Smile Best. Anime and Manga series. Ever.

This just can't be a poll... I don't see more than 2 people agreeing about this one .

So, what's your choice for best anime ever? I hardly can choose myself, there are just so many that are so good...

I would have to say Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai-X) has gotten my complete attention these days. Appart from the overwhelming art of the manga, there is also the whole historical context, and such great characters like Sanosuke, Hajime Saito, Enishi, just to name a few. And the anime speaks for itself, specially the OVAs.

Runner up would be Cowboy Bebop.
 


Insert philosophical phrase here. Yeaaaaah right.

Jeez..Neon Evangelion, Cowboy Bebeop, yep all good series.

i was a bit doubtful regarding Perfect Blue being nominated, it was good I felt, but not warranted as being great.

Default Well...

I enjoy psychological thrillers, and I was happy to find "Perfect Blue", and I think it is a great movie... Mind, I watched it just after "Blood: The Last Vampire"... that one was okay, but not as good; a bit too "Hollywood" for my tastes...

I think Saysadie we have to disagree to agree, I though Blood was very good infact, short, but it was the first time anime utilising digital technology, and though no excuse I admit, it was a faithful adaption of the manga. The lead character did seem to resemble angelina jolie a bit me thinks though, and fascination with schoolgirl uniforms still runs strong

By no means is Perfect Blue great, but I understand what you mean, you like psychological thrillers etc, but for me it wasn;t that good a thriller, it failed on many levels for me, but i did enjoy it though. I know friends who think its excellent though.

Its good that many people support anime though, its sort of died in the UK now..

To each their own, m'dear! I know nothing about the Blood Manga, so I really can't comment on that... I did enjoy the movie's story, but I tend to be a bit leery of that "type" of movie... heavily reliant on visuals isn't really my thing... and, of course, neither are the schoolgirl uniforms...

Perfect Blue was the very first psychological thriller anime that I had seen... I really don't have much of a basis for comparision, so, for me, it is the best... so far. I've no doubt there's much better out there.... care to suggest any? I'm always looking for good Anime titles.

Saysadie try Serial Experiments Lain, rent it our or borrow a copy. But very good, here's some stuff about it I nicked form Amazon



Serial Experiments Lain is deep, very deep. As an anime almost indescribable, it will stick will you for life as it haunts you with its silent mysteries. Never have I seen an anime anything like this one. I remember the nights where Lain just stood in my head, as I wondered how the true secrets would eventually uncover from their cloaked darkness.

The artwork that was shown in this raging series was that of which reminded me of something from a basic MTV cartoon. Of course this isn't awful at any bit, it's just a different style with a nice appeal of eye candy and detailed but somewhat creepy designs. The unique computer (or according to this anime title, "Navi") and electrical designs/styles were done very beautifully and caught my eye every time. I curiously noted much of the Navi features and I thought about the terrific effort that was placed into animating each little part of the visually pleasing features. If you look hard enough at Serial Experiments Lain's art, you'll spot marvelous examples of well-done (and not to mention talented) Japanese animation creations. So, although the visual artwork can be a tad strange every once and awhile, it is fine non-the less and is something oddly different.

A major part of Serial Experiments Lain to me was the puzzling, tragic, and disturbing story to it. I was almost completely lost during the first and second volumes, but then once you hit a little further into the series, everything starts to slowly pile together and make sense.

Lain is fourteen years old, regular amount of friends, quiet and un-social, but lately Lain seems to be different. What is happening to her the life around her... her world... what is it? After getting an unknown e-mail from a girl in Lain's class who has killed herself, everything starts becoming different... but why? "The Wired" (or this anime's version of something very similar to the internet) is the popular thing to the many kids (are they really kids...?) around her. Everyone's on it. What's so good about it? Could it be holding some sort of lethal secret that Lain is to find out? But... why Lain? What is this "Wired?" Is the "Wired" the reasoning for all of the ghostly events that have been happening recently?! Could a world of some sort be slowly dripping into our own.....

We're all connected... Come to the "Wired" as soon as you can... Why won't you come? ...Why won't you come...?
