I'll pick a few that at least in my current state of mind seem excellent at what they do:

Charlotte -- It just seemed very nicely self contained as a single season anime that actually had an ending. Had a lot of ups and downs crammed in there effectively: Impressive for a single season.
Wolf Children -- Beautiful. Such joy with just enough other emotions for contrast, and truly great character development. Allison & Lillia was also up there: truly fantastic. As far as characters and their interactions go, Hourou Musuko up there, but I won't give it the spot as the manga is better in my opinion.
Yuru Yuri -- So fun.
Kino No Tabi: The Beautiful World -- Such a consistent relatable character in so many interesting places. (I'm not putting Spice and Wolf and the Journey anime here, since the anime left me wanting more - I'd list it here if we were listing books).
Your lie in April -- The emotions and character interactions were great, and the ending left me satisfied. Kokoro Connect was also up there. If we were doing VNs, Narcissu 1st & 2nd would go here (Its free: go play it if you like emotional content/crying).
Shigofumi: Letters from the Departed -- It hurts just right.
Honey & Clover -- I don't remember it well, but I really liked it. Time for a re-watch I think.
Puella Magi Madoka Magica -- I gotta throw in a magical girl show right?
Kore Wa Zombie Desuka? -- A fantastic absurdist comedy. There is more of it than there is Fooly Cooly, so I'll go with it.
Gurren lagann -- The most Shōnen, a perfect Shōnen. Such spiral.

I feel bad not giving Miyazaki a spot: his stuff is fantastic, but Wolf Children it taking the spot on my list.

I have a hard time picking things out as I manage to ignore most of the problems with shows when I watch them. Its great for the enjoyment, but not great when trying to spot perfection.

It's hard for me to look at any show as "perfect", but here are some I'd put high up there (in no particular order):

*Baccano

*Wolf's Rain

*Yu Yu Hakusho

*Erased

*Fullmetal Alchemist '03 (I haven't seen very much of Brotherhood, but I feel like it couldn't replace the original in my heart. Such nostalgia..and I love the story and the characters. It's certainly not perfect though..I know it has some issues. I can't help but love it though.)

*Soul Eater

Mushishi.

I'd say Baccano, but they teased an alcatraz arc and then the show ended. I want that alcatraz arc.

Rakugo.
DEEN must have been replaced with aliens to get such a well made show.

Ramenman or Trigun, because I love light-hearted action stuff.

After watching hundreds of anime, I think the only one's that come to mind are Ghost in the Shell and Akira.

I found the pacing to be done well, the artwork is acceptable, audio is good, stories are good, and unlike other anime, they make you think

I find too many serialized anime have blatant plot holes, unnecessary filler, annoying characters, etcetc, but Akira and the first GITS movie were short and sweet imo.

Black Rock Shooter and Nekomonogatari: Black are the only anime I've ever watched that I couldn't personally find flaws with.

I don't think anything's flawless, but Code Geass and K have such strong positive points (character writing) that push my rating for them far above 10/10, so I would consider them perfect.
