So basically every anime in existance is your favorite, huh?

For me, I don't watch much anime and stick to reading manga instead

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
Berserk
Highschool of the Dead
Hajime no Ippo/Fighting Spirit

What I will say though is that Evangelion is the most overrated shit ever that has no idea what it's talking about. Kinda like Xenogears.

Had all of the Jojo's paper copies at one point. Damn good stuff. Crazed how dude can setup such tense/impossible situations.

Yeah ippo is up to manga 100 next release. I'm slightly bothered by the deliberate DBZ milking strategy that we all see going on, but still waiting for the next. Bet the itagaki fight doesn't conclude as is often the case with the volume after the match begins.

This for me too.

Can we talk about manga in here? If so, I think you should change the title to "The Anime and Manga Thread".

Yeah, I absolute love Araki's style and can't get enough of it. I also completely respect how the series is basically devoid of spoilers. It's all action all the time.

I really wish they got around to making animes of the series already. Besides the movie based on Phantom Blood and the severely short OVA on Stardust Crusaders, they haven't had anything on this legendary series. It's a great time to do it with all this shitty moe crap coming out EVERY DAMN SEASON!

I would say some real good shows and movies not already named include:

Angel's Egg
Big Windup(ookiku furikabutte)
Durarara
Eden Of The East(moreso the TV series opposed to the movies)
Eureka Seven
Princess Mononoke
Sky Crawlers

I would also say that among the ones that have been named that Baccano!, Ghost In The Shell SAC Monster, several Gundam series and Texhnolyze are also among my favorites.

With Baccano!, Durarara and Monster in a three way tie for my all time favorite.

@marchefelix, makes sense.
You read any Tsutomu Nihei stuff? Genius.

@Running Wild - wow, that takes me back to the good ol days. Yeah those were some good times.

@baccano1932 - should have put

Durarara
Eden Of The East

on my initial list.

Have Big Windup, but haven't watched it yet - crazily backlogged but think I may peep that one soon.

As for favorites, from the top of my head:


Bakemonogatari

Soul Eater
Cowboy Bebop

Yeah spoilers button works well for this thread.

Have Bakemonogatari as well, need to watch that.

Here goes one of my favorite manga of all time: Kiseijyuu

So damn good and no anime adaptation that I know of :(
If you guys haven't read that, make it so.

As far as anime on my initial list a special one would be Texhnolyze - that's the shizz

Seiya, I have watched as a kid and am still watching as it continues with a new one on air now. The OVA, lost canvas is hell good, currently watching that. The original series is hell brutal and crazed and that used to air on like saturdays during the kiddie shows lol.

Basilisk/Kurozuka, the best ninja ones I can reccomend. Used to read the Basilisk manga as well, so badass. So ninja.

In terms of anime I've watched there's a hell of a lot, anime I've enjoyed is a whole nother story.

No particular order.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes
Hokuto No Ken
Samurai Champloo / Cowboy Bebop
Hunter X Hunter (penultimate shounen anime, though I have yet to watch Rurouni Kenshin)
Golgo 13 (the films, the anime adaptation is a nightmare).
Berserk (one week to go iirc for the OVA!!)

Are the ones that stuck with me (very tired of shounen these days), in terms of manga I've only read Kozure Okami (Lone Wolf and Cub, highly recommended), and Berserk.

Forgot about Samurai Champloo. That was one amazing anime with a fantastic story.
