Best Anime Ever

2 "Ballad Of The Fallen Angels" Episode 5 - Cowboy Bebop

Best episode of one of my favorite animes.

3 "Overcast" Episode 7 - Death Note

The best episode you can ever ask an anime to make. Although we all know that Light is somehow going to survive, we did not know whether Naomi Misora would. For all we know, she could have survived and given information to the police and the plot could have been awesome from there on, too. Plus, it showed that Light would indeed kill anyone, if they threaten him, which is another way of character development. And, the ending, the ending. As Naomi's face becomes dark and lifeless as she heads on to her inevitable suicide, to the stairs of heaven. Just a godlike episode.

So glad to see this at number 5. When I watched Death Note for the first time all those years ago this was the hook episode for not just the series but anime as a whole.

4 "Thank You Merry! The Sea of Seperation in the Snow" Episode 312 - One Piece

MERRY ;( A talking boat successfully made almost the whole fandom cried...

The Enies Lobby Arc was simply amazing and this episode was just the a perfect ending

Tell me, have you ever cried over a ship
If you did, then it must be over our dear Merry

5 "Gaara vs Rock Lee" Episode 48 - Naruto
6 "Death Of The Undying" Episode 19 - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Damn I was overjoyed when Lust died! Seriously what a brutal killer she was. And when she killed Maes, I was so sad, I spoiled three boxes of tissue. All hale ROY MUSTANG!

Many many many episodes of this Anime is awesome but this one is the starting point of the change in the characters and developpment.

8 "Confrontation" episode 2 - Death Note

14 "Graduation" Episode 13 - Angel Beats!
15 "Smile: Assault On Stohess Part 1" Episode 23 - Attack on Titan
16 "The Outside of Madness" Episode 15 - Re:Zero

Hands down one of the greatest episodes of anime I've ever seen. The amount of emotions this episode alone evokes is enough to carry all 25 episodes of this anime alone. From beginning to end it is a true Masterpiece.

The best episode ever... - peyman_eun

Must be at 1# - peyman_eun

17 "Another Super Saiyan?" Episode 120 - Dragon Ball Z

Single greatest episode in anime history

Turn you into a pile of tears

21 "Chinmoku: Silence" Episode 25 - Death Note

This episode alone made my cry. Best episode I have ever seen.

Why is this not on top? I can't find anything of this level.
