What do you mean shitty taste? Most of the shows in top 10 are for kids, or shows that been running for years. Look at the more popular shows in the u.s Naruto, and Bleach, they hardly do good in ratings, while the less popular One piece gets better ratings. Different cultures you know, different taste!

Lol Japanese people have shitty taste in anime (with the exception of Gintama/Bleach)

Top 9 sucks ass ... geez, why would someone belive that actually someone sane would watch smtg like that? :D
What still bothers me is, why is blue dragon there? It dosnt look so awfully childish and stupid as the rest.

The only animes that made it to this top are :
blue dragon, Bleach, Gintama, Shugo Chara!

:( its moments like this when i think blondes are better than japanese chicks

Sazae-san has been #1 for many years, and will probably stay there as long as it continues. <3
