    Since the year is coming to a close, I figure it is only fitting to ask this question.

    Honestly it's tough for me to pick one. We had plenty of great shows that I'd give 8/10 or higher and I enjoyed or am enjoyed a lot, but none of them reach that blatantly 9/10 or higher tier. I've been trying to be pretty harsh on my mental anime scoring in the past year or two, but 5/10 is average and like I said 8/10 is great, some could likely round up to a 9 or I'd prefer to just use decimals really, but you get the idea.

    It'd be easier for me to just pick my standout anime per season rather that pick one from among them:

    Winter:
    Little Witch Academia
    Onihei (I swear I'm like the only one who watched this, I blame Amazon)
    KonoSuba S2

    Spring:
    Uchouten Kazoku S2

    Summer:
    Made in Abyss
    Princess Principal

    Fall:
    Garo: Vanishing Line

    These are the 8s and up. There's a good number more that I'd give 7s too as well which are on a similar level, but just fall short of that level I'd recommend to most everyone, though most are still ones I'd recommend based on what a person is looking for. Note that I'm only naming TV series and I'll include shows from this season even if they're planned to be two cour or longer.

    If anyone wants to ask about the ones that missed the cut feel free. I like sharing anime I enjoy.

    Attack On Titan>My Hero Academia>Dragonball Super>Black Clover>One Piece>Boruto

    Attack On Titan had a awesome 12 episodes.

    Season 2 of My Hero Academia was really good.

    TOP has been very enjoyable and we got some fun filler at the beginning of the year.

    Black Clover i'm like three episodes behind but i have enjoyed what i have watched.

    One Piece anime has had some bad moments and some really good moments this year, i actually feel like it has really been picking up since Sanji special.

    Boruto has been meh tier aside from Gaiden and some other episodes here and there.

    First thing that comes to mind is Made in Abyss
    Then I remember Little Witch Academia, Konosuba 2 and Maid Dragon were all this year too
    I still need to finish Uchoten 2
    Haven't really watched anything this season besides Kekkai Sensen 2,
    And I'll check Ancient Magus Bride when all it's episodes are out . . .

    All that considered, at the moment, it's a legit battle between LWA and Made in Abyss
    LWA had so many strong episodes of pure joy and fun, especially in the middle
    And it still delivered some big revelations and moments that hit like a hammer
    It was only kinda dragged down by the weird football-to-nuke subplot near the climax
    That and the main antagonist needing a bit more interaction with the rest of the cast
    MiA on the other hand, that was kinda hampered by a boring middle, but . . .
    The opening and closing episodes were absolute masterpiece anime episodes
    Not to mention the backgrounds

    So yeah, tough call :hmm

    2017 was an extremely sad year for anime for sure.

    Dragon Ball Super saved it but barely.

    I'll list my upwards of 7/10 shows after all since I think they're pertinent to other people's picks:

    Winter:
    Demi-chan wa Kataritai

    Fall:
    Boku no Hero Academia S2
    Shingeki no Kyojin S2
    Sekaisuru Kado
    Shingeki no Bahamut: Virgin Soul

    Summer:
    Aho Girl
    Owarimonogatari S2

    Fall:
    Imouto sae Ireba Ii. (surprisingly good at what it tries to do)
    Inuyashiki

    These are the good-great shows between 7/10 and 8/10. Even the 6+/10 shows include stuff I really did enjoy and hell even stuff above a 5 can be good enough to watch.

    My top animes for 2017 are

    Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu S2
    Owarimonogatari S2
    Made in Abyss

    I'd say Rakugo S2 is the best of this year, def a masterpiece imo

    There were several good anime but Made in Abyss takes my vote. At least this is the one that comes to my mind right now.

    Probably the only anime I watched this year.

    Wanna catch up with One Piece anime but I've already missed nearly 2 years worth of episodes and since I'm already up to date with the manga, I don't know whether it's worth it.

    DBS was really good this year tho the ToP is plateauing a tad...Theres a chance it can come back again before the new year

    Attack on Titan was good

    I wish to all the gods i could include HxH 2017 on this list...

    Attack on Titan was a league on its own.
    Garo has been excellent as well this season.
    Inuyashiki is good but the anime couldve been a lot better if it wasn't rushed.

    Other than that I haven't really enjoyed much anime this year. DBS was enjoyable during the recruitment arc.

    That's fair, despite not liking Rakugo (the art itself) and it having inherent issues from its demographic, Rakugo S2 shed most of that and improved even over S2. I'll throw it in the with the 7s at least.

    This is pretty much what I had in mind as well. I would just add The Night is Short, Walk on Girl was my favorite anime film from this year.

    I just watched it last night. It was a lot of fun and even more amusing if you knew some of the characters and elements crossing over from Tatami Galaxy.
