    I saw the topic about the Essentials topic on the front page, and I thought, hey, why don't we have one for Anime too? Might just stop the 9000+ threads in here about which Anime to watch (of which I'm afraid I was guilty of once [​IMG] )

    Huge thanks to Shakraka for his help!


    The usual rules of other Essential topics go here as well: [​IMG]

    - You can add more anime in future posts but don't mention an anime that you've recommended previously.
    - Also add more anime by adding posts, not editing old ones.
    - -1 votes COUNT towards the total amount.
    However, it is acceptable if you provide both.

    Also, please use English names when available instead of Japanese.

    Also, would a mod please sticky this? [​IMG]

    If you notice any mistakes, please let me know (as there are bound to be some here X_X )

    Oh, and lastly, watch
    Cromartie High in dubs. Here's a hilarious clip from the show.


    Rosario + Vampire = Pure fanservice shit.
    Blassreitier = No one cares about this, and it's made by GONZO.
    Claymore = Manga is far superior.

    don't think anyone asked for ur opinion regarding my recommendations but fine..
    ok i admit Rosario is purely fanservice (especially second season, there's like a panty shot every 10 seconds lol), but the manga is pretty decent
    blassreitier? i found it decent, i don't care that U don't care about this lol
    claymore anime was decent till the end, but once again this is an anime essentials thread.

    EDIT: btw LOL @ video xD

    -Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (Best Anime in recent history)
    -Yu Yu Hakusho (Great Classic)
    -CLANNAD (great drama and comedy)
    -Full Metal Panic (nothing needs to be said)
    -Full Metal Panic Fumoffu (same)
    -Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid (same)
    -Rurouni Kenshin (All time fav)
    -Ah! My Goddess (classic)
    -Kamen no Maid Guy (great classic)
    -Kanokon (funny +fanservice)
    -Gundam X (will always be my favorite gundam)
    -Full Metal Alchemist (everyone knows FMA)
    -Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu (so weird it is great)
    -Death Note (best drama/thriller)
    -Neon Genesis Evangelion (restarted the anime industry in 1995)
    -Elfin Lied (has blood and boobs, to say the least)
    -Love Hina (my first fansubbed anime)
    -Onegai Sensei (my second fansubbed anime)
    -Bounen no Xamed (pretty cool)
    -Shaman King (classic)
    -Bleach (minus the fillers)
    -Shippuuden (minus the fillers)
    -Tsubasa CHronicle (Would be even better if they had made a season 3)
    -xxxHolic (great, I like Clamp)
    -xxxHolic Kei (same)
    -Soul Eater (pretty cool)
    -Detroit Metal City (funny as hell to me)
    -Read or Die (love the 3ep OVA)

    +more I can't think of right now.
    As you can see, I'm not to picky.
    I love just about all anime, shonen or shojou.
    If you have seen every anime on this list,
    then get those torrents going.
    Each one will not make you regret watching them.
