Hn. It's difficult to say, as what people think often conflict with each other. Nevertheless, I'll throw down into this list with a few animes I think are legendary:

Legendary Action anime: Dragon Ball Z
Reasons: I think a lot of my childhood was based growing up on Dragon Ball Z. It was one of the first few animes licensed and shown on Saturday mornings. What was there not to like? An irrepressible hero, whose big heart and dedication to continually protect those who were dear to him, an ensemble cast of people surrounding him who support him and form the core basis of the show - memorable villains, the like. Dragon Ball Z established, or made popular many concepts that remain true in most of the shonen genre today - I call this the plucky-hero-who-is-good-at-kicking-ass-but-finds-out-world-is-bigger-than-him-when-a-powerful-bad-guy-turns-up-and-goes-on-a-series-of-training-regimens-to-become-more-powerful-to-protect-what-he-holds-dear-syndrome. Indeed, I dare assert that at it's core, Bleach, One Piece, Hunter X Hunter, Shaman King, and Naruto all have the same sort of base plotline to DBZ, just with different characters and different settings. I'm expecting to be flamed for this, but this is my opinion.

Legendary Sci-Fi anime: Akira (1988)
Reasons: I didn't watch Akira until much later in my otaku life, but once I did, I certainly did not regret it. It had themes contained within which amazed me that they were able to be considered at the time of writing. A dark cyberpunk epic, Katsuhiro Otomo is considered as one of the few directors who led the charge changing the character of animation from a distinctly childish theme to a very adult theme. Although the animation looks dated, if you compare it to other shows or movies from the time, you can see that is is at a much higher quality than anything else. A sci-fi epic, if any.

Honourable Mention: Ghost in the Shell (1995)
The very first sci-fi epic of the series that everyone seems to love right now, the movie Ghost in the Shell is an incredible watch, even to the uninitated. It has complex themes regarding the nature of humanity, and what it means to be truly alive, examining the definition of what it means to have a soul. The art is cutting edge for 1995 and the direction of the entire movie is beautiful, especially the part where Major Kusanagi drifts through the neon-lit city on a ferry.

Legendary Mecha anime: Super Dimensional Fortress Macross (1982)
I nominate Macross for being legendary, for it truly is. Known as Robotech, Macross was one of the few animes which were first licensed to be distributed in the English speaking world. I spent many a saturday morning cheering on Rick Hunter blowing up Zentradi and groaning as he tried to sort his tragic love life out. Unfortunately, it's licensing was also it's bane: due to complex licensing problems and a reticient licensee, no further Macrosses were brought to the rest of the english speaking world. What was so special about Macross? For one, it was an epic space story regarding a cross-racial war. Yes, it had giant robots, but that was insignificant in comparison to the totality of the story. For once, the robots weren't actually the focus of the anime. They were merely part of it, to facilitate the giant war that was going on. And when everything is looking bleak, the power of love - the power of song, shone brightly in the sea of darkness, providing hope, rallying everyone together, and saving the day.

Honourable Mention: Mobile Suit Gundam (1979)
Mobile Suit Gundam is another one of my legendary nominations. To be honest, it's on about the same par as Macross. It was one of the first few robot shows that focused on the robot not as a super robot, but as a real robot. Mobile Suit Gundam tackled some very tough themes about war and about humanity in particular, and pulled no punches as a space opera war epic. When I say it pulled no punches - I mean come on, in the beginning of the show, it's revealed that Zeon's Operation British consisted mainly of drpping colonies on major Earth cities. There is _no_ way something like that would be broadcasted these days in the wake of 9/11. It was large, complex, and advanced for it's time. The testament to that is the many Gundam Spin-offs that we have these days.

Legendary Drama Anime: Grave of the Fireflies (1988)
Deep, profound, and tear-jerking, Grave of the Fireflies is considered to be a dramatic, and historic epic set in the closing days of World War II. This anime is considered to transcend the boundaries of being merely animation and is considered on par with other historical epics like Steven Spielberg's "Shindler's List". It deals with the relationship of two orphaned children, a brother and sister, who are trying to survive the ending days of the war in Japan, dealing with famine, death, and the indifference of their fellow countrymen to their plight. This is a show that grabs your attention right from the start and leaves you with a hollow, yet bittersweet feeling when you are done with it. A truly epic and masterful work of storytelling.
