Year 2014 has been pretty good to us anime otakus around the world. We got to see and experience bunch of new worlds and got to continue our journeys in several existing ones. The year is coming to an end so I thought it’d be a good idea to showcase some of the best anime series of 2014.
Hitsugi no Chaika is the first simulcast anime series that I’ve watched that got two seasons and actually ended in the same year as well. I’m a bit sad that it ended, but at least we received an absolute ending and not the famous “read the manga” ending which is the case for the majority of anime endings nowadays.
I have always liked the way characters are designed in anime, because they were very different from your “typical” cartoons. Of course today, we see big eyes and other anime influences in many cartoons (e.g. Avatar: The Last Airbender) and animated movies from Disney and Pixar (e.g. Frozen). The five characters that are listed below are my favorite character designs I’ve encountered so far while watching anime. I didn’t set any specific criteria for myself so some characters made the list simply because of their attire.
