As the title asked, I was wanting to know which Anime has left the biggest impact on you. For some it may be their favorite but I am curious which one it is and why. For me it would have to be Gurren Lagann. It isn't my favorite, but it is definitely in my top 10.

It might be because Gurren Lagann was the 3rd (I'm pretty sure) Anime that I watched and it really hit me right in the feels while watching it. Plus, the story was really great and I felt sorry for almost all of the characters and just really enjoyed the series. It definitely left an impact on me that I don't think will be beaten any time soon.

So which one do you feel like it left the biggest impact and why?

Not even going to lie, Dusk Maiden of Amnesia had the biggest impact on me...I totally cried at the season finale. I haven't cried during a movie or show in so many years. I'm typically a cold hearted asshole when it comes to feels but this show broke through my ice encrusted soul and filled it when dem feels. *sigh* It was a great anime and it grew every episode.

There wasn't an episode where I was like...."I'm about to skip ahead because I'm bored" or "What the hell is going on?, Eff this". The characters, the plot, the development, the use of the school building exceeded that of just a regular boring japanese schoolhouse, and so much more. I had to almost binge watch this because I was that anxious for the next episode every ending lol. There were multiple episodes where I genuinely felt for Yuuko and when I saw the one where it showed her "story"...just wow. Everything was executed so precise and well, there were no plot holes that I found.

I'm not typically one for romantic anime but it was funny, "paranormal", suspenseful, cute, romantic, and just all around good. I say it's a must watch to see how you react to it but to see how pulled into the show you get. It's a must-see imo.

For me it was Ranma 1/2. it was the first one that I found truly funny and I wasn't completely bewildered by the goings on. But after Ranma 1/2 and the manga of Maison Ikkoku I drifted away from anime. It was not till Vandread that I came back to anime for good. These were the big impacts as far as getting into anime. But the three with the biggest emotional impact have to be: Clannad After Story, Angel Beats and Anohana. All three of those made me cry. Fortunately it was silent tears, but tears none the less.


Edit: Just realized I said 2 anime and listed 3. Corrected that.

Angel Beats and School Days both had the biggest impact. Angel Beats stole my heart. School Days ripped it in half.

Probably sword art online, but not for the same reason as most people. I acknowledge that Sao is complete shit, but some of the scenes really hit me, that's all.

But then again, those supposedly ''sad'' anime's had no effect on me, so the source of the majority of impact didn't do much

A tale of melodies and Angel Beats. Two of my favourite animes.

What really had an impact on me was the perfect mix between story, music, characters personalities and art style.
There are very few animes that are able to nail that down, for me at least.

This is 100% serious:

After watching Himegoto...

I was a changed man...

I can't look at anime characters the same anymore...

Every character can be a trap.

No character is safe



Believe it or not, I am being very serious.

Masterpieces.



If someone asked me what's the pinnacle of anime, I would say those two anime because for me anime isn't just about storytelling... it's about... using animation effects to evoke emotions, combined with expert vocal acting and musical scores. And those two anime excel in all of them...

The original Full Metal Alchemist.

It handled subjects about life and death very eloquently, and about working for something. It talked of the cycles of how the world works, and it was filled with so much hope and sadness. It's one of the easiest titles to pull quotes from, and almost every one was good. It didn't hold back its punches, without changing its tone.

For something to be gained, something must be lost. For every action, there's a reaction. If you want something, you must work for it. In order to make a possibility realized, you must realize you will have to turn your back to other possibilities. Nothing comes without some sort of price.. But it's all ok. The world is vast and we're just a tiny part of it, (and yet, even so, we're a reflection of it, and we as this tiny insignificant piece, contain the whole of the universe inside us, just on a much smaller scale). The world will go on without us, but we still impact it. Even in death, nothing is ever wasted, and it will continue on, and what we do will be forever a part of it. Mortality is price for life, and though it seems a heavy price to pay, it's necessary for the world to be able to move on. We have to accept that, and when you consider all that the rest. all that life means, and all that the world that is forever mutable represents, it's actually quite a small price after all.

The second anime series to impress upon me that much is Kino no Tabi, though the light novels impress upon me much much more. In many ways for reasons that are similar.
