My sister said she watched this on NICK.

SailorMoon... Please come back.. To finish your story.. You show us true love and justice... And this time take Anime by strorm and show whose Boss!

I'm sorry this is the most childish attempt to make anime and is better at selling toys/dolls than it could ever be a quality series. But if its what you dig then do it, no disrespect intended. - aries0179

It's fine

Kakashi is my favorite

I've tried to get into Naruto several times and its just too much to try and keep up with, but I've got to agree that Kakashi is the best character in the show. - aries0179

Naruto is better than Dragon ball Z. I mean who wants to watch a whole bunch of grown men screaming and squatinglike their taking a dump (when they power up they usually kind of squat down and yell very loud, like you would do if you had a bad case of diarea). The only thing missing is the toilet. But no offense, I don't hate it, it just isn't my favourite. It is in my top tens no doubt. It's in second. - Mray100

Swap this with fairy tail on the perverted anime list and we got a good list for both! #N->FT if u agree

7 Tenchi Muyo
8 Space Dandy

Space Dandy is a great show! It's sort of a like a mix between a Cartoon Network show and an Adult Swim show.

The first was broadcast for 167 episodes on Yomiuri TV in Japan from October 16, 2000 until September 13, 2004. The second series, called Inuyasha: The Final Act, began airing more.

I just love everthing about Inuyasha! It shows true love and I really think this is trie anime! When I was only 5 years old I remember watching inuyasha. I don't know how I understood inuyasha and even liked when I didn't know what it was about but I just did. I do not regreat watching this show but I think it was a miracle that started watching inuyasha. Whenever my mom passed cartoon network and inuyasha was on I would yell until she went back to inuyasha. I really love kagome. KAGOME is the best character I ever knew in my life! She has this perfect personality, is super nice, and is so hilarous! I just love her and when she tells Inuyasha to SIT WHICH IS A PERFECT Example of how she is so FUNny. Inuyasha FOREVER!

What more can I say besides it being the greatest anime ever created!
I still remember watching new episodes every Saturday night and excited to see what happends next
Great characters, an amazing story, and just an anime that's almost for everyone
I've been a fan since I was about 9 and I always will be; it will always be my all time favorite anime show for life!

I don't 100% understand this, but the animation is so orgasmic. - MoldySock

This is one whacked out show, and I tried to watch it but it's a little extreme for me personally... But I'm psyched that it's actually on for anyone that really enjoys that type of anime. The style and artwork are cool though. - aries0179

It's too goofy

Its more than best

This isn't my favourite show,but how is it only in 7th place?

21 Durarara!!

I feel like this show is so underrated, it was the best anime I have ever watched, but on most top ten lists like this it's either at the very bottom, or near the bottom. I mean the plot was just so epic, and ere characters were the most awesome I nave ever seen! I have not watched this anime you are totally missing out on one of the best animes ever.

People should watch this because it's good and if you do we'll see a season 2.

People don't get the slow pace.
