THE ANIME LIST

Postby Eric O. » Sat Apr 26, 2008 5:53 pm

Hey all. Please post a list of all of your favorite anime series (and if you want, maybe a sentence or two saying why you like each series). I'd really like to get a huge list of some of the greatest ones out there. Please read earlier posts though, so we don't get repeats.

When we have something semi-complete, I'd like to host this on the CJAS website. Maybe we can even do a collaborative rating and comment system to guide people in the right directions for highly regarded popular things first? Then they can take a look at the "less popular" ones to see which ones they personally appreciate.

Just to give you some ideas (in no particular order):
(and feel free to add comments for any of these, because this is just a compiled list that I got from speaking to a number of people (including the great Ned) outside of showing one night)


(And I apologize in advance for any typos. I don't know some of these shows and I frantically tried to write these down as people tossed suggestions at me, heh)

Yeah...lots of people have different taste in anime. My list would be pretty long, so I'll maybe go through it later, but in general it seems like you're going to get a gigantic list with little to no agreement on what should be in it.

edit: Besides Cowboy Bebop. Obviously that's at the top of everyone's.

Holy crap, man. The man's name is "Miyazaki". Under Miyazaki, you should have "My Neighbor Totoro" (as opposed to 'tororo'), "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind", and "Howl's Moving Castle".

Also, it's "Gankutsuou". Officially, it's "Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo", I guess.

Fix these because you might have trouble finding them with such flagrant spelling errors. And also because bad spelling makes me want to bleed you dry.

Edit.
Anime unlisted thus far:
Le Chevalier d'Eon
Sketchbook ~full color's~ (episodes 5, 11)
The Cat Returns
Scrapped Princess
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 1st GIG
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 1st GIG
Grave of the Fireflies
Jungle wa itsumo Hale nochi Guu
Kite

There is a whole section on the eboard site for anime reviews, but no one really uses it anymore. Having a big club list of favorite anime is unrealistic, but it is fun to talk about shows you like so here it goes,

Things you listed I also really like:

Evangelion
Trigun
Cowboy Bebop
Code Geass
Ouran High School Host Club
Revolutionary Girl Utena
nausicaa
Read Or Die OAV
Macross
Welcome to the NHK
Martian Successor Nadesico
FLCL
Paranoia Agent
Yu Yu Hakusho
Kenshin
Haibane Renmei
Great Teacher Onizuka
Banner of the Stars I
Crest of the Stars
Noir
Ghost in the Shell
Akira
Ranma 1/2
Kino's Journey
Kare Kano
Gunbuster
Black Lagoon
Spice and Wolf
Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Fullmetal Alchemist
Gankutsuoh
Millennium Actress
Serial Experiments Lain
Monster
Fullmetal Panic/Fumoffu/Second Raid
Death Note

Things you listed that I dislike:

Fruits Basket
Zega Pain
Bleach
RahXephon

I'm neutral about or I haven't seen enough/any to really pass judgment on the rest of the list.

Shows I would add:

PLanetES
Legend of the Galactic Heroes
12 Kingdoms
Berserk
Claymore (before it diverges from manga)
Beck
Touch
Yakitate
Gundam 08th MS Team
Bamboo Blade

As lepidoptera also added:
Code Geass
Elfen Lied
Hikaru no Go
Nodame Cantabile
Paradise Kiss
Welcome to the NHK!

I could have made a list of shows I think are good but not great, but that would very long... I'm probably forgetting some things I really like, but oh well.

Don't forget Paprika (and any other Satoshi Kon not yet mentioned). You should also add the Eva movies too. As for other shows not yet mentioned I would add:
Ergo Proxy
Gunslinger Girl
Hell Girl
Yukikaze
Eureka Seven (screw you all I like this show)
And, lest we forget....GIANT ROBO!

Just so we stop ragging on Eric's eclectic and badly spelled list, this was the gigantic list of anime a bunch of people recommended to Eric the weekend Ned visited, and I'd been bugging him to post it up somewhere as reference because I, at least, have problems thinking up stuff to nominate and/or recommend when the time comes.

You know what would be a lot easier? A list of all the anime I've ever seen.

http://www.animenfo.com/myanimedb.php?userid=22449

I think it's safe to say that I liked the majority of them, at least, the one's I've finished.

I agree.

Granted, the site's apparently down right now, but when (if) it comes back, you should see a lot of stuff there, and I tend to be really nice in my grading. :P

I took the opportunity of marathon to fill out my own list. It is by no means complete, but here you go:
