1. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood (2009)
What defines a great show? Does the series need great story, does it need cool characters or good soundtracks, what about atmosphere or animations? I myself have always been a fan of good endings.
Do you ever ask yourself "what defines greatness?", cause if you do, I know for a fact that you haven't seen Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood yet, because FMAB masters all of these things almost flawlessly.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is a series that strives for perfection. You can look all you want for flaws, but you won't find them easily. Though animations, characters, soundtracks etc. are great, I feel like i should focus more on telling you about the story, as the story is thing that distinguishes FMA:B most from other series. Because the rarity of a great story is so extreme, and this might be your only chance to see something close to perfection.
Not only is it unique and original, but it constantly pops up some kind of new plot twist, so you can never truly predict what happens next.

FMA:B would probably be the only show that never left its original plot. There were some side stories, but if they first started on a side story, they would at least tangle it up with the main story and follow the story up to the end.

If you have seen Fullmetal Alchemist (2003) and consider watching this because you're not sure if they will be almost the same, you're probably an idiot. This is on 1st place and FMA is on 13th. If that isn't telling you enough I can go closer into details.
First and foremost is FMA:B surpassing FMA in almost every way. While Brotherhood also have these small improvements like better animation, better english voice actors, cooler fights etc. the story is in a another dimension. The difference in the story is enormous even though the first 12 episodes of Brotherhood is only a recap of the original FMA.

And for all of you non-believers from Fullmetal Alchemist (2003), do not worry! I know you have been crying yourself too sleep throughout the previous show begging god for mercy. Well your prayers have been heard, because Winry's boobs will randomly get bigger in some episode after episode 25. (They thought I wouldn't notice... I showed them alright *evil laugh*).

Summary:
Anyways... A great show that needs to be seen. I would recommend watching the original FMA first because of some inquiries that tends to be in a few count of episodes in FMA:B. Also the first 12 episodes of Brotherhood is kind of a recap of what happened the first (ca) 1-28 episodes in FMA. Even though they have made it possible to be seen without seeing FMA.

FMA: Brotherhood: Dub vs Sub
Dub: FMA:B has one of the best dubs i've ever heard and probably ever created. Not only are the voices spot on, and fit most of the characters perfectly, but the voice-acting itself is brilliant.

3. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 (2008)
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 is a fantasy, mecha which has quite the similarities with Death Note.
Both animes evolves around a genius main character which gains a supernatural power which they decides to use to make an utopian world with. Also they do it while hiding their true identities.

Despite their similarities I would say, Code Geass comes on top for a few reasons. First and foremost because Death Note had some average 12 last episodes instead of quitting on episode 25 and in contrast of this Code Geass: LOTR R2 has one of my favorite endings of all time.
Other than that they are both great shows. Neither Code Geass and Death Note seizes to amaze me, and the joy of finding out what happens next is also a common feature they share.

I actually favored season 2 over season 1, and I know there is a lot of general discussion about this. Though season 2 got som sloppy writing here and there, it was still better because of the superior action scenes and the amazing ending. In addition to that, there were still great writing in first several episodes and the last couple of episodes, with just a few average episodes somewhere in the middle.

Death Note and Season 1 aside, Code Geass is

Code Geass - Lelouch of the Rebellion is a mecha quite similar to Death Note. As both the stories follows a high school student gaining a supernatural power, which he tries to use to the benefit of "saving the world"... None of them has any problem killing others to achieve their goals, both of them becomes a bit.. well.. mad/insane.. while in progress of their work, both of them hiding their true identities (Light disguises as Kira and Lelouch as Zero), both of them are smart, strategic and devious and the similarities just keep going.

4. Death Note (2006)
Death note was the first anime I saw and I am really happy about starting my long list of animes with something this great. I also think that Death Note is the guaranteed best "first anime" to see. The reason for that is because of there's almost no blood, no random fan-service (which may scare some people off) and no fcking tsunderes, but it's still a thriller keeping you on the edge of your seat at all times. This is great fun and I still haven't met anyone who didn't like the first 25 episodes.

Death note is a thriller about the genius high-school student, Light Yagami aka. Kira, who finds this mysterious diary (Death Note), which can kill people. Light decides to use this diary to kill all evil and make a utopian world without bad guys.

As killers, thieves, prisoners start dying in jails and on the street all by heart-attacks, the police suspects that there is a serial killer doing the work. They have no clues and can't find any leads that would lead them to the killer so they call in their greatest detective. The detective they call 'L'. And This is were the fun part starts...
L is a genius. This epic battle between them brings humor (mostly from L, who is the biggest troll ever), mystery and it will keep you guessing their moves until the end of the show.

L is my personal favorite character of all time.
Baccano! had the best characters all in all (every single character was awesome), Vash the Stampede from Trigun was epic, Guts was badass and there are a lot of other great character, but L is my favorite.

This would be higher up on the list if it ended where it should have ended... Won't spoil anything ;)

5. Baccano! (2007)
Baccano! is one of the best and most original shows I have ever seen. This show is so brilliant, that when I was done watching it, I instantly started to re-watch it, too see the show all over again, just to ease my hype a little. In all honesty, this series is the fucking definition of awesome!
The plot, dialogues, scenes are all brilliantly performed, but one thing was even better...

The characters: The characters in this show are amazing! Their personalities are all so different and fun, and that's even with the big cast they have! A good main character in an anime is actually pretty standard (at least based on the animes i've seen), but in this show, every fucking character is so extremely well made! In this show, the writers have managed to create better characters in 16 episodes than every 13, 25 or 50+ episodes anime i've seen so far (Averagely per character that is).
Not a single characters is boring or uncreative, but If I had to choose my absolute favorite characters, it would probably be Isaac and Miria.

Isaac and Miria are funny, thoughtful and actually quite skilled robbers. Not only are they performing the strangest kinds of robberies, but they also dresses up in costumes every time. One of their plans was to rob a whole museum, but as that was proved impossible, they stole the entrance door instead... so that no one could enter.(not many robbers like that these days oO).
They have many great quotes and they don't disappoint in a single episode.

Note: The show may seem like a total mess and a clusterfuck in the first few episodes. You may have a hard time remembering who is who, who belong to witch timeline, who are immortal, who are not etc.
Though you will be pretty confused, DO NOT FEAR, JUST KEEP WATCHING!!
Believe me, when you're at the end they have managed to tangle up all your previous questions and frustrations and given you the answers you were looking for.

6. Steins;Gate (2011)
Loved it from the first episode!
Many people are complaining about the show's starting up a bit slow, and they are probably right. There is very little progress in the plot the first episodes and the real plot doesn't really start to get going before episode 12. This doesn't matter at all though, each and every episode (for me at least) before episode 12 were great. We get to hear Okabin's awesome laughter (which probably would be enough to entertain me the entire show), we get to meet all the great characters and they'll introduce us to the plot.

I'll admit that the first episodes weren't the reason for it's high spot on the list, because the greatness of the show doesn't show it's original form before episode twelve when Okabe performs his first time-travel. By episode twelve your heart should already be trying to beat its way out of your chest.
Onwards from this point you will probably love the series.
The ending was good, and imo, the OVA just made it better. Remember to watch episode 25 people!


Another thing I truly love about this show is the EPIC intro! This intro even tops Baccano's intro, something I hardly thought was possible..
A great anime which is highly recommended if you're looking for new animes to watch.

7. Berserk (1997)
Berserk: The badass medieval anime about Guts the swordsman. His journey starts early on with joining a mercenary group called "The Hawks" and meeting Griffith; another important character. In the series we will see Guts helping Griffith achieving his dream about ruling the world.

One of the reasons for Berserk's high spot on this list would be the incredible, unbeatable atmosphere. The soundtracks, visual surroundings, the dialogues etc. really succeeds in creating a rather dark and grim show, which is good, which is especially cool considering that i hate too grim shows...

The character depth and development is great. You'll get to know the charcters, their stories and their goals. This especially goes for the two main characters, Guts and Griffith.

Guts is a really epic character. No superpowers, no supernatural strength, no guru raised him, and despite all this, we still end up with one of the strongest, best and most fearless swordfighters in any anime so far. But Guts actually deserves these amazing fighting skills. Every episode Guts is training. Training to improve and grow strong. He has an extreme determination and along the journey we will witness him become stronger.

Guts is the ONLY character i have ever seen who has taken every single one of his opponents without any struggle (...fu. Demons don't count).
Few can take this fighter 1v1 and he deserves a spot high up in best/most badass characters of all time.

This anime is a few steps from perfect though. The animations varies, but is mostly basic old school drawn, with some moments being better than others. Also the ending was quite annoying/bad. The manga continued, but the series stopped. The ending was actually quite random without any continuation that explained further on what was happening. At the end you will be confused, but happy for seeing one of the best animes ever!

9. Clannad: After Story (2008)
Clannad: After Story was the 2nd anime I saw, and what an excellent 2nd anime it was. The first season which offered mediocre comedy, sadness and enjoyment, built up by 4 average stories about the side characters, suddenly grew so much and became this masterpiece of perfection.
No other anime will bring emotions like After Story and you will never feel the same way again.

Like in the 1st season the show is divided into 4 stories, though in this season there is a main story, which starts around episode 9, when the last of the three other stories finishes.
Now the story finally focuses Tomoya, who has been the protagonist from that start off. We will see his life After High-school when the friend group has split apart to each their destinations, Nigisa (his girlfriend) is repeating the senior year (again) and he moves out and gets a job.
Here is where his hardest challenges in his life begins. While one tragedy after another hits him, he ends up in a depression. He finds his way out of the depression, but just months after, a new tragedy appears.
The story is incredibly touching and should not be missed by anyone.

NB! MUST SEE CLANNAD FIRST!

Also I truly give them props for winning me over displaying a genre im not that fond of (steampunk)

The Characters are interesting and not as stereotypical as 99% of the characters usually are in animes nowadays. The animations are simply beautiful, the story is engaging and doesnt fall of interest for a second (though it doesnt really start before episode 12ish), and yaaay there will be a season 2! =)

14. Fullmetal Alchemist (2003)
A few years back i watched this series called Avatar: The Last Airbender and thought for myself "Whay an amazing show! Imagine how great this would be if they had an adult version of it. The story was very original and good, but it was meant for children, so that meant no deaths, no one gets hurt in fights and that takes away a little of the tension.
Now two years has gone and i stumble over this beautiful creation of a series called "Fullmetal Alchemist!"...

I actually saw the first 41 episodes in one day, something which beats my old record by almost three times. In other words, this show is very addicting. The fights, characters and the pure enjoyment rates this show up high, but sadly the story rips a star away from it again.

The plot revolves around the two main characters, which are called the Elric brothers. In their search for finding their new bodies, they sadly get way to far off track at times, starting new side plots which tends to do nothing with the main plot and lasts way too long. The plot is what throws this show down on the list, but still I enjoyed the hell out of it.

Classy, stylish and cool. These are the three best words for describing Cowboy Bebop.
The plot isn't the deepest, most unique or thrilling, and is definitely not the reason you keep coming back for the next episode, but rather, as mentioned, the unique style and class of the show.

The characters are awesome. Radical Ed, Faye Valentine, Jet Black and Spike Spiegel are the four main characters.
Radical Ed is a genius child, with computer skill like no other. With the goofy personality

Trigun is an awesome western, action, comedy, drama anime about the legendary Vash the Stampede with the 60$$ billion on his head.
Vash the stampede is probably one of the most amazing characters I have seen. One moment he is the funny, unserious Vash that travels around the world teaching people about love and peace. This Vash also seem to trick everyone to think he is just a normal clumsy guy with no skill what so ever, but then the next second he takes on his glasses and becomes a badass, who could kill everyone and with the sickest gun skills on the planet, but still wouldn't kill a fly.
Trigun is awesome, even though this isn't the average go around killing everyone with gallons of blood everywhere.

The series is pretty down to earth, but there were a few too many love cliches i didn't like. Like when koyuki meets up to that party with a suit on, or when the condom accidentally falls out of his pocket. sigh

As i see new series i find it harder and harder to place it in it's rightful spot. Every series i have on this list are supposed to be great and so far they have. I found it quite easy to place the ten first series, but now i am getting more and more uncertain every time i am going to rate one.

Anyways.. Kino's Journey is an extraordinary show like no other. While the usual kind of anime involves and focuses on blood, gore, cool fighting scenes, awesome and unique characters, a great plot and such, Kino's Journey has no specific plot, no blood or gore, no focus on getting a cool fight or a thrilling ending in every episode which makes you hungry for the next episode, but for some reason... i will continue this later

34. Clannad (2007)
Clannad... The prequel to one of the best animes ever. I am really glad they started with this anime. A season who first attaches us to the characters and makes us so much more vulnerable when something really sad is happening.
While Clannad have all these sad separate stories about the characters, After Story brings you one story. I feel Clannad is just a preparation for what is yet to come to make it better.

Focusing on Clannad only as a series though without considering After Story.
The protagonist is a high-school student named Tomoya Okazaki. As a delinquent in his senior year, Okazaki hates his school and just sits around wasting time with his buddy Youhei Sunohara, who finds himself in the same situation. Sonuhara is more like an side character though
Although Okazaki is the main character this is season is not merely as not much focused here as in After Story. This season is more about getting to know him and his friends and as we do that Clannad follows the story of 3 people. Fuko Ibuki, Kotomi Ichinose, Nagisa Furukawa (+ her parants, Akio and Sanae Furukawa).
Though this season isn't merely as good as the next one, After Story wouldn't have been what it was if it wasn't for this season. Clannad id a must watch before After Story!

Clannad: Dub or Sub
I personally watched the dub, and I liked it. Most of the voices fits well, and some even better than the original Japanese voices. I would say though that the actual voice acting was better in japanese, but I dont think it will bother you too much. If you see the dub you will probably get used to it.
If you see the dub after the sub you will probably be pretty annoyed because the english cast miss pronounce nagisa, but you'll only notice this if you saw the jap version first.
I think this definitely is a series where you love what you start off with.
And also, Akio's english voice is fcking awesome!

35. Toradora! (2008)
Slow start, but the second half is amazing.
The thing about Toradora was that, when i sat there watching the show i was really bored the first 15~ish episodes and was thinking about all the bad things i could write and how i was going to give at 6 out of 10 (dont know if these thoughts are normal when you watch a show.. lolz), but then, suddenly the second half appears, and it just shows that THIS is what the series was building up to.
The episodes get more serious, the characters more interesting and if the rest of the series had the same quality, this would have been given an 8 out of 10.

If you liked Clannad, or just like drama's, i dont think you will dislike this.

38. Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic (2012)
Very decent series, I have high expectations for season 2.

Problems with season 1:
Cliched characters; nothing new. Main character is a stereotypical "Moralfag" if I may; his sidekicks Aladdin and redhair is mister "though shall not kill" and "badass" sidekick which is a good fight, but wants to get stronger. Aaaaand to top it of, none of them are adults.
Some of the other side characters may turn out interesting though, as said, high expectations for season 2.

Very strait forward story so far. Some background stories here and there and a bit of side story the first episodes made the main story a little slow paced. In other words, there wasn't very much progress until the last episodes.

A bit too childish for my current taste.

Worth watching if you like a decent shounen.

40. Gungrave (2003)
Gungrave was a decently good show. I have read reviews saying "Best anime of all time", but that is just exaggerated. The show is flawed...
The start is slow. Takes half the show before he becomes Gungrave. The art and animation isn't any special, beneath average i would say. The soundtracks was pretty standard, nothing special... and the only thing that actually stood out, was a above average was the storyline, which wasn't the best either, but better than average.

The plot in Gungrave follows the protagonist Brandon Heat and his friend

42. Black Lagoon (2006)
Black Lagoon is the name of a company ....
Story wise is the series run by 3 and 3 episodes arcs. The quality of the arcs were pretty big imo, because while some of them were truly bad-ass, i found myself bored in others.

One thing about this show which bothered me a bit, which is important to not think about is how extremely unrealistic they manage to make every single action scene. I get the point, its kind of what they are trying to do, but I would have liked it a lot more if there weren't 15 people shooting at the main character missing from a feat away...

In the end I found myself very entertained and pleased with the series. It has cool characters, some awesome arcs, one of the best dubs ive heard... ever, and also, some insanely cool action scenes.
If you are looking for something with not too much of a plot, but you can just sit back and enjoy some popcorn while enjoying a gunfight, Black Lagoon is definitely what you are looking for :)

43. Rurouni Kenshin: Wandering Samurai (1996)
I finished watching this anime only a few days ago (written October 12th) and this is a great anime as expected. The protagonist Himura Kenshin is a legendary manslayer from a war in Kyoto that happened under the revolution ten years back. To repel for his sins he makes an oath never to kill again, but wanders around with a reversed blade sword (which he can't kill with) which he tries to save as many lives as he can with.

The show itself is really good. There are great fighting scenes, humor involved, drama and a pretty good storyline.
One of the downsides though is the fillers. Season 3 (after episode 62) are just fillers that has nothing to do with the mange (or at least that is what i've heard). I watched season 3 myself though and it is divided into 2 stories plus some episodes between these stories about nothing. Kinda like fillers to the fillers.

What many people recommend is watching until you reach season 3 (stop at episode 62), then continue by watching the 4 OVA's, and then read the manga from where season 2 left off (Free to read: http://www.mangareader.net/118/rurouni-kenshin.html, act 151 was the last episode in season 2) and end off with the movie.

Haven't read the manga myself, don't know if I shall yet... Have seen the whole series, the OVA's and the movie.
Great stuff, highly recommended.

46. Durarara!! (2010)
From the makers of Baccano! I present to you Durarara!!! Another great show, though not as good as its predecesor. "Why?", you ask. Well ...
First and foremost, Baccano!'s plot seems much more thought through. They knew what they were doing, they knew what they wanted out of the show and probably how they wanted their plot to be.
Durarara!! on the other hand, seems much more like a "here and now" kind of show. Ofc. they had planned much of it, but there were also many unknown factors which made some wholes in the plot and also made it weaker.
I think they focused way too much on the stories of each character, for example. I see how they want to tell us about the characters, but an entire episode for so many characters with a show on 24 episodes, is simply too much (imo). The introduction of the characters are not at all boring though, (well.. some are better than others), but the thing is that when they are done with the characters they have less than half the show left to come up with a plot.
Sadly though the plot goes only downhill from here and this is where the ratlins slowly decreases.

Plot, bad
Characters, good

48. Hellsing Ultimate (2006)
Bloodiest series i have ever seen... And i have seen Elfen Lied.
Hellsing Ultimate is truly a... bizarre show. They have these insanely epic fights and scenes which i haven't had since i saw Fullmetal Alchemist.

Alucard, the main character is original, but sadly his coolness points goes down as he is only his masters slave, and can't act on his own. The story started off well, but my interest faded away after each episode that went by.
Seriously, if I had a nickle for every minute of every monologue in this series i would be rich... But don't get me wrong, monologues are fine, but the ones in this series are WAY over dramatized and makes my spine twist and ears cry, and also... they are fcking boring.
The show kind off reminds me off Breaking Bad, I hoped every minute off it that it would get better, but it never did :(
All in all, watch it!

49. Claymore (2007)
I remember back in the days when i had barely seen any animes. Claymore was one of the series i had read good things about.
I was really skeptical at first because i didn't like the animations and also i hated the english voice for Raki. After I hit episode 8, i really started to get a liking to the show. The plot is overall pretty good, but the ending was kind off disappointing to me...
7/10, a decent program with okay characters and a good plot.

Summary: Dat raki ruined the show

Claymore: Dub vs Sub
I watched it dubbed, and did i get used to Raki's awful voice? No... Seriously, its really THAT bad.

1 out of 10; not one single thing has been done right...

2 out of 10; boring as hell, and everything from animations to story-line sucks, and i'd rather stab myself with a knife in the eye than re-watch it.

3 out of 10; the series is boring as hell, and i should have quit after the 2nd episode.

4 out of 10; still horrendously bad, but damn them, the animations were probably decent.

5 out of 10; you still shouldn't consider watching this. Still really bad.

6 out of 10; cliche characters, a bad story and things like that. May have a character that is "saving" the series (*cough* Alucard *cough*) or decent soundtracks, okay ending etc. I never recommend anyone seeing a 6 rated series.

7 out of 10; this may be good and may be bad depending on how high on the list it is. Anohana almost qualifies for 8, while Elfen Lied almost qualifies for 6, and that's a big difference.

8 out of 10; A great series, but there is something missing. It doesnt have the little extra which we get by watching the best series. Should really be seen.

9 out of 10; unlike 8, this NEEDS to be seen no matter what genres you're into. A rated 9 is the best of the best, maybe not the best ending, or a bit disappointing soundtracks, but fck it, the storyline, characters just exceeds it by far. Watch it... Go.

10 out of 10; im having a hard time finding bad things to say about it, im blinded by the constant aura of awesomeness the series brings just by watching a picture of the cover. Obviously needs to be watched.

Decent list in my opinion, glad Elfen Lied is on there.

Funny you liked Baccano! so much, I can't get into it.

Definitely do watch Full Metal Brotherhood and Ghost in the Shell.
Posted: 2 years ago at Dec 13 20:29
Thanks :)
Well, you're saying "can't", like if you are seeing it atm or like you haven't finished it. The first episodes in Baccano! can be pretty confusing and may scare people a bit, but if you have seen all of it and still don't like it, i guess that would still be okay. ^^ After all, it's a pretty subjective matter.

As it goes for FMA I will save it for something like my fiftieth or hundredth, want to save the best for last or at least not use it right away...
and I will see Ghost in the Shell after Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo, which I am going to see after I am done with Hellsing + Ultimate :)

I don't doubt it, though I have already seen 5 of the 10 series I think will be in my "final top 10" (as you can see in the end of my description).

Reply to following:

finn123 - Thanks, I have high expectations for Gintama, but because of it's length I will postpone seeing it to the summer break.

vontajd - Golgo 13 looks great, I'll add it to my "want to watch" list. And sry about the HOTD thing, just not my genre I think.

TheTrickster - I'll probably see Naruto, One Piece and Bleach sometime around the autumn or something (at least One Piece and then Naruto), oh and also Fairy Tail.

WolfsCryToo - The "Should I watch this shit?" section only consists of great animes, I was only a bit more picky when I first created the list, but don't get me wrong, d.gray man and all the other series in that section will probably be awesome.

Posted: 1 year, 8 months ago at Apr 22 7:39
yeah.... Naruto... hmm.... yeah... no...

Well, the thing about Naruto is that there are certain things about it that draws my attention away from it.
First and foremost, it's a shounen, which is a genre i actually isn't that fond of, though ironically enough Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is the best series I have ever seen...
Another thing is the absurd amount of fillers which is my second draw back.
My last concern is the number of episodes.

I will end up seeing the show, so no worries ;) But I'll wait till sometime around next summer when I have seen most of the other animés I want to see first.
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at Apr 25 14:47
You will absolutely love Blood +. The story is very developed and well thought out, The characters have personality, and it has a not too long/not too short episode count of 50. You grow very emotionally attached to the characters, and it has an extremely rewarding and emotional ending. (I bawled like a baby for 10 minutes after.) I also recommend Black Butler, but I won't make this comment any longer with another description. Happy viewing!
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at Apr 29 10:17
k, I'll watch Blood+ and Black Butler after i'm done with Hunter x Hunter and the remake :)
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at May 5 22:13
Well, i didn't not like Angel Beats though, I just thought it was mediocre. I gave it a 7 out of 10 after all. The reason it has such a low ranking is that I have almost only seen good animes this far...
As for Rosario i will probably not see it before next year or late this year. My "to watch list" is starting to get really big now...
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at May 14 21:48
Nice list, too bad Angel Beats is underrated cause it was great (especially the ending). On the other hand I feel Death Note is overrated, but that happens in most top lists. Nice to see Berserk high. I agree FMA:B for the 1st place, would give Angel Beats 3rd. And 2nd would go to.. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Seriously, you should watch it ASAP. Same with Evangelion and Fate - how could you miss those? Fairy Tail is definitely the no1 "long" (100+ eps) anime ever so I'm sure you will like it. Also don't waste your time on Gintama cause it sux so hard, it's hard to describe. I watched 140 eps (so u can't say "He watched 2 eps and he knows nothing") and it is my 1st and only anime I didn't have the power to finish...
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at May 16 8:09
I don't really see how it is underrated... I have 3 comments about the show telling me to watch it and saying that it deserves a higher spot, but not only is the show mediocre in about every way possible, but it was also way to rushed, which kind off ruined its potential. In my opinion it deserves its spot...

I haven't missed Fate/Zero, Gurren Lagann and Evangelion. As you can see on my "Going to watch" list, they are all tier 1, which means I have really high expectations for them. Also all of them are listed on my "Top 20" in the description.

There are many people not liking Gintama it appears, but there are way more people praising it. Also I like the random humor the show provides. Many people has commented that it gets to random for them, but I like random in comedy ^^
And btw, I like that you have seen 140 episodes of it before saying you didn't like it :) I don't like when people only have seen the first few episodes of a show and judges it thereafter.
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at May 16 8:46
When saying "missed" I ment that you didn't yet watch them, but nevermind. I forgot about another really great anime, one of the best I saw (and I saw a lot), which is Last Exile. I think you should like it. Also, if you're into ecchi I can recommend Sekirei.
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at May 16 11:36
I am going to watch them this summer. As said in the description "In my summer break I will try to see 300 episodes (10 series) in one week. Following series will be seen during that week.
Monster, Fate/Zero, Mushi-shi, Guardian of the Sacred Spirit, Gurren Lagann, Welcome to the NHK, Wolf's Rain, X and Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I also am looking forward to watching Last Exile :)
(Btw not a big fan of ecchi ^^)

Great Teacher Onizuka and Blue Exorcist thats the things u need watch they are epic i would like to find a anime like Great tracher Onizuka if u have any to recommend but thats the 2 u need to watch here are some more you may like:
Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou,High School DxD, Sword Art Online.
try watching these 3 animes to :D
Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at May 18 20:30
I'll watch them both as soon as possible... My "next series im going to watch" list is starting to get pretty big though.

I don't think you will find any animes that are just like GTO, but if you are looking for a great anime with the same humoristic value i think you should try out Welcome to the NHK. It is just as well praised as GTO and I think it should live up to it's reputation.

Ok so I've only recently getting into anime so I don't know many of these but like your list and am using it as a reference of what to watch. One question have you seen soul eater or plan on watching it? I found it amazing and think you should check it out.

Haven't seen Soul Eater yet, but i'll probably watch it this summer.
Posted: 1 year, 6 months ago at May 23 23:37
Oh and thanks for introducing me to shingeki no kyojin it's amazing

a suggestion
watch toaru majutsu no index(my #1) and chrome shelled regios
they r the best
u can also try brave 10,sao and aw
if u liked clannad u should kannon(by the same author) too

I think that dragon ball gt should be a last ditch anime to watch but it needs some dbz..... and soul eater is great if you like hellsing

A small recommendation from me, which I just finished watching:
Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?
Very entertaining. It may look like ecchi at first, but it's not one.

Oh my lord, you are gonna love Black Butler so much. It's a bit dark, but you expect that from a kid who made a deal with a demon, right? Anyway, make sure to watch Black Butler II too, because the ending in that one totally rockets the show up the charts. It was an insane and amazing watch, and i've rewatched it several times already. I suggest you watch it in dub, becuase they have cute england accents. :3 (unless you want a more serious mood)

Attack on Titan... most Awesome, bloodcurdling, ridiculously intense anime!!! I'm on episode 16, waiting for the next one to come out!! Fantastic stuff, dig the whole dystopia vibe!!! Also really recommend hunter x hunter 2011. Great animation.

I have no respect for this list. Ghost in the Shell SAC isn't in your top three. It's the best anime ever made. Period.
Posted: 1 year, 4 months ago at Aug 8 7:52
Do yourself a favor and watch D. Gray-man. There are only 50 odd episodes in english but the show is so good I watched the rest of the series in japanese. It's amazing, starts off good, but gets better and better til the very end. Definitely one of my favourite animes of all time.

"I have no respect for this list. Ghost in the Shell SAC isn't in your top three"

Can't be in the top 3 if i havent seen it.
Though I dont think it will reach that high either since it isn't my genre.

I'm a huge fullmetal fan, (brotherhood and original), and code geass! A lot of these i still need to see, but i love d.gray man, black butler, bleach, and for some humour ones,: ouran highschool host club, fruits basket, and xxxholic. (sort of). try any of these that you haven't seen
Posted: 1 year, 4 months ago at Aug 14 10:39

You can check out my list if you want.
Posted: 1 year, 2 months ago at Sep 22 22:01
Will do :)
Posted: 1 year, 2 months ago at Oct 14 16:57
the best list ever!!
and...do you know when the second season of shingeki no kyojin will be on air
Posted: 1 year, 2 months ago at Oct 14 23:07
Thanks :)
Well, a season 2 isn't even confirmed, so a worst case scenario would be no airing at all.
The show is very popular though, and will most likely get a second season confirmed sooner or later. If we're lucky we get a new season next year, but imo. it wont come out until 2015 or something. As I said though, nothing is confirmed.

You should check out A certain scientific railgun. I really liked that one. But didn't care as much for the others in the series.
Posted: 8 months, 1 week ago at Apr 15 10:21
I loved you list. I watched anime (FMA, FMA brotherhood, black butler, cowboy bebop, samurai champloo, death note) and I was looking for a new anime to watch and I saw your list. Loved you comments, I will surely check most of them now.

bookmarking it :)

I'm a fan of certain Gundam series. If you do review it, make sure to mention that each gundam series may or may not be completely different from the last. Always new characters and Gundams per series and different (years/generations/universes?) per series. Gundam Wing and Gundam 00 are awesome and I've heard good things about the 08th MS team.

However, I absolutely hate G Gundam, SD Gundam, etc. Little mini gundams? Kids piloting Gundams? Dudes that have to dress in high tech, tight spandex suits in order to operate a Gundam? those are all ingredients of G Gundam, SD Gundam, and Gundam AGE series that make me cringe and I will never watch them all the way through because I feel like carving my eyes out of my skull when I see it, ugh...

So with that said, give Gundam Wing and 00 a shot if you enjoy sci-fi action and heavily equipped, giant robot, space battles. Also, there is a lot of political and military dialogue that helps push the plot, so I watch the English dub as to not be distracted by the text and rapid explosions.

A few of my faforite anime's are FMA(brotherhood also), Steins Gate, Death note, Sword art online and code geass. I also really like Pandora Hearts but that isn't on this list and unfortunatly there also is just one season :(. But still, I really like that anime.
Posted: 6 months, 2 weeks ago at Jun 2 6:50
Ha! Nice to see that you added No Game No Life in there. That anime is great so far! I like that even now you're proceeding to update the list. I always come here to check for new anime to watch! Your list is 10/10 to me!!
Posted: 5 months, 1 week ago at Jul 9 2:33
Hello nice list so far but I'm missing a really great anime in this list, where's Macross Frontier at? :P I haven't met many people that know that series but it is top 20 material, especially if you count the movies in too. Give it a shot, it's definately worth it ;)
Posted: 5 months, 1 week ago at Jul 10 17:25
In magi the actual main character is aladdin . The anime is just stupid. It starts in the middle of the manga.
