And really, why shouldn't we be afraid? In case you haven't heard, life is terminal. Cigarettes will kill you. So will your cellphone. Your car is a deadly weapon and alcohol is a quiet killer. Don't lick the lead-based paint on the walls. Don't lick the back of a postage stamp and certainly don't lick any strangers! That will bring you down quickly indeed. Don't drink the water but don't drink less than eight glasses a day. Your enviroment is toxic, your natural resources are dwindling, your days are numbered, but what ever you do, don't panic! The stress, don't you know, will kill you.

I'm going to follow up on what Em said.
People, I am so tired of asking everyone to read every post. You should at LEAST be reading the post that introduces the topic.
I'm going to say this once more:
READ EVERY POST BEFORE REPLYING. IF I SEE ANOTHER REPEATING POST OR A POST GOING AGAINST THE GENERAL GUIDELINES OF THE TOPIC (ex: Em said ten. TEN. Not 8. Not 23. TEN.), IT WILL BE DELETED AND YOU WILL BE WARNED.

This is for EVERY TOPIC. I really am tired of wasting time deleting and editing posts. As a mod, I have to read every post, people. It won't kill you to read the posts in the topic which you will be replying. [/b]

Jeez it looks like everyone here watches cartoon network or something. I don't see very many people mention truly good animation. I saw some select few Hellsing's and Trigun's. I give credit to people who have seen Grave of the Fireflies(even though the damned thing is depressing as all hell).

Whether or not it has been on CN doesn't determine if it was "good" anime. Even Trigun has been on CN, which I thought was just okay.

Thier is no need to be rude. People watch what they can, however they can. And please, read over everything before you make these types of assumptions. Only 3 out of 10 of the animes I listed were mainstream. 4 if you still count Sailormoon as mainstream.
Also, it's one's own prefernce to determine whether or not an anime is "Truely good". Some people may adore "Anime A" while others think it's mediocre.
And really, why shouldn't we be afraid? In case you haven't heard, life is terminal. Cigarettes will kill you. So will your cellphone. Your car is a deadly weapon and alcohol is a quiet killer. Don't lick the lead-based paint on the walls. Don't lick the back of a postage stamp and certainly don't lick any strangers! That will bring you down quickly indeed. Don't drink the water but don't drink less than eight glasses a day. Your enviroment is toxic, your natural resources are dwindling, your days are numbered, but what ever you do, don't panic! The stress, don't you know, will kill you.

Em asked us not to add or edit anymore. He [you are a guy, right?] was counting them up. I'm not sure why he didn't post the results as stated . ^^;; Probaby too busy.

These are based on what I've seen already:

1. Tenchi Muyo! (including its spinoffs, and yes, Shin Tenchi was better than Tenchi Universe)

2. Macross (the original version, not that Robotech hack job)

3. Hand Maid May

4. I My Me! Strawberry Eggs

5. Outlaw Star

6. Pokemon (before the later seasons were hacked to bits by 4Kids; now it's sub all the way!)

7. Gundam Wing

8. Moldiver (easily one of the most underrated anime series!)

9. Ronin Warriors

10. The Slayers
"After all these years, you know it's not about control. It's about trying to do everything I can. And for you, it's about setting an example. Everyone looks up to you. They listen to you. If you tell them to fight, they'll fight. But they need to be inspired, and let's face it, 'Superman'...the last time you really inspired anyone... was when you were dead." -- Batman, to Superman, Infinite Crisis, issue 1

I figured that you had your reasons for not doing it, but I still had to uphold your post! My comment respectfully retracted.
