9. Attack on Titan

Good pace for the most part.animation an depth of story an seriousness it takes itself sales it well.Good stuff.

10. Patlabor The Mobile Police: The New Files

They really dont make any tv shows like this any more. Good aniamtion for its a wide varity of stories an themes.Will own on disc some day .

11. Patlabor: The Movie

This is how ou do anime movies!It fits with the series has better animation .An explains things to new comers with out a overdub history lesson.

12. Patlabor: The Movie 2

This is how you do a anime movie an move the story forward.How you can modernize the series an not lose its core flavor.Really good animation in this one .

13. WXIII: Patlabor The Movie 3

THe animation top notch.High detailed bacgrounds. the story is just ok.But where it fails is using the patlabor characters as back ground characters.An lacks the same light heartedness the other movies an tv seires had.

14. Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl

a well animated slice of life harem sorta comedy.With a nice twist ending.well above average in my book.

15. Stolen Lupin - Copy Cat is the Butterfly of Summer

Masterful.Really enjoyed this one.

16. Coppelion

Hue saturation is its worst problem .So a artisitc desison is its worst atribute an its above avreage in other aspects.Story does falter at points.

17. Beyond the Boundary

Awsome animation an a pretty decent story.

18. Golden Time

Slice of life romance comedy thing thats above average in story an animation.

19. Kill la Kill

Over the top in every way.With head nods to past anime that do not rely on parody.Good looney toone stuff.

20. Outbreak Company

Animation is good an the hat tips to older manga an anime was pretty good.Mostly self contained if no second season.

21. Valvrave the Liberator 2

second season goes along at a good pace. Good animation deep plot an subplots.Just bit to heavy with flash forward stuff an forshadowing .Recomended.

22. Strike the Blood

well above average on animation.Great use of chapters for story arcs.It has a few problems but its above average at the very least.

23. I Couldn’t Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job.

while average in story it has some decent animation an twists on the hero out of work gene.Light fluff but does ask some questions on why some one would want to be a hero.

24. Freezing Vibration

If you liked the 1st an watched all fo the second odds are you will end up likeing it.Flaws abound but its watchable.

25. Walkure Romanze: Shojo Kishi Monogatari

above average animation but felt liek a change in production some where turned it from henti to a disney-ish anime :/

26. Unbreakable Machine Doll

better than average on many things. tho cgi is not one of them.Story is not near as ecchi as people think.But it does have boob jokes .

27. Arpeggio of Blue Steel

Weekest part is its cgi animation .As well as it not meshing up with what the trailer looked like.Taken as a lighter shonen its fine.Expecting more an you wil be dispointed.

28. Case Closed: The Time-Bombed Skyscraper

consider its age when veiwing but its a pretty good family anime movie.Does a decent job to intriduce the character to thos unfamilar as well.

29. Case Closed: The Fourteenth Target

better animation than the 1st movie.Good story an background that adds to the characters.

30. Case Closed: The Last Wizard Of The Century

Every thing a anime movie should be . better animation good story an building upon the series.

31. Case Closed: Captured in Her Eyes

other than the soapy soap opera bits it was prety good.

32. Case Closed: Countdown to Heaven

pretty good .some movie referaces tho.

33. Case Closed: The Phantom of Baker Street

Fairly heavy handed on politics but pretty good.

34. Detective Conan: Crossroad in the Ancient Capital

Pretty good use of cgi to fit the animation style.Good story to.

35. Detective Conan: Magician of the Silver Sky

If you like the conan series its really good.If not the story may sem bit confusing even with the introduction.

36. Detective Conan: Strategy Above the Depths

pretty good stuff

37. Detective Conan: The Private Eyes' Requiem

This one was predictable at the start then threw some curves .Patern in these movies is most all of the cast members from the tv series.Its above average for the fans of the show.

38. Detective Conan: Jolly Roger in the Deep Azure

felt like a long arc of the series than a move. bit better than average for fans of the series.

39. Detective Conan: Full Score of Fear

for fans it would be above average for every one else your milage may vary.

40. Detective Conan: The Raven Chaser

Good movie for fans .Bit more complicated for those who are just picking up the series.Some good animation at times.

41. Detective Conan: The Lost Ship in The Sky

realy good for fans of the series again average an above for those that are just starting.

42. Detective Conan: Quarter of Silence

bit over the top tear jerker for the movie series.Still worth watching as a fan of the series.

43. Detective Conan: The Eleventh Striker

movies tho geting better in animation an cgi seem to be geting worse on the story.Still for fans of the series its a worth watchign.

44. Detective Conan: Private Eye in the Distant Sea

Some characters were doing things out of character a bit. But over all a pretty good anime.Cgi was heavy at times but mostly fit the style of the show.

45. Lupin III: Operation Return the Treasure (special)

Fun older style movie in the series.Tho animation at times was not much above average.It carried it self well.

46. Redline

Another anime that feels as if it lept from the pages of Heavy Metal.Great art style an designs.

47. Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone

alot of quality visuals. Not sure how ti stacks up to the series its based on but it was well above average for sure.

48. Seitokai Yakuindomo

Comedy not for every one .Much joke on adult toys to tampons.Not a typlical anime high school comedy.Not recomended watching while drinking .good use of cgi at times to.

49. Kids on the Slope

Forgot to add this one .Great animation quality to match its sound. Good stroy of family an first loves.

50. Naruto

Pretty solid shonen. Tho they bake the filler as flashbacks to often. An animation quality varies alot.

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.

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.
