There's just too much good quality anime to really rank!
Guess I'll just have to categorize it a little. Rankings are in
decreasing order on a 10-point scale:
- 10.0 (should be 20)
Maison Ikkoku 1-96
- Best romantic comedy, hands down. Just plain awesome. See this
series in order. Wow.
- 9.1 Blueseed 1-20
- Pretty good, even unsubbed.
- 9.0 Ranma 1/2
- Also pretty darn funny, but some episodes are a bit lacking
- 8.8 D.N.A.^2 1-12
- A bit hentai in places, but still pretty good.
- 8.0 Kimagure Orange Road
- Would definitely have been better if they'd let the characters
develop and get a clue!
- 9.8 Wings of Honneamise
- See it in a theater; even LDs won't do the art justice.
- 9.5 Silent Moebius #1, 2
- Yow! Art, animation, music and more showoffs. Really, really good.
- 9.3 Patlabor Movie #2
- Art gets a 10 rating, but the complex plot knocks it down a little
- 9.2 Legend of the Galactic Heroes Movie #1
- Drool. Nice space combat, art & animation
- 9.0 Patlabor Movie #1
- Pretty good
- 8.9 Totoro
- Awesome art and animation. Designed for kids, though
- 7.5 Ranma 1/2 Movie #1
- Starts well, but the fights in the middle are too rushed.
- 9.9 Record of Lodoss Wars (1-13)
- *WHAM*. Really, really, really good. An inspired translation of a D&D campaign to the small screen.
- 9.6 Vampire Princess Miyu (1-4)
- Watch this off a LD player on a 12-foot LCD projected screen,
at 100dB for full impact.
- 9.2 KO Century Beast Warriors (series 1,2)
- Crisp art, and a lot of humor, too.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes (1-52)
- 1-26 are much better than 27-52 in terms of art and such
Video Girl Ai 1-6
- Sweet and sad at once
- Macross + # 1
- Darn nice looking. Music could use some work.
- 8.6 Dragon Half 1-2
- Partly SD parody of all advendure series. A real riot
