Dude Ore Monogatari is super adorable. It's a great one! And yeah it's not too old but it is from around that time.

Also I'll recommend Sk8 the Infinity for anyone who likes sports anime at all. I didn't use to be super into them but some of them get me. Especially the more extreme sports ones like this. Happy to say the characters are fun and it's go just enough ridiculous shit so far to really get me. They have only shown brief glimpses of the villain so far but what they have.... omfg.... it looks like we're about to get a skateboarder version of DIO. Even his voice sounded similar and the vampire thing is totally there. One of the main characters is a half canadian snowboarder learning to skateboard now.... I feel like I'm starting to see a trend with canadian stereotypes in anime lately....

Wonder Egg Priority is really beautiful. It's also very disturbing and horrific in a way at times. It's hard to justifiably even describe it but the premise is that a girl who is a shut-in going through emotional trauma finds a gatcha machine that sells eggs containing 'friends'. She's told that by buying and helping these 'friends' she can build up points to save the life of someone she lost. Everyone of the people she encounters when she goes into the world via these eggs is a person dealing with some sort of demon and she has to help every one of them overcome that demon. This typically plays out via fancy action sequences with keyblade-like weapons but only really ends when the victim comes to terms with things. I don't want to say anymore but it's really something and I can't wait to see where it goes. It can be pretty heart wrenching so watch at your own risk.
Jerami and I just started watching that one (well, it was more like he started watching it and I got sucked in around episode 3~4, but that's pretty typical of my viewing habits). The character and weapon designs are pretty wild and I'm invested in seeing where it goes. (But yeah, holy disturbing themes, Batman.) The bit I've seen gave me sort of a Madoka Magica vibe with maybe a trace of Serial Experiments Lain weirdness? I like the animation and the soundtrack too.

Just thinking about Wonder Egg after episode 10 especially for whatever reason almost had me in tears. I can't fucking believe this show right now. Forget that I have never seen an anime handle themes like this this tastefully, I don't think I have seen another show that's handled them quite like this one. I think it's gonna be hard to top this anime for me this year. It's becoming a fav. I'm kind of also a sucker for stuff like this. Maybe my morbid curiosity in part but also when a show can give me feels like this one does I know they're doing something right. This show makes me really happy and also fucking terrifies me unlike a lot of stuff does.
