Top 100 Best Japanese Anime Series Of All Time

Like Tweet Pin it Share Share Email

This list is strictly made for Japanese Anime fans. Seriously, I have seen so many lists on internet about best Japanese anime but all of them just brag about Pokemon or Dragon Ball. These two are great shows (no offense) but Japanese anime is way beyond these two classic anime shows. After stumbling across dozens of ‘Best Japanese Anime’ lists I decided to make my own list on Japanese anime.

Consider this list as anime recommendations. Apart from including most popular Japanese anime series, I have also included dozens of under rated anime shows. Although Japanese anime movies are great but I have not included them to the list as I strictly wanted to show case the list of popular Japanese anime series.

I am an avid fan of Japanese anime and this list is flexible. So from time to time I will update this list of Japanese anime series and will add new anime shows (only the best ones). This list was last updated on October 22, 2016. So these are the 100 must watch Japanese Anime shows for 2016:
