I voted for One Piece. I would vote for D. Gray-Man or Gintama (IF IT WAS THERE... T_T) but i know a lot of fanboys are gonna vote for Naruto so I rather help One Piece beat Naruto than let em' Naruto fans get all the attention.

chadwarden1687d ago

you're making it sound like one piece fans are angels. A lot of them are just as ruthless as naruto fans from what I've experienced.

Ranma11687d ago (Edited 1687d ago )


"you're making it sound like one piece fans are angels"

no one is doing that, as good as naruto is. its a well known fact that one piece is better than naruto.

i have not come a single person who disagrees with that, with a good reason

nepdyse1687d ago

@Ranma1 No one piece ISN'T better, its all Subjective.

Baka-akaB1687d ago

One piece is easily better as an anime actually . For starters many of it's fillers dont suck and arent as horribly pace as the likes of Naruto and bleach .

And bare a few key eps where they blow their budget in Naruto , OP is better done overall

rezzah1687d ago


You just proved why it is always down to subjectivity.

Opinions, no matter what you say (Ranma1, #1.1.2), are not facts.

iChii1687d ago

@Chad: I know One Piece fans aren't angels either BUT I prefer One Piece over naruto ANYDAY. Sure One Piece is waay overrated but at least it didn't have a two year time skip that makes Luffy a fucking unstoppable beast with infinite chakra, Sage mode plus a nine tailed beast inside him which is even stronger than the 4th Hokage. Luffy still has a long way to go, after all he just learned Haki.

JohnnyMann4201686d ago (Edited 1686d ago )

I'm a Naruto fan, but I am hardly ruthless. I am an oldie Manga reader (35) and I just think the story is all around great and so is the art. I was a DBZ fan growing up and while it was hard to admit, Naruto totally eclipses DBZ in story, fights, etc.

As far as Naruto having way too fast story progression, they are on #575 and Kishimoto is ending the series soon... why wouldn't he become strong. It's better than having an entire season dedicated to chasing a chimp around a small planet (DBZ).

One piece ain't so bad either. I am surprised noone mentioned Samurai Champloo.

1. HoTD
2. Blue Exorcist
3. c3 Cube
4. Kore wa zombie?
5. sora no otonoshi
6. One Piece
7. Hellsing Ultimate
those are my top favorites
p.s to those that love naruto and bleach just give up on those shows like i did , they always turn to fillers once they start to get serious into the plot

Simon_Brezhnev1687d ago

You do know Blue Exorcist turned into a filler around episode 15. Once it did i dropped it. Only way for them to continue if they do like a FMA: Brotherhood.

b163o11687d ago

Just finished HotD, good sh*t. Did they ever do a second season?


yea i know simon , it was way to early for this amazing series to be put in motion but oh well at least it ended in a good way i supposed, since i never read the manga so i was pleased to what i saw. had i've read the manga like soul eater then i would be pissed off like a girl finding out her best friend stole her boyfriend and having my period.

Ranma11687d ago (Edited 1687d ago )

Wow, i have nit heard of any of thise anime except first 2.

You seem to like unpopular anime

Death Note & One Piece>All, and Evangelion is just over rated and doesnt even make sense.

I am assuming you are female?

p.s sailor moon sucks major a**, when i was a kid i was interested in car captors though

mamotte1687d ago

You need to see more unpopular anime, and less commercial anime.

tarbis1687d ago

Actually, I'm a guy. Some of the animes I listed are mix of mainstream and non-mainstream.
Sailormoon was ok. But Card Captor Sakura is the best. If you're interested in CCS. You might like some of Clamp's works. I can recommend some of these that I already watched.
Magic Knight Rayearth
Tokyo Babylon
Clamp School Detectives
Angelic Layer
Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle

anybody that puts K-On and Bubblegum Crisis on any type of Top List about best anime can't be trusted. Period. XD

But Evangelion, Haruhi, The girl who leapt through time, Castle in the Sky and Princess Mononoke are nice choices though.
----------------------------- -------

edit: Anyway, let me illuminate the minds of you kids with some really great anime because it's obvious some of you are in need. lol

Godlike anime:

Ghost in the Shell: SAC (sci-fi, action, drama)
Akira (movie)
Berserk (medieval, action, drama)
Toradora! (comedy, romance)
Madoka (sick stuff)
Durarara!! (slice of life, comedy, supernatural)
Rumbling Hearts (tragedy, drama, romance)
Darker than Black (sci-fi, action, mystery)
Cowboy Bebop (space-cowboy, sci-fi, action)
Rahxephon (psycological, drama, mecha)*
Evangelion (psycological, drama, mecha)*
Code Geass (psycological, drama, mecha)*
Zeta Gundam (real robot, military, drama)
Gurren Lagann (super robot, action)
Perfect Blue (movie)
Elfen Lied (guro, horror, drama)
Saikano (psychological, action, romance)
Hellsing Ultimate (horror, action)
Grave of the Fireflies (Movie)
Samurai X: Betrayal (meiji era, action, drama)
Chobits (comedy, romance, sci-fi)
Slam Dunk (sports)
Paprika (Movie)

These are unique and pretty decent (for some even amazing):

Genocyber (sci-fi, extreme graphic violence)
Dokuro-Chan (comedy, extreme graphic violence)
School Days (romance, extreme graphic violence)
Queen's Blade (action, extreme fan service)
Toaru Majutsu no Index (supernatural, action, comedy)
Zero no Tsukaima (magic, comedy, drama)

And yes, as you can already tell I like drama, violence and psycological stuff that deals with existentialism. And even better if it all comes in one nice package like Zeta Gundam. But I still watch crap like One Piece, Naruto, Fairy Tail and Hitman Reborn(read) because I can turn off my brain and have fun seeing the action. =p

tarbis1687d ago

That goes to show that I can watch any type of anime and is broad minded.
Can you really trust someone who idolizes an emotional mess like Amuro?

mamotte1687d ago

It all comes to tastes. I'll agree with some of the animes you posted, but there's a lot of room for pure comedy, romance, and my favorite genre: Slice of life.

btw, how come that you like Durarara but no Baccano!? Most of the people get to Durarara because of it.

BubloZX1687d ago (Edited 1687d ago )

As long as Dragonball Z is in the top 5. throw in Ranma 1/2, Desert Punk, and Cowboy bebop and leave Naruto out and this list can be whatever it wants.

Main_Street_Saint1687d ago

Hmmmm my favorite anime.....
Lets see:

1. Cowboy Beebop
2. Gun X Sword
3. Rebuild Evangelion (qualities of which are quite different than its TV predecessor)
4. Death Note
5. Lupin the 3rd
6. Tenchi Muyo (The OVA's and Universe ('In tokyo' can climb up a tall tower and fall to its death))
7. Outlaw Star
8. Ranma 1/2
9. El Hazard
10. Mermaid Forest
11. Maison Ikkoku
12. Inuyasha

Simon_Brezhnev1687d ago

YOu have a damn good list since you put Lupin 3rd. My all time favorite is Hokuto No Ken the rest are pretty much tied. Anime is so diverse you have to do it by categories IMO.

b163o11687d ago

Lupin the 3rd....Kudos!!

GameGuy1687d ago

I like Tenchi muyo, Death Note, Bleach, and Ultimate Muscle, and Dragon Ball.

mamotte1687d ago (Edited 1687d ago )

ok, this will be a fight between nostalgia and my bad memory. My list, in some kind of order:

Usagi Drop
5 centimeters per second
Toki Wo Kakeru Shoujo
Dennou Coil
Cross Game
Suzumiya Haruhi No Yuutsu (2nd season was... boring. endless eight... wtf?)
Lucky star
Shingetsutan Tsukihime
Madoka Magica
Tiger & Bunny
One Outs
Lyrical Nanoha A's
Ichigo Mashimaro
Irya no Sora, UFO no Natsu
Hanbun no tsuki ga noboru sora

I'm pretty sure I forgot a lot, but that's how life is.
