Totals: 38 books, 27 movies, 12 seasons of TV, 50 volumes of manga, 72 seasons of anime, 4 anime movies. Zero video games, yipes.

The standout was obviously finishing up Star Trek TOS + animated series + TOS movies. It's not life-changing or anything but mostly solid, very forward-looking, and I think more sophisticated than its reputation. There's some good TV there. Also on the movie front, The Barkley Marathons really is as good as everybody says and worth the time for any runner.

On the anime side, Heavy Object is maybe a bit heavy on "competence porn" but a very well put-together (except the hastily-assembled conclusion) piece of military sci-fi. Tonkatsu DJ Agetarou gets this year's "this could only work in anime" award. Orange was probably the manga highlight, a fairly simple story but very well put-together and pretty sweet.

66 seasons anime (including dropped, of course), 5 anime movies, 20 volumes of manga, 3 digital manga, 71 books, 2 plays, 20 seasons of tv shows (including drops), 10 movies, 1 concert, and 3 games.

I'm not going to do "best" in every category. The standout in anime was (surprisingly) Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, which compressed the sprawling manga into something a little more focused and still awfully charming. Book nod goes to The Human Division for The Feels, although The End of Eternity is still excellent. Although I only got to two plays, the production of Doubt stuck out above all other other media, too. And on the other end of the spectrum, for TV, there's still something oddly special about Archer.
