For me it depends on the genre I feel like watching. But Record of Lodoss War always will be a hit because of the story, the art, and the whole medieval feel. Key: The Metal Idol is an often overlooked story set in the near future that makes for a suprizingly good suspense series. Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star go back and forth for wild west style action. Though Trigun isn't bad. Noir barely gets edged out in the "realistic style gunplay" arena by Gunsmith Cats. That show is just too good. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex definately takes the futuristic action crown, good story, well developed characters, and excellent art. I haven't seen a mecha anime that I really would place as one of my favorites. I've seen all of Eva and was majorly not impressed. I've also seen a bit of Macross, Gundam, and was a fan of Robotech and Voltron when I was a kid. For the silly/cute series, I have to place Chobits.


In the end though, Record of Lodoss War gets the crown, with Key being a runner up.

Ghost in the Shell TV... amazing visuals... intricate subplot... intriguing, imaginative, and forward-thinking stories... amazing action sequences... suspense, drama, etc.

Right now, it's the best of what's out there... bar-none. Hey, how come there are no Gundam series on the list?? Plus, I'm guessing you're lumping all Macross series together despite how different they really are... whutsupwitdat??

I'm sure it's blasphemy to say "Cowboy Bebop" in front of you hardcore anime-niacs, but that won't stop me. Great music, visuals, story. If only it were longer...

how about "Undecided" or "I don't know" for non-anime fans who want to see what's good? :)

Where's the option for "Super Ultra H0t Tentacle Sex0r Vol 12" and "Dragon Ball Z"?

It's not blasphemy... Bebop was going to be my choice but GitS just plain outdoes it for me.

Whoa...way too many choice...yet at the same time, not enough.

Instead of having everyone vote for their favorites...in a poll...you should just have everyone post their favorite anime series.

You missed out DBZ and Kenshin. I know DBZ is cheesy as hell but it is still an excellent anime. Kenshin flat out rocks.

Oh yea...I didn't even notice it wasn't on the list. How could you miss KENSHIN! It's such a badass anime...so good.

I like Rurouni Kenshin, but I'll put evangelion because you didn't put kenshin as a choice.

I am pissed that there is not a generic choice of, "hentai".
