Comment on Top 10 Original Anime by Anonymous:

Not so much “forgot,” as purposefully limited my list of possible omissions to a dozen entries, so as to avoid typing all night (hence why I said, “not limited to”). Believe me, I had quite a few others in mind that I didn’t mention. For instance, I’d have thrown RahXephon out there, too, except it would have seemed like I was mostly just pushing mecha series.

As it was, my list was longer than the poll list. Obviously all of these shows can’t be top-ten all time. Some of them might deserve that honor ahead of some of those on the poll list, though. I have to believe that, if nothing else, Utena and Gundam deserve to be on there more than, say Angel Beats and Dog Days.

    i thought that s-cry-ed was based off the manga? Or was it that the manga was based off the anime>

    @Darkrockslizer I feel you on the “Wishmaster”‘s misheard lyrics.

    Burst Angel? Are you serious? That series was so bad and repetitive it was not funny.

    And where is Baccano! on this list? When was the last time anyone saw a show that was effectively a series of vignettes starring 1920’s New York mobsters, immortals (some of whom are also mobsters), homunculi and a Badass Normal gymnast who could kill anyone ever? Never before. No Japanese period piece has ever been this ‘fresh’ from a content standpoint and no juxtaposition by a Japanese author has been as ‘new’.
