Definitely Barakamon.

The kinda anime that makes you appreciate life and the simple things we take for granted in our everyday lives?
Yep, this is it for me.

I would say 100% Your Lie in April... The reason being is the sense of closure that you don't get from most anime. Take Angel Beats for instance. Wonderful plot, gorgeous plot, and sound track. I however find most anime fall short at the end of the series and tend to try to cram too much into the last couple episodes. Where as Your Lie in April left me completely fulfilled. The plot was great, the characters were really well made and three dimensional, and I have to say that its the only anime that has truly moved me emotionally. I've watched plenty of tear jerkers, but Your Lie is a moving piece.

Akira
Cowboy Bebop
Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo
Steins: Gate

Not perfect but they represent the pinnacle of anime as there's nothing objectively wrong with them (to me).

No anime, or anything else, is truly perfect. That being said, here are a few that I think come close:

Gurren Lagann-As pure entertainment, it's hard to beat.
FMA: Brotherhood-Epic story, exciting action, great music, parade of memorable characters, satisfying ending. What more could you want?
Spice and Wolf-The show that got me into romance anime. The only complaint I have is that they could adapt more of the novels.
From the New World- Incredibly thoughtful and emotional sci-fi. Not sure if it's perfect, but I think it's criminally underrated. I'll take any chance I can to plug it.

Princess Mononoke is my favorite anime movie, I could watch it back to back and still love it.

Your Lie in April and Angel Beats were perfection; Fate/Zero was close to perfection.

Amen.

Perfection means that something could not be improved on. Anime are commercial productions that are subject to time and resource constraints and other compromises.

Ask the staff of any anime, "If you had more time & resources, could you have done better?", and I have no doubt you could find few that could answer "No" with a straight face.

Fate/Stay Night UW to me was perfect. Amazing art, best animation, song choices were fantastic and character design and story were great. Toradora and The World God only Knows were also perfect because it hits you in the feels and can be a little unexpected.


Couldn't have said it better myself

Whilst I'm of the belief that nothing is perfect, it's difficult for me to uphold that belief when it comes to Steins;Gate. I don't doubt there are things that could have been improved upon, but when I look at the anime, I, personally, can't think of a single thing to improve upon. I loved the music, I loved the characters and the relationships between them, it was nicely animated, and I loved, loved, loved the emotional roller coaster of a story. If Steins;Gate isn't a perfect anime, then it's sure as hell 99.99% of the way there.

Yeah Perfect is a strong word... i don't think there's any perfect anime. Even Fate/Zero that has over the top animation and amazing narrative fails a bit since the writing is more directed to the Fate Series fans.

Mushishi is a strong candidate for my all time fave tho, aside for some flaws in the animation on the later episodes it's just too darn beautiful in every way.

I have a lot of anime that I feel were a perfect experience for me. That doesn't mean I necessarily think they were perfect or even great as an example of the art form, or even that they are one of my favorites, but to me it means they provided an entertainment experience that did not at any point leave me feeling confused, jerked around, unsatisfied or disappointed or even just less than fully immersed. It is also not something I would necessarily expect anyone else to share. A perfect entertainment experience is a personal experience where I was immersed the entire time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Examples from this season of shows that have been a perfect experience for me: Planetarian, Sweetness and Lightning and Re:Zero. There was never a moment in these shows where I was not immersed and invested and all my expectations were delivered on.

Shows still in the running for a perfect experience but not finished yet: Mob Psycho 100.... hmmm, actually, I guess that's it. Tales of Zestiria the X might have made this list but for episodes 5 and 6, which totally broke my immersion and jerked me around with content that was presented as irrelevant to the main story. (Yes, I know it is technically related, but NOTHING within the episodes indicates its relevance to anyone who doesn't have inside knowledge. That's bad storytelling, imo.)

The list of anime I have watched in the past that I consider a perfect experience is rather long and includes anime from just about every genre.
