5 Anime Series I'm Watching & Loving!

My anime obsession is still going strong and probably even more so now I'm living in Asia and surrounded by it, I mean there's at least 4 stations on my TV that are dedicated to anime so it's pretty hard to avoid but I'm completely fine with that. Rainy season is here and the cold weather will soon be upon the northern hemisphere so it's the perfect time to watch some TV so here are 5 anime series I've been watching and loving lately.

Retusko one of the newest characters from Sanrio, she's a red panda who works in an office and relives her frustrations by singing death metal... I have never loved and related to Sanrio character so much! Each episode is only a minute long but so funny and so amazing. Retsuko is definitely my new fave Sanrio character, sorry Kitty-chan.

I absolutely love anything about androids and artificial intelligence so this anime captivated me from the start and it gets bonus points for throwing in a couple references to my favourite ever movie Blade Runner. There are only 6 short episodes of this anime so I pretty much binge watched them in an hour and then I just had to watch it again! I absolutely love the animation and how it makes you think about the nature of humanity and what makes us human.

Yes I know I'm pretty much late to the hype on this one but I finally got round to watching it and I really enjoyed it. I feel like Tokyo Ghoul has a similar theme to Eve no Jikan about humanity and who deserves life and what being alive means but in place of androids you have ghouls. I also found this one particularly relatable as a "halfie" being thrown into this new culture and learning to survive although admittedly I don't have to worry about people trying to kill and eat me... that I know of anyway!

I watched a few episodes of this anime many, many years ago so this is probably old news to many of you but I have very recently got into it again and I love it so much! I mean who doesn't want a butler like Sebastian he's handsome, funny, charming and will come to your rescue whether you need a excellent cup of tea or are being held captive by some angry demons. You see, Sebastian is simply one hell of a butler!

Flying Witch follows Makoto a young witch that comes of age and moves to the country with her cat as part of her witch training... plot sound familiar? I won't lie there are definitely some similarities to Ghibli's Kiki's Delivery Service but that's one of the things that drew me to this anime. This is a typical slice of life anime and an easy and relaxing watch with very little plot but each story progresses very naturally and the characters are genuinely sweet, funny and charming. I absolutely adore the animation to, it's so beautiful and the images of nature and focus on it remind me very much of a Ghbli movie. If you're having a particularly stressful day this is the perfect anime to just relax and forget all your worries to.

What have you been watching and loving lately?
