I didn't really like it. Wackiness for the sake of wackiness IMO. That's how I feel about Luc Besson movies as well, but others love them.

Ghost in The Shell (Movie & Show), LoTGH, Redline, most Satoshi Kon & Miyazaki films, Fist of The North Star, Angel's Egg, HxH, NHK, & Gurren Lagann.

I have no interest in Gurren Lagann, but the others I'm going to watch soon.

Maybe...Eureka 7? And Trigun probably. And Ghost in the Shell.
And uh, shamefully, FMA Brotherhood. Even though I was such a big fan of the manga.

I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Popular anime I want to watch but haven't had the time yet:
Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Ghost in the Shell, Code Geass, Black Lagoon etc.
There are many more but I'm too lazy to name all of them now.

I've never seen Clannad/Clannad: After Story and I doubt I'll ever watch it. I considered watching it but then I read the synopsis and watched the trailer and it didn't look like something I'd enjoy.

hmm literally everyone i've ever met who's had an interest in anime or animation has gushed about what a masterpiece cowbop bebop is n i am really interested in the premise n aesthetic of it, just can't seem to find the time while trying to finish other series sigh

code geass gets a lot of praise as well but i can't seem to look past the art style which is more of a personal hindrance than anything

i'd guess one piece also fits into this category as well ? although ...i don't think i'll ever find the time or motivation to trap myself in a series that long

This is what happened to me with Sword Art Online and A Certain Magical Index. Other folks loved them, I listened, it didn't work out. I didn't make it farther than six episodes into either one.

But on the other hand, I started the Monogatari series on the strength of hearsay, and haven't regretted that at all. I sometimes love quirky, stylized stuff, and it's been playing my song so far.

Anyway, back on topic, I haven't seen FLCL either. Lots of people say it will blow my damn mind.


SAO and ACMI are terrible. A Certain Scientific Railgun is a bit better.

The ~gatari series is a mixed bag, but the style is arresting even when the content is concerning.

FLCL is just weird for the sake of being weird. I appreciate that someone did it, but I feel no need to finish it.

As for me, Beebop, Evangelion, On Ice, and That Volleyball One are on my radar. I feel I need to binge those.

See, I've been wanting to check out Railgun, and I've heard good things. Does it stand on it's own without Index, or is this a "eat your meat before you have your pudding" situation?

Definitely take a look at Bebop. Once in a while the high praise is justified, and IMO this is one of those times. And even if you don't care for it, the soundtrack is a world unto itself.

What an odd and interesting question. Taken literally, it's impossible to answer. But moving beyond that uselessly obvious observation, it's also interesting because "best" is relative. Thus, not only do I need to guess at the quality of works I've never seen, but I also have to guess at how their quality would live up to my standards of entertainment. Quite an engaging and unusual exercise.

With that in mind, my guess would be Yokohama Shopping Log.

Bearing in mind that I tend to place a high value on Iyashikei, it makes sense that I would think highly of this show as a progenitor of the genre. Furthermore, comparisons are often made between this show and Aria, which for me personally is the best anime that I actually have seen. So even though its impossible to know for sure, Yokohama Shopping Log would certainly be my best bet.

Real talk your favorite anime you never watched is the one you are watching.Because you can't watch an anime you don't know about and if you aren't watching it next it isn't the best one you haven't watched.

Best is entirely subjective, but from critical ratings, the most highly reviewed anime I haven't seen to date is Fullmetal Alchemist.

Grave of the Fireflies, but I have no real desire to watch it

Full metal Alchemist (2003). I've been thinking about watching that sometime, only watched a handful of episodes in like, 2006.

Kill la Kill.

I started Revolutionary Girl Utena, but never finished it, which I should probably do

Any of the Monogatari entries after Nisemonogatari, Just don't really like Monogatari

Dude your explanation was so compelling I went and googled what this anime was.
I really, really enjoyed Kabu no Isaki and I had no idea that the author had a previous work, let alone one that was made into an anime. You've just introduced me to an anime I would have never discovered normally that I probably already love.

One Piece and anything good with Mecha in it. Mecha, stretchy arms, and weird faces ruin immersion for me.





It sounds like Gurren Lagann is the perfect anime for you. You're so lucky. It has all three!

People always tell me the Monogatari series is great, but I only watched one of them and that's it.
