Welcome to RABUJOI’s Anime of the Decade, a comprehensive and hastily-researched list of the 100 best anime we watched from 2009 to 2019. We attempt to provide one brief statement about each show, based in some cases on very fuzzy recollection and possibly guesses. This list is final. No reviews, no appeals, and no Gintama (but only because we’ve never watched it).—RABUJOI STAFF
Not all high school harem rom-coms are created equal…this one’s pretty good
We actually watched Railgun before Index…and still kinda like Railgun more due to the focus on Misaka
The third season of the family restaurant sitcom finally resolved will-they-won’t-they situations with “they wills”—and did a really good job doing it
If you could go back to your high school days, what would you say and do differently? ReLIFE, the first 13 episodes of which released all at once, Netflix-style, brilliantly explored every facet of that question
The third and best of the Durarara!! sequel cours
65. Kill la Kill
Studio Trigger dazzles the stage with a completely ludicrous action/sci-fi/adventure odyssey involving sentient—and often extremely skimpy—clothing
The third season that gave us hope that maybe the MC would actually end up with a real-life girl in the end. It wasn’t to be…maybe the upcoming Season 4?
Two human experiments with numbers for names meet a neglected girl from a broken home, and as the title suggests, there is a bit of terrorism
One of the most consistently hilarious isekai anime ever made, KonoSuba commits to laughs like no other show in its genre
Squid. Princess. Any questions?
