I am just curious how people would rank the top 5 anime and why? This is slightly different than just asking for your fave anime. So I hope this justifies a separate posting.

To start with, these are mine:

1.) Hikaro No Igo

It is really brave for a writer to do an anime/manga on something that is so boring on its surface. I am a sucker for anime that rely solely on great story-telling to capture the audience without using violence, or cursing. This is one of the first ones I came across that fall in that category. I remember that the anime actually made me want to learn Igo (though I still suck at it).

2.) Kenshin OVA

Note that I am not referring to the long series but to the very short OVA (Trust and Betrayal) which is such a masterfully told short-story set in the Meijin era. The ending is so dramatic, and the music written was for a long time a regular tune in my car wherever I was driving. The combination of the two earned it a second spot in my top 5.

3.) Natsume Jinjiro

I watched Natsume here on Crunchyroll. You can get the description of the anime here. What was striking about this episode was its warm, summer atmosphere each episode brought out. Each episode felt like a piece of art. Again:No violence, almost no cursing. Just great (in this case episodic) story-telling.

4.) Space Brothers

Like 1.), this anime falls in the "great story-telling without violence category". The anime is still going, so don't know how all of it will turn out...but from what I have seen up till now, in my mind this is a classic. I am a sucker for OSTs and this anime certainly has a very positive, upbeat soundtrack that just perfectly fits the mood.

5.) Sword Art Online

I left a review of this anime on this website. From the premise, to the artistic direction, to the pace of the story, everything was done really well.

So how does your ranking look like?
