Anime of the Year 2010-II Spring - Working!!

Several borderline masterpieces spotted - Kaichou wa Maid-sama! , Working!! and Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail with Working!! taking a tender place in my heart.   1. Angel Beats! Angel Beats!(エンジェルビーツ!)  [P.A. Works] (Finished 13/13) Tags: School Drama, Supernatural Death is one of many mysteries that has left humanity in the dark since the dawn of

Anime of the Year 2009-IV Fall - Ibara no Ou

It happens so that only Sunrise movie Ibara no Ou was more or less curious for me.   1. Fairy Tail FAIRY TAIL(フェアリーテイル)  [Satelight, A-1 Pictures] (Finished 3/175) Tags: Shounen Action, Adventure, Fantasy  In the enchanted Kingdom of Fiore, the lively Lucy Heartfilia has one wish: to join the renowned Fairy Tail—one of the many magical wizard guilds scat

Anime of the Year 2009-II Spring - Souten Kouro

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu (2009) and Souten Kouro are my favorites in Spring 2009. K-On! and Shangri-La are following slightly behind.   1. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood 鋼の錬金術師 FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST [Bones] (Finished 1/64) Tags: Shounen Military Action, Adventure, Drama, Fantasy After a horrific alchemy experiment goes wrong in the Elric household, bro

Anime of the Year 2009-I Winter - Druaga no Tou: The Sword of Uruk

Sequel Druaga no Tou: The Sword of Uruk is the only contestant this small season.   1. Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger はじめの一歩 新シリーズ [Madhouse] (Finished 1/26) Tags: Shounen Combat Sports Japanese Featherweight Champion Ippo Makunouchi has successfully defended and retained his title. Meanwhile, his rival, Ichirou Miyata, has resurfaced in Ja

Anime of the Year 2008-IV Fall - Toradora!

Toradora! is the queeen of tsundere and a great anime, but Tentai Senshi Sunred is one of the best parody comedies out there despite seemingly low popularity.    1. Toradora! とらドラ!  [J.C.Staff] (Finished 25/25) Tags: Love Polygon, School Drama, Romance Ryuuji Takasu is a gentle high school student with a love for housework; but in

Anime of the Year 2008-II Spring - Druaga no Tou: The Aegis of Uruk

Druaga no Tou: The Aegis of Uruk is a great inspiring fantasy . Also found Kure-nai enjoyable.    1. Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch R2 Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ 続編  [Sunrise] (Finished 25/25) Tags: Mecha, Military, Super Power Action, Award Winning, Drama, Sci-Fi One year has passed since the Black

Anime of the Year 2007-IV Fall - Minami-ke

Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor , Minami-ke and Genshiken 2 are all considered minor masterpieces by me, but two of them had some representation earlier, so only Minami-ke is fresh new.    1. Clannad [Kyoto Animation] (Finished 23/23) Tags: School Drama, Romance, Supernatural  Tomoya Okazaki is a delinquent who finds life dull and believes he'll

Anime of the Year 2007-II Spring - Lucky☆Star

I was going to never rate comedies highly, but Lucky☆Star is more than a comedy, it's a meta-comedy and is enjoyable on many layers. Claymore is only slightly behind. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Bokura no definitely deserve a mention, but these are more flawed works.   1. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Gurren Lagann 天元突破グレンラガン [Gainax] (Finished 27/27) Tags: Mecha Action, Adventure, Aw

Anime of the Year 2006-II Spring - Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu is revolutionary anime in several ways, so for me it has the upper hand over Black Lagoon which is also a great masterpiece, but in more mundane , complex and adult way. Lots of titles in Spring season, but I can't vouch for the rest.   1. Ouran Koukou Host Club Ouran High School Host Club 桜蘭高校ホスト部 [Bones] (Finished 1/26) Tags: Shoujo Crossdressing, Reverse

Anime of the Year 2005-III Summer - Koukaku Kidoutai: Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man

Koukaku Kidoutai: Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man is inevitably the winner, but for a change there two more small masterpieces - Ichigo Mashimaro and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children   1. Shuffle! SHUFFLE! (シャッフル!) [asread.] (Finished 3/24) Tags: Seinen Harem, School Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Romance, Ecchi In present times, Gods and De

Anime of the Year 2005-I Winter - Karas

Slow beginning of the year, and among decent ones Karas is at least memorable   1. Air   [Kyoto Animation] (Finished 12/12) Tags: Drama, Romance, Supernatural  Yukito Kunisaki is on a journey in search of the Winged Maiden who was bound to the sky centuries ago, after hearing an old childhood tale from his mother. As Yukito shows his puppet show to pe

Anime of the Year 2004-II Spring - Gantz

Gantz is the anime I truly love with all its weak sides. Samurai Champloo and Appleseed (Movie) should be noticed as well.   1. Samurai Champloo サムライチャンプルー  [Manglobe] (Finished 26/26) Tags: Historical, Samurai Action, Adventure, Comedy Fuu Kasumi is a young and clumsy waitress who spends her days peacefully working in a small teahouse. That is, until she a
