You heard it here first, folks. Tiger & Bunny is the greatest anime of all time. Remember, this poll should not be construed as a massive online popularity contest, but rather as an objective evaluation of all anime made within the last 100 years. I.e. Attack on Titan is objectively better than Space Battleship Yamato, and there's no arguing to the contrary.
