The LofZOdyssey Highlights is a chance to look back on the previous year and celebrate anime at its best. Throughout every winter, spring, summer, and fall season, there is a wide variety of memorable music, breathtaking visuals, unforgettable characters, and outstanding stories.

The Inaugural LofZOdyssey Highlights will be held between February 18th, 2019 and February 22nd, 2019. This event’s categories are:

For a series to be eligible for these highlights, it needs to meet the following requirements:

Helpful terminology
cour: A Japanese television programming scheduling block.
single-cour: Typically one three-month period.
consecutive-cour: Two or more cours which air back to back.

length break between airings.
  1. An anime’s final episode must air between January 1st, 2018 and December 31st, 2018.
    • Consecutive-cour rule:
      • If a series is part of a two or more consecutive-cour and if the final episode of the final cour DOES’T air within the stated time period, it WILL NOT BE eligible for the 2018 Highlights.
        • Examples of such series include, but are not limited to:

    • Split-cour rule:
      • If a series is part of a split-cour and if one cour’s final episode airs BETWEEN the stated dates, it will be counted as a separate, individual series, and thus, it WILL BE eligible for the 2018 Highlights.
        • Example: Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 1
      • If a series is part of a split-cour and if one cour’s final episode airs OUTSIDE the stated dates, it will be counted as a separate, individual series, and thus, it WILL NOT BE eligible for the 2018 Highlights.

Please understand, I was unable to watch every series released in 2018. If there is a show you believe should have made a particular category, feel free to speak up in the comments section of said category. I would love to hear what you have to say.
