2008 did not produce a classic

Anime Source finished their yearly pollat what the public believed to be the best anime of the year, and completely unsurprisingly, Geass flattened everyone else. But apparantly Geass has mixed reviews and was not as good as the first season, which only scored 5th in the 2006 survey. So why did Geass top the poll? So I’m going to use a psychiotrists system to get to the root of the problem: The 5 whys.

Mind you, you can't deny that Geass was a great anime

 Whydid Geass R2 top the greatest anime of 2008?

Because most people voted it in their top 5

Anime 2008: A year in review

How the hell am I supposed to open this post? I’m talking about every single anime in 2008, the best and the worst in every category. I haven’t seen everything this year obviously, such as Aria, ef, Shigofumi and DMC, but I’ve had a chance to check out pretty much everything else. Anyway, here we go 😀

Since I'm limiting this to only anime which began airing in 2008, there will be no Gintama. But it deserves a mention anyway for being so consistently funny

Shut up and Explode

If you happen to live in America, own a PS3 and have a bit of money to spare then rejoice, for ye can obtain episodes of Xam’d Lost Memories completely legally for a small price to play on your PS3, before the Japanese even get to watch the show. Yes, Xam’d won’t air in Japan until September yet ye already can get the first 5 episodes with a new episode every week!

However I’d say it’s a safe bet to guess you either don’t live in America or don’t have a PS3. The requirements are certainly rather restricting, so I guess you can’t watch the show. Oh except for illegally downloading it, but I’m sure you wouldn’t dare do that now, would you.

However if you just happen to be curious about whether the show is any good or not, I shall present thee with the opening song, Shut up and Explode by the Boom Boom Satellites. The song wins my award for best opening song name, best opening song band name, and best opening song full stop.
