about the Abyss itself.

But of course, if that was all the series had going for it, I wouldn’t have it ranked this high. The animation and art design are top tier from start to finish. There’s so much detail everywhere. IT really brings the Abyss to life. The music is great and also unique. It’s neat that they got a non-Japanese composer who still composes somewhat anime-style music. It uses music in the way I like anime using music, but with a fresh sound. And of course, the characters are what draw us in the most in general. Riko’s spirit and curious personality are awesome. I’d be happy watching her do fun stuff all her life. It does stretch credulity sometimes that a powerless girl like her can survive the descent into the Abyss, but she does run into her fair share of difficulties, so that helps a bit. Reg isn’t as interesting as the rest of the cast, and it’s unfortunate how the series seems to focus on him over Riko more as time goes on, but his Mega Man powers are fun and he’s almost more a weapon than a character. Nanachi steals the show despite only being in a few episodes, and Ozen is amazing. I love her design and voice acting so much. She feels so intimidating! Lyza’s great in all her flashbacks too.

The last few episodes were my favorite part of the show. They’re full of amazing animation, and Nanachi’s story is super heartbreaking. It’s incredible how much the show made me care about Mitty. It also made me anxious for the next season, though. While Bondrewd managed to create some good drama, he’s also pretty incredibly despicable. The next arc seems like it’ll focus on him (I think this is what the movie’s going to be about…?) and it feels like it could be too much. I dunno. Hopefully it works out, because MIA at its finest is peak anime.
All the stars in the sky are waiting for you.
