      @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.

    For some strange reason my high school library’s manga collection seems to consist of mainly 2000s and late 90s manga. Stuff like almost the entire collection of Shaman King, Black Cat, Fullmetal Alchemist, Nana, and Death Note. The specific area where they are in the library is kind of old, so something about all of it brings me a strange sense of nostalgia. I love the 2000s.

    Only from the comments we can understand that FMAB is the best anime ever made. It is just a masterpiece and it is my favourite anime of all time. All the others like Nauto, One piece, Dragon ball and pockemon are just popular, nothing more. OK they are good anime exept Dragon Ball, which is terrible in my opinion, but these anime aren't liked from so many people as FMAB. They are just known to a 60% of people and not liked that much.

    No ghost in the shell. While i get and probably also have FMA Brotherhood on nr 1, i am also very fond of ghost in the shell, i really like the series themes, setting etc, so for me is close. Yet to finish death note, witch from what i have seen is good. Same with attack on titan, haikyu. Also got gurren lagann a couple of months ago hope is good. Either way i think choosing a all time best is subjective since comparing genres is well just hard. Either way for oncei cant say i have nothing againt nr 1, even tough i just finished it.
