In honor of Fanime 2009 this coming weekend, we here at Mana Energy Potions have decided to put together a list of our Top 10 Favorite Animes (TV Series). So break out your spiked blue hair and J-Pop music, and let us know what you think:
– A solid anime that we loved for the first 220 episodes. Then Shippuden came along and split our group apart: some loved it, some hated it. But all in all, we dig the original.
9. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
– If you can’t tell from our Dart chaingun mod, we love cyberpunk culture. ‘Ghost’ gave us just that in an awesome fashion, and showed us a year 2030 that puts Terminator to shame.
8. Love Hina
– Jon swears by this show…as for the rest of us, meh…Just ask Libby her thoughts.
– Seriously, what person wouldn’t want to have Vash’s .45 Colt Long Barrel revolver?
6. Full Metal Alchemist
– The story of Edward and Alphonse hooked us from the start. Armored prosthetics for the win.
4. Death Note
– This unique concept brings up the question “What would you do if you had ultimate power?” In the case of Light, he attempts to use it for what he thought was good, and we loved every minute of it.
3. Samurai Champloo
– A solid follow-up to Cowboy Bebop by Shinichirō Watanabe, that features awesome breakdancing fighting styles and flying squirrels. Where else would you find this winning combination?
2. Last Exile
– Beautiful animation, great art direction, and a solid plot. Done, done and done.
– Nuff said.
