SAO is good, but I don't think it deserves to be #1. - Absolite

I love both Sword Art Online and Sword Art Online II! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Like it but SAO 2 (GGO) is a lot better

SAO for the win!

2 Durarara!! Durarara!!

This is the best anime ever! There should be a season 2! This might even replace Bleach and Naruto if they keep making episodes!

Not even close, Durarara is the best, next list please!

This should be on the top on every anime list on this website.

3 Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

This is the best show why isn't it in #1!

9 Angel Beats! Angel Beats! Angel Beats! is a 13-episode Japanese anime television series produced by P.A.Works and Aniplex and directed by Seiji Kishi.

10 Black Rock Shooter

BLACK ROCK SHOOTER ALL THE WAY. Ever seen a girl wearing black, has a robotic arm, and has a blue flame of eternal life (that's what I like to call it) in her eye? This girl is called BLACK ROCK SHOOTER. And she will make herself known.

Do you ever see a girl that has the ability to light a flame in her eye ultimately kick butt?! BRS is just too epic to not watch... WHO CAN HOLD A CANNON THAT'S ALMOST 3/4 YOUR SIZE?

Hell yeah black rock shooter is the best anime character EVER nobody beats BRS

The Contenders

11 Steins;Gate Steins;Gate

This is an AMAZING anime. It's about time travel - a character-driven sci-fi anime that does a wonderful job on the characters. This anime will make you laugh at the bantering between the characters, make you cry at the serious twist halfway through the series (and again near the end at the sacrifices the main character had to make, and again at the wonderfully executed romance). I recommend it. To practically everyone.

12 Future Diary Future Diary
13 Clannad: After Story
14 Fate/Zero Fate/Zero Fate/Zero is a series of light novels written by Gen Urobuchi, illustrated by Takashi Takeuchi, and is a prequel to Type-Moon's visual novel, Fate/stay night. An anime adaptation of Fate/Zero was jointly produced by Aniplex, nitroplus, Type-Moon, Seikaisha, and Ufotable that ran from 2011-2012.
