My top 10 (in no order)
And this is the Anime! Manga can be very different!
1) Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne
Why?: It was the first anime I saw undubbed. It makes me sentimental when I watch it.
Episodes: I think there are 52...
2) Haruhi Suzumiya
I like the light novels, the dub is awesome, and again It is the first anime I watched that wasn't dubbed by 4Kids. Besides, I love the fact that it is narrated by a sarcastic guy.
It is short, sweet, teaches me, ha wonderful fanart, and it makes me scream "TAKE THAT POLITICALLY CORRECT!" I like the stereotypes.
Episodes: over 100 5 min episodes
4): Princess Tutu
I own the entire series. It is magical and it reminds me of the stories I read as a kid while also being dark.
The Ultimate tsundere meets the ultimate sarcastic, misunderstood, guy. I like the plot. While it is a comedy, there are some scenes that tug at your heart.
6) Ouran High School Host Club
Funny. I love a good genderbending story. I love the mutual ignorance. The plot is good as it all comes together, but it also seems crazy. (Haruhi in wonderland anyone?)
7) Full Moon wo >>Puppy Doodoo<<
I love it I laughed and cried and sang along so much...and then cried some more.
If you are a female otaku like me, you will enjoy the slow pace and all the references to other anime and just understandable things like procrastination, mosquitoes, cell phone addiction, and growing up.
Episodes: in the 20's I think...
: Love Hina
My brother showed it to me, okay? It is funny, a little too much panty shots for comfort, but cool.
9): Pokemon Original.
One of my guilty pleasures is to just pop in an old Vhs and relive childhood.
Episodes: Don't pretend you don't know
10) Fruit's Basket:
So lighthearted and cute! Touru(tohru) is the type of person I want to be like.
