    I wonder if this'll change when that anime about Jesus and Buddha comes out. ....It would probably be pathetic if it didn't

    Standard Japanese Otaku short memory. Tenchi was so long ago that they don't remember it happened, much less what was in it.

    More like American weeaboos get caught up in like the same 3-4 shows from Cartoon Network that they'll never let go, insisting that their rose-colored vision from watching them in primary school makes them the truest lasting masterpieces.

    (SPOILER ALERT: anime then was as good/bad as anime now)

    watched tenchi recently, as in i have the blurays, besides line delivery, i still consider it one of the greats, if not greatest of the harem genre

    outlaw star, another great anime, not better than bebop but still good

    was trigun one... that is still great, but feels really rushed.

    however anime now... apparently they style it all to sell as fap material. some of that does get a good story, and can be interesting, tell me, if cowboy bebop, trigun, tenchi, really, any pre moe boom anime got a style of today, do you think they would still have the same story if not based of preexisting material?

    'cause Eva just slapped names from the Kabbalah onto weird-looking aliens instead of featuring actual divinities.

    God's Memopad is Kami-sama no Memo-chou, right? But that one has nothing about gods, afaik.

    Still more "god"ly than Clannad. I can't think of anything close to gods in Clannad except maybe the miracle happiness orbs.

    Madoka becomes the concept of what a "kami" is in Japanese folklore, but it's questionable whether she actually reaches the level of one. That said, I wonder if the series was on the list or not...

    "No Oh! My Goddess or Tenchi Muyo."
    This list is irrelevant.

    NO doubt. Again, you know well the kind of fans that made this list....

    15:22 09/10/2012 # ! Neutral (0)

    Right. Because that's the thing everyone remembers about Tenchi Muyo! and Ah! My Goddess. That it's got like fifty chicks and they all wanna bone the male lead. Totally defines the shows.

    Especially Ah! My Goddess. Yeah. I totally remember the episode where the main character agonizes whether to sack the hot young PoA that fell in his lap five minutes ago or stay faithful to the woman he proposed to.

    Obviously, the most REFINED and TRULY MEMORABLE shows qualify.

    After all, Kamichu! s a deep, compassionate story wherein the male character draws the attention of only one lead female who pines for him in a manner that doesn't liken itself to pornography. Nary an inch of indecent flesh exposed.

    Nope. Huh-uh. Nyet. Naw. Certainly not a (very well drawn) retelling of your standard "main male is a spineless slug, therefore everything that doesn't directly qualify as male is hopelessly attracted to him, and he's totally not going to choose the VERY FIRST GIRL THAT SHOWED UP FROM THE START no way no how but OH WOW SEXY SHENANIGANS" plot.

    Class-act grade-A genre-defining storytelling right there, but I can't help but feel like... like the plot's borrowing something. From somewhere. Not sure what.

    Maybe it's just me.

    Club to Death Angel.
    Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt.
    Steel Angel Kurumi?

    Wonder if they meant 'has most divinities in' or 'longest divinities screen time' or 'good to watch'?

    yea well this is about animes that feature some god from actual folklore and mythology

    ''meaning of course those which feature the antics of gods, goddesses and other divinities…'' so i don't know way people started to bring the quality of a said anime bc it is not how is good or bad or better

    I... don't remember Clannad including things like Gods in it.. unless you count the miracle of Nagisa surviving once Tomoya got all the light orbs ...

    It had countless similarities to Shinto mythology, even though this was never referenced to directly. Such as the other world and the connection between the town and Nagisa. I even speculated that Ushio was actually the reincarnation of the town's deity that its inhabitants had forgotten.

    good. at least someone looks 'into' an anime rather than simply absorbing what is been told or just admiring the blobs....
