Reflections of the Past: My Evolving Top 25 Anime (2008-2012)

7 FEB
2011

For the past five years, I've been maintaining a record of how much my top 25 anime has changed. I usually do it around May of every year and will be handling 2012's list very soon. I can only wish I kept records from every year, but I'm afraid I never did. Oh well, its still very entertaining nonetheless. Check back for the 2012 permanent update in April, it will be updated into this blog post instead of creating a new blog post.

Those are some rather strong anime, especially the 2009 list.  Such lists are always helpful in finding new shows to watch.
