I still have yet to see Steins gate though.I will be ordering it off amazon today to watch it.


Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is a masterpiece. So is One Piece, Cowboy Bebop, Grave of the Fireflies, etc.

To be honest, I thought Steins;Gate was kind of overrated. I didn't even know After Story was number one, so I am a little glad to hear it was number one for a long time, because I loved that show.

Always wanted to watch clannad but im having trouble starting on a long anime. I assume i have to watch season one before "Clannad after story" right? Maybe when the winter holiday start i will do a whole clannad marathon.

I thought SG was very good. I wouldn't put it above After Story & personally I'd put Eureka Seven up there. Also, A Certain Magical Index.

Yeah, I don't trust MAL in terms of ratings, not that I consider ANN's to be the best either.

But I'm kinda surprised people love Gintama so much since a chunk of their jokes rely too much on referencing Japanese popculture that I'm pretty sure a lot of watchers won't fully understand.

You cant really compare Steins Gate with Clannad after story though since they are two completely different genres.
After story is an amazing drama whilst Steins Gate is a really good sci-fi.
If I really had to say which I enjoyed more though it would still be After story.(They're close though)

This is a joke right. SAO is barely in the top 500 and is likely to rapidly fall from there. And deservedly so, that show is average at best.

MAL ratings are normally fairly good, so long as you take the following into account:
- Anything with more than ~26 episodes is overrated due to a problem with the way the scores are calculated. The more episodes a series has, the more inflated its rating is. This is why Gintama is near the top.
- Sequels to shows are also overrated due to the fact that normally only fans of the first series will watch the second. The more sequels a show has, the more overrated that sequel will be. You can see that with Natsume Yuujinchou. Series 1 is 75th while series 4 is 12th.

So basically if you exclude sequels and series that air for more than 6 months then MAL ratings are probably the best out there.

If you weren't to do those exclusions though, then ANN would probably be better. Crunchyroll's ratings are by far the worst out there. Everyone seems to just give a 5/5 if they liked it, even if they would honestly only give it a 3/5.

Sword Art Online is currently ranked at 492.. I don't see how that lame anime might possibly take the number 1 spot

Robotic Notes has some links to Steins Gate .Unlike SG it continued and is getting so good.When SG 2 comes out if it goes like RN it could get more interest.I am just saying Robotic Notes was so slow to start but now awesome I think the same can happen to Steins Gate.
