i really cant say what anime is most special for me cuz some animes are special for me but not in a same way but if i wanna choose i think its nisekoi.

it was one of first animes that i watched so it might be best reason why its special for me but also i really liked story,romance,music and characters in that anime so its still unique for me.

Jojo: I feel like this series was made for me: the wackiness, the humour, the WTF aspects, the cool characters.

Natsume's Book of Friends: this anime has greatly helped me when I was going through a period of stress.

Monster: mind-blowing plot, themes, and characters.

Yu Yu Hakusho is probably my favorite of all time but, I know that it isn't very good or popular in comparison to other big name jump anime adaptations. However, every time I rewatch it I get this feeling that nothing else can give me.

the first anime I watched that wasn't pokemon or bakugan etc. was SAO and even though it's kinda garbage it'll always be something I love (even if the latter seasons are meh)

Orange Road, because it was the first "cute" / "sweet" TV show I ever show and everything felt noostalgic even though I was aa 3-5 year old kids in the 90s.

Evangelion, the only TV show I watched that felt like an epiphany (thanks to its finale). Of course, it was pretty great before too but the finale made it "something more".

Tough question because all my favs have something special but I think Inuyasha will always be the one I have the strongest emotional attachment to... I watched it during hard times in my childhood and the best part of the day was coming home to watch Inuyasha on Cartoon Network. Just listening to the OPs / EDs again gives me the chills... bruh

The Dragonball series as a whole. If you break it down with no bias whatsoever its not good but growing up on it makes me always look past it's faults and enjoy every minute

I wanna say Dragon Ball Z since I loved that anime to death ever since I was young and it was a major influence in me in eventually becoming an anime fan. It is also the only anime I've watched several times.

But Welcome to the NHK is IMO the best anime I've ever seen and the only anime I was able to relate to so much. Every episode I was either laughing so hard or to the brink of tears. It is also the only anime I've rated to a 10.

Fairy Tail since it was what got me interested in the medium, but also various others such as Wolf Children and Hotarubi no Mori e, which deeply resonated with my childhood emotions, as well as Free! with characters I could relate to and enjoyed heavily. Also pretty much anything I have been in the fandom of (Soul Eater, JoJo, Yuri!!! on Ice, Black Butler).

Neon Genesis Evangelion. As a teenager who could relate to Shinji to some degree, the show really spoke to me and helped shape my outlook on life. Also Dragon Ball for nostalgic reasons.

Inuyasha for its nostalgia and chill adventure vibes.

DBZ and Pokemon for being profoundly large parts of my childhood before I knew what “anime” was.

Naruto for being the best anime ever, by incomparable margins.
Words of wisdom (even though I’m an idiot):

Tomomi Ogawa best girl. Iroha Igarashi best anime girl.

Might Guy best guy.

Weed infinitely enhances the anime experience.

For me it would be High School DxD. Because it was my first anime beside the ones I watched on tv. Thanks to it, I become an anime fan right now.

PriPara, Yuusha de Aru series, Madoka Magica, and Steins;Gate. They're all amazing and were a big turning point for me in my animu watching journey.

Maid Dragon helped me come to terms with myself a while back and Evangelion did so again when I finally understood it and started having another rough patch in my life

Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, without a doubt. Dragon Maid was the first anime that really set the anime chapter in my life. No, it wasn't my first anime, and no it wasn't the anime that got me into the genera. But it was truly the anime that made me actually want to watch more. Without Dragon Maid, I doubt I would have never found out that I really do like the genera, and I would have completely missed out. Yea, I had watched some other animes, but I really didn't love any of them. I didn't want to continue the series, cause it was always going to be the same. But now I think much differently of anime, and really do enjoy it.

Thanks to Dragon Maid im a weeb. ;-;

Sailor Moon. I watched it for the first time as a grown-up and after 6 years, I will always cherish it in my heart. No other series will ever come close to what I feel towards Sailor Moon.

SAO...…..I know, I know it isn't the most loved anime but before I watched SAO the only anime I watched were Pokémon and Digimon. When I first saw SAO it blew my f**king mind. I thought nothing could compare with it for my very very very early times as an anime watcher, but I believe without SAO I wouldn't be the same person I am today.

FOOOOLY COOOLY. I absolutely love the animation in this show. In the beginning when there was the animated manga scene, I cried tears of joy because of the beauty.

Darling in the FranXX is my favorite anime and it will always be special to me because it was the anime that really helped my anime watching take off.

I watched essentially 4 anime prior not fully understanding the medium or watching with a purpose. Due the my personal emotional attachment to the series and the series's bittersweet ending, I began to crave more of the emotional satisfaction as well as some sort of personal conclusion to the rather heartbreaking ending. It's kinda ironic now because after watching several more emotional shows, I realize there isn't much of a way to satisfy a tearful ending to an anime except to watch more.

I am well aware that the anime has many flaws, especially how rushed the ending was and the unanswered major plot holes, but I owe almost my life to it. I was primarily playing video games before I got into anime and I was bored of it. The same old formula just replayed in different ways was getting boring. Most of all, I was struggling emotionally from depression and a lack of friends. I never went out to hang out, much less talk to anyone in school. I began to act up a little from what I believe was a want to feel. Anime brought me back. I began to reconnect with emotions I forgot I had and I realized sadness isn't always bad, cause everything needs to end and the bittersweet sadness is what makes life. Another thing to note is that no matter what ends in your life, anime is always there to go back and rewatch which I love. Hearing certain anime openings can bring me back to different times and I remember everything happening during my life at the time I watched that show.
It took some time but in real life, I found new friends as well. I connected with other anime watchers and we all started watching seasonal anime and discussing it every week. It gave me something to look forward to in life and frankly, it was the only social interaction I had. But it was enough, and I was glad for it.

I fully support Darling in the FranXX for multiple reasons. The animation style was just right for me with not much exaggerated and low-detail gag drawings. The soundtrack is by far my favorite, I have it all downloaded on my phone and computer. The characters were somewhat diverse and could have been used for a lot more if they extended the series. The storyline would have been great if it weren't for the abrupt explanation to everything. Episode 13, The Beast and the Prince, is by far my favorite episode of an anime ever. It gave much needed emotional attachment and depth to the two main characters. It was what boosted the anime so much more for me. This anime had the right mix of action, slice-of-life, drama, and romance for me. I even bought the DVD and I plan on purchasing the book (not the manga, I'm already reading that) as well.

To sum it up, Darling in the FranXX is the anime that started my anime watching and by doing that, it saved my life from emotional problems I was having at the time.

Dragon Ball Z as the earliest form of a power fantasy that I can remember in 96, though I wouldn't recognize anime as anime until years later.

Fullmetal Alchemist which is the "first" anime that I watched in 2006 and was a pretty great show to start on after seeing clips of it in AMV Hell.

Neon Genesis Evangelion for setting a pretty high bar for how mature anime could be to me at the time I started watching anime, and it was the show that got me started in the GFX and AMV arts in 2009. And also because of AMV Hell.

And of course Ikkitousen for showing me that an series don't have to be "good" in order to be entertaining, specifically as a foil to Evangelion, and it's become my niche for anime wallpapers and AMVs since 2010.

And the honorable mention goes to Yu-Gi-Oh! for Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged.

Clannad is definitely number one for me. No show has made me feel that level of emotion ever.

Dragon Ball Z and Yu Yu Hakusho because nostalgia.

Bakemonogatari simply because it hit every genre that I am into perfectly for me.

Oh, I can't forget about the Tokyo Ghoul anime adaptation. I have never been so disappointed in a show in my life.. well, besides Guilty Crown.
