Hello everyone! Like everyone else I have been contemplating my top anime of 2014. Those sort of top five or top ten lists are one of my favorite types of features on Kotaku and TAY. While I've been ramping up my anime watching, I still don't come close to watching everything. So I'd like to hear everyone opinions and thoughts on what they watched this year in the comments (assuming you aren't writing a full blown TAY article about it).

Here are a few "Top ____ anime lists of 2014" to get started:

Top Five Comedy anime of 2014: 1. Sabegabu 2. The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior 3. Seitokai Yakuindomo* 4. Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun 5. Gonna be the Twin-Tail!!
