From the top of my head, probably Steins;Gate, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, PMMM, and likely Attack on Titan. As for the near future though (in terms of series that have not aired yet), I predict Space Dandy would be a classic.

For a modern series to be classic though, I'd say they would have to be influential to future generations to come in anime production.

sadly, most wouldn't be. maybe once the hype wears off and people go back to re-watch it, they'll realize the series has some serious flaws.....

My gut reaction will be Steins Gate, Madoka Magica and Fate Zero since they some of the most acclaimed anime recently.

Gotta agree with stark700 and Perzivel about Steins;Gate. That show is brilliant. About as close to a modern classic for its genre as it comes.

I feel like anime is alot like current music. Alot of people really complain that music these days are not up to par with the days of Zeppelin, Radiohead, Nirvana, Guns n Roses, etc. And that's true for anime as well. Attack on Titan is alright and probably the closest one to being considered "Classic" but it's definitely not nearly on the same intellectual level as shows like Neon Genesis, FMA, or Code Geass. To be honest, I don't think many animes these days will be considered "Classics" it's just a bad phase but I'm sure back in the old days, there were a sea of anime and only a few shining stars. But in all honesty, many people have said that there hasn't been a great anime in the last 5 years. We just gotta wait.

I mean look at Cartoons these days, the only thing right now that people love is Legend of Korra, but Cartoon Network has really been lacking in the brilliant shows it once had: Justice League, Batman, etc. So it's not just anime


Yeah...except...this is what people have been saying about everything, since the beginning of time. Or the beginning of recorded history, anyway. Hell, Socrates complained about the beginning of recorded history--he literally thought writing was a foolish invention by less-cultured younger folks. And this is no different.

NGE, FMA, and Code Geass are...pretty good? There are plenty of shows already listed in this thread that are just as good, or better. Madoka Magica is similar to NGE, but vastly better and more well-executed. FMA wasn't my kind of thing, but I'd put, say, AoT at about the same level. Geass is basically getting a remake in the form of Valvrave.

Honestly, a lot of older shows were kinda awkwardly directed, because the medium was still relatively new and they didn't quite know what to do with it. That's less true now. Animation quality has generally improved, though it might look worse if you're really averse to CGI. As with music, more anime is being produced now, so there may be a somewhat lower concentration of good stuff? I'm not sure that's really true, though.

Anyway, just from looking through a list of recent shows: Madoka, Steins;Gate, Ano Hana, Tiger and Bunny, Penguindrum, Fate/Zero, Hyouka, Space Brothers, Humanity has Declined, Shin Sekai Yori, Sakurasou, Zetsuen no Tempest... That's not even getting to this year. I didn't personally like all of those, but they all seem to have staying power.

I didn't want to say it, seeing as it's my all time favorite show & I'm quite biased. But if you want an intellectual, beautifully-written and executed show, I haven't seen many other shows that can compare to Zetsuen no Tempest. Imo, it has the artistic touch and thought put into it to make it a classic.

Not Madoka Magica.


Puella Magi Madoka Magica is one of the few only deconstruction anime out there if it is not the best anime out it is very close to it.

2010+ future Classics

1. Puella Magi Madoka Magica (powerful deconstruction of the genre)
2. Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi we Mada Shiranai Anohana (a tale of friendship like no other)
3. Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyobi Sunday without God (an amazing world full of surprises and adventure)
4. Sakamichi no Apollon Kids on a Slope (coming of age and its basically Jazz the anime)
5. Enjeru Bitsu! Angel Beats (Had a lot of issues but still a solid contender)

Usagi Drop

it's not one of those shows that is going to go on the top of most people's "Fav's List" but it is a show that I think can stand the test of time. the art is fantastic and there is a universal feel to the story that I think will still have an endearing quality a hundred years from now.

There's a flaw in this short-term logic. Often, much of the sub-par music, cartoons, and anime from an era simply cease to exist twenty years later due to low sales over time.
If something continues to sell, it's either because it was recently on TV/radio, still has merchandise in stores, recently got re-released on DVD/BR/CD/Digital, or IS a classic.

A great majority of 70s-80s rock bands were abysmal, but now you'd have to go out of your way to hear their music.
The same holds true for cartoons and anime.

Over time, much of the anime you see now will be filtered as they fail to generate income, and what's left is either long-running or classic anime.
There will be casualties (companies shutting down, shows going under the radar, no license holders, etc), but that's how entertainment works.

Some of it lately does seem like the Japanese are more force feeding their culture rather than providing a good show. Then again, a vast majority of American shows have seem to be force feeding propaganda about current events too. It seems like people are trying to brainwash others lately.

Attack On Titan if goes the way FML:Brotherhood and makes good long plot will. Fate ZERO is already in my mind a legend. Steins Gate too. Booth are really good DUBs which will help them in the west. Psyco Pass I think will be reconized but needs those dubs to something else in order for it to pull if off.

Do want a out of the blue new anime too become a legend a Kill La Kill might be that but then again who is making already kind did that... so I will keep looking.

I definitely agree with everyone on Steins;Gate. It's extremely popular, very original, and pretty intelligent. In my honest opinion, it's one of the few anime that actually deserves the praise it gets.




Someone else mentioned My Ordinary Life, which is easily my #1 for slice of life comedy(doesn't really say much but still). However, I'm not 100% sure it's popular enough that people will look back on it. I hope they do because it really is just an incredibly well done series.




Another might be the Monogatari Series. Nisemonogatari (arguably not as good as Bakemonogatari which came out in 2009) can probably survive off the toothbrush scene alone. And of course, we have the currently running Monogatari Series Second Season which has put out absolutely phenomenal content almost every single episode. Unless the series crashes and burns out of nowhere I can totally see this series surviving the test of time.
