    Wait wait wait wait WAIT. You mean to tell me bebop actually made it on a list?

    Comment by Anonymous

    Yes. But that actually is a bad thing if you think deeply about it. It means Japan WAS aware of its existence, thus, making its absence from other lists even worse than it was when they were published. So... good for it being on the list, but now japanese otakus left themselves even more in shame than before.

    Honestly, I don't care about their opinions. I'm just shocked it was even on their radar to begin with.

    No Black Lagoon?

    Cowboy Bebop deserves the top slot especially
    for the shootout in the church between Spike and
    Vicious.Also the gun battle at the end.

    But what about Black Lagoon and the shootouts
    in the bar between Revy and company and Roberta.
    Balalaika, the nuns of the Ripoff Church,
    The bowling alley at the end.
    Actually the whole series is a running gun battle!

    They torpedoed a Hind attack helicopter with a PT boat! One of my all time favorite scenes!!

    Hell yeah, Black Lagoon!!!!

    How about the big throwdown between Rebbie and the maid? EPIC!

    Not a SINGLE MENTIONING OF TENGEN TOPPA GURREN LAGANN?

    I am disappointed in you all.

    Gurren Lagann's fights generally boiled down to:

    Giant Drill!
    Giant Drill didn't work? Then BIGGER Giant Drill!
    Bigger not enough? Then DRILLS FROM EVERY SOCKET ATTTTACKKKK!
    MORE DRILLS!
    BIGGER DRILL!
    BIGGER ROBOT!
    BIGGER DRILL ROBOT!!!

    Don't get me wrong, I love the series, but fights were all won with hot-blood and deus ex machina. Not its strongest point.

    You didn't watch TTGL to say this.

    Well, TTGL fights are entertaining, but the entertainment comes more from its setting, the drama, the characters, etc. The show makes you feel pumped up, so even a simple punch makes you go "FUCK YEA"

    Not saying the fighting is bad or the show is bad, but without the whole experience, just looking at the fighting itself, it just isn't the same.

    Try this: watch it with the sound off, and fast forward/skip when it's the characters talking/showing off to set up just why TTGL/Simon is so awesome, and he's about to awesomely kick ass.

    No more Simon making badass speeches
    No more WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM
    No more shouting your moves on the top of your lungs.

    Agreed. No Hokuto no Ken, no Gurren Lagann,. No G-Gundam, or Casshern, Or DBZ or Outlaw Star. This list has Cowboy Bebop, but it's number 10 when it should be top 3.

    Seriously Japan, just stop making these lists. You guys don't know anything and have zero taste.

    .. seriously? Girls und Panzer ? The "battles"(if we can even call them that) are subpar and predictable at best.
    Same can be said about quite a few others.

    They're just plain idiotic. Russians had more tanks, much better tanks, much better position and their lolis were cuter, but they still have lost!
    А ведь они так и не спели "Три Танкиста"!

    Macross Plus admittedly belongs where it is. It has the best animated battles of any Macross to date, hands down.

    Frontier is probably just further down the list, but really it's no Plus.

    This. Macross Plus (movie version) has undeniably one of the most GAR scenes in anime history.

    May be true, may not be but the only reason Macross Plus is on the list is because it came out on bluray recently. Any Japan list is dominated by what has been released in the past year or so.

    BTW, the Frontier movies blow away anything Macross has ever done. The Daedalus attack in that is god-like. I'd also put up Klan's revenge on the Bajira from the series higher than anything in Plus.

    It's probably combined with nostalgia factor considering Plus was the first Macross to use CGI to animate fight scenes. But the 2 Frontier movies battles are just pure epicness.

    Nanoha was mainly "KABOOM."
