If you’re waiting for a sign to start watching anime, or if you’re looking for show recommendations, Valorant pro player Tyson “TenZ” Ngo shared his most exhaustive anime tier list to date.

The popular streamer, who has watched a plethora of anime in multiple genres, decided to thoroughly go through a list of over 300 titles, ranking them from “God Tier” all the way down to shows he hasn’t seen yet.

TenZ’s tier list tells us that he enjoys a mix of both mainstream shows and lesser-known anime. He’s mentioned multiple times that he’s a huge fan of action-adventure shows Hunter x Hunter and Attack on Titan.

Surprisingly, he also ranked obscure titles like Classroom of the Elite, Inuyashiki, and Orange high up on his tier list.
