81 Parasyte The Maxim Parasyte The Maxim

One of my top 10 favorite anime, and I have watched over 100 anime in my life. This anime is REALLY worth it, so give it a try.

I still need to watch it but judging by the intro music its gonna be one of my favorite anime's ever

This is my 2nd favorite anime and the theme song is just the best. The story is unique and exciting and it should really be more popular

This is just down right awesome, everything about it is really well made and there is nothing like it. It's got really anything you could want.

82 Fate/Stay Night Fate/Stay Night Fate/stay night is a Japanese visual novel and anime series by Type-Moon. There are three story lines in the visual novel: Fate, Unlimited Blade Works, and Heaven's Feel. A 24-episode anime series based on the Fate route and a film based on the Unlimited Blade Works route were made by Studio Deen. A more.

I think that all Fate universe is fantastic for the plot, the drawings, the sound and the animation in generally. Fate was born as a visual novel and Fate/ stay night is only one of the scenarios possible in the story. I love especially this anime for his concern to the ancient myths and hereos and in particular to the translation of them in modern figure that fight in an epic battle to obtain the Holy Grail. I love very much Saber and Shirou's love story that describe very well the relations, often very difficult, between characters.

Perhaps the most amazing and inspirational anime ever!

Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works was just a beautiful anime for me. Whether the routes be Fate, Unlimited Blade Works, or Heaven's Feel, all of them are part of the anime adaptations based on them that feature incredible animation and art, deep and complex themes, epic fights, wonderful music, and an engaging story that truly defines the interactive storytelling that makes Fate/Stay Night what it is. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Oh I love it I just started though but I still love it so much!

No THIS IS NOT GOOD. Should not be on a list of the best anything.

This one was good

84 Devil May Cry

Although I have not played the game but I love the anime it's amazing Dante is very very cute although he is very innocent he has a sharp persanality that every girl likes although he acts tough he has a soft side and the little girl patty that he had to take care off was also very cute and his girlfriend was even hotter

Dante is the man you wish you could be. He's cool, he looks awesome, he sounds awesome, he fights awesome and girls like him, no? Anyway a very enjoyable anime adaption!

I love this series, it was way too short! Dante is awesome and the storyline well done. I don't play the game, but I love the dark theme and the sexy characters.

The anime is amazing, I haven't played the game yet but I just bought it and I'm really looking forward to playing it.

85 Princess Mononoke

Simply amazing... Can watch it over and over and still become totally mesmerized by the quality of animation, character depth, and engrossing story.

Princess Mononoke... Hayao Miyazaki Masterpiece :)
His Spirited Away and Howls Moving Castle are nothing compared to Princess Mononoke. Plus the great message it conveys!
Also that you discover new things even if you are watching it for the 16th time!

It's a really cool anime whats it doing down herewith Akitasha Mononoke and Moro its exciting

Best anime movie of all time bar none. I have watched this movie more times than any anime movie or series it's simply amazing.

86 The World God Only Knows The World God Only Knows The World God Only Knows, abbreviated as Kaminomi, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Tamiki Wakaki. It has been adapted into three anime series produced by Manglobe.

This is definitely the best manga I've read so far... And I've read plenty! Storyline, plot, characters, everything is awesome and the main character is absolutely awesome! Love this!

This is the best work in my opinion. The protagonist is unique and unpredictable and at least he is being decisive. The story is creative.

Difinitely one of the Best Anime I've watched, recommend it to people who are game addicts/nerds, lonely. Haha Don't belittle this anime, I'm sure when someone watch this they'll love it (after 2-4 episodes maybe) haha :) love it

It should be first I love this anime and I love shiori so much that I want to marry her

87 Pokemon Origins

An anime based on the original Red/Blue/Green Pokemon games, what else can I say? These four episodes are far better than what Pokemon currently is now.

Watch it in English subtitles, as the English Dub is quite dumb.

Probably the best Pokemon series! Talks about Red's story! Almost like when you played the game and it retells the story for you in an awesome way!

I really liked this one. It's more mature than the main series and very loyal to the original story of the first games.

This needs to take the place of the Pokemon anime right now - shawnmccaul22

88 Digimon Digimon “Digimon” is a term commonly used to sum up several Japanese anime series based on the Bandai virtual pet brand “Digimon” (Dejimon). As of 2017, there are 7 series: “Digimon Adventure” (1999), “Digimon 02” (a.k.a. “Digimon Adventure 02”) (2000), “Digimon Tamers” (2001), “Digimon more.

One of the very first Animes that I started to watch was Digimon Adventure. It was totally different from any other Anime that I've seen before, it had a great story, lovely characters, good enemies and of course, the Digimons!

I can say that Digimon was the true beginning that encouraged me to see more pure Anime. I even think that, over the years, every time that I remember this Anime makes me love it more, even I feel that I was part of that great Adventure because it is stored in my heart. It's impossible for me to forget Digimon, specially Adventure, I grew up with this and it's very difficult to find something as big as Digimon!

Forever one of the best series of all time!

64? Why!? It's so amazing! It makes people cry.. So emotional it changed my life... I will always value it..
Digimon= amazing childhood

Love Digimon, I don't see why it didn't get bigger. The plot in the first seasons was extraordinary good, and there were so much humor into the series. No copy of Pokemon at all, the plot is as differnt as it can be. Kids that travel to another dimension and hook up with Digital Monsters, and saves the Digital world, and planet earth. Great!

89 The Legend of Korra The Legend of Korra The Legend of Korra is an American animated television series that aired on the Nickelodeon television network from 2012 to 2014. It was created by Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino as a sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender, which aired from 2005 to 2008.

Legend of Korra is absolutely spectacular! I love how the main character is approximately of the same age as the people watching it, as we who used to watch The Last Airbender have matured in age the show has matured with us. I also love that the Avatar is a girl and there is romance in there show, it really reaches out to the female anime watchers.

This anime (or cartoon) was the series after Avatar: The Last Airbender. They made this one more funny but still action packed and really cool. This anime made America look good.

This is a great anime, I'm excited of what's to become of this. The first season was gripping and moving. It's full of love and action, you learn everything with kora, and I feel that, that's important in order to fall in love with the character and route with her all the way.

I'm glad they made a second to avatar.

The nest season to the last airbender

90 Baka and Test

Why isn't this number 1? This anime is awesome!

Why is this lower than Boku no Pico. This anime is life.

This anime is like the funniest thing of all time I watched it twice and laughed at every joke. BETTER THAN DRAGONBALL Naruto AND... ONE PIECE!

Should be much higher

91 Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~

Definitely one of the best anime's I've ever seen. Not the best but probably in the top 10. However, given the way most people voted on this list (younger aimed audiences) I'm surprised it even got on here.

Amazing plot, music, gunfights - after I finished watching it I was thinking about it for the next 3 months...

This is an amazingly awesome! Anime it has badass music and good gunfight. This is definitely worth watching
But this is just my opinnion

92 Beyblade 2000

One of the best anime tournament series and great for kids

Its an awesome show! The new one is a complete waste when compared to the original one. It has an interesting story and col characters. It improve's the Beyblades after every episode. Its an awesome show! The new one is not so interesting.

It must be in top ranking. Its very good anime. I loved it.

Its about tops that fight eachother...

93 Hajime No Ippo New Challanger

Boxing is awesome thanks to Ippo! I all was remember to try my best in sports thanks to this anime and Kuroko no basket.

95 Haikyuu!! Haikyuu!!

I feel like this anime is incredibly underrated. I watched a few episodes and simply got addicted. I don't even like sports but this anime seriously inspired me and got me into liking sports. The characters each have different and beautiful personalities. This anime is filled with comedy and gets you laughing even when you had a bad day. The fandom is probably one of the best fandoms I've ever been in and that's saying a lot considering I've been in a lot of fandoms. The fandom is so sweet and everyone gets along and ship the same couples and like the same memes and it's actually pretty chill. I recommend this anime to pretty much anyone, whether you like sports or not.

What kind of ranking is this!? 97! It's BLASPHEMOUS! Haikyuu (all of its seasons) is the best sports anime out there. It doesn't have ridiculous super powers, nor does it prolong its matches. The series is pretty spot on in terms or realism (except the weird duo of course). I guess its still underrated and less appreciated because its not your usual fantasy action genre and its about volleyball. Trust me, this show is a must watch and once you watch it, every other sports anime will look extremely pale in comparison (coming from an anime enthusiast who loves the sports genre).

How is this 119, it's my 2nd favorite anime EVER. The characters are extremely likable and well developed. This anime even gave me a genuine passion for team sports. I never watch sports anime but this was a masterpiece, the soundtrack animation, was perfect. Even if you like sports or not I recommend this one

96 Claymore Claymore

I love this anime, just too bad they messed up the storyline and wouldn't make another season. It's my Favourite anime and I have to watch it all over again sometimes.

Great anime that captures your attention straight from the get go. All but the last two episodes have a terrific story and great action. I highly recommend it.

Claymore is very good. Cause it is different from anything else, there is a lot of action, the writing is great and sometimes it can be really creepy.

Love this anime series (claymore) best anime ever just as (attack on Titan) and (berserk)

97 Skip Beat! Skip Beat!

Skip Beat is just hilarious! I'd say this should be the top shoujo anime of all time! The great part about it is that it shows great character development and have plenty of meaningful plots of each character's situations. It all fits right in and makes perfect chemistry for romance and comedy :D

I also love this Anime. It's still haunting up my mind until now. How I wish to watch the next season of this as soon as possible. To its author please grant my wish. I'll wait for it. Laugh out loud :-D

Mhh this is my favorite anime. The manga gets even better. I don't think anything can top this. It's Shoujo at it's peak. If the manga will be ever made into a complete anime it will be popular. Maybe it's not cutest drawing style ever, it's actually rather plain most of the time. But the story itself is just really well thought through (which is one of most important parts of manga). It's hilarious, it's serious, it's meaningful, it's cute. Nakamura-sensei gave her heart to make this I'm sure. I have to read it again and again to understand it all. But I'm talking about the manga here... So IF this ever will be made for the small screen, it will climb up on this list FOR SURE. Can't always be Shounen up there, right girls?

Amazing. I hope there will be a season 2. I don't like reading manga that's why I hope there could be one

98 Black Lagoon Black Lagoon

Beauthifull story line with amazing charactars, if this anime had more episodes then it would definitely be in the top 10 EAST.

Dark storyline, really well done...I loved it. This is anime at its best, not kiddie cartoons, but true anime! I wouldn't call it beautiful(? ) but it is what anime should be, not cheesy silly crap but animation at its best, dark, graphic and really good.

Easily one of my top 10 if not top 5. Really good character development and the action scenes are great. I really love the plot as it was a twist from other animes I have seen being from the action category.

Not for kids at all. Not for adults with weak mental fortitude either. Be ready for more F bombs than all of WWII. Be prepared to witness awful crimes. A most excellent criminal underworld show.

99 Shugo Chara Shugo Chara

I really Shugo Chara! It is the best anime I ever watch beside Detective Conan and Skip Beat. I re-watch it like 10 times! I'm a big fan of Shugo Chara! He he)

Best anime I've seen so far. Why did they put Shugo Chara here? There's a wonderful twist of fantasy, comedy, and romance. I've watched all series of them, like Shugo Chara!, Shugo Chara Doki!, and Shugo Chara Party! I also read the encore and fanfictions.

(Spoiler Alert! )
It's about a girl named Hinamori Amu in Seiyo Academy. She is admired because of her cool & spicy personality, but she is actually cute and shy on the inside. One morning, she woke up and found three eggs. The eggs hatched and give born to guardian characters (Shugo Chara in Japanese). Ran the sporty one, Miki the artistic one, and Su the fluffy and love to cook one. Amu enters the guardians, like some sort of student council but the unique things are all the guardians must have guardian characters. The guardians were sorted by cards names, like king, queen, ace, jack, and joker. Amu met many good friends and fall in love. The guardians purpose is to get the embryo (because of the king's dream). They also ...more

I love a lot of anime but seeing one of my favorites, Shugo Chara, at number 94, is just sad. I can't believe how low this amazing anime production is on the list. It not only is an amazing anime, but it actually teaches a lesson: Be Yourself. The Guardian Characters in this series symbolize your DREAM. They represent the you you want to be.

It's about a girl named Amu who wants people to see her for who she really is and her Guardian Charas; Ran, Miki, and SU, symbolize her wanting to be more athletic and outgoing, more artistic, and better at cooking. She helps other kids try to save their dreams.

It's such a cute series! Try watching it!

Shugo Chara is about a girl named Amu who can't show her true feelings

100 Accel World Accel World

I recommend this to everyone who is remotely interested in anime. Written by the same people who wrote Sword Art Online. I personally think this should be higher on the list.

This is personally one of the top anime I have gotten the chance to watch. It should be up a lot higher on this list.

Accel World, what to say is brilliant funny and very interesting from the start I hope for seasons 2

Starts out a Little retarded But gets amazing
