See Which Anime Made IMDb’s Top 250 TV Series List

IMDb (Internet Movie Database) recently shared a list of the top 250 TV series of all time. The list is based on user reviews, and a total of 28 anime series made the cut. Japanese users took note, pointing out a few expectations that weren’t met—as translated over at RocketNews24—and sharing some surprise at the “distinct lack of moe-type anime.”

So what anime made the list? Here are the series along with where they fall on the list of 250 TV shows:

246. FLCL 
225. Detective Conan
213. ​Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
205. Trigun
177. Hellsing Ultimate
159. Mushi-Shi
158. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
143. Monster
141. Rurouni Kenshin
134. Neon Genesis Evangelion
128. YuYu Hakusho
120. Samurai Champloo
106. Fullmetal Alchemist 
92. Berserk
91. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
87. Dragon Ball Z Kai

85. Steins;Gate
78. Hunter x Hunter (2011)
76. Dragon Ball (North American version)
71. Dragon Ball (Japanese version)
66. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2
63. One Piece
57. Attack on Titan
48. Dragon Ball Z (Japanese version)
44. Dragon Ball Z (North American version)
32. Death Note
28. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

And… taking the top spot for anime…

24. Cowboy Bebop

That sure is nearly every version of Dragon Ball, isn’t it? We’ve already fixed the numbers once, but there might be more slight spot-shuffling in the future so keep that in mind when looking over the list. What do you think about the series that made it? Any you think should take the top spot, or at least one of the other available spots along with the rest of the world’s TV output?
