The Speakeasy #050: Perfect Love, 11 Anime and Manga We loveLoveLOVE

Drink #050: Perfect Love
11 Anime and Manga We loveLoveLOVE

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we decided to focus in on our all-time favorite anime and manga. It was a difficult task, but we feel our lists reflect us pretty well. And let’s remember, this is a celebration of what we love, not necessarily the best anime and manga ever made. Think of it this way: If you could only watch 11 anime and read 11 manga for the rest of your life, what would you pick?

Perfect Love

  • 1 Lemon rind

First pour (into a tumbler) the vodka, then the parfait amour, then the maraschino liqueur over the ice.

    3) Crest of the Stars

    I don’t consume nearly as much manga as I do anime, but if I had to pick 3 they’d be:
    1) Rurouni Kenshin
    2) Genshiken
    3) Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind

    I believe an individual’s favorites list is a window to what made them a fan in their early years. The choices usually concentrate from the period that person got really invested into anime/manga and have stuck with them ever since. It’s simple from there to estimate what era of fandom that person came from.
