Although there seems quite a disparity between the list presented below and Dark Diamond’s report on the top 100 anime of all time and Japan Probe’s reports on the top 50 according to Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs, I hope this list can spark similar debates as to what are the classics from the last decade, or that had at least some episodes first broadcast in the 1990’s. So, without any further ado, I present the top thirty 1990’s anime that the Japanese would most like to see once again. Note that this list contains only series whose run has ended. The data was collected from an unspecified number of members of goo Research’s online monitor pool between the 20th and 24th of July 2007. The scores represent the relative number of votes each anime series received relative to the number one selection. Here’s a short clip from YouTube of the top anime:
