    This list is about as worthy, relevant and noteworthy as a list of Artefag's last 10 IMAGINARY SEX PARTNERS.

    This is also from Sankaku:

    Was wondering that as well... there is a remake? Couldn't find anything hinting at that on ANN or other sources...

    1. AKB0048

    So it's going to be an anime based on an Otaku's quest to buy 1000 CDs of the same album in order to attend a handshaking event? Epic storyline right there.

    Sadly, that would make a much better storyline than 99% of anime these days.

    One otaku on a quest to obtain 1000 CDs. Standing between him and his destination are: long queues, muggers, inventory management, tsunamis, nuclear aftermaths and the most dreaded of them all: other otaku.

    Yeah. It's like Genshiken except all the lovable otakus are a bunch of balding fatfucks in their late 30's.

    Lovable plot device: Jacking off & hiding one's cum on the palm for the 15 seconds before hand-shaking time!!! Lulz every time.

    There really are a lot of animes with deep stories and good characters, but they never make it on any 'Top 10' list that you see. The most popular shows seem to be the blandest, which says something about the viewers.

    I can understand your reaction, since I can't stand most of these popular show either, but there are plenty series that are worth it. A great place to start is Noitamina's programming block and from there out it isn't so difficult to find even bigger gems.

    I am a 2D Otaku rather than a 3D Idol otaku.

    Then again I still love them. They are still my brothers of a different mother.

    Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka? OF THE DEAD
    - Need a new anime for some LOL moments, since Gintama takes on a god-only-knows-how-long hiatus. Just hope this time it makes more sense than Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka?'s fanservice ending.

    Accel World
    - A fatass main character, great story, great romance (Kuroyukihime ftw). Let's see how they blend these together.

    Medaka Box
    - What's else to say? The manga's great, and now its time to see whether the anime can deliver the same blow. Can't wait to see how they voice out Kumagawa lol.

    - Cute zombie girl with a tendency to devour you out of love. The birth of a new fetish?

    Your list is pure win, my fellow otaku ^_^

    Accel World episodes 1 na d2 are already out and subbed. Pretty good story. Like a cross between the Matrix and Tron.

    (downloading 'yourself' or an avatar of yourself into a Virtual World to play games and win points)

    I've read the manga up until the most recent chapter, and I gotta say, I'm hooked.

    Plus there is some romance hinted at as well.

    Kore wa Zombie desu-ka? Of The Dead! and Medaka Box = must watch.

    Aceel World is only out with eye-cancer video and brain-cancer subs. Wait until it gets a TV airing.

    you know what, i dont even know what all the hype to the fate series is all about, cause to me it seems overrated. i actually watched FSN to about ep 17 just because it had high ratings. i forced myself to watch the eps just to see if i can get into the hype that this anime got but i couldnt. what got me through the eps was pretty much just wanting to see more Saber, but even that couldnt get me to continue watching, cause basically the storyline was boring to me. No im not some akb0048 fan, i aint even into that kinda music. ive only known who they are about a week ago while i was searching through this seasons animes.

    Please, go play the game before judging FSN, anime was pure shit, movie was good but shit anyway (they totally destroyed one of the best plot ever!). The VN is far better, complete and awesome in every level. The hype for FSN anime was because of the game, but that hype soon died as soon as the episode reached 10 and the only ones who have been hyped were someones that hasn't played the game and liked the anime anyway...
