My Top 5 Anime Series

First, allow me to say that I am currently watching the following anime:
Pandora Hearts
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Digimon Xros Wars (Sue me! :P)
 
I won't list the completed ones, because it might give away my #1 (or not, it's not a very common #1, I must say...)
 
 

5) Code Geass

This is a bit typical…but why not? It’s hard to argue that this wasn’t a good anime. The animation was a bit questionable (everybody in the show was anorexic, it seemed) but otherwise it was a pretty well-rounded and fun anime…if not a bit drawn out.

What I loved about this anime is that it explored the blur between the concepts of good and evil. Lelouch was convinced that he was using his Geass for the betterment of the world, but his actions end up getting more and more innocent people killed. He realizes his wrongs and you see him slowly descend into madness, but at the same time you’re hoping that he does well. You know he has good intentions, but they just aren’t going over too well is what you keep telling yourself.

The show takes a spiral downward when it comes to quality in the middle of the second season. For me, it’s because it devolved into a bunch of meaningless mech battles when more time could have been spent on plot and character development. This is the reason why it’s only number 5.

I wish they had ended it sooner, but unlike most anime, this one has a GOOD ending. It gave closure to the story, and all loose ends (as far as I’m concerned) were tied up.

4) Darker Than Black

What gets at me about this show is that it didn’t have much of a plot or main character development. A boy named Hei (or Lee, pick one) is a contractor, a human being with a special power that can be used as long as one pays a price to use it, which can range from self-mutilation to having a drink of a beverage.

There are also beings called dolls. These beings are humans, but have no emotions and can send out spirits which they can see through. Dolls aren’t normally found alone and are usually seen helping contractors.

That’s the plot, well, that and Hei is trying to solve the mystery of his sister and the disappearance of a whole chunk of South America. The plot isn’t really mentioned until the last 5 episodes or so, which isn’t a bad thing, instead you get to know the characters. Hei isn’t developed as much as he should’ve been, I think, but the show is filled with a diverse cast of characters. Ranging from a two-bit detective to a talking cat (who is also a contractor), all of the characters seem genuinely human (even the dolls at points). The show is really fun to watch, and the ending is as intense as it should be.

However, for a while I was confused as to why I was watching the show, because the main plot was barely ever mentioned until, like I said, the last 5 episodes. Too late. It does deserve number 4 on my list though.

3) Elfen Lied

Oh, Elfen Lied. One of the most disturbing heart and gut-wrenching animes I have ever seen. The plot starts when a girl named Lucy (known as Nyu by some other people she meets later) breaks out of the laboratory she was being held captive in. Soldiers tried to stop her, but she was able to decapitate, maim, and just downright kill them without so much as laying a finger on them. This is because she’s a diclonious, a being that is born from normal human parents and one that can only be female. These beings are born with horns on their heads and will kill their parents once they get their vectors; invisible arms that are extremely powerful. Lucy escapes the lab and washes up on a beach completely naked and docile, the only words she’s able to say are “Nyu!”. A boy and his cousin stumble upon her and take her in, but Lucy is still inside her, and can awake at any point of time.

What makes this series so wonderful is not the horror and blood-soaked battle sequences, it’s the psychological elements that are shown throughout the story. All of the victims and characters close to Lucy go through many moments of fear and paranoia, and many times insanity if they’ve seen the extent of her powers. The characters here are great (notice what I look for in anime yet?), most notably Lucy, for you get to experience her backstory first-hand, and trust me, it’s not for the weak of heart.

2) .hack//SIGN

A very popular show, no doubt. A very good show, no doubt.

.hack//SIGN takes place in a MMO called “The World”, which is a notable game primarily for its use of headsets that allow you to see through your character’s eyes. This show follows the story of…well…just about all of the main characters on the show as they try to unravel the mystery of Tsukasa, a male player-character who can’t log out of the game.

What draws people into the show at first is the opening, of course. It just has to be seen, it can’t be described by mere words on a page. Despite the setting, there is not much combat in the show, in fact, it’s practically non-existent in many episodes.

Some of the best parts of the show are when the soundtrack kicks in, .hack//SIGN’s soundtrack is one of the best-composed soundtracks in any anime I have ever seen. The music blends in perfectly with the surreal-ness of The World and what the characters themselves are experiencing in it.

The only thing that keeps this anime out of my number 1 spot is the ending. It’s horrible. Many plot points that were introduced at the end are unresolved and stay that way…for a reason…they want you to buy .hack//INFECTION for the PS2! Enjoy that one…

While the game may suck, the anime is fantastic.

 1)Now and Then, Here and There

“What the hell?” you say, “I’ve NEVER heard of that show!”

That’s just fine; I love it all the same.

The story revolves around a boy named Shu, who while coming home from school one day finds a strange girl sitting on a smokestack. He climbs up the smokestack and learns that her name is Lala-Ru, but afterwards is forcibly torn from his world and teleported into a large fortress called Hellywood (symbolism is the name of the game here. No, it is not bashing American culture). Here he is seen as an intruder and is imprisoned, and he slowly finds out what’s going on in this world, a war over water, waged by the mad king of Hellywood, King Hamdo.

This show is my favorite anime because of the sheer amounts of emotion it managed to pull out of me. You feel happiness, sadness, anger, frustration and everything inbetween over the 13 episodes of this anime. It explores the human condition and ideas of rape, child abuse, kidnapping, religion, friendship, betrayal, and innocence in such an effective way that one will not come out of the series without a new perspective on something.

The characters here are deep, while Shu may seem like the inspiration of Naruto’s character at first, there is no way that he is. Shu is deeply conflicted with his ideas of justice and right and wrong when he comes to Hellywood. There are times where you feel that should just jump out into the anime and kill King Hamdo yourself. It is a wonderful show.

The only bad thing is that the animation budget seemed to only allow paper and a box of colored pencils (it doesn’t look THAT bad but it’s certainly not the best animation out there). I recommend watching the subtitled version, the dubbed version of King Hamdo’s voice might just make you want to kill yourself. It’s that bad.

So yes, that’s my top 5. No DBZ or FLCL to be found. I’m pretty proud of this list. What do you guys think? *builds wall from DBZ fans*

Your favorite anime is now Tetsujin 28.

I am totally okay with this now.

I heard Now and Then, Here and There was a kick ass show.  I might have to check it out someday.
 
There was something else I was going to say...
 
Oh yeah...

@sagesebas: Thanks for the tip, but I DID post it in Off-Topic. I figure there should be some Giantbomb members who enjoy anime, no?

Posted by DuhQbnSiLo

Saying Code Geass has a GOOD ending is an understatement. It made that anime for me, it's the reason I consider it so great!

@Thunderstarter:   We have had this discussion before here.  It's OK to post topics about anime here.  If people give you crap, tell them to fuck off.

Dragon Ball

Edited by BraveToaster

Ellen Lied is pretty good and I watch the first episode of Now and Then, Here and There. 
   
 If you have a problem with Anime threads, I suggest you avoid any threads that have the word Anime in them. No one gives a shit about Anime Vice and we talk about everything else on this site, so get off the OP's case. It's also a blog post,  you dumb fuck.

Posted by animateria

Bleh, Code Geass is pretty bad in my opinion... I stopped caring about anime when people made it out to be the holy grail of the medium. It's just not good.
 
But yeah, of course it's just my personal opinion in the end. But there's no other show that leaves such a bad taste in my mouth than Code Geass.
 
Well... Might be because I grew up with everything from the above mentioned Tetsujin 28 (Or Chul-In 28 in Korean as I knew it), and melodramatic robot stuff like Escaflowne. But everything about Code Geass is unoriginal and exploitative to it's core (And I'm not talking about the whole Pizza Hut nonsense).  
 
I don't know why I always rant on how much I hate it though... I don't do that with other anime stuff I hate. I guess it rubs me the wrong way.

Posted by EvolutionX0
Some pretty good series you listed there, 
Code Geass was decent enough to re-watch. 

Elfien Lied was emotionally awesome but the ending was terrible.  (second season?)
Darker Than Black was great, season 2 not so much.
The other two i haven't watched yet but they sound good enough to watch. 
 
My Top 5 

1. Hellsing Ultimate
2. Full Metal Panic! Fumoffu 
3. Great Teacher Onizuka  
4. Elfen Lied
5. Darker Than Black
Edited by ESREVER
@Thunderstarter: I did not expect to see SIGN on there. I haven't met anyone, save for a few people, who liked SIGN. 
It was my first anime, and is also one of my favorites. The soundtrack is what made it for me. I still play Fake Wings every so often. The song mellows me out no matter what mood I'm in.
 
Elfen Lied and Geass were amazing as well.  
I'm curious if you have seen the Ghost in the Shell series or Gantz. Those are the other ones I have seen... oh, and Chobits. 
I feel we have similar tastes in our choice of anime, so I shall give those other shows on your list a watch. 
 
Geass made me cry...  
 
Posted by Semition

I really did not like Code Geass at all (or DN for that matter), because I felt that Lelouch wasn't actually smart. He was what people, who didn't understand manipulation or battle tactics, thought was smart.

Elfen Lied stinks. The rest of your list is pretty ok.

Edited by WoodenPlatypus

Code Geass is good to a certain point. 
I came into this blog prepared to rip my hair out at seeing the words Bleach :/ 
Posted by DarkShaper

Great now I feel really bad that I have the box set for Now Then Here and There just sitting on my shelf. as for the others I found Code Geass to be kinda meh, I can't stand Elfen Lied, I haven't seen Darker than Black, (but I plan to now) and I love pretty much all things .hack so I approve of this list.

Edited by TheDiscreetCharmOf

I used to be a cynical basatard towards anime, but ever since I watched Neon Genesis Evangelion, my perspective has changed for the better. As for favorites, mine would be the following: 
 
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Ghost in the Shell
Anything by Mr. Miyazaki. 
And that's about it.  
  
I liked stuff like DBZ and Pokemon when I was young but not so much anymore. I also used to like Naruto, but the more it went on, the more I less interest. Quick question: Does Avatar: The Last Airbender count?

What?  I am way into anime, I've just not seen that many series.  One of the reasons I enjoy N.H.K. so much is because I can relate so much to it.
Posted by Faint

im watching elfen lied now about half way through. it seems like they had some decent ideas but whoever wrote the scripts just was a nut case and its sort of gone array. the characters dont have much depth and the main boy and girl (not the horned sheila) i swear they said they are cousins yet they are making out wtf? at first i got some neon genesis vibes, but the characters have significantly less depth. im having a pretty good time watching it anyway. i like how they are in a place that holds 10 people and its slowly filling up. its pretty homely. i also like that view they always go to at the top of the steps.
 
best animes: 1. neon genesis.        2. death note.         3. dragonball/z/gt          4. trigun           5. i dunno?

@Thunderstarter:   I haven't seen any of the shows you've mentioned in your top 5, but I respect your opinion.  Currently, I am trying to figure out a favorites list myself, but when my mood changes, so does my list.  I need to solidify a list in my head and narrow the number down to a select few.  That might help me organize my thoughts.   Right now I think they would include but maybe not in this order:
  1. One Piece
  2. The Slayers
  3. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
  4. Eureka Seven
  5. Last Exile
 
But then what about Martian Successor Nadesico, Sora no Woto, Mahaburo, Shin Mazinger Shougeki Z-Hen and Read or Die TV?  Argh, it's too hard to decide for me.  I haven't seen Bubblegun Crisis in a long time, but I used to love it.  Same is true of NGE.  I have seen Super Dimensional Fortress Macross recently again and I still love it.  Shouldn't that be on a list considering its staying power?  I'm probably over thinking things, but all this runs through my mind when formulating a list like this.
 
On a side note, you might want to check out GB's sister site Anime Vice.  Honestly, there are few people there really willing to discuss anime and so more are always needed.  A few of us from here have been trying to step it up a notch by participating in actual conversation and not the Battles or RP section.  Stick to the "Just Anime" section (unless you also read manga) and read/comment on the blogs and news and you might get something more from it than if you wade into the "new topics" or "general" areas.

He said it once, years ago at GS to set up a trailer for an anime game. He doesn't say it every time Japanese animation is mentioned. 
Posted by SpiralStairs

I will probably check out Black Lagoon. The only other ones I have watched are Cowboy Bebop, which was fantastic, and Neon Genesis Evangelion, which was also great. I still need to watch the End of Evangelion though.

Posted by JackSukeru

Out of that list I've only seen Code Geass, it was enjoyable, apart from some of the sillier/stupider plot twists and it made me like seeing giant robots fight. Also ending was pretty kickass. 
 
I've been shown parts of the first episode of Elfen Lied, I don't think I want to watch it. I do want to watch .Hack sometime though, it seems cool, even though I sorta spoiled myself on it on TV troupes. 
 
I can't think of any anime that I've enjoyed lately that was actually any good so I'll just mention Casshern Sins from a while back as my indie darling or whatever. Also the first half of Kamen Rider Hibiki is really my favorite live-action slice of life anime evar.
