    Default Onrpg's Anime Essentials List

    This way we can cut down the repetitive threads asking the same question - looking for an anime.

    We'll use a voting system. You can only vote for one anime once. You can vote for as many anime as you like.
    You can also vote negatively. If an anime goes into the negatives- it'll be completely removed from the list.

    When stating the anime you don't need to include Genre Tags.
    Please note whether you're voting for the manga version, or the animated version - You can vote for both - They count as separate anime.

    Do not edit your posts - please just make a new post or it won't be noted.

    Genre Key
    The anime below are tagged with a genre. If you're looking for anime of a particular genre, use the tag (ex: [ACTION]) in your web brower's search/find function.

    Lol. Of course I need to edit to update.
    People posting anime cannot edit or else I cannot count their votes.

    I organize in OpenOffice - and note where I leave off.. for no confusion.
    Then will update daily to weekly. I'll note when I last update on the Opening Post.

    Can I vote for Death note like 30 times?

    Honestly people seem to negative it because they think its popular and over expect things..I honestly think it was simply amazing-period.

    Also + Elfen Lied..

    -Naruto shipuden..After 30 episodes I concluded it was crap

    -Bleach No shana > Bleach.

    + No shana.

    I think Death Note is bad because the story is weak for a show that relies almost entirely on its story. It tries so hard to be witty and have certain twists in it, but I called the entire thing way before I watched any of the episodes with absolutely no surprises, it was predictiable and boring.

    For something that did surprise me
    FMA:2 Lust having her core ripped out and apparently dying, then not being dead

    I can't understand how you can give positive to those ones which are either terrible or similiar to Bleach / Claymore. Can you explain why you don't like those two?

    The hell ?

    The only anime I'd call similar to those in those you quoted is D.Gray-Man, but the plot around it is much more interesting than in those 2.

    You're calling all those other animes terrible ?! What the **** ?!

    Azumanga Daioh is a pretty good comedy, a bit slow paced for maniacs like you that want gore, blood and mindless deaths, but it does not make it terrible.

    The same goes for lucky star.

    Wolf's Rain is my favourite anime, I love the art, how well the post apocalyptic design was done, the originality of the characters...etc... but what the hell who are you to say my anime choice is terrible ?!

    Also Death Note is epic, I don't really see how the story is weak...

    Anyway... wtf don't ever quote my post again without a damn reason just to troll like that. You're not here to judge other's people taste in animes, I don't find any of the animes I voted for to be terrible, if I voted positive it's that I enjoyed them, if I voted negative, it's that I did not enjoy them... If you wonder why I still watch bleach... well... I'm bored as f*** and lack things to do.
