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. Psycho-Pass

worst marketing for a anime that is probly one brighter spots of 2012.dep story great animation.

2. K

animation quality outshown out matched an over powered the writing.above average.

3. Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic

so much good it over shadows the bad for me.

4. Medaka Box Abnormal

the last episode earned it on the list alone.

5. The Pet Girl of Sakurasou

ecchi but not overly adult.Good anime about creative people an strugle to be creative.bit more than a high school slice of life.

6. Jormungand: Perfect Order

hopen for 3rd season now cause they took two seasons to set up a good world for stories.character style takes soem getn used to but animation an story are well above average.

7. Blast of Tempest

surprise for me this season.every few week episodes.strong story animation an character design.

8. Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions

way better than i expected.good to great animation with good comedy to slice of life bits .

9. Hellsing Ultimate

Took a bit to get threw 1st episode then it got better.End felt a bit rushed.But over all a over the top uber ultra violent extremely bloody anime.

10. Zettai Karen Children

ended up likeing this way more than planed.Some one either loved 70s archie superhero comics,an marvels xmen future past or this is a self aware parody .either way its fun stuff. an mostly good animation.

Phoned in just a bit.But good enuff to make the list.

Not bad its age shows tho.

14. Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited

Way better than i expected.It built on the other series well an took a difrent path.

15. Patlabor

At times its like watching F Troop with mechs . Creative designs but creative stories as well.THe pilots are as important as the mechs.An at time the animatin for its time is actualy very good.Highly recomend

16. Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure

If you like Tenchi Muyo then this will be above average or better.For every one else your millage may vary but its better than most harem/mecha/high school anime combos.

17. Robotics;Notes

very slow burner but i liked it over all good animation an sevrial twists .above average at least.

18. Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman

This makes it on list because i like the odd style.. or parody that it is.An the wtf moment at the end makes it seemed rushed .

19. Wicked City

very adult .more like men in black with demons instead of aliens but very stylish.

20. Ninja Scroll

bloody adult an highly enjoyable just for the old animation.

21. Patlabor The Mobile Police (OVA)

unlike other ova the animation gets better as the show goes on. it did come 1st before the tv series to so its a bit dfirent but familar. Good stuff

22. 3x3 Eyes

bloody but above average.

bloody feels bit more like indian jones at times meets evil dead. felt rushed at times to.but over all as good as the 1st ova series.

24. Tokyo Crisis: Memories of the Flame

If your a lupin fan this will be good to great. if your not its slightly above average.

25. Burn, Zantetsuken!

poor animation quality at times hinders it. but the usual blend of james bond an pnink panther keeps it above average.

26. Mystery of the Hemingway Papers

animation was better than some of the 90 minute specials i have seen some really nice cut sceen an backgrounds to.decent story as well.well above average.

27. Da Capo of Love: Fujiko's Unlucky Days

plot holes big plot holes but the parody of james bond an the secondary villian for me made up for it.

some serious anime destruction in this one .good to great animation to.

29. The Last Job

good to great animation an pretty decent story .well above average on all counts.

The dective conan universe is a intresting one.Seems child like an theirs alota death an some blood.Good ova series overall.if a fan of case closed its worth a watch.

Light well animated super heroish sci fi ish high school drama comedy mash up.Above average .

32. Martian Successor Nadesico

samweller999 is responsible for this being here after his review i had to check the series out.Not sure if it ment to parody so many space an mech anime an sci fi but it did so very well.Some drop in animation quality here an their but well above average.

33. Akira

Can not belive left it off list for so long. Jaw droping animation even by todays standards.Even if you dont watch or like the story the animation brings it well above average.

34. Bastard!

35. Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Gah cant belive i forgotto ad this one to. animation to story way above expectations.

Second season sorta of Level-E .Animation was good studio Deen stuff. But story was just about average.Some sites have it as a darker turn for Level-E series an um not really .Superheory-ish tho.

37. Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W

Parody of all things lovecraft,gameing ,an anime.Oddly send season kinda needs some 1st season knowledge to understand whats going on. Good animation an decent to good comedy at times.above average .

Started off kinda meh then got good an parody.Decent to great animation with some twists an turns for a comedy rarely used.Highly recomend to rpgers .

39. Joujuu Senjin!! Mushibugyou

Very over the top at times but highly stylised.Not for everyone but shonen fans should like it .

Starts kinda slow an then builds on many arch types an tropes to mech an space anime.Really great animation at times an a good overall plot.

good to awsome animations.Character design an world build is fast an painless.Deep story an well above average.

46. Maoyu

Good animation an deep story.

47. A Certain Scientific Railgun S

Aniamtion if great. Story is a weave pre index then wove into the the story .One could watch this before going int the "A Certian" univers of anime or watch as a stand alone.

48. Appleseed

When it works it works well an when its style an cgi doesnt work it does not work at all.Overall tho above average.

49. Appleseed (OAV)

Own this on dvd its for its time well animated an probly closer to the manga than the movies. Design wise its worth a watch.

50. Tantei Opera Milky Holmes

Don't let looks fool you this is a grand comedy .Not realy aimed at girls as much.They get hit in the face alot. Punched ,splaped with a gloden mask, run into boobs.Gag comedy in the vein of Binbogami ga!.

Wow you have a lot of 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.


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 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.

Marshal Victoryon Oct. 19, 2013 at 12:02 a.m.

@takashichea: Thank you.I apreciate that you think enuff of my opion to check out some of these. Like i said its a average an above.Some would fit your tastes an well some may not.

But i have a new found respect for Patlabor . Just finished movies 1 an 2 an thats the way you do anime movies. Tie into the series. advance the series story as needed.Explain as you go to the new audiance.Very very impressed with it as i was the ovas an tv shows.
