A whole bunch of anime shows i like beyond my top 12

These series haven't made my top 12 but there still worth mentioning.

1. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

You can admire the need for one boy's goal to make the world better for his little sister. But the question is does his actions detract from his end goal, using those who trust him and creating a false identity to spark a revolution of empire in a small island nation only to get back at the father who abandoned him. All the help of a strange girl with a taste for pizza.

2. Cowboy Bebop
3. Full Metal Panic!
4. Samurai Champloo
5. Black Lagoon
6. Trigun

Mercy in merciless world is something to admire. Vash is man who could kill every who pulls a gun on him and instead he always looks for the path of least mortality. With a smile on his face. Also i like westerns.

7. Monster

What if in the story of the lion and the mouse. The mouse didn't save a full grown lion but a cub and that cub grew to be powerful and influential lion that would devour innocent people, all because of a sympathy of mouse. That is very how monster is. A doctor who saved a boy for the sake of his career, only for that boy to become a monster that Doctor Tenma must stop.

8. Ouran High School Host Club
9. Spice and Wolf

A merchant meets a wolf in woman's form and shows her the wonder of buying and selling. Gotta credit to a show that makes selling things look interesting.

10. xxxHOLiC
11. Nerima Daikon Brothers
12. Paradise Kiss
13. Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo

Revenge is a pointless endeavor. But the journey and the determination to that revenge can be something of a show to watch. A man abandoned by his friends only to find friendship in the same man's own child create a reflection of his goals. But it never stops him and the result is glorious to watch as the world burns around him.

14. Hellsing Ultimate
15. GTO
16. Serial Experiments Lain
17. Welcome to the NHK

With so many anime series playing nice with NEET and Otaku. It's nice to see a series go straight for the jugular on how it can be just a block for making someones life better. It's need to be so blunt and satirical at the same is something i like in a show.

18. Birdy the Mighty

While the concept of alien woman using herself to keep a teenage boy alive is pretty out there, the series is helped by having amazing action and very attachable characters, birdy's friendship with Senkawa though circumstance is especially entertaining.

19. Seirei no Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit

This is anime i can't say i've ever seen before. A wandering sword for hire is asked to look after a prince with a demon's egg in his stomach. Set to the beautiful setting of a mythical feudal japan, our heroes attempt to make a normal life for themselves but have constant struggles from everyday life to the supernatural.

20. Highschool of the Dead

Definitely one of those series you can enjoy for its style over its substance. A group of high school students try to survive through a zombie apocalypse and make the best of their bad situation one day at a time. you'll definitely like this show if you like boobs.

21. Outlaw Star
22. Fullmetal Alchemist

A journey of redemption for two brothers. Ed and Al's quest is something of question in religion, morality, and acceptance through perseverance. I also really appreciate the authors effort in understanding the study of alchemy and her effort in making original chatacter designs.

23. Dragon Ball

Sure Z is a great action show. But i like a good adventure with a fun cast though strange events. Goku's journey is a fun one with his climb of kami tower, his friendship with Frankenstein's monster, the one man war with the red ribbon army, and his final battle with king piccolo is what i call an epic.

24. Initial D: First Stage
25. You're Under Arrest
26. Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu
27. Paranoia Agent

A short psychological series about the paranoia's people face in their lives surrounded by the events of local serial attack. Its a must see series for its fascinating themes and interesting animation,definitely worth a look.

28. Genshiken

Its a good series about the brighter side of otaku lifestyle, while taking quick jabs at it. But the cast of characters are fun to watch and you like to see what they'll do next.

29. Shigurui: Death Frenzy

Gore. Thats it, gore. Oh you want a synopsis? Okay, its about two rival samurai who try to perfect there own style in a local dojo. With a whole lotta decapitation, impaling, and at one point a guys face cut clean off. So yeah this is a gory series.


There some sort of passing love hat relationship i have with money. And having a anime reflect economics and the prosperity of money while pointing out its many problems is nice. While having a somewhat memorable cast.

31. Genshiken 2

Having enjoyed the first genshiken so much, this new show really left a nice feeling on me with its likable cast and themes.

32. Pokémon Origins

Its a big ol' mini-series that meant to promote the new pokemon game, but dang if it isn't a trip back down memory lane.

33. Please Teacher!

It's a guilty pleasure, just something about the whole stand still gets me interested in the show. But honestly i wished this show could have just ended at 11 instead 12.

34. Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai

It's fascinating to see someone balance there interests and their social life all the while finding some way to reconnect with their siblings through odd means. I took a shot in the dark with this show and i liked it a bit more than i expected.
