The criteria for this list is how unique and revolutionary said anime are and how much I recommend them. Keep in mind that the order of this list isn't based on how much I like them.
Series with no specials, OVA, omake and movies. Mainly 12 episoded.
The list contains titles I really enjoyed. If you look for some nice anime I would recommend, you will certainly find it here. Contains only shows, otherwise it would be totally swarmed with Ghibli...
Anime for Jamie to watch so I don't have to keep poking him.
This includes finishing shows that aired last year, shows that are airing, new shows, and all that jazz.
