There’s so much excellent anime out there. I can understand how this could be tough to pin down to just ten. You guys could’ve at least added an honorable mentions list, but that in and of itself could be longer than the video already is. Let’s face it. Anime as a medium is special, and there are countless stories that deserve to be recognized.

Which is exactly why ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and the CW should consider having their own variations of a primetime anime block to witness it for what it is to regular broadcast viewers.

@Silver, Guardian of Aura then they belong to different list, Most Impactful Anime. Sazae-san, Osomatsu, Astro boy, Conan, and also Shin-chan belong to that list

Mob Psycho 100 doesn't belong there, not because it was bad, it just wasn't long enough. Gintama, AOT, and Jojo have to be included there
WAR BEAST Hour ago
We’re Naruto?

I feel lile Death Note would definitely be in top 15 if the list was longer. Think I'm finally gonna watch FMA now.

I think the list is to small. Anime that are godly cannot be count with only 10 list. I think using genre like 10 best action/ love/ sci fi anime is better

Honestly disappointed Hunter X Hunter got a spot over Ghost in the Shell or Akira. Those two are like anime heavy hitters.

Dragon ball (Z) is the greatest anime series of all time. Yeah, its narrative/story doesn't have the complexity or depth of other anime, but its simplicity is what makes it resonate to so many cultures and demographics like absolutely no other anime ever has. Over a decade after it finished, Super was released and once again became the most popular anime of its time worldwide, with its Broly movie having a box office greater than any other anime movie, Dragon Ball Fighterz becoming the #1 fighting game at EVO, and the final episodes of Super filling out entire stadiums in Latin America. Its sheer popularity and marketability is absolutely unparalleled, and that says it all.

OMG, Hajime no Ippo it's one of the best for me too, I'm very happy to see it in this top ten! Choose only ten it's too hard, I miss death note and attack on Titan on the list Naruto could deserve a spot, if was not ended with that crappy ninja War xD

Oh look, a top 10 Anime list without DBZ, surely is a serious list created by serious people no doubt. I bet it's been created from people who watch dubbed versions of Anime.

DBZ ( mostly nostalgia, i was 9yo for frieza and Goku, also vegeta’s badass) 1 Hunter X Hunter ( best story, when i finished i was soo sad and i bought me a hunter license on amazon and showed it to a bouncer in Atsugi, Japan to his amusement, i was then let in and bought drinks the whole night lol 3. Attack on titan (manga is crazyyy) 2. DBZ (honestly nostalgia) 1. Hunter X Hunter (change my anime life and nothing after it has beat it)
