    meanwhile i just caught up with some anime just started one piece, finished with fairytail and full metal alchemist and so want a season 2 for blue exorcist :P

      I also only started watching blue exorcist recently. I'm glad there's a second season of Durarara though.

      I started One Piece in 2012. Took me 4 months and 2 weeks of binging to catch up. No regret.

      Add Gintama to your list. Anime comedy/satire at it's best.

    im so sad only 1 ova ep and a movie afterwards, need season 2 definitely, i still need to read the manga :D other animes i havent really gotten into i have to finish one piece lol over 700 eps plz help :D

    I'd have to agree with Psycho Pass. I missed a lot of anime last year but I caught that one and it was excellent. In the first episode or two I was concerned it was looking like a GITS clone, but was pleased to see it went in its own direction and did well with it.

      Concerned? I'd be freakin happy with so much as a GiTS clone, cyberpunk is hard to come by. Psycho Pass is great though and did it's own thing, just wish the second season had more episodes, it definitely felt rushed.

        I love cyberpunk. It's one of my favourite genres, and GITS is a paragon of the genre. But for me personally, obvious copies or genre cash-in attempts are hard to really enjoy. I don't want a Ghost in the Shell clone, I want to see anime that explores its setting well and stands in its own right. Psycho Pass was one of those, which I was definitely happy about.

    No Amagi Brilliant Park? Get outta here

      I caught that one late and was able to binge-watch the entire season. Time exceptionally well-spent.

    This is isn't half bad. At the very least, it's all anime that's recommendable in every sense of that word. I recommend you to at least try the series, and if the genre's your cup of tea, you'll enjoy it.
