    Choose your pick from one of these:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Anime_of_2008

    When I look back at it, 2008 was a shitty year for anime, with a few pearls of something actually worth watching.
    My vote goes for Kaiba, the biggest pearl in the crap pile of 2008 anime.


    inb4 shitstream of votes for Toradora and Code Gay R2



    On a side note: yes, you can be a pretty funny guy and vote for Pico x Coco x Chico, however Boku no Pico was released in 2006 and Pico to Chico was released in 2007, so you can't vote for those.

    Shigofumi: Letters from the departed. Besides that, everything else sucked.

    Except maybe Kaiba, which I haven't started watching.

    EDIT: WELL, I WOULD'VE VOTED FOR THE GL MOVIE, BUT IT'S A MOVIE, THEREFORE DOESN'T COUNT.

    Code Geass R2? Because the first season was released in 2007, so I guess I'll just have to assume you mean R2.

    Nevermind.

    The movie is not on the net yet, in fact iirc it's still in theaters.
    But than again I don't keep track of these things.

    Edit: My vote goes for
    Gakuen Shimai.

    I preferred R2 to the first season, but I meant the whole series. Since it concluded in 2008.

    Since we're being honest and everything, I might as well say it; Xam'd isn't too bad. Maybe it's because I have a soft spot in my heart for BONES (sorta hardened up after Soul Eater). I mean, it has the shitty BONES pacing and all, but I somewhat enjoy watching it.

    To be honest, I got bored of Hokuto no Ken, as manly as it was.

    "Hey look, that enemy looks like he might be some trouble to Kenshi-oh he's already dead."

    Is Raoh Gaiden any different?

    This year had some good animes. It all depends on your taste though since quite a bit of animes had to do with comedy, romance and school life.

    In the parallel dimension
    The main character of Code Gay-ass was Ledouche.

    Hokuto No Ken is badass even if every enemy dies in like 10 seconds after Ken gets serious. Exploding heads never get old.

    Raoh Gaiden is equally amazing, of course.
