For his final Anime Say! of the year, Capsule Computer's anime specialist, Luke Halliday runs down his Top 5 anime of 2011. Did you favourite make the cut? Follow the link to find out!
What does everyone think of this top 5 list?
not enough blue exorcist
I agree, loved Blue Exorcist.
Hunter Hunter is awesome glad to see that its in your top 5
Hunter x Hunteris no Blue Exorcist in my opinion
I think that it's lacking mahou shoujo madoka magica. That should be in the top 5 of anyone's favourite anime of the year.
Madoka is the single best anime I've seen this entire year. I'm not the kind that likes moe stuff but this anime has a really good story and a couple of really epic plot twists that are gonna break your mind almost at the level of School Days. If you're an anime fan and haven't watched this then what is wrong you? This anime is easily on a top 10 of the best anime in the last 10 years. Another "decent" animes were: The World God Only Knows Steins;Gate Blue Exorcist and that is it. This year has been really weak if you ask me. I watched so much anime just to drop them after 3-4 episodes. Usagi Drop, Kamisama no Memochou, Dog Days, Working!!, Ro-Kyu-Bu!, Infinite Stratos, etc. =/
Now you want to make me watch all of these anime. Hunter X Hunter looks like one worth watching, but, if there was one I would watch, UN-GO would be that one.
I'd definitely agree with a number of your picks, though I believe Blue Exorcist was the best shonen title this year. Also I'd really not include steins;gate. I would probably replace that with something like Dog Days or Zombie Desu Ka
No Dragon Ball Z Kai or Pokemon? Pathetic list. "Anime fan" you are not sir. Might as well included some kind of Nicktoon.
Are you daft?
No one has even heard of those. Rocket Power had more popularity. Rocket Power! After the depth that Pokemon brought to the series with the dark turn of Team Rocket and the struggles of Iris, it's an insult to the brand to not name it in your so called list.
You are daft aren't you?
pokemon is heaps old............
Fuck, your a dickhead.
A dickhead? Have you even seen the struggles Pikachu has went through? Ash almost didn't win a badge this season. Pokemon is no longer your little brother's anime and it's a shame that it is so widely ignored in your snobby circles. The animes this guy listed with his jump cutting arse are an insult to call better, and frankly, you might as well have listed a carton of milk as even it's dairy blandness would have had more substance than such a half done listing.
Suck a dick faggot.
No Winter and Summer shows on here? I know they have half the things airing, but Madoka and Usagi Drop? Usagi Drop and Penguindrum were pretty much the only quality new things to start airing in summer, though I know you have beef against the latter. I also really liked Gosick. Nichijou I found to start off brilliant, but became a bit stagnant later, as it relied too much on the same tricks for too long, 26 episodes is much too long for it. HxH I think is an interesting show show, but its too early to really say if its a jewel of 2011, whilst UN-Go I watched the first episode of, and was thoroughly unimpressed, but given how many people have started praising it mid-way through, I'll get back to it. Steins;Gate was probably my favourite of 2011 - A brilliant show, but not quite a 10/10.
Is my country blocked or is this website up a certain time of day. I'm using Google chrome and I'm getting this error. "Oops! Google Chrome could not find www.capsulecomputers.com"
Yes, here's the same. This page is blocked for some countries, for some stupid reason. Edit: Can anyone here put the list so I can comment?
ok i got pass the stupid region block. It turns out the list is in a youtube video. Heres the link http://www.youtube.com/watc...
How did you did it? It looks like this page is the only one posting constantly in animeshinbun and it's frustrating not to be able to see it.
i haven't seen any of the animes on that list as yet. Well i saw the 1st episode of hunter x hunter but didn't make it to the end because it was just a modernized version of the original(which i just watched this summer). But a solid list non the less. My list of best animes in 2011 no particular order are: Deadman Wonderland Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai Mirai Nikki Blue Exorcist Blue exorcist being the one i'm a little disappointed in because it started out strong but the main character didn't progress as much in-terms of strength after halfway into the series. I expected him to become a bad ass paladin in the end.
Blue exorcist is shit
Great anime say, I have to agree with all 5, Un-Go and Steins;Gate totally agree both a amazing anime.
I liked watching Gosick a lot this year, and Deadman Wonderland was good too. I never got a chance to see Steins Gate, but I've heard a lot of good things about it.
deadman had a shit ending
I think they were planning on having a second season. The manga goes on a lot longer.
They did have an OVA, but it was more or less a prequel for one of the other side characters. Hopefully a second season will be coming at some point... though I do not know how well the anime itself did in Japan.
I would say Steins;Gate, Mirai Nikki, Blue Exorcist, Ben-To, and Guilty Crown. I especially like Mirai Nikki for giving me the chance to say "crazy stalker psycho bitch" at least once per episode. Would also give an honorable mention to the third season of Natsume Yuujinchou, but that's just me.
steins;gate was awesome
