In your opinion, what are the top 5 must watch anime of the last decade? My personal list is

1 - Code Geass
2 - Death Note
3 - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
4 - Clannad
5 - Fullmetal Alchemist

And please, no burning other people's lists, calling people stupid, etc. Let's keep it clean =]

That being said, if Naruto is on your list, we can't be friends. Sorry.
If only you had justice on your side

'Must watch' based on what criteria?

There are some 'important' stuff you might want to watch since they're referenced a lot in discussion and other anime... Manga will usually suffice if not the anime.

1. Dragonball / Dragonball Z
2. Neon Genesis Evangelion
3. Macross / Gundam stuff

4, 5, 6, 7, ... , n. Flavor-of-the-year anime.
2011: Madoka, Steins;Gate.

1. Cowboy Bebop
2. Mawaru Penguindrum/Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt
3. Higurashi no naku koro ni
4. Samurai Champloo
5. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

I know Penguindrum only came out some months ago(and is not even finished), but I like it so much that it's on my list :P That's why I wrote an other Anime there, if it's not allowed to post not even finished Animes as my favorites~

Seriously, is it not possible to just look at the favorite anime on a user's profile?

Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei
Fullmetal Alchemist
Death Note

Clannad and Haruhi are too slow to be must-watch...a lot of people wouldn't like that.

In no particular order, these are what I find to be the most important anime of the last ten years:

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - It's influence is undeniable and it's presence unavoidable, the Evangelion of moe, if you will.

Fullmetal Alchemist - This anime made Bones a household name and inspired many trends. It also made Funimation the force it is today, ushering a new era of communication between the east and the west (anime-wise). It is also the reason most of us can watch as much anime as we do now, and it is also one of our most potent gateway drugs.

FLCL - Don't take my word for it. Someone seems to believe it more than I do. (WARNING: That automatically opens a word document).

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time - Feel free to replace this with the Digimon movie, but this is the movie that made the director a star. As you can see, I'm running out of ideas, but I truly feel this will be important for some reason (maybe something about web-generation animators).

School Days - So there's this boat...

1.Death note
4.Great teacher Onizuka
5.Clannad series

If it was this decade I would add Fate Zero

(Note:Unlike most people who just put there favorite anime, I kept in mind what is a must watch for anyone and IMO Death note and Rainbow are a must watch even though they are not my favorites.)

*Thinks more people should have read the opening post*

5.Tatami Galaxy
4.Death Note
2.The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
1.Fullmetal Alchemist

Are the must watches of the past decade imo. Not the "best", but I think all 5 of these series are important in one way or another. You could maybe replace FMA with Brotherhood, but I haven't seen all of Brotherhood.
