    IGN's Top 100 Animated TV Series - Anime

    Like This Thread!
    IGN's doing a top 100 list for the best cartoons of all time:

    http://tv.ign.com/top-100-animated-tv-series/index.html

    And they've got some anime shows in there:

    Spoiler:

    95. Fullmetal Alchemist
    90. Afro Samurai
    86. Astro Boy
    78. Dragonball Z
    76. Voltron: Defenders of the Universe
    73. Mobile Suit Gundam Wing
    70. Pokemon (wha?!)
    51. Death Note


    As a lot of comments say on that page, it doesn't really look like a true list; they seem to be basing it on nostalgia more than anything else (Pokemon better than all those shows beneath it? Come on!). But it's nice to see some of these shows get recognized after all this time. It's only halfway done, though. Since this is the Anime Forum, what anime shows do you think will appear in the countdown? Here are my guesses and hopes(I think they're limiting it to anime that appeared on American television):

    Cowboy Bebop (definitely top 10 material)
    FLCL
    Paranoia Agent
    Gurren Lagann
    Bleach
    Naruto
    Code Geass
    Trigun
    Outlaw Star (not really groundbreaking, but it's got some certain elements that may get it a spot on the list)
    Evangelion
    Speed Racer
    Any other Gundam series (Seed, 00) if they're not limiting it all to Wing

    There's more I'm thinking of, but I'm keeping it short.
    Oh, hai, Adult Swim.

    I seriously doubt it but it would be cool if Yu Yu Hakusho or Kenshin were in the top 50. Not that I really agree with or care that much about these top 100 lists that pop up from time to time.

    A list of all animated series probably won't include the best anime, but instead the most popular among American animation watchers. But here are my hopes anyway:

    1. Cowboy Bebop
    2. Neon Genesis Evangelion
    3. Samurai Champloo
    4. Gurren Lagann
    5. Code Geass

    FLCL technically isn't a series, and they already have Fullmetal Alchemist on there, so that's my list.

    I agree, but seeing how an IGN editor gave one of the YYH sets a score of a 5/10, in his review of it, I highly doubt that they think highly of that show.

    Seriously, though, YYH will always be a top anime title for me. Its one of my favorite shounen, and one of my favorite shows, in general.

    I also really like Rurouni Kenshin, but I was just disappointed with its last season, which was full of filler. The Kyoto arc was epic, though, and as far as the manga goes, its my 2nd favorite read.

    It's nice to see that Fullmetal Alchemist is on there.

    Nothing gets crossed out

    Gasp.W here is Sailor Moon?

    But seriously, Kenshin belongs on that list. It wasn't ever as popular as a DBZ or whatever but it was an excellent anime. Even the filler was pretty good. Well some of it.

    That list is already full of fail but Evangelion and Bebop should be high, in the top twenty I guess.
