Haruhi Suzumiya is incredibly eccentric and mostly anti-social and easily bored. She also has no interest in "Normal Humans" although she doesn't quite know it, she has god-like-powers. This means she could easily destroy and reshape reality if she wanted to.

This would only happen if she became bored enough of the current world she could create a closed space, meaning a new world..This is technically why the SOS Brigade was formed?

The SOS Brigade has 5 members: Haruhi Suzumiya: The leader, Yuki Nagato: The alien, Mikuru Asahina: The time traveler, Itsuki Koizumi: The esper and of course Kyon: The grunt. Yeah hes the slave of the group.

Yuki, Mikuru and Itsuki have all reveled themselves to Kyon and told him that they where sent by their higher-ups to watch over Haruhi. She must never know of her powers or of their powers otherwise the world will change.

Harauhi's version of the SOS Brigade is to find time travelers, espers and aliens or any other weird unusual activity that looks ordinary. Now the real reason behind SOS Brigade is to watch over Harauhi and make her life as un-boring as possible to prevent the creation of a new world.

Silent voice is a movie that was produced by Kyoto Animation in late 2016. This is truly a master piece that I recommend every anime fan should watch. For this specific anime movie I wont go explain that much.

Genre - Slice Of Life, Comedy, Parody, School

Episodes 24, Seasons 1, OVAS 1

Lucky star is an unusually humerus anime thats shows you the life of a group of high-school girls named Miyuki Takara, Konata Izumi, Tsukasa Hiiragi and Kagami Hiiragi.

The main character of the show is Konata Izumi, shes an intelligent athletic girl, that despite her attributes, she's not in any sports clubs, she spends everyday just playing video games. since she plays video games all the time, she always resorts to staying up all night studying for tests (Which she passes flawlessly every time).

If you haven't noticed Konata's a lazy girl that lacks interest in everything other than anime and video games. As the story goes on Miyuki, Konata, Tsukasa and Kagami move from first year to second year then to third year. However, the anime starts at their second year of high-school.

Lucky star also has numerous references from other popular anime and manga.

10. K-On!!

Genre - Music, Comedy, Slice Of Life, School

Episodes 39, Seasons 2, OVAS 2, Movies 1, Extra Episodes 17

K-On's story is revolves around a group of first year girls that decided to join the Light Music Club. The Light Music Club was going to be disbanded due to lack of members. Though the girls wouldn't allow this to happen, so Mio Akiyama and Ritsu Tainaka both decided to start recruiting (since they needed 4 members to be recognized as an official club).

They recruited Tsumugi Kotobuki and later on got Yui Hirasawa to join as the fourth member. They then formed a band and named it "Ho-kago Tea Time". In the 2nd year they got their 5th member named Azusa Nakano joined the Light Music Club. Though the girls sometimes spend their time practicing and performing,  series is more focused on their day to day lives at the school.

Everyone from the Light Music Club are known for having tea every single day after school (Hence the name after school teatime) and slacking off all time rather than actually practicing music.. This is another cutesy anime by Kyoto that everyone should watch.

Due to the recent Events of Kyoto Animation, I decided to make a list of their top best produced anime (My opinion). Everyone raised a total of $2,370,670 (¥250,416,242) out of the goal of $750,000 (¥79,204,500) on gofundme

From me and Everyone else: Thank you for all your hard work and dedication and for years of entertainment. We all love you and are all wishing for a speedy recovery. our thoughts and prayers are with the families effected 

Here's an official statement from Kyoto Animation website >Thank you for your support and guidance<
