Frankly, I really can't stand anime, with the exception of a very few, namely Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. I usually find the plots contrived and cliched. It's too much giant robots, neo-post apocalyptic Tokyo, what is a soul, blah blah blah, etc, kind of rubbish.

I once took a Japanese culture class when I was in college, and the teaching professor made it a distinct point to say that there would be NO discussion of anime in the class, even referring to the animation fans as "Japanimation freaks." It was pretty funny, and one guy actually got up and left class, never to return.

Honestly, I don't get what the big deal is with anime.

I don't like anime tv series too much. The only exception would be Hellsing.
My favorite movies are:
- Jin-Roh
- Blood - The Last Vampire
- Angel Sanctuary
- Princess Mononoke
- Grave of the Fireflies
more or less in that order.
There exists an internet anime realisation of the manga series 'Blame!' which is quite cool. not as good as the comic though. It hasn't advanced very far yet. I'm curious how it will develop.

Most of those arent anime arkard. Anime is meant to have a touch of sillyness in them. If they are hardcore then they are really more Manga.
And this thread will probably be closed, They dont take kindly to folks who take kindly to anime around here.

I'd vote for Cowboy Bebop, but it isn't up there...  I'm not big on anime either, but Bebop is the stuff!

Why's that? OK, I admit it's very likely that a similar thread already exists somewhere and i didn't check that before posting. But why should they have something against anime as long as it stays in the offtopic?

I am quite sure that all of these are real animes (except 'the last vampire' perhaps) but i don't want to start arguing about that. In my opinion animes don't have to be silly.

ITs just an opression thing. Tweek doesnt like it so he closes the threads. Only one anime review thread is allowed, byt hey maybe this one wont be closed.

The only Shows i have seen in that poll are Kenshin and DBZ.
Kenshin is Hc but has its sill moments, The DBZ the world knows and loves is Kiddy anime, the Old one is REally HC with lots of violence and sex.
Neon genesis is Anime, and its undisputably the best. ITs kick ass, and has silly moments too.
I saw prop on a Kenshin Disc about some new one that seems remarkably similar to NG, Bu i dont care, its looks good. Almost like a continuation of NG. Ripoff mebbe, But atleest its something in the genre' of NG.

You have Lupin and Big O but no Bebop, Trigun, Inu Yasha, Ranma 1/2, Vandred,Evangelion, Lain, FLCL anything Miyazaki (Spirited Away, Mononke, Castle in the sky) and about 40 other really good series that I don't have the time to list.

Kind of a closed perseption of anime, rent some movies get your hands on some fansubs.

Hmmm, My favorite series... I loved Eva and FLCL, Crest of the Stars, and anything by Miyazaki (movie= Castle in the Sky, Manga= Nausicaa)

Australian Guy, all of those choices are Anime, they were made in Japan for a Japanese audience (well it depends what Megaman series you are talking about, there is a newer Rockman series out now but I haven't heard anything about it)

How you could do a "Best Anime" poll, and NOT include Cowboy Bebop or Trigun, I just don't understand.

I agree with Kryten and Nurdbot. Trigun and Cowboy Bebop are the best and unlike their fellow Anime or Manga or whatever you want to call it, are actually watchable without feeling that "Didn't I see this last week on DBZ/Inuyasha/Lupin (lupin has an excuse: it's old)/Kikaider" feeling. I used to like Inuyasha until I discovered it's Pokemon with slightly older characters that don't collect seizure-causing creatures. Watch Inuyasha a while and you realize that despite it's hype, it's pretty cliched.

Hellsing and Cowboy Bebop are the coolest animes in my opinion. FLCL is just fun to watch, and I need to get that DVD. DBZ is too overwatched, I wish it would step down the pedestal as the no. 1 "beginner's anime". Ranma 1/2 or Trigun would nicely fill that spot.

Everyone says they like Trigun, and I'll give you that it's pretty good, but not all too realistic.  I definately like Bebop over it, definately. I've never seen NG Evangelion, but a lot of people say that's better than Bebop too, maybe CN will get it.  And Kigayder is stupid...  That's all I have to say...  I'm gonna go now...  I mean now......

I just recently saw "Spirited Away" three days ago, and I've watched it three time sover since then. Simply amazing, perfect mix of animation, voice casting, and musical orchestration. It's now my #1 favorite animated movie, displacing my long-held favorite of "Transformers: The Movie."  smile

I forgot to mention Hellsing and Lodoss aaahhh well. Anyway NibblerJr I was just sayingthat all this poll will prove is that people prefer anime that is not on the list. Which is hardly a sound reason for a poll.
Don't take it personal I'm saying ya know.

I picked up the first couple of DVDs on special at GameStop, and thought it was pretty good as well.  I've been collecting the CLAMP manga of this title for a while, so I already knew it was something special.  Remains to be seen if the anime picks up on all the subtext of the printed version, but so far its looking to be one of the better examples of its genre.

In the beginning the Universe was created.  This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

On Chobits: It was pretty good at first...then after episode 9 got so-so, and by the 15th episode it turned into an all-out girlie soap opera. Check it out for yourself, but I didn't feel like watching it twice.

No one has mentioned Naruto, it's really worth watching. The manga's also good too, since the series and manga both follow the story very closely. It's a bit long, though, because it's projected to last over 50 episodes. No. 34 is currently out right now.

In all fairness, Pokemon was amazingly popular in Japan as well.  Yes, its a kids show, obviously, but the only thing that defines 'anime' is 'animation produced in Japan'.
