Well, everyone. Here it is. The big one. After countless top tens, I have finally made it to here. My favorite anime of all time. Now, a few rules before we begin. I need to have watched the anime before I can post it. Also, I am going to post anime that I like. If an anime that you like isn’t here, then, sorry, but that’s my opinion. And, lastly, I am including anime movies on this list, because, there are just so much awesome anime movies, that they just had to make my Top 50. You got all that. Then grab a snack and relax yourself, because here we go…. I’m serious about the snack thing. You’re gonna be here for a while
#50: Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt - Wow, wow, wow, WOW! Now, when it comes to a show that is filled to the brim with more immature humor in the history of mankind, it would seem this kind of anime would NEVER make it to my list. But, I do actually like the show… kinda, which is why it’s only number fifty. Sure, the immature humor didn’t really interest me. What did interest me was how the two main characters, Panty and Stocking, actually represent two of the 7 Deadly Sins. Panty, being a sex driven maniac, represents lust, whereas Stocking, a girl with a massive sweet tooth, represents gluttony… but, you probably knew that and I just wasted your fucking time, and I apologize. Also, the fight scenes were some of the best in anime. Sure, this did have to lead to the company blowing lots of money on animation, and had to resort to flash animation, but, in the end, was it worth it. Well, after seeing their fight with the Demon Sisters, I can assure you, FUCK YES, IT WAS WORTH IT! Sure, the humor isn’t for everyone. Hell, I don’t even like this anime for the jokes. But, I can overlook that, and see what this anime is. An action packed series that doesn’t take anyone’s shit
#49: Highschool of the Dead - Well, a harem anime was gonna appear on this list sooner or later, so, why not choose a harem that has something I love… and it’s not breasts. It’s zombies. I was always a zombie fan, and when I heard there was an anime about zombies, I HAD to watch it. Sure, this anime shoves breasts and panty shots down your throat more than one of those false advertisements for….. uh…… stuff that guys would know, but it makes up for it with its visuals (IN THE ENVIRONMENTS, NOT THE WOMEN), and it’s awesome action packed scenes. Not only do the fight scenes look awesome, but they are always appearing in every episode, letting you see at least one cool thing, and one thing that isn’t a girls breasts breaking all three of Newton’s laws. Just like Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt, this anime isn’t for everyone, but, if you’re a zombie fan, like me, then you should give this anime a try
#48: When They Cry - Now, this is just one fucked up anime in so many ways. Sure, I only recently watched it, and that was mainly for the visuals, but after watching it some more, goddamn, it was scary as hell. Hell, the animation in this anime doesn’t even prepare you for what you are about to see SPOILERS It’s torture by death. While, an anime that is as violent and bloody as this one may drive people away from it, I actually kinda like it. It dwells into the insanity of a character that looks so innocent at first glance, showing us that people aren’t really what they seem to be, and that’s what made me keep watching this anime… Even though I saw a person stab themselves to death, but, I digress. If you want to see a good psychological horror anime, then here is something for you
#47: Ouran Highschool Host Club - Now, I am always up to watch an anime about highschool, thanks to a certain anime. (We’ll get to that one later, don’t you guys worry). Now, what I love best about this anime is how I watched it thinking it was gonna be some sort of Hentai. I’m not kidding. My friends said that this anime was about a club of boys that entertain female clients. Seriously, just think of that, and tell me it doesn’t sound like some animator wanting to make a quick buck, so he writes a hentai. Thankfully, it wasn’t hentai. It was a great high school anime. And goddamn, it was amazing. The characters were brilliantly portrayed, and I just love the humor in this series. Seriously, you should watch it. You won’t regret it.
#46: Yu-Gi-Oh - Now, this anime is more based off nostalgia, from watching it when I was a kid. I remember it was about cards, and some kid with REALLY crazy hair… and that’s about it. Hey, I was five at the time. I couldn’t tell the difference from a plot and a goddamn sack of month old potatoes. All I can remember is that I watched it and I REALLY loved it. And how can you not love an anime about a card duel involving giant monsters fighting… and for a five year old boy, that kind of stuff was awesome. It’s like giving a kid a life sized cyborg dinosaur. Kids eat that stuff up like macaroni... wait, what were we talking about… Oh, right, Yu-Gi-Oh. This anime was always a favorite of mine growing up, and it’s still great today… can’t say the same for the later adaptations though. Egh.
#45: Corpse Party: Tortured Souls - I honestly don’t know how I came to watching this anime. I just found it one day, and said “Eh, I got nothing better to do” and just watched it… and thank GOD I did. This anime is really a mind fucker… in a good way, of course. I never played the Corpse Party games before watching this anime, so I had NO idea what I was getting myself into… and it was a massive horrifying gore fest, with a bunch of schoolkids dying, and a well thought out story. Yeah, this anime may not have appealed to everyone, and it isn’t the most popular anime around, but, if you want a good horror anime, then this is right up your alley.
#44: Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo - Oh, man, I know I am going to annoy some people just by mentioning this anime. Now, people everywhere have said that this is the dumbest anime in the world… and I agree. It is dumb, but that’s the point. This anime is made to be as stupid as possible, and that is what makes this anime so hilarious. Sure, when you think of an anime about a bunch of villains wanting to make the world bald, and a hero with nose hairs used as whips fighting and the show has a whole bunch of crazy shit in it, it just sounds dumb right then and there… but that’s what I love about this anime. It’s stupidity just makes it so funny. Sure, this anime isn’t for everyone… but, I’m not like everyone, so it’s perfect for me
#43: Lucky Star - Now, all anime fans have to know this anime to just know anime. I mean, this anime’s main character is on the banner at the very top. That kinda means she’s popular. Now, when I heard someone made an anime where a gaming anime fan is the main character, all I could think of was “... Someone made an anime of me”? Sadly, no. But, that’s a good thing. This anime tries to relate to the viewer, and it did a good job. It shows the common life of a gaming anime fan, letting the viewer feel glad when watching this anime. It shows that creators of anime actually care about their viewers. If only American cartoon creators were as caring.
#42: Another - Now, this is another anime I recently watched, but goddamn, its good. I never would have expected to like an anime that is this violent, especially since high school students die left and right…. man, high school students die a lot in anime, huh… now, I’m kinda glad I’m not in anime. Anyway, this horror anime is just so freaky, especially with Mei, being so goddamn scary. I’m not kidding when I say that her appearance and personality kinda scared me. And with people dying left and right, that didn’t help… at all. Still, this is an amazingly well written horror anime. And if you wish to watch it, please do. It’s amazing
#41: Dragon Ball Z Kai - I’ve pissed off people with this comment before… so, lets do it again. I do not like the original Dragon Ball Z. Thankfully, the creators created Dragon Ball Z, or, as I like to call it “The DBZ’s Apology Letter to Windwakerguy430”. This anime fixed all of the problems that I had with the original, and I am glad they did fix it. Sure, the original fans may hate this anime, but all I can think is how can anyone hate this. It’s amazing. It’s like hating a remake to a movie because….. uh….. Okay, everyone hates movie remakes. That was a terrible example. But, you know what I mean. This anime is just so good. The fight scenes are amazing, the characters are more lovable, and I just can’t help but ask for more. I WANT MORE OF THIS ANIME, PLEASE!!!
#40: Sonic X - Hey, remember FuckKids. Those bastards that tried to censor out Sonic X and another anime and try to fuck up their reputations, and nearly succeeded and made them sign the National Anthem and made me want to burn down their company. Well, they had to try harder if they wanted me to hate Sonic X. No way, this anime was still awesome. Even though I am more of a Mario fan, I was always willing to play Sonic games. I did like Sonic games when I was a kid, but when I saw a Sonic TV show, I just had to watch it. This was another nostalgic show, right next to Yu-Gi-Oh, only, a thousand times more awesome. I mean, IT’S SONIC THE FUCKING HEDGEHOG! The fastest thing since the goddamn Flash. Even though people don’t like this anime (AND IT’S ALL THANKS TO YOU, 4KIDS! FUCK YOU), I still love this anime very much.
#39: Sword Art Online - Now, people have asked me to put this anime on my Top Ten Overrated Anime List… why… Okay, that’s a dumb question. I can see why. The woman look like they are useless without someone to help them, and a game like this would get sued more than gaming companies get sued by Jack Thompson. But, the story is still pretty good, and the fight scenes…. OH MY GOD, the fight scenes. And when that epic music is added. I swear to god, this anime is going to make me lose all my shit, just with its fight scenes alone. Yeah, it may have a few problems, but, no anime is perfect. Sword Art Online is no exception.
#38: Clannad: After Story - Oh, god. This anime… This anime… Oh, god, it’s too sad. I can’t explain it… Ah, I can explain it. This anime was so beautiful, story wise and visually wise. This anime had some of the best animation I had seen at the time, and the story… Oh, my god. This anime has to have one of the most tear jerking stories I have ever seen in my entire life. It’s just way too beautiful… Until and ending went and fucked it up… but, I won’t spoil it, not here, not now. It is still a great anime, that I love very much. I would recommend you all watching it if you have the time
#37: Sgt. Frog - Oh, god, this anime. It brings back so many memories. So many very very very very VERY fucked up memories. But, a good kind of fucked up. This anime was just so goddamn funny. It’s like your favorite comedy anime that has a talking animal in it. And this anime is just hilarious. Not only is Sgt. Frog one of the most hilarious anime characters ever, with his psychotic personality about invading earth, but the 4th wall jokes just make this anime fantastic. Seriously, go watch it. You won’t regret it
#36: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time - Well, here is the first anime movie. Get used to it, it’s gonna appear a lot from here on out. Now, when you think of an anime that involves time travel.. not a lot come up… for me, anyway. For you all, probably. But, anyway, this anime is just amazing. Even though the story is just about time travel, and a character using this to her advantage, it still manages to be very tragic in more than one way. Now, how can time travel be tragic. Simple. WHEN YOU FUCK IT UP! AND FUCKING THAT KIND OF STUFF UP IS EASY! Of course, I won’t say how, just know that this was one of the first anime movies in years that made my eyes open wide with anticipation, and that doesn’t happen to me easily
#35: Mirai Nikki - Or, Future Diary if you want to complain about it. Now, this anime is basically what you get if you gave Overly Attached Girlfriend her own anime… with lots more violence in it as well. Yuno has to be one of the most psychotic anime characters ever… and it kinda scares me. This is the kind of character that haunts the viewer just as much as characters in the anime. And it takes a lot to just do that, but Yuno just so happened to do it. And that makes it more scary, really. But, that’s good, because it shows that the writers know what they are doing and are using it to the best of their abilities. And, lets not forget that this anime, while fucked up at times, has a really good story, that anyone can fall in love with in just one viewing of this show. I did, so, I think it will work for the rest of the world
#34: Welcome to the N.H.K - Now, what I love about this anime is that this answers the world most important question. No, it doesn’t answer why people are here, and what our purpose is. It answers “What do video game creators do behind the scenes”. Sure, they seem like your usual creators that work together, but, what if it’s just a couple guys. This anime shows the characters suffering from all sorts of problems in their lives, like family problems, work problems, school problems, financial problems, all the problems. You name it. This anime lets us sympathy with the characters, who just want to make something great, but are suffering from all sorts of problems in the middle of it. Kinda like Bakuman.. but, with video games
#33: Serial Experiments Lain - Now, this anime… is a little hard for me to explain. Now, even though I loved it, it still kinda confused me. Maybe I’m just dumb, I don’t know. Anyway, when I heard this was a communistic sort of government that controlled the people and the main character needed to find out the mystery of some sort of internet clone, I was sucked in… yeah, it’s a lot better sounding when you watch the anime. Of course, the anime stopped at some point, and never continued it…. But, Funimation got the rights and continued it, so its all good now.
#32: Pokemon - Oh, god… the nostalgia. Now, if you all remember my original favorite anime list, you all know that I ranked Pokemon TOO DAMN HIGH! Just because its nostalgic, that doesn’t make this anime the best anime ever made. But, I still love this anime very much. This was the first anime I ever loved. Pretty common for a starter anime, if you asked me. I never played a Pokemon game before I watched it, so I got all my Pokemon info off the anime itself. I loved Pokemon so much, I actually bought so much merchandise form it. I still have it too, and I am NOT getting rid of it, Mom. Stop talking about it
#31: My Neighbor, Totoro - Oh, man, this movie is just so amazing. Now, even though this anime wasn’t very story driven as much as other anime movies, it was still a beautiful movie. This movie shows two kids exploring their new home town, and meeting fascinating creatures, one of them being a friendly creature named Totoro. I loved this anime, because it showed what kids what imagine, and how they would behave, making me care for the characters more, because they were all believable. This movie, while not my favorite, is just so well written, and I say, better to show this to your kids then a show that teaches them how to successfully make a ball shot
#30: Pokemon Origins - WHAT! POKEMON ORIGINS IS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL POKEMON!? ….. Yeah. I like this anime better, because it follows the game more, and… well, isn’t that kinda the point of video game anime. But, this anime is also amazing, due to how well told it’s story is. Sure, you can’t really tell much of a story with Pokemon, but, this anime really knows how to do it. That’s why I love Pokemon Origins so much. Oh, and the secret Mewtwo idea? I see what you did their, writers. Here’s a medal.
#29: Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva - Man, do I love the Professor Layton series. It was a- No, I am talking about the movie. The games will be saved for another time. Anyway, what I love about this movie is how it stays true to the game series, giving Layton very challenging puzzles, which end up being clues that he can use to solve the mystery as to what’s going on. It also has a Layton style story, that I love very much. If you are a Layton fan, then you need to watch this movie. And if you aren’t, you STILL need to watch this movie
#28: Inuyasha - Damn, the memories with this anime. Now, even though I was much too young to watch this anime, I couldn’t help but wake up early in the morning, and turn this on just to watch it, and since it was usually the last thing on at that time, I was ALWAYS watching it by five o’clock each Saturday. And thank god I did, otherwise, I would have missed epic fight scenes with dangerous demons, and what I feel is one of the best love stories in an anime… okay, maybe there are better, but FUCK IT, I say. Still, I enjoyed this anime, and I am glad I watched it at a young age… that way, I wouldn’t have missed out on more anime later in my life
#27: Fullmetal Alchemist - Check it out, more anime that was around when I shouldn’t have watched it because I was too young, but I was too cool for rules to care… and by too cool, I was an idiot that thought anime to me was Sesame Street to the rest of the kids my age. I mean, come on, fight scenes with a bunch of bright colors, with awesome music. I could be birthed out of my mother and that is what I would want to see the very second I come out. Fullmetal Alchemist is just so amazing. I mean, you have so much shit going on, and so much lovable characters, and so much- Goddamn, I suck at explaining this. I know, but, hey, give me a break. I haven’t seen this anime in years. I plan on watching it again, just know that I love this anime, and I think the world agrees with me
#26: Akira - Now, for the guy (Or girl) Who posted all those questions and polls about this movie, THANK YOU! Without you, I wouldn’t have found this kick ass movie. It has everything I want. Fighting, bikes, superpowers, constant action, that one seen with the milk… Okay, that scene was a little weird, but this anime was still awesome. Now, Kiddies, please do cover your eyes, I will be talking about some adult stuff here. Even though this anime is good, it does show that it is very violent, but, in the world in Akira, and that world is going to hell, of course you’d see stuff like this. And that’s what makes it good. Showing what can happen if this was our world… And thank god it isn’t
#25: Hellsing Ultimate - Now, what can you do with a series that has a huge story in just eight episodes. A FUCK LOAD! That’s exactly what Hellsing Ultimate did. Now, for some odd reason, I found this anime thanks to TeamFourStars abridged series of Hellsing Ultimate. And, I should thank the, because Hellsing Ultimate is one of the best anime I have ever seen. But, seriously, if you haven’t seen Hellsing Ultimate abridged, you need to. Funny as hell. Anyway, it is amazing how this series begins with vampire hunting to having fucking war hungry Nazi’s. Well, that’s anime for you. Fucking with logic since… the 70’s I guess
#24: Persona 4 - Now, if there is any anime that follows its original source perfectly well, it is Persona 4. I mean, goddamn, it felt just like the game. And I have rarely seen an anime that does that. So, this is just like the game. Yu is the main character, there is a world inside the TV, murderers begin to appear, and I think their was a scene involving stake… I can’t remember. Anyway, this anime really treats its original source with some damn respect. It feels like these could be legit cutscenes from the game. I mean, not even Pokemon Origins could top this. And trust me, you need to have some damn good writing to do that. Congratulations, writers of Persona 4 anime
#23: Steins Gate - Okay, so, there are other time travel anime out there. I’m just a dumbfuck and haven’t noticed this until now. Now, this anime is basically the Dr. Who of anime… and with that, I love this anime already. But, anyway, this anime has probably some of the best character development I have seen, as the main character changes as the anime goes on. And that is what I love about this anime, and it also really shines in the second half of the series when, instead of being faced with simple jokes when he interacts with his peers, and instead, it begins to have a more darker tone on this series, which is where this series really made its part on my list. But, I have to ask. Does Stein hate pears?
#22: Trigun - Now, this anime is something I kinda forgot about. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I loved Trigun. It’s just been years since I last saw it. All I can remember is its THEME SONG THAT WAS RAINED DOWN BY THE FUCKING HEAVENS, in other words, its good, and I remember something about bounty hunters, six billion dollars, and a cat. Hard to say. This is just another nostalgia choice, and goddamn, was this anime amazing. At least, I remember it as amazing. Like I said, it’s been years since I saw it, so, my memory is a little blank
#21: Naruto - Yes, I said it. Naruto is my least favorite of the big three. But, that doesn’t mean I hate it. No, not at all. I absolutely love Naruto… the anime, not Naruto himself. Anyway, I was always wondering what the first anime about ninjas I should watch. And, Naruto was the winner. And, goddamn, I still don’t regret it to this day. I remember watching this back when I was in third grade, and I loved it so much. About eight years later, I still love the series. Even Naruto Shippuden is awesome as hell. I still can’t believe the series finally ended. At least it ended on a note. We’ll miss you, Naruto. Well, I will, but, you were popular, so, I guess lots of people will miss you- I’ll just shut up now
#20: Summer Wars - Now, I dare you to look me in the eyes and say “Summer Wars sucks”... You can’t do it. It’s impossible to say. Summer Wars was just too amazing. It had a great story, showing how civilization was reaching the highest point of technology. I mean, damn, this movie really showed how well made technology was, but it also showed how even the thing we cherish can cause the end of the world. Not to mention, the family in this movie is just amazing. I can’t help but love them. And I love this movie. It’s just so amazing, and the animation is beautiful. Then again, all anime animation is beautiful, but you know what I mean
#19: Code Geass - Now, I was always a fan of well written stories, but, DAMN! I haven’t seen a story like Code Geass’s story. It has rebellions, mechs, guns, and a whole bunch of other crazy shit that I can’t explain in just this one part. Also, the ending to this series was just amazing. I am not going to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t watched it. But, let’s just say, that the ending is a certain anime done right. I’m not gonna say what anime, just know, that Code Geass did the ending much better
#18: Baka and Test - I only recently started watching Baka and Test after a friend told me about it. And, needless to say, if I was homosexual, I’d kiss my friend on the mouth for telling me about this anime. This anime is just so goddamn funny. You thought Sgt. Frog had great humor, well, Baka and Test is like Sgt Frog if it was about more high schools. Now, let me just tell you, the main character is a total idiot, so, it is a perfect role for this show. And when you have characters like a very violent girl, a pervert with a camera, a kid who no one knows the gender of, and a child abusing school staff member, then… that sounds a lot more fucked up then you’d think, but, trust me, it’s good
#17: Gregory Horror Show - Let’s talk about a CJI anime…… Never heard of them, have you? Well, now you have. The Gregory Horror Show is a CJI horror anime, that takes place in a first person perspective, something that any show rarely does. It’s almost like a game… and, now, I am not talking about the Playstation 2 game. This anime has a great cast of horrifying characters. You have chef with a giant hatchet, a zombie cat that eats phones, a nurse who, I swear, has some sort of sexual desire for blood, and that’s only scraping the surface of the insane characters in this series. And, since each episode only lasted like two minutes each, you could easily finish the whole series in at least three hours.
#16: Angel Beats - Oh, goddamn it, not another tear jerking anime… sorry, sorry. Anyway, when I heard of an anime about angels, I thought “Must be a harem”. Then I heard it was about them being in the afterlife and they needed to move on to their next life…. and then I thought “Must be a harem”. But, seriously though, it isn’t. Angel Beats has some of the most lovable cast of characters I have ever seen in an anime, and I just feel so bad for them when something bad happens, or be happy when something good happens. And that ending… OH GODDAMN IT, NEXT ENTRY PLEASE, BEFORE I START CRYING!
#15: Hetalia - Yes, I know you will all get pissed because Hetalia didn’t make the Top Ten. But, the thing is, Hetalia is something I only recently watched. But, Hetalia is still amazing. I just love how it uses all countries stereotypes and makes fun of the countries with it… even though this anime could easily piss off a handful of people, but, do the creators give a fuck. No. And good thing they don’t, otherwise we wouldn’t have one of the funniest anime of all time
#14: Tokyo Godfathers - Now, when you think of a movie about a homeless man, a teenage runaway, and a transvestite trying to find an abandoned babies mother, you all think “What the fuck”. But, trust me, this movie is one of the best I had ever seen. There is no magic, no creatures, and no nothing anime like. It is all real life anime movie, showing the problems with the world around us, and yet, it also shows the beautiful things about it. This movie just shows us how amazing you can be with an anime movie, even without fantasy like things
#13: Bleach - Now, when Bleach was one of the first anime I had ever watched. Right up there with Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Inuyasha, and goddam, the best anime of my childhood. Sure, I didn’t know what the fuck a shinigami was at the time, and, really, I didn’t care. I just loved all the action and the giant monsters, and all that kind of stuck. That’s the kind of stuff that dragged 7 year olds like me at the time to watch their kind of stuff. And, it sure as hell worked. Good job, Madman Entertainment
#12: Black Lagoon - Now, there comes a time in an anime viewers life… who is a male anyway, where all they want to see is countless action going on, non-stop. Thankfully, Black Lagoon does just that. And it is fucking AWESOME. There are gunfights, fistfights, knifefights, swordfights, fuckfights, well, maybe not that last one, but, there are fight FUCKING EVERYWHERE! Also, this anime has the most kickass soundtrack I have ever heard. I can’t explain it here, you just need to watch this anime and you will know what I mean
#11: Fate/Zero - Now, I could have chosen Fate/Stay Night, but, that one didn’t really stick to me like Fate/Zero did. It stuck to me like chewed gum on the bottom of my shoes… and that’s a good thing. This anime has so many characters, that I can’t help that but love all of them, due to each one having a different personality, and having a different interest in winning the competition. And, those fucking fight scenes have to be some of the best in anime. Also, the soundtrack was created by the same guy who made the music for Sword Art Online… Do you need more of an explanation
Well, here it is. The Top Ten. Are you ready… no? Well, too bad. Here we go
#10: Grave of the Fireflies - Oh, goddamn it. Not this movie again. It’s like Clannad or Angel Beats only a million times sadder. Well, here it is, everyone. Grave of the Fireflies. This movie made me cry like a two year old. And how could it not. The movie follows a boy and his sister trying to survive in Japan during World War II. And, here, we get to see what happened during that time. And, goddamn it, America. Why’d you have to drop that fucking bomb. This just shows that war is never a good thing to be in, and why there just shouldn’t be one.
#9: Attack on Titan - Of course Attack on Titan was gonna make the list. Everyone has heard of Attack on Titan, and everyone loves Attack on Titan. And how could you not. It is one of the most popular anime of this generation. It has an amazing story, about a bunch of giant stupid naked monsters attacking people… Okay, it’s a lot cooler when you watch it. Trust me. This anime also has some of the best fight scenes, and the characters are all amazing and each one of them have a great personality, making me really care about them and their survival. Sadly, survival isn’t an option in this anime, obviously
#8: Soul Eater - Lets look at the anime that all my friends, including me, love. What is it about this anime that people love? Is it the unique art style and CJI that has never been seen in anime before this? Is it the great humor that you couldn’t find in any other anime? Is it the great cast of characters who we are always rooting for? Is it the epic fight scenes that are so awesome, that they rival that of the Big 3? Oh, what’s with all these stupid questions. Everyone knows its all of the reasons
#7: One Piece - That’s right. One Piece is my favorite of the Big Three. Now, even though this is my favorite, everyone else looks at One Piece as the worst of the Big Three. And you wanna know who’s fault it is… Of course, it’s FuckKids. No one likes them, and it’s because they almost ruined One Piece’s reputation. Almost, anyway. Thankfully, it is still going, and it is going STRONG! The fight scenes are just so epic, and all the characters have lovable personalities. Not to mention, the comedy gets me every time with this anime. Why do people hate this franchise so much.. okay, 4Kids is obviously to blame, but, still, I love this series so much. I just hope this anime gets more loved by the world.
#6: Baccano! - Now, I was always curious of what went on during the thirties… And, Baccano doesn’t do jack shit to tell me. But, it is still an awesome anime. It tells each characters story in awesome ways, and it shows how all of those stories tie together into one epic story of awesomeness. It has some awesome fights, whether with guns, fists, or knifes. Not to mention, just piecing the story together yourself is all the more rewarding once it is over. Oh, and that ending. FUCKING BRILLIANT! Trust me, you need to watch Baccano. This anime needs to be seen by more people.
#5: Elfen Lied - Now, it’s time to talk about my favorite horror anime of all time. Elfen Lied has to be the most disturbing anime I have ever seen in my life. It has graphic murder, nudity, strong language, child abuse, child rape, child murder, animal abuse, incest, and a psychotic little girl who enjoys seeing people in pain. Yet, its amazing how well told of a story this anime is. It has a great cast of characters, and a story so amazing, it feels as though the creators are the Japanese version of Stephen fucking King. To be honest, I didn’t know what I would expect from an anime titled Elfen Lied, but, I assure you, I didn’t expect one of the greatest anime of all time.
#4: Spirited Away - I remember this movie a lot from when I was six years old. This movie fascinated me when I was six. This movie showed so many fascinating creatures, and many wonderful characters. The animation was amazing to my six year old self. It was just so amazing to see this animation, mixed with a lovable cast of characters, and an amazing world of fantasy. It was just beautiful to me. It’s hard to have not fallen in love with Spirited Away, especially at the young age I was when I saw it. If you have not heard of this movie, then WHAT KIND OF PERSON ARE YOU! But, then again, who hasn’t seen this movie? And, tell me, who doesn’t love this movie?
#3: Death Note - WAIT, WHAT? I know what you are all thinking. Yes, I did make a review on this anime. Yes, I did say the second half wasn’t as good as the first. And, yes, I did say the ending was a fucking disaster. But, the thing it, the first half was amazing. Light has to be one of the greatest anime anti-heroes I have ever seen in an anime. All of the characters were wonderful, and giving us characters that no one has ever seen before in an anime. The story is also so well thought-out and so brilliantly made, that it is no wonder this anime got to popular. Oh, and Light’s laugh. Fucking amazing. Yeah, the second half may not have been good, but, the first half was so good, and I mean SO fucking good, that it made the top five. That’s how good it is
#2: Cowboy Bebop - Of course this one was gonna make the list. I mean, IT’S COWBOY FUCKING BEBOP! The greatest anime of all time… and it only made number two….. huh…. Anyway, this anime is amazing, mainly because, at the time, it gave us a brand new idea. I mean, Space bounty hunters going around and catching criminals in space. That is so fucking cool. Of course, the story is a lot more serious than that, and I love it because that. This anime had an original idea, an epic story, some of the most awesome characters I had ever seen in an anime, and it is just an epic story. Not to mention, it’s ending is one of the best I had ever seen in anime. And, now. All I can say is that, if they don’t have Space Cowboys in the year 2071, I’m gonna be really pissed
#1: Azumanga Daioh - Yes, I said it. A humorous story with adorable characters and humor beat Elfen Lied, Spirited Away, Death Note, and even the masterpiece Cowboy Bebop. Now, how is this possible. Well, probably because, none of the anime mentioned is relatable. That is why I chose Azumanga Daioh out of all of the anime on the list. Because, this anime is much more relatable. BUT, we’ll get to how in a few minutes. Now, lets talk about something else. The humor in this anime is just amazing. Sgt. Frog and Baka and Test may have some good humor, but they don’t even compare to Azumanga Daioh. Probably because the humor in this anime is something you could do in reality. It gives a sense of reality, making it much more lovable. Also, the characters are just like people you would meet in your own high school, making them more lovable. And, now lets talk about what truly made it number one. It’s giving off a sense of reality, but also nostalgia. It shows how people’s true high school experiences would have gone, making this anime great. That is why Azumanga Daioh is my favorite anime of all time
Goddamn, this took a lot of time to make, but, I just hope you all liked it. And, with that said, I will see you all next time
