Make it top 5, 10 or 15, whatever you want. Just share what you love. c:

1) Clannad + After Story
2) Code Geass
3) Darker Than Black/ Seasons 1+2
4) Toradora
5) Spice and Wolf
6) Eureka Seven
7) Angel Beats
8) Kanon 2006
9) Elfen Lied
10) Gurren Lagann
11) Honey and Clover
12) Princess Mononoke
13) Highschool of the Dead
14) Needless
15) Sora No Otoshimono

Basically anything made by Key/Bones, or was directed by Hayao Miyazaki is something you should look in to.

Gotta have an honorable mention for Death Note though. Death Note was one of the first anime I actually watched seriously and enjoyed, but I don't think I remember it as well as I should so I'm not going to put it up.

1. FLCL. Best animation ever, great music, great structure, and awesome for interpretations.
2. Cowboy Bebop. Great music and awesome story. It remind you to an old movie.
3. Neon Genesis Evangelion. Action anime with philosophic implications.
4. Paprika. Just awesome.
5. Ghost in the Shield - Stand Alone Complex. I like it more than the movie, basically because of Laughing Man.
6. Akira. A incredible ciber punk story.
7. Gurren Lagan. Gave us the best character of all times, and the most epic ending.
8. Slam Dunk. Incredible animation and draws.
9. Ghost in the Shield (movie). This is when Cyborgs become sexy.
10. Paranoia Agent. When a lie become reality.

1) Cowboy Bebop
2) Full Metal Alchemist (love the manga, too)
3) Princess Mononoke (I'm with Oz here, it's AWESOME!)
4) The Twelve Kingdoms (though, it was never finished since the book series still isn't done)
5) Samurai Champloo

Runners up:
Gundum Wing
Spirited Away
Vampire Hunter D (I can't pick which one I like better, the first or second.)

I'm sure there are others.

Edit:
I forgot Millennium Actress and Fooly Cooly (Others have it on their list, too. It's just a great show.)

In no order: Spice and Wolf, FLCL(and any Gainax works after it), Code Geass, Hellsing Ultimate(the OVA series), and Magical Pokaan(same character designer as Gurren Laganns, mixed with actually funny ecchi jokes, without a huge amount of unnecessary fanservice FTW). Honorable mentions: Naruto(the manga only though), Death Note, Witchblade, Soul Eater, and Hetalia Axis Powers.

I didn't like it.

I saw it because someone said it has the best fighting scene ever made. But I didn't like that much, at least not for favorite animation where I can pick million of better ones (ex: Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi).

I think Toradora should be on some peoples lists... I think it'd be my #7, and #6 Gurren Lagann.

Sora No Otoshimono seems to come up a lot too. I can't wait until the 2nd season comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray.

We must cut off his cerebellum so that Jubeh's influence in the cerebrum can no longer inhibit his actions.

Mine is kind of short:
1. Slayers
2. Dragon Ball (not Z or the sequels - the first one)
3. :enter Ghibli movie here: (haven't decided which one is the best)

Matt
06-09-2011, 12:03 PM
Hmm. It's at times like this that I realize just how much anime I haven't seen. I haven't even watched Gurren Lagann or Evangelion yet.

1. Higurashi
2. Clannad
3. Tales of Symphonia (one of the only game -> movie things I actually liked)
4. Hidan no Aria
5. History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

I kept being tempted to put down Rosario+Vampire and Black Cat, but neither of them had good animes. The mangas of both were awesome, and honestly, HSDK's manga was WAAAAAY better than the anime.

Sora no Otoshimono is on a few lists. I've watched it and liked it quite a lot, but I think it could have been so much better. Typical panties/boobs-in-the-face humor has long since ceased to be funny for me. And I have never once laughed after seeing a pair of tits on the screen. SnO's selling point is, for me, the art style. Now when the heck does season 3 come out?

06-09-2011, 01:40 PM

If your list starts to fill up I guess it's okay to make it top 15. I would make a poll for this if I knew how. O____O

(Totally oblivious to the comments above.)
Well, here's my list:

5)Elfen Lied
This anime was really short, but the plot was amazing. I thought the ending was really strong, because it really mixes pity with vengeance. Most animes fail to get a perfect emotional mix, but Elfen Lied did an outstanding job.

4)Cromartie Highschool
Relaxing animes are great in my opinion. Cromartie Highschool was a gem in the gag and relaxing anime genre. Whenever I watched it, all my worries were replaced with laughs and happiness.

3)Eyeshield 21
I don't know if it's just me, but I love Eyeshield 21. It is an excellent anime, and watching it only makes me want to watch more.

2)DragonBall
The manga was amazing, and the anime was great. I can see why this influenced so many mangakas, and why it is so loved.

1)Ranma 1/2
I really don't see this as a ground-breaking anime, but it's a really calm and relaxing anime. The only bad thing about Ranma is that once you finish it, you crave more. We really need more animes like Ranma.

Rio
06-10-2011, 10:29 AM
I love the Eyeshield 21 manga but the anime is just not up to par because they changed parts of it which didn't turn out very well, imo. This is usually the case with other anime series - I would love the manga but the anime was just completely different or just not as well done that they didn't make it to my list. :(

Ozzaharwood

Woah, you liked Fate/Stay Night that much? I thought it was good but I was kind of disappointed with the ending.

Ya I did! I wish it was animated better and all, but it's a fairly old series so I let that factor slide. I loved the story though!

And yeah, Shirou never gets the girl in the end, but I think it represented fairly what Saber stood for - the ideals of sacrifice and heroism, etc, etc. The best ideals are the ones you can never fully attain.

But I'm off my soapbox already. Here's a secret game ending you might like (Skip to 4:13 if you're short on time):

Ozzaharwood
06-24-2011, 02:24 AM
Yeah, I get what you mean but endings like that make me depressed, lol. (It's not that they're bad, just sad) Thanks for showing me that alternate ending though, it was nice to see them back together again. I think that helped to fill the void where I wished they'd be back together again. I actually might have to make some room for Fate/Stay Night on my list...

Hamachi
06-24-2011, 02:48 AM
Did you watch Unlimited Blade Works? Since the original was a game with alternate endings, Type-Moon allowed another movie where everything happens differently.

Ozzaharwood
06-24-2011, 11:33 AM
Actually, I haven't. I heard it was really good as well, so I'll have to check it out.
