Masterpieces Rating Comment
Berserk (TV) Masterpiece Gritty artwork and lots of blood. Nothing does it quite as well as Berserk does. The abrupt ending pissed me off severely but only made me want to read the manga more, which as of now, I still haven't read a single chapter of. I'll get to it eventually, I guess.
Cowboy Bebop (TV) Masterpiece A style and class which is to this day uncompared, the anime that really started it all for me.
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Masterpiece A great followup movie to Cowboy Bebop, it was nothing short of awesome seeing all of the cast back together with better animation
Desert Punk (TV) Masterpiece The dirtiest humor around, constant curses and bullets flying everywhere on screen at all times. I hadn't been laughing so hard since the first time I watched GTO. The ending was really surprisingly good and well executed.
Elfen Lied (TV) Masterpiece My overall favorite anime. Truely displays all that is wrong with the world. Lucy is probably my favorite overall anime character, displaying the horror of what insanity mixed with a harsh childhood and sociopathical problems can do to a person.
FLCL (OAV) Masterpiece I did a lot of reasearch to understand every joke of this show, and it was worth every second so I could fully appreciate this piece of work.
Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid (TV) Masterpiece Hands down the best FMP! season yet. I always enjoyed the serious episodes more than the school days with the previous seasons and this show definitely delivered. Incest Twins FTW, by the way.
Fullmetal Alchemist (TV) Masterpiece Not since Cowboy Bebop had I seen an anime with such a unique style. Alchemy isn't the most common of subjects for... anything really, and this show made it into a very interesting subject, combined with an awesome plot and likeable characters that were woven in better than any other production I've seen.
Golden Boy (OAV) Masterpiece I only wish there was more of this. It's one of the funniest pieces of work I've seen. While it's extremely repetitive with each episode following a basic outline and an ongoing bathroom scene that you can tell is coming it's just funny enough that it never gets old with me. It's a defiante gotta see if you like more dirty humor shows like GTO.
GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka (TV) Masterpiece Although the Manga is miles ahead of the anime in greatness, the anime is still a masterpiece, it's comedic gold, full of dirty humor and uhh.. "life lessons"
Hellsing (TV) Masterpiece Before Elfen Lied this was possibly the most stylistic horror anime I had seen. Characters are awesome to get to know and really show individuality as the show progresses.
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (movie) Masterpiece Hayao Miyazaki's life work made into a classic 1984 animated movie. The movie's older than me and I finally saw it recently after Disney dubbed it in 2004. To say I was blown away is an understatement. Quite possibly one of my favorite movies ever of Anime and Live action movies.
(Le) Portrait de Petite Cossette (OAV) Masterpiece Petite Cossette is truly a culmination of all things that I love. Blood, guts, torture, pain, excellent direction, a story that is so fine and sharp that it makes you unsure if you've read into everything correctly. The Art style is simply gorgeous and the music suits it so well that it amazes me at times. It left me both satisfied and wanting more at the end, simply because I didn't want to come to the conclusion that it was over.
School Rumble (TV) Masterpiece This ranks right up with Great Teacher Onizuka on the comedy level, though it's more light hearted humor.
Scrapped Princess (TV) Masterpiece This was the first show I really followed as it aired in Japan and got fansubbed weekly. I must admit it spoiled me a lot and I'm really critical on other shows that try to follow in the action/fantasy category. Without a doubt this is top notch anime, and I was very worried for a long time it would never get licensed because it's parent company went out of business halfway through its initial run in Japan. But as I write this now I own all of the series on DVD released by Bandai. Props to them also for dub that I deem worthy of such a high calibur show.
When They Cry - Higurashi (TV) Masterpiece A show that's gonna make you think, I had a lot of fun discussing theories with other people as this show aired and I was surprised how close I was on some of them when two of the answer arcs were aired, go me.
