Top 20 Favorite Anime

20. FLCL15866_flcl

Oh Gainax, how I miss your old self. Well actually, maybe not. Regardless, FLCL is about as experimental as you can get from anime. Pulls no punches and reminds us why anime is unique to any other art form.

19. Seto no Hanayomedafwqaouhie

Hysterical in its wacky craziness. That might sound like FLCL except Seto no Hanayome at least has a coherent plot. A plot that is quite charming to showcase how amazing all of these characters are.

18. Fushigi no Umi no Nadianadia_et_le_secret_de_l_eau_bleue_107868

Despite the really terrible beach arc near the middle/2nd half, everything around makes up for most of it. It’s my favorite “old-school anime” thus far.

17. Mushishi1183846-mushishi-background

Tranquility and sublime beauty are two terms that can describe Mushishi.

16. The World God Only KnowsHarem

The ultimate harem anime, with all the charm and hilarity that comes with making an extraordinary one.

15. To Love Ru Darkness wallpapers.ws-25915

Normally I include all of the seasons of a series as my favorite but with the case of To Love Ru, Darkness is the superior one.

14. Cowboy Bebop maxresdefault-21

A non-surprising one on the list, but it’s considered one of the best for a good reason.

13. Sora no Otoshimono sora-no-otoshimono-wallpaper-b-2560_1600

It has one of the most beautiful artwork in an ecchi show I’ve ever seen. That and it pulls no punches in being incredibly depraved with its humor and lewdness.

12. Kiss x SiskXN5fBk

It feels so wrong, yet so right. The series realizes this and is honest with what it wants to be, a raunchy, fun sex-crazed comedy that no one except 0.07% of the world’s population will love.

11. Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Nekohentai_ouji_002

One of the most underrated anime shows ever. In fact, it depresses me that this show never got another season that it deserves.

10. Denpa Onna to Seishun Otokoerio-Makoto-Maekawa-Ryuuko-denpa-onna-to-seishun-otoko-21248241-2560-1600

Definitely the oddest show that you would see in a Top 10 list. Not just because of how nobody remembers it anymore but because it drowns itself in the quirkiest of moe comedies. To me, this is where Shaft is at its best when doing these types of anime.

9. Princess TutuPrincess.Tutu.full.32682

This is my favorite “Magical Girl” anime in that it doesn’t really feel like one. It has an atmosphere that you hardly see in the genre, or any other anime genre for that matter.

8. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone ComplexGITS_SAC

This has some of the greatest written arcs in any anime show. As someone who is a cyberpunk fanatic, this one really gets me a sci-fi boner whenever I start thinking about it.

7. Sayonara Zetsubou SenseiMoJO4oj

Just like Denpa Onna, it proves how Shaft is masterful at creating great slice of life by adding new strange elements to it to make it fresh. The only difference is how macabre some of the humor is, which is why I think it’s better.

6. Black Lagoonblack-lagoon-3

As far as action anime goes, this one takes the cake in terms of high fidelity action with some great memorable characters that make this a re-watchable gem.

5. Kill La KillKZ5yo

Trigger has become a new favorite studio for me, and this being their first full anime series effort proves that they have a lot going for them in the future.

4. Panty and Stocking1212471-panty-and-stocking-hdq-image

Full-on anarchy in pure anime form. Almost like if an anime studio was making a show for Adult Swim.

3. Spice and Wolf7611_spice_and_wolf_holo

Never has an “intelligent” anime could be this invigorating and cute.

2. Usagi Dropusagi_drop-06-rin-daikichi-excited-happy-planting-tree

The cutest anime ever; not in a moe sense, but in a human one.

Anime of All Time: Serial Experiments Lainserial-experiments-lain-over-coat-wallpaper

As I’ve mentioned that I’m a huge cyberpunk fanatic, this one is the granddaddy of all of them. Lain is God and the late 90s computation aesthetic speaks to me in ways that are indescribable to put to words.
