marshal_victory: Favorites in no real order.Have to be at least average or above to make the list.This is in no way a list of anime i have completed .Have seen way more than this .These are at least average an above.Your millage may vary.

1. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia

Its color use is artistic extreme .But its overall art is very well done.Good stories so far ( up to 5 now) all shows well above average so far makes list easy.

2. Tenjho Tenge

Animation quality makes up for the long flash backs.Overall its good.Could it be better sure .But doubt we will see the rest of it . the ova help flesh out the series a bit but still ends poorly.

3. Jormungand

Well above average. bit of insane action mixed with some odd comedy.Seasons not over yet an it makes the list so yes its good me thinks.

4. Daughter of Twenty Faces

Animation was pretty decent .But the story was a bit like a pulp fiction story .With many a twist an turn.

5. Sumomomo Momomo

some of the comedy was good. some was creepy their 15 an up but drawn like their 10ish :/

6. Haganai

better than average. with some interesting characters .As well as some nice style.surprised i liked it.

7. Hyōka

slow burner but good animation an dialog.

8. Mayoi Neko Overrun!

cuteness factor made my teeth hurt .but it was above average an had a few funny bits.as well as a few parody bits.

9. Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine

so awesome its making other shows pale in its long stylish shadow.

10. Sadamitsu the Destroyer

think i liked it more for the main voice actors dedication to the role . some costume looked cool to . above average but your mileage may vary.

11. They Are My Noble Masters

above average for your parody combat servant, harem sorta thing.Theirs a few laughs in there if you can find them to.

12. Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero

very ecchi but good.

13. Good Luck Girl!

Some of the best anime parody ever to parody in a anime!

14. Sword Art Online

For the anime mmorpg player.This is great stuff.For every one else it should be good stuff.Story is developing oddly tho.

15. Campione!

Average to pretty good.Show will not make up its mind.God slayer teen romantic comedy drama thing.

16. Mysterious Girlfriend X

Art is retro cool.Stories are cute to weird.But if cant see past drool its not for you.yes i said drool.

17. Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse

It's animation is good.Art style ok.But weird plot pace.Weird mix of sub genes .Dont take it to serious an its pretty good.

18. La storia della Arcana Famiglia

It keeps missing the mark but good enuff to make the list.Try not to watch an want it to go into a direction an it wount go the other way sheesh.

19. Hiiro no Kakera

pretty backgrounds .sloooow story pace.meh story .Just above average.But a few twists that keep it above average.

20. Medaka Box

I liked the 1st season over all. second seems as over the top as the 1st.

21. To Love-Ru

Took me two tries but made it threw. When its funny its great.when its not its not so great.

22. Motto To Love-Ru

better over all than the 1st anime series.I really like how they broke down a show to 3 sub plots.Ecchi went up a few notchs in this series tho.

23. Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade

Not something you watch or want to watch every day. But art to slow plot draw it was good.

24. Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

Funny , lite good comedy.

25. Kamen no Maid Guy

IF.. The Tick was in a anime.. An was a maid guy .. his name would be..Kogarashi .Really insane show worth a watch an a few laughs.

26. Samurai Girls

Ecchi yes.Great plot well ok enuff. Art style tho an animation is something to see at least once.Cell shaded look with alot of texture.Way to much use of ink splats tho.

27. Protecting from the Shadows

Slightly above average with some intresting paradoy of older anime an puns.Basic ninja harem story just like the move the body guard..well not just like but sorta?

28. Utawarerumono Omake

Above average in anime animation style tho is great or meh.Tripy over all animal people an angel people . Just long story with good twists. Hit the right spot for me at least.

29. Towanoquon Part 1

Was pretty good more super heroish than expected.

30. Katanagatari

Animation style took some getn used to .Then it just had so many great looking sceens.Story was way above average. the word exceptional comes to mind.

31. The Ambition of Oda Nobuna

Another alt history gender bender anime.Animation was good to great story way meh to good so it makes the list more for animation .

32. Nisemonogatari

stylish story telling that actualy could be argued as visual art design in school.Layers of design .Well above average.

33. Black Magic M-66

old school soft look anime. Bloody an comical think terminator meets die hard meets cyberpunk anime.

34. MM!

Its more of a parody of harem anime than a anime about preversion.Not something youd start non anime friends with tho.

35. Ben-To

To much like real life .. well not at all really. Good animation decent comedy overall.

36. Library Wars

Animation was good to meh but the story over all was good to great.Some would think its a sily idea for a story but censorship is real in the past,present an sadly the future.

37. Dororon Enma-kun Meeramera

Warning if a taling hat being molested by monkeys offends this is not for you..This is what childrens shows whould be like for adults! It kept geting more odd an strange an parody as it went on.Ecchi kinda pervy probly.. odd yup.Well above average for odd strangeness.

38. Cat Shit One: The Animated Series

Whats not to love?bloody cgi animals shooting each other.Packy is a funny way to spell bugs tho.

39. Betterman

Wow feels like a 70s anime in some respects.Tries to be almsot everything mecha,mutant,horror,sci-fi an almost pulls it all off grandly.Way better than average.IF it wasnt for a deus ex machina here an there it be epic.

40. Dragon Crisis!

ecchi yes decent story tho good animation over all.watched this almost a year ago an forgot to add it.

41. Dance in the Vampire Bund

Average animation because the computer use was bit to easy for me to see.Tho it did use some dynamic angles .It also full of some ichy subtext that some will hate or missunderstand.It wasnt bad bit of a let down at the end.So it just makes the list if only i can say this.. better than Twilight.

42. Break Blade

Broken blade : great animation , great detail good story for a sword mech anime.Good stuff .

43. Ninja Nonsense: The Legend of Shinobu

Ever wonder what a ninja manson was like?What if it had a master like a flying evil happy face? ever wonder where the ninjas from the Tick were trained?Some of those answers are in this series..i laughted a bit to much at this .

44. A Certain Magical Index

sheehs took 9 episodes to get me to really like it.Good long set up for one joke tho.Animation is pretty good .good world building but its slow. Plot gets better as story moves on.

45. A Certain Scientific Railgun

Bit lighter in tone than magic index but good over all. some great animation.

46. A Certain Magical Index II

second season seemed to have a filler here an there but it was good to great over all.Fairly impressed with this series actualy.

47. Godannar

This makes the list only if you can view it as not serious.. almost parody.Um the mechs have boobs that get jiggly!!Least the subs felt more parody .

48. Vandread

suffered a bit from random animation quality drop but was pretty good .

49. Vandread: The Second Stage

had less animation quality drop than 1st season . was pretty good over all. both seasons were heavy cgi for ships an mechs.

50. Code:Breaker

decent to good story.good to decent animation.

Wow you have a lot of these....my favorites list would be shorter but contain some of these. Impressive breadth here to. But cat planet cuties...really? And lord..falling apart at the end doesn't do justice to the train wreck demon king became...gahh...hours of my life I will never get back...

Marshal Victoryon July 6, 2013 at 1:50 p.m.

@zaldar:

its average an above list. as with any opion its subjective. i liked the parody parts of bombshells from the sky ( hate the rename) .This is by no means all the anime i have watched just those at least i would consider worth a look at an above. some i rave about with mispelled praise .Others just get a pass for animation an barely at that.

Funny thing on demon king the ova just acts like the last episode never happend.. like some crazed writer jumped in did a whole rant on pcyological comunisim athest something or other.. an now back to regular ecchi... seriously.The ova just ignores the end .Which may make the ova a better person than me.. err wait.

zaldaron July 6, 2013 at 5 p.m.

@Marshal Victory: Heh....well the end was the reason the show will never make a list of mine...check my list out...it is somewhat torlley but it is what I think...

Marshal Victoryon July 6, 2013 at 7:38 p.m.

@zaldar: Some times for me a ending can ruin the whole thing.But i try to look at anime difrent than movies.Tho a good example of a similar thing would be the Watchman movie. Loved it till the end.Still like it enuff just the end was so easy to undo .Same with Demon King i can hate the end but like the ride to there.It was quality up untill someone or some thing went off the rails.

Also i thought about doing an Non-Favorites list to .Stuff i watched an stoped. But i figure id rather focus on what i feel to be watchable than stuff thats not.Summer 2013 tho season is looking to have alot ill drop tho.

There are a lot of old shows I haven't watched yet. This is a good list for me to bookmark.
