Ok so asking for your top 5 would be quite boring.
So instead, I'll ask you to pick out your favourite genre.

Then you have to come up with a top 5 consisting only of anime in said genre.

Mine.

Favourite Genre: Mystery

1. The Monogatari Series
2. Death Note
3. Monster
4. Another
5. Death Parade

Yeah but how can you have a top 5 without those 3? Doesn't make sense to me.

3. Clannad

5. Oreimo



Hayate is technically a romance anime but I didn't put it on the list because its main focus is to be a comedy while the romance is a back drop to help bring forth tension and motivation

Slightly different priorities. I love lots of different sci-fi but I generally enjoy space-based scifi and cyber punk the most.

Shounen:
- D.Gray-man (manga / LN more)
- Noragami (manga more)
- Owari no Seraph (manga / LN more)
- Pandora Hearts (manga much more)
- Fullmetal Alchemist (both, both anime series and manga)

Dark Fantasy:
- Made in Abyss (both, anime series and manga)
- The Promised Neverland (both, anime series and manga)
- Madoka Magica (there's an anime, so..)
- Vanitas no Carte (there's just the manga, so..)
- Mo Dao Zu Shi (haven't read LN)

I know, there are Shounen too, so I splitted them in these categories, because I love both genres (or as a demograhic) anyway.
I also want to name Attack on Titan, Inuyasha, Tegamibachi and Magi there, because both are really good too.
Oh and I forgot, NGE is a Shounen as well lol.

Other Fantasy like Urban, High and so on:
- Juuni Kokuki
- Guardian of the Spirit
- Natsume Yuujinchou
- The Ancient Magus Bride
- Shinsekai Yori

Romance:
- Noragami
- Spice and Wolf
- Bloom Into You
- Ao no Flag
- Aoi Hana

Huh. I guess Drama.

1. Clannad (AS)
2. Chihayafuru
3. Bakuman
4. Hibike Euphonium

For #5 you would have to clarify movies or not.
If movies then it's a tie between kimi no na wa and Koe no Katachi, depending on how I feel that day.
If not movies then its a tie between Angel Beats and Plastic Memories, depending on how I feel that day.

Drama is a tie with romance, so going by romance its the same except you take out Euphonium and put in both for number 5.

I am curious though, is it relevant how well the genre plays into the show? Then Bakuman and Chihayafuru would be at serious risk on the Romance tag.

Yeah, my definition of "slice of life" is probably going to be a little controversial. Then again it's not like slice of life can actually be properly considered a genre so...
