One piece

One Punch Man

Vagabond

Toriko

Shamo

1. Dragonball Z

I believe this is going to be number 1 for plenty of people. DBZ influenced many popular animes of today such as Naruto and Bleach. Oh and Vegeta:P

2. Naruto

3. Digimon

Not an anime exactly but It was a fantastic part of my childhood:) I will never forget that theme song and Agumon and the DigiDestined.

Are there any anime that feature the same level of character evolution as DBZ? Because that's what makes that anime so great imo.

#10 Posted by -ParaNormaN- (833 posts) -

I haven't watched much but:

  • Angel Beats
  • Clannad
  • Kanon
  • Elfen Lied
  • Daughters of Rin

I've only watched the 2 movies and haven't seen the main series yet but, Eden of the East is pretty awesome too.

Only seen a few episodes of this so far, but definitely an interesting concept. While watching the first episode I was thinking 'damn, ain't that a b!tch'

Even Attack on Titan? Hard to believe since your username and avatar are from that anime.

My top 5:

  • Death Note
  • Attack on Titan
  • Gintama
  • Hellsing Ultimate
  • Code Geass

Great...I've watched most of them except One Piece (it's daunting to start now when the show is up to like 650 eps) and FMA.

One Piece is really long but it's worth it.

#16 Posted by Korvus (3886 posts) -

@thecruzan: I might give it a try but I'm afraid it might be too silly for my taste. 80% serious and 20% silly I can deal with, but not the opposite.

#17 Posted by thecruzan (94 posts) -

@korvus: It is 80% serious and 20% opposite. The first arcs aren't as serious but once you get farther into the anime, a lot of shit goes down.

#18 Posted by Korvus (3886 posts) -

@thecruzan: Thanks. I'll give it a go when I have the time to push a good bunch of episodes in a row to get myself into it otherwise it'll end up like Fairy Tale...the silly aspect of it and watching it one ep a week put me off it before the show could kick in properly.

#19 Posted by turtlethetaffer (16788 posts) -

I don't think I've watched enough of it to have a top five but I've watcheda few and my favorites are Gungrave, Higurashi: When They Cry and Deadman Wonderland (although the latter is infuriatingly not finished).

#23 Posted by Yoshi9000 (396 posts) -

5. Ergo Proxy-Very interesting anime, but gets too convoluted near the end. Episode 16 is amazing though, perfect episode.

4. Halo Legends

3. Samurai Champloo

2. Welcome to the NHK

1. Fullmetal alchemist 2003-Brotherhood was great, but still, the emotion and realism captured in the 2003 was amazing to me. The alchemy felt more like a science, rather than a super human power in the 2003 anime, with the constant integration of equivalent exchange, which didnt exist much throughout brotherhood. I understand brotherhood is the 'better' anime, but I think people underrate the 2003 anime just because it doesnt follow the manga.

1. Gurren Lagann - (Don't believe in yourself. Believe in me! Believe in the Kamina who believes in you!)

I haven't watched anime in about five years, but I've seen every episode of Dragon Ball Z and around 350 episodes of One Piece, and they were both reaaaaally good. Naruto is also respectable. DBZ has always been my favorite though.

#37 Edited by Motokid6 (5703 posts) -

I can't stand One Piece. I've tried numerous times to get hooked, but it's just the art style that kills it for me. It's just so.. quere. Even for for Anime... Not my cup of tea.

In no particular order:

Full Metal Alchemist (both the original and Brotherhood)

Cowboy Bebop

Ghost in the Shell

Attack on Titan ( I'd heard a lot about this anime and by the fourth episode I was blown away. Very much deserving of praise)

Sword Art Online

Kekkaishi (can't believe no one else has mentioned this superb anime yet)

DBZ ( I don't really consider this anime mostly because of it's mainstream popularity. Great animated series that could use some 2 hour long OVA's like the Evangelion ones)
