anime listing

An attempt at listing and rating all anime series I've ever seen:

- indicates shows I gave up on or that stopped after a certain number of episodes, meaning I haven't seen enough of them to warrant an honest rating.

You need to adjust your scale. Nothing scores lower than 5 :\

I'm not trying to evenly distribute 1 - 10 over all the shows. Rather I looked at each one and thought is it unbelievably bad (1) to average (5) to perfect (10). Consider 1 - 4 reserved for shows that are so crappy I haven't even seen them. :)

Haven't you seen Neon Genesis Evangelion? Everybody's seen that. I agree though that stuff like Sailor Moon or DBZ shouldn't be on the list though. You have great taste. Most of my favorite stuff is on the list which is cool because I like the most original stuff the best. Anything Shirow Masamune has done is good too.

I haven't viewed anything of the Neon Genesis Evangelion saga yet... can't say it appeals to me but my preconceptions are probably wrong.

I'm open to more recommendations since most of the small batch of shows I'm currently following either have very infrequent releases or are kinda boring at times.

I can't believe you gave Gantz a 5 i would at least gave it a 8 or 9.

Milo wrote on 2005/10/26:
Well, it was engrossing for a while, but ultimately, watching Gantz was one of the most depressing experiences of my life.
