It's been years since I began writing for Otaku Revolution, and some of you regular readers (all two of you) may still be in the dark as to what taste in anime I have. So, though it's an often-changing element of my anime fandom, I've decided to make a list of my favorite anime, ranking them for all to see, and justifying my choices.


When people make top ten lists of their favorite anime, they tend to make the same mistake. That is, they group together TV series, OVAs, and movies. A TV series and a movie are two different beasts. You wouldn't lump together live-action TV series with live-action movies, would you? Would you even lump together American or other Western animated productions together, TV shows with movies? Of course not. But for anime, somehow this tends to be the way we do things. Well, I, for one, refuse.


You see, I figure that TV shows are TV shows and movies are movies, and they both deserve their own separate lists. But then there are OVAs, which are strange. They often have production values resembling a movie's production values, but they're also episodic at times, too. Therefore, I have split OVAs between my two lists. Features that are multi-episode I have put together with the TV shows. Features that are one-shots I put in with the movies. It's not a perfect process, but it's better than lumping everything together.


Each anime will have its own blog entry. I will start with my TV series/multi-part OVA list and then give my movie/single-part OVA/TV Specials list, starting with #10 and ending with #1. Expect the first #10 sometime this weekend.


I look forward to your feedback.
