A few golden series.

I don't want to spoil anything here so I won't mention much about the series individually. This list consist of a few carefully selected series from different genres that I believe are some of the best within their specific genres. (Note that I did not chose one serie from each genre or anything along those lines. I simply chose my absolute favorites among all animes I've watched) The reason that ef - a tale of melodies isn't there is because I felt that ef - a tale of memories was slightly better... but I feel like watching melodies before memories is a must! There are multiple seasons of the same anime at some points (K-On! and K-On!! is an example) the reason for this is because I felt that both seasons were consistent in quality and neither was better than the other. The shows are not listed in any order btw.
1 Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

It came before and is better than both Clannad and Air.

Because Haruhi is pure love.

11 Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu

This series is both hilarious and cute. It appeals to people who like RPG as well but you don't nescessarily have to like RPG to enjoy this.

12 History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

One of the best ecchi series out there. The ecchi doesn't defile the plot at all and the show is hilarious!

The characters' situation in this show and their interractions are hilarious.

MOE-blob. Azunyan is pure love.

15 K-On!!

Because season 2 was as good as season 1.

16 Love Hina

Best comedy-romance-ecchi out there! It's heartwrenching, heartwarming, funny and simply just amazing.

It also has the best sound track of any show I've ever watched.

17 My-Hime

Friendship can't get to a higher level than this series... oh, my GOD, it's one of the best series through history.

18 Rosario to Vampire

Because I'm a sucker for cute vampires.

Also one of the better ecchi's out there.

19 Rosario to Vampire Capu2

Because season 2 was also awesome.

20 Angel Beats!

Unique and not like Clannar, Kanon or Air... but at the same time you'd probably like this if you like any of the other. This show's story is complex and simply amazing.

Thanks for the list! :) I'll be sure to watch <a href="" target="_blank" title="<h5>Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu</h5><ul class='entryDetailsBar'><li class='type'>OVA (6 eps)</li><li>Toei Animation</li><li class='iconYear'>2005</li><li><div class='ttRating'>3.5</div></li></ul><p>When Asaba sneaks into the school at night for a quick swim, he doesn’t expect to see a strange, vacant-minded girl with orbs stuck in her wrists right there with him. Stranger yet is when the police come to take her away... but to his surprise, he sees her the next day at school, a new part of his class! His interest in the girl piques the jealous curiosity of his friend Akiho, but between air raids, military operations and a possible alien invasion on the horizon a love triangle is the least of Asaba’s worries. Will Asaba come to terms that the fate of the world and the fate of the girl he loves are two very different things?</p><div class='categories'><h4>Tags</h4><ul><li>Aliens</li><li>Romance</li></ul></div> <div class='myListBar sep '> <h4>my anime:</h4> <span class='status4'></span> Want to Watch </div> " data-class="tooltip-full">Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu thanks to you.
