First time I've seen Clannad After Story out of first place since like 3 years. Looks like Steins;Gate's arrival in the U.S was the last push it needed to get to the top, and that is considering that FUN has only released 13 episodes. I know the second half is even better.

I really pay attention to this kind of things, since they are the results of the opinions of all of us who watch Anime.

Will it be #1 for a long time like Clannad was?
Any thoughts?

Whaaaaaat? I don't believe it. It's hard to top After Story. Then again I haven't watched Steins;Gate so I can't really compare.

I need to watch Steins;Gate then, though on a personal level nothing will ever surpass the Clannad series.

Also, this is the first time I've ever heard of a ranking system so even though Clannad dropped I'm happy to hear it was number one for so long!

Well I enjoyed Seins;Gate but I doubt it will stay #1 as long as Clannad did.

Steins Gate is amazing; it deserves the #1 spot.

Well, I did watch both of them, even though both really are amazing in every way, I think FMA: Brotherhood is the best anime ever produced. It is one of my favorites, but not necessarily my favorite one (Evangelion, among others). But I simply cannot deny that it was perfectly executed in every single possible way. I just think it's just a tiny bit higher than Clannad and Steins;Gate.

S;G is great, but I don't see it as highly as everyone else, maybe I'm the only one though.

idk. Steins gate was really good. But i think it will be overrun by Sword Art Online. Eureka 7 will always be my #1 though =P

I simply loved Stein's Gate. By far one of the best I've ever seen. (I'm talking 2 decades worth of anime). It's spot is well deserved, but now I'm going to have to go see Clannad After Story. It's a never ending cycle.

Steins;Gate is awesome, and it's possible that I actually like it more than Clannad. However, I always thought of Clannad as a "masterpiece" of sorts, whereas S;G was just really awesome at what it did. It surprises me that it's "#1," although to put both in the same list and rank them against each other is relatively useless anyway, since they are completely different shows.

But really, sure it passed After Story up as #1 but in the end it's a debatable spot to be in. Not saying it doesn't deserve #1, I didn't think Clannad After Story fully deserved it as well. There's lots of great shows out there and it's a shame most don't get more recognition.

To be honest, whilst I think that ratings provide a good "rule of thumb" as to how good a show is, I don't believe they're accurate in determining if one show is "better" than another.

As a huge Haruhi fan, I am always amazed that "Disappearance of Haruhi Suzimiya" is in the top ten, but the first season isn't.
