Holidays allow for a much needed respite, and that means binge watching a whole tone of anime.

Fall 2021 brought a couple of new shows as well as some already established one’s for a second season, this being the second edition of Best of Season I decided to highlight some of the best shows Fall 2021 had to offer. You won’t find semi mediocre shows or the end of barrel show’s like I previously did with my Best of Summer. These are 10 great shows that are totally worth your time, some more underground than others, while some of them stand atop what the anime industry should constantly strive for.

Yes, I’m talking about Kimestu no Yaiba: Yuukaku-hen, while it technically started late in the season I’m still counting it towards fall even though technically new episodes started airing during an early start towards Winter 2022. Meanwhile, the beloved sci-fi epic, 86: Eighty-Six Part 2 also makes an appearance on this list. The point is that this list features an eclectic cast of 10 shows as is in line with the last post. Before we actually start properly I would like to point you in the direction of the RC AOTS post, which accumulates and ranks the show’s from 2021, with some fun categories thrown in there. We’ve been working hard and discussing among the writers which are our favorites and what should win what. So go check it out as it should already be up by the time this post goes out.

As you can see some shows are pretty well known but others are not so much, hopefully, this post can convince you to give those lesser-known shows a chance as you’ll have to take my worth for it. Hopefully, you come out convinced of giving a chance to the anime that is not being raved about by the community, because it doesn’t hold that IP recognition, meanwhile the more popular shows are also here hopefully satisfying those that look for the best of the best in anime.

Disclaimer – This is not one end all be all list, and should not be taken as such, the anime in this list is in no particular order as well. Fell free to discuss in the comments what was your favorite anime of Fall 2021

Best of Summer 2021

From left to right top to bottom. Kobayashi S2, Fena Pirate Princess, Sonny Boy, Love Live Superstar, Aquatope, Bokutachi no Remake, Pharmacy in Another World, How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom, Heion no Sedai Idaten-tachi, Kanojo mo Kanojo

After an almost perfect Spring Season, can Summer compare?

Summer does in fact bring some interesting shows that are sure to attract even the most veteran anime fans. Bear in mind that this list is just meant to be pure recommendations. This is not meant as an end-all be-all list. Maybe you find some new and interesting anime to watch, maybe you’ve already seen all the ones on this list, either way, there’s something for everyone. So check it out!

Here we highlight some series that were standout during Summer 2021, they surprised me in one way or another, or simply go above and beyond what is usually expected, not everything here on the list can be considered exceptional in the terms of animation, but at least the list provided here contains some exceptional stories, that are sure to keep you interested in most of your bing watches. Yes, I’m talking about How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom but that series has a twist on not only isekai but also on political dramas as a whole. Taking a whole new direction that we don’t usually see.

The anime here provides some form of content that goes beyond the norm in one way or another. Nevertheless, let’s get on with the list.
