41 Motohiro Katou - Q.E.D., C.M.B., Rocket Man
42 Masami Kurumada - Saint Seiya

Even when Masami Kurumada has made other anime, Saint-Seiya is by far his greatest achievement. It has great characters and a drama inspired first in greek mythology and later in other traditions such as norse and Christian folklore. I really believe this anime must be among the top 10 in any ranking and from any point of view. Its drawings and soundtracks are amazing and they even improve as the history and sagas progress.

43 Yusuke Murata - Eyeshield 21

One punch man is new

45 Hayao Miyazaki - Spirted Away, Princess Mononoke Hayao Miyazaki - Spirted Away, Princess Mononoke Hayao Miyazaki is a Japanese film director, producer, screenwriter, animator, author, and manga artist.

Miyazaki is not in the top 10! He must be number 1
Well Miyazaki is the legendary manga-ka, he got really good reasons to be the 1st:-

1) his anime are all told within maximum 2 hours and 30 min, they have a story, shows the characters personalities, complex solution and both adults and children can watch it and enjoy it unlike naruto, DBZ, one piece which need 200+ episodes to explain their crap, I mean 9 tail attack on the village was explained all over again with Naruto met his mother which means that they had explained it all at chapter 500 something. So they can't do any good manga without having much chapters but Miyazaki did something that they will never be able to do and it is that he can explain everything in 2 hours not 300+ episodes.

2) he hooked the European and let them know what anime is (princess Mononoke) and anruto or one piece didn't do any of that, the rest of the wolrd didn't know anime from naruto or one piece, they knew it from Miyazaki's ...more

Spirited away is full of all the things manga must be full of!
It's mature in a non obtrusive way, it has love of the right kind, no hate, moves fast...

He made the best anime movies of all time like princess mononoke or totoro and is a legend! I don't understand why he is not in the top ten vallah yaa

Manga and anime wouldn't be what they are if it wasn't for Hayao. Kishimoto and Kubo being in higher positions is an insult to the art of manga.

46 Kusanagi Mizuho - Akatsuki no Yona, NG Life

Amazing plots? Unique and well drawn characters? Well done cliches and dramas? Emotional? Shoujo with a good bleand of drama and/or action? Strong female leads? Amazing art? What more could you want! And Mizuho sensei brings it all to the table!

47 Hajime Isayama - Shingeki No Kyojin

I don't know if he is a new but Attack on titan is really great! he knows how to build things up, god luck to him.

He's great, yeah, but... We're Ai Yazawa?

48 Yoshizumi Wataru - Handsome Girlfriend
49 Obana Miho - Kodocha
50 Hikawa Kyoko - From Far Away

You know sometimes simple is great

51 Mia Ikumi - Tokyo Mew Mew

Her work is fantastic

52 An Nakahara - Kilari
53 Asada Hiroyuki - I'll, Tegami Bachi
54 Lynn Okamoto - Elfen Lied

A very shocking and tender anime, at the same time. I had never seen anything so violent and yet touching in the same series. Great anime
