Most popular anime

Post by retroactiv »

Hi, I was just wondering what are the most popular/ renowned anime. I'm guessing titles like Evangelion, Naruto and Bleach are in the list (pokemon, digimon, sailormoon I suppose are widely known, but I'm more interested in anime of a higher quality).

i suppose Akira, which may not be as popular now but it pretty much triggered the widespread release of anime in the uk, as for other series, ones that seem to get commented on fairly regularly would be "the melancholy of suzumia haruhi", "elfen lied", "Ranma 1/2", "tenchi muyo", these last two for definite as they are big series and another season of tenchi muyo came out maybe a year ago so its still pretty popular

I'm surprised "Fullmetal Alchemist" hasn't been mentioned yet. One of the highest rated widely viewed anime on AniDB. "InuYasha" is another one I'm surprised hasn't been mentioned yet. (Being shown on Cartoon Network helped a lot in making both of them famous.)

And if you want infamous instead of famous, "Eiken" has a legendary amount of fan service. If you watch "Eiken" you will either love it for its over-the-top nature, or hate it for the same reason, there is no in-between.

No Trigun? I'm surprised. Of course it may be me cause I watched it in conjunction with Cowboy Bebop, which in itself is amazing. But, yeah, Trigun.
