Personal Anime Series Rankings

by RetepAdam | created - 14 Jul 2017 | updated - 9 months ago | Public

Only includes series I've finished in their entirety, meaning series that are still in progress will not appear until they have concluded. Ratings are also going to skew high for that reason since I'm unlikely to finish a series that I'm not enjoying.

Recommendations are welcome.
