Top 10 Anime of 2009, According to 2ch

2ch has made its final pick of the anime of 2009, and the list provided seems unlikely to provoke much opposition.

The “let’s pick the top 5 anime of 2009” ranking (with an additional 5 anime to bring it up to the obligatory 10), along with the votes each received:

1. Bakemonogatari (1231)

2. Darker Than Black II (805)

3. Saki (704)

4. K-ON! (582)

5. Higashi no Eden (525)

6. To Aru Kagaku no Railgun (456)

7. Kimi-ni Todoke (428)

8. Taisho Yakyu Musume (238)

9. Natsume’s Book of Friends (209)

10. Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 (199)

Whither Haruhi? 25th with a pathetic 76 votes, hardly a surprise considering 2ch’s attitude to Kadokawa’s marketing antics…

2ch conducted the same ranking exercise in 2008, with the following results:

1. Code Geass R2 (595)

2. Ga-rei Zero (564)

3. True Tears (439)

4. Strike Witches (371)

5. Kannagi (352)

There are also the earlier seasonal 2009 rankings for Summer and Fall, based on different threads.

It would appear 2ch’s critical faculties are as well developed as could be hoped for from anime otaku.
