    You brought up both SAO and Yuuki Yuna as examples of what's currently popular in terms of aesthetics in anime. Thought you might be interested to know that the character designers for the two shows, Abec and BUNBUN, are likely the same person if the things I've read are to be believed. (Abec is a high school girl who lives near BUNBUN and taught him to draw, and he keeps having to substitute for her at conventions for various reasons -sounds totally legit, right? )

    I'd been debating it myself -the timing seemed awkward (in a "I feel like I should have done this a while back and now bringing it up seems awkward" sense). Then I got a friend request from another member and figured I should just go ahead and do it.

    I'd actually forgotten that Shana S2 was still airing in winter 2008 (and just realized I forgot Genshiken Nidaime for 2013 as well).

    Madoka would probably be an easy top 10 for me at this point as it's grown on me since its initial airing despite my being pumped for it at the time (it and Hanasaku Iroha were my big anticipated shows going into 2011). But it's never quite made "don't even need to think about it, throw it in" territory like the ones I actually did list as "classic+". I'd be interesting in hearing your theory on why that would be the case.

    I'd rank Kurenai and Shinsekai Yori below Bakemonogatari and Hyouka - the latter two have utterly sublime combinations of characters and visuals, the only thing that can really top them for me is EF (Either Memories alone or Memories and Melodies in conjunction - Melodies doesn't quite achieve such greatness by itself), which has bother my favourite anime romance ever and is the show responsible for my girlfriend and I meeting.

    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.

    So I decided to rank all the TV series (not including specials, movies or OVAs) I watched and liked a lot in 2008 to 2014 from tier 1 (highest) to tier 3 and then broke that down further (ie. 1+, 1, 1-). Then I produced a "classics" list, again split into three tiers.

    Then I determined my feelings on the years in question:
    Tier 1: 2011, 2012
    Tier 2: 2008, 2013
    Tier 3: 2010
    Tier 4: 2009, 2014

    Further notes:
    2011/2012 were very high on quality and quantity of shows, with 2013 also being fairly high on both measures.
    2008 was high on quality but didn't do quite as well quantity wise.
    2010 was mid tier on both.
    2009 has a few really good shows but didn't rank many shows overall.
    2014 ranked quite a lot of shows but very few ranked highly.

    Also, man I'm much pickier about action and "artsy" stuff than stuff I like for characters, cuteness or just plain guilty pleasure. The original list is kind of embarrassing at points... I'll PM you a copy if you want, still deciding if Pocari is allowed to see it.

    Oh boy, something awesome happened in my neck of the woods.

    Somebody finally opened in izakaya style Japanese restaurant & bar in SA. Mate of mine tried them out a couple of nights ago and said they were pretty tops. Definitely got several bunches of friends I want to go to that place with.

    Probably someone looking for a cheap cash-in. Yosuga no Sora had nudity without H scenes, so it's probably going in on that angle since, you know, naked bodies = $. It was a reasonable title overall but the Sora arc really does leave a very bitter aftertaste due to how sinister it is and dragged the rest down. Not because of the obvious factor, but moreso because Sora's version of love is utterly selfish and cruel.
