Pick a favorite series/movie for each letter of the alphabet. For titles starting with “a” “an” or “the” use the first letter of the next word of the title.
Since many titles have multiple names based on the language that you are using please pick one language for the entire list (Use all English titles or all Japanese titles) and let the readers know which language you will be using. If a title has the same name regardless of the language then it can be used in any list.
If you don’t have a title that fits under a particular letter, you can name another favorite from a different letter in its place, just indicate which letter spot you are using for that series. This can be done up to three times. If you can’t fill a spot then you can leave it blank. No more than 26 total series are allowed.
Including a picture for each series is encouraged.

Just have fun with this challenge. I wanted to get everyone to share some favorite series and to spread the word about awesome blogs!
I’m sorry, but I’m going to cheat and use English and Japanese titles. >< I have two reasons. 1) I use English titles for certain anime and Japanese titles for other anime. I don’t have a rule for this. For example, Zankyou no Terror has always been Zankyou no Terror for me.
2) I don’t have a lot of favourite titles. If I stick with one language, I don’t think I can still call them my favourite anime.
Anyway, this is my blog so I don’t think rules matter that much. ❤
I will also write my 2nd and 3rd picks for some letters!
Since I will be writing my runner-ups, I don’t think I need to do Rule #3 (another rule I’m breaking, hahaha).
I can fill out all the letters (i.e. put down xxxHolic for X) but I don’t know if I can call them my favourites…
Some people think that I like wholesome shows or shows from the shojo genre. My university’s anime club held a shojo trivia game and I wasn’t very helpful… Sure, I’ve watched shows from every genre but I didn’t know the majority of the answers.
So then… what kind of shows do I like? Well… I wouldn’t exactly classify them as ‘wholesome.’
From top to bottom: Parasyte, Death Note, Attack on Titan, Kaiji, and Zankyou no Terror. I also like Attack on Titan and Inuyashiki.
So what does this all mean? What do my anime preferences say about me as a person?
Absolutely nothing at all, except that I like interesting anime. Hahaha.
I’ve blogged about experiencing “the void” after completing Zankyou no Terror. The anime left me heartbroken for a couple of weeks.
Now I’m feeling something else. I listened to one of the songs from the Zankyou no Terror soundtrack and all the feelings resurfaced. I think I’m making this sound more dramatic than it actually is, but I really miss this series. I wish I could wipe all of my memories of the show so that I could watch it again with a blank slate.
I might rewatch this series. I wonder if my thoughts of the show will change the second time around. I wonder if my heart will get ripped apart again. Again, I am making this sound more dramatic than it actually is… Zankyou no Terror fits with my tastes in shows perfectly.
Unrelated, but I love the sky. I wish I could fly freely like a bird.
I recently finished watching the anime, Zankyou no Terror, and I felt kind of empty, like I didn’t know what to do with myself afterwards. So I went to Google and found out it’s a thing called ‘post-series depression.’ To be honest, I don’t feel completely comfortable with the word ‘depression’ in there because I feel like it kind of minimizes depression.
I think that this void I’m feeling is a common feeling and I think it will go away with time. I guess when you find an anime or any series that meshes with your tastes perfectly, you are reluctant to start another show. You need time to process the show and this feeling. Zankyou no Terror is only 11 episodes and I did binge most of it so I was only able to experience it for such a short time. Perhaps it is a deep appreciation towards a series that ended too soon.
I’m not sure often this feeling is talked about within the anime blogging community, or how often people feel this. Have you experienced this or something similar? If you feel comfortable sharing, let me know in the comments!
