Anime's that you consider a masterpiece dispite of its contents.
Posted 11/11/08
Akira
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Slayers (Mainly cause I roll dice). :D
As for a hentai title since that seems to be dominating this board I would agree with Discipline record of a crusade and add Sex Demon Queen and Viper GTS.

DBZ, Akira, Ghost in the Shell (movie), Salor Moon (don't like it much but it has its importance in anime history) truly opened the west to anime and influence animation all over the world today!

I think Code Geass was a masterpiece partially BECAUSE of its content.

Anyhoo.

Kokoro Library was a masterpiece, despite having no plot.

I am also highly amused that people are listing hentai as masterpieces. To each his own, I suppose.

Gauche the chellist is really a beautiful animated film and so cute. Definatly a masterpiece. And even more so in the mainstream a film that was released on DVD here in the Uk, the korean anime film "Sky Blue" that took some 7 years to create. It mixes 2-D animation and 3-D settings to create quite a unique visual style. for that reason alone it should be considered one.

The posts on this thread is wrong on many levels

I consider School Days and Elfen Lied good animes despite the content and the fanbase.

Code Geass & Death Note, both of them show extraordinary intelligence and ability of main characters, great contents.
Elfen Lied - first anime that really moved me, shows combination of love, suffering and rage

Ok. Here's my list.

Monster.-Seriously, this anime is a masterpiece because of it's plot, music, characters and everything else.

Toward the Terra- From a 70s manga, so the character's clothes may be oldfashioned, but it's one of the most beautiful anime I have ever seen. Seriously. It does start out a bit slow, but by episode nine, you get hooked.And I've never cried so much while watching an anime.

Simoun.- I am a yaoi fan and all, but Simoun (despite being yuri) is one of my favorite series. The plot is amazing, the characters realistic and wonderful, music is so beautiful and the design of the fighter units is so beautiful. I cried buckets( but not as much as I did with Terra) and hearing the songs brings tears to my eyes. Btw my favorite song- http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=gdxQHxoGskk
Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (and Kai)-there are no words. Twisted, beautiful, amazing.Wished the animation was better tho. But other than that, my favorite anime.
Elfen Lied-got me into gore and eventually into Higurashi and the second (Spirited Away) anime that made be cry.
Petshop of Horrors-the manga was better but the anime was brilliant.
Probably forgot somethin
