As I did with 2001, 2002, and 2003, I’m looking for recommendations for what anime to watch from 2004. Wikipedia’s list is probably the easiest to browse. Same rules copy-pasting from last time. Don’t recommend anything too long (so no Sgt. Frog). Don’t recommend any sequels (so no
Bible Black New Testament Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig). Don’t go for the stupidly obvious (so no Bible Black New Testament Samurai Champloo). Try to recommend stuff that you think I will actually like and haven’t already seen, but don’t worry about those points too much. When in doubt, just recommend anyway because it’s always interesting seeing what people still hold up as being good from that year.
Year in Review of 2003 is coming shortly. I’ve put this out first because I’ve been bashing my head against this Last Exile review, which I want to publish first before rounding off the year, but it’s just not coming together. Not sure how long I’ll keep doing these 00′s retrospectives. At my current rate of covering 1 year every 6 months, I won’t be done until the end of 2016. By that stage it will be time to start the 10′s retrospectives in preparation for the end of the decade. Still, I enjoy having this project on the backburner and it’s a nice excuse to return to old favourites of mine
like Bible Black New Testament.
