First of all get your facts strait no one is forcing anyone to watch anything this list is solely for anime fans who haven't had the chance to see other anime series or for people who are open to new things not for ignorant jerks who constantly hate on anime. - egnomac

All you Anime haters completely misunderstood the list. This list was for Anime fans to look at so they know which Anime is recommended to them before they die. It wasn't for comments like "you are forcing us to watch them". Egnomac is not forcing you to do anything. He is just recommending the Animes to Anime FANS before they die. - EpicJake

FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood is better than wasting time

Best anime ever
