The Top Ten

1 Welcome to the N.H.K.

Manages to encompass the multitude of different things I love about the medium. Sad yet powerful/heartwarming story? Check. Characters that aren't what they appear on the surface? Check. Great pacing? Minus episode one... check.

2 Toradora! Toradora! Toradora! is a series of Japanese light novels written by Yuyuko Takemiya, with illustrations by Yasu. It received an anime adaptation directed by Tatsuyuki Nagai and produced by J.C.Staff that ran from 2008-2009.

The show that made me fall in love with anime, and I show I make sure to watch at least once a year.

3 Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day

Yet another soul crusher, but Anohana gives you this really odd melancholic feel while watching it.

4 Your Lie In April Your Lie In April Your Lie in April, known in Japan as Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso or just simply Kimiuso, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Naoshi Arakawa.

Positively soul crushing, but every scene is just a master class of animation.

5 Chihayafuru Chihayafuru Chihayafuru is a manga series written and illustrated by Yuki Suetsugu, serialised in Be Love and published by Kodansha.

The best sports show out there. Great characters and fantastic animation.

6 Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu

The newest show on the list. This show is just flat-out gripping and enjoyable from start to finish.

7 Hyouka Hyouka

Absolutely breathtaking visuals and a plot that makes you just as curious as the female lead.

8 Baby Steps

Albeit not the best paced sports show, I cannot help but become invested every time I watch Maruo in action.

9 Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood‎

A show that manages to sneak it's way onto most people's best of anime lists. Entertaining, well-paced, and full of fantastic characters.

10 Sakamichi no Apollon

The best musical direction in a show. Short, simple, and effective.
