The year is almost over, we got a lot of good anime but also a lot of crap, but if you’re looking for something to binge watch, or you missed some because you were busy; here they are in no particular order the top 10 new anime of 2017.
Note: There are not any major spoilers here, and descriptions are shortened so you can experience the real story for yourself.
10. Made In Abyss
Riko is an orphan who explores the Abyss and looks for relics. One day she saves her friend from being eaten by this giant monster thing and ends up being chased herself, and then she’s saved by a robot boy with a penis (it was mentioned on the first episode).
The character art style might be a turn off for some, but the story and gorgeous scenery more than make up for it. Besides, don’t you want to know what’s up with the robot boy and the whole abyss deal? This series has been subbed and has 13 episodes.
9. Recovery Of An MMO Junkie
Have you ever just wanted to say “fuck it“, quit your job, and just play your favorite MMO all day? Moriko Morioka is living your dream, but when her MMO life and real life start coming together, romantic shenanigans start to ensue. This anime has 12 episodes and has been subbed and dubbed.
8. Kekegurui – Compulsive Gambler
Private School for the wealthy where the hierarchy is determined by how good students are at gambling. One day Yumeko appears and starts shaking things up.
This 12 episode subbed anime is very tense, but it has one of the best jazzy intros ever, watch it if you hate or love gambling.
7. Saga Of Tanya The Evil
Typical story, businessman dies and resurrects as an orphaned little girl who joins the military in a parallel world, and becomes a ruthless force to be reckoned with, also there is magic. Subbed and dubbed 12 episode series.
Is she evil? Sure, but you have to ask why; still evil though.
Magicians summon famous warriors from history and battle each other to win the Holy Grail which will grant the victor one wish.
What about Fate/Stay Night and Fate/Zero? This is a parallel world so it still counts as a new series. It’s nice to have watched the other series so you get all the references and stuff like that, but you don’t have to watch them to enjoy this subbed and dubbed 12 episode series.
5. Tsuredure Children
This is a short form anime, each episode lasts about 11 minutes and consists of tiny different love stories of an ongoing cast of high schoolers.
This one is really fun and light-hearted, I recommend it for those who like those little funny moments in their romance and for anyone who has ever had a crush.
This anime has 12 episodes and has been subbed and dubbed.
4. Restaurant To Another World
A western cuisine Japanese restaurant’s doors open from another world every Saturday. Each episode you meet a new and interesting character along with a delicious looking dish.
I don’t know why but I found this anime really relaxing for some reason, it has 12 episodes and has been subbed and dubbed.
3. Juni Taisen: Zodiac War
12 warriors each bearing a name from the Chinese zodiac, engage in a battle royale; the winner of which will be granted one wish.
You don’t really know how all this is going to work out and that’s one of the bests parts of this anime along with the action in this 12 subbed and dubbed episode anime.
The story of a guy protecting a little girl mixed with fighting, shooting, and psychic stuff.
Yes, technically this is not a Japanese anime series, but it is animated (and French).
The voice work is top notch and the animation is pretty effing good and it complements the action and crazy story pretty well in these 26 subbed and dubbed episodes (only 21 are out as of the time of this writing).
Amano Keita is a gaming loner and one day the hottest girl in school invites him to join her gaming club.
Another romantic rom-com full of misunderstandings and tons and tons of gaming related references. Maybe it’s because I’m a gaming nerd but this anime was really fun to watch; too bad it is only 12 episodes. If you only had to watch one out of this bunch, choose this one. This anime has been subbed and dubbed.
So dear reader, did you enjoy this list? Have you watched any of these shows? What are your favorite ones?

For those of you still crying “it’s top nine not top 10, number 2 doesn’t count because blah, blah, blah…” here is your punishment:
This 13 episode subbed short form anime follows the story of cats that are bananas, or is it bananas that are also cats? The important thing is that the Bananyas are cute as hell.
Nya is the Japanese equivalent of meow, so this makes sense to you now.
Don’t do drugs kids and have a happy new year!!
