Best Anime Ever
Since nobody posted something here,I might do this myself xD
I think something similar is in General Manga Discussion or something,but anyway....
So,as the title says,what are your faves?
(I watched some animes,but I kinda forgot alot :P)
Yu Yu Hakusho
I´ll add some more series if I remember them (that is,when somebody else posts them )
[If the mods think this thread is uncalled for,delete it ^^]

I have alot of favorites, so hard to choose, but my top 5 are in order
1. Byousoku 5cm
3. Lucky star
4. Kimi ga nozomu eien
5. AH! My Goddess series
wut no Tri-gun? Cowboy bebop?
and no FUCKING GUNDAM ZETA
Yu Yu Hakusho had the best ending ever.
^I got no time atm for watching anime...So I haven´t seen those,even if they´re a must xD
Cowboy Bebop. Second place is Yuyu Hakusho.
I stopped watching anime and reading manga 3 years ago.
I'm only more or less sure about the top 2:
1 Serial Experiments Lain
2 Ghost In The Shell Stand Alone Complex
3 The Twelve Kingdoms
4 Code Geass (which is not always good, but then it's fun because it's bad)
Personally I felt gypped by the show's ending. The manga did it much, much better. It didn't have that "Now I'm not coming home for two more years for no reason" plot hole as well as another few stories.

Dragon Ball/Z - People can laugh all they want. This was like a modern epic. Long, drawn out battles between demi-gods over silly little things like pride and control which ultimately resulted in the innocent deaths of so many. (Who were thereafter usually resurrected; but I digress.) DBZ's overall story without the episodic-details is fucking awesome.
Yu Yu Hakusho - God that was a fun story to watch. If they could have just dragged out that final arc another twenty episodes it would have been amazing. It turned into DBZ-filler at the end unfortunately. All of a sudden the little ice guy (Toya) could fly and pulverize boulders. Yeah...
Trigun - If ever there was an anime that stuck with me and made me look at humans from an outside perspective without also depressing me, Trigun was it. An immortal character who suffered to protect the people who hated him. An immortal who would never kill and never forget the deaths of those he loves. An immortal who enjoys life like no one else. It was beautiful.
Gungrave - Quite possibly the best premise for a story I've ever seen. Two friends going from nothing at the bottom of a slum to high-ranking Mafiosos with the most climactic betrayal I've ever seen - then a resurrection into a world of grotesquely monsterized caricatures of what the main character used to know. Simply incredible.
Tenchi Muyo (All of them) - I'm not sorry. They may not be very deep. They may not be very serious at all; but I remember these things, no joke, better than the faces and voices of those I grew up with. I can sense a line of Tenchi Muyo faster than I can identify my own face. Pure. Unadulterated. Joyous hilarity. The best romantic (harem) comedy I've ever known in anime form.
Gundam Wing - If you forgive some of the physics of how things worked in it, Gundam Wing was the most realistic depiction of the future in any of the Gundam stories. I related heavily to the characters and the conflicts as a whole. It would make one hell of a live action movie.
Cowboy Bebop - I don't have to explain this one. Everyone else will.
Honorable mention: Furi Kuri and Paranoia Agent. I actually freaked out the first time that puppy-doll moved on its own.
God I wish GUNNM had a decent anime form.
EDIT: Instead of posting twice on something like this, I'll just amend some movies onto the end of mine.
Vampire Hunter D
Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust
Galaxy Express 999
My Neighbor Totoro

If you don't have Cowboy Bebop on your list, you need to jump off the nearest cliff right away.
And why does nobody have Slamdunk or GTO on their list? Tasteless barbarians.
Full Metal Panic - all of them
GITS - Stand Alone Complex and to a lessor extent Solid State Society
Place promised in our distant past
Evangelion (with English dub. I know it's blasphemy to most, but this is the only anime I've watched where I hated the Japanese voices)
