Code Geass is defintly the best show I have ever seen. I don't know about perfect but it's damn well close to it.


Angel beats also makes the list, BUT I think it could have been dragged out longer. The back story for the characters was amazing and I would definitly wanted to have seen the backstory of the rest of the crew.

Both of these are in my opinion a masterpiece and will most likely never be outdone.

Then theres plenty of really good animes, but these 2 stand out the most.

Where to begin. There is no perfect anime, simple as.

Death note except for its ending, should have followed the manga perfectly. That being said I loved how it shows him trying to go back, to re start it.

Future Diary, again not 100% cos the final ep didn't show that ending. Really need to see ova to confirm if it did end that way.

From the new world, closest to perfect. It's only probs were what made it scarier, little info left to fester in imagination, the slow build up lead to twists & turns every sec.
Ultimately, this was close to perfect cos it told the story, we felt for the characters & ended on a satisfying note. Something few anime get to do.

Wolf Children is almost perfect too, i just wished it was longer and showed more of what ame & yuki do now that they are older. Also expected the other residents to have similar secrets like hana. Not really a let down put something I felt they were hinting at.

Crazy thing is there's so much anime I could list here cos they are awesome to me but realistically very few make it to near perfect & even then it doesn't always seem accurate to call it near perfect with obvious flaws which you ccould over look being a fan.

Sword Art Online.

Although I would enjoy seeing the fireworks that would come from naming the above show, I don't believe it myself, so I won't say it.

Actual answers:
Blast of Tempest
Gurren Lagann

Both of these gets 10/10 from me, and are among my personal favorites.

Shows not among my personal favorites, but that I think did exactly what they set out to do perfectly:
Gingitsune
Non Non Biyori

That's right. That's the end. It's not a coincidence that the two not in my personal favorites, but still mentioned here are slice of life. Slice of life play by a different set of rules than other anime, so meeting the criteria is...well, not easier, but just different.

By perfect I would consider everything from the design (not just characters but style of animation, the environment, the quality of the effort and its effectiveness) the way the story is told and where it took me; how well it holds up to adult scrutiny (I'm over 30 so there if it can still impress me then it's ffn good) and that it obeys its own canon without any inconsistency; the story goes through a wide arc and ends in a satisfying way; and how well it relates to society as a whole.

I think that's tough standards- and there are some shows that actually achieve it, for me, that I would share with anyone. They aren't just shows I "like" but more you'd say I like them BECAUSE I consider them to be superb as far as anime goes:
Bubblegum Crisis... everything about it feels grounded in a gritty reality that seems genuinely believable and has a social/political edge that is very strong yet is never once stated. It is violent yet never unpleasant, cute but never stupid, the music is unforgettable (especially the reperformed songs in English by a group in Wilmington) and it has a unique retro feel that will never go away.

Now and Then Here and There- the style of the characters puts people off at first, but it's actually a very effective artistic statement- as are the beautiful sunsets, as is the music. It took several watches and a couple years to finally understand the story's true meaning and the ending. Once I did, realized it was pretty much perfect.
The original Ghost In the Shell Movie.. Oshii's finest work in my opinion; some early cgi but 90% of the amazing backgrounds- all those buildings was DRAWN BY HAND. The way the music and visual experience makes you feel and the awesome action scenes- everything works perfectly- and 52 episodes of a TV series still can't top it.
On that note, maybe Akira too...
