One Piece was once in my top 5 not that long ago, but it's really fading FAST. The Fishman arc was weak and now they seem to be transitioning into this Big Mam storyline which seems even weaker. I've already fallen like 6 months behind the current story and find it difficult to continue.

If I had to call a top 5 right now it would be:

Hunter X Hunter
Kyosougiga
Gintama
Black Lagoon
Puella Magi Madoka Magica.


Big mam storyline? Have you been keeping up with One Piece? Big mam has only been mentioned, there is no such thing as an storyline or arc about her. Also the current arc ( Dressrosa ) is freaking crazy right now! It's on par with the marineford to be honest.

Greatest anime of all time? No. There is no "Greatest anime of all time" but if you ask me greatest shounen then yeah it fits that spot pretty well.

Of course "The Greatest Anime of All Time" is very biased and it's just up to opinion,
but you can still objectively look at different anime and compare all their assets. Like animation, soundtrack, voice acting, editing, etc.
In these ways you can sort of compare one show to another.

You know, I understand that people have varying tastes and opinions, and I know Hunter X Hunter is a great anime, but to just blatantly disrespect DBZ and One Piece and say Hunter x Hunter is waaaay better like your opinion is fact is just wrong. One Piece has plenty of deep, emotional arcs and DBZ IMO has the best action out of any anime. I feel a lot of people are willing to just dismiss anything from the shonen genre as complete crap.

No, it's the greatest anime for YOU.
Just like when i see people claiming this for PMMM; it sorta kills me inside little by little. Purely subjective.



This is Basically my reply to the OP. Possibly one of, if not in the top 3, highly executed shounen series I have been able to witness (a High list at that), so of course it deserves a top spot, but remotely calling anything the greatest is one of the most ignorant statements to ever utter and diminishes the existence of subjectivity.

HxH is magnificent, each arc has been compounding upon each other and further to make the series phenomenal, but please do not start attaching that horrible be phrase of "best/greatest/ show ever" (Basically reducing the show to "gave me the biggest anime boner ever") next to it, it only opens doors to bashing its fandom which entirely pisses me off as I am a part of it.


Saying that an anime deserves a "top spot" in the discussion of all time great animes is the exact same thing as asking if an anime should be in the discussion for "Greatest Anime of All Time".

You talk about denying subjectivity (which I never did) but then proceed to say "Of Course" it deserves a top spot. I asked a question about it's greatness and where people think it should place. You make a statement that concretely defines its place with no questions asked. And then attack me saying I'm making ignorant statements and denying subjectivity?

I think it's a bit hypocritical of you to so adamantly defend subjectivity (when it's not even being attacked) and then make a statement that denies the possibility of varying views. What if someone else doesn't believe it even deserves a top spot? What if they think it's one of the bottom 3 when it comes to execution? I also think the boner thing is ridiculous, especially in light of your own statement that it's in the top three best executed and deserves a top spot. Because since you're stating the exact same thing that I'm asking, you're basically saying that the other 2 in your top 3, and whoever else lands in your "top spots" are basically reducing all of those animes to "They gave me a bunch of anime boners."

How about, you just really enjoyed those animes and consider them all time greats? Just like I really enjoy Hunter X Hunter, consider it my favorite and think it should be in the discussion for the all time great. There's no need to be obnoxious and insulting.

Especially when you're doing the exact same thing. Just with more animes.

No, I said I was about 6 months or so behind where it is currently. I don't think "Big Mam" is the official name of the arc. I'm just calling it that. But, there was clearly a Big Mam. She's ultra huge and fat and loves candy and was blackmailing the people at Fishman island for candy for her protection.


On aside, I don't know what Dressrosa is, but if it's as good as Marineford, I guess I better catch up and watch it.

LOL out of all the replies you have you pick mine. Sigh, well I will respond to each point as fast as possible;
First GoldStar statement is what I considered my fast reply would be, and then I elaborated on it.

Second Sorry I did not riddle my reply with "I's" if it wasn't obvious that "deserves" was my I, also since when does A top spot mean NUMBER ONE in everything, I said A, as in yes it can get A HIGH RANK with other large bodies of work as a collective unit, due to it being fantastic in its current state. but not the GREATEST which you stated, lending me to believe you think it topples over everything anime made or I guess even including manga and anyone else below has to deal with it since it has no equal in any other view.

Just to clarify when I say execution, I mean in its delivery, no shift from the main story, no segways, just pushing the series futher, and I stated shounen, NOT the whole entire anime world, shounen doesn't tend to have a fast track in executing due to pacing dilemma, so I will reiterate, IN MY, as in MYYYYYYY view, it has a great execution as a shounen, and if it is not in the top 3 for MY execution list is some where close to it.
Surprised my comment was the most "insulting" to you that attained your reply, but then again it is all subjective isn't it? hahahaahahaha xD

Oh forgot to add last point, doing it with more anime at least promotes a large collectivity of high rank shows, which even as a unit we have to at least applaud, we don't rank JUST one above all others, 3 was a bad number to place, make it roughly 300ish or even higher, basically shows who have attained a massive 9ish out of a 10 scale from over 100,000 raters.

Hunter x Hunter is definitely the best of the shonen anime, but I'm not sure I'd call it the greatest anime ever, of course it is pretty high on the list

Dunno, it's up to the individual. As for the ones saying it's the best shounen out there -- it's not, as nothing is "the best", but again it's up to the individual. If I had to pick, I'd say Gunslinger Girl is "the best" shounen ever with Birdy the Mighty and Evangelion being second "bests", along with many others.

Actually, I can't even choose a "best" title. So nevermind.
