There are too many Floating islands/cities in Anime, i'm not sure why Castle in the Sky is so special?

there are alot more epic/crazy structures in anime than those.
Like Space elevators from Gundam 00.

A. Ghibli
B. 1986

It was one of the first, and it has the distinct title of "Laputa: Castle in the Sky" It's right in the name.

So the parameters are popularity, bad graphic, big names.

If you don't like the list, make your own. There's no point in getting anal over an article that's meant to be light-hearted entertainment.

Um... Ranma's dad is named Genma, not Gendo... I think you're thinking of Gendo Ikari...

Not exactly. There is someone who turns into a chimera of that. He adds an octopus to mix as well. There's also a lake of a drowned god.

Fully voiced dialogue is pretty cool now that it seems to often include anime voice actors IMO.

As to the list, weren't the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World all manmade? If so, how does the Ranma (speaking of old lol) get in?

I can't say that I'm particularly impressed by the walls in Titan. I hadn't thought of them as some sort of analogue to the Great Wall of China though. If that's what they're intended to be then I believe the creator of Titan failed some history classes.
