 Your Top 10 Anime Recommendations! UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS!


Originally this thread was to define your top 10 and to save us the trouble of threads like "What is the best comedy/romance/etc?"

I have however, noticed no one is posting in this, so if you are too lazy to follow guidelines just post your favorites here. You will not be punished for it. If you wish to take the extra time to actually follow the original instructions that would be nice, but I'm not making it a requirement anymore.

We haven't had a lot of responses to this, and I'm guessing that it's too hard. It would be nice to atleast include the genre or target audience of the anime you add - Caddberry

This thread was designed to replace this thread:
in order to compile a more descriptive listing of member anime favorites. This thread will mostly be used as a reference for fellow members to find new anime and to display a member's particular anime tastes.

#. Anime - genre - year - brief remark.

  • Legend:

    • #. = the rank of the anime in your top 10 list.
    • Anime = underlined title of the anime
    • genre = the two to three prominent genre seen in the anime
    • year = the year this anime was first released.
    • brief remark = One or two sentences of your personal thoughts/opinions.


  1. Noir - Action/Drama - 2000 - I fun series for all ages ^_o
  2. Trigun - Action/Comedy/Drama - 1998 - Vash rocks. He is god!

  1. This thread is only intended to list anime. There is to be no additional discussion posts. Any post used only to discuss may be immediately deleted by a mod w/o any notification or warning. However, some short remarks following your listing will be allowed.
  2. Please use the {list=1}{*}{/list} tags to encompass your anime listing. Replace those tag bracket symbols {} with []. This will make lists much more readable. (quote my initial fav list post to see a good example of what I mean.)
  3. Only list your top 10 favorite anime. At any time you may edit your list as your tastes change.
  4. The "genre" and "year" of your anime should reflect what the AnimeNfo database uses. However, identifying genre is a bit harder. At first I thought standardizing the genre for each anime would be best, but that would be just too hard when using a forum. Instead, just use these guidelines when choosing genre:
    • Your list should initially be based off of what AnimeNfo's anime database lists to be the anime's genre
    • If AnimeNfo lists an anime to have more than three genre then narrow that list to the three most prominent genre in the anime
    • You may replace any of those genre if you think there is a better genre to describe that anime.
    • Any genre changes shouldn't be based off of your personal opinion, but from what strong attributes the anime displays
    • List genre alphabetically.
    • Remember, only use two to three genre to catagorize an anime.
    • A list of genre and a description of them will be posted below. These are the only genre allowed. This list will include all of AnimeNfo's choices (on the DB) as well as a few others.
  5. If you disagree or have found a fault with how someone has listed a particular anime, please PM that member or inform a mod about it.
  6. Also, if you've any questions, suggestions, comments, or genre alterations you'd like considered for this anime listing thread then please PM me (Animal4890) or another mod.

Genre List:

Thrilling action-packed stories for example high-speed car chases, fierce battles, people running around a lot, and gun-shooting.

Daring tales of people having adventures, journeying to far off and exotic places.

This genre tends to make you laugh. However absurd and insider jokes will sometimes just confuse you.

Anime with emotional and dramatic story, conveys a wide range of emotion.

Ecchi anime contains very light sexual themes, such as sexual comedy, transvestites, lecherous grandparents, the occasional bare breast, but never any actual sex. Lots of nosebleeds and potty humor.

Story about family or just perfect for the entire family.

Many anime creators draw ideas from the folklore and mythology of many different cultures, using everything from unicorns to umbrella monsters, from the great cosmic sea turtle to Santa Claus.

Historical Settings:
A look back at stories and events that just might have taken place during the Edo period of Japan, the French Revolution, or other times past. But probably not with total historical accuracy.

Creepy tales of ghosts, demons, vengeful ex-girlfriends and other frightening creatures.

Deviant, sometimes to the point of absurdity.

Evil sorcerers bent on world conquest, fairies from another world seeking the magic gems to save humanity, flying unicorns, enchanted swords, there's magic on the air.

Martial Arts:
Anime that falls into this category has a lot of bare hand fightings, from normal kicking and punching to awesome finishing moves.

Parental discretion is advised. Contains strong sexual content. Can possibly include yuri or yaoi content (lesbian/gay).

From fifty-foot robots to form-fitting battlesuits with high heels, anime is probably best known in the western world for mecha.

From the hardcore heavy metal band to the sweetly tinkling melody of a fairy song, music can often play an integral role in anime. Even a few of the stories about singing idols contain music.

Cops, private detectives, and troubleshooters searching for the clues to solve the great puzzles. Lots of intrigue and conspiracy.

As a well-established field, anime has earned its share of parody. From titles which parody the common themes to titles which use well-known anime characters from other titles in humorous guest cameos.

Romantic stories drawn from the close and sometimes intimate relationships amongst two, three, or more characters.

Story revolves around school life. From kindergarden to college kids, with all the adventures, it's a wonder they ever have time for classes.

SoL (Slice of Life):
A story representing a small portion of one person's life. Normally, this person is the only POV during the show.

From the whimsical adventures of a boy and his robot to the dramatic plight of a race of cyborg slaves, science fiction plays a common role in anime.

Depicts intimate female/female relationships that do not include content that is beyond ecchi. Unlike its root word, this genre is not necessarily aimed at a specific audience.

Depicts intimate male/male relationships that do not include content that is beyond ecchi. Unlike its root word, this genre is not necessarily aimed at a specific audience.

This genre conveys a wide range of sports from traditional martial arts like judo to western style sports like baseball or even fictional sports.

Super Power:
Be it an ancient greek Hercules, a cybernetic muscle-man, or a fourteen year-old girl in a mini-skirted sailor suit. As long as they have super power, they're in the show.

I don't know if anyone will read this anymore, but I decided to re-arrange my terribly outdated list. In the end, I made separate lists for movies and series.

Anime series:
  1. Monster - Drama/Mystery - 2004 - A mature thriller with a huge story that developes slowly; also an amazingly faithful adaptation of the famous manga.
  2. Neon Genesis Evangelion - Action/Drama/Mecha - 1995 - A challenging story with heavy psychological, philosophical and religious themes, plus wonderfully flawed characters.
  3. Ima, Sokoni Iru Boku (aka Now and Then, Here and There) - Adventure/Drama/Sci-Fi - 1999 - A touching tale of survival in the horrors and cruelty of war.
  4. Ghost in the Shell - Stand Alone Complex - Action/Mystery/Sci-Fi - The best detective series I have ever seen.
  5. Noir - Action/Drama/Mystery - 2001 - Has just so much style that the lack of substance and the flaws in execution can be completely ignored.
  6. Cowboy Bebob - Action/Sci-Fi - 1998 - Style over substance, but has an incredible groove and excellent music.
  7. X TV - Action/Drama/Magic - 2001 - A good adaptation of the best CLAMP-manga, vastly superior to the movie.
  8. Last EXILE - Adventure/Fantasy/Sci-Fi - 2003 - A great adventure with a wonderful steampunk-setting.
  9. Berserk - Action/Fantasy - 1997 - Even though not nearly as great as the manga, has still some of the best overall storylines in all of anime.
  10. Azumanga Daioh - Comedy/Slice-of-Life - 2002 - A hilariously weird schoolgirl comedy with truly memorable characters.

Anime movies:
  1. Ghost in the Shell 2 - Innocence - Action/Drama/Sci-Fi - 2004 - A brilliant philosophical masterpiece, despite all its pretentiousness.
  2. End of Evangelion - Action/Drama/Mecha - 1997 - The mind-shattering finale for the ground-breaking series.
  3. Princess Mononoke - Action/Adventure/Fantasy - 1997 - The best Studio Ghibli movie, both exciting and touching.
  4. Jin-Roh, The Wolf Brigade - Drama/Romance - 2000 - A tragic movie with some of the best and most realistic animation ever.
  5. Spirited Away - Family/Fantasy/Magic - 2001 - Simply one of the most beautiful and memorable movies ever made.
  6. Wings of Honneamise (aka Royal Space Force) - Action/Drama/Sci-Fi - 1987 - "The first true anime art-movie" and a unique masterpiece.
  7. Patlabor 1 - Mobile Police - Action/Drama/Mecha - 1989 - A brutally intelligent movie.
  8. Ghost in the Shell - Action/Drama/Sci-Fi - 1995 - A classic.
  9. Tokyo Godfathers - Comedy/Drama - 2003 - Satoshi Kon's best movie.
  10. Grave of the Fireflies - Drama/Historical/Slice-of-Life - 1998 - The saddest and most tragic of all Ghibli movies.

1. Kodomo no Omocha - Comedy/Romance/School Kids - 1996 - I was quite addicted to this anime series, it expressed basically every emotion you can think of, plus it's just one crazy anime series.
1. Fruits Basket - Drama/Comedy/Romance - 2001 - A literally laugh out loud series (to me anyways), all the characters are really lovable, Fruits Basket was addicting too!
2. Hunter x Hunter - Adventure/Action/Comedy - 1999 - Every aspect of this anime is great. It's all unique, the characters, the names of the characters, the clothes they wear, and the whole "Zen" thing. I love it!
3. Full Moon wo Sagashite - Romance/Drama/Fantasy - 2002 - Most touching, dramatic, and heartwarming series I've seen so far. The animation and music is beautiful! Pure shoujo.
4. Full Metal Alchemist - Science Fiction/Adventure/Drama - 2003/2004 - slow at the start, but really captured my full interest later on. The plot is unbelievably fluid, very well thought out. Could be liked by all ages and genders.
5. Princess Tutu - Music/Romance/Fantasy - 2002 - Different from other shoujo series that I've seen, it has a more ominous theme than expected, I really liked it though
6. Hikaru no Go - Sports/Drama/Comedy - 2001 - I don't know how they did it. But they made a boardgame so intruiging. I think it's all about the characters though, very captivating.
7. Elfen Lied - Horror/Science Fiction/Drama - 2004 - This can't really be summed to one genre, it's unique on its own. Seriously, you can't couple this with any other series, it's perfectly unique. How the story flowed, the characters, and the action was all candy.
8. Prince of Tennis - Parody/Sports/School Kids - 2001 - You can always rely on Japan to make an anime series based on anything, this time it's Tennis, but not like it's not all focused on it, character development is what I watch it for.
9. Spiral - Parody/School Kids/Mystery - 2002 - I really liked all the characters in Spiral, the ending was quite unsatisfying but I don't regret watching it.
10. Rizelmine I - Ecchi/Comedy/Romance - 2002 - Never failed to make me laugh, but notice how it's only part I, part II was too ecchi for me I was quite disappointed, but it's still good for some laughs.

- These are not my favourites, and after #5 it's in no particular order really
- Will be updated
- Assume that every Romance genre has suspense/drama
- There are some favourites that are not liseted, I wouldn't recommend it that's all
- I don't have a strong opinion on recommendations, but I do for non-recommendations (there should be a topic on this perhaps)

Anime Top 10

1. Rurouni Kenshin: Reminiscence – Historical Settings/Action/Drama – 1999 – The best samurai anime ever created.

2. Cowboy Bebop – Science Fiction/Action/Drama – 1998 – About bounty hunters of the future.

3. Vision of Esca Flowne – Mecha/Action/Drama – 1996 – Contains the best music of all anime.

4. GTO – Schoolkids/Comedy/Ecch – 2000 – About a teacher who was once the most famous leader of motorcycle gangs.

5. Trigun – Comedy/Action/Science Fiction – 1998 – One of the best gun fighting anime series (probably the best).

6. Noir – Drama/Action/Music – 2001 – Watch this if your tired of having all the men saving the "weak" women. Lets just say you wouldn’t want to be in this anime if you’re a guy (you’d be dead).

7. Tenchi Muyo – Comedy/Drama/Science Fiction – Don't get jealous...

8. Love Hina – Comedy/Martial Arts/Ecchi – 2001/2002 – Very violent (jk) and funny. Every once and a while you like seeing people getting kicked out two story buildings…

9. Hellsing – Horror/Action – 2001 – Great anime (don’t give a vampire a gun). Don’t watch the last 6 or 5 episodes.

10. Rurouni Kenshin TV – Action/Adventure/Comedy – Fun to watch with a great story. Ending could have been better.

Will be uptaded.

My Top 10 Anime:

1. Rose of Versailles (1979): Rose of Versailles is shoujo in its finest form. Some of the best anime I've seen were created in the mid to late 90's. And a few of my favorites were created just two or three years ago. Rose of Versailles is an anomaly in that it's one of my favorite anime, and yet it is twenty-five years old. But it's still drawn better than some more recent anime, and the story itself sure as hell blows at least half of the trash on the top 100 out of the water. Rose of Versailles is an avant-garde classic in every sense of the word.

2. Rurouni Kenshin: Reminiscence (1999): As close to unadulterated perfection anime will ever achieve.

3. Berserk (1997): Beginning each episode with the question: "Is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or Law?" Berserk is also about fate or the existence of chance. Anime such as Escaflowne, X, and even Full Moon wo Sagashite, have asked this same question and gave pretty much the same answer: If fate does in fact exist, then it's not written in blood or set in stone. It can be changed. Berserk, however, gives two answers for the same question.

4. Grave of the Fireflies (1988): One of the greatest anti-war movies ever made.

5. The Vision of Escaflowne (1996):

6. Great Teacher Onizuka (2000): A rare anime in which just about every episode is awesome, and can still be great despite a pretty shitty ending.

7. Barefoot Gen (1983): In the end, this classic is not about despair, but hope in the midst of it. Here, cruelty came in the form of fire and not from the hands of human beings. If you want to cry, watch Grave of the Fireflies. If you want to SMILE and cry, watch Barefoot Gen.

8. Fruits Basket (2001):

9. Brother, Dear Brother (1991):

10. Fullmetal Alchemist (2003):

  2. Cowboy Bebop - Action/Comedy/Science-Fiction - 1998 - Beautiful animation, and upbeat action make this a great one.

  5. Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien - Drama/Romance/Schoolkids - 2003 - A great and moving drama; one that will lead you to tears.
  6. Inuyasha - Action/Adventure/Fantasy - 2000 - One of those rather long anime series, but nonetheless a very good one.
  7. Furi Kuri - Comedy/Fantasy/Science-Fiction - 2000 - Completely insane and irrational; that's why I love it.
  8. Vision of Escaflowne - Adventure/Mecha/Romance - 1996 - It's got it all bundled up into one series.
  9. Rurouni Kenshin - Action/Adventure/Comedy - 1996 - Just love it; plenty of historical references that make you say, "Hey, I know this."
  10. Trigun - Action/Comedy/Science-Fiction - 1998 - Real silly at times, but still a real good one.

I tried not to include any movies, specials, and OVAs simply because each series has tons of them. I tried to keep it strictly to an entire series.
It takes an idiot to do cool things; that's why it's cool.

I don't like orders either:

Hunter X Hunter -(action/adventure) by far one of the best of its kind out there. Funny and extremely dark at times. Definitly worth the watch, all 4 parts of it. The dark animation in the TV series and OVA is completely on the mark.(is it just me or do the 2nd and 3rd OVA remind me of the transition .hack//SIGN did into .hack//DUSK with the animation style. The animation is made quite lighter and the characters look a lot cuter.)

Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien - (drama/romance) A tear-jerking masterpiece. Falls short of nothing but brilliance. DON'T WATCH IF YOU DON'T WANT TO CRY!(I warn you). And don't be swayed by the first 2 episodes. They are only the introduction to the true greatness of the anime.

Pita Ten - (comedy,magic, schoolkids) Very cutsy but you just gotta love Miisha. Very funny and often hilarious. It is just a warm touchy feeling anime that you will wish could last forever.

Kanon - (romance, drama, magic, schoolkids) Another tear-jerker. This anime mixes in magical and superficial themes into a mix that just turns out perfect. The art style is also very cutesy(beware the giant eyes!!!)

DNAngel - (action, adventure, romance) One of those animes that fall into the category of "just about for everyone". Anyone can really find something to like about this anime. The character designs are great and the animation is superb, the story is interesting and every character is loveable. And lets not forget how cool Dark is ^_^

Naruto - (action, adventure, comedy) A funny anime that just can kill you of laughter if it isn't dazzling you with the action. Naruto can sure kick some butt, and the ninja action in it never fails to amaze.

One Piece - (comedy, adventure) Another funny adventure anime. So many fun events and parts to the anime you just can't help but love it. Luffy is by far one of the coolest and funniest(if not completely stupid) anime characters I have ever seen.

Scrapped Princess - (action, adventure, drama) This anime is one that I was immediatly hooked to. This anime just leaves u with a soft feeling once u finish and really inspects the value of an individual.

Excel Saga - (comedy) This is the craziest anime I have ever seen. You have every Japanese-related parody imaginable in it, not to mention a main character that talks about a mile a minute. Pure, unadultrated fun.

Saikano - (drama, romance, action, mecha) Very sad anime that is just hard to watch if your an easy crier. It helps examine the horrors of war without interfering with the relationship going on with the 2 main characters. The ending just killed me though. Definitly worth a watch for anyone.

Ruroni Kenshin - Reminiscence - (drama, action) Wanna know why I love Kenshin so much? This is the answer. This is THE definitive anime of its genre. This anime is just awesome. I loved every single bit of it. The action, the drama, the story and its style are all definitive and remarkable. I think any and all anime lovers should at least check this out.

1. Naruto - Action/Fantasy/Martial Arts - '02 - A little silly but great characters and story, fantastic fight scenes.

2. Cowboy Bebop - Action/Sci Fi - '98 - Just an all-around great anime.

3. Hunter x Hunter - Action/Adventure/Fantasy - '99 - Awesome story, but I can't help thinking of Gon as Naruto Embarassed

4. Berserk - Action/Fantasy/Horror - '97 - This anime kicks a**, although the end drove me crazy until i found out about the manga.

5. Trigun - Action/Comedy/Sci Fi - '98 - Fun story, i like how it starts out silly but gets real serious by the end.

6. Inuyasha - Adventure/Fantasy - '00 - Great characters, and although it's really long i don't think it gets boring... actually i think it gets better once you get into the 80's and above.

7. Samurai Deeper Kyo - Action/Fantasy/Historical Settings - '02 - Really interesting story and characters, Kyo rocks Twisted Evil

8. Neon Genesis Evangelion - Action/Mecha/Schoolkids - '95 - This anime defies description (at lest a short one) but if you haven't seen it, you should. Warning - you won't get a lot of stuff until you watch it a second time. Wink

9. Fullmetal Alchemist - Action/Adventure/Fantasy - '03 - Awesome animation, really fun story and great characters. Btw ep 29 has the most intense scene i've ever watched in an anime.

10. FLCL - Action/Comedy/Mecha - '00 - This may possibly be the wierdest anime i've ever watched...

7. Azumanga Daioh. Comedy/Schoolkids (2001) - Just pure fun and never gets boring!
6. Paranoia Agent. Irrational/Slice of Life (2004) - Satoshi Kon makes the series humanity needed to see!
5. Onegai Twins. Comedy/Romance/Ecchi (2003) - Surpasses the original and Mina is so cool.

  1. Wolf's Rain - action, fantasy - 2003 - Beautiful setting and atmosphere. Interesting foundation.
  2. .hack//sign - action, science-fiction - 2002 - Somewhat slow-paced but intruiging storyline.
  3. Vision of Escaflowne -adventure, fantasy - 1996 - I love Hitomi.
  4. Hunter X Hunter - action, adventure, fantasy - 1999 - Ridiculously addictive, at least in the first arc. Killua = I heart.
  5. Naruto - 2002 - action, comedy, martial arts - Hello. It's a story about ninjas. How cool is that. And Kakashi has to be one of the coolest anime characters ever.
  6. Hikaru no Go - 2001 - fantasy, historical settings - Only in Japan.... I don't know how they make this storyline interesting. But they do. It's an explainable phenomenon.
  7. Spiral - 2002 - mystery - The storyline takes a nosedive somewhere in the middle and the ending is a joke, but I found it fun to watch just for seeing how they solved the puzzles.

Not 10 but that's all I could think of that I thought was actually worth recommending.

  1. Great Teacher Onizuka - Comedy/Drama/Schoolkids - 2000 - The tale of an eternal adolescent teaching real adolescents life lessons regardless of the consequences. In school, no less.
  2. Crest of the Stars(and sequels) - Science-Fiction/Drama/Adventure - 1999 - A thorougly immersive universe that is simply epic in scope, yet intensely personal with it's characters.
  3. Hajime no Ippo - Sports/Comedy - 2000 - The refinement of sports anime, and the quest of becoming the best, all encapsulated bone-crunching boxing spirit.
  4. Full Moon wo Sagashite - Drama/Music/Romance - 2002 - A magical girl anime with horribly repetitive music. Despite that, you'll fall in love with it.
  5. Hoshi no Koe - Science-Fiction/Romance/Mecha - 2002 - A short film detaling a tale of separation and loss, beautifully rendered.
  6. Urusei Yatsura Movie 2: Beautiful Dreamer - Mystery/Fantasy/Irrational - 1984 - My all-time favorite anime movie, it's not often they take a popular series and make a thought-provoking yet entertaining movie out of it.
  7. Neon Genesis Evangelion - Mecha/Science-Fiction/Drama - 1995 - After all these years anime newbies are still driving me to distraction trying to discuss Evangelion. Certainly more than a footnote in anime history. And lest you forget, there's some hot fightin' mecha action in it.
  8. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind - Fantasy/Adventure - 1984 - Because I would simply be remiss if I didn't have a Ghibli movie in here, and I think this is their greatest. And yet it doesn't have Family listed as one of it's genre, odd, don't you think?
  9. Furi Kuri - Irrational/Science-Fiction/Parody - 2000 - Maybe one day GAINAX will be saved from itself. Until then, we can remember greats like this.
  10. Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu! - Comedy/Schoolkids - 2003 - Because sometimes I like to laugh, and Guu is just too strange.

In no order... because that would way too hard to decide.

  1. Gundam Seed - Action/Mecha/Sci-Fi - 2002 - In my opinion, the best Gundam series ever.
  2. Shaman King - Action/Adventure/Fantasy - 2001 - A great anime to watch with nice character development.
  3. Chrno Crusade - Action/Romance/Comedy - 2003 - Hooking from start to end.
  4. Full Moon o Sagashite - Music/Fantasy/Drama - 2002 - Completely compelling! Once I got hooked, I finished this series within a week.
  5. Hikaru no Go - Fantasy/Historical Settings/Schoolkids - 2001 - If you thought an anime about a board game was boring -- Think again!
  6. Naruto - Action/Adventure/Martial Arts - 2002 - Those who lust for nonstop action and fighting would be somewhat satisfied with this series.
  7. Fruits Basket - Drama/Romance/Comedy - 2001 - Even if it there are parts hilarious enough for you to roll on the floor laughing, there are also some parts where you won't be able to survive without a tissue box by your side.
  8. Inuyasha - Action/Romance/Adventure - 2000 - A long series that's totally worth watching.
  9. GetBackers - Action/Comedy/Magic - 2002 - A hilarious anime from start to finish.
  10. D.N.Angel - Romance/Magic/Schoolkids - 2003 - Love can do strange things to you.... But first loves aren't always forever.

There's no number because I can't really say what my Top 10 is. I'm just putting stuff I like.

Hunter x Hunter - Action/Adventure/Fantasy - 1999 - One of my favourites. It starts out pretty slow but it gets better as time goes on. Has a brillliant cast of characters.

Naruto - Action/Fantasy/Martial Arts - 2002 - Awesome anime with cool fight scenes and generally a interesting story.

One Piece - Action/Adventure/Comedy - 1999 - A hilarious action packed anime with some of the coolest cast of characters ever. I actually got teary-eyed at some of the arcs regarding the past of some characters.

Prince of Tennis - Comedy/Sports - 2001 - An exciting tennis anime. The characters are hilarious, each having their own personality, way of talking and play style. They even make special chibi episodes where all the characters are super-deformed (pointless but amusing).

Fullmetal Alchemist - Action/Adventure/Comedy - 2003 - Great action, great character, great story. I just like the whole idea of this anime.

Gundam Seed - Action/Mecha/Science Fiction - 2002 - Just amazing.

Pita Ten - Comedy/Drama/Fantasy - 2002 - Ultimate cuteness.

Rurouni Kenshin - Action/Adventure/Historical Setting - 1996 - Pretty much a legend. Haha. The second half of this anime got a bit filler-ish but I actually liked it.

Trigun - Action/Comedy - 1998 - I don't remember too much about this now, but it was cool. Very cool.

Whistle! - Sports/Comedy - 2002 - Soccer anime. I quite like it.
