Gintama' Enchousen, one of the top anime on the list and there's only like 3 episodes out.. that says alot right there. to people who think gintama is overrated, try watching it. It's not bad, in fact its great. Give it a try, and this dipshit afdal is just bitching out because his favorite anime wasn't number one

For me Gintama became number 1 for this reasons: Good Story, Originality, Character Personality, Funny, and Great Action.

Though the story is episodic at times, they will often be serious arcs that are compromised of a couple episodes. This is where the overall plot and character development most of the time happen (though sometimes episodic episodes have development to). In these you can see that Sorachi is developing towards a bigger picture. Though right now let's read more
