Well, here is my list of what I think is legendary.

Legendary Ecchi Anime: DearS. It is so ecchi that it is borderline on hentai. Even though there was more fanservice than a story it kept me coming back for more. I was quite disappointed when the season finale didn't end with a conclusion but as an open end teaser, making us fans think that there is going to be another season.

Legendary Romance Anime: When I think of this genre I have to go with more of an old school series called Maison Ikkoku. It is a sweet and comical series that I really think can be call classic.

Legendary Drama Anime: When I think of this one, what pops into my mind is another Josei series call NANA. It is realistic and deals with growing up and coming to terms with what choices one has picked. I really think this series deserve this title due to being quite dramatic and it's point blank story telling.

And as Honorable mention, Gankutsuou, it is a mature story for a mature audience. When you think of this story, you think of the art. It is breath taking. And the rendition of Alexander Dumas' classic revenge tale, The Count of Monte Cristo is refreshing and quite fascinating.


Legendary Action Anime: Lupin the third. I won't repeat what others have said before.

Legendary Sci-fi anime: When it comes to Sci-fi, if it counts. . .Crest of the Stars automatically lights in my head. I can't say how much I love this series not for the batttles or space it is mainly for the romance aspects of it, but how everything connected is realistic for being a space series.

Legendary Comedy Anime: Shin Crayon, what more can I say. Or Doraemon. Both of them are tied in my book. Reason why? both this series relatively can compete with Family guy in my book.

Legendary psychological anime: I have to Say Monster. I won't repeat what others have said.

Legendary mecha anime: I really enjoyed Macross so my opinion lies in with Brennon.

Legendary horror anime: Horror? I can't say that there is much horror in Anime that would shock me. But I think Higurashi no naku /koro ni kai. I like how much of a psychological thriller it is.

Legendary Supernatural anime: The first one comes to my mind is Ghost Hunt. I really can't say it is legendary but I think it has the potential to be.

Legendary Fantasy Anime: I'll go with Record of the Lodess War on this one. Who can deny elves?

Legendary Historical Anime: Wow there is many that seem to tie or on par with each other on this. Just to name four that really stands out in my mind is, Rose of Versailles, Le Chevalier D'Eon, Rurouni Kenshin, and Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto.

Legendary Gore/Bloody Anime: Claymore comes to mind

Legendary Adventure Anime: One Piece. Again I have to agree with Brennon on this one.

A couple that I need to add because of the different genres:

Legendary Sports Anime: Slam Dunk and Hajime no Ippo. If you have watch this you'll know what I mean.

Legendary Magical girl anime:Sailor moon it's because I have watched this before any of the others.

Legendary Flopped Anime: Sadly, I have to say Final fantasy unlimited: makes no sense, you couldn't care less about the characters and generic art. I would rather play chess than watch it. Oh yeah. . .also Blue Gender. I still have no idea what it is about.

Legendary Ecchi Anime: I never watch much of this genre before but i would say it would be Kanokon.
Legendary Romance Anime:I dunno... there's too many to choose from.
Legendary Drama Anime: Chrno Crusade. Even though it has its fair share of bloodshed and things of the like, it still has drama and I cried so much at the ending.
Legendary Action Anime: I dunno... there's too many to choose from.
Legendary Sci-fi anime: FullMetal Alchemist, it's full of alchemy and scientific facts rite?
Legendray Detective Anime: Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro!!! Although the graphics are not that top-notched and sometimes may be scorned at, the crime, plots for each episode are the best I've seen so far in my entire life (almost) and I highly recommend this anime.
Legendary Comedy Anime: Erm... Lovely Complex? Because I laughed all the way?
Legendary psychological anime: Among all of the psychological anime I've watched, I choose MONSTER! Detectives, psychological horror what more could you ask for?
Legendary mecha anime: Personally, I would have choose Gundam but I would say it would be Macross since Macross is closer to reality. Reality wins.
Legendary horror anime: Well, I dunno since I've never watched an anime that exactly scares the hell out of me before.
Legendary Supernatural anime: Hmm... too many......
Legendary Fantasy Anime: Final Fantasy VII? Bishounens and the graphics and plotlines?
Legendary Historical Anime: Saiunkoku Monogatari or Twelve Kingdoms or Victorian Romance Emma
Legendary Gore/Bloody Anime: Claymore. It has all the gore and blood and whatever you have.
Legendary Adventure Anime: Hunter X Hunter

Man, you quoted a lot of classics. NANA is indeed an incredible drama series that I considered when I was doing my review/write-up, but it bowed out to my nomination, Grave of the Fireflies.

Crest of the Stars was incredible. I loved all three animes/OVAs, it was simply amazing - not because of the realism, but because of the totality of the imagination of the writer, Hiroyuki Moroika. He even created a whole new language for the Abh for use in the book. His imagination as well as the compelling way in which the story was told redefined how I saw sci-fi epics.

Slam Dunk is a very notable anime for the title of legendary. I never watched it, but I grew up reading the manga. It was funny, witty, and interesting. It was one of the few animes/mangas of the time to make popular what I call the "talented person joins a sports team and becomes better while fighting rivals" archtype. It established, or made popular many norms that you can clearly see in many sports animes these days. However, I think that the true title for legendary should go to Captain Tsubasa (1983), which clearly popularised sport animes itself. (I never watched it, heh).

In total agreement with Sailor Moon for Legendary Magicl Girl Anime. There's no contest; Sailor Moon popularised the concept and revived interest in the genre itself by being itself.

Agreeing with everything that the great Brenan mentioned I would also like to stress and point out for
Legendary Drama, Legendary Action & Legendary Sci-Fi the great anime that is a Genre on its own COWBOY BEBOP
here is why; Besides the fact that I may have been under certain substance influence during my first encounter with Cowboy Bebop(just 4 your info & laughs ), the fact is that from the intro, the theme song Tank catches your attention with its catchy jazz and cool feel to it and from there on the episodes were no where near dissapointing, they were outstanding.

Legendary Drama-if you where to focus on the main plot of the whole story (you dont have to) and look at the encounters between Vicious and Spike it was more than drama, it was Legendary Drama. The path that brought them both to this ordeal and outcome just left you breathless with the thought in your mind of wanting more. And just that one episode with that one scene, the infamous episode 5 where Spike and Vicious are in a stand off with Spikes gun on Vicious chest and Vicious sword on Spikes chest. Now that is a Legendary Scene. And thats just one episode. You don't have to just focus on those episodes because the rest of the series was awesome as well with every episode having climatic battles and dramatic scenes with many of whom would reach out to you deeply leaving you wondering, guessing, happy, sad and even sometimes empty.

Legendary Action-this one is easy because the Bebops crew are bounty hunters and how much action can a bounty hunter have right, riiigghhtt .. Every episode had action in it. No matter what the episode was about there had to be some form of physical interaction between individuals forming turmoils that resulted in confrontations. "The pure graphic nature of its violence alone was almost too much for the Japanes censors in 1998". Which gave Bebop a rough start. Which other anime had such an influence to become a genre on its own without imitating or having a feel of another?

Legendary Sci-Fi-this one isn't difficult either because Cowboy Bebop is based in the future and this future may be possible. It's on a futuristic front in which its technological advances we can only dream of. Giving one who is interested in science and technology aspiration to create such wonders and make them possible for us. Laying out ideas of what tomorrow holds and how we may live in outer space. The futuristic themes on this series was astounding. The way humans lived on planets with walls creating some sort of generated ecosystem that produced an atmosphere. That was awesome.

Hence I believe this self generated genre known as Cowboy Bebop should be listed as one of the Legendary. The music alone from each episode or session was outstanding. It did the anime wonders with the colaboration of the songs. I dare to say this short anime should be considered by you all. I nominate this entire session for I was always having one. I just hope that the creators of Cowboy Bebop get together and make the anime of the past of Vicious, Spike and the rest of the Bebop crew with great detail to make it an even greater series than what it already truly is....

CB is so freaking cool. I'd create a whole new genre to it under "Legendary Anime with Kickass Music".
I'd disagree with the drama, but it is still a high quality sci-fi action, character driven anime.
