That wraps up our list of the top 10 anime albums of 2018. Tune in next year when we do it all again. I, for one, am happy to see a strong showing from My Hero Academia. Here’s hoping that they hit another home run this year. The show is a ton of fun, and besides, the world can always use more heroes. Speaking of which, have you checked out our feature on the show’s composer?
