None of the Anime you mentioned are original, they are all adapted. Look at my first post and you'll see what I mean.


Coffee Samurai and Paranoia Agent were not manga I don't think, and I thought the manga came after the others I mentioned.

Honestly, there are a ton of original anime, just not many coming out right now. You're almost asking straight what our favorite anime is. Evangelion would probably be my favorite, original or no.

That said, there's another that would be pretty high up there. Mobile Suit Gundam.

Black Rock Shooter
Cowboy Bebop
Darker Than Black
Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Angel Beats!
Noein
Hell Girl
Samurai Champloo

Just the ones I can pull off the top of my head...
I'm sure there's more.

EDIT: Psycho-Pass and Ergo Proxy as well ;D

Wasn't Angel Beats a visual novel first?


It was not.

What about Anime with original stories which came from games?

Like Lilpri
http://www.crunchyroll.com/lilpri

It's not listed but the video game is nothing but a music and rhythm game

For that matter I notice Xenoglossia isn't on there either and it was pretty good, if you can get past the girls are essentially dating giant robots.

It was a fun show but I happened to be a fan of the idols already.

I would have to say that the best original anime for me would have to be Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai.
I didn't cry until the very end but it had a big impact on me and I enjoyed it a lot!
And if you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you watch it soon.
You won't regret it.




I also enjoyed Angel Beats! very much. I'm not finished it with it yet but I enjoy it a lot because it has just the right amount of comedy and seriousness in it. There's never a dull moment and that's what makes it so enjoyable! You just keep wanting to watch it!

Code Geass, Angel Beats, and Puella Magi Madoka Magica...

Does Blood+ can be considered as an original anime or not?? I know it's based on Blood: The Last Vampire... But aside from that, it was not adapt from manga, light novel, etc..


Well, it was still adapted from something, right?

So I would say technically, no it isn't. Given the show's content compared to what it was based on though, then yes it is.

I love the Pretty Cure franchise. Seen every series and counting. There are some seasons I like better than others and the only one I can say was disappointing was Smile but I digress. I'm currently following Dokidoki and I really like it. Toei did a much better job with the characters compared to last season.

For me, it boils down to these three.

Gurren Lagann

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0

Occult Academy.

Sound of the sky.

Darker than black, cos manga came after with it's own storyline.

Gurren Lagann

Evangelion. Though rebuild I think doesn't count so it has to be the tv series.

There's probably more, but I can't think of anymore, cos the rest I know are novels/manga/live action or something else!

I don't think it was.

The anime first aired in April 1998. The first manga chapters were May 1998 and April 1999 respectively.
