    I don't really think that Ghibli stuff should be in there since the bulk of all these (If not all?) are series' where as the Ghibli stuff are more over feature films.

    Also japanese animes.

    Surprised a few others haven't made that list. Unless they're in the top 20.

    The list is quite ridiculous so far.
    Why are they including both films and series?

    The list doesn't make any sense in the first place. Why are they comparing films to TV series?

    The list is only coming from someone's opinion, I'm surprised Naruto isn't in the Top 20 due to the countless games and cosplay costumes they have out there. Death Note should be higher than that =/ I know Spirited Away is on the top 10, I bet you!

    Glad to see Monster on there, I'm in the middle of that anime right now and loving it. I tend to delve through lists such as this and anime thread recommendations to find new anime, so I'm sure I'll check something out from this list that I haven't seen eventually.

    Why is Baccano! so low?
    Why is BECK so high?!

    This list is just... So wrong ;_;

    As for movies being on this list, I don't really see a problem... :/

    Hmm
    Heard of most of them.
    Have a few of them to watch.
    Seen none of them all the way through and do not feel bad about such a thing.

    Baccano! is worse than Naruto, Code Gayass, Bleach (Hur dur) and ClanAIDS?

    What the fuck. There is no other show with as classy music, superb settings, original characters, and plot than Baccano! Nothing comes close to it. Sure, the animation needed a bit of work at times, but this is too much.


    I can clearly see it now. Number 5 will be TTGL, number 4 will be ClanAIDS: after story, number 3 will be Haruhi, number 2 will be K-on!, and number one will be Raki Suta. Then, pretty much everyone on the internet besides those Elevens who have shitty taste in animu, will rage over how the top 4 is all made from KyoAni.
