I'm just gonna rage and rant about my thoughts about this "top 100" anime list. One how the fu*k is fate stay night ubw higher than fate zero?! In my opinion it should be the other way around. Most importantly how is it that sao is higher that the fate series?! I mean come on now people, not to hate on sao or anything but it is a very and highly overrated anime of all time. Heck Mob psycho 100, your lie in April , clannad,and other shows should have been in higher places than sao and don't get me started on love live. Seeing this list makes me believe that Japan does have bad taste in anime And I'm sorry if anybody got offended by my response to this "top 100" anime thingy. My throat hurts from yelling out cursing words while reading this list and I'm gonna end it here
