Hey, been watching anime for a while, only really started within the last couple of years. My top five aren't in any particular order, not even sure if they are my top just random ones that I like^_^
Random Rant: please do not discredit an anime series based on it's "category" or after watching just 1 or 2 episodes. The first shows ignorance in that nothing can ever really be just one thing. And the other, many anime shows develop throughout the series, note the word develop, that is the basis of all series.
