Ground Rules

  • Has to be anime shows, no movies!
  • Not necessarily the best anime, but the best anime for beginners** (ie the show should be accessible for beginners)
  • Show length and if the anime stays good throughout it’s entire run will be factored in
  • The show does not have to originate in Japan to be Anime (ie American Anime is still Anime)
  • Shouldn’t have to be said but…. no HENTAI!
