Newtype USA announces the top 25 anime of all time!

Neon Genesis Evangelion takes top spot

Special second-anniversary issue!

HOUSTON, October 25, 2004—The readers voted, and Newtype USA counted! To celebrate its second year of publication, Newtype USA ran a three-month open ballot on readers' top anime of all time. After hand-counting more than 11,700 votes, the results are in!
