122 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

123 Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal

I'm a sucker for anything with action and romance, it's got a darker and deeper more meaningful connection to things than most anime. Looking at all the work put into the detail alone to stress the significance of situations proves that it belongs near the top 10...

Best piece of anime work in my opinion. The detail that was put into the work as a whole including the art, storyline and character development was phenomenal.

Rorouni Kenshin ( Samurai X ) Best anime ever created and Trust & Betrayal shows why.

The best anime ever.. ! This is the anime closest to the real life.. not too much excess imagination, and I like the story very much.. ! It should be at the top ten!

124 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

125 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

Why is this so low on the list? It's a beautiful anime that's hilarious~

126 Nana

Nana is the best anime love story for me. The story is a little bit of complicated, tragic and heart warming at the same time.

I love the show Nana. It should have been in the top 30.

Why didn't you include this mater piece?

127 Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad

Wow unbelievable that this is so far that is complete bull... This is like the most coolest most satisfying animes ever and this is 129? And it's so original because its about a band that makes it in the usa. You people should be ashamed of yoursleves

I wish there will be the 2nd season because they haven't played the gig in uk

Awesome anime, a story about an oridinary school student becomming a mucisian. I consider this to be one of the best animes of all time. How this show develops the charecters is truly amazing. Not only is it a great drama anime it has great music as well, the songs really grow on you and after you have seen all the episodes you can't understand why they didn't make more episodes. So if you like a great drama anime with great rock music this is the anime for you, I reccomend everyonë watch it.

128 IS: Infinite Stratos

Good fights, very funny situations. Only 12 episodes, but well rounded plot. I wounder if there will be a second season?

There is a second season now and it's very enjoyable

129 Uta no Prince-sama

Full of vibrant colours to leave you addicted visually. A set of handsome characters with interesting and unique back-stories vying for the attention of a girl (since this show is based of a dating sim, the girl is virtually YOU) make for a light-hearted plot. Add in some mysterious magic and it being set at an academy for idols-to-be, and you have: Princes of Song (or Uta no Prince-sama).

My favourite anime of all time! Huge fan of the anime, characters and songs! I never get sick of the songs and the guys are also so handsome! I really love this anime! I can't wait for season 4! I love their voice actors too! Basically everything about this anime is perfect!

Hmm, this is pretty legit noting I'm a guy, the music is fantastic, I hope they would make an original English with those tune though

130 Great Teacher Onizuka

The funniest, most idotic teacher can really teach a class full of mean smarties to get rid of him. He is so stupid!

A teacher with a great passion in teaching, teaches life values more than the subject itself and it is worth watching it. full of suspense, drama, action, comedy, romance. - ronluna

Onizuka, a person who was a motorcycle gangster has only 1 dream, to become a teacher. Only problem is that most of his student try every method in the book to fire him because they hate the teachers. The story is about how he makes them love school and show that school can be fun too. Lots of fun, Heart touching moments, also some pervertness but it is controlled. The best part is that it is realistic. I really luvd it... It is too under rated.

This anime is truly masterful in its presentation and execution. It is funny, exciting, heartwarming, and inspirational. As a teacher myself, I rewatch it every year to two to regain perspective on whether I am truly reaching my own students.

131 Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni

The anime is very confusing at first, but later it gets explained and it makes you think of it in a whole new way. When you watch it you will cry, laugh and feel every emotion of the crew. The original subbed version is the best, the dubbed ruins most of the suspense and emotion that the subbed portrays. Very good anime! Recommend 100%!

My absolute Favorite, I think it is the best Anime ever. The Story is something I had never expierenced in other Anime. It is an Anime that you can't forget after seeing it, because of the setting and yu should watch all episodes to get the story

Okay, I know the Visual Novel and Manga are creepier, but HOLY ! THIS ANIME HAD SOME PRETTY SCARY AND DISTURBING PARTS! Sorry, but it's true. Anyway, the Story, while confusing, is just fantastic, easily in my top 5 (possibly 3) stories of all time! The Characters are interesting, well-developed and amazing! The Sound and Music just enhance the atmosphere, and the Opening and Ending Credits are beautiful and creepy! The only thing that wasn't up to scratch was the animation, it's not bad by any means but it could have been much more, although the overall art is quite nice. I easily recommend this to any true fans of Anime and/or Manga, especially Psychological, Mystery and/or Horror fans!

It's the PERFECT mixture of horror, comedy (Kira & rei) psychological and the opening for it is AMAZING! The manga and visual novel are amazing! I LOVE IT!

132 Gundam Wing

Oh, man really? No comments? I watched this series a dozen times between T.V. and DVD before the obsession wore off. It's a classic with the traditional Gundam philosophical and emotional depth. Good guys and bad are both strong, and the bad aren't necessarily bad... Which is realistic for a war anime. Good intensity on and off the battlefield. Gundam at it's finest.

Already commented but just goes to show that overall popularity does not necessarily determine how good something is. That why anime like Pokemon, digimon and Beyblades will seem better than anime like steins gate, death note and neon genesis evangelion. It all depends on what scale you measure on. In my opinion Gundam Wing has the best of both worlds and if it came a few decades later would destroy mecha anime like code geass and would be up their with titles like attack on titan, cowboy bebop etc. (Hard choice though because the voice actors for main cast was pretty good! ) - BigDaddyJ

I was in high school when I first watch this anime. What draws me at first is the bad-ass graphics at that time. But as the story progresses, you will be really amazed at how the storyline reflects the physical, psychological, and political effects of warfare. Told through the eyes of five teenagers, caught in a battle created by the old geezers hunger for power, this anime is a must see for all ages.

Was a good show definitely deserves to be a lot higher up.

133 Lovely Complex

Oh come on guys! 57? It is not the right place! The plot is so cute and the characters are so lovable I laughed so hard that my parents asked me if I was feeling sick! It is a distinctive love story of a really tall girl who falls for a really short guy... Give it a chance it is truly sweat!
And the feelings are drawn so well he came up with some totaly hilarious faces! It really is a light and truly funny anime!

I agree with everyone, this anime is hilarious, good characters, funny, romantic, drama I think was a great story, you don't have to miss it.

Ohh come'on this one of the best anime I have watch you guys should give it a try, personally this is one of my favorite, this anime is more realistic, it's funny, romantic, drama, insipirational and many more... Give it a try, don't hesitate...

Truly HILARIOUS! If you like this, watch "Hana Yori Dango"

134 Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic

135 Eureka 7

How! HOW DARE THEY NOT SET THIS AS NUMBER 1! This anime, is like no other, is has no equal, NOT 1 can express the emotion shown in this anime. It shows the story of a boy, named rin, who dreamed of something big. But what showed up on his door step? His match, the container which will hold every fiber of his being in the form called love. Her name is Eureka. She didn't even bat an eye at him at first. But love, it found a way to brake her shell and pierce into her heart. It gave them hope to strive for big things. Every character in this anime changed. Most for good, and went through hardships. This anime made me WISH for what they had. Dream for it, and move towards is with leaps and bounds. What the writers where able to put into this anime is amazing. It can NEVER be copied for what it has is unique. It's impossible. This anime deserves, no needs to be number 1. The whole world needs to found out what drives this anime. It is love. And love, it finds a way.

Eureka Seven is an anime capable of purest brilliance, proferring scenes of immaculate beauty, fantastical wonder or eye-widening perfection. However, these sublime moments are not peaks in an otherwise even landscape so much as they are truffles in mud and it often feels as though you are expected to sit through the duller moments, and put up with the ubiquitous inanity in order to be worthy of such a prize. Just a perfect anime to follow watch and let yourself cry over it for such a great creation unfortunately the end is too fast and fail in explanation

Greatest anime ever it should have been ranked #1 I love this anime it goes right into your heart making you feel all worm and fuzzy inside ranked 81 that's a shame I and probably many other think this should be ranked a lot higher maybe not 1# one but at least in the top 10 it really is a great anime series and should be ranked higher then 81 this is one of may favorite anime series of all time. Eureka 7 is Romeo and Juliet without the sad ending it should be ranked higher in the top 10

Very beautiful story, but packed with action, adventure, and romance as well. Worth every minute to watch.

136 Sonic X Sonic X Sonic X is a Japanese anime television series created by TMS Entertainment and based on the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series published by Sega.

My favourite show of all time. The Japanese was way better than the English. It also has parts from the sonic games. There's so many awesome characters in this show. Especially Knuckles because he's just a badass. I miss this show and hope they make a season 4. Now that Chris is gone, it'll be much better with a new season (Chris is annoying, he never leaves sonic alone)

This is absolute crap (Chris' fault) but I love season 3! Tails found the love of his life... Then lost her :'( - Pikachulover1

Some cool classic sonic anime

Sonic is hot

137 Heaven's Lost Property Heaven's Lost Property

Why in the world is this anime in the 200s it needs to be first this had every thing It needed to be a great anime it has a great story line, epic fights, nude comedy, great characters and back grounds for them, and most of all jaw dropping amazing shock and excitement!

One of the best anime I have ever seen the plot twist in the manga right now is INSANE really great series I recommend it

This show actually brought me into anime. I have watched stuff like evangelion and of course Pokemon but this was the one.

I think this should be #2 because I'm addicted to this anime as well but not as much as highschool dxd - Dudeisfluffy

138 Tokyo Mew Mew Tokyo Mew Mew

This is one of the first anime I watched and I loved it I was only 6 or 7 at the time and I loved how zoey was a cat and how she had magical powers it was just so cool! Also I love the love relationship with her and mark and it has a really good story line and just you just need to watch it!

LOve it, love it, love

You mean Inchio? Is that the English dub? Only one thing that bugs me about this: The outfits. Not ALL magical girl having to have shirt dresses.

Mint's dress is. About as long a my uniform shirt. It's THAT short. But other than that I like!

This was an awesome series! My favorite character was Bridget (I also like how each are different animals! So kawaii! - OtakuKat

139 Dance in the Vampire Bund

This is the first and one of the greatest anime's I watched I can't believe its not even in the top 20's well if only it was more popular but I don't usually watch vampire shows or animes but this one was just great and I heard they got it on netflix

Absolutely amazing! Just pissed because it only had 12 episodes, they should've made a season 2. Vampires rock!

If you love Vampires then you'll love this anime. If you love love triangle this anime is perfect. This anime has love, suspence, romance, love triangles, werewolves, fighting, and many more. This anime should be somewhere in the top 100s

140 Kekkaishi

Kekkaishi is a wonderful action, comedy with romance anime. Here you can see the improved quality of the characters even though the sketch is a bit different.

It should be up in the top 10 this is a bad ass anime to me but not a lot of people like it the story line is awesome the ending is not so good but a lot of good things come in this anime I can't believe its 74 in the top anime list that's just not right

It's the plot that sets out the action of two teenagers who's power is to seal away demons (spirits) Along the story the boy gets stronger and saves the day

Who the heck is rating this stuff? kekkaishi deserves at least 25
