HANDS DOWN. This is the greatest anime/manga of all time. I can't believe it finally ended. No other anime gives you as much feels down the road. You will love the characters so much! My favorite is the Hashirama the First Hokage. The Naruto world is reinforced by so much past and history and the fights are so good worthy of being called ninja battle. No matter how strong the opponent Teamwork and Strategy is involved in the victory. The development of the emotions of the characters like Itachi, Shikamaru, Sasuke is just phenomenal. 10/10. Amazing you gotta check it out.

Feels...

Best anime out there

Naruto is just lit and nothing can even come close I also watch One Piece but One Piece kind of gets a little boring in some arcs and while that also happens in Naruto but hands down Naruto just has a better story and also has better fights. Naruto is the such a sad story that during some scenes you just can't help but cry mostly the stories of Jinchuriki's such as Gaara and Naruto. The Naruto and Minato scene made me cry the most.

2 Attack On Titan Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, created by Hajime Isayama, is one of the most popular Japanese anime series to be released.

Best characters, best relationships between them, has best funny, emotional, sad and epic moments, best plot, best drawing style... What is there not to be considered the best?

This is just amazing best anime ever

4 One Piece One Piece is a manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. The manga has been adapted into an original video animation (OVA) produced by Production I.G in 1998, and an anime series produced by Toei Animation, which began broadcasting in Japan in 1999 and has aired 851 episodes to date.

One piece is absolutely the best as it has so many arcs with wonderful episodes in it. The fact that it has not ended makes it even more exciting as many fans wait till Sunday for it to be shown in the U.S. The fact that this is the fourth best makes me so sad because Naruto though caught my attention makes too many characters seem either too OP or the storyline is just a little too cheezy. Next AOT is just to pg and bloody and gory for watchers like us. In addition Fairy Tail, though being my second favorite anime, is a little too cheezy and nothing seems just as calm and soothing as floating in the middle of an ocean trying to reach the end of it.

One piece is by far the best anime/manga I've ever seen. The beginning is slow and a little boring but after 50 episodes, we begin to see this wonderful, full of surprise story. Not only it's funny (sometimes I even have to pause to laugh ) but it also shows real world problems such as slavery or injustice in society. It's not a show where the characters are born strong and that love magically solves everything. It's really a good one. And as always : NEVER judge an anime without fully watching it.

I like this anime

One of the best and most long-running anime of all time.Every arc gets even more interesting than the previous and it has the right amount of fights and backstories in order to make you feel bombarded with different emotions as the plot develops.It also has the most lovable caracters I have ever seen in an anime-manga.

I'm not an anime person but if there's one mainstream anime I hear about a lot, its definitely DBZ - LightningBlade

One of the longest running, and with dragon ball super running and being successful (as compares to boruto) I think it should be higher on the list, not only that but its what brought anime to the west

Dbz mainstream or not I still love it!
