    I'll vote for One Piece. While the pacing is incredibly slow at points and the character designs can be off putting, I still enjoy the series. It has good writing, fun characters, good action and some really good emotional/dramatic moments. Zatch Bell was fun show from what I remember of it, but I prefer One Piece over it.

    Based on my views on the less-than-20 episodes I've seen of both shows, I'm going with Zatch Bell.

    Batman Beyond easily gets my vote. It's easily one of my favorite shows in the DCAU and it has aged quite well too. Rave Master was fun to watch due to the gag dub it had, but it's not something I'd choose over a great show like Batman Beyond.

    Well, personally, I'm beginning to wonder if that's true. Sure, the plots and storylines have aged well, but we're coming up on it being 20 years since 1999, when Batman Beyond premiered, and the technology predicted is starting to look..silly.

    After going back and watching some of the early episodes recently, we still don't have virtual news anchors:

    And cities still don't look like this:

    And high school's don't have anti-gravity room lacrosse tournaments (I can't find a picture of this, just trust me)...EDIT: Here's a picture of the team in anti-gravity room uniforms:

    [​IMG]

    Granted Batman Beyond is "40 years" into the future, not 20 years, so maybe this technology is just around the corner? ;)

    But that's just the day to day technology, the plots and the conflicts between the characters are still great.

    Anyway...
