People all over the world have different tastes, different interests... how about you? What do you think is the best animation or manga people should see at least once?

Rurouni Kenshin (TV), and Tsuioku-hen (OAV). Although, everything past Kyoto in the TV series pretty much stunk. I prefer it in Japanese, of course. Wink

Its gotta be Escaflowne for short series, for long/meduim length series it would be Inuyasha. My favorite OAV is Black Lion. Movie: Spirited Away.

The best anime I've ever seen is Cowboy Bebop hands down.

But barring cowboy bebop i would say the best 12/13 episode series is hellsing, runner up being Gundam 8th MS team. the best 24/25/26 episode anime (not counting cowboy bebop) would have to be full metal panic, runners up include Evangelion, witch hunter robin and trigun. the best anime which spans anywhere from 26-52 episodes would have to be Full metal alchemist or Z Gundam, runners up being ZZ gundam and Mobile suit gundam . the best long spanning anime (anywhere from 50 episodes onwards) would have to be without a doubt Rurouni kenshin, although runners up would have to be Dragonball Z, Yu Yu hakusho and Especially Inu-yasha.

The best OAV are the rurouni kenshin OAVs (also Known as Samurai X Trust and betreyal) Runner up would have to be FLCL.

Hands down, I'd have to say Maison Ikkoku. Simply put, it gives you a real people feel. It doesn't rely on spaceships, sci-fi, magic, or any of the other good stuff. It's a strong character driven series that relies on buidling the story and relationships, rather than using something flashy to attact its viewers. If you are into romantic comedy, I'll take it over any other romantic series hands down. (Yes people, Karekano is not the be all and end all of all romance series)

Rurouni Kenshin Tsuioku-hen. It took all the thing I like about anime, put them together, and then sold it to me for half price. Very Happy

I love it!

So is this a "your favourite anime thread" or a "what anime should everybody see" thread because they require different answers.

My personal favourite anime is Akira but if I had to suggest an anime that everybody to see at least once I would probably go for a Miyazaki movie (maybe Spirited Away) as his movies are universal and have a wider appeal than something along the lines of Akira.

I would have to say my personally favourite would be Rurouni Kenshin followed up by Inu-Yasha. They are both long series. The best short series would be FLCL.

Furi Kuri/Fooly Cooly/FLCL is a bit of a strange series for some. It's what I like to call (quoted from another user whose name I can't remember) "calculated insanity" or something like that.

With all of that zaniness and parody, it's no wonder someone would be totally confused. But to possibly clear some of that up for you, let's just say within all of that sci-fi mumbo jumbo and mayhem, therein lies a pretty good story.

Check here for a more in depth analysis. WARNING: SPOILERS!
