    Agreed. I was surprised Lost Universe made the list (though I love that show, unlike other Slayers fans I know).

    I tried watching Lost Universe while trying to catch up on 90's shows and I'm surprised I made it through. Even by 90's standards, the budget for the thing must have been rock bottom..

    It is further down the list on the actual link. Not much further, either.

    Dragonball is 80's. It ended in the early 90's, with the craptastic GT, no wonder it's not here.

    Well to be fair yu-gi-oh is stupidly popular with the kids. Of course, it could be refering to the first yu-gi-oh anime which was dark as fuck.

    agree, and agree a lot, sadly Escaflowne runs at the same time than Gundam wing and lost in audience, and wasnt very popular in japan.

    It was suposed to be a 50-45 episode series, but after low ratings issues, the studio cut the show and left it with just 26 episodes.

    My first animes asides Pokemans and Digimans were Card Captor Sakura, Gundam Wing (on TV), then later Utena, Eva and Hellsing which I bought myself.

    90ies, IT WAS AMAZING.

    Harmony Gold, is to blame for jacking up the Macross/Robotech copy right issue.

    Regardless of those issues, Robotech was fun none the less!

    For all its hate, Robotech was soooo much better then stuff like Dragon Ball Z when it was airing on cartoon network when I was in elementary school.

    Still have the preference for that matter..

    wasn't robotech a mash-up of Macross and space battleship yamato? either way i still enjoy the hell out of it.

    A rather surprising amount of our old childhood shows were anime. I was surprised when I looked up "The Little Koala" the other day, and found that sneaky Nickelodeon had been giving me a japanese show. XD

    As for this list: I find it humorously ironic that there aren't any "pantsu" - no, fuck it, any PANTY shows on it. (refuse to use a word that takes two extra letters to indicate the same fucking word =P) And when we examine the average age and character designs, the majority tended to be sixteen and up, and looked it. ...So maybe there's more truth than we'd like, to accusations of the industry heading into the "covert animated child porn" area. =\

    Robotech is Macross, Southern Cross, and Mospeada. Star Blazers is Yamato.

    Southern Cross actually made better by being in Robotech, and Mospeada was remarkably untouched (compared to the other two, as well as how it left things like the crossdressing in). Much of what was done to Macross doesn't make any sense... but the strength of the original still carries through despite that.

    they aired Robotech as re-runs in the 90s, I didn't know at the time.

    Robotech is Macross mashed up with some other series and translated into English. It was a mess but it was the first glorious glimpse of anime for many of us and we loved it. :)

    You do realize that Robotech and Macross is not the same, right?

    In that they have nothing to do with each other.
