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.

'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.

etc.

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~

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.
http://tinyurl.com/d43j8b6 (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. Kanon 2006
2. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
3. Code Geass
4. Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni
5. Black Lagoon

Probably my picks anyway, trying to keep my choices diverse, a lil bit of everything from the last 10 years!

3.Monster
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
3.Clannad
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.

Top 5 must watch shows of the previous decade (not in any particular order of importance):

- Honey and Clover
- Aria
- RahXephon
- 5 Centimeters per Second
- Gintama

I didn't mention any shows from this year since they obviously aren't part of the previous decade.

just wanted to say the same about death note :( god i tought i was going to be great but got disapointed like ive never been before :s (and still 9/10 people here put it into a must watch blergh) but hey that's personal preference

1. Usagi drops (can't go wrong there now can you?)
2. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magika
3. ... uuuuuhm...

i'll stop the HAVE to watch list right there.

why? usagi drops is a perfect slice of life (people might find it boring but you can't find anything wrong with the story) and for madoka, well i just haven't seen that many people who said it was bad (in any way)
And then again this is feels more like a "give your top 5 favorit anime" :s
like i said i for one DON'T like death note AT ALL! but there are also people who hated clannad or Suzumiya. i could also name school days as a must see anime but why put people trough it if we know 95% of them is going to say it's total garbage. wich in turn i kind of liked...

How to do things wrong, a key ingredient in knowing good from bad. I'm also aware that MB34 and GW are both way older than this decade, but they really need to be seen.

No particular order. "Must watch". "What defines anime for what is it..what is entertaining? What would non-watchers like to watch? What about parents?"

That's what I asked myself.

- Maybe at least one season of Sailor Moon (for pretty girl stuff). Maybe not...but I had fun o-O;

- BACCANO

- Miyazaki movie. "Princess mononoke"?

- Patlabor or Ghost in the Shell (police drama; butGITS might be too punk)

I'm lost on a 5th one. Maybe one of the World Masterpiece Series.

Why just the last decade? That's such a pointless limitation that cuts out far too much of the good stuff.

Well, I guess something like this...

1. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
2. Texhnolyze
3. Aria the Origination
4. Eve no Jikan
5. Nana

For a proper list though, it would be...

1. Legend of the Galactic Heroes
2. Rose of Versailles
3. Cowboy Bebop
4. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
5. Mobile Suit Gundam

I'd love to stick Utena, Dagram and Votoms in too, but no more room in the top five I guess.
