This is a list of classic anime, that I believe make anime popular
Dragon Ball Z
I have to say Dragon Ball is one of the most influential anime on its genre (shonen). Its mindless fighting and its flashing colors, make anybody get hype up for the next episode. A must see for new anime fans, that like mindless action
Trigun is about a man named Vash the Stampede and the two insurance employees who follow him around in order to minimize the damages inevitably caused by his appearance
An classic gunslinger anime. It have great voice acting, great story and great characters. A must see for new anime fans
Gundam Wing plot is centers around a war between Earth and its colonies in SPACE!!
One of the best Mecha show around. If you like giant robot fighting, you'll like this and any other Gundam show
Cowboy Bebop follows the misadventures and tragedies of a group of bounty hunters, traveling on their spaceship, the Bebop.
Cowboy Bebop is Cowboy Bebop what else I need to say.
Akira is set in a futuristic and post-war city, Neo-Tokyo, in 2019.
I don't really like Akira, but is still a must see if you are an anime fan
This is what I think that make anime popular. What is your Milestone list?
