final some votes for attack on titan
Thugs will be Die-jo-bu
From my understanding of the rules, all of the seasons would count as a single series. I could be wrong about this. If only the first season of a show counts, I'm going to have to change my "Monogatari" to "Bakemonogatari" instead.
I like my solitude.

*Not sure if these fall under the separate series rule since some things like monogatari are being nominated as one thing and others like FMA and HxH are separate. If separate put me down for Hellsing: Ultimate and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.
**(Just a note for OP: Mononoke the series is not the same thing as Princess Mononoke, the Ghibli movie. Thought I should bring it up because I've seen folks nominating both.)
I decided to leave series that are often cited as peoples' favorites evar (FMAB, HxH, Cowboy Bebop, Steins;Gate, Code Geass, etc.) off the list because I figured they'd make it through nominations without me and I wanted more space for shout-outs. So, if they don't end up making it you can all blame me, I guess.
EDIT: I forgot Seirei no Moribito. So honorable mention.
Edit: Changed Ghost in the Shell to Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.
Some of these cuts were pain.
But here we go, these are my twelve titans.

When you have 13 anime you want to choose, and have to make just one cut, it's pretty damn hard to choose what to cut.
White Album 2
I feel like I should have left out Dog Days, but I can't leave out my second favourite anime, even if I do think it just misses out on my top 12 best.
Building that trap shrine one figure at a time.

So that was actually surprisingly hard. I had 17 shows I wanted to nominate and had to really be harsh to cut the list down... and yet the Digimon show stays. It's a really good Digimon show, guys.
Not nominating any movies even if the rules allow it - it's too hard to judge them fairly against TV shows and OVAs, so I'd rather not.
A question about the rules - are we using Japanese or official english titles? MAL is all Japanese titles all the time of course, but I'm seeing a lot of english titles in the thread already, including in my own post. Some titles (e.g. Paranoia Agent/Mousou Dairinin and From the New World/Shinsekai Yori) are very different, so it might be a good idea to have an official policy to avoid confusion.
Also throwing in a controversial (not) prediction that Madoka will win the whole thing.
