What My Top 5 Anime Says


From Haruhi. Not included on my list funnily enough.

After seeing Phossil’s post, and then Super rat’s post, and then Stripey’s post, I decided to post my own,  not just to see what my taste says about me, but to kill some time while Fringe downloads lol.

In no particular order, because choosing just 5 was hard enough, to put them in order too would be HELL.

  • Clannad
  • Genshiken
  • Lovely Complex
  • Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu
  • Pokemon

Short version: These 5 were picked from a list of 10, was hard. They say I like mostly mushy girly anime(C,LC,NH) with some fanservice and comedy thrown in, and then some nostalgic(P) and life-influencing anime(G,LC). (The others on my list of possibles were Kannagi, Whisper of the Heart, Rideback, The Cat Returns, Kanon. Again with the girly lol.)

This was fun, might do top 5 actors, tv series, movies etc etc aswell. Picking favourites is fun, hard, but fun. And my taste/judgement runs from good, to bloody awful lol. One instance of bloody awful is that I’ve started watch Dawson’s Creek for one actor in it lol. Two if you account for Ackles season 6 appearance. But I’ve started from 1.

Long version: (And slightly different interpretation of ‘what my 5 anime says’ lol)

Hmmm… Clannad could say I should be an angsty narssasic girl who likes obsessing over a boy/man I can never have, which…. isn’t entirely innaccurate lol. But I’m under no illusion that I’ll ever have Tennant, Cusack, Ackles, Collins, Padalecki, Firth etc etc etc lol. Not like the girls of Clannad who all fawn over Tomoya like they have a chance lol

Genshiken could say… I’m a massive geek. A big otaku. Which is super accurate, mainly because I watched Genshiken, and got more like this haha. I blame Genshiken lol.

Lovely Complex could say I have a complex about only going out with guys taller than me. Which is indeed correct. Very very correct. It did however… make me more… open…. BUT still…still…

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu could say I’m a total closet-otaku-ojou-sama. But, I ain’t. It could say I’m not good with dealing with my true self and hide behind a wall of some sort. Not so much lol.

Pokemon could say I like hunting monsters, training them and winning contests. Which I do, in games lol. But its more a childhood pleasure. I could have picked Cardcaptors or Moomins or Medabots or any of the other anime I saw in my childhood, but Pokemon is the one that made the most impact, its Pokemon to blame for all of this really. Without Pokemon, I’d probably just be a normal geek, OR, heaven forbid, not even a geek. Maybe even a high school musical-loving, soap-watching proper teen girl. Much prefer how I turned out though.

    Didn’t the girl from Lovely Complex learn that it’s alright to go out with a shorter guy at the end?

    But yeah, a respectable list, Genshiken is awesome. And Pokemon is fucking ultra awesome. Still, you need more giant robots in this list. Giant robots and porn. >=(

      She did. But I’m not her lol. I’m more open to the idea than I was before… but its just…. when they’re like 5’6 and you’re 5’11-6, its… odd…. the guy has to lean up… which I don’t like… Younger AND shorter, theres the kicker. My friends little brother had a crush on me, it was cute, as was he, but he was 2 years younger and shorter. By a fair bit. Still, if I ever need to attach myself/sink my claws into his family, I know where to go LOL.

    Lovely Complex rulez! and Genshiken is fun alright. I wished we have more of Genshiken…

  3. Matt Says:

    Cool. list- quite different to the ones I’d pick myself (only seen a bit of genshiken, and pokemon, of course.) Nice to see you don’t like high-school musical*shudder* lol. I’m tempted to start up my own blog now afeter reading yours for a while>.<

  4. Blowfish Says:

    Thats a nice mix.I especially didnt expect LovelyComplex to be on that list.It was actually a pretty good series wich I didnt expect in the first place XD

    And youve got some (virtual) balls for putting Pokemon on that List.I doubt that many would admit this ^_^

    • meimi132 Says:

      Pokemon is almost as nostalgic as it gets. As without Pokemon, Cardcaptors, Digimon, Monster Rancher and all those other dubbed anime wouldn’t have got on terrestrial TV for me to see. And I wouldn’t have found out that Moomins was anime too. Pokemon is love.

  5. super rats Says:

    Of those I’ve only seen Genshiken. I have a soft spot for that show, which I think a lot of us do. Nice for putting up Pokemon. Putting up something you liked from way back when is great. It’s like myself with Cowboy Bebop. I’d stopped watching anime for a few years and I wasn’t really a huge fan of anime. All my friends were into anime in high school. A number of years later Bebop caught my eye and I was hooked, so it’s probably going to stay a favorite…plus it’s a good show.

    I could do a top 5 for each genre…but I think my head would explode if I did an all-time top 5 for all anime.

  7. phossil Says:

    I think Pokemon its a very long show. Any particular season you liked? As for Clannad (and Haruhi) I liked both shows (yeah maybe C is a little girly anime which I enjoyed)

    • meimi132 Says:

      Of Pokemon, the original, Indigo League, not the orange league, no Brock, no dice. All the Johto was good, Master League was…. acceptable…but after…. it just got… meh…..

  8. RyoBase Says:

    Nice. Every time I’m thinking of Clannad, my tears drop for some reason.

  9. harunoyuki27 Says:

    Wow, this the first time that I’d see someone else’s top 5 anime including Lovely Complex. I love it so much despite the not-so-great animation! Not your typical romantic comedy, I must say. Clannad and LC made me cry a lot of times. xD
