    I've only seen about seven or eight of those and there are several I've never even heard of. I assume this is limited to things that have been dubbed. If so, they must have had a hard time naming 50 if they added CCS with it's terrible dubbing and all.

    I also notice a terrible lack of One Piece. If they're going to forget the travesty that was Card Captors, why keep One Piece off the list? Basically, this list is completely worthless (Eva at #6? what?).

    Oh, and Cowboy Bebop is definately not the #1 anime of all time.

    Glad to see that Paranoia Agent, My Neighbor Totoro, and Ghost In the Shell on their list.

    No complaints about Cowboy Bebop being number 1! :D

    How can they have Gundam 0080 War in the Pocket on the list though, and not even the orginal MS Gundam? TBH, I always thought 0080 was the worst of the 4 main UC storyline ones, with the original being the best.

    I am not sure that Pokemon belongs on that list, however DBZ does. I dont know where, but it deserves to be on it.

    Pokemon... no...

    DBZ, Yuyu Hakusho, Ruroni Kenshin (unless thats what they mean by Samurai X) and Naruto need to be on there.

    No Spirited Away?

    Spirited Away was good, but I'm not surprised it wasn't on.

    I am shocked out of DBZ, Sailor Moon, Naruto, NONE made it. Those shows are/were INSANELY popular at the time that they were ran. At least put 1.

    Totoro does not deserve 19th. It's good, but not 19th.

    well I hated the pokemon shows.....I just thought because sooo many kids love the show that would make it one of the greats. But DBZ was one of the best Animes Ever...has to be top 10 atleast...

    It might only take into account anime that have finished in the United States.

    If that's the case, DBZ, and Sailor Moon (bad translations and all) need to be on there. Bleach will be on there in another 10 years or so, once the thing actually ends (it's about 80 episodes behind Japan, and THEY'RE smack in the middle of a story arc), so will Naruto.

    Also, any and all films made by Miyazaki need to be on that list. I don't really care where they are. They're all brilliant.

    No, no you didn't. In fact, I think you just broke it more.

    Also, Rurouni Kenshin did deserve to be on there instead of Samurai X.

    I would assume they meant the original version of Cardcaptor Sakura, not the edited version. Cause the edited version is called Card Captors.

    They have been known to goof up from time to time.

    Heck in that issue I caught 2 mistakes.

    Mistake #1: They said that there was never any plans for a 3rd Voltron series based on Lightspeed ElectroGod Albegas. But they did make a toy of that robot under the Voltron line.

    Mistake #2: They said that Takashi's castle was on G4 (unless they added it really recently). I think they are refering to Ninja Warrior.

    Also in the magazine, they had an interview about the 2nd season of Black Lagoon, which is probably cancelled by now.

    Plus they have yet to even mention the whole Geneon thing...

    I never finished Black Lagoon season one. I pretty much lost interest in it and have no desire to ever finish it.

    Also, just because a toy was made, doesn't mean there were ever plans for a show. For example, as far as I know, there are no plans for a Machine Robo Mugenbine series even though the first Mugenbine appeared on the last episode (which wasn't included on the DVDs) of Machine Robo Rescue. Now, there's a whole line of Mugenbine (many more than there were Machine Robos) and there is no show in sight. The last episode was brilliant in that way. Not only did it give closure to the series, but they also promoted their new toy line. Genius.
