Anime Rankings

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:

TV Series

*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.

OVA series

*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.
*9.0 Legend of the Galactic Heroes (1-52)
1-26 are much better than 27-52 in terms of art and such
*8.9 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
