And that's Summer 2019!
What was the best anime of Summer 2019? What was the worst?
In this thread we recommend 'awards' or 'titles' for anime this season so as to tell people in the future what we thought of them, what we recommend, what defined this season--good or bad.
So recommend a titled recommendation for an anime this season, and if it gets enough support, we'll enshrine it in the "A&M Recommends" list for eternity!
(Uno has provided a great list of anime this season here: https://www.animeleague.net/forum/sh...ecommendations)

To start I shall nominate:
Vinland Saga - Recommended Historical
OK, here are my recommendations:
I do not nominate continuations, but there were some great ones!
I support Momogari's recommendation for Vinland Saga. I'd call it Best Historical Anime
Wasteful Days of High School Girls - Best Comedy
The Demon Girl Next Door (Machikado Mazoku) - Best Anime Based on 4-panel Manga
If It's for My Daughter, I'd Even Defeat a Demon Lord - Best Parenting Anime
Dr Stone - Biggest Disappointment
If you want to know more about me:
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. (Evelyn Beatrice Hall)
Information wants to be free. (Stewart Brand)
The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum—even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate. (Noam Chomsky)
(about neoliberalism) Instead of citizens, it produces consumers. Instead of communities, it produces shopping malls. The net result is an atomized society of disengaged individuals who feel demoralized and socially powerless. (Robert W. McChesney)
Liberty without socialism is privilege and injustice, socialism without liberty is slavery and brutality. (Mikhail Bakunin)
Man, your head is haunted; you have wheels in your head! You imagine great things, and depict to yourself a whole world of gods that has an existence for you, a spirit-realm to which you suppose yourself to be called, an ideal that beckons to you. You have a fixed idea! Do not think that I am jesting or speaking figuratively when I regard those persons who cling to the Higher, and (because the vast majority belongs under this head) almost the whole world of men, as veritable fools, fools in a madhouse. (Max Stirner)
No one else can help you discover what you really want and what you really need. You can only discover it yourself. No one else can convince you. You can only convince yourself. No one else can liberate you. You can only liberate yourself. (Who Cares)
I'm a bit behind on the summer season, but I'd like to also vote for Vinland Saga -- Best Historical Anime.
“There is no such thing as a coincidence in this world. There is only the inevitable.” – Yuuko Ichihara, xxxHolic
I'd vote for Danberu Nan-Kiro Moteru? - Recommended Sports.

Shouldn't it be in the sports category instead?
@unoduetre - you're absolutely correct, I've edited and fixed my vote, thanks.
I'll nominate Fire Force for "Best Shonen Style"
@unoduetre I'm sorry but I have to vote against Dr Stone - Biggest Disappointment. I'm just not disappointed.
Why do you like it?

@unoduetre I responded over in the Dr Stone thread so we don't clutter up this one.
