Top 10 Best Anime Series of 2010
Next year, I will find some better pictures to put as the heading to each post x)
I made it to the end! With this, I have finally released the last of my lists in all their glory. I hope you’ve enjoyed all that you’ve seen and you’ll stick around for another year at this little blog known as Anime Princess! Thank you for all your support! I hope you find it awesome!
10. Arakawa Under the Bridge
I didn’t enjoy this series as much as I had hoped, but it still had some great characters and outrageous stories. The thing I enjoyed best about it is that one of its messages was that its good to go against the “norm of society”. It also had a great OP and was pretty funny throughout.
9. Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
I know this is a series with stupid and crude humour, but I still managed to really enjoy it. It broke through the cookie cutter anime that we see each year by being unique and different. It always pushed the boundaries and didn’t care who it offended. I definitely appreciate this series for being something new and all the references to Western culture help to make it a fun watch.
8. High School of the Dead
Despite the fact that so much of this series was just boobs in different situations, it was still pretty great! The action was so entertaining and the overload of fanservice was sort of hilarious more than anything. This show was insane in all the right ways. It never took a moment to breathe, which is what i wanted and for those reasons alone, it had to make the list!
7. Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru
This series was definitely one of the best slice of life/comedy series I’ve seen in a while. It knew how to keep up with a slow paced plot without falling down a slow drain of boring. It managed to be a pretty good laugh with some great characters. At a first glance, it may turn some people off, but this is a series to stick around with because it proves itself worthy of praise.
6. Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu
Haruhi is one of the most clever franchises I’ve ever seen. It knows how to create buzz and tease its viewers, while still managing to please the fans at the very end. This over two and a half hour film was surprisingly fantastic. I’m usually disappointed by series to movie creations, but this film is such a big exception. It took moments we loved and brought in a new great story story, which together made this nothing less from awesomeness.
5. Toaru Kagaku no Railgun
I preferred the first half to this series over the second half which aired in 2010, but it was still a very amusing series and so much better than the original parent story. Basically if you want to know my reason to why it made this list, check out my post “13 Reasons to watch Toaru Kagaku no Railgun”
Kuragehime is sure to steal your heart away with its overload of charm. It was so like-able. I was only a bit disappointed by the end, but I’m hoping it was done as such so we could hope for a sequel! This series was adorable and engaging, and should definitely not get overlooked. If you’re ever looking for a series that you know you’ll like, then look no further, no matter what your taste it, you’ll find something that appeals to you with this series.
People will always have their problems with slice of life series, but I tend to enjoy the genre most of the time. K-ON!! is definitely one of my favourites and it manages to keep me interested even with 39 episodes. It has great characters and good music. At first while watching this season I was a bit concerned to hear that it was going to have 26 episodes, but my emotions quickly changed when every episode continued to impress me. This season was better than the first even because it gave off this more realistic flare and ended up relating to the characters on so many levels. I don’t care what others say, I’ll always be a fan of this series!
2. Angel Beats!
Angel Beats did not reach the standard that I expect from key, but it still managed to impress me. It created a fantastic setting and a pretty good story to go with it. Once I started watching, I had to see it all. It still had some trademark key moments like making us go down an emotional roller coaster, to a lesser extent this time around, but this series still made me feel sentimental on more than one occasion. In the long run, this series gets the number two spot because it was entertaining and reminded me that really good anime series are still out there despite all the bad stuff.
This was without a doubt the most enjoyable series of the year! I usually prefer shorter series, but even at twenty-four episodes it stayed so awesome. It told a story where it kept you interested right up to the last seconds while never missing a beat. The action was brilliant and it still remained extremely clever. It’s like Inception in that it manages to be a really popular film/anime without losing its style and remaining complex and intriguing. Don’t even get me started on the characters, but to keep it simple so many of them are just the best you’ll ever find. I would easily rewatch this series at any time! If there is anything you watch from the year 2010, make it Durarara!!
