What's the best Anime you've ever seen? While searching for some new anime to binge, I encountered the question. The internet responded to deliver this authentic list of top-voted best anime series of all time.

1. Violet Evergarden

Violet Evergarden from Netflix was surprisingly amazing and, out of shows, probably my favorite,” said one. “That show made me full-on ugly cry almost every episode. Felt like my soul was being scrubbed of impurities. 10/10 would recommend,” a second person admitted.

2. Steins; Gate

“My first time watching the show: Oh, this seems ok. I'll watch an episode or two before bed. Five episodes later: I'd better put on some coffee. Several episodes later: forget coffee. This show is giving me all the adrenaline I need,” someone explained.

3. Trigun

“I saw it was on Hulu, and I started rewatching it today!!! I just binged 12 episodes,” shared one. “Trigun is classic. Vash somehow manages to walk the line between being effortlessly cool and being a massive dweeb. I love it,” another replied.

4. Akira

“It's one of the few films I buy in every new format. I still have VHS, various downloaded VCD rips, DVD, BluRay, and 4k UHD Bluray. I rate it up there with 2001, Apocalypse NowBaraka, and Full Metal Jacket as one of the most visually engaging bits of cinema ever,” declared another.

5. Ghost in The Shell

“This is the one I will drop everything and watch when I learn there is a new movie, season, or miniseries. The art can be a little hit or miss for me, but the story is awesome,” informed one.

6. One-Punch Man

“I love it because of the way Satima makes fun of anime tropes like the power-up screaming or naming one's special move, a single ordinary punch,” another admitted.

7. Mob Psycho 100

Mob Psycho 100 truly brings out the strength of animation as a medium while maintaining an interesting, heartwarming, and hilarious narrative,” a Redditor expressed. “The comedy is unmatched, and Reigen's antics and character development were fun to watch, along with his interactions with Mob,” a second agreed.

8. Cowboy Bebop

Cowboy Bebop is amazing to me because it's wildly popular, yet it doesn't have any of the same tropes and general clichés that so much modern anime seem to have,” another suggested.

9. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

“I 100% agree with this. Other anime are good, even great, but Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood is one of the few that transcends the genre and enters my top 10 favorite shows list,” answered one.

10. Hunter x Hunter

Hunter x Hunter, honestly, it isn't even close to me ever since watching that. I can't watch anything else. Nen is quite simply the best-crafted power structure in all anime. The way the darkness of the final arc kind of creeps up on you,” a final user confessed.

What do you think? Did Reddit get this right, or is your favorite anime missing from this list?
