This is my all time favourite. I wish I could erase my memories of having watched this and watch it all over again because it's so damn good

Deserves 1st place! Whoever tries to change this from 1st place and succeed, DIE

Hunter x Hunter is overrated. The anime is slow paced and sucks. Thank god I dropped this. One Piece is better than this trash. - danhibiki

HxH is the greatest of all time

3 One Piece 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 842 episodes to date.

Would have been Dragon Ball but it was ruined by Dragon Ball GT.

4 Death Note Death Note Death Note is a Japanese television drama series based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. The show is centered around Light Yagami a promising highschooler and aspiring detective with a strong sense of "justice".

Best anime of all time, surpasses even Bleach

5 Boku No Hero Academia Boku No Hero Academia

I think for the anime of Boku No Hero Academia, it should be higher on the list. With the starting of season 3, it has been becoming one of the most popular anime of Shonen

While no element of the show is unique unto itself, it does however do everything that it wants to borderline perfectly

It's running very good. Hope it gets even more intense and violent. YEAH! - Mcgillacuddy

Best anime for 2016. - mutoashirogi

6 Dragon Ball Dragon Ball Dragon Ball is a Japanese anime television series produced by Toei Animation. It made anime popular in America and is based on the manga of the same name by Akira Toriyama. It was dubbed in English on Cartoon Networks Toonami block and still has many fans today.

This is way more adventurous and fun when compared to Dragon Ball Z. I love them all, but the character development in Dragon Ball and overall show quality completely trumps DBZ.

7 Naruto Shippuden Naruto Shippuden Naruto: Shippuden is the ongoing sequel to the original Naruto anime and covers the Naruto manga from volume twenty-eight on. The TV adaptation of Naruto: Shippuden debuted in Japan on February 15, 2007 on TV Tokyo. It is developed by Studio Pierrot and directed by Hayato Date.

One of the Best Anime Ever

Need Bleach to come back everything else is absolute trash. Even Dragon ball has nothing on Bleach. Why in gods name did they ever stop making this?

Make Bleach anime return please! 1

Bleach in my opinion is by far one of the best ever made

After Bleach I can't watch any other anime, all others seem substandard.

This anime is so good from the story to the characters and even the filler by far the best magic anime right above black clover

In my opinion Fairy tail is one of the best anime shows.

My first manga right here. I’ll stick with it until the end and no one can stop me.

Thisanime has great plot...several diverse and interesting characters the only vad thing is that this anime drags too much just like most of the anime's (one peice,naruto,bleach,dragon ball z)

14 Shaman King
15 Gintama Gintama Gin Tama, also styled as Gintama, is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Hideaki Sorachi and serialized, beginning on December 8, 2003, in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump.

I do not understand why it's on number 17. It's comedy is top tier, the action is golden, and just Gintoki is a great character. Okita is my favourite, but still. It's not just satirical, there's some action too, and some good one at that. This should be no. 1, what the hell. Well, it can compete with Hunter x Hunter (2011), but I prefer Gintama cause it's Gintama.

I think this anime is super underrated

Best anime ever dude

Gintokiii! Absolutely my favorite Jump anime with my favorite Jump hero.
