10's all around, I'm not the most advent anime watcher but I have seen my fair share and this by far was the best.

First of the character's and plot is absolutely amazing. Each of the main cast gets plenty of development and actually feel like real people instead of just walking stereotypes. By the end of the anime, you care about each one of the characters so much, that you feel as if they were you own brothers.

Pretty much it contains everything that is good about anime without falling into many of the pot-holes. There are "gooder than good" characters but they actually have to read more

Preliminary
Dropped this show like a bad habbit, never seen a main character. Scratch that in c haracter, as pathetic as the guy in this show. 50% of the time while watching this you will be wondering "why doesn't this guy just do X". The show tries to convey the lost of innocence and the darkness of the human soul, but fails miserably in the fact that it tries to do this through completely trivial bullshit.

1. Why doesn't main character just deny he stole the uniform, the girl accusing him is hated by everyone especially the teacher and no one would believe her.

2. Why is read more

Shingeki no Kyojin starts on the premise of mankind being on the brink of destruction from titans. From there, it focuses on the main characters ambition in destroying all the titans. From the above it would seem like your pretty average anime but for multiple reasons it's plain amazing.

Attack on Titan literally has the best music soundtrack i have heard in an anime. If i could rate the music above a 10 i wouldn't hesitate. Every single piece is amazing an appropriate. The above also goes for the art, the animations, especially when they are using the 3D gear is plain bad ass.

As far as read more

One of the best manga I have had the pleasure of reading. It should be noted that even though this manga contains mature themes, it definitely is not an ecchi. The focus is mainly on the main character and his journey to adolescence. I really enjoyed this manga because it's gets suprisngly deep during the middle and end. At first it focuses on the comedy aspect but then starts to move towards questioning human morality and integrity, society, love, and personal integrity.

Oddly enough, i think this epilogue would have been better has a prologue, especially how this movie series handles it's timeline. I accidentally watched this part first of the entire series and enjoyed it alot more then when i watched it last in order. However this might be because i was already familiar with the character Shiki before even watching the movies. Eitherway i like the mysterious fill and vibe of this episode so 8.

An anime is huge potential, an excellent premise ruined by poor execution. They diluted the plot with shallow and redundant romance. Every single character in the show is one dimensional, the main character is a Mary Sue and has more plot armor than the millennium falcon.

Despite people claiming this is one of the best anime ever made, i really have to wonder if this was the first anime they ever watch. 5 for average.

As far as anime movies go, one of my all time favorites. While the entire Kara no Kyoukai isn't a "10" in my opinion, part 5 definitely is. The way time is portrayed is pure genius, and the main antagonist is absolutely perfect.

I usually don't give out 10's but The Disappearance of Haruhi deserves it. As far as anime movies go, it's the cream of the crop.

I already know what your thinking. Oh god not another fanboy. In truth I though the regular TV series was painfully average and I rate it as a 6. However the movie literally fixes everything that was wrong with the TV series.

Animation and art is perfect, as well as sound. Unlike the series, the movie has an actually plot and is outstanding with strong character development. Would recommend this movie to anyone.

Definitely an anime you should watch if your looking for something good. With that said, i would say it's above average but isn't nearly as good as some people say. The ending was a Deux Ex Machina asspull by the author to force a happy ending. The sin of character development was committed on multiple occassions, making supporting characters make decisions not based on personality but on whats most beneficial to the main character.
