Must-sees

The very best of the best.

Unexpected Glory

  • Puella Magi Madoka Magica - The very best anime of 2011. Masquerading as a stereotypical magical girl anime, it forces a darkly Faustian plot through the weak moral values of the genre.
    • The magic of the narrative and the hidden secrets within turned otakus of trivial background into cryptographers, mathematicians, philosophers, and spectulating intellectuals within weeks. Nowhere else will you find a fanbase just as enlightened.
  • Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - It's Evangelion done right. GAINAX's Gurren Lagann is a return to the glorious mecha anime that made Japanese TV worth watching in the first place.
  • End of Evangelion -

The Epic Adventure

Supreme Disappointments

Great idea, bad execution. Still worth a watch for cultural importance.

  • Neon Genesis Evangelion - GAINAX's classic mecha deconstruction of the 1990s. The mess of Christian symbolism and it's indecipherable ending caused no end of aggravation from it's fans.
  • Fullmetal Alchemist - Prussian militarized fighting alchemists FTW. Not as cool when they all go to the Nazis.

Classics

The trailblazers that made anime worth watching in the first place.

  • Akira - The dark, futurepunk movie that began the trend of fighting teenagers. It's pretty good.
  • Dragonball Z - If you were a little kid in America, it wasn't easy to miss this series.
