  1. I think the fans is new , new generation and not watching the legend anime.
    I’m in out of Japan and one of the best I watch is one piece, Naruto, slamdunk, Dragonball, Kuroko no basket.

    1. I think they rank it by the plot and characters. Demon Slayer is the only one I disagree with being ranked in the top 20 because the plot is childish, to be honest, compared to any other animes like Gintama. I think the only reason that the Demon slayer got included in the top 20 is because of its over-budgeted animation.

  2. Demon slayer shouldn’t be in top 20 just becz of the animation, the 1st season was average, movie was good, I know the yet to be animated manga chapters are very very good, but it shouldn’t be in top 20 just becz of what that is animated

  3. Why are people don’t agree with bleach ,bleach has great storyline and character development and even more characters there were so good in manga now a day people only watch new generation anime why people why

  4. If you have never watched code geass, you shouldn’t talk about its ranking here. Code geass highly deserves 1st rank. The story, plot, the ending message was all On The Point. Really Really Good Use Of Lelouch In The Story Line & They Put Proper Focus On Other Characters Like Nunually, Suzaku, Kallen Which In some parts of the story drew attention towards them as to their crucial role. Only Real Weebs Will Vote 4 Code Geass. Fake Weebs Like To Vote For Rent A Girlfriend & High School DxD.

  5. CLANNAD BABY!!!! Clannad is my favorite anime of all time and it does not get nearly enough love in lists and articles, glad to see it here.

  6. Everything is a matter of opinion. U think one piece or any other anime should be first it’s your opinion and everyone’s opinion differ.so just watch what u want
