After some data collection, here is my top 10 list for the best anime series in 2013. Similar to the previous list, I have excluded series that have not finished in 2013 (hence the likes of Kill la Kill and Log Horizon are not in the list). See Appendix for the sources I use and the methodology to give rise to this list.
Best Anime Series of 2012 – Meta Analysis From around the WebPosted: January 20, 2013 Filed under: Anime, Series, Top Ranking | Tags: Anime, Anime of 2012, Anime series, Best anime series, Chihayafuru, Japan, Japanese animation, Top 10, top anime series 5 Comments
Another year, another set of animes to analyze. Similar to previous years, I try to collect as much data from around the web as I can to see what are the best anime series in 2012. Coming into the exercise, I have no idea what good series there are that I should follow so this yearly analysis benefits me as much as anyone else. I hope a few of you also find some use in it too!
Below is the final list of anime based on all the sources (listed in the appendix at the end)

We are now in 2012 and that tells me that it is time to visit all the polls, wrap-ups, ratings of anime in 2011 and see which one is rated above all others in 2011. I still like having a comprehensive ranking that I can personally look to with some confidence for the best animes to watch over the last year (considering I’m so far behind and have not heard of most of the top 10 before I wrote this!). Unlike 2010, there seems to be a consensus that 2011 is a very good year for anime with as many as five titles acclaimed as the best in the last few years. The roster at the top is more loaded with a clear consensus on what the top animes are. I sure cannot wait to watch them alll!
I have now also extended the data research to cover MAL among others, making the list more comprehensive that the 2010 version.
