Day 2 - Favorite anime you’ve watched so far

I'm going to do my top 15 because I really can't pick just one. If that makes me a big cheater than so be it.

To be honest, the biggest criteria of these picks is if I feel emotion just by thinking about it years later. My list is in alphabetical order as opposed to numerical.

Aim for the Top! Gunbuster (Or just Gunbuster in some parts of the world)

Two lady leads (and one super awesome dude), mecha and a space operaish touch (though only 3 episodes long so not sure if it counts?). A bit dated in some regards (can you imagine a black hole at the center of the galaxy? pure chaos!) but there's still a lot of heart and moving moments in this anime. We see the growth of two young women and their awesome kickassness. The pace is a bit slower than much of the following, but this OVA is a classic for a reason.

Birdy the Mighty: Decode (Second Season)

Season one creates the world, the various plot strands and what note. Season two picks up the pace, brings everything to an end, but as we know everything circles back on itself so its not really the end. The action, the story, the characters, its all amazing. And probably one of the best examinations of racism (albeit of the fantastic kind) that I've seen in awhile.

Digimon Tamers

Lol Digimon. While this show is either one you love or hate (at least according to Digimon fandom), I wholeheartedly loved this show. It shook up a lot of the conventions set in the previous two series (so if did like those conventions you might've hated this season). It started with a smaller cast, allowing more character development. And I loved those characters so. A sensitive leader, a cool nerd, a tsundere girl not afraid to be extremely aggressive and strong. Also the plot was more cohesive, darker, and thoughtful. Digimon heresy here, but this was my favorite season, shortly followed by the fifth (which is also darker and plays with conventions). Also this cartoon taught me the meaning of girl crushes (Ruki) and OTPs (Ruki and Ryo) which is the most important lesson anyone can learn. And it also drew me into the dark world of subs. Actually this show is probably what started me on the path of anime fandoms and fangirling.
