Simply because I am feeling social right now (holy ****, what?) I want all anime lovers to post their top 10 (or top 5. w/e you want) favorite animes in the comments section. You can, if you want, have explanation for why you chose the anime you listed. Here is my list:
10. Fooly Cooly (FLCL)
Crazy as ****, why not?
9. Sword Art Online
It has its faults, but it takes place in an MMORPG, how cool is that?
8. Sonic X
Because I am a child on the inside :p and it has its fair share of action and comedy (if you are into subs)
7. Swords of a Stranger
This is a movie, but it was simply amazing. I recommend it. Watch it. NOW O_O
This was one of those animes that I wish were longer, but it was great the way it was. So many emotions mmf!
Independently, I do not choose to watch bloody anime, my friend usually makes suggestions to me. But this was too good to stay away from. Good balance of murder, mayhem, and plot.
4. Soul Eater
Comedy/Action level: High like a pothead.
3. Mirai Nikki (Future Diary)
Non-stop action and crazy love bitches. Sure, why the **** not?
2. Clannad/Clannad: After Story
Animation, characterization, storyline... it is all so perfect.
Holy ****, a non-cliche romance anime? And with a good story and characters? Sign me up.
(I am currently watching Code Geass, which will probably bump itself into the top 3. If you mention why you like the anime you picked, please try not to give away spoilers for those who have not viewed, okay? :p)
Have fun posting ^.^
