I used to hate animes .But some animes made me an anime lover .Animes like these will love everybody .Even if he is an anime hater .

The Top Ten

1 Death Note Death Note Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The show is centered around Light Yagami a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".

Death Note is definitely one of the best anime series of all time. I've watched anime since 1995 and seen it all. Every great anime series is unfortunately followed by a small group a haters.

All of these people do this because hating is in their nature. People who hate great things and complain about everything just to pick fights and start arguments.

Still the best Anime ever in history.

Death Note is different.It has limited-action.Which is not like 5 or 10 other anime. I didn't use to watch anime.But by death note I started to watch anime.because it's like most other English/American T.V. series (Sherlock,Luther,Hannibal etc).So those who can't watch anime but love mystery/thriller T.V. series they could simply give a try for it. - zxm
