We'll never agree on a single "best anime ever," but I think we can reach some consensus on a canon of titles that are all worthy of serious consideration.

ITT, legitimate contenders for the title of best anime ever made. Be objective. Set aside personal tastes.

Starting with an obvious one.

Why would anyone think you're kidding? Eva is a given.

Haibane Renmei.

I think it was perfect for achieving what it set out to achieve at a perfect length. Very rewatchable with a god tier soundtrack.
>>
The Rebellion Story
>>
Code Geas for pure entertainment value
>>
GitS: SAC

Only the first gig though.
>>
>>120972101
Great choice. I'll agree with this guy.
>>
>>120972029
Nah, it's shit. The drama is over the top and forced.

It's yuyushiki, but I don't expect you plebs to understand.

>>120972095
It certainly isn't.

One Piece for best manga

Texhnolyze
Casshern Sins
LoGH
Planetes

Aria

Kanon 2006

This is how you do drama. The Butcher should study this anime.
>>
>>120972029
If you legitimately believe this you should probably kill yourself.
>>
Lain, motherfucker
>>
Evangelion
>>
>>120972347
this post is likely to attract some shitposting but I actually agree with it, no other manga is as entertaining as One Piece for me even after all these years

The first part of FMA and the later part of FMA brotherhood

Gits, sorry, but if we're talking anime, then we have to go with the movie as a masterpiece of the medium.
>>
>>120972492
>the movie
I assume you mean Innocence.
>>
>>120972381
I like Casshern but it's so slow that I don't think it has universal appeal. Planetes manga is great, but the anime is just OK.
>>
>>120972198
I liked the 2nd Gig better
>>
>>120972343
Only someone in complete denial of its status and influence within the medium would not be naming Evangelion as one of the first anime to be in the running.

You're welcome to your opinion on how good it is, but its importance alone is enough to make it a serious talking point. It would be like removing Vertigo or Gone with the Wind or something from talks about the greatest American film.

It's good at what it does, absolutely, but its hardly GOAT in anything it does imo.

Just a really enjoyable anime that really doesn't make waves in any sense imo.
>>
>>120972198
I enjoyed both.
>>
>>120971410
Gurren Lagann.
>>
>>120971410
>Starting with an obvious one.

No. Rurouni is boring as shit.
>>
>>120971410
Boku no pico.

But other top contenders would be Lain and Tatami Galaxy

> Only the first gig though.
kill yourself

Also for GitS: SAC has a lot of mediocre episodes in the middle, so I'm not sure
>>
Lain is probably one of the best. It's certainly very unique in it's atmosphere and design. I always feel a bit creeper out after I watch it. In a good way.
>>
>>120971410
>>120971901
>>120971999
and LoGH are the only ones I could agree to so far.

No we can't. Fuck off

Eureka 7

>>120972347
For manga.

>>120972437
For TV anime.

If I was being subjective I would chose differently.
>>
>>120972737
The OVA is god tier.
>>
>>120971410
Abeshit and Yuaasashit
LotGH
Texhnolyze
EoE and Evangelion
Tenkuu no Escaflowne
Gankutsuou
Kino no Tabi
Aria
Rose of Versailles
Shoujo Kakumei Utena
Some Ghiblishit
Tenshi no Tamago
Monster

Only the 2003 ver. Brotherhood is good but was filled with unlaughable jokes and the antagonist (Father) was too stereotypical in comparison to Dante
>>
>>120972760
Calm down m8. I didn't even say 2nd Gig is bad, it's not. I'm just saying I prefer the first season.

Also, define mediocre. A lot of the stand alone episodes are really good.
>>
>>120972795
>Not agreeing to abeshit
Kill yourself.

Code Geass
Fullmetal Alchemist
Madoka
Dragon Ball Z

Not who you're replying to, but agreed on the stand alone episodes. The tank episode gets me every time.

The correct answer is PRINCES MOTHERFUCKING TUTU

You can't be objective about this. No matter how good the anime is there will always be people that refuse to accept it.
