What's the greatest anime you've ever seen?

Ghost in the Shell (1995 film), obviously.

  • that is a difficult question.. ghost in the shell is definitely one of them, but i also think cowboy bebop is really good, also tengen toppa gurren lagann, sidonia no kishi and aldnoah zero

    ghost in the shell - because this is arguably the most philosophical anime i have ever watched and continue to watch

    cowboy bebop - because of its very unique approach towards space travel, human over-expansion across the galaxy as well as its story around this concept

    gurren lagann - because of its artstyle and absurd story and characters, the likes i have never before or since in anime history

    sidonia no kishi - because of its very interesting portrayal of humanities last chance of survival inside a seed ship (a seed ship is a ship that is designed to have a very large population that eventually decreases until only 1 survives and was originally theorized to be used to go to planets that would take hundreds of years to reach) as well as its depiction of how the hygg's "god" particle which was very recently discovered by the Large Hadron Collider

    aldnoah zero - because of how smart the main protagonist is and how humanity was portrayed as colonials vs indians except that earthlings are the indians.

    i have yet to see an anime anywhere near as good as ghost in the shell, but i keep hoping :)

  • I would have to say either FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood or Tokyo Ghoul, honestly. Those have the best plots, but the colors and drawings in Ouran High School Host club are plain breathtaking, and the soundtracks for Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler are definite earworms. Danganrompa was just really interesting to watch... it depends what category of 'best' you mean, but if you mean overall, FMAB, definetely.

  • Most things by Studio Ghibli. My favourites are My Neighbour Totoro, Spirited Away and Ponyo. Akira is good and so is Grappler Baki.

    My brother used to have one on VHS called Fear of Imagination, which I liked but I can't remember what it was about. If anyone can find this online then let me know :)

  • Death Note is hands down my favorite anime.
    It is about a teenage boy who finds a supernatural notebook. Anyone whose name is written inside the notebook dies.
    The plot is intense and interesting, the songs are fantastic, and the art is just right. It also has likeable characters that I could relate to on certain levels, and best of all, there is no romance. I can't stand anime that involves romance.

  • Parasyte: the maxim was probably my favourite. Good comedy, good action, gory without being too much, unsettling without being too scary, relatable protagonist and the manga was awesome too.

    • i actually met the producer of parasyte in my school before, he's pretty cool :)

  • My favourite ones are the ones by Miyazaki, especially Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away.

  • Hokuto no Ken (original T. V. series, not the horrible film that tried to chop up an epic saga into a movie runtime, and not the Manga Entertainment bastardization where they omit a lot of storyline and put drum-n-bass music over it).

    ... as my picture suggests.

    • Yeah, I keep forgetting to watch that one...

    • You should, it's still the best anime ever created and it doesn't get old.
      You could also watch "Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone" and the following two movies, which are basically a reboot of the series with some interesting variations.

  • It was actually Baccano.

    But I also like Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood a D Steins;Gate
