Time to nominate your favorite anime!

Rules are simple, nominate a single anime or second one that someone else has nominated.

You may nominate something you have nominated before.

You may not nominate an anime that has previously been Anime of the Month (see list below).

Any finished anime series, movie, or finished OAV is acceptible. Any anime series currently airing is not eligible.

An anime must have a nomination AND a second in order to be put on the final ballot.

This thread will remain open until 3 June 2012.

Please include a url link to the anime that you are nominating as occasionally the name is repeated, but the series are completely different (i.e. Macross).

Previous Winners are as follows:


Azumanga Daioh
Chobits
Clannad
Cowboy Bebop
Darker than Black
Fruits Basket
Fullmetal Alchemist
Ghost in the Shell
Haibane Renmei
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Kimi ni Todoke
Lovely Complex
Michiko to Hatchin
Monster
Mushishi
Nana
Samurai Champloo





EDIT: Clarified a rule that I should have seen coming. No excuse, but it was late and I was sleepy.


EDIT: As of 6:30PM MST, 26 May, the following have been nominated & seconded:

I'll start it off this month with a nomination for the series that celebrates it's thirtieth anniversary on the 29th of June: Mysterious Cities of Gold. A great series for all ages.

A very good question. And the answer is...

Nope, just something you feel is worthy of being our "Anime of the Month" for the month of June. Some people choose a theme based on the month. Myself, I went with an anime that is senior in age, began airing in the month of June, and is pretty well accepted as a classic. I'm assuming that Philly nominated "HSotD" because he felt it was a damn good series (at least I hope that's why he nominated it).

Looking over the previous winners, I found one I knew nothing about...Kiimi ni Todoke, so I looked it up. Looks like a story right up my alley, so I have it queued for future DL. Is season 2 as good?

EDIT: I am DLing both now while they are still available....very low seeding on these now.

Yes, Season 1 and 2 are both very good and once I finished S2 I couldn't get enough so I dove into the manga.

Not being much of a manga reader, I probably won't do that. If they do a season 3 I'll look into it. Arigatou!

I'll second this one. I remember when i was a kid it was one of those I really looked forward to, but it was frustrating because we didn't get the station that had it till later, so I missed several parts of it.

Same here. I vaguely remember some awesome parts. For example when they found a mechanical bird that they could fly with. But I also missed large parts of the series. Ah well :p

Naysayers almost effortlessly make the possible seem impossible since they usually just parrot generalized, oversimplified, or uninspired arguments. However, the proper, but significantly more difficult way to refute an idea is to discredit all major and most minor cases. In contrast, a single convincing solution can prove feasibility though it isn't a trivial pursuit either.

I thought I should mention "Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai". I believe it's worth a nomination.

Ano Natsu de Matteru because it is the most satisfying 12-episode anime original story I have seen in ages.
