Time to look at the best anime series of 2016. Thanks to an internship this year, this list isn’t as extensive as intended. Popular titles such as Erased, Sweetness and Lightning, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, and Drifters couldn’t be addressed. This is the main reason this list isn’t the “Top 10 Anime of 2016.” Still there were plenty of great titles which deserve recognition this year.
6Honorable Mention: Macross Delta
This series could easily have made this list and even been a contender for the number one position. Unfortunately, thanks to the licensing debacle surrounding this franchise it wasn’t streamed in America through proper channels. This disqualifies it from being the list but it still deserves recognition as being a powerful and enjoyable entry into the Macross series.
