What are your favorite original animations?
Posted 4/19/14 , edited 4/19/14
Guess I didn't really say my favorite. FLCL or Eva are. I never researched into Paranoia Agent being one or not, but with another listing it I assume so and it would definitely be one of mine (<3 Satoshi Kon before I even knew him).

I wonder if you could consider Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha as "original" since it was a spin-off, but the only thing that wasn't original was the Takamachi family.

I wonder if there is any other anime spin-off that has so greatly eclipsed its original. I suspect very few anime fans have heard of the Triangle Heart OVA, much less seen it.

Does Code Geass count? I'm not sure...

Yes, it was an original anime (as many Sunrise productions are).

angel beats!
boku no pico
code geass
ergo proxy
gurren lagann

Kill La Kill: I've recently picked this show up; and it was really confusing at first... I was just like... "WTF is this mess?"... but several episodes later... it starts to get funny, mainly because of Mako Mankanshoku... and I feel like she's the one character who made the show enjoyable for me...

I'm going with Gurren Lagann for this. Fo'sho.

Honorable mentions for Anohana and Angel Beats.

I became aware of it after watching the already mentioned spin-off, if that counts... and erm, there probably are more spin-offs that've become bigger than their originals, I'm sure.

As for favorite -- don't have one. I will mention Gunbuster and Time of Eve as two of my most enjoyed, though.

When it comes to original animations, it's a tie between:

Neon Genesis Evangelion
Kaleido Star
Gurren Lagann
Eden of the East

I've heard of it, but I never watched it.. been curious, but I just never get around to looking it up.
