Top-Ranked Anime of Every Season

Top-rated anime series of EVERY season from 2000-2023. In reverse chronological order, with the most recent titles first. If the top-rated title is a sequel, the most popular non-sequel will be noted as well. Top-rated non-sequels and reboots will note the runner-up. Bear in mind that ratings are fluid and title rankings can change over time as more people rate shows.
1 Frieren: Beyond Journey's End

Frieren: Beyond Journey's End

Tied with: The Apothecary Diaries

(point difference between these two series was extremely minimal, and the two shows kept switching places as the #1 and #2 shows on the entire site during their run so I'm just calling it a tie)

SAO Summer 2012 is a win, I like the premise of this list, Apothecary Diaries over Frieran is a tough sell, Don't agree with all of the choices, a little too shounen happy 2015-2016, fun idea though.
