Slight correction, there is no Japanese dub of Afro Samurai. They watched it in English with Japanese subtitles

I think "Taiyō no ko Esteban" fitted very well in the list Sad

Eh, I was hoping Thundercats 2011 or IGPX would be on here. I think I get more out of them than I would out of Monsuno.

Cool to see Last Unicorn on there! Afro Samurai's impressive too, but it's a little more style than substance, from what I've seen. I don't disagree with it on the list though!

I'm kind of surprised Pupa got so much love. I guess that shows that horror needs a good new show ASAP. I voted for it, but I'm a little disappointed we only get 4-5 minutes per week.... shorts suck.

And as for my New Years Resolutions... is it bad that I actually really do just want to watch more anime?

Oh boy, I hope this thread doesn't get derailed and it turns into a "what is anime, and what is not anime" and people soapboxing that The Last Unicorn, Little Nemo, and Dungeon & Dragons should not be on the list and bashing ANN for doing this.

Also I want to add other that should be considered as anime:

Mighty Orbots-this co-productions was directed by the late Osamu Dezaki.

Mega Man- This show was a co-production between Japan and US (Ruby-Spear) and I think this was directed by Japan.

Skysurfer Strike Force- This show was a co-production between Japan and USA. The second season had a intro sang by the J-rock group, Super Junky Monkey and this was for the US.

So yeah, I would add that to my list. Also please don't let this thread turned into a "this isn't anime, let bash ANN for this" soapbox free for all.

Yep, you're correct.

I don't think that either of those are generally considered anime, but they are still co-productions with Japan. From what I can tell, the list is a mixture of things co-produced with Japan and meant for Western audiences and things co-produced in Japan and still nominally aimed at Japanese audiences, and I gather that's by design.

Shame to see no mention of Oban Star-Racers, it's a hidden gem and it's half French, half Japanese (hell, even the OP that aired in those two countries is half and half). I'd be willing to count Time Jam: Valerian and Laureline too.

Probably not high on the notability list but I really liked the original IGPX micro series and would have liked to have seen that given a full treatment. I haven't seen the full IGPX series which I know is different so won't comment as to if it's good or not but the original did have some great potential. Even as short as it was it was very entertaining.

Could have brought up the anthology works like The Animatrix, Batman Gotham Knight and Halo Legends but they are kind of obvious.

Not at all. I voted for that too, although I don't make actual new year's resolutions. I do want to get my backlog cut way back though, seeing as it's at 800+ discs right now. If I can get down to the low 500's by the end of the year I'll consider it a rousing success.

And probably treat myself by buying a ridiculous amount of anime from the TRSI Christmas sale.

I'm kinda surprised Alfred J. Kwak is not on the list. Oh well.
