I started watching anime after I discover that many of my favorite Directors & Movies have been inspired by anime or manga. I decided to give it a try and I was hooked on the creativity of the stories. So, I embark on a journey to discover the Best Anime from all Time. I keep an open mind for any anime that has a good story to tell.

My header is taken from the credit scenes from Attack on Titan, it depicts one of their church murals, which shows the first titan giving the power to humans, and therefore how human-titans came to be.

At some point, I decided to start watching in release chronological order to give more time for sequels to be created and be able to watch the full story without waiting. I went as far back to the 1960s, I've been watching every anime that ranks higher than 3.5 on this site for the chosen year, even for the genres that I"m not fond of (slice-of-life, episodic comedies, romance, moe, ecchi & harem), it helps me be more open minded and I have found some that I really like, but dropped a lot that annoyed me too. Below 3.5 rankings I only watch the ones that I really think I will like (sci-fi, dark themes, action, thrillers, fantasy). Some OVAs & Shorts does not rank high due to lack of popularity and I have discovered some real gems at the bottom of the pile. My journey through all of these years is what I've been placing in the Best Anime Lists, and currently, I'm going through 2013.

Trigun and desert punk are not in the list because they are more post apocalypse then cyberpunk.

Hey! No problem! Really liked your lists! :D

I see, it always good to stay open-minded! :) You never know what you might find! 

I'll make sure to check out your lists; maybe I'll follow your example sometime and only watch series from one year, definetly sounds like a good idea. 

Yeah waiting for sequels can be tiring...with Berserk, who knows if it'll ever be finished....

 I agree with you, Stardust Crusaders was a little too long; and the stands are pretty simple...I think in later parts they are better, since the powers get more creative (though they don't always make sense). Personally I prefer the newer animation style (and manga artwork), but I know there are also many that like the old style much more...

Ohh, I see. Well, That makes a lot a sense. I never thought that a show like One Piece had that kind of layers to it. How interesting!

Guess that I have a lot of info-digging to do ;)

Thanks For your answer.

By the way. What the meaning behind your header picture?

Oh wow you're planning to watch every anime released in 2012? Or just the ones with the highest rating? That's an interesting idea, I'm always juming around between ols an modern stuff...

I think I haven't watched any anime of the ones you mentioned so thanks for the recommentdations :)

Yeah I really like Jojo, I am very happy that Part 5 is currently airing. I loved DiU, hope you enjoy it as much as I do ;) Once you're finished I'd love to hear you thoughts!
