Anime of the Year 2008-II Spring - Druaga no Tou: The Aegis of Uruk

May 28, 2023
Druaga no Tou: The Aegis of Uruk is a great inspiring fantasy . Also found Kure-nai enjoyable. 

Anime of the Year 2008-I Winter - Ookami to Koushinryou

May 23, 2023
Ookami to Koushinryou is the only bright spot in this short season.

Anime of the Year 2007-IV Fall - Minami-ke

May 21, 2023
Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor , Minami-ke and Genshiken 2 are all considered minor masterpieces by me, but two of them had some representation earlier, so only Minami-ke is fresh new. 

Anime of the Year 2007-III Summer - Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

May 17, 2023
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei , Stranger: Mukou Hadan and Piano no Mori all got minor masterpiece scores from me. Don't want to choose, so series wins over movies.

Anime of the Year 2007-II Spring - Lucky☆Star

May 13, 2023
I was going to never rate comedies highly, but Lucky☆Star is more than a comedy, it's a meta-comedy and is enjoyable on many layers. Claymore is only slightly behind. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann and Bokura no definitely deserve a mention, but these are more flawed works.

Anime of the Year 2007-I Winter - Nodame Cantabile

May 05, 2023
Nodame Cantabile is the only masterpiece in this short season

Anime of the Year 2006-IV Fall - Death Note

May 03, 2023
Death Note as new title takes the upper hand over sequel Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage . But I can also name a number of minor masterpieces - Hataraki Man , Genshiken OVA , Paprika

VN of the Month April 2023

April 30, 2023
I bet remaining companies coordinate release windows to issue exactly one conventional visual novel each month without any competition

Anime of the Year 2006-III Summer - NHK ni Youkoso!

April 26, 2023

Anime of the Year 2006-II Spring - Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu

April 21, 2023
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu is revolutionary anime in several ways, so for me it has the upper hand over Black Lagoon which is also a great masterpiece, but in more mundane , complex and adult way. Lots of titles in Spring season, but I can't vouch for the rest.

Anime of the Year 2006-I Winter - Ergo Proxy

April 13, 2023
Ergo Proxy is my favorite anime of the past which is still a full head ahead of most anime, though I see its imperfection nowadays. I also see Fate/stay night and Hellsing Ultimate as minor masterpieces deserving a mention. 

Anime of the Year 2005-IV Fall - Shakugan no Shana

April 10, 2023
Shakugan no Shana deserves a honorary mention.

Anime of the Year 2005-III Summer - Koukaku Kidoutai: Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man

April 03, 2023
Koukaku Kidoutai: Stand Alone Complex - The Laughing Man is inevitably the winner, but for a change there two more small masterpieces - Ichigo Mashimaro and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

VN of the Month March 2023

April 01, 2023
Another empty month

Anime of the Year 2005-II Spring - Hachimitsu to Clover

March 29, 2023
Lots of decent works, none is good enough for me. If I really needed to choose, I'd probably go for Hachimitsu to Clover as with all its flaws it can still be nice at times.

Anime of the Year 2005-I Winter - Karas

March 22, 2023
Slow beginning of the year, and among decent ones Karas is at least memorable

Anime of the Year 2004-IV Fall - Beck

March 17, 2023
Fall has become even more saturated than Spring lately. Beck is something unique that I'm willing to cherish. Genshiken is a cozy place to return to. Zipang is probably the best navy anime, at least to my awareness.

Anime of the Year 2004-III Summer - Gantz 2nd Stage

March 05, 2023
Turns out I criticized everything too much this season, and Gantz 2nd Stage comes out as the only candidate

Anime of the Year 2004-II Spring - Gantz

March 03, 2023
Gantz is the anime I truly love with all its weak sides. Samurai Champloo and Appleseed (Movie) should be noticed as well.

VN of the Month February 2023

February 28, 2023
One normal title per month is all we deserve these days

Anime of the Year 2004-I Winter - Interlude

February 17, 2023
Among three titles with score of 9 only Interlude is a new title, so it takes the upper hand over sequels Koukaku Kidoutai: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG and Innocence , plus there's this great little series Mousou Dairinin that deserves a mention. 

Anime of the Year 2003-IV Fall - Sakigake!! Cromartie Koukou

February 12, 2023
Lots of titles, lots of masterpieces. Gunslinger Girl , Gungrave and Jungle wa Itsumo Hare nochi Guu Final deserve a honorary mention as minor masterpieces, but my heart is with Sakigake!! Cromartie Koukou 

Anime of the Year 2003-III Summer - Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu

February 04, 2023
Can't call anything masterpiece again. Let's point out Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu , maybe. 

Anime of the Year 2003-II Spring - Texhnolyze

February 02, 2023
Many titles, but still no masterpieces. Texhnolyze is the closest one, as for me

VN of the Month January 2023

January 31, 2023
With already few titles released it might be the swan song for Giga and MAGES

Anime of the Year 2003-I Winter - .hack//Tasogare no Udewa Densetsu

January 29, 2023
My personal preference goes to .hack//Tasogare no Udewa Densetsu in the absence of masterpieces

Anime of the Year 2002-IV Fall - Koukaku Kidoutai: Stand Alone Complex

January 27, 2023
Koukaku Kidoutai: Stand Alone Complex is a genius masterpiece.

Anime of the Year 2002-III Summer - Jungle wa Itsumo Hare nochi Guu Deluxe

January 25, 2023
Did not want to give Jungle wa Itsumo Hare nochi Guu Deluxe a masterpiece to give some other decent anime a highlight, but 'tis a barren wasteland this season.

Anime of the Year 2002-II Spring - Abenobashi Mahou☆Shoutengai

January 23, 2023
Abenobashi Mahou☆Shoutengai is the only work I can call a masterpiece this season

Anime of the Year 2002-I Winter - Palme no Ki

January 21, 2023
No masterpieces as usual, personally enjoyed Palme no Ki more than others.
