SAO is good, but I don't think it deserves to be #1. - Absolite

I love both Sword Art Online and Sword Art Online II! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Like it but SAO 2 (GGO) is a lot better

SAO for the win!

A very beautiful conclusion to my favorite childhood anime.

4 Blue Exorcist Blue Exorcist Blue Exorcist is an anime series directed by Tensai Okamura and produced by A-1 Pictures, which adapts the Blue Exorcist manga written and illustrated by Kazue Kato.
5 Durarara!! Durarara!!

This is the best anime ever! There should be a season 2! This might even replace Bleach and Naruto if they keep making episodes!

Not even close, Durarara is the best, next list please!

This should be on the top on every anime list on this website.

6 Deadman Wonderland Deadman Wonderland Deadman Wonderland is a Japanese manga series written by Jinsei Kataoka and illustrated by Kazuma Kondou, who also wrote and illustrated the Eureka Seven manga, and published in Shōnen Ace since 2008.

7 Angel Beats! Angel Beats! Angel Beats! is a 13-episode Japanese anime television series produced by P.A.Works and Aniplex and directed by Seiji Kishi.

One of the best animes yet


8 Puella Magi Modoka Magica

It was first watched in Japan during 2013 and was dubbed in English to be watched in America in 2014. It is best known for its emotional moments, more.

My favorite anime of the time with about everything you want out of a anime

10 Steins;Gate Steins;Gate Steins;Gate is a 2011 anime television series created by the animation studio White Fox based on 5pb. and Nitroplus's 2009 video game of the same name, and is part of the Science Adventure franchise.

This is an AMAZING anime. It's about time travel - a character-driven sci-fi anime that does a wonderful job on the characters. This anime will make you laugh at the bantering between the characters, make you cry at the serious twist halfway through the series (and again near the end at the sacrifices the main character had to make, and again at the wonderfully executed romance). I recommend it. To practically everyone.

The Contenders

11 Clannad: After Story
12 Future Diary Future Diary Future Diary is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Sakae Esuno. The plot surrounds a battle royale in which each combatant has a diary with entries from the future. The manga was serialized in the Kadokawa Shoten's Shōnen Ace between January 2006 and December 2010.
13 Black Rock Shooter

BLACK ROCK SHOOTER ALL THE WAY. Ever seen a girl wearing black, has a robotic arm, and has a blue flame of eternal life (that's what I like to call it) in her eye? This girl is called BLACK ROCK SHOOTER. And she will make herself known.

Do you ever see a girl that has the ability to light a flame in her eye ultimately kick butt?! BRS is just too epic to not watch... WHO CAN HOLD A CANNON THAT'S ALMOST 3/4 YOUR SIZE?

Hell yeah black rock shooter is the best anime character EVER nobody beats BRS
