Japanator's Top 50 Anime of the Decade: #10 to #1

We're at the end of the line, folks. You've been riding with us all week as we counted down our picks for the top 50 anime of the last ten years. #50-#41, #40-#31, #30-#21 and #20-#11 are all done. You might have some complai...

This week, it will be the end of the first decade of the 21st century. To celebrate this milestone, we here at Japanator picked the best fifty anime of the last ten years (the best of the ’00s!). The only rule of this week-long series is that each title was released between 2000 and today.

We're getting down to the wire here. After counting down #50-#41, #40-#31 and #30-#21, we're entering life-or-death territory here. Surely there will be a horse head in my bed tomorrow morning because X series wasn't at X place. But, that's what happens.

The shows we have here, ranked from #20 down to #11, are important to watch in your career as an anime fan. A lot of what we have here are shows that will touch your heart, move you, and cause you to cry uncontrollably. That sort of emotion is what we look for when we want something truly satisfying.

I hope you enjoy the list we've got down below, and I look forward to revealing our top ten titles from the last ten years tomorrow, as we step into 2010. Thanks for sticking with us this far!

We're entering serious business territory here. We've counted down from #50-#41 and #40-#31 already, and now it's time to dive right into the midsection and make our way towards the top twenty titles of the last ten years. Isn't it exciting? Can you feel your blood boiling already?

Well, just wait until you make your way through this next section of our lists. I'm glad to see you all fervently debating our lists, and I appreciate your efforts in the cblogs. I'd like to see more, and hopefully I'll get to hear your own votes for top series of the decade once our list is finished.

Now that we're breaking more ground, a few more movies are popping up. This time, there are three films on the list. Will there be more later on? You better believe it. So, let's get into this next section of our list and debate away!

Now that we've tackled the tail-end of our top 50 list, it's time to start heading towards its midsection, with those titles that have been pretty darn amazing over the last ten years. We've certainly got your gears going thus far, so be sure to continue the discussion. I'm really enjoying hearing your thoughts.

The way things worked in our list is each member of the staff voted for their top ten titles of the decade. Each of those items were assigned points, and then we ranked them all. I did some re-arranging and placement, but the order of the list is the general consensus of the staff here at Japanator. Some shows made it high because a lot of the members of the staff thought it was moderately important. Others made it because a writer or two put it at the top of their list.

So, that's how things work here. Let's get into the next part of the list!

This week, it will be the end of the first decade of the 21st century. To celebrate this milestone, we here at Japanator picked the best fifty anime of the last ten years (the best of the ’00s!). The only rule of this week-long series is that each title was released between 2000 and today.

Now that we're at the end of not only 2009 but the first decade of the 21st century, we here at Japanator thought that there's no better way to celebrate than with a list. In this case, we're counting down the top fifty anime titles of the past ten years, as voted on by the staff.

A mix of personal preferences and earth-shattering titles, we invite you to come and discuss with us which series you believe are the most important, which ones we got utterly wrong (because you're list is right) and take a guess at what the staff voted on.

We'll be continuing this series all week, with the first day of the new decade bringing to light the ten best titles of the last ten years. So, follow me after the jump to see the first batch of titles!
