So you are on a boat in a storm you go over board and wash up on a desert island but as luck would have you have a magical box allowing you a tv and a blu-ray player plus10 series of anime to watch what would you have and why?
*Take into consideration longevity,consistency of decent plot if it has too much filler you didn't like and if it gives you closer at the end of the anime*
Watching you watching me.
Personally I would say the following ten would be my ideal selections:
1. D. Gray-man (Subbed)
2. Bleach (Subbed)
3. Rurouni Kenshin (Subbed)
4. Inuyasha (Subbed)
5. Zero no Tsukaima (Subbed)
6.To Aru Majutsu no Index (Subbed)
7. Prince of Tennis (Subbed)
8, Inazuma Eleven (Subbed)
9, Fullmetal Alchemist (Subbed)
10. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood (Subbed)
I chose all of the above anime which while not all are long, each of them fulfill an interest of mine, being a general lover of anime, I want to watch different sorts, and these ones in particular standout in catch my eyes as they contain many of my desired aspects in anime in different amounts (I made my choices based on the fact that in Inuyasha's and Zero no Tsukaima's situation that would get both them and any standalone tv shows that carries on that 'series' that are already released.
Shifting the paradigm of my thoughts...
These are in no particular order
2-ranma 1/2 (series and films)
3-Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood (series, film and ova)
4-shin chan (American version)
5-Naruto/Shippuden (plus films)
6-Tenchi Muyo (all universes)
7-A Certain Magical index (series and films)
9-Darker than Black
10-Ghost in the Shell (series and films)
See here for my reasons why I chose the following ten shows
I chose Gintama as it is consistently funny and does a lot of stand alone stories so i would get closure,
My next anime was Ranma 1/2 a long running anime the makes martial arts into a circus very funny to the end.
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood was a tough choice between that and the original but i liked the ending more and the homunculus were better portrayed not to mention it had more episodes.
Having only seen the American version i can onlyu put forward this version it was very funny mischievous and the American dubbing to up fine.
Naruto/Shippuden although there was full of filler there was enough decent storyline to make up for this and it would be finished and has loads of episdes to keep me amused.
Tenchi is a fan favorite and has loads of universes retelling this awesome tale.
a certain magical index sees the underdog on top (and everyone loves an underdog
Samurai Chamoloo is the only short anime in my list but it had to be with me and earned the nickname "the kill Bill of anime"
Darker than black lives up to its name loads of action twisted super powers very slick
Ghost in the Shell questions how we see sentient life while kicking butt (there is a reason its a classic.
Watching you watching me.
