Anime of the Decade time!

Same principle as Anime of the Year, only this time were celebrating the past 10 years of anime.
So the rules will be familiar for regular voters. This topic is more or less for everyone to discuss their favourite stuff.

Oh uh, and for shows with multiple seasons, if they're sequels combine them as it's the same story. Spinoffs can count separately.

Quick Rules:

Voting is open until until Sunday 19th January.
PM your ballot and I will tally the results.
On each ballot vote for what you thought was best in a category, with 1st place getting the most points and so on.
Were again going with the category A/B split.

The awards:

Category A (The major categories)

Anime of the Decade
  • Best overall anime
Best Character Male/Female
  • Best character male or female, not limited to just main characters.
Best Drama/Comedy
  • Best show that's categorised as either a drama or a comedy.
Best Opening
  • Best opening song of the decade (try to factor in the whole 90 second song + animation)
Best Ending
  • Best ending song of the decade
Category B

Fight of the Decade
  • Best overall battle, can include sporting contests or other competitive games.
Best Couple
  • Characters who had the best chemistry with each other. Does not have to be a romantic pair.
Best Story
  • Show that had the best story
Studio of the Decade
  • Who made all the cool shit you liked best
Best Cast
  • Show that had best overall ensemble
Best Visuals
  • This is just a flat out, which show did you think looked nice?
Best Villain
  • Top bad guy/girl
Best Film
  • If a Blu-Ray's out and subs are readily available, then go for it.

At first I thought, yes Kaiji Season 2 was in 2011, assuming that's eligible I could submit it for best OP, but... there are too many good openings. Definitely going to give this some thought.

Well with best film, you can submit characters for the orinal stuff.

I wouldn't accept a Haruhi nom for best female based on Disappearance, but I would accept for any character from say a Ghibli flick.

Though I guess Haruhi characters can qualify via the Nagato-anime as there's enough differences.

I don't know how bad the Nagato one got since I dropped it halfway through, it was more meh than outright bad at that point.

But the Opening category could a tough nut.

Ending, off the top of my head, Madoka, DRRR, K-On, From the New World and HxH have some good ones.

Bakemonogatari's first ED is the best, but debuted in 09, so that's out the window.

Kara no Kyoukai's main seven were all 2009 or earlier, so I intended to leave it off entirely even though the epilogue and Mirai Fukuin were both this decade. If I can use it as an excuse to nominate Ryougi for things I'm not gonna complain though

No Game No Life Zero and the WIXOSS recap movie had utterly fantastic ending themes though, and would definitely be included on any ballot I sent.

Since the video has to be accurate to the source, do you have an actual link for Love Your Enemies? I feel like it doesn't exist on the Internet, except for the music video.

Oh as much as I like it, Shiki's theme can't count.

But thinking on it, Dragon Ball Super had a good ED for the Broly movie and I think one of the Sword Art Online films, not sure which has a good ED.

Radwimps' Zenzenzen is neither an OP or ED so although it's awesome, it can't count.
I uh may have to research if Uchiage Hanabi is either of those, I heard the movie was so bad I never bothered to check.

YOOOOOOOOOOOO, ED Credits, Regaro with the killer suggestion. Daoko? Great! Yonezu Kenshi? Great!
No wonder this song's got near 300m views on the youtube.

As far as I can recall, there isn't really a video and the song literally just plays over a text-only credits scroll. This should only be a dealbreaker for people with bad taste.

I'll try to double check that at some point this week.

Not the theme. The character herself. And I didn't intend to because I didn't expect she was eligible for anything (And I would've actively complained if she was, as much as I love her)

Oh yeah, she won't count.

For long running series that started pre-2009, like say Detective Conan or Naruto Shippuden, characters are ineligible unless they made their full debut post 2010.

So Goku/Vegeta are out, but Beerus is in.

Monogatari characters are all around eligible.

S2 was the worst season of Minami-ke. That's the one where they invented a filler character and made him the protagonist.

It's actually split down the middle. There are 20 episodes and three "movies" each equivalent to two episodes in length.
