Gintama & Monster are masterpieces. Berserk would easily be the best anime and media of all time if someone adapted it properly. 

 

 

Yakusoku no Neverland  has REALLY impressed me this season.

Was going to make a new thread for a best of the 10s, but since @Haruki posted in here I figured I'd drop my list in here.

 

Was just going to go with a straight 1-25 list, but I felt like there was definitely distance between certain places on my list, so decided to group them together in tiers.

 

Masterpieces

Flowers of Evil

Mushishi Next Passage

Ping Pong the Animation

Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu

The Tatami Galaxy

 

Spectacular

Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Girls Last Tour

Lupin the Third, the Woman Called Fujiko Mine

March Comes in Like a Lion

Puella Magi Madoka Magica

SSSS.Gridman

Steins;Gate

 

Great

Asobi Asobase

Durarara!!

Fate/Zero

Humanity has Declined

K-on!!

Nichijou

Sound of the Sky

 

Good

A Place Further than the Universe

After the Rain

Death Parade

Hanasaku Iroha

Kyousougiga

Run with the Wind

Your Lie in April

 

Honorable Mentions

Bloom into You

Daily Lives of High School Boys

Devilman Crybaby

Flip Flappers

Kemono Friends

Kemurikusa

Kids on the Slope

Laid Back Camp

Land of the Lustrous

Mawaru Penguindrum

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

Shiki

Tsuki ga Kirei

 

Of what I caught this decade, definitely missed some stuff that was long running and never caught up with like Natsume Yujinchou and Chihayafuru. Also missed a ton from 14-17 so definitely could've overlooked something big.

I think it's so wild that flowers of evil got nagahama into anime jail, but glad to see he gets to adapt junji ito's uzumaki this year. Super hyped for that. I think the fact that anime fans are so resistant to anything that dares not be generic cgdct/moe style. shows like flowers/yuasa/tatsuki/land of lustrous/fujiko mine/shaft are what makes anime as a medium so great. the homogenization of anime is worrying, but when someone like tatsuki comes around and proves that you can be unique and popular it gives me hope. 

 

I also don't understand the appeal of made in abyss, easily top 5 worst series I've ever had the displeasure of watching. I mean the list makes a lot of sense to me, lots of really popular series that are in genres that attract anime fans. Just sad to see how shallow a lot of fans are in what they choose to watch. My buddy took a class on anime this past semester and it was quite honestly depressing seeing that most people only appreciate the shounen flavor of the week and feel like the most interesting creatives are boring. I didn't do a list of films, but the fact that tales of princess kaguya is considered boring, when it was the last gift takahata gave us is so sad.

I'll keep saying it. Made in the Abyss is the most overhyped anime ever. While Madoka was good, idt it was that good. Glad to see Shinseki on there tho

tbh i think Madoka is overrated as fuck. Every single good thing it did was done by either Revolutionary Girl Utena or Serial Experiments Lain 

 

I haven't watched Made in Abyss - my impression is that it's very nice stylistically and sad but not much else and, well, medical leave for depression prob shouldn't be watching sad shit.  also the girl who stole $1200 from me an ghosted was super into it

The visual ingenuity of Madoka alone makes it a great show. What shaft did with a pretty average story is what makes it great. Every single time they enter the alternate world, you actually feel like you're in a different show. The way the witches worlds are portrayed gives you this feeling of an old timey grimms fairytale esque world that you've entered, which is so fitting for the story that Madoka tells. The framing, the blocking, every shot is important. Madoka also utilizes great visual storytelling, as the ribbons Madoka wears at the beginning and then gives to Homura at the end is a visual representation of the Japanese concept of 縁 (en), or the way that fate binds people which is quite obviously an important theme of the show. Also it not only has a great soundtrack, but utilizes it in an interesting way, such as to foreshadow events. Honestly the fact people obsess over the Mami death as a Shyamalan esque twist or that people that think wow so dark for le magical girls show or that its a "deconstruction" are missing out on what Madoka did well because that's not what makes the series great. All of those things have been done before.

I can almost get behind that but i feel like there are def shots that exist to make you think there's more to it than there actually is (see also a lot of Monogatari's faffing around) - it's absolutely a visually impressive show and does very well with that. 

 

(and yeah holy the mami death was nothing, fuckin kamina's death was bigger.

 

thats also a knock i have on brotherhood is making maes' death feel way less big than FMA2003)

I dont disagree with this but again we place weight on different things. Animation is often a budget issue. Thats not to say technique doesnt play a big role, and it does in madoka, but im just of the opinion that absent something truly stunning, a show’s story vastly outweighs the visuals.

 

I agree the story is overrated but madoka magica literally flipped the genre on its head by putting legitimate consequences into a genre that otherwise didnt have them, which then becomes comically irrelevant for obv reasons. The obv reasons ruined the show for myself

I think og Bakemonogatari is very similar to Madoka, the story is w.e, but the visuals elevate it to a masterpiece. Every Monogatari after sorta feels like a parody of the Bakemonogatari though. Shaft is really great at that. I think the series that shaft has done best were visually unique both in general, and to other shaft shows.

I sorta disagree, I think that visually creative directors can get around any sort of budgetary limits. Kemono friends was basically a no budget show, and managed to look better than 99% of other shows with higher budgets.
