My first top anime list EVER (it's soo hard to put one over another):

My favorites are:

1. Kanon
2. Haruhi (including THE movie)
3. Clannad (including After Story)
4. Hyouka
5. Chuunibyou

Honorable Mentions: FMP: Fumoffu & Nichijou

Haven't seen Tamako Market or Second Raid; only seen one episode of Free, Lucky Star, K-on, Air, and... Kyoukai's no out yet.

1. Clannad
2. Kanon
3. Haruhi

I have either disliked or never seen everything else.

Side note, wasn't Little Busters! a Kyoto Anni work? I could have sworn is was. If so, then Little Busters! is number 2 and everything under it is shifted down.

1. Kanon 2006 - I really like all of the characters, and I really feel for them with the somewhat unique ordeals they have to go through. I'm definitely glad it ended the way it did.

2. Lucky Star - I like the particular style of humor it employs, the kinds of things the characters talk about, and their perspective on those things (especially Konata's perspective). Watching it makes me feel like I'm back in high school, and for me, that's a good thing.

3. Nichijou - I like wacky comedies, and this is about as wacky as they come. They didn't hold much (if anything) back, and I'm glad they didn't, or this anime wouldn't be what it is.

4. Clannad/Clannad After Story - I found it to be hilarious at times yet packed with emotion at other times. The only problem I have with it is the pacing; I felt like season 1 was a little too compact and needed a bit more time to flesh out its characters and relationships some more, and I felt like After Story was a little too drawn out. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I didn't like how season 1 was kind of secretly a harem.

5. Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai - I found the theme of middle school delusions to be interesting, and I felt the characters were good 'vessels,' for lack of a better word, for the theme. But I also felt the romance was a little rushed; I just find it hard to believe that Rikka, with her crazy delusions, could understand her feelings so well in such a short period of time when there are plenty of non-delusional high school students who can't.

I guess I'll also mention K-ON!, specifically that I liked season 1 and the movie, but not season 2, and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, which I felt was off-and-on in both seasons; I loved the movie, though.

1. Haruhi Suzumiya
2. Lucky Star
3. Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!
4. K-On!
5. Clannad

That thing about KyoAni is that their stuff is so guaranteed to be bittersweet that I can hardly bring myself to watch what they make. Clannad is good, but man... enjoyable is not quite the word. Even K-On!! (2nd season) was so heavy handed with the whole "We could be separated once we go off to college" deal that I couldn't bear to watch it.

Haruhi is best, because it incorporates its dramatic elements so well (and because it's genius anyway). Lucky Star is also one of my favorites because it does pure slice-of-life better than any other show I've seen.

Also I haven't seen FMP... I should get on that.

1. Haruhi Suzumiya (Season 1, 2, and movie). The first time I watched this anime I was sort of indifferent towards it. However I kept thinking about it, rewatched it, watched the movie, then I got hooked on the Light Novels. It really grew on me.

2. Clannad (and After Story). I like it when things evoke an emotional response from me as I feel like I am sometimes a slightly emotionless person. And considering that this anime made me an emotional wreck for about two weeks after I watched it, I can't help but consider it one of my favorite anime series. I feel like a slightly different and maybe even better person for having watched Clannad, I don't know why, but it's true.

3. Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! So much adorable moe cuteness. I absolutely love this series, moe haters be damned- I can't get enough of it!

4. Lucky Star. At this point in the game it's sort of a toss up between several series. I'm going with Lucky Star for number 4 though because I really do love slice of life, and Lucky Star is a slice of life series at its finest.

5. Hyouka. I really enjoyed this one. The animation was great, the characters were pretty likable, and even though they were mostly meaningless, I found the mysteries intriguing and fun to watch. I wish this would get a second season, even if they have to make it filler due to lack of source material.

I also enjoyed K-On (the first season mostly) and Kanon quite a bit as my next favorites.

As far as the rest of their catalog goes, I could take them or leave them. Nichijou, Tamako Market, Free!, Air, and FMP are all series that I'm sort of indifferent about.

Free! is the only one I've watched... but since I'm not a fan of "moe" anime or sad stories then I probably wouldn't care for the rest anyway

Do you perhaps have a list of KyoAni's shows? I don't remember what I've watched that is from them and not from them.


I got one.


Nice chart. I think the only thing that might be missing there would be a new season of Tamako Market.

I dropped it after one episode and I see that nobody has voted for it yet... So does anyone actually like Tamako Market?
