I recently began watching Shikabane Hime and Hetalia (as well as several other anime available to me thanks to Funimation Channel~), but I was wondering if there were any other good anime out there that I might be interested in.
So I'd like to ask...
What's the best anime you have ever seen? As long as it's interesting, and has decent art quality (I don't really like watching anime drawn in the style of some of it's manga variations. The most common culprit of this is shoujou manga for all ages.

Which means, please, for the love of all that is anime, do NOT tell me to watch Sailor Moon or something like it....

Why no Sailor Moon? :D
Anyways since you did not specify the genre it might be difficult to suggest some Anime...
But since this is the thread about our best then I'll say Tsubasa Chronicle.
It has probably everything you would WANT (so no ecchi here) from anime.

I'm really not looking for any specific genre of anime. As for why no Sailor Moon, I recently decided to try and rewatch it (it was one of my favorites as a kid) and realized...it sucks. Bad.
And, coincidentally, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle is one of my favorite anime. Besides Pokemon and Hayao Miyazaki, it's also what I have the most merchendise of, in the form of a Mokona hat, a shoulder bag, and a giant scroll on my wall XD


@Scuki
I love K-ON and Lucky Star, and I'd like to watch DragonBall, but there are just way too many episodes. I'll stick to the abridged on that, thanks lol

@ShinyDunsparce
I've heard of Gurren Lagann but I don't know what it's about. Mind expanding a bit? :)
Also, ATLA is one of my all-time favorite shows! I'm so excited for the new mini-series, Legend of Korra. I can't wait!

And, maybe it'll help a bit if I mention my favorite genres...
I like fantasy, comedy (love love LOVE comedy!), horror, slice of life, school life, things to that nature. Ecchi is fine, as long as it's just that. Ecchi. Like, Chobits, School Days, B Gata H Kei, and Nana ecchi. Like, implied, or softcore. No hentai plz.

My top five anime as of now are:

Fate/stay night - It's so mysterious, like the plot unravels so slowly it keeps you on edge each episode.

Durarara!! - It's... I can't really describe it. It's just... So good. dat izaya orihara

To Aru Majutsu no Index - It's got a nice plot going for it. It's not all that special though. It's got a huge moe factor, and I have my "SQUEAL ADORABLE" moments with it. And the fight scenes aren't bad either.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - It's like a shot of pure unfiltered GAR to the brain. How could you not love it?

Eden of the East - I can't really find words for this one either. It's one of the deepest, most emotionally charged plots I've gotten into so far. I'm really satisfied with it, from beginning to end.

Sure, G.L is about a society that lives under ground, a lot of the population of humans living there don't know of a world above and forbid going above for reasons unknown. That is, until a young boy and his "older brother," and their community are attacked by a "Gunmen," and journey above where they battle it out in a machine called: "Lagann." They are ultimately trying to take the world above back from the Gunmen and establish their society permanently.
There's also a 2nd season that is a flip side of the first season, where the humans are attacked from outer space, I think it's even better than the first season.

You can watch the entire series here:

I haven't got a massive library of anime I've watched. Although I'd have to say the best Anime I've watched so far is Soul Eater and Naruto [Shippuden]. I just found Soul Eater hilarious, with a bump of interested Characters, and don't get me started on how much depth Naruto as a whole series has.
There was nothing. Followed by everything. Swirling, burning specks of creation that circled life-giving suns. And then we reached to the light.

My favorite anime was Bleach...I wuved it and I so sad it ended. :'(

My second favorite anime is Inuyasha(fricken love it soso much!!), Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou, and Kimi Ni Todoke. Those are my all time favs, though i've only finished like 20 animes so far. I've just recently got into them last summer.
Also, do movies count? If so, Howl's Moving Castle is my favorite! It got me into Diana Wynne Jones(my favorite author) and now I read almost all her books!

Well, I know what my favorites are, but pushing those aside.. the one's that I've seen with the best execution at the beginning / end.. there's actually two that come to mind first.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, and Steins Gate.

Both started as decent series, and then sort of sky-rocketed once they picked up towards the end of the plots, into something that I just sort of set there staring at. They were both awesomely done, though.

Also, Madoka Magica gets some credit, because sooo many mindfreaks and twists.


I have some favorite series that I really enjoy, but in general they weren't necessarily on the list of best handled anime.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya's first season was ridiculously well executed, as were Tengan Toppa Gurren Lagann, and the Read or Die OVA. Clannad is up there, but it was stretching it at times, a bit more than the first three series, which did push the limits themselves.

In order of what I found to be my most Favourite anime, I have ever seen; it would go like this:
1) Angel Beats!
2) Full metal alchemist (and Brotherhood)
3) Ouran High school host club
4) Junjou Romantica
5) Itazura na kiss
6) Sekai ichi Hatsukoi
7) Kuromuksuji
8) Gosick
9) The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
10) Nichijou

out of the so many ones I've watched in the last 3 to 4 years

These are ones I've enjoyed and found that I could watch over and over again, but also ones that had some really epic storyline and art work etc.

Angel beats, FMA and Ouran especially are ones that I re-watch scenes or episodes of on a daily basis and not get bored of.

Oh, I thought I commented this. My faves are;

Revolutionary Girl Utena - Loved everything from start to finish, so many "wtf am I watching moments".
One Piece - Best adventure/shounen I've ever seen and ever will see.
Gintama - Comedy gold with and amazing cast, brilliant OST and some cool fights.
Aria/Haibane Renmei - Tranquil slice of life at it's best.
Card Captor Sakura - Best mahou shoujo I've seen by a long way

Other series like Beck, Monster, Tokyo Magnitude, Clannad, Lain and Koi Kaze were also awesomesauce.

Though I am a Narutard :D, I'd probably go with Claymore. I'm mad that there are only 26 eps but they changed it up so different than the manga. Fairy tail is also coming up fast! Yu Yu Hakusho is a classic and Hunter X Hunter as well! umm....I'm still going to stick with Claymore.

For a while, my top 5 has been;

Castle in the Sky - Perfect execution from minute one. Miyazaki's greatest work.
Cowboy Bebop - A well written show that is enjoyable from the obscenely deep 3 main characters and still fun to watch for fun.
One Piece - A perfect execution of the Shonen fight-a-thon. Everything anyone could ever hope for in a story is somewhere in this story.
FLCL - Words cannot.
Gurren Lagann - Words can, but not very well. Still, a very smart show and EPIC BEYOND EPIC HNNGGGGHHH.

Honourable mentions go to Fullmetal Alchemist (2003) and The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya.

My favorite is Sgt. Frog, mainly cuz... It's like the only one I watch haha, I'm not that much into 9 (so you're probably wondering why I'm posting here haha :P) But you should give it a try, although apparently what I've read online it's a hit or miss for people, so you may not like. But as you know, I like it as it just puts me in a good mood. Lots of funny moments, some sad moments. The dub and sub apparently are almost different shows, as while the main plot points are essentially the same, the script changes are different to reference American Pop Culture and Japanese Pop Culture. And please support! It may get canceled if sales aren't good enough, and season 4 must come for the dub! (my favorite episodes are on it...). So you all should check it out!

Revolutionary Girl Utena, ftw. *points to avi*
Getting a tattoo of spinning roses and the last line of the theme song. When I have money. Which, is never. :P

Fullmetal Alchemist
I've only seen Brotherhood, but that was spiffaroo. I'm currently *ahem*downloading*ahem* the original to get the full effect.

Sekai itchi hatsuoki
I know I've probably spelled that wrong....meh. Anyway, good series if you're into shonen-ai and the like. Makes you kinda mad when it ends, though. :3

Another
If you like some brutal in your anime, go for this. It's kind of slow for the first 3 episodes, but it pickes up real quick.

Excel Saga
Pure, stupid, 4th wall breaking fun.

Theres a few more I want to list, but, I dont like making huge posts. :P

My favorite anime has always been and forever will be Inuyasha. So that in my opinion is the best anime I'v been. Also because the Final Act was nicely put together and was very very good. (In my opinion.) XD

I'm surprised that Mawaru Penguindrum hasn't been mentioned, it's an artistic masterpiece. Steins;Gate also deserves a mention.

But honestly best anime would personally go to either Towards the Terra or Tokyo Magnitude 8.0

EDIT: Revolutionary Girl Utena deserves a mention too
