Top 20 Essential Anime

Serdar Yegulalp writes: "Here's a list of anime — both shows and movies — that make up the "core curriculum" for an anime watcher. Some are newer than others, some long-running while others only lasted a few episodes ... but all are crucial in some way, and all are a terrific viewing experience."

Clannad. Steins;Gate. Guilty Crown. Fate Stay/Night and Zero. Nichijou. Nichibros. Toradora. Nodame Cantabile. Natsume. Penguindrum. Gosick. FLCL. I can just go on.

EDIT: I missed Madoka even though that's my avatar!

Guilty Crown... really?

ExCest1453d ago

I liked the show a lot. I can see why people were disappointed but the intense feeling of emptiness was actually enjoyable. It was a while since I had such an intense feeling (good or bad) from watching anime.

I love this post! Let me add some more that are worth checking out:

GTO
Gurren Lagann
Claymore
X'amd Lost Memories
Bubblegum Crisis
Escaflowne

To the List above:

Add
1) Gundam Wing (my fav of all the Gundam)
2) G-Force Guardians of Space (I am biased because of Nostalgia)
3) Voltron.

Again, all of the above were amongst my childhood Saturday Morning lineup so I am biased towards them.

The show was way too hyped for me, but to each his own. Anywhoo I like the majority of those anime you listed.

Man I find these lists pointless. It's down to personal tastes at the end of the day.

Madoka was a massive surprise for me. I'm not a 'magical girl' anime person but I couldn't ignore the hype so gave it a watch. Great anime in my opinion.

Really?
Naruto over Evangelion and Ghost in the Shell?

I just seen that Neon Alley was adding Berserk at the end of this month, It looks good, definitely checking it out. Also just started watching Blue Exorcist, first episode was good, looking forward to the next one.

DEATHxTHExKIDx1453d ago

Spirited away should be higher on the list.
