    Outlaw Star and Trigun are not fantasy anime, those would be sci-fi, big difference.

    Apart from Beserk not being on this list, and Railgun and Bakemonogatari being 1 and 2, the rest of the list is decent enough.

    By your own standards, Railgun would be sci-fi and Bakemonogatari wouldn't be either.

    yeah, I don't get why Railgun is on there. I mean, I get that it takes place in the same world as Index, which definitely contains some fantasy elements, but Railgun focuses solely on the sci-fi aspects of that world. Though, maybe this was just an error: I'm going to assume several of the voters (and whoever runs the poll, for that matter) treated Index and its spin-off interchangeably, and Railgun was just more popular out of the two.

    (sorry for the double-post, wasn't able to edit my previous one)

    Say, I just remembered: technically, shouldn't Fullmetal count as a sci-fi? I mean, the world may seem like a fantasy at first glance, but whenever it comes to how the series' token super powers actually work, Arakawa seems to know her chemistry. Though, I guess there is some "magic" of sorts involved (the ability to manipulate elements in the first place, for one), but I'd argue that it featured it no more than Outlaw Star did (which was definitely a sci-fi setting, but also had some Taoist enchanters running around, to say nothing of the main character using enchanted bullets).

    Bakemonogatari is Supernatural and Railgun is sci-fi.

    Holy shit, how outdated and overly influenced by nostalgia glasses are you people?! They were all good series, yes, but good shit had come out since the fucking 90's!

    I swear, all of you are the death of the anime industry, complaining about what's popular all the time and not supporting any of the series actually aimed at your demographic.

    It's all cool. I got laid before puberty by a loli.

    I mean literally laid btw. Unsurprisingly shota me wasn't capable of getting an erection, so we kind of just pretended to hump each other. Interesting times.

    same here, when I was 5, she "forced" me to play husband and wife, I wont complain, I rather enjoyed it, but the only problem is that now I love tsundere because of her, and good ones are hard to find in real life. Record of lodoss war actually got me.laid, so it will forever be number 1, I had bought my first manga because of the art on the cover, but it was all in Japanese, a week later a Japanese exchange student was put in my class, so I asked her to read it to me, it ended up being her favorite manga and she just randomly jumped on me while reading it to me. I wished I had that kind of luck now like I did as a kid.

    Zero... Watched it, but why something can be that bland in any department, almost contantly, and get that much love ? (don't start me with Louise, we've seen far better before)

    fucking seconded. Louise: easily one of the most shittily-handled characters I've seen in an anime. I heard a lot of the problems were the result of a crappy adaption on JC Staff's part, though. Still, the fact that the anime version (and subsequently, anime Louise) is what's popular really worries me.

    But to be honest, for the purpose of this poll, the world setting seems like it could've worked to some degree. It's just a shame that we lost a lot of the focus on familiars and elemental classes in favor of the worst romance since Inuyasha/Kagome.

    It's too old for the kiddies who vote in these... Same with Berserk, do this again after they finish the OVA's.

    I also hope they redo Claymore when the manga finishes...

    I love Baka to Test but although I can see why it would be a bit sci-fi, I fail to see how it embodies it.

    Its anime - Berserks anime was pretty incredible one of the best until the ending - which was poorly done they just didnt explain how guts escaped or anything which you get in the manga and the missed a huge demon enemy out which is in the manga. They are doing a movie though.

    Berserk is a masterpiece manga though and greatest fantasy - dark fantasy more so I have ever read and makes game of thrones look like tea time friendly TV and would be number one. berserk changed my life

    Full Metal Alchemist brotherhood anime was amazing though.

    Berserk's manga was good, but this is about the anime, which is subpar at best.

    Anyone realised yet that anime is, for the most part, fantasy? For similar results, see 'top ten animated anime'.

    Sorry to be the obvious, but the To Aru series aren't exactly fantasy.

    Leave it to the Japanese to disappoint. Again. Why is Scientific Railgun on the list? And number 1, at that? Shouldn't that be in Sci-fi, or something? I mean it has Scientific in the title and all. This list has no Bastard!!, no Berserk, and no Rune Soldier. And yeah, it wasn't my first 5 choices, but Hellsing Ultimate really should be in there, too.

    This a suck list.

    Kids nowadays don't like Berserk because it have "shitty graphics".

    Animation technologies are moving forward and kiddies want their animes, as much as their video games, be pretty and fluid, not deep and smart.

    well the animation in Berserk is much better than most new animes. Many old animes have fluid animation unlike stiff animes today (thought there are a few animes with very good animation today too).
