Forum News: The nomination phase of the Community Awards 2014 is live! Visit new sections for Nisekoi and Kingdom!
I nominate Mushishi , Cowboy Bebop and Kara No Kyoukai
There is overwhelming support for Hunter x Hunter (2011) and after thinking about it for a while, I'm going to change my support for HxH and instead support Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann for best overall anime.
These are my nominations:
1) FMA: Brotherhood
2) Magi: the magic labirynth.
3) Jojo's Bizzare adventures; from the Openings, the animation and the graphic.

I originally nominated Another but i'd like to change my nomination to support for Claymore as best anime overall.
Steins gate, fate zero and, since Claymore manga sucked SOOOO hard, Madoka Puella Magi.
I mean, i admit complaining is a bit stupid and i am kind of embarrassed to even mention this but really? Fairy Tail?
That's why I told everyone to familiarize themselves with the nominees before voting
Which one do you think deserved to win, anyway, among the finalists?
In the end the hunters gonna win
Among the finalists, Cowboy Bebop deserves to win in my opinion. Steins Gate is highly enjoyable (i really liked it) but has too many plot holes to be considered the best. Fate/Zero could be considered as well, the character development, the interactions between the characters (typical Type-Moon) and of course the animation are highly superb but in my mind, Cowboy Bebop has always been the title to beat regarding overall quality.
Cowboy Bebop achieved (almost) the same status with Evangelion in my mind, so if it's win I have no problem with it. It's simply a classic.

I agree with Evangelion. The thing is though that EVA is a really specific type of anime that only addresses viewers who are interested in thought provoking and deep anime which by no means is the majority of anime viewers. That´s why it is no surprise that EVA is not among the finalists. Cowboy Bebop on the other hand addresses a very broad spectrum of viewers. It can be a light watch if you want it to (of course except the finale) but it can also bring you to think and analyze the characters.
Also, you should not be worried in voicing your opinion; as long as it is still in accordance with common courtesy, you're fine to say anything inside your head. Voters could choose what they want to choose, they maybe in some regards affected by your comments, but do not worry about that too much.
Cowboy Bebop is getting my vote.
I loved that series so much. From beginning to end there wasn't a single episode I didn't enjoy and the last one was such a fantastic climax.
