What are some good anime series to watch from the early 2000s?
I distanced myself from anime around this time and didn't get back into it until ~2010, so what are the best shows from that era? Specifically before 2007, since I've seen stuff like TTGL.
It's from 2008 but since TTGL is your claim to fame I'm pretty sure you haven't seen Kuuchuu Buranko, It's really nice character driven show about people and dysfunctions.
Last exile is pretty good as well, it's basically a show about aerial combat, about gunships fighting higher tech ships.
Then finally I guess Birdy Decode, it's a remake of a few OVAs and it's fairly well known for having strong animation, it's an action show involving people sharing the same body.
If 1998 is close enough to the early 2000s for you I'd suggest Serial Experiments Lain.
Well, it's fun go backwards year-by-year, so I'll throw in my top 3 from each
Honey & Clover
Kamichu (guessing you've seen Aria based on OP pic, if not, replace it)
Hajime no Ippo
Banner of the Stars
Also like someone else suggested don't miss out on Lain (1998).
Also 2007-2012 really was the golden age of anime.

Sorry this is a bit off the main topic, but since you made that claim, I'm curious to hear your top 3 from each year 2007-12. Your picks seem mostly good.
