            How are the anime moviesSpirited Away (2001) - IMDb and Paprika (2006) - IMDb not on the top ten? I thought those movie were like anime movie classics. xD
            Others would be Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu ,Black Rock Shooter OVA,and 5cm per a Second


            Anime-wise:

            - Black Rock Shooter
            -Bakemonogatari
            -The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzimiya
            -Angel Beats
            -Toaru Majutsu no Index
            Toaru Majutsu no Railgun
            -
            Puella Magi Madoka Magica
            -Clannad
            -Stein;gate
            - Fate/Stay Night
            and many more....

            Then if I was allowed to list the current spring anime that I am currently watching they would be :
            -Hyouka
            -Accel World
            Tasogare no Amnesia
            -Sankarea

            Then again this is only my opinion but feel free to check these series out if you are interested in the slightest .The list I compiled is only some of the anime I found to be awesome. :D

              Ive seen Spirited Away and Paprika but they dont fit my style of Anime that i like to watch and if we want to bring another classic into this no one has mentioned Wings of Honneamise (1987) - IMDb which is considered and Anime master peice.

                  I watched hundreds of shows but I don't watch just every anime show anymore, I have very high standards and I can figure if a show is unique or worthy by just watching the first episode.
                  I believe that over the years the animation and effects are getting better so older anime will show less eye candy.

                  Here are my favorite shows, now linkified to aniDB description and years were added.

                  Series:

                  Hana-saku​ Iroha 2011

                  Summer Wars 2009

                  Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works 2010
                  Spirited Away 2001


                  * - Visually stunning or has unique animation
                  XC - Comedy
                  Red ones are better than the others IMO.
                  Note: the Avatar titles are American animation but they're just as good and even better than a lot of anime.


                  Anyway, I don't understand how you can place deadmen wonderland in the top ten, only the first few episodes were great and then they simply destroyed the anime by cramming it to only 12 episodes while throwing the good stuff out, bottom line: it sucked.

                    As i stated before its only my top ten and everyones is going to be different ofcourse. I did like deadman wonderland as it was watchable and it did keep some sort of story through out the whole series. Of course you figure everything out in the first 2 episodes which sucks but the rest of the series is not bad compared to others. Darker Than Black i felt didnt hold up very well and after about 3eps i just couldnt even watch anymore. +1 for the mention of Death Note as that was an awesome series and has not been mentioned yet. Alot of great movies and series you listed above to give people a start with.

                            I was skimming through Samurai Champloo a few days ago. Good stuff.

                            Steins;gate is actually really good. Starts off slower, but then... yeah.

                            Some good TV series/OVA that haven't been listed are as follows:

                            Dennou Coil
                            Durarara!!
                            Eden of the East
                            Freedom
                            Monster
                            Natsume Yuujinchou
                            Planetes
                            Xam'd Lost Memories

                            As for movies:

                            Sword of the Stranger
                            The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

                              Beserk
                              Berserk (TV Series 1997) - IMDb

                              Its a short serie of like 20 episoes i think, but its a good the watch imo.
