List of Series
AIR - 8.5/10
Nice characters, ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC animation and music, but the plot was so confusing it turned me off in the end.
Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka - 7/10
I had such high hopes for this....I only finished it for Yuuhi....
ARIA - 8.5/10 (Animation), 9/10 - (Natural), 10/10 (Origination)
This is truly one of the true masterpieces in anime. I didnt like it much at first but it slowly grew on me and it now stands as the best piece of animation I have ever seen. The top 2 all time fav anime episode I've ever seen come fro Origination alone....that says a lot. The only anime where I think every aspect of it was completely flawless and 1 of the only 5 10/10 scores I've ever given.
Azumanga Daiō - not seen
BAMBOO BLADE - not seen
Cardcaptor Sakura - 9.5/10
Before I started watching anime again at the age of 17, I had already watched quite a handful of shows by the time I was 12, back then Cardcaptor Sakura was my all time favourite anime. And to this day it remains on my top 10. Sakura has been my all time favourite character ever since I was 11 till I was 17 (before I watched SnS).
Chobits - not seen
CLANNAD - 9/10 (season 1), 9/10 (After Story)
Clannad is good, really good, however its good because of its comedy....in the aspects of drama it didn't get good until episode 18 of After Story which to this day remains one of the best single anime episode I've ever seen. If it wasnt for that I would've given it 8/10.
Code Geass - 9/10 (season 1), 8.5/10 (season 2)
Code Geass is good, specially season 1...it had an awesome plot and the show was fantastic...but then R2 came and ruined everything....the plot twists got stupid, the plot was terrible, and if it wasn't for the great final episode I would've given it 7/10.
Fate/stay night - 8.5/10
Solid plot, great action, great animation. Good anime....but Saber is only worth watching when she fights....when she isnt...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Hayate no Gotoku! - 8.5/10 (season 1), 9/10 (season 2)
Love this show...one of the few animes where I ABSOLUTELY LOVE ALMOST EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER MAIN OR SUPPORTING!!! Also season 2 is REALLY good, its quickly climbing my ranks and soon to get into my top 10.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - 7.5/10 (season 1), 9/10 (season 2)
Season 1 was enjoyable...but thats about it....it felt like DEEN trolled me for 24+ episodes once season 2 came along...season 2 was just fantastic in terms of plot.
Kannagi - 7.5/10
Funny show....decent characters....thats about it.
Kanon - 10/10
This show holds the record of how many times I have cried to a single anime...this show is a true masterpiece from KyoAni with epic animation, music, characters, story, everything.
Kara no Kyōkai - 7/10 (movie 1), 6.5/10 (movie 2), 8.5/10 (movie 3), 8/10 (movie 4), 8.9/10 (movie 5)
Started slow...then started getting better as it went on...Shiki is an awesome character in battle.
Lucky ☆ Star - 8.5/10
Hilarious show, great characters. Thats about it.
Mahō Sensei Negima! - not seen
Mahō Shōjo Lyrical Nanoha - 7/10 (season 1), 8.5/10 (season 2), 8.9/10 (season 3)
Fuck you all StrikerS is the best season. I watch this show for the magic action and not for the moe....Nanoha is a fantastic character in battle and in person, Fate is a little too emo at first (season 1), a little too much forced moe then (season 2), and a little too tame and calm in the end (season 3).
Ōkami to Kōshinryō - not seen
Rozen Maiden - 7/10 (season 1), 8/10 (season 2 + Ouverture)
Good plot...but the main attraction is the characters....I LOVE THE CHARACTERS!!!
Shakugan no Shana - 10/10 (season 1), 9.5/10 (season 2)
This is not the best anime in the technical aspect but in terms of enjoyment....there isnt a single anime series that can beat this for me. Season 2 was a let down in the firts half...but then it became fantasticly epic. Shana replaced Sakura as my all time fav after watching this.
Shugo Chara! - not seen
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu - 10/10 (season 1), 10/10 (season 2)
As far as story goes, (thanks to the novels) Haruhi has the single greatest storyline to an anime/novel I've seen yet. The characters are also all extremely awesome and its one of the reasons this show is one of my all time favourites. By far the greatest KyoAni anime out there. The only shows I rate higher are Shana (because of fanboyism) and ARIA (because its QUALITY).
Tōhō Musō Kakyō - 7/10
Fan made lulz
To Aru Majutsu no Index - 8/10
This anime had an amazing foundation for an epic story...but it was ruined....and the character development sucked.
To Love-Ru - not seen
Toradora! - 9.5/10
This came out of nowhere and quickly became one of my all time favourites. The character development here was absolutely fantastic.
Zero no Tsukaima - 8/10 (season 1), 5/10 (season 2), 4/10 (season 3)
After such a good season 1....the let down of season 2 hit me hard...and the ending was a disgrace to anime fans. I tried to watch season 3...but coudlnt handle it anime and dropped it after episode 4

Well in the end I wasn't able to watch all shows before the end of regular season. of the 7 remaining ones I end up watching:

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - The series as a whole is totally awesome!
ARIA - Good feelings... so much good feelings this gives
Kara no Kyōkai -- all movies were good, some even awesome!

Those I still plan to gove it a try later even if it's already too late for ISML.

I can't watch anime because of my school (study hard >.<), but I watched these,

Chobits - Chii is adorable <3 I'm not an ecchi fan but I really like ecchi in this series.

Code Geass - It has a wonderful plot, amazing characters and animation. I haven't watched 2nd season. AND IT HAS FUKUYAMA JUN.

Hayate no Gotoku! - Because I love Tsundere and Kugi, I watched it. Somehow I like Maria.

Oukami to Koushinryou (Spice and Wolf) - It's a bit slow but I love the ancient theme in this anime. AND IT HAS FUKUYAMA JUN.

Rozen Maiden - I watched it because I was bored. Designs of dolls were the best part of anime. I haven't watched 2nd season yet but I hope there will be no fillers.

Shakugan no Shana - Shana (as anime and character) is super awesome. I liked the plot a lot. The action is enough, animation is quite good. The part I didn't like the most is Yuuji's enormous eyes. It irritates me a lot.

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu - Haruhi, I love you.

Toradora! - Even though I think Taiga is not a complete Tsundere, I liked this anime. Minorin is so cute~ In anime there were boring episodes too but after these boring eps, they made two eps (18 19 or 17 18) that made me cry.

Zero no Tsukaima - I hate ecchi. And goddammit these series have ecchi. A lot. They ruined a good story. Light novel is way better and Louise is love.

Aria: Cute Characters, Excellent Scenery. Saw the First Season and now second series(Licensed)
Clannad: Excellent first season might watch again. Second season already spoiled of pending tragedy. I'll still watch it. (Licensed)
Hayate no gotoku: Seen bits and pieces of second season. Can't wait for next volume of 1st season.
To-Love-Ru: saw a few episodes. Sold on the manga, will get the DVDs as well.
Toaru majutsu no index: couldn't get past the first arc but might try again later.
Railgun: Unlike Index, Railgun I will follow. Already current.
Toradora: saw a few episodes. Will get back to it later.
Suzumiya Haruhi 2nd Season: Outside of the first new episode, I kept away from that season. Still have the first season though.
Akane Iro: I got through 9 episodes. I don't think I could stomach the ending if I watched it. But still a show I would watch again if given the time.
Sora no manimani: never thought I would be interested in a series like that. Comedy was there. I might finish the series.

Add ins:
Seitokai no Ichizon: 8 Episodes - I should either complete this series or maybe let it get licensed.
Kampfer: 8 Episodes - I could get to 10 episodes, but I have bad vibes about the last 2 episodes.

With Clannad...even if you are spoiled...the voice actors and music are such that it won't matter. The emotional bits will still hit just as hard...even if you don't think they will.

I would argue they hit harder, as with any show that pulls off its emotional drama fairly well. It's easy to learn "what" happens from other people, but you need to truly watch a show to get the "how and why", which is what really matters.

tl;dr spoilers are overrated
