Wow. Ive become nostalgic.
It has occurred to me that I have not posted a top ten list! But thats because I was a n00b back then (a year ago)&ah, if only to watch these titles over again... Though I sorely believe that I have not seen enough anime to artfully construct a top ten: heres what I got so far:

1. Hana Yori Dango (the series)
2. X (the series)
3. Vampire Hunter D: Blood Lust (movie)
4. KareKano (series)
5. Fruits Basket (series)
6. Brother Dear Brother (series)
7. Revolutionary Girl Utena (series)
8. Perfect Blue (movie)
9. Kodomo no Omocha (series)
10. Super Gals (series)

I guess I'm a little late but here's mine:
Not in any particular order

1.) Fushigi Yuugi
2.) Hana Yori Dango
3.) Marmalade Boy
4.) Pretear
5.) Fruits Basket
6.) Kino's Journey
7.) Scrapped Princess
8.) Ashiteruze Baby
9.) Sailor Moon (Sorry it was my gate way and I'll stand behind it firmly.)
10.) Princess Nine

(of course in that list somewhere should be Ranma 1/2 and Inuyasha but I officially renounced support of Rumiko Takahashi cause she's a filthy ^&$^!( !*&^@)( !%$%^!@ )($@)^&!%*@) !^(#!^*# that won't end her animes properly. ^^)
post #184  on December 28, 2004 - 11:51 PM PST  
OK, I said I'd do this at some point.

1. Haibane Renmei (series)
2. Tenchi Muyo (OVA)
3. Azumanga Daioh (series)
4. Cardcaptor Sakura (the WORKS especially The Movie 2)
5. Maria-sama ga Miteru (series)
6. A Little Snow Fairy Sugar (series)
7. My Neighbor Totoro
8. Ai Yori Aoshi (complete)
9. Onegai Teacher (series)
10. Brother Dear Brother (series)

I can't believe everything that didn't make it on here.... Akira, Metropolis, Kiki's Delivery Service, Ghost In the Shell movie, Perfect Blue, Ah My Goddess, Pretear, Cowboy Bebop, Maison Ikkoku, Escaflowne ... all great but didn't utterly steal my heart ... and EVA and Mahoromatic, which did, and then stepped on it.

It's really a list of Must See These Before You Croak But Once You See Them You'll Want To Live...

Thank you Afleming and Nlee for the shout out! You guys know I love you right. ^_^
I'm sooo hard to buy anime for now because the rest of my family (besides my brother) is not into it and so they don't keep track or ask about my already existing collection. In fact my sister detests anime. (My mom likes Boys over Flowers and Marmalade Boy though)
My parents got me Grave of the Fireflies with a receipt just in case I had it already. My sister refuses to buy me anime because she hates it so and my brother got me a flashlight from the 99 cent store because he thinks he's funny. ^_^ My boyfriend got me twelve kingdoms volume 8--which I'm excited about watching but I haven't seen volume seven and I can't freakin find it anywhere!!!

Afleming thank you!!!!!!
I've narrowed my choices down and now I'm debating on the few left! I'mma need a few more days. >_<
PS: yours is just about ready to be sent. ^_^

It probably a little late to reply to this but heres my top ten MUST SEE:

Neon Genesis Evangelion (I cant stress this one enough)
Princess Mononoke (any Miyazaki is great, tho)
Fullmetal Alchemist (not out yet, but check it on adultswim)
Wolf's Rain (I know, I'm a sucker for adultswim anime)
InuYasha (gotta love dogboy half demons)
Samurai X (Rurouni Kenshin is good too)
X (the series mostly but check out the movie too)
Cardcaptor Sakura (girly and kiddy but super entertaining)
Vision of Escaflowne (except for the ending, this is great)
Fruits Basket (sappy, sweet yet irresistible)

It's never too late to post your top ten and I'm not just saying that because my name is under "topic by"--I'm saying it from the bottom of my otaku heart. Never too late.

and for fun Ill list my favorite character from each series

Still the same
Kimagure Orange Road - Madoka
Ranma 1/2 - Ranma
Azumanga Daioh - Osaka
Fruits Basket - Kyo
Mahoujin Guruguru - Kukuri
Rahxephon - Ayato
Banner/Crest of the Stars - Lafiel

New to the list

post #197  on May 12, 2007 - 8:56 AM PDT  
I had:
Vision of Escaflowne
Princess Mononoke
Haibane Renmei
Fruits Basket
Ah, My Goddess Movie
Samurai X Trust & Betrayal
Battle Athletes Victory
Revolutionary Girl Utena

I guess at this point I might take Escaflowne, SuperGALS, and Utena out, and replace them from three from the following, but I'm not certain.

Gankutsuou, Princess Tutu, Kemonozume and Mushi-shi. Oh, and maybe Black Lagoon, just for fun.
post #198  on May 16, 2007 - 7:46 AM PDT  
Hmm... this is fun.

My old list:

A Vision of Escaflowne
X the series
Rurouni Kenshin OVA
Fruits Basket
Cowboy Bebop

I still think it's a good list. But I might remove Trigun. I'd add Gankutsuou and Samurai Champloo. Then there's Ouran also. Wait, I need to think about this. Limiting it to ten would be hard now. Depends on whether we want to stick to the "classics".
post #199  on May 16, 2007 - 10:01 AM PDT  
Oh, yeah, Ouran I forgot! Listen, if Fruits Basket had never been produced I'd pick Ouran for sure....
