Avatar: The Last Airbender is set in an Asiatic-like world in which some people are able to manipulate the classical elements by use of psychokinetic variants of Chinese more.

This is not an anime, its an american cartoon that was inspired by anime. I'm pretty sure all the titles on here belong, so good job. But yeah this easily deserves to be number one. Korea was good too, but it only exists because of this show.

I never really watched this show as a kid. I honestly have no idea why I didn't because this show looks flat out amazing.

Not a fan of anime. Not an expert. But I always though its an anime.

One of the greatest television series of all time, period.

2 RWBY RWBY is an American 3D web series created by Monty Oum for Rooster Teeth. The show is set in the fictional world of Remnant, where young people train to become Huntsmen and Huntresses to protect their world from the creatures of Grimm.

An amazing series that is enjoyed by both anime and non anime fans

Love the animation interesting story line.

Best magical girl anime outside of Japan

7 The Boondocks The Boondocks is an American animated sitcom created by Aaron McGruder for Cartoon Network's late-night programming block, Adult Swim. It is based upon his comic strip of the same name. The series premiered on November 6, 2005.

This show is funny and the fight scenes are amazing too! Love the characters, the voice and everything. Only thing that disappoints is Season 4 as it just didn't feel the same with the series creator (Aaron Mcgruder) leaving the show by then. Season 1 to 3 were top gold 👌🏾

8 Star Wars: Clone Wars

The Chinese influence is easy to see

The animation is amazing, even when compared to other anime. The story is engaging, the characters are interesting, and some moments make you cry

The series follows the adventures of a boy named Finn (voiced by Jeremy Shada) and his best friend and adoptive brother Jake (voiced by John DiMaggio)—a dog with the magical power to change shape more.

Gravity Falls was inspired by anime?
