      @BlackSunset AMVs yes, sir, yes, sir, totally truthful!
      My greatest favourites are FMAB and FMA. Dear pieces of my soul.
      They affected me so very deeply, I was unaffected by Infinity War.

      It is more popular, that's the only reason. The truth is that anime like code geass, death note, monster, cowboy bebop ect are 10 times better than the classic shonen anime, although i really love some shonen too.

    I'm kinda lost. I know that Naruto and Naruto Shippuden are linear storylines. My question is this. Why isnt Naruro Shippuden on this list? I mean, it started airing around 07/08 and continued into the 2010s. Like alot of other animes on this list, Shippuden started prior to 2010 and ended past 2010. Unless they're Watchmojo is considering Naruto as a whole? In which case their labelling is misleading. Or was is Shippuden not as good a series as the rest of the anime on this list?

    Seriously? No one added Mushishi on their list? And what happened to Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex? These recommendations are all for kids with the exceptions of Monster and Death Note.

    Hey,I just can't remember the name of this anime. If anyone can remember it's name, I'd really appreciate it. It has some kids and some titans. So,there are monsters and titans from all dimensions and there are like five giant titans that represent some elements or so

    Bro can someone thoroughly explain why FMA brotherhood is so popular and regarded as the best anime i watched the whole thing and found it boring and lackluster in action plus the comedy was put in at terrible moments and serious ones its not bad by any means but its like a 7/10 for me
