The Best Rating Comment
Berserk (TV) Excellent Big swords, and a guy whose slowly working his way to the throne. The first and last episodes are disappointing...... the last one especially, demons? Other then the regrettable and nonsensical first and last episode, the rest of the series is great, though a tiny bit anti climatic, you can tell this anime shaped the way for some of the current series, such as the similar roles the main characters play in texhnolyze and gungrave, also claymore has many similarities, such as big swords, medieval times, animation looks a tiny bit similar, but claymore has the better animation because its newer.
Claymore (TV) Masterpiece Like the evolution of Berserk, except even better. Starts out a little slow as just your basic action story with a twist of drama being these "emotionless" (far from it the more you watch) half demon half humans get attached to younger humans who befriend them. However once you hit about episode 10, you'll come to realize that this war between Claymores (half demon half human) and yoma (demons) is much more then meets the eye, the organization is out to cover its tracks, and the strongest of the demons is about to wage war. Once your past episode 3 or 4ish this anime has some of the best action sequences I've ever seen, not only that but the plot slowly keeps building up, making almost every episode better then the last, because unlike other animes, when it ups the anti the characters aren't pulling out the same "kamehameha".
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (TV) Excellent Power to control the will of others, and leads a rebellion with it. Other then the incompetence of his opponents and the utter absurdity of his "school life" in it, this anime comes in a close second with Death Note for situations where the main character outwits his opponent in ways that you don't see coming, plus it delivers more drama and action then Death Note. The action is decent nothing special, but fairly believable (until later on where it becomes like the end of Gundam series where they get big cannon and obliterate stuff, : (.
Death Note (TV) Masterpiece
Ergo Proxy (TV) Masterpiece This series packs more references to famous American, European, and Japanese arts, literature and culture then any other anime, all while running a plot line through a sequence of episodes that explore different aspects of society and the mind and your place in society. Not to mention there's some action to boot, great animation, lovable characters,
FLCL (OAV) Masterpiece This show makes Chaos look sexy (anime classic)
Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu (TV) Masterpiece Hilarious take on Full Metal Panic! Easily tied with Abenobashi for best anime comedy of all time. When a child is only trained in military tactics he can take the ordinary a little too seriously, ends up in hilarity.
Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi (TV) Excellent Mocks anime stereotypes hilariously. Gotta give it to an anime where one of the first things a kid does once he's in a space station is takes a piss into outer space.
(The) Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (TV) Masterpiece Kind of like a toned down FLCL in some ways, this ones tackles a little bit more drama and is a decent bit funnier then FLCL. If it wasn't for the constant narration this series wouldn't be nearly as great as it is. (I think self narration from the main character shows depth, and I tend to like stuff like that, blunt thoughts can be hilarious).
Mushi-Shi (TV) Masterpiece
Paranoia Agent (TV) Masterpiece Psychological but a bit abstract, interesting animation style and catchy/drive-you-insane theme song (only theme song I'll prolly ever mention except for FLCL and texhnolyze, the pillows rock). This anime has one of the BEST endings ever.
Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal (OAV) Masterpiece another grand anime classic (should need no explanation)
Trigun (TV) Masterpiece Anime Classic, the best and probably only western in anime. It had religious undertones, a main character who didn't kill people, comedy, romance, preachers with guns and church shaped hats used as a traveling confessional, did I mention gunslinging.
