I mean I like watchmojo and everything, but they really shit the bed on this one. Beloved robots didn't even get a passing clip (Getter robo, tetsujin-28 etc.) They also used two macross robots ( I mean one was robotech, but still) and their representative for the gundam franchise was just "mobile suits" Like wtf kind of sense does that make? "Hey everybody, I made a top 10 list about the best fighters in anime, number 10 is "ninjas" from Naruto." It's so stupid, like I get that you can't just pick a gundam to represent the whole franchise (except maybe the original) but you can at least narrow it down to the gundam line. Oh and I've never even seen escaflowne, and even I know it's pronounced esc-ah-flown-eh. Was just watching a portion of a single episode just too hard for them? And speaking of which, what was up with throwing Mazinger aside as simply an honourable mention? I know not everyone can agree on what they like, and I shouldn't expect everyone to hold mazinger in the same regard as I do, but jesus christ, is it too much to ask that they get the damn name right? When they show Mazinger they call it Grendizer. Like are you serious? Why the hell is this crap ok? Oh and of course there was putting voltron at number 1. I mean no disrespect to voltron fans, especially seeing as I am one, but there have been plenty of other mecha shows that got a way better reception, and had an astronomically larger cultural impact than that show. So yeah, sorry for just venting there for a bit. If you like the video, more power to you, but my god, this has got to be my least favourite watchmojo production in a long, long time.

I rarely watch watchmojo for that reason. Anything game or anime related, looks like they just took a quick browse around related titles on the web.

And now they put spike and faye on a list of characters that should get together. Do they even watch a single episode of the stuff they talk about?

Mojo took drubs a while back when it comes to anime...............That's why they are named Mojo.

Rekt........

But yeah, I agree. Mojo has absolutely no logic in their choices, and the votes don't matter at all because not many anime fans watch Mojo tripping decide vote, and Mojo ALWAYS changes the choices anyway to their own bloody bias, leading to rubbish.

The people who run watchmojo I don't think no much about anime. Their top 10 anime openings was appalling as well.

Apparently all of the things they list are chosen through polls and voting. But I don't know who specifically they ask.

They do conduct polls, but they have little (probably no) effect on the outcome. For example in the top 10 mecha poll Voltron was number 5, the gundams were number 2 and Gurren Lagann was number 1. In the actual video Gurren Lagann was number 4, the mobile suits were number 2 and voltron was number 1.

I guess they just decide their own order then and don't pay attention to the polls.
