I'm realizing that I have NO CLUE about what's airing in Winter 2014 and no idea what to watch.

Every anime I've seen to completion

Took a while, but I feel confident in saying that this is every single anime I've ever seen to completion or long running series that I've seen all of and still watch on a regular basis. Everything before Kemono no Souja Erin is in ABC order. After that it's by the date that I finished it.

1. Akira

A lot of people love this but I saw it early in my anime life and thought it was a mess as far as storytelling goes. It had some nice spectacle though.

2. Sweet Blue Flowers

If you're wondering why a S title is in the As, it's because I still think of this show as "Aoi Hana". Anyways, interesting show.

3. Appleseed

I thought this was pretty crappy.

4. Appleseed Ex Machina

I thought this was way better than the first film

5. Area 88 TV
6. Big O

Great show... Bruce Wayne with mechs but man... man the last episode... I saw part of this on Cartoon Network and had to wait like 2 years to rent it and see how it ended. Two years... TWO YEARS!!!! And it ended on some straight up tom foolery. Still a good show though.

7. Bleach

The story had me up to a point but now I watch it because the fights are good when the animators stop half-assing it, I like the music and the way that they reveal power ups is pretty epic (mostly scene framing). I'd also say that nobody does first person sword fighting as awesome as Bleach does... or I should say did. They haven't done it like 100 episodes so I think they retired the concept.

8. Bleach: Memories of Nobody

This is a good film but I feel like it's not a good Bleach film. It's interesting though. I rarely connect or care about any characters in Bleach in a way that's any deeper than, "whoa cool fight," but the main girl's story got to me.

9. Bleach: The Diamond Dust Rebellion
10. Bleach: Fade to Black

My favorite 90 minutes of Bleach. Great action and a nice sob story to go with it.

11. Blue Gender

I get a kick out of shows that change up radically in the middle and Blue Gender doesn't disappoint. It starts of as show about people surviving and rebuilding civilization on a destroyed planet that's been overrun with dangerous wildlife and ends up as a show about nymphomaniacs on a space station giving BJs in public.

12. Casshern Sins

I love the art style of this show. It totally validates the money I spend on my HDTV.

13. Chrono Crusade
14. Claymore

I remember a friend describing this and I said something along the lines of, "that sounds like a lame version of Sailor Moon." I was mistaken.

15. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
16. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2
17. Karas
18. Cowboy Bebop
19. Darker than BLACK
20. Daughter of Twenty Faces
21. Death Note

Light is definitely one of my faves. I remember a coworker describing this to me as, "this smart kid writes people's names down," and thinking this had to be the lamest show ever made. This show appeals to the more emo-ish side of me that loved seeing Light send innocent people to their deaths in the cleverest of ways.

22. Dennō Coil

Cute show. I wish it had stayed cute and light-hearted the whole time but still, a really good show.

23. DNAngel
24. Dragon Ball Z
25. Elfen Lied

One of my early faves. Really sad at times with a good bit of death. I'm a sucker for anything that manages to give every character the most tragic of backgrounds.

26. Elfen Lied OVA
27. Ergo Proxy
28. The Vision of Escaflowne
29. Eureka Seven
30. Fullmetal Alchemist

One of my faves. It's like science tech talk mixed with action and religion. I get attached to any bad guy who sits back and controls everything and Dante is one of my faves.

31. Fullmetal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shamballa
32. Full Metal Panic!

I remember reading the Netflix description which described this as a super serious spy anime and being very disappointed with what it actually was. That was about the time where I started ignoring any description of a show that was from a company.

33. Gantz

Probably the only show where I've felt that the fights last way too long. The ending is balls but I enjoyed this. A lot of people that I got attached to died, which is something I always like.

34. Ghost Hound

I believe this was the first HD anime I ever saw on my HDTV.

35. Ghost in the Shell

???

36. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
37. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG

My favorite in the franchise. Political intrigue makes almost anything better and Poker Face is my favorite episode from both SAC series.

38. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Comples - Solid State Society
39. Gilgamesh

I haven't seen this in a long time and my memory is foggy, but I always commend a show where it's an older (not elderly though) woman trying to jump in the sack with a young guy. Reminds me of the childhood I never had.

40. Mobile Suit Gundam Wing

I forget her name, but the war crazy blond is one of my favorites. I thought she was meh until the last like 4 episodes where she dropped a wild viewpoint on something.

41. Mobile Suit Gundam 00
42. Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket
43. Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team
44. Mobile Suit Gundam Seed

A lot of people dislike this and Destiny but I loved both.

45. Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny
46. Gunslinger Girl

More emo depressing stuff that I fall in love with.

47. Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino-
48. Gungrave

This should almost tricked me into dropping it. At first I thought it was going to be some meh zombie/demon hunter show but they went on a long stretch of flashback episodes and those sold me on it.

49. H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~

This show is a weird mix of super fan service and a kinda depressing story. Something happens at the end that was supposed to be sad and shocking, but it made me burst out laughing like, "what the hell??!?! You can't be serious."

"Haters be dammed, this show floats my boat.

Definitely one of my favorite series. I like the story and the major fights are always well animated and a treat to watch. I really like the music in this series as well.


 
 
I like the fact that I am not the only one to like Naruto and to put it in my faves but didn't you say the story in Naruto was only decent to get you from one fight to the other.(just asking)

Well, I guess I should say there are characters and events that I like. I think the story overall is meh and if there weren't nice fights, I would have dropped it. But, there are scenes, events and characters that I think are interesting.

When I say story, I'm thinking like the overall progression and what drives the show forward. I think that part is meh, but there are cool scenes and events in it that I like alot.

You're biggest anime otaku I ever seen in this community.

If there was a Millionaire show on anime topics, you will ace it like it was nothing. For me, I think I only watch 20 shows to completion.

@takashichea: Thanks! I'll wear that like a badge of honor. Unfortunately I probably wouldn't do to well on a Trivia show. I forget a lot of the small details about shows that I watch and mostly remember how I felt about them and scenes or plot points that stood out to me.

Awesome list. I am currently watching Bleach online and i agree with you 100%. I hate how they have random ass filers in the middle of fights. I would rather have Naruto Flashback Moments. At least they don't interrupt the current fights with random filler episodes. They only do it after the current arc ends and then they do a filler if the anime is catching up.

Yo do you want to come over to anime vice's sister site Screened and help out adding in anime characters from these shows?

We Could use the help.

Thanks!
