THE TOP 5(+1) CARTOONS (IN MY OPINION) THAT ARE ANIME!

It was so much fun the first time, let’s do it again!

But this time around, I will be limiting myself to only Japanese cartoons; also known as anime.

Then, just to make it even harder, I decided to add cartoons from this decade as well.

It really is a cluster f*** honestly.

Yet to explain this list I have to go over a conversation that I had. Though as to not spoil anything on the list, I will refer to the cartoon as “Cartoon X” .

The conversation went as such*…. Continue reading
