I've pretty much given up on finding a flawless anime, and accepted that even if I think an anime is flawless it's only because I for some reason cannot see its flaws. But the closest I've seen would probably be Chihayafuru, as practically everything about that series is emaculate. The third season will likely be the best anime I see in the year it's made.



So what makes Chihayafuru like "good" for you?

One liner is good, I do not quite remember.

I've just never seen it screw up, ever. At most I think it might've wandered a little bit during the second season, but I still got through it without a hitch. In terms of what it's trying to do as a story, I think it's delivering on it perfectly to date.

This is from the perspective of "Look at what the anime is trying to do, and knock off points if it stumbles" though. I can only imagine it being docked if someone went "I see what it's trying to do, but think it should be doing something else."

It's like the difference between enjoyment and flawless execution. There are many sports I don't particularly enjoy, but I can still admire talented athletes in that field. I think Chihayafuru is like that, even if someone doesn't like it personally.

Edit:

This does circle back to the whole "being blind to something's faults" though. If I didn't really like Chihayafuru I don't think I'd find faults with it exactly, but I don't think I'd find it especially noteworthy either. But that's just a hypothetical guess.

I probably should have bothered reading the second page... Oh well.

For me: Sakamichi no apollon
I know it doesn't have one of those legendary out there plots that captivated everyone. Its simplicity is one of its best features, in my opinion.

None, because I always find something I perceive as a flaw, whether it be design, execution, inconsistency, wimpy characters, ridiculous plot devices, deus ex machina, use of a cliche, improper use of a cliche, impossible plans working, the MC getting everything he wants or going through the break down and cry scene, or lackluster animation and cgi use.

There's always something.

I consider there to be a difference between my all time favorites and being a perfect 10. Because to be a perfect 10, there has to be absolutely no slow start, no lull in the middle, no fillers, and a perfectly tied ending. In addition, it must have amazing moments, a perfect story and a cadre of fantastic characters. In that regard, there are only a very few, in my opinion:

Kyousogiga The Series (The newest to my all time faves since last week.)
Katanagatari
Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Nodame Cantabile
Now and Then, Here and There
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

My top 5 favorite animes of all time are Hunter X Hunter, Kyousogiga, One Piece, Gintama and Black Lagoon. But, with the exception of Kyousogiga, I wasn't fond of any of their starting episodes, so I can't consider them perfect 10's, no matter how good they became afterwards.

Nothing is perfect to me.

Stuff that comes close:

Revolutionary Girl Utena (9 or 9.5 out of 10)
Hunter x Hunter (2011) (A solid 9 out of 10)
Hajime no Ippo (9 out of 10)
Toradora (9 out of 10)

Grave of the Fireflies is the only thing I would rate 10 out of 10 personally.

Hmm if I would rate something a 5 out of 5 or a 10 out of 10 anime that would probably be the following:

1. Code Geass

Never have a thought of having a mech anime + super mind control abilities blow my mind out. It was one of the best mechas I have ever watched plus the story is really good for me.

2. Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited Hyoubu Kyousuke

Very very underrated show but it's so good. I wonder why people don't like thins.

3. Nerawareta Gakuen

Love the plot and you have to think of what the hell happened here. Screw the haters ^_^

AnimekamiMeh, I have to take this back. Talking about it put me in the mood to rewatch the second season, and there's way too many issues with the meandering pacing in the first cour to hold it up as high as I was. So Chihayafuru goes back on the pile of personal favorites with imperfect executions. The end of the second season must've been really great to pull me out of a story slump this deep without even hardly remembering that it existed at all.

As close to perfect as I can imagine would be Ghost in the Shell. Maybe cliche, but I've seen it at least 20 times and I still enjoy it.

Straight serious 10/10 all-time perfection left-a-long-lasting-impression-maybe-forever would be Clannad. By that I mean both series. Sure I have other '10's like Space Brothers, but there are plenty of comedy anime that I like. I felt I could stress the severity of how high in regard I hold the series by choosing just that one.

The main character wasn't some wimpy dense (who says 'huh?' when girl A makes a move) pervert kid. Which is a rarity among today's anime. The plot-line, I thought, was truly a masterpiece. And if there's one thing to be proud of after watching it is that I didn't cry. Which was really hard not to.
Would definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone for a life-changing experience.

10 out of 10. It left so much of a long lasting impression on me I probably wouldn't ever watch it again haha
