by as-if-to-nothing-147-779170 | created - 31 Oct 2014 | updated - 31 Oct 2014 | Public

All the animes ive listed in here are the best of the best that ive seen all time, I dident list the other animes like psycho-pass, attack on gays(yeah sorry for sarcasm, but started as one of the best animes and ended like Wut in the *beep*) steins gate, guilty crown etc, because those series, as much as they may be great, they'll never reach the lvl of epicness of the ones listed in here for me.

PS: Also if you came here expecting to find: naruto, bleach, pokemon, onepeace, hunterXhunter and other mind formating BS, please go kill yourself :)
