Fall 2011 – My Favourites | Anime Tops
Sorry for the late post >.< Got caught up in studying and stuff. But here it is my list for Fall 2011. Quick disclaimer, I know Hunter x Hunter (2011) aired during the fall season, however, I never saw it and is why it isn’t on this list — so don’t hate me pls x
Number #1: Fate/Zero
Genre: Action, Supernatural, Magic, Fantasy
To top this list off, we have what I thought was one of the best Anime of 2011 and I am sure many of you can agree with me, Fate/Zero. Obviously, the following seasons, especially Season 2 beat the first season; but for the purposes of this list today, Fate/Zero comes in at number one.
With the promise of granting any wish, the omnipotent Holy Grail triggered three wars in the past, each too cruel and fierce to leave a victor. In spite of that, the wealthy Einzbern family is confident that the Fourth Holy Grail War will be different; namely, with a vessel of the Holy Grail now in their grasp. Solely for this reason, the much hated “Magus Killer” Kiritsugu Emiya is hired by the Einzberns, with marriage to their only daughter Irisviel as binding contract.
Kiritsugu now stands at the center of a cutthroat game of survival, facing off against six other participants, each armed with an ancient familiar, and fueled by unique desires and ideals. Accompanied by his own familiar, Saber, the notorious mercenary soon finds his greatest opponent in Kirei Kotomine, a priest who seeks salvation from the emptiness within himself in pursuit of Kiritsugu.
Based on the light novel written by Gen Urobuchi, Fate/Zero depicts the events of the Fourth Holy Grail War—10 years prior to Fate/stay night. Witness a battle royale in which no one is guaranteed to survive.
Number #2: Mirai Nikki
Genre: Action, Mystery, Psychological, Shounen, Supernatural, Thriller
I loved Mirai Nikki so much that even read the manga and it made me love this Anime even more. The story of this Anime is so interesting and so entertaining it does extremely well at making you want more and leaves you on the edge of your seat each episode.
Lonely high school student, Yukiteru Amano, spends his days writing a diary on his cellphone, while conversing with his two seemingly imaginary friends Deus Ex Machina, who is the god of time and space, and Murmur, the god’s servant. Revealing himself to be an actual entity, Deus grants Yukiteru a “Random Diary,” which shows highly descriptive entries based on the future and forces him into a bloody battle royale with 11 other holders of similarly powerful future diaries.
With the last person standing designated as the new god of time and space, Yukiteru must find and kill the other 11 in order to survive. He reluctantly teams up with his obsessive stalker Yuno Gasai (who also possesses such a diary), and she takes it upon herself to ensure his safety. But there’s more to the girl than meets the eye, as she might have other plans for her unrequited love…
Number #3: Ben-To
Genre: Action, Comedy, Martial Arts
Coming in at number 3, we have Ben-to. Why is it number three you might ask? Good question, I love this Anime solely for the fight scenes. Given that this Anime is all about discounted food — might as well make it look awesome with epic fight scenes for the food. Am I right?
April 6th, 2011—that was the day that 15-year-old You Satou was knocked unconscious while reaching for a half-priced bento, a prepackaged meal sold at the supermarket. By the time he woke up on the ground, all the bento boxes were gone. He left the supermarket hungry and in pain, only for the same thing to happen the next day.
You soon learn that, in the world of Ben-To, discounted bentos are sacred and highly-sought after, and in order to get one, you needed to fight your way to the top. These bento brawls are fought by experienced fighters known as “Wolves”, who leave the inexperienced and weak “Dogs” like him lying on the ground in defeat. In a world where the weak are left hungry and only the strong can dine, You must train under the guidance of the silver-haired “Ice Queen”, Sen Yarizui, to become a bento-eating wolf himself.
