I'll preface this with the fact that there are still a handful of shows that I've heard extremely great things about that I've yet to watch so if there's something obvious I'm missing chances are I'm partway through or haven't started.

 

1. Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei (2010)

2. Sora no Woto (2010)

3. Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita (2012)

4. Ping Pong the Animation (2014)

5. Mushishi (2014)

6. Nichijou (2011)

7. Monogatari Series: Second Season (2013)

8. Steins;Gate (2011)

9. Durarara!! (2010)

10. Gugure! Kokkuri-san (2014)

1.   Steins; Gate (2011)

2.   Clannad After Story (2008-2009) (not really 5 years but so good)

3.   Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (2009) (again, not really 5 years but close enough)

4.   Hunter x Hunter (2011)

5.   Hajime no Ippo: Rising (2013)

6.   Madoka Magica (2011)

7.   Shiki (2010)

8.   Parasyte (2014)

9.   Kuroko no Basket Season 2 (2013)

10. Hanamaru Kindergarten (2010)

 

Standout in last 5 (and all time) is Steins; Gate. It mixes the feels of Clannad AS with the action and drama of FMA:B, as well as having some amazing character development as we see the main character's facade crumble as he no longer needs it as a crutch to interact with people.

For many, many people, that is the equivalent of simply asking 'what is your top 10 anime of all time'. Many people includes me but well I'll try.

 

In no real order besides 1. and 2. :

 

1. Kara no Kyoukai(all 8 movies)

2. Baccano

3. Haruhi(It isn't as great in hindsight but I choose to believe in the feelings I held while I watched the show, rather than the feelings I hold now)

4. Shirobako

5. Bakemonogatari

6. Steins;Gate

7. Denpa Teki na Kanojo

8. Bokurano

9. Madoka

10. Samurai Flamenco(100% serious)

I hope you're implying that many have only seen recent anime and not that the recent animes are overall better than the classical ones, because if you are, I couldn't disagree more.

No, no, of course not. If I was trying to imply the latter then I wouldn't have said the first 4 words.

 

I do however, not think that old shows are necessarily better than recent ones.

Yeah I think nostalgia can sometimes play a part in making older animes seem that little bit better.

 

Then again, on the flipped of the argument... I don't see many/any animes which rival the quality of Monster or that timeless class of Kenshin OVA etc. 

 

I've recently been watching the old Kenshin TV show and the first 60 episodes were surprisingly good.

There's nothing surprising about it. Kenshin is amazing. I pretty much love everything about it artistically and direction wise but the one thing that improved my experience when I revisited the series 3 years ago, was that I was now aware how historically and culturally valuable the story is.

If you think the majority of the last 6 years gets close to the standards of any 5 year period between the 1995-2010 you're on some serious drugs

i would seriously suggest watching the original. you could always watch the newer version after but i doubt you will want to do the reverse.

Last 6 years? Probably not. Last 10, sure.

 

Again, all I'm saying is that i doubt many people have seen anything older than what's aired in the last 10 years, maybe excluding the big three.

well the OP does say 5 years n such, you're cheating a bit by including Baccano.  I'd def rate 2010, and especially 2012 to present as a really shitty period for anime overall, with only occasional series like Ping Pong that make you go "man this is why I watch Japanese cartoons."  

 

 

And um, yea plenty of people are drawn to the old stuff, largely to the "big names."  Gundam Wing, Evangelion, Dragonball Z, Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell.  5 animes of the top of my head that when I read what I've written again looks like a top 5 of all time list, and this is all 1990s and turn of the millenium stuff.  

 

Plenty of people chase the old series looking for glorious quality, the same way people who were born in 1993 have generally all seen the Godfather, and all the Star Wars movies, even if you weren't born in 1974.  You were looking for quality.

Holy shit I'm illiterate. I'm sorry, that was my bad. A lot of what I listed were within the 2005-2010 timeframe. For some reason I thought it said 10 years.

2007 was where it peaked and it's been downhill since.

 

well FMAB Brotherhood was in 2009 so I've been measuring from when that show stopped airing really.

Maybe a better topic would be top 5-10 anime per year just to see the trends in quality. 

 

Sadly I don't have the knowledge to really contribute to a debate like that.

If you wanted to do a year by year comparison the best way would probably be to pull data off My anime list or something or rather, but it's not so much the top 10 series' even as the fact taht the ground level stuff has gone absolutely totally to utter shit, and it's only the headliner anime that are even watchable
