I need to go over the first half of the decade to get my obvious pushes. I think the opening Salvo lost hit most of it, but can't be too careful. Mob and Lustrous will get big pushes, Re:Zero, Madoka, S;G. Still at work so can't get too hard into it. I need to refresh myself on Monogatari feelings, I've missed the last few seasons, but man was it strong.

I don't usually give any priority to typical shounen in these things, HxH may be the exception.

A lot of my favorite OPs or EDs I listen to the full song and let that taint my perspective, but some of them aren't all that visually interesting, so I'm trying to be more objective there and look for a good combination.

Best ED was a slam dunk though.

About to start making a general list for what I'm gonna consider for categories, sans OP/ED since those aren't tied into show quality.

91 anime aired in 2010. What a different time.

Same, going to need to review and think that one over a bit. The only ones that immediately come to mind (which I would always listen to their entirety) from the decade were the Season 2 AoT and a couple from DB Super.

I am having a real crisis of faith of wanting to give high marks to Tomoko Kuroki, but none of the content in mind is from the anime.

I'm up to 2016, and I think Watamote is the anime I have turned on negatively the most.

It does, but has significantly less of an impact.
Movies can trade animation for having the full song too.

How you weigh criteria is up to you.

OP top 5 for the decade is KILLING ME.

For ED so far I have Flip Flappers, Kekkai Sensen...this is gonna be tougher.

Some people I've got for some categories where I feel like I'm missing a few that might be better:

Villain:
Dio (Jojo)
Altair (ReCreators)
Magane Chikujouin (ReCreators)

Who people got here? Not thinking of a whole ton of great villains this decade. Gilles might be a fun pick, but he's not quite on that level.

Cast:
Monogatari
Shiki
JJBA
Madoka Magica
Steins;Gate

Would all JJBA count together for these categories, or should they be separated into separate series?

Best Couple
Araragi x Senjougahara (Monogatari)
Sora x Shiro (NGNL)
Goda x Rinko (Ore Monogatari)
Arata x Chizuru (ReLife)

Think I might skip Sora x Shiro for the actual romantic couples though. I won't be using Monogatari for the male/female character categories since I don't feel like it's really fair there (except later characters, and I'm the only Gaen/Ougi fan so I'll pick other girls I love there), but it's fair game for the other categories IMO.

Fight of the Decade
Re:Creators final battle
Fate/Apocrypha: Mordred/Semiramis
Fate/Stay Night Heavens Feel 2: Saber Alter vs. Berserker
Hunter x Hunter: Netero vs. Meruem
JJBA: Joseph vs. Kars

Netero vs. Meruem's the only one I'm 100% sure on, though the others are all great.

Best Male Character
Sora (No Game No Life)
Takeo Gouda (My Love Story!!)
Sakuta Azusagawa (Rascal)
Subaru (Re:Zero)
Hachiman Hikigaya
Joseph Joestar
Keima Katsuragi
Rintaro Okabe

I remember struggling every year to figure out nominations for best male. Hopefully remembered all the good ones, but maybe not?

At a glance as far as villains go...

Magane and Altair are good picks tbh. I'm also an Overhaul fan but idk if he's good enough to get on my ballot. My #1 is probably Squealer from Shin Sekai Yori but iirc you hated that character.

...Does Kaiki count as a villain?

Meruem has some great scenes but I dunno if I wanna vote him there. I wasn't really into him for the first half or so of his screentime. Pitou was kinda more intimidating as a villain too.

Carol is definitely a cool villain.

I think Kaiki would count as a villain, personally?

Yeah I'd put Kaiki as a villain, but I like him so much he might be on my top characters list. Def helps Monogatari in the cast department along with a slew of cool characters.

Was thinking Kyubei would get some traction.

Squealer(From the new World) was one of the guys I loved to hate.
For shonen stuff, Shigaraki (MHA) is up there for me, though for HxH I'd usually favour Hisoka.

I'm not even sure who I liked more between Kotomine and Gilgamesh for villains.

The thing is, I haven't seen DRRR past Season 2, so I don't know if Izaya went full blown villain or not.
From what I saw, he's not really a villain.

I agree with Crono that Wareta Ringo's ED is up there, but if you're gonna mention DRRR, you gotta also have Trust Me in mind!

It was brought up earlier but Problem Children's ED is growing on me real quick.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QjTngci-60

I watch Gintama...so I'm one of those casuals who likes:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwv_ERDCjDk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXsLHGOFNV0

While I think in the end I'll settle for Raise your Flag for MWAM OPs, the IBO ED's something I liked as well

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbTsghxSGgU

But as I'm a big fan of Yuzu, that HxH ED's still in play

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waW3LjX-y4E

I'm also trying to fit in the Tanya ED somewhere

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ow0b-Crmr1Q

But again, almost everything's playing second fiddle to Uchiage Hanabi, unless something else really obvious has slipped my mind. Such a darn shame the best Monogatari ED is just outside the scope.

Oh wait no, forgot the MomoClo ED

Izaya is pretty villainous I think. He's an antagonist and a bad person who does bad things. Yeah maybe there's a greater villain, but that doesn't preclude him also being one. Hell, Askeladd won best villain for 2019 and I think that's way more dubious than whether Izaya is.

Aaaaand EDs. Both of these were a nightmare. Ha dtl cut so many OPs. At least for EDs I only cut 2. Psycho-Pass ED1 is incredible. But Refrain Boy's animation put it ahead. Anohana felt like a lock, until I realized that my attachment to that song has absolutely nothing to do with it playing over the ED, and is exclusively from the lead ins and when it's inserted. I had never even watched the ED until now.

It may take Refrain Boy's place by the time I submit, but I'm being honest it's me trying to separate "I love how dumb this is" from "I actually think this is good". It's the same reason I didn't put PopTepic in OP.
