The long waited best anime for 2019?
Do i still need to say the title? Ok fine. It is Kimetsu no Yaiba, known as Demon Slayer.
Before we begin, you really need to know about ufotable, which is a well known studio for lavish high budget production, especially on fighting scene, especially usage of combining dynamic camera work with CGI background. So I pretty much can expect what type of anime this will be. Is the anime really ground breaking in many aspect? Not exactly, but it have several strengths especially on anime production quality.
Anime started very strong for first couple of episodes, but i feel like because it following the manga directly, it suffered a problem where it ended at the part of what i considered not the strongest. The series also used several aspect of ending an episode in cliffhanger, making viewer wanting to watch newest episode ASAP. Since I binged this whole series in 24 hours, i noticed the "stretching of episodes" many times through the series. As for characters, all MC, support character as well as villains are very interesting as they have their own backstory. Im however, not a fan of many of comedy moment though, as i found them annoying (you know what i meant when you watch them). Oh, i forgot to mention, that this oni (demon) blood storyline is pretty much carbon copy of many vampire story.
This series is a good series because of high anime production, it is pretty much follow the pattern of traditional shounen without dragging them to hundred of episodes. I highly recommend it, although personally i dont think it deserved all praises (but mostly it suffer for having only 26 episodes)
Alternative : Hunter x Hunter & Tokyo Ghoul is the closest i feel when watching this series. Other recommendation without any particular order : Ao no Exorcist, Owari no Seraph.... and seriously all those long running shounen you probably already watched.

Awkward sister with bunch of lolis
Wataten! An Angel Flew Down to Me
Do you like marshmallow? This is the exactly the feeling of having anime around you. I searched specifically for shoujo ai / yuri, i go for lighthearted lolis instead of heavy drama romance. And i dont disappoint. As usual fan for cute girl doing cute things, this is the typical several friends of girls doing normal stuff in school, at friends house and hang out outside. Does it break the mold and introduce something new? Not really.
A different is probably that there is one older sister is that problem being with society (more like introvert) who find a joy suddenly met his younger sister classmates. With her hobby of creating costume for cosplay, i think you can guess why she so hyped up to see cute little girls. Throughout the series, we are introduced to more of her sister friends and she having a blast when everyone of them coming their house. Aside from typical stuff throughout the series, i believe that the last episodes is one of the most beautiful story done for this kind of anime.
Again, if you hate lolis, you wouldnt enjoy this. Not exactly designed for people who are against it. Although quality wise, i feel it is just cute anime that slightly above average that bring joy to watch.
Alternative : For this one, i probably focused more comedy / fun CGDCT anime such as Kiniro Mosaic, Yuru Yuri, Non Non Biyori, Gochumon wa Usagi desu. Anything else, i guess probably something with older character like Usa Maid & Ichigo Marshmallow.

Love triangle in one family?
This is one heavy super duper plot twist I seen in anime. I have to spoilt first episode abit, so you can judge if you wanted to see it or not. It started by our MC having sex with random girl because of unrequited love. This love that MC have, is actually with his teacher, which have some encounter on the roof. So the plot twist part? His father getting remarried, and he got 2 new sisters which is one is the teacher, and random girls she have sex with was his step sister. Anime focus heavily on drama on how would a realistic human handle this kind of relationship.
Despite being typical "loser" MC, at least at this point he is being realistic. He tried to get other girlfriend to keep his mind off, but he just cant take off his love for the teacher. His sister, being social awkward, is trying to use love / sex as a way to understand human communication. As for other part of the series, there are several support characters that is quite weak IMO. Artstyle is pretty basic because this is just normal standard drama / romance anime. Nevertheless it was quite a wild ride.
Depend if you can handle this kind of step siblings love, but i do recommend you to try because it is more emphasize on drama rather than going full ecchi like many other do. Despite I mentioned about sex earlier, none was shown so it is pretty safe. However do take note that this series is pretty slow for most people.
Alternative : Oh boy, this type of triangle i havent watch for awhile, but on top my head atm are : Scum's Wish, School Days, Ichigo 100% (abit ecchi though), Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, Suzuka, Fuuka.
