Sorrow-kun's List of 50 Great Anime of the Decade 2000-2009 & Behind The Nihon Review
Our staff’s review of the decade continues, and today I’ll be taking on the massive task of trying to list the best fifty anime that came out this decade, as I saw them. As is fairly obvious by now, I can only list the anime that I saw, and I’ve taken the policy of not putting ongoing series on the list, even though there are a couple of gems that are still currently airing (such as Cross Game and Kemono no Souja Erin). Also, some of the series on this list started airing in 1999, but ending in 2000. You can find a collection of other lists that have been posted on the blogosphere here, and our good friend gaguri, from Ha Neul Seom (하늘섬) has posted his Top 50 here, which I highly recommend. 50. The concept of having a economics play such a heavy role in an anime’s plotline is utterly unique, but what makes Spice and Wolf really work is the relationship of the two leads. 49. 48. 47. I have a lot of admiration for this anime. 46. 45. What a quirky, uncanny anime this is. 44. 43. 42. 41.
