hmm let me see..

1. Samurai Champloo

Amazing artwork and an even more amazing soundtrack. Historical Japan with an off-beat twist.

2. Fullmetal Alchemist

Very inspirational bitter-sweet anime.

3. Naruto

Although the most mainstream anime out there, I just have to pay my respect to Kishimoto. I just loved Naruto up to episode 80.

4. Ebichu

Yes, Ebichu. I know, I know, there's absolutely no story to it, just hamster madness. But it's hilarious


Again, madness all the way. genius artwork.

Special Commendation

Cowboy Bebop
Abenobashi Mahou Shotengai

Top 5 of all time? Hmm let me see if I can really recall the hundreds of animes I've seen...

1) Saishuuheiki Kanojo

Probably my favourite as this anime truly touches my heart...

2) Full Metal Panic

I don't really like action anime, however FMP got me hooked with both it's humor and action!!!

3) Aishiteruze Baby!!!

Despite being a shoujo anime, it's a brilliant one. Touching and loving and romantic...

4) Air

Someone said before sad anime leaves a huge and lasting impression, and that's 100% true... at least to me.

5) Suzuka

Hmm... I'm the only one who put Suzuka in the top5!!! Sure the graphics may be a little off, but the good thing about this anime is it's story... and somekind of realism too.

Ahhh, so hard to decide a top5, i could have taken out any of the 3~5 placing and put in Kanon, but decided not to. That said, no anime comes close to Saishuuheiki Kanojo when it comes to the impact on me and change some of my ways of thinking.

Most of you guys need to take an anime history lesson, I think If Bleach, FMA, or Naruto are anywhere near your top five, it means you haven't seen enough anime yet :X

I have seen some of those top rated shows, and most of them by accident, I have been coming to this site for about a year and a half and I never knew that there was a fourm here, and without any direction I have seen some of those.

1. Elfen Lied
2. Air (The ending was so sad.. any anime that makes me that emotional is good)
3. Shuffle! (I liked it more than others did for some reason)
4. Chobits
5. End of Evangelion

My top animes list changes a lot though (as my opinions and animes i have watched change), so I guess this is my temporary list :P

OMG... if i put mself to list, it'll be endless

but if have to choose only 5, i wont be able to do so, since all of them are of equal Memoir value to me.

but there is one distinction among them all.

"Robotech" - yeah the Americanized (macros + southern cross + moto something) Macross version.

that one by far is what inspired me the most of all the Animes i've ever seen.

for its time, it was the only cartoon that has Substance, it was very much like watching Soap Opera but for kids.

Unlike you usual typical old cartoons like erh.. hmm... you know Mikey, and Tweety, Buggs bunny, and definitely Not anything cheezey like Power Ranger, i mean cartoon similar to that like.. hmm.. Voltron? and others that are so plain.

Anyways yeah Robotech is the best IMO

which then open me up to the original Macross / Macross 2 / Macross Plus / Macross 7 / Macross Zero / etc..

and of course the entire universe of Other animes non mecha related

In no particular order (some, i do not know official English title):

Nausicaa Valley of Wind
Laputa Castle in the Sky
Future Boy Conan
Alps no Shoujo Heidi
Dog of Flanders
Kidousenshi Gundam (original 1979 version, and I, II, and III movies)
Uchuu Senkan Yamato (Space Cruiser? sorry, don't know English title)
Galaxy Express 999
Lupin III - The 2nd TV series
Lupin III vs Fukuseiningen
Lupin III Caligostro's Castle
Choujikuu-yousai Macross (including the movie "Ai oboete imasuka")
Kidousenshi Z Gundam
Kidousenshi Gundam ZZ
Kidousenshi Gundam - Char's Counterattack
Kidousenshi Gundam 0083 (including the movie Stardust Memories)
Hotaru no Haka (Graveyard of Fireflies? sorry don't know English title)
Five Star Stories
Haha o tazunete 3000ri
Urusei Yatsura
Maison Ikkoku
Hokuto no Ken
animes made by the late Tezuka Osamu (Ribbon no Kishi, Tetsuwan Atom, etc.)
Ganso, Tensai Bakabon (in many ways a definite Akatsuka Fujio classic)
Doraemon (in many ways, a definite Fujiko F. Fujio classic...I wished he were still alive ToT)
Sazae-san (in many ways, Hasegawa Machiko has lead us Japanese through the years of post-war growth through this national pasttime anime)
Nadia: Secret of Blue Water
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon (R,S,SS included, Stars excluded)
Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z (Toriyama Akira had inspired me since Arare-chan, but DB is what defines my early childhood years in the 1980s, moreso as it continued well into the mid 1990s)
Cardcaptor Sakura (in many ways, it was a very moe- anime)
Voices of a Distant Star (Shinkai Makoto is my current favorite director)
AKIRA (it is very sad nowadays we cannot see such a high quality cel-based motion picture anymore)

other animes are very great in their own respective ways. However in a sense how they have affected me in my life for the past twenty years, these animes stand out personally as a vivid memory of my years.

Wow this guy actually has a clue.

Anyway My list goes:

1. Kidousenshi Zeta Gundam
2. Turn A Gundam
3. Yu Yu Hakusho
4. Tenkuu No Escaflowne
5. Last Exile
6. SDF Macross
7. Giant Robo
8. Space Runaway Ideon
9. Aura Battler Dunbine
10. Tekkaman Blade

Basically anything I can watch several episodes of in a row without getting tired of it I really like.

Well, the best anime that did best money-wise are obviously anime like Pokemon and Dragonball series.

And movies, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Grave of the Fireflies, and last but definitely not least Akira.

1. Gundam Seed - watched the entire series non-stop and that's just something I haven't been able to do with any other anime. GS rules.
2. Vision of Escaflowne - Just can't beat the epic mood of this anime.
3. Madlax - I guess I'm just weird because I really like bee train's style, and Madlax is their best work, I think.
4. Hikaru no Go - Love the game, the fact that such a great anime could be made of it is amazing
5. N.G.Evangelion - Little overrated maybe, but still a classic and nothing boggles the mind quite like it.

Naruto, Bleach - Great stories, battles, and everything, but mainstream. A show must be addictive if it's going to have such massive amounts of episodes. But that a show isn't heading towards any real ending makes it predictable and inconsistent.
Sure, the first 50 or 90 episodes might be nice but the stories reach no conclusions in them. And then the filler starts and everything goes downhill. After them the style completely changes and the series abruptly ends because it lost popularity or the authors wanted to do something else, etc...These kinds of series are nice, but can't really be called masterpieces in their entirety.

In no order (and including a tie):

Honey & Clover
Haibane Renmei
Aishiteru ze Baby

Coming close but not making the list are: Kimi ga Nozumu Eien, Canvas 2, Ai Yori Aoshi, Love Hina, Tenchi Muyo, Air, and Noir. Could make the list soon: NANA, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and Kanon (I have not seen this yet but I hear a lot of great things about it).

1. Kareshi Kanojyo no Jijyo - High school romance/comedy. It does a good job of telling a story about characters just trying to find themselves and be honest with eachother.
2. Hikaru no Go - I loved the character development in this one. The last episodes + special were especially good because you felt like you watched Hikaru grow up.
3. Basara - Pretty moving story with great plots and characters. The two main characters live two different lives where they either love eachother or want revenge against eachother. Sigh... I wish it didn't end after 13 eps.
4. Rurouni Kenshin - It's a good mix of action, romance, comedy... enjoyable without being too serious. Light-hearted and fun without losing too much substance.
5. Fruits Basket - It really does warm the heart. I've watched and re-watched this series more than any other.

Movies: (Yes, I'm a big Ghibli Fan)

1. Mimi o Sumaseba (Whisper of the Heart)
2. Umi ga Kikoeru (I can Hear the Sea)
3. Hoshi no Koe (Voices of a Distant Star)
4. Mononoke-Hime (Princess Mononoke)
5. Nausicaa

Here are some that aren't in my top, but I feel like mentioning:

Read or Die - The three ep series was awesome.
Maizon Ikkoku - One of the first ones I saw... really wacky characters. It's Rumiko Takahashi at her best. Kinda old, but definitely good.
Marmalade Boy - My first... and will thus always have a place in my heart. Back in the days of Tomodachi Anime. Too many love triangles to count.
Slam Dunk - Another fun one... Rukawa is such a hottie... ^^;
Ashita no Nadja - A fairly girlie one... but another heart-warmer.
Cowboy Bebop - It's just good.
Angelic Layer - Amazingly, I think this is the most "normal" Clamp-based anime I've seen...
