Anime of The Year Nominees

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai.
Colorful (2010)
Hourou Musuko
Karigurashi no Arrietty
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica
Mawaru Penguin Drum
Usagi Drop

I personally liked Usagi drop the best, I've never reed the manga although that probably helped me makes this decision easier, since there was a bit of controversy between the second half of the manga that I've read bits about here and there.

Usagi drop was the only series in 2011 where I watched it multiple times, it just makes me smile when ever I watch it. I personally like comedies, this show isn't a comedy (not really) and didn't really make me laugh much if at all but it makes me smile.. Smiling and Laughing are totally different things. This series just has something the others don't have that I can't describe. Just my personal choice.

Ano Hana and Stein's Gate were tied a close second for me followed by Madoka, Still haven't seen the rest of the series on the list but I'll attempt to go through them all.

As for the other categories, I haven't seen enough anime in 2011 to vote them.
