You know what's "too cool for school?" Writing off forty years of animation, that's what!

One of my favorites of all time "Hakujaden" came out in 1958, how dare you ignore anything pre-1960. Razz
(seriously tho, I really do love that flick)

Also, I don't know why they bothered to do an 80s and 90s rankings. Anime didn't even really get good till the 2000s. Although I'm guessing Zack and crew will ignore all the true gems from that period in their continuing effort to be "too cool for school."
I'm sorry, but do you know Hokuto No Ken, because my head just exploded.

Martian Successor Nadesico has the greatest re-cap episode of all time. It is worth watching the series just for that alone. The OP is also one of the best ever.

I can't stand this relativism. Words have meaning and right and wrong pronunciations. "There is no wrong answer" is killing the English language. It doesn't matter if it "this is Americuh" to excuse one's ignorance.


It's "Amurica." Please, if you're going to intentionally misspell a word as a heavy-handed accusation of ignorance, at least use the accepted misspelling.

I'm so happy my comment spewed off all this nonsense! The amount of inaccurate bold stupid statements had me cracking up. I guess ignorance is bliss.

My memory of Gundam Wing is a little hazy. Which episodes had Trowa dressed as a clown and Wufei fighting wolves? I'm curious to see how badly animated they are.

Not that I'm judging but it sounds like your opinions are 100% objectively wrong about everything. Sorry.

Blue Seed is a pretty good show, I even have it on DVD. Saw it for the first time on the Action Channel. The English dub doesn't hold up, though.

Very nice reference.

Another good top 10 show, have been quite enjoying these. Some stuff I have never heard of as usual in the lists and the usual load of overrated "artsy"(for lack of a better term) crap, but still.

As ever, though, ANNcast has the wonderous ability to just piss me off due to how condescending the people on it always sound, especially Zac. How they just laugh off and mock some people's lists is just damn annoying.

Sad to see that this thread has devolved into people gettin' mad as hell that someone has a different opinion than theirs.
