Top 10 Best Anime Episodes

The problem about anime is that you can't just see your favorite episode of an anime, whenever you want! Still there are some episodes, that just stood out for being simply incredible!
The Top Ten
1 "Shoto Todoroki: Origin" Episode 23 - My Hero Academia

Oh... My... God! Best episode of this series so far. Excellent animation, excellent structure. This is how all battle episodes should be. Someone who was rooting for Todoroki instead of the main protagonist could really be afraid of Izuku as an enemy.

It was a battle where the two opponents were scary to each other, keeping the viewer excited about what's going to happen. The flashbacks were really well-timed, and the scenes that needed special animation and soundtrack were excellent, such as Todoroki using the fire plus the flashbacks, or the final blow between him and Izuku. Best episode ever!

2 "Confrontation" Episode 2 - Death Note

Light thought he was the smartest man in town, but L was one step ahead!

That first time you realize how much of a threat L actually is... This episode is pure gold.

This is where it all began: the greatest cat and mouse chase in anime history.

3 "Re;" Episode 50 - Code Geass

Undebatably the best anime ending of all time. The episode itself is godly.

The greatest episode in the history of anime. Nothing comes close!

The ending is just a pure masterpiece. Nothing comes close to it!

4 "Overcast" Episode 7 - Death Note

The best episode you can ever ask an anime to make. Although we all know that Light is somehow going to survive, we did not know whether Naomi Misora would. For all we know, she could have survived and given information to the police, and the plot could have been awesome from there on, too. Plus, it showed that Light would indeed kill anyone if they threatened him, which is another way of character development.

And the ending, the ending. As Naomi's face becomes dark and lifeless, she heads on to her inevitable suicide, to the stairs of heaven. Just a godlike episode.

5 "Hero" Episode 54 - Attack on Titan

The greatest anime episode ever. Levi taking on the Beast Titan, Armin taking on the Colossal Titan, Mikasa and the Survey Corps taking on the Armored Titan, and Erwin taking the charge. Everything you liked about the series is stuffed into a single episode.

This could be the greatest episode I have ever seen in anything. Everything from Erwin to Armin is absolutely amazing.

One of the best TV show episodes ever. It's up there with the best Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Sopranos episodes.

6 "Gaara vs. Rock Lee: The Power of Youth Explodes!" Episode 48 - Naruto

Underdog vs. Monster. It's really cool to see a side character beating up one of the main villains from the series.

7 "The End of the World" Episode 14 - Sword Art Online
8 "Fairy Tail of the Dead Meeeeeeeeen" Episode 226 - Fairy Tail
9 "Beyond the Escape" Episode 7 - Charlotte

After the loss of Ayumi, Yuu separates himself from others out of grief but soon finds himself going down a dark path from which there may be no return.

Charlotte may not be one of the best anime, but this one episode hits very hard!

Woah, this came out of nowhere.

What an episode!

10 "Spring Wind" Episode 22 - Your Lie in April

Music connects people together. This episode justified it so well, even if it's from our world to the afterlife (Heaven). Kaori and Kosei play violin and piano to their final masterpiece performance.

The Contenders
11 "Chinmoku: Silence" Episode 25 - Death Note

This episode is stunning and amazing. Every moment of it gives me chills, and it has so much symbolism and foreshadowing. Everything about this episode is beautifully done - the animation, the tone, the music, the writing, the script. The foreshadowing with the bells and the metaphor in the scene where L washes Light's feet add to how this episode left me in complete shock.

12 "Zero x And x Rose" Episode 126 - Hunter X Hunter

The smile on Netero's face is just terrifying. I almost feel bad rooting for humanity. That's how crazy this is.

This episode was perfect. The animation, drawing, voice acting, directing, and the overall feeling were amazing. Thanks, Madhouse!

13 "Open The Steins Gate" Episode 23 - Steins;Gate

The moment when everything clicks from the first episode and you realize exactly what happened on July 28, 2010, at the Radio Tower is the best scene in all of anime, and just one example of the excellent storytelling in this masterpiece of an anime.

14 "Deku vs. Class A" Episode 136 - My Hero Academia

There's one thing I look for most when watching an anime: feels! And this episode is the definition of that.

15 "I Won't Rely on Anyone Anymore" Episode 10 - Puella Magi Madoka Magica
16 "Violet Evergarden" Episode 9 - Violet Evergarden
17 "Surprised to Be Dead" Episode 1 - Yu Yu Hakusho

Good grief, I was not prepared for the feels train to hit me like this in the first episode. It's weird because I don't normally feel anything at funerals in real life, but just seeing everyone's reaction to Yusuke's death made me cry like a baby, even though I don't even know him.

The voice of Keiko was so emotional. Her screams didn't sound like acting. It was as if someone had really died. Kuwabara showed all signs of grief. It's just the first episode, and oh, the feels. The feels!

Clannad took two seasons for me to cry just a bit. This show got me tearing up in one episode, and it was my first time watching it, so I had no connection to any characters yet. This episode is just a canon of feels.

18 "Truth" Episode 141 - Naruto Shippuden

The greatest plot twist in the history of anime when you realize that the guy you thought was a crazy murderer is, in fact, a hero saving people from shadows.

Best villain to hero plot twist in any anime.

19 "Ballad of The Fallen Angels" Episode 5 - Cowboy Bebop

This is arguably the best episode of the entire series, which is, without a doubt, a masterpiece of a show. After four average episodes, Ballad of Fallen Angels comes as a tornado and takes everyone by surprise. The story involves Spike's past and his inability to escape it. His story can be described in no other words but brilliantly. It introduces his arch-nemesis, who also captures the role of a ruthless villain beautifully.

The episode starts strong and takes viewers on a rollercoaster ride. The soundtrack is masterfully done, capturing every moment beautifully. The whole episode is full of thrill, tension, and emotions. The church shootout is certainly one of the most iconic scenes of the series. Overall, this episode truly proves what Bebop is all about, and it is near perfection.

20 "Death of The Undying" Episode 19 - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Damn, I was overjoyed when Lust died! Seriously, what a brutal killer she was. And when she killed Maes, I was so sad I spoiled three boxes of tissues. All hail Roy Mustang!

Many episodes of this anime are awesome, but this one is the starting point of the change in the characters and their development.

Mustang quietly reminds us he is the biggest badass in the most explosive way.

21 “Scenery For A Doomsday” Episode 73 - Monster
22 "Encounter" Episode 9 - Death Note

An episode with good shots, tension (especially in THAT scene), and a very interesting color palette. Here, Light gets serious against L and is totally determined to kill him. That laugh at the end is really great!

It only took him a matter of days to narrow down Kira's location and correctly suspect Yagami Light. That's how much of a genius L is!

23 "Memories in the Mist" Episode 108 - Pokémon: Sun and Moon

Ash and co. get enveloped in a strange mist where the boundaries between the real world and the afterlife blur. Ash and Torracat reunite with Stoutland, Torracat's mentor. Lillie and Gladion search for their father inside the mist. Mallow is worried about meeting her mother after the last words her mother heard from her were, "I hate you."

This is one of the saddest but also the sweetest anime episodes ever!

Oh, Sun and Moon! I'm so sorry for all the insults at the beginning. I am glad for everything. The stories, the characters... I will miss everyone. I can't believe how Sun and Moon turned itself into one of the best series in Pokémon. But what made the series legendary is this episode. It's a pure tear-jerker where you'll cry tears of both sadness and happiness.

24 "The Thrill of Destruction" Episode 118 - My Hero Academia
25 "Transformed at Last" Episode 95 - Dragon Ball Z

I was so amazed when he transformed into Super Saiyan that I ran around my house in amazement.
