Everyone has their own personal list of the anime you MUST WATCH, and they will defend it to the death. I don't know how closely SungWon Cho—aka the voice actor, YouTuber, and anime fan known as ProZD—protects his own list of favorites, but it doesn't sound like he had much trouble drumming up his personal Top 30 Anime of All Time list.

 

It started with TV anime, so SungWon Cho didn't include any movies in his initial list. Here's how it shook out:
