2009 is the first year I’ve actually completed to monitor from January to December. Now I can fully assess the anime(s) I’ve watched—and liked from every season. Is 2009, yay or nay?

The anime(s) listed below are not really in any order of preference or such, but these are my final picks for the best shows for the year of 2009. I really didn’t include shows which weren’t done airing yet. Meanwhile, I’ve included a show from 2008 Fall which didn’t finished airing on 2008.

Hardships and obstacles are common place in life and these would test our mettle and on how we view life itself. Death of a loved one is one of these setbacks that might hinder us from progressing forward, but then again it might be an event as well that would help us go forward. It is just a matter of our choices, and as for Mirai, I’m glad she was able to overcome that reproachful feeling that she herself might have caused Yuuki’s death.

Sometimes, there are moments when what matters most is always the present, whatever might have happened during the past. Just like how Mirai’s parents took into consideration the fact that she made it alive is already noteworthy. This perspective doesn’t necessarily tells us to abandon and forget what happened on us during the past because all those things we picked up along the path have their own purpose, which is why we got from where we are now. Same as why Yuuki stayed along Mirai’s side up until she got home and met their parents, maybe it was an allusion to Mirai’s feelings of how she treasures and cherishes all those experience and emotions she felt and learned during that short journey the three of them, Mari-san, Yuuki, and she, had went all through, all together.
