    I just learned about the next KyoAni show from the most unlikely of sources - Pocari Sweat.

    Pocari is already proclaiming his hated for the show. He's probably right. He'll probably hate it.

    But I think you and I will probably like it.

    Here's the PV.

    And here's a nice group shot.

    Very early impressions - Main girl makes me think of Eru Chitanda's mind in Haruhi Suzumiya's body.

    One of these girls looks a lot like Yuuki Yuuna's Itsuki, which would probably appeal to you.

    What's your take on this upcoming KyoAni anime?

    Well I've been home for a while, but I don't have the energy to argue

    You and I have some discussing to do when I get home!

    A few quick things

    1 - I didn't start following anime on a season-by-season basis until Summer 2009. For that reason, I can't say a lot about 2008 and the first half of 2009. There are some shows from that period that I ended up watching later on (Clannad being one obvious example), but none I watched as it aired, with maybe a couple exceptions (Code Geass, Shana). So there will certainly be considerable divergence between us for 08 and 09 for that reason.

    2. I have to admit I'm slightly disappointed that Madoka Magica never made your "classic+". I know you didn't love it as much as I do, but I nonetheless thought it was a show you held in high regard. However, when I consider the four shows that did make your "classic+", I have a theory as to what might be contributing to Madoka Magica not making it. I intend to share that theory with you over PMs later.

    3. Hyouka was in my Top 5 for its year, and it's also one of my all-time favorite anime shows, so there's a decent chance it would make "classic+" for me if I adopted your own rating system. Bake and SSY are two shows I liked a lot while they aired, and I still hold both in some degree of high regard, but I'm not sure how well they've aged for me. I haven't seen Kure-nai. So you're right that our "classic+" list would diverge a fair bit.

    Bit of preliminary data:

    Spoiler for Simplified list - total shows and classics:

    "Classic" just means I consider it a standout among the entire period considered, which is a bit arbitrary.
    The notable observations here are how the variation in how many shows I like year to year is pretty small and how bad 2009 was save for a few standouts.

    And here's a slightly more detailed set:
    Spoiler for Less simplified numbers:

    2014 doesn't look quite as strong here, does it? Note the classics category includes Classic+ (basically the "shortlist") and tier 1 includes both, I just bother marking classic/classic+ because such shows can skew my overall impressions a bit.

    Will send the detailed data later. And BTW, while I suspect your year to year impressions may be similar, the actual pick of shows may not be.

    Honestly, I've noticed much the same about my own tastes shifting that way. If the main reason I'm into a show is because of moe or endearing characters, I'm more likely to think highly of it than if I'm into a show mainly because of plot or artistic reasons.

    Basically, if a show really wins me over with one or more of its characters, it's sure to be a personal favorite, whereas the same isn't as often true for shows that win me over primarily with their plot or "artsy" quality.

    Honestly, I suspect this reflects one of the chief taste divides here on Anime Suki. I think it helps to explain how, for example, you and I both tend to like noitaminA shows, but not quite as much as noitaminA's biggest fans do. It also helps to explain my passionate love of Love Live! and your own love of shows like HSI. On the whole, my tastes have drifted closer to yours over the past two years, and further away from, well, Pocari's...

    So by all means, PM me your list. While I haven't done a detailed year-by-year breakdown to the degree that you have, I suspect we'd be in at least 90% agreement. 2011 and 2012 were both very strong years out of the last 6 or so, and I'd rate them ahead of the other 4/5 years in that group.

    Really though I'm not going yell at you for having bad taste... much . You obviously always had a better affinity for moe for various types while I'm mega picky when it comes to moe shows. I just grew old and cynical as time passes.

    The only real disappointment is how you can't share the enthusiasm for shirobako like most of the hipster tm gang. I think you don't know how much I love it though I admit it's partly compounded by that the fact it's the first good paw show for me since uchouten kazoku which was more than a year ago. But hey that's just me with fanboyism talking.
