Your Favorite 5 Anime of All Time

Postby Punstarr » Tue Dec 14, 2010 12:00 pm

What do people like in terms of anime? Old school stuff or new stuff?

My favorites are:

1. Ranma 1/2, a story about a high school boy who is cursed to transform into a red haired female version of himself whenever he is splashed with cold water, hot water changing him back into a boy. Add this to a fiance, Akane that wanted to be Ranma's fiance as much as Ranma wanted to be hers (ie, not at all), hilarious hijinks ensue. Oh, did I mention that Ranma and most of the supporting cast are martial artists? I haven't recommended this anime to anyone, guy or girl who didn't end up enjoying it. This anime was originally released in 1989 in the US. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranma_%C2%BD

2. Bubblegum Crisis (the original), is a far cry better than the more recent version. Nene was cuter, the fight scenes were better, the animation was better, and even though Priss was just as annoying, the original series was just all around a better anime imo. This anime was originally released in 1987 in the US. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bubblegum_Crisis

3. Record of Lodoss War. If you are a fan of the High Fantasy genre (like Dungeons and Dragons for example), you'll love this brilliant epic story about a party of adventurers led by Parn, the son of a famous knight of legend. This anime has some of the best animation I have ever seen done, period. I highly recommend this series. This anime was originally released in 1990 in the US. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Record_of_Lodoss_War

4. The Slayers, an anime centered around the adventures and hijinks of Lina Inverse, sorceress for hire and Gourry, travelling swordsman is a great one, with the perfect blend of adventure, comedy and action. This anime was originally released in 1989 in the US. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Slayers

5. Akira. What can I say about arguably the single most well-known anime movie in history? If you haven't seen it... see it. This anime was originally released in 1988 in the US. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akira_%28film%29

Hmmm I have trouble putting them in order but my top five would probably be

-Lucky Star. (Just started watching this becouse of my daughter and it is actually absurdly funny. Its so good that I plan to get the figma figures)

-Rorouni Kenshin (the anime I say got me into anime. Sure I watched stuff like voltron, astro boy, gigantor,speed racer and pokemon but this is the one that got me interisted in real anime)

-Princess Mononoke (the art was truly beautiful it was so amazing up until that point I've never seen anything like it. Stunning)

-Cowboy Bebop (if I was putting these in order cowboy bebop would be #1. I love this show to death the story telling the art the amazing fight scenes. For me nothing compares)

-Code Geass (amazing anime that really had a lot of very heavy world veiws.)

Honorable mentions
-Trigun
-Death Note
-Akira
-kikis delivery service
-spirited away
-Howls moving castle
-Detective conan

FLCL: The japanese title was Furi Kuri, and that gets translated to Fooly Cooly. Hence FLCL
