Greatest Anime of All Time


The Contenders: Page 6

101 07-Ghost

07 Ghost is the best anime ever. It's super cool and is very gorgeous. I think it should be number 1 So vote for 07 Ghost. Go! Go! 07 Ghost

Amazing anime! The plot involves a lot of action and is also well-rounded in general. It's too bad it ended so early in the plot.

This anime is about a amnesiac kid named Teito Klein who has a special power, and is at some military place until he tries to kill a leader there that murdered his father. He then escapes and is taken in at a church, where there are myths about the mysterious 7 ghosts, who are supposedly shinigami that were banished to Earth.

I love this anime!

102 Eden of the East

Only watched a few episodes but was hooked instantly! Who would not wonder why a guy would wake up naked outside the white house?!

It's super great! I love this show for its plot, characters, and Christian theme.

There's a reason why they made episodes AND a movie. Why? Because it's really good. - Persons

The most important thing is it has oasis song'falling down' as opening

103 Gungrave

This anime has a well developed storyline that is action packed. After you have watched 3 or so episodes you'd be hooked

GunGrave has one of the best storylines, ever. the animation is gorgeous and the sequences are to die for. I couldn't say this it's my favorite, but it's absolutely in my top 5

Amazing anime, one of the best stories developed

Should be higher

104 Akame Ga Kill Akame Ga Kill

I truly hate to see kill la kill above this show in the ranking this show delivers the perfect impact of giving you an attachment to the protagonists and then just as quickly rips it away there is not many anime out there That kill off main characters but this anime does it in the most perfect ways I have seen

Let me say this: This anime is one among the top ten that I would advise watching. It is still strange that it is not even in top 50. One of the heart touching animes - So touching that I cried a lot. I suggest watching it.

This anime is one of my favorite from the action genres. Its contains "the feels" and gets you crying on how unfair it gets, and then you get mad at stuff happens, then you want to keep on watching it. - Bryanlai2000

We all know what happens to Chelsea! That might be the most brutal death in this show!

105 Spice and Wolf Spice and Wolf Spice and Wolf is a Japanese light novel series written by Isuna Hasekura, with illustrations by Jū Ayakura.

Easily the best character developing story I've ever seen. Won't spoil anything. But give it a try, two-three episodes in and it surely belong to your top-10 list.

Spice and Wolf is the first to make me change my wallpaper from the default w7 one, is also the first to make me download the novels.
Much love for the series, has a unique feel and revolves around emotions... I can't write... You must watch it to be able to understand it; the only bad thing is that it only has 2 seasons and that made me cry at the end.

The best romance anime I have ever seen so far. But this show is too under-rated among the anime community.

Here are the reasons why it doesn't deserve 106th place:
1. I could sing its ending song for hours
2. It's not sad, disturbing or boring. It's really funny, romantic and gives off a 1800s vibe

106 Sankarea

It's a cool anime that involves this boy from a shrine trying to create a reanimation potion to save his cat,but a girl he met also drank the potion turned into a zombie which is so cool!

107 High School DxD High School DxD

Great series based on demons, fallen angels and normal angels. The show is based on issei and goes for 12 episodes. It has a light novel which is a great read but they will be releasing after the 6's ova. It is not for the younger aged and is great for teenagers _(mainly boys)

Why is this so low? I mean how are all the new Yu-Gu-Oh's in front of this. It should be at least top 20. Best anime to watch if you like harem and nudity!

One of the best anime I have ever watched.

This is one of my favorite animes definitely has to be in the top 20. This is the best harem show ever.

108 Shakugan no Shana

Really good show, it shows us some decent action and triangle love, it also shows us the determination that every character has to achieve its goal and never give up no matter what.

It's so awesome... Shana, as she has proven her worth once more after challenging her own lover for the sake of wanting to walk on the same, but improved, path as him..

Shana is the first anime I ever watched, and I have never found anything that came close to this storyline or emotional depth. A must see for everyone who loves a good anime series.

It's a wonderful anime that in my opinion is absolutely brilliant except for the third season

Anyone this anime is awesome it is about 12 high school students trapped in a game of kill or be killed but you can't be caught or you die AWESOME It's A MUST SEE it is a bit of action and drama it's a good combination

Oh my god this should defiantly be in the top 100 at least. This anime is so suspenseful, so sad, so anger inducing, and just overall great. Be warned, your favourite character will most likely die - piercetheyum

I think that the amount of hope and despair in this game should at least make it go to the top 5.

The whole Danganronpa series is amazing. Not only the anime, but also the games. Be sure to check them too :D. Oh right, PLAY THE GAME BEFORE WATCHING THE ANIME SINCE IT HAS SPOILERS FROM THE GAME.

110 Nisekoi Nisekoi

It is the best romantic, comedy anime I have ever watched definitely should be in the top 20

This is my favorite anime of all times! It is really funny and well...AWESOME. You should read the manga too because you can never get enough awesome stuff. - Bryanlai2000

Best romantic comedy anime I have ever watched...This should be at least in top 50

This is why I love Tsunderes. Chitoge and Taiga Aisaka are the best. A must watch. - LaST_LiGHT

111 One-Punch Man

It is new, but one of the greatest anime ever, with many of the greatest animators coming together to make it.

One-Punch Man is exactly what anime needs. It is an awesome parody of many of the cookie-cutter animes we see today. It is funny without trying to be funny. Most important of all is that One-Punch Man is INTELLIGENT and UNIQUE. - guizzy

I feel like this was exactly what Anime needed right now, its funny, well written, and above all else, THE MOST BAD ASS FIGHT SCENES EVER

This anime was way better that sword art online. Something's wrong with y'all because if you think sword art online should go at like number 3 then you are a total newbie anime. The humor in this is brilliant.

112 Free! Iwatobi Swim Club

What makes Free stand out from other sports animes - such as Haikyuu! (And don't get me wrong - I absolutely ADORE Haikyuu! ) is that as well as being a sports anime, it's an anime about friendship, about coming of age, and fears and being unsure of what you want to do in the future. All the characters have so much to them; so many layers, and so many arcs - it's about pressure, being different and therefore seeming like a loner, bonds and friendships that will remain even over time and distance. It's about memories and it's about life. Though it's classified as a swimming anime, swimming is merely the thing that sets the basis to it - like some sports animes', Free goes far beyond just the sports, and it does that in one of the most graceful and fantastic, and just beautiful ways that I've seen so far.

The best part about free! Is that its not just focused on swimming, its more that swimming is what is used to carry the main plot. it starts out very funny, k and it does stay lighthearted, but it has amazing moments and it talks about friendship and it will make you cry. free! Eternal summer is even better, it starts to get a bit darker, but when it gets dark, its all very realistic reaons that most of us can relate to and can understand. I honestly think this is one of the best anime I've ever seen.

This anime is about a group of boys in high school that decide to form a swim team after discovering that the place that they used to swim at was getting torn down.

Sports anime are cool ^^

113 Ghost in the Shell Ghost in the Shell

Oh come on... No comments yet?
You've got serious issues people.. If you haven't watched GITS yet!
It's kick-ass for all the cyberpunk lovers out there.
Not just that but the anime also takes the cake in action sequence..
Highly recommended!

This should definitely be AT LEAST in the top 10. No other Anime compares to the sheer amount of thought put into this. I guess there are not many Psychological lovers out there. I haven't seen every Anime on this list but out of the ones I have seen, this has a more intricate story than those and it almost requires you to think in order to understand things (which is probably another reason why it's lower on the list. A lot of Anime fans like the more simple things they don't have to strain their brain cells over. )

This is the finest canon of anime that I've ever seen. It's not only an introspective look at a future society but it also dovetails into socio-ethics of politics, the thin line between democracy and dictatorship, questions of what defines humanity, among other things. Overall one of the most thoughtfully written, amazingly directed, and interesting anime's of all time.

This should be in top 10.

114 Yuri on Ice!!! Yuri on Ice!!! Yuri!!! on Ice is a sports anime television series about figure skating. The anime was produced by MAPPA, directed by Sayo Yamamoto and written by Mitsurō Kubo.

This anime is probably one of the best animes that I have watched. The story line is very inspiring, yet it is also thrilling. The animation give off a feeling of smooth, elegant, and graceful motions, which is the epitome of figure skating. Fianlly, the relationships that are shown in the anime are very deep and they show off how many different relationships there are and how important they are through sports. All in all, I think that this is an anime that is definitely worth watching.

This is definitely the best show on the face of the earth! It is so moving that I don't cry... my heart cries. I believe that the arts move people greatly, and incorporating such emotional magnitude through Yuri on Ice! the story gains so much more than mainstream anime would. The character development and relationship between Yuri and Victor kills me. It is such a heart wrenching story and I urge strongly that people take the time to truly enjoy it... I hope there is a season 2

Favorite anime of 2016, the bond Yuri and Victor have is so meaningful and yet it still features the excitement of a typical sports anime plus its also hilarious! This anime is something special and already has a huge fanbase I love it.

Yes yes all the yes

115 Your Lie in April Your Lie in April Your Lie in April, known in Japan as Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso or just simply Kimiuso, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Naoshi Arakawa.

I agree, this is one of the best animes I have ever watched! I can't believe it's so low however I can understand that many anime fans haven't watched this due to the anime not having any "action" or magic. It's definitely a little different from some of the other animes I've seen but it's filled with so much emotion and beauty. Definitely deserves top 30 I mean it's ranked behind a cartoon!

This was a masterpiece, enough said. I cried enough to use up 10 tissue boxes. Everything was simply beautiful, I'm usually a fan of action and adventure anime, but this is an exception. The characters were well thought out and developed, and the soundtrack was amazing. I rate it a 10/10 please watch this!

This anime is so beautiful. The end left me shocked, sad + made me cry

So low. #2 for me
Does not deserve it.Believe me I have watched nearly every above anime but this was the one the touched my soul one the best for me
The only anime that made me cry and I cherished every second of it.And the ending it really crushed me. Still one of the best anime ( not #1 because Death note is just legendary)

116 K-On! K-On!

This is the best anime ever! You should watch it. This is about your friends, your classmates, your teacher, and everyone!

It's so funny, but sometimes you'll cry because it is so touchy!

How this isn't no. 1 is dumbfounding! By far the best Anime ever. It's funny, it's sad, it'll make you laugh, cry and jump with joy.

A really cutesy and fluffy anime that both men and women will enjoy, especially those who play musical instruments (such as myself). I didn't expect it to be very high in the charts since it's not action, which anime-fans tend to enjoy more these days, but I thought it'd at least be in the top 50, since it is really well thought through. The balance of comedy and slice of life is amazing. There isn't any romance in K-On!, but I love the friendship all the girls have. The ending of season 2 did make me cry, too it's really easy to empathise with the characters. Why is this at 102?!

Great work!My youth!

117 Beyblade: Metal Fusion

Come on, 80? It's deserves a much better place with awesome characters like Ryuga and Kyouya also Ginga who is like the main character of every anime. Even people says that it story line sucked, please man watch the Season 3 of it. It had awesome story and the first two season was a progress to the main storyline. The most saddening thing was Ryuga dead (Man why? ). If you talk about popularity, It's was a whole lot when it was airing than the original series.
Bottom line : It's an anime that deserves a much higher place.

Beyblade Burst looks like crap compared to this. Metal Saga was amazing. I hope that after Burst, they go back to the metal saga. This is amazing. It made Beyblade popular.

It's awesome Beyblade v force and g revolution suck the beys are plastic and metal beys are way better and the show is so funny and it is so cool it should be number one

Wow! Awesome anime ever seen.u must watch.and ryuga is best and cold but still I like him.episode 34 is amazing

118 Rave Master

Way cool, the plots really interesting and it makes you want more. It has comedy, action and even a bit of romance, though what happens to Haru (main protaganist) is so sad.

It's cool I love that dog thing (Plue) - xxxgoodgurlxxx

Best anime ever it makes you want it more! It funny action romance great friendship... And even weird animals and powers you would never think of! I have finish it and now reading manga too it has scenes that will make you cry and laugh... It is great and any kind of people would love it! I wished the anime continued... (Cries) well but the manga I think its completed? (Yeah I was right juz go to some website and look it was completed or not)
It original run is 1999-2005 (manga wikipedia it haha) but anime is 2001-2002 also it has a lot of great fighthing scenes too and when you watch it you would want the romance even more! (Not going too say the name or else would ruin it) plus it also has games for it ( if you really like it like me but I don't have the game... ) juz wikipedia if need more information
WELL please RATE IT AND MAKE IT TO THE TOP 10 please please please please... I REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVE IT!

Love the manga and show its really awesome

120 Deadman Wonderland Deadman Wonderland

One of the best anime ever made with massive amounts of blood and also the greatest sequel of events. Some of the nicest characters and powers you can ever imagine, I have a particular interest for bloody anime but this one was really nice.

It's pretty gorey and a lot of blood is spilled, but the storyline is pretty awesome and what's more, there's a great twist. WE NEED SEASON 2!

It's the kind of work you search for as an Otaku, or even a semi regular watcher of anime. You want the best anime, and it's animes like this that you find it in. Season 2, bring it on, I personally can't wait.

Where is season two?! Waaah - emeraldfennekin
