@Taylor: At least “popular=good” can still be argued for the most part in regards to Akihabara’s sub-culture. Do you think the same can ever be said about American pop culture any more?

    I enjoyed AnoHana, but I will say this: any time I hear “noitaminA”, I think “pretentious, overhyped bullshit”. AnoHana was an exception (at least IMO), but nonetheless, it sickens me how people go on about these shows being the most intellectual of intellectual anime just because of what fucking block they aired on.

    I agree with the guy who made that list, Azusa is best. And previously, I’d have said Takane or Miki are potentially second favorites, but lately, that position’s been taken up by Hibiki after I’ve taken more notice of her (my god, does she make gold hoop earrings look good). They’re definitely still high up there, however.

    I do think Akeno’s better than Rias, but only marginally. She probably got on there due to main heroine bias, but it could be a lot worse (Da Capo and IM@s mains… just, meh).

My only real objections are Haruna, Mikan, and Oriana. I’m a Lala fan …

    The lack of Kotomi in those omake greatly concerns me. The best girl has always been lacking in exposure… hell, I didn’t even know about her prior to watching the anime (her and Yukine, though at least the latter can be excused due to being gypped out of being one of the main girls).

    All the sadder considering this is a JAPANESE list. Usually when natives are getting asked this type of question, you’d expect to hear about really, really, really old shit like Lupin, Mahoutsukai Sally, or something. The most truly ancient anime on this list are Doraemon, Space Battleship Yamato, and the original Gundam (which, sadly, got beaten out by SEED). A few of the others are still pretty old, but about 2/3 of the entire list didn’t even exist prior to the new millennium. Also, Sword …

    Sorry, I meant Anon 21:03. Dammit, why doesn’t the edit feature work for me on this site?
