My nomination is Chojiku Yosai Macross.
Because it's mecha sci-fi in the first place with many brilliant scenes for a series from the early 80's. Last but not least: It has transforming planes with a GERWALK hybrid mode. :P
I nominate Evangelion for best classic; even today, there are little to no anime that can match it in terms of characters and overall darkness.
I nominate Yu Yu Hakusho. The anime that consisted of excellent action, memorable characters, and not to mention one of the best opening songs of all time.

Yu Yu Hakusho
I support Dragon Ball, Evangelion and I've to say shame on all of you to not vote for Saint Seiya.
Mobile Suit Gundam
In the name of Sailor Moon, I will punish those who forgot this one. ... Someone had to do it.
Also, Tenchi Muyo!, got to show the original harem anime some respect. But mostly because I've just started watching Tenchi Muyo! GXP and plan to catch up on the ending that I just found out was released in 2003 for the original series. Can I nominate the three different Tenchi series as one?

I nominate Future Boy Conan (1978), an excellent classic, every single episode is really exciting and never lets me down. It delivers great messages in multiple themes such as friendship, war, peace and nature. The animation is fantastic despite its age. Opening/ending songs and the soundtrack are very good too.

I support Dragon Ball because it's everything a shounen should be.
I nominate Ranma 1/2 because, in my opinion, underrated thanks to Inuyasha and it's an amazing show.
Support Sailor Moon
I've decided on my third nomination: Digimon Adventure 01. Hopefully it's okay, I know it crosses the cut-off line a little, but it did start in 1999.
