Comment on Top 25 Epoch-Making Anime by Anonymous:

Dear lord, you guys don’t understand the concept of “epoch-making”? Influential?

For something to be influential, the work must affect OTHERS works. Is like saying how a movie or a manga with revolutionary ideas created a bunch of similar or inspired works.

Like Pokemon. After Pokemon, a wave of “kids with their *monster/robots/csrds/thigs* became famous. The concept of a powerfull pet might have appeared before, but the way Pokemon presented it became worldwide famous, and changed the industry forever.

Madoka can’t be influential because it is so new that *nothing* was inspired by it.

    K-on??? lol… I pity this list. Lucky Star and Haruhi were great… but not epoch-making. There are some good “epoch-defining” anime on this list, but epoch-making? I think the author is confused. Or maybe the translation is incorrect.

    Being influenced by something doesn’t mean that something had greater influence though. Otherwise let’s just trace back to the beginning of drawings or something equally ridiculous.

    Not like that last part means much, almost anything is influenced by something. The list didn’t say anything about not being influenced as a requirement to be in it. That being said, I think it’s a bit new to be considered influential quite yet, that’s to be seen.

    What? No “Yu-Gi-Oh!”? Invalid list is invalid.
